“THAT ROOFTOP!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Stayed here on a rushed road trip through europe. didn't have the handiest parking - they direct you to a parking complex nearby - i'd recommend dropping off your bags at the hotel and then parking your car, otherwise you'd be dragging it up hill.
The hotel is just across the board into france, and is an easy walk to the casino, etc.

the room was small, with barely enough room for the suitcases on the floor, especially given the price of the place. BUT, that roof top! MAN!

I had only 1 night here, and right before checking out early at 7am my friend and i decided to quickly check it out. and oh. my. god! it was a magic moment. the sun rises over the ocean and it is nothing short of magic hour!
definitely made the stay worth it. it was one of the best views of my entire trip. just check out when sunrise is on your stay

Although its technically not in Monaco, this hotel is so close it suited us fine. Once you get the hang of the street layout it's super easy to find. Monaco uses its train station (Gare) as an access. The hotel is about 300m from the Beausoleil station entrance/exit, then you use the station escalators and lifts to take you down the cliffs into Monte Carlo. Once you get your head around it, it's great.
The hotel was clean, although our room smelt strongly of cigarettes. Large room (although just a standard), great range of toiletries provided. Breakfast was a decent enough variety, although it's only continental and you have to pay for real coffee. The hotel's roof has a terrace with great views- would be amazing in summer too!

Stayed here while working at the exhibition hall. Not the best hotel ever and the pictures on booking.com do flatter a bit. This is a oldish hotel that has recently had a once over in a modern style. hotel fixtures such as air con are old but apart from the air con everything was clean and functioned.
Breakfast was ok, continental with the ability to boil your own egg. Service was hit and miss such as getting down early for breakfast at 7am As we had to get to work but dispute everything being layed out and ready we were not allowed to start, even a cup of coffee was refused. Not the end of the world but hey ho.
Location is ok but it is up a steep hill above Monaco. Take time to figure out surroundings as there is a discrete lift nearby that will take you level with the marina and a bit of map work and a chat with reception will save aching legs.
The 115 bus from nice airport stops at the train station and is cheap and fast.
Overall average hotel with nice views from roof terrace. Stay hear if the price is good otherwise the Novotel is probably a better choice.
Oh and international tv is not unless you speak french, italian or German.

Whilst the hotel is very clean, the rooms are very small and basic. The staff seem to do anything to avoid eye contact, when we asked if we could put our valuable items in the safe, we were told by the receptionist that she wouldnt leave the desk just for that, pointing to my passport. The breakfast is adequate but rarely replenished. The drinks are tepid and we found out on the last day that you can ask for a hot coffee from the bar, if only we had known that the first day. Its not on par with any other Hotel I have stayed at in the area.

I visited this hotel on a business trip to Monaco and would not recommend it. It is barely one step up from a youth hostel and is most definitely not 3 star. My disappointments included wine served from a box (in France, the home of wine!), a terrible buffet breakfast with jugs of tepid water insufficiently warm to brew tea, jugs of instant coffee and raw eggs with luke warm water to boil them in! The twin beds were so close together that you are forced to read the same book and the so called hairdryer fixed to the wall in the bathroom was the worst I have ever seen - you would be better blowing your own hair dry! All in all it was not a good experience.

We were quite impressed by is hotel. Got what we expected. The bed was a bit uncomfortable, however we had a nice stay. Good breakfast, very nice view from the roof. Quite close to the main train station when walking

Stayed here for 4 nights as a base for exploring Monaco. Brilliant location as everything is within walking distance. We explored the entire principality on foot. Yes, the hotel is at the top of a hill but using the train station as a cut through, you can go all the way from the port to the hotel via elevators and then a short walk up the road that the hotel is on and you're there. It is more than manageable.

The room was great. Two single beds pushed together but this isn't uncommon in Europe. Air conditioning worked great. There was also a mini bar fridge in the room which we used to chill our own drinks that we bought from the supermarket. Spare blankets and pillows if you need them. Large bathroom. We only had a handheld shower but it was over a large corner bath so this really didn't bother us at all.

Breakfast was the usual European continental style buffet - boiled eggs, meat, cheese, bread, pastries, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, coffee, fruit juice, etc. However, every morning that we had breakfast we had to ask for plates or spoons or more milk, etc. as they let things run out and don't replace them straight away as they don't keep a close enough check on it but apart from that it was good.

The panoramic terrace on the roof provides views out over Monaco. It's a must-see.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay here again when visiting Monaco.
