“Good stop over Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

I stopped at this hotel for 2 days on my way to See Monaco GP. Hotel was little difficult to find as its set back from the main road and the sign is not clearly visible.

Hotel is dated paintwork is falling off the front and rooms are very dated, although that does add to the character of the place. I had a sea facing room which had beautiful view.

Hotel is very echoey especially with wooden floors everywhere we could hear next door listeninhg to their music.

Bar areas is very small and TV screen was not working omn the day we were there and also Bar was not manned as the staff were hopping between bar and restaurant.

Breakfast is basic but good and comes with croissant, fresh fruits, tea coffee, scarabled eggs and bacon.

Taxi ride to train station cost me 11 Euro and Tacxi to Monaco was 120 Euro.

Front desk staff were good and helpful and spoke very good english. Wifi is only available in Lobby

Room Tip: Ask for Suite and it comes with Balcony and great views

Needed an overnight stop and this filled the bill.
Has seen better days but the staff were friendly, floors squeaky but overall good value.
Don't expect too much but with breakfast included, it was a great deal.
Within walking distance of old town but the hotel,itself is a bit difficult to find. Signage could be clearer.

A grand hotel in the french riviera style that looks great from the outside but it is stuck in a time warp and has seen much much better days. . "Air conditioning" is provided by a tubular tower fan , the room looks tired and in need of refurbishing . Crusty and flaking walls, sloppily painted. Old wooden wardrobe that would would be at home in my local charity shop ( four hangers are provided for two people).

However it was clean, there is parking if you get there early enough, and it is close to the sea and set away from traffic.

Breakfast is passable but remember to ask the waiter for your cappuccino if you want one otherwise you'll be stuck with the warm brown liquid that is dispensed at the buffet table.

Worth a thought because of its location or if you are into shabby chic

Room Tip: Rooms to the north side are cooler in the summer and are quieter.

No: the room was very small and very old. The breakfast very poor for a 4 stars hotel and the "maitre" screamed against the waiters in front of the customers.
Yes: the boss, a beautiful lady, was very kind and sympathetic. She knows that the hotel needs an hard refurbishment.
For me is NO MORE without a big change.

I can understand the mixed reviews. If you want all mod cons it's not for you. If you want to step back in time it's an ancient gem. Solid wooden furniture and floors, it's old fashioned but impeccably clean. Service is from a classic age of good manners and style. Barman is first class.
Reasonable breakfast and good location opposite the beach and 10 minutes stroll from the town and port

This old hotel was truly a grand old hotel. It's still well-cared for and has a gorgeous view of the sea from the window. Bed was a little hard. Good elevators, excellent breakfast. Ample free parking. Good wifi. Overall we were very pleased with our stay.
