The good: fantastic location, convenient, easy to find (if you use the right exit from the station) and you can reach everything in Monaco in a 10 minute walk.
The bad: The price. Are you serious? €200 a night, room only, for a NOVOTEL? This is extraordinary effrontery and as flagrant an example of traveller exploitation as I have seen. While it's true that the majority of finance departments would be unlikely to sign off an invoice from the Hermitage and one must view the cost within the context of a very expensive destination, if you're looking for value for money, this is, most definitely, not it.
The bad, v2: In the name of all that is holy, do not order room service here. EVER. Returning from work events late at night, I made the catastrophic mistake of ordering a club sandwich, which is quite possibly the least pleasant thing I have ever eaten. And I've had a pasty at the top of the Rock of Gibraltar. For €15, an accompanying crescent of supermarket crisps is really not that much to ask. And €19 for a very ordinary breakfast doesn't do much to redeem the situation.
In summary, if you go there and the budget understandably doesn't stretch to a Loews hairpin view at the Fairmont, this is a reasonable compromise. Just don't go there hungry.
