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...

Dear Guest, great and detailed review, many thanks for sending your appreciation. Indeed we have worked on our Wifi connection and it's now working very well and completely free, even high speed and without limit. Our guests can connect and leave the hotel. During one month, they will still have the connection and do not need to re-enter their identity.... More

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

This was in it's day a Buzzing place to be back in the day when my husband and I stayed pretty regularly and it did pain me to see some of the recent reviews that were not great to say the least!

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

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.

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
