“Not impessed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We stayed there with a group from a river cruise. Our room was not ready at 3 pm and was smokey and damp when we finally got it. They charge for everything from Internet to charges to bring a water bottle in.
Did love the location and the pool with the fantastic view on the top. Looks nice and the porters were very helpful.

This a tradicional and well located hotel on Monte Carlo, Minaco. It is exactly in front of the Formula one 180º curve. As many of all hotels in that city, it is expensive and very luxury one. However, there is no free WiFi anless you become a member of a hotel club, which is very complicated process To cover in the check in. The hotel is 3 flor building and too many apartments, which means that you can stay almost 1 kilometer from the front desk. Great japonese restaurant and nice cassino.

I remember the Fairmont when it used to be Loews and Grand Hotel. It is definitely one of the best places to stay as it combines a great location with very nice facilities. During Grand Prix weekend it offers great views of the F1 race and the whole atmosphere of the hotel is quite magical. The casino on the lobby is very nice and Nobu is among my favorite places to dine. Overall this is a very good choice and I look forward to coming back !

My boyfriend surprised me with a stay here in a king suite overlooking the ocean. What a view! Balcony in every room juts out over the ocean (or the famous bend on the other side of the hotel). Service here from all the staff was perfect. Some shopping and the Nobu are within the hotel and its within walking distance of everything you want to do in Monte Carlo. We will be back!

Bathroom too small, not many seats enough for waiting guests in front desk, necessary more plugs in the room to recharge batteries, one more telephone booth in the room, more space around the table in the room

Spent a weekend there after a business meeting.
Room:
1 floor, full sea view, nice and large.
Bathroom: God equipped, but no exhaust fan?
Bed: The madras to soft and I felt as it was worn out (most likely not the case). Didn't sleep well at all.
Furniture: Little old fashioned
Noise: Not sure where it came from, but one night it was terrible - I think it was from the conf. room upstairs

Food:
Breakfast: Nice but nothing special. I would have expected more to this price.
Other meals: Too price for me so I stayed away

Service:
Very friendly - especially the Italian girl serving breakfast, she was always smiling and could remember what we had got already from the second day!

Room Tip: Check the noise level!
