When does an hotel stop being an hotel? I ask because the Columbus has had no restaurant or bar for quite some time now, which makes it more of an upmarket B&B. I have no idea what the long-term plan is (or even if there is one) but there is no doubt that the hotel loses trade because of this... More

Dear "regular" guest, as it seems you know quite well our hotel! many thanks for a great and objective review. We do need a refurbishment but we have no specific date for a future renovation or a re-opening of the restaurant. Nevertheless, we need to mention that a restaurant or a bar are not mandatory to be considered legally as... More

Very good value, good choice of food for breakfast. No teapot in room but free cofee and hot chocolate is always available in the lobby, where newspapers are also available to read... More

This was a girlie 3 day City break booked with British Airways. We paid £220 each for bed and breakfast at the Columbus including flights. The Concierge was friendly and immediately volunteered info on Monaco and supplied us with a map. The room and bathroom was immaculately clean and roomy with a balcony. There were complimentary hot drinks 24/7. The... More

Hotel, great location but beginning to show its age. Staff very helpful but only B&B you have to go out for food and drink. If you want to visit the Casino go in the morning and you may be able to see it all, as we did, for just 10€. Lots of things to see and do around Monte Carlo,... More

The hotel is nice, the greeting at the reception is fine but not exceptionnal. Rooms are quite standard, maybe a little refreshment of the bathroom would be appreciated. Location is correct, depends where you want to go. Free wifi is very low, but you can of course pay to get a faster one.

We arrived within a 2 minute transfer from the helipad. We were greeted by reception very well, our request for a sea view room was received but the recommendation was to take a front facing room as they are bigger on the 3rd floor.
