really good hotel. Friendly, comfortable hotel - very clean. Walking distance, no night time restaurant, but plenty of places in Monaco. Two of our party are Gluten Free, we told the hotel on arrival and they went out and bought some special breakfast items. Really good place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Columbus hotel and the complimentary bus service excellent. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. However, found it strange they had no bar and no evening meals to purchase unless you wanted a take out. Staff very friendly and helpful. Complimentary wine on arrival a nice touch.

Although not located in the center of Monaco, I was able to walk to nearly every site I wished to explore. The rose garden commemorating Prince Grace is just across the street and worth spending time walking through it, The breakfast included with your room was quite wonderful and the room was modern, spotless and very well provisioned with quality...

Birthday treat booked through Cresta which included helicopter transfer although helipad is within walking distance from hotel transfers were included. We arrived early so hotel looked after luggage so we could get out straight away. The location for us was perfect its opposite the Princess Grace rose garden which must be beautiful in season.

First impressions of the Columbus were great, park up at the front, out come the men in red coats to park your car - €25 a day, basically the same price as a public car park in Monte Carlo. Into the hotel, you'll find friendly staff and a very sophisticated atmosphere, plus free coffee on tap. On to the rooms... More

The major advantage of this hotel is its price. You can stay in Monte Carlo for a reasonable price if you choose Columbus. Very good breakfast on the pleasant terrace overlooking the Prince Grace rose garden. Location a bit off centre, but still a walking distance. Close to shopping centre and the seafront (harbour) with many restaurants. Coffee available throughout... More

Location is superb. Flew in via helicopter and helipad is walking distance from hotel but no noise problems while we were there. Also in walking distance is, open top tourist bus stop, circus tent, seafront, restaurants, Princes car collection, Naval museum, zoological garden, football/athletics stadium, etc. Could not be beaten for location as the busy part of town is the...

I'm a regular (once a month on average) visitor to the hotel and as a business hotel it's just fine. The staff know me and are invariably friendly, helpful and they always give me my preferred room. Currently no restaurant and bar following a nasty industrial dispute with now-departed bolshy employees, but rumour has it that the bar will reopen... More

In a Principality where space is at a premium, I really expected a very tiny room when our large (40) tour group checked in for two nights in October 2014. Instead, we found ourselves with lovely spacious rooms that were clean and comfortable. While the Hotel offered only a meal at breakfast, we didn't find this at all restricting, as... More
