Beausoleil borders Monte Carlo- it's so close you don't know when you cross over into Monaco. Once you get your bearings, you'll find it easy to get around, and by staying here you can save a bundle.The Hotel Olympia is right on the border- a ten minutes' walk from the Casino and the Hotel de Paris.
The Olympia's staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are on the small side, but clean and well maintained. The bathrooms are clean but spartan, and I do not like the wall-mounted liquid soap dispensers at the sink and shower: I've had better amenities in lower classed hotels. The breakfast is decent, offering cereals, brioches, yoghurt, sliced ham and packaged cheese, and a pieces of fresh fruit. They'll make you a cappuccino, but it's nothing to write home about.
They have a few parking spaces, and there is a secure underground municipal car park right next door.
I needed a room for one night a few days before the Grand Prix. With no reservation, I got the only room available at the Olympia, and only due to a late cancellation. As it was last minute (around 8 in the evening) they also agreed to negotiate the rate, which made the room very expensive, but not eye-watteringly high like everywhere else in the region during Formula1 week. The rest of the year, the Olympia looks like a well-priced, comfortable base for enjoying Monaco.
