“fantastic view, quite place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I stayed a week in the hotel. Really comfortable beds - for me it's one of the most important thing in any hotel. Fine breakfast. Nice design. The beach is a little bit rocky. The staff's English isn't good, but everybody is very friendly.

We ended our 10 day European trip here and spent 3 nights. First of all, follow the hotel's instructions (that we later read after we unpacked in the room) that if you drive in from the A8, do not take the Roquebrune-Cap Martin exit but go down to the Menton exit. Major fail on our part. Scenic but 45 minutes of windy roads versus a straight shot in 10 minutes from the Menton exit! Hotel faces the beach and has a cute patio in the front of the hotel where you can sit and read/drink/eat. The front of the hotel opens up to the outside (which I thought was a great design). Check-in and check-out (for us, at 4am) was quick and easy and every person we spoke to at the front desk knew English extremely well and everyone was very friendly and helpful. A shout out to Celine who spent the better half of 10 minutes on hold for us with our rent car company trying to help us figure out what to do with our car at the airport. Room was very spacious and well designed. We had a backfacing room so the view wasn't much other than you could see the mountains. Very comfortable bed and the layout of the room was perfect. The bathroom was good sized with the toilet in a different room for itself. The shower was interesting in that the shower door only partially covered the bathtub (probably should be a sliding door set up rather than a swinging door) and that if the shower head was higher than the door, you could turn on the shower, and if the head was facing outward, accidentally spray anyone that was standing at the doorway of the bathroom (which happened to us and I was not the one getting in the shower at that point!). The room was very quiet - I know the hotel was booked to capacity but I never heard anyone in the hallway or next door. The WiFi didn't work on the first day and half at all - which meant their desktop computer didn't either - despite being told it was fixed - and then when we went next door to eat at the restaurant, I was sitting up against the wall attached to the hotel and all of the sudden it connected (don't know if it was fluke or not) but then I never had any problems after that. We did have a rent car and lucked out that most of the time, we got a parking spot on the street right across from the hotel. One night we had to park about 3 blocks away in the residential neighborhood but free was better than paying, which I know the first night, the hotel did have one available spot left. The hotel is in a good location to walk to Menton and several restaurants. Also, it's semi-close (definitely walking distance but about 10 blocks) from the bus that will take you to Monaco or Nice. Side note - We took the bus into Monaco on a Saturday afternoon (the #100/#110) but just beware that we assumed the bus returning toward Menton would pick up in the same spot it dropped us in Monaco but it didn't (we couldn't find it either) so we had to take a cab back to the hotel (note - 40Euro from Monte Carlo Casino to front of hotel). Hotel is an excellent homebase if you want to explore between Monaco and Italy. We backtracked to St. Tropez/Cannes area one day and I was a little surprised how far we drove to backtrack on the A8 (guide books made it sound like it wasn't that far) so only plan to stay in this area (at this hotel for sure!) if you plan to stay around Monaco, Menton, or drive into Italy. Great value for what you get and the view and being that close to the water add value for sure!

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a front facing room if you plan to be in the room a lot but if you don't get...

We stayed in this hotel for the conference in Monaco and then we stayed after for couple of days just to relax on the sun. The hotel is perfect for the money they ask - it's the best. Big rooms, conteprorary design, fantastic view to the see, rich and tasty breakfast, nice staff. Nearby there is good italien restaurant with fantastic tiramisu. Beach is clean, wanter cristal. You can walk to the left from the hotel and see wonderful views to Monaco.
I reccomned this hotel for relaxing holidays with all entertaiment just nearby in Menton

The outside of the hotel is, well, eehh. But the room we had, facing the sea, was just lovely. You just have to cross the street and you are on the beach. The bed was verrrry comfortable, believe me, a big plus travelling in Europe. Plenty of large towels, new updated cozy bathroom and a wonderful showerhead with plenty of water pressure. Sitting on the balcony watching the moon rise over the water was just perfect. We have already made reservations to return to this hotel in June. The staff was quite lovely and helpful. I would absolutely recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We had room 109, sea view, no trees blocking view. Perfect.

We went wow when we were driving to the hotel....we knew it was close to the sea but not that its right across the road....there is nothing in between and the views are amazing. The rooms are very modern and very clean. Staff was always smiling and eager to help. There are lots of eating options near the hotel and Monaco is a 10 minute drive. Absolutely loved our stay and would go back in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Any sea facing room

Though the outside building does not have any particular merit, this small boutique hotel which occupies its first floor is worth each of its stars. Friendly service, nicely airy appointed room with a colourful and modern design, and a balcony with a view to the sea where you can sip the free (soft) drinks from the minibar at your leisure and watch the days flow by. Noise insulation is very good (important as the coastline road in front of the hotel can be quite busy at times during high season), you are a few steps away from the (pebble) beach and just a few more from the gorgeous coastal path (chemin Corbusier) that leads you all the way to Monaco. It is also well located if you wish to visit the area as Menton is easily accessible and so is Monaco if that's you're cup of tea.

Hotel Victoria is a little surprise. It looks dated from the outside, but is quite modern inside. The renovations must have been carried out very recently because everythings looks quite new. The new look is based on creative color play, large photographs and simple, but current furniture. We stayed two nights only, wanting to be as close to Monte Carlo as possible. The proximity is fantastic. The hotel is located right across from the beach, which I didn't find attractive (stoney) to lie on, but the views are spectacular. It is also just a few minutes walk from a bigger city of Menton. One slightly inaccurate thing about the hotel is the information (on booking.com) that it has private parking. Indeed, it does, but only for small cars. Ours didn't fit and we had to park on the street which I had tried to avoid. Another curious feature is only one and rather strange, super slow elevator designed for the disabled. In order for it to work one must push the button non stop.

The hotel rate was very good in comparison with other hotels on the French Riviera. The WiFi was free (slow, though). The breakfast buffet (10 Euro) was pretty good too.

Overall, Hotel Victoria is a very decent place to stay for very reasonable money.
