The Columbus hotel is in Fontvielle a quiet and mainly residential area of Monte Carlo. This means that apart from Fontvielle harbour any other parts of Monte Carlo are a fair walk away. To compensate for this the hotel runs a shuttle bus which will take you into the centre and the staff which operate this service are some of...

Dear Guest, Thank you for forwarding your detailed and informative review. We would like to add the following information : in the coffee dispenser, the coffee beans are freshly grounded when it is poured down.

I would certainly recommend this place as somewhere to stay in Monaco. Although it is slightly far away from the main tourist areas (about 20 min walk), the hotel is decorated nicely, and we could not fault our rooms: a fully stocked minibar, clean all round, comfy bed, sea view and free products in the bathroom (always a bonus!) The...

The hotel was in the very nice less busy area of port Fontvieille with lots of great restaurants close by. In my opinion the hotel itself lacked atmosphere and had little character and seemed like a business hotel on the plus side it was very clean and had a lovely swimming pool and sun bathing area. Free coffee and cold...

Dear Guest, thank you for sending your review, although we think you that you were a little bit hard with our hotel: usually our visitors do no think Columbus as lacking character and atmosphere. The boutique style of Columbus provides some lovely and peaceful areas to chill out. Nevertheless, we are pleased you enjoyed the location, the pool and the...

My daughter and I have just returned from a four nights stay at the Columbus Hotel. Having travelled to Monaco numerous times in the past, we had always stayed in Monte Carlo, so we were a little nervous about staying away from the center. That said the location was perfect. It is only a short walk to the shops, restaurants...

My husband and I have recently spent 4 nights at the hotel and we were impressed with the overall standard and service offered. The concierge was very friendly and reception staff very welcoming.

Dear Guest, it's a very detailed and lovely description of our hotel and services. Many thanks for taking the time to forward your review. As for the turndown, this service is generally done during what is considered as the "dinner time". Of course, it depends on the number of rooms to be visited, which can be quite high, considering the...

Stayed at the Columbus for two nights early in September. Took the helicopter transfer from Nice airport so we were in the hotel in no time at all.

We always stay here when in Monaco it's a fabulous modern hotel but away for the madness and overinflated price tags of Monte Carlo. The rooms are perfect, terrace great for breakfast and overall the whole place feels inviting and unpretentious. The hotels very close to a lovely beach, itself a rarity in Monte Carlo and also close to the...

The Columbus Hotel is just a shadow of what it used to be ; lost a star, no more bar, a swimming pool that is overcrowded by people not staying at the hotel, overpriced rooms and breakfast, self service drinks in the lobby which you have to pay at the reception ; quite dissapointing for Monaco but a good location...
