We stayed in this beautiful hotel for 3 nights, we had a balcony room overlooking the ocean. It was just a short walk to have a swim, which we did often of course. The rooms have been updated and are clean and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful. It is just a short bus ride to Monaco,... More

Recently spent 3 nights in this wonderful Hotel situated on the waterfront. Rooms were very clean. Reception and Breakfast staff very friendly and helpful. We had a room with balcony overlooking the sea. Great swimming directly across the road. Only a short 10 minute bus ride from Monarco and Hotel prices are nearly half the price in Menton compared to... More

Great views and friendly service. Room small but clean, modern and comfortable. Hotel is located literally 10metres from the border of Roquebrune Saint Martin so a good 15 mins walk to Menton old town. Restaurant is good value but do check that booking made at reception does make its way to the restaurant. Great for motorbikes as a small private... More

Having booked a superior double room we were pretty confident we would have a comfortable room but very shocked on arrival to be shown to an extremely small dark room. More like a single room with a double bed in it! However after complaining we were offered another room but at a higher price. We had to spend one night... More

Really love this place. Been back for many years, and always equally impressed by the location and view. Go for a sea view room with balcony. A bit expensive, but worth every euro. Its the perfect hotel to stay at if you wanna explore the French Riviera.

The Prince de Galles is a clean and modern renovated hotel at the seafront of Menton. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. I had a room in the 4th floor with a wonderful sea view. Despite being close to the seafront road the noise level was ok. Breakfast was good in relation to what you get elsewhere in... More

The hotel is on the very edge of Menton a gentle 25 minute stroll along the promenade from the town itself. The airport express bus 110 stops almost outside in both directions (the stop's name is Viking) and costs 33 euros return. Ticket vouchers can be bought online in advance but there is a ticket office at Nice airport and... More

Nice location (on the promenade, but not with beach area) and walking distance to restaurants & casino area (aprox 10mim walk). Close to Monaco as well (if traveling by car). We had a sea view room which was quite ok. Still, the room was very small and having the 2ys old with stroller with us (plus the additional luggage) made... More
