If you want to stay in Menton, this is a really good place to stay: the price versus the overall Hotel confornt and status is definitely positive. Rooms are just rifurbished and quite new. The "terrace" in front of the sea gives you a great place for a breakfast in the sun. The building is a pleasent old one. At... More

This is a lovely hotel with an unrivalled view of the sea. The staff were very welcoming and friendly as well as maintaining a high standard of professionalism.

Balcony with commanding views over the sea and along the Italian coastline. The lighter (express) breakfasts ) suited our needs perfectly and were always served in a most pleasant and polite manner.

I absolutely recommend this hotel. And i suggest to take a sea-view room, for example 304. Although the hotel is located very far from old city centre, you can get there in 30min by foot. Also the bus 18 can take you there from a stop near the hotel.

The hotel stood out when walking along the sea front, it was very grand, but very modern inside. The room were cosy, but had everything that you needed. A fridge was in the room with complimentary soft drinks. The shower was good and spacious. We had the express breakfast every day for 6€ which consisted of 2 crossiants, orange juice,... More

Stayed for three nights. Good location - on the water (splurge for an ocean view, it's not that much more), 15 minute walk into central Menton and 10 minutes to the train station that'll take you anywhere along the coast. The service was excellent! The front desk staff and bartender in particular were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is... More

Close to Monaco and the Italian border. Room was a bit small, but a great view of the Med and a balcony. An older hotel, but it had everything and a great restaurant. The desk staff was very helpful and multilingual. Price was reasonable especially considering the location.

We stayed 2 nights and took the train from Carnoles station (10 mins walk away and trains every half hour or so 2 stops into Monaco (around 12 mins journey) to explore Monaco).

Stayed in 2013 for one night and was so impressed we are comming back for a week this October. Restaurant is excellent and all staff are very helpful, hotel is in a good location away from the main town but a short stroll away plus you have the sea views. really looking forward to returning this October.
