“Comfortable and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I led a group of 28 tourists to this hotel, not one complaint and many comments of approval. How rare is tat among tour groups! The staff are friendly and obliging, the rooms bright and comfortable, the showers hot and well designed and the location, looking back on old Menton is great. The only down-side is that traffic noise can be intrusive for front rooms especially confounded motor bikes pulling away from the traffic lights! Close the doors and things are OK.
We would happily return and highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Front rooms have great coastal views but a little more traffic noise.

We visited the four-star Hotel Napoleon for the second time last month (April 2014). It is truly a special hotel. We felt that in every way they cared about the guest and doing little things to make the stay comfortable. The rooms are spacious with free cokes, water and orange juice in the mini bar every day. The bathrooms and toiletries are perfect. Having been to London immediately prior to this trip it was a welcome change to have a nice room. We had a sea view room with a large balcony, table and chairs and it was really nice to sit out there overlooking the Mediterranean and great views of the coast and the beautiful town. The staff are very helpful, especially the ladies at the front desk. Tiziana is a jewel and goes out of her way to make your stay pleasant. She is a great resource for info on good restaurants and places to visit. The hotel is well situated and it is an enjoyable walk to the town and restaurants. The hotel has a nice pool and a bar. I hope we'll have the opportunity to visit again. It was such a wonderful place to relax after a busy business trip to London.

Room Tip: It is worth paying extra for a sea view room

A very good hotel situated on the BEST side of Menton, which means with view to the famous facades of the old town instead of watching it from the back. Only 5 minutes to walk to the old town and several good restaurants at the foot of the hill there. Nicely renovated room , modern bathroom, spacous balcony with the most beautiful view to the sea and the old town. Excellent breakfast buffet with very good bread, cheeses, figue jam, fresh fruit juices etc. We missed some drawers for clothes, there were only hangers, nothing else.

Room Tip: You must choose a room vith a view towards the sea and the old town, and preferably high up.

ROOM
Modern, spacious, immaculately clean with a great bathroom and balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Free minbar and huge bed as well. Little nice touches like tons of charging points at the desk for your devices and chocolates.

BREAKFAST
Great selection of nice quality food served with a garden view but the lovely staff who seem to speak every language.

STAFF
VERY VERY Fast, polite, friendly and helpful. Not much more you can ask for really. Everyone we dealt made us feel welcome and looked after.

BAR
Attentive staff but relaxed service in the lobby bar. Rather good light meals and specialty cocktails served in style. And a good value.

SUMMARY
We loved Menton and our our next visit in the summer season we shall be booking here again. This hotel is a gem in every way!

Room Tip: Choose Seaview on an upper floor. It's worth the price.

The hotel welcome drink is the famous Lemon juice which is quite refresh us. We drove about 10 minutes from Monaco along the seaside and enjoy seaview all the way to the hotel. It's around 10minutes walk to the old town which can see from balcony directly. The seaview room is quite nice and comfortable. You will feel relax when stay here.

Many thanks for the great review - I am delighted you enjoyed you stay with us!

For all reviewers of our hotel, please also accept my thanks and that of all the team at the Napoleon for your comments and for your custom. I don't systematically thank people for good reviews: I find it becomes repetitive to have gleeful management responses to every nice comment, without adding to the information that people are looking for when choosing a hotel on this site - but be aware that we really do appreciate the time and effort you give to post these reviews!

Just returned from a three day break at this beautiful hotel. We stayed in a room with Sea Views and could not fault it. Rooms were incredibly clean and spacious. The hotel even provided a free mini bar with water and soft drinks and the room had tea/coffee making facilities which was an added bonus. The hotel is within a short stroll to many lovely restaurants and a grocery store is conveniently situated just across the road. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to stay in the wonderful town of Menton.

Room Tip: Sea Views have wonderful views of the old town and are south facing.
