“Budget Monte Carlo”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Arrived at Nice airport for a brief two day stay.
Hotel Forum was recommended for being well situated and literally on the Mont Carlo border.
This being the height of the holiday season this was reasonable for MC at this time of year.
The staff were friendly, spoke English and showed me to a very well equipped room. Very clean, lovely bathrooms, aircon, looks to be very recently renovated. The hotel's photos are fine.
Supper was in the Italian restaurant again reasonable and breakfast the following morning had a great selection. As others have said - well situated next to station access and buses.
Remember MC is very steep hence the parallel streets, each on a different level.
If you are walking steps take you from one level to the next as do the elevators. See plan attached showing elevators. Buses cost 2 euros and save a lot of perspiration in humid August.
Routes see pix.

We stayed at this hotel because of it's proximity to Monaco.

Pros:
*Close to many attractions in Monaco (15 minute walk to the Casino and beach; 10 minute walk to the Jardin Exotique and Caves)
*Close to Gare du Monaco (5 minute uphill walk to the hotel)
*Breakfast included
*Front desk staff were friendly except for the gentleman who checked us in
*Rooms were a good size, clean and offered a fridge
*Bathrooms were spacious
*TV

Cons:
*Steep climb to the hotel from the train station, especially when walking with luggage
*Lift/Elevator was out of service. So had to climb 3 flights of stairs with luggage
*Slow wifi service
*Walls were thin so you could hear those in the hallway/ doors closing
*No real shower. A hose was provided in the bathtub
*France hotels do not offer irons. So pack neatly.
*No wash cloth. Towels and hand towels only.

Entire Monaco is walkable from this hotel.

The good: rooms are OK, bathrooms are spacious and quite modern, the terrace is a bonus, breakfast is good, it's not too far down into the city by convenient lift, not far from train station, small supermarket close by for water etc.

The bad: the guy on reception was nice, the lady that cleaned the room was very nice. Unfortunately the rest of the staff couldn't manage eye contact, never mind a conversation, in any language, and the breakfast lady was plain RUDE unless you were a local.

It may be only 100m from the station, but it's all uphill!
Compact rooms, with view from roof (5th floor).
Exotic seafood presentation on menu known to the locals.
Good location and value. Lovely service by caring staff.
Recommended for stopovers.

Room Tip: Book early, only 30 odd rooms.

We stayed here whilst attending the Grand Prix Historique. This is a great place to base yourself for both exploring Monaco and easy access to everywhere. Just up the hill from the train station and bus stop, near to the lifts, great to walk. No where is far away. The room we had was clean, comfy beds, great pillows - everything you need for a relaxing stay. Breakfast is simple and good quality especially the brown bread! The lunch and dinner menus looked excellent value and good quality although we did not eat here we did notice the restaurant packed full at lunch time. The staff were helpful and attentive - what more do you need?

I stayed here while working nearby and it happened to be the weekend of The Monaco Grand Prix Historique. It is a 10 minute walk away from the track. (Including Lifts as it is so steep)
Irene,the lady on reception was amazingly helpful. She could not do enough to assist me. I thank her whole heartily. My room was clean and bright and everything worked as it should. The hotel has a lift. The rooftop area was lovely with beautiful views. Perfect for unwinding with a glass of something nice. The restaurant is Italian based with Pizza and Pasta dishes which I found to be very nice. Breakfast is a help yourself with cheese and ham, boiled eggs, cereals etc and the all important coffee. (No toaster0 This hotel was one of the cheaper I could find and well worth the money. I would say the only thing missing is tea/coffee making facilities in the room, other than that, ideal. I would most certainly stay here again.

We stayed at the Hotel Forum for three nights in April 2014. It was very clean and our room had a view over the roof tops of Monaco to the sea. The seaside is quieter than the road (hill) side.
The Hotel offer middle level accommodation and is very well located. You can walk everywhere. The staff speak multiple languages and were very helpful booking us a taxi. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. If you are seeking something affordable with very comfortable beds this is a good choice. Great roof top terrace.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the top looking over the sea.
