This isn't a 5-star hotel, so it doesn't have a swimming pool, valet service etc. however it does offer a great location (a few metres from the bus stop and just around the corner from the train station, plus it's within walking distance of the old town), clean rooms and value in what is an expensive location.
We stayed here for an extra night after moving out of the apartment that we had rented for the week during the grand prix. The front desk were very helpful and arranged taxis for us even on the days before we checked in.
We ate at the Italian restaurant downstairs (P&P) a couple of times before we realised that it was actually part of the hotel and can thoroughly recommend it. Breakfast, which is included in the rate, is taken in the same restaurant and is a continental buffet style with plenty of choice (cereal, bread, pastries, eggs, cold cuts, cheese, jam etc.).
The room itself was small (in keeping with this part of the world) and the twin beds were pushed next to each other (we had booked a twin, not a double). It had a juliet balcony and whilst it overlooked the main street, we were not disturbed by the outside world. The air-conditioning was quiet and free wi-fi was also available in the room.
The bits that we didn't like could be fixed quite easily. The only bin was in the bathroom, as was the only mirror (not full-length either), which is not ideal when you're sharing. The worst problem was that it was impossible to take a shower without completely flooding the bathroom. The over-bath shower was fixed far too close to the bath (so you had to hold it over your head) and there was no shower curtain/screen, so the water immediately went everywhere no matter how careful you were, creating both a mess and a real slip hazard. Reluctantly, we used the towels to try to soak up some of the water but it didn't help much. I hope that the management takes note of these issues, as we would stay here again next time we're in Monaco.
