The Port Palace is the place to stay in Monte Carlo, if you’re budget conscious like me. I think it’s definitely the best value in Monaco, if there is such a thing there…and relatively speaking of course.
I mean you can definitely go spend around your thousand euros for one of the casino square hotels or the Hermitage and so on and so on….(there’s never a lack of ways to spend your money in Monaco, that’s for sure)…but seriously, that is totally unnecessary unless you need to lavish/impress a date with that sort of thing, or have so much money you get drop the few thousand euros without a second thought (but I guess you wouldn’t be on tripadvisor then and not be reading this review!)
Anyway, all that is totally unnecessary because Port Palace is relatively affordable and, because Monte Carlo is so small, you’re a 5 to 8 minute walk to casino square (up a little bit of a slope). Port Palace is on the harbor, and any rooms higher than 3rd floor, you have a lovely view of all the yachts. The rooms are nice and big, bathrooms had a Jacuzzi and a separate shower, and everything was nicely appointed.
All in all, the stay at Port Palace was great!
Tips For Cheapskates:
The best thing for a frugal dude like me was: there’s a supermarket (a chain called Supermarche Casino) only about 5 minutes walking so you can get groceries, bottled water and soda for way cheaper than elsewhere. It is located along the harbor on the street/boulevard Albert 1er. From the hotel, you walk in the direction away from the casino square, and make a left on Albert 1er, and after a few blocks you’ll see it on the corner.
