“Another world...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I stayed at the Hotel de Paris for business. The hotel is ideally situated just next to the Casino. Upon entering the lobby, we are captured by the charm of the place and feel its prestige and its history. The staff is very caring and friendly. Neither recent nor old, luxury transpires from every corner.
My room was very large with a huge and beautiful bathroom with a great view of the port of Monaco. The lounges are spectacular with magnificent ornaments.

My first stay was really divine, I hope I will have another opportunity to stay at the Hotel de Paris.

The best way to enjoy the New Year's arrival, is to stay in here - you don't have to be a gambler though..

This is one of the best hotels to the entire world ( voted 1 of the 500 Best ) and - to my opinion-the best in Europe !
Built in 1864 with the intention of offering the very best that existed at the time, this is a majestic, exceptional luxury hotel with the most beautiful facade and the most celebrated client list, a genuine legend !!
Located in the very heart of Monte Carlo on the famous Casino Square. The privileged quality of its location just a stone's throw from the legendary Casino, means guests have front raw seats to watch the glittering life of Monaco - and of course free endless entries to the Casino with just the key of their room !!
The hotel continues to perpetuate the very same luxury and excellence in the art of hospitality.
Upon the arrival, every guest receives an attentive and a personalised welcome : from the bellmen and porters to the front desk staff, they are all so perfectly trained, helpful and- mainly- discreet.
The hotel's areas and their decoration are just astonishing. A junior suite with a sea-view is the best choice for unforgettable sunsets over the sea. With an extraordinary classy decoration and furniture it offers a spacey elegant atmosphere. The marble bath is luxurious - not to mention the " La prairie " toiletries and products. The room-service excellent and it's absolutely preferable to enjoy your breakfast there. As a guest of the hotel, you have a direct access to the fantastic THERMES MARINS MONTE CARLO, a 6.500 m2 Spa- probably from the very best worldwide- another privilege.
Staying in the hotel, they are 3 must-visit places : the BAR AMERICAINE, the SALLE EMPIRE, and the LE LOUIS XV restaurant by Alain Ducasse. They are all just a must !
The HOTEL DE PARIS is pretty expensive but it is worth every cent you spend in it. It is an absolute treat for yourselves and your beloved. A really unique elegance.

Room Tip: The Junior Suites are the best choice. Ask for a sea-view or a city, Casino-view. Avoid the Courtyar...

Very friendly and efficient service from luggage porters on arrival. Personally escorted to the suite which was huge and beautiful elegantly decorated excellent view of the casino and the sea. Luxury opulent hotel. La prairie beauty products in the bathroom complimentary was great and as its my favourite brand along with la mer i was impressed. Room key also acts as a credit card (pay at checkout) and free entry to casino de monaco unlimited visits. Dress to impress!!!
Lively nightlife and great restaurants. Spa was also very relaxing and a nice way to spend some time with some champagne before getting ready for the evenings festivities.

If in Monte-Carlo for a day visit, or longer, do take the time to visit the Hotel de Paris beside the Casino. Enter through the wonderful lobby area, turn left for the Bar Americaine-drinks for 2 are c. euro 40 but boy is it worthwhile for: the service, the snacks offered, the ambiance, people-watching and jazz in the evening @ 7pm - go on - treat yourself-you're worth it!!

Room Tip: Look pretty respectable!

Arrival

Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly luggage porters and doormen who escorted us to the reception. Attentive staffs and a warm welcome were our first impressions!

Check-in

Check-in was smooth, quick, and efficient. The front desk staffs were efficient in carrying out their tasks. We were personally escorted to our room and luggage followed within 5 minutes. Everything was flawless.

Room

Because of limited availability, we booked a renovated city view room. The room was decorated in cool, warm, and modern tone with Californian twist. (See pics). The room was of generous size (about 50 sq meters) and has a foyer area with walk in closets. The room itself felt quite comfortable and not too "tight" , thanks to the colors and choice of furnishings. Bathroom was big for European standard and the King bed had the kind of mattress that would keep you in bed til noon. La Prairie toiletries and products were offered in the bathroom, which was a plus. One negative thing was the fact that the in room internet (LAN cable and wireless) was quite slow for a five star hotel.

Breakfast & Room Service

Although quite overpriced, room service food was very delicious and meticulously prepared. Staffs were professional and trolley collection was professional and prompt. Breakfast tasted good, nothing outstanding in particular. We opted for the in room breakfast instead of going downstairs.

Check-Out

Check-out was fast, efficient, and flawless. We were soon on our way to the airport. Staffs were friendly and specifically asked for comments and problems that may have occurred during our stay.


Staff

They were all very helpful, nice, professional, and took pride in what they do.

Circle Card

The room key at Hotel de Paris works like a credit card at all major and high end establishments in Monte Carlo. You simply use the room key to charge any costs incur at these places into your guest account, and you pay everything at once when you check out of the hotel. The room key card also allows you unlimited free access at Casino de Monaco, without having to pay the entrance fee.

A quick note

Observing the bellmen, I noticed that they sometimes turn away people that tried to enter the hotel, saying that it's for "hotel guest only". To be honest, I am not sure/don't know exactly what criteria are used to evaluate who's the real guest or who's the pretend-to-be guest. Or maybe they're just extremely talented and were able to remember the faces of all the guests who checked in at the hotel! ^^

Room Tip: If available, be sure to ask the room with a view of the casino or the sea!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the hotel in December, The Hotel is simply stunning. The service and staff overall were excellent. The main bar had nightly live music and a good atmosphere.
Being Leading Hotels of the World members, we were upgraded to a junior suite which was elegantly modern and a good size with an ample sized marbel bathroom.
The spa and pool is worth spending a few hours in relaxing.
Anyone looking for lively nightlife Monte Carlo is the place!
Highly recommend a visit.
