I have wanted to stay in this hotel for years since David Coulthard bought it. I know he does not own it anymore but I got my opportunity to stay at this hotel at the end of August this year for two nights. We walked from the station to the hotel and was warmly welcomed by the concierge. We were... More

Stayed for 2 nights in August. Firstly, positives. The rooms are clean, and the staff are fairly helpful and friendly. The bathrooms are very nice, and there was a good selection of English TV channels. On the downside, the hotel is very tired. The carpets in particular are worn and threadbare in places ruining an otherwise fairly pleasant ambience, it... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for sending your detailed review and give your honest point of view. Indeed our hotel need some renovation, although some public areas and a few rooms have already been renovated. For your information, the bar and the restaurant have been only closed since April following some restructuration. When you mention the price, please bear in mind... More

Booked this hotel for a spontaneous weekend getaway in Monaco. Even though the prices were steep, it was still one of the more affordable hotels in the area on such short notice. The location is very nice...Not completely in the center but only a short (and doable) walk away. We got a room with a balcony and view of the... More

Lovely hotel, immaculately clean and the whole place smells amazing. The rooms are simple but classy. The food is absolutely amazing. The breakfast buffet was the best I've had anywhere, so much selection and all fresh and delicious, unlike so many other continental buffets. Will def be back and highly recommend!

We booked the hotel based on availability with Avios rewards. At the time I requested a Deluxe room with sea views. At checkin it wasn't available and we were upgraded to Junior Suite. The room was great, low level, but good views of the Pool and ocean. The staff was most helpful and accommodating. Only negative is the continental breakfast... More

Dear Guest, many thanks for your kind comments and positive feedback. We are happy to hear you got a nice upgrading for a Junior Suite with terrace facing the sea. As for the breakfast, it is a hot buffet breakfast, not quite a Continental breakfast by French standards (choice of hams, cheeses, breads and viennoiseries, fruits juices, fruit salads, omelett,...

Dear Guest, many thanks for your kind and positive review about the Columbus. As for the pool, unfortunately, it does not depend on us and the sanitary problem which obliged the local authorities to close it was unexpectted. We have taken good note of your remark concerning the internet connections for future renovations. Best regards. C. More

Stayed 4 nights for holiday. I had already booked, before I realised the hotel was not actually in Monte Carlo but a quieter more residential area near the smaller harbour of Fontvielle. But don't let that put you off! Around that harbour there are a number of restaurants, overlooked by the palace. Once I found my bearings it's only a... More

We have stayed in the hotel for a night. The staff were very approacheable and helpful. It was quite peaceful when we stayed, well apart from the helicopeters flying in and out, probably because there were not much occupants yet.
