Hotel Le Versailles
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in La Condamine
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Basics first: no matters or pillow protectors: perhaps bring your own unless you enjoy stewing in other people's juices. Also the door didn't close, at least not easily. I returner one evening to find it open. FFS! I asked front of desk to close it for me after attempting several times. The reply: "So it will reassure you for me to go close your door". It would indeed.
The decor is tired and old (excusable) but the paint on the wall is gross, stained with splatters, hand prints, etc. I can only imagine the bed cover harbours similar secrets. Even the light switches are dirty. Furniture doesn't match (not really a big deal), but the already tiny room is lumbered with a dirty small fridge (presumably for beer swiggers during the Grand Prix), leaving little to no room for manoeuvring. The bathroom was relatively clean (except for the mould in a crevice of the shower by the wall), but the mirror was oxidised etc. It appears like little effort is generally made in the rooms. The breakfast is forgettable.

Room Tip: Try airb'n'b.

Had to be near the port for a week and ended up staying here given there are only limited choices of hotels in this area. The location is great - 5 mins walk to the port, easily accessible to the train station (there is an exit at the back of the hotel) and direct bus to Nice airport (just across the street), walking distance to the palace and several tourist sites. There are supermarket, bars and restaurants just across the street which makes it quite convenient.

On the down side, the room itself is rather small and old. It's okay if you expect something close to the standard of private rooms at a hostel, or super basic hotels. With the price most people would expect more - but I guess in Monaco you are expected to overpay for what you get.

Wifi works pretty well. I was told hot water takes 10 mins to come but in fact during my stay I didn't have to wait for such a long time at all. Shower room is small but shower itself was decent. It's by a main road so during the day it can be rather noisy if you are facing the street. Ask for a room facing the inner lane if you are a light sleeper.

On an overnight to Monte Carlo and sadly ended up here! Clearly very dated the decor carpets elevator etc something left over from the 1960's even the shower we were told to run the tap for at least 10 minutes before using it.
The only plus is the location is minutes from the port and all that fabulous Monte Carlo has to offer but if its style and comfort you want from a hotel this place is best avoided.

First I have to say I didn't pick up the bill for my stay so can't comment on the value.

Very handy for the port but the downside is the traffic noise. Rooms very small and you need to be slim to get in the shower cubicle. I was at the end of the corridor which may account for the need to run the hot tap for at least five minutes to get anything resembling warm water. Towels were clean but threadbare. Lighting in the corridor was on a sensor on a very short timer and sometimes didn't come on at all.

On the plus side the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Good wifi in the room. Breakfast was very basic but passable.

I cannot fault this place. I paid €70 a night, the bed was clean, as too the bathroom and was of an ok size. The location was great and I walked everywhere. I did find Monaco a little pricey so to find a nice cheap bed was good. I didn't spend much time in the hotel as I was out and about everywhere. but hey thats why you go to Monte Carlo... Right???

Happy to recommend and most important would stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the weekend as I was doing the Monaco 70.3 Ironman Triathlon.

The hotel is fairly small, as was our room. The bedroom was only a little bigger than the double bed, but enough room for our bags (and I had a big one with a bike in) and there was a desk and a couple of small built in wardrobes. We hadn't been to Monaco before so we weren't going to spend too much time in the room as we would be out exploring.

Our room faced onto the street - Rue Prince Pierre - and was on the first floor. The ground floor is a small reception and a medium-sized Italian Restaurant. We didn't eat there but it looked ok.

We did not suffer from any noise from downstairs, but we did suffer light ingress - our room was next to a very bright street lamp and the curtains were relatively thin. We pulled the curtains so as to double them over as much as possible and pinned them so as to shut out as much light as possible - lined curtains would have improved the room a lot.

There was what appeared to be a newish air conditioning unit on the wall which worked well and a thin TV which had about 5/6 channels. The bathroom was reasonably good - clean if in need of a bit of a cosmetic spruce-up. There was a shower over the bath, but with a full solid shower enclosure, it felt almost like a stand-alone shower rather than the usual half-hearted attempt to provide a shower in a room with only the space for an existing bath.

All the staff at check-in and check-out were very pleasant. I cannot really fault this hotel at the price other than for the thin curtains in a room that would obviously always suffer from night light.

The hotel is well within walking distance of Monaco train station (which we did not use) and the port and the reasonably priced restaurants etc of la Condamine and once you get your bearings it is not that far from the bright lights of Casino Square in Monte Carlo.

The hotel is positioned as to be within sight of the Police Officer that is always stationed at the nearby road junction, preventing non-Monaco-registered cars into the old-town area of Monaco-ville. That, combined with the road outside being fairly busy and the fact that everywhere in Monaco is really safe, reassured me that we would not be victims of any thief who otherwise may have considered scrambling up the side of the hotel and through our window.

If you have the money and you want luxury and quality time in your hotel then do not stay here - there are plenty of 4 star hotels in the flashier parts of town that will take your money. If you just need somewhere reasonably central to rest your head then this place is ideal.
