We used this hotel as a base for a one week stay in the area built around the Monaco F1 race. The first restriction this placed was the need for a minimum 7 night stay. The regular rate was applied for the week so no bump in price for the race, just a longer stay period. Maybe I am mistaken but a lot of the other guests seemed to be there far less than a week Given what there is to do along this part of the coast we made it work.
The hotel staff are professional and helpful. During our first night's stay it was obvious that the previous guests had smoke in the room. I asked housekeeping to change the pillows and duvet which was done. They also sprayed air freshener which helped a bit. The carpet in this room was definitely tired and in need of a cleaning. I noticed other rooms with tile floors.
The bathroom was compact for sure but worked fine. Good shower with ample hot water and pressure. Linens and towels were average and a bit on the tired side. TV was good, lots of stations. In room wifi coverage was a bit weak in the room we had. Guests can also access a computer with printer in the lobby.
Breakfast was fine if a bit bland. The usual european selection with hot eggs, sausage and bacon. The baking was good and coffee serving generous. We were able to eat on the enclosed deck area facing the ocean. Serving staff were cheerful and hustled.
Parking takes some effort. About 5 stalls are available in front at no charge. Underground was 10 euro a day. There was on-street and a couple off street pay parking lots nearby. We never had to walk too far. In fact we never moved the car for four of the seven days. You can walk to the train station in 5 to 10 minutes. The train ride to Monaco takes less than 10 minutes and costs 4.20 euro. The local bus stop on the street directly behind the hotel.
You will find many restaurants within a 20 minute walk. The walk is wonderful right along the ocean front. Do your homework on where to eat as they all look pretty much the same from the street.
