My partner and I stayed at the Columbus for Easter weekend. We decided to treat ourselves to the helicopter transfer and what a 7 minutes! I would definitely travel like this all the time if my pockets would allow. All I can say is yes, it’s an unnecessary waste of money but boy it was fun! The hotel was literally round the corner from the helicopter pad but the price includes a chauffeur transfer to your hotel anyway. We had a swift check in at the Columbus. The room was very spacious with an additional sofa, small table and two chairs, flat screen TV etc. Bathroom was OK but very disappointed to find the sink had a massive crack in it! Not what you expect at all in this sort of hotel class. The hotel bar was very atmospheric and the cocktails were lovely, if somewhat pricey! Didn’t eat dinner at the hotel but breakfast was good and as expected. All in all, the hotel is very good value for money but it is looking a little worn around the edges, especially in the corridor and lift areas. Best part of the hotel is the concierge, Patrick Trebbiani O’Curti. We were travelling on to Nice for a few days and he gave is some excellent recommendations. We went to both ( La Reserve de Nice and Les Brasseries Georges) and both served fantastic food that I know we wouldn’t have found on our own. Thank you Patrick!
