Hotel Olympia
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Beausoleil
Reviewed 24 May 2013

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.

Just a few steps from Mt. Carlo, this hotel has very good location. However, if your sense of orientation is as bad as mine, I strongly reccomend taking a map with you before going for a stroll. I got lost on my way from the beach and found it difficult to get directions from locals, not all of them speak English.

Stayed at this hotel, with a group of friends for a short break. The hotel staff were very friendly and helped us out with pointing us in the direction of a few places on the maps. The hotel was basic but clean and did the job. The bathrooms were spacious.

The hotel is about a 5-10min walk to casino sq and 15-20 min walk to the port.

I personal thought a good hotel on budget if you don't mind walking a little way.

Hotel Olympia is another very good “on budget” hotel only a few minutes walk from the centre of Monte Carlo.

Clean and comfy rooms, nothing special but nothing to moan about either.

Excellent and very helpful staff.

I didn’t try the breakfast so can not comment on that.

Great value for money. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Double-rooms are far more spacious than the single ones.

If attanding a conference at the Grimaldi Forum this is an ideal place to stay on a budget, very helpful staff, in particularly Maria on reception, pleasant very quiet air conditioned rooms. Breakfast is a bit basic so I would suggest going down the hill to a cafe. The hotel is about 5 levels up from the seafront and it si accessed up the lifts and escalators that rise up the hillside, it is actually in France just. I would also reccommend that for an evening meal you go up the hill a couple of roads and there are plenty of good basic restaurants and almost next door there is a great indoor market.

Room Tip: perhaps pay a little more and ask for one of the front corner rooms

We stayed at this hotel for just 1 night. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff (appeared to be family run). The rooms we had were just fantastic being the bay window rooms at the front of the hotel, so a bit more space that usual.

The only downside to this hotel - and I hasten to add it's not the hotels fault - is the fact that in order to gat a taxi into Monaco is next to impossible unless you walk 50 metres down the road, into Monaco. Something about the Monaco cab drivers not wanting to go into France, and this hotel is JUST inside the border.

I would return to this hotel.

Lovely little spot. Easy walk to Monaco. Lovely family run business. Room was fine, the bathroom was gorgeous. Helpful owners. Nice place for pain au chocolat & decent coffee just down the street. Supermarket, markets, bars etc all close by and not as expensive as down towards the water.
