Great hotel, great experience, nice room with a good view, even got in the pool before the rain came down. We have been to this hotel a couple of times and had great times every time, the staff are very welcoming, restaurant is nice and its a handy location for a long weekend.

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. Our room was perfect, amazing view that had a partial sea view, bathroom with great shower,... More

Ben here a few times for business meetings as a friend has an apartment nearby. You can helicopter right to this hotel from Nice airport and that's not too expensive if you share with a few other passengers. The hotel is clean and staff are friendly and efficient. Restaurant is very nice and decent menu choice. There may be better... More

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.
