This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and I honestly couldn't fault anything. Breakfast was great there was a good selection. Room was lovely (very comfy bed and quiet!). Pool was also very good and staff very helpful. The concierge staff are excellent. The only thing I could fault was that we couldn't connect to... More

The hotel is a businesslike hotel somewhat peripherally located if you are seeking the typical activities for Monte Carlo. Besides a great pool area (and spa service that we did not use) there is not much else to do at the location but the hotel offers free shuttle service that will bring you elsewhere in the city. Valet parking for... More

This 3 stars is really a 4 stars without the add ons a 4 star would offer like room service, restaurants , bars etc.. however, being on the back side of the port of Fontvieille, this hotel is just a perfect combination. Price is right and service too. Probably the best of quality & price of Monaco ! Try it... More

Stayed for one night during a recent trip to the French Riviera, the hotel isn't actually in Monte Carlo, it's in Fontville though actual Monte Carlo was easily accessible by taxi (about 15euros) or walking if you've got the time and don't mind the hills! The hotel itself was excellent, everything we were hoping for, we had a large king... More
