Yes I know the hotel is a bit scruffy round the edges but this did not put my off in the slightest. Lovely large room over looking the sea and princess grace gardens.

I liked the location, hotel's style, the view to the sea. What was missing for me was - there was no room service, to eat something you would need to call directly to the restaurants to order delivery and pay by cash later when they bring it to the room (they do have menus of some restaurants in the room)...

This is our 11th trip to Monaco but first time at the Columbus Monte Carlo. After staying there for 10 days I am not sure what took us so long.

The Columbus hotel is in Fontvielle a quiet and mainly residential area of Monte Carlo. This means that apart from Fontvielle harbour any other parts of Monte Carlo are a fair walk away. To compensate for this the hotel runs a shuttle bus which will take you into the centre and the staff which operate this service are some of... More

I would certainly recommend this place as somewhere to stay in Monaco. Although it is slightly far away from the main tourist areas (about 20 min walk), the hotel is decorated nicely, and we could not fault our rooms: a fully stocked minibar, clean all round, comfy bed, sea view and free products in the bathroom (always a bonus!)

The hotel was in the very nice less busy area of port Fontvieille with lots of great restaurants close by. In my opinion the hotel itself lacked atmosphere and had little character and seemed like a business hotel on the plus side it was very clean and had a lovely swimming pool and sun bathing area. Free coffee and cold... More

My daughter and I have just returned from a four nights stay at the Columbus Hotel.
