I stayed at the Riva Hotel, on recommendation, whilst visiting friends & I wasn't disappointed. This "boutique" hotel is situated on the coast line & in a great location for crossing the Italian border & visiting the extravagant Monte Carlo. It's recently refurbished & as such the communal areas are very modern & inviting. The rooms are spacious & great value for money, I suggest booking a room via booking.com for the best rates. Staff were friendly & my overall experience was fantastic. I have no hesitation recommending this hotel. Research Menton before arrival. The old town is worth a visit & there are many good food & drink places to choose from. Travel to Monte Carlo by bus or train for minimal cost & under 15 minutes. Happy travels!
