Really loved this hotel plus the beautiful garden and will definitely be returning. The staff were friendly and helpful with information on local transport and sights. The hotel is clean and well organised. Our room, a front facing, was fairly small but well decorated and had a decent sized bathroom with full bath. Traffic noise could be heard and i would recommend paying the extra for a garden facing room.
The weather was warm and we loved breakfast in the garden and sitting out later in the day in the comfy chairs, sunbeds or gazebo. Breakfast was ample- fresh breads, eggs, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, drinks etc. We had it included in our price or you can pay 15 euros at the hotel.
The location is a 5 minute walk from the promenade and a further 5 minutes to an area called Cours Saleya, full of restaurants and bars. We used the 98 bus from the airport to Rue de Congres on the Promenade de Anglais but the 99 bus back, a quicker journey, from the nearby train station. Cost was 3 euros pp each way.
Monaco is definitely worth a look but take plenty of cash if you want to eat and drink in the tourist areas. We paid 11 euros for a cocktail and 6 euros for a beer in a bar overlooking the harbour; so not too pricey and the setting was perfect. Getting to Monaco took 20 minutes by train - 3.50 euros each way or an hour by bus which is just 1 euro. We used the train and found the station easy to find from the hotel, just a 5 minute walk away.
Hopefully be returning in the near future as the hotel is a real gem. Having use of the garden made our holiday even more enjoyable.
