We stayed here for 3 nights and could not fault the staff. Great location. Breakfast good. Drinks in hotel expensive. Would definitelyreturn.

We had a great time here. The hotel was clean, friendly, with a great breakfast lounge. Loved the pool and surrounding park to walk in. No complaints for us.

We visited at the end of February-a three night break for me and my husband. The hotel in our opinion was perfect, situated in a lovely area -away from the built up area but close enough to have a very pleasant walk both to the palace and into Monte Carlo. The bus service is really good and frequent but we always walked as the weather was warm and sunny and the surroundings so nice. The staff in the hotel were very pleasant and efficient and the concierge was very helpful. Also we must mention that the atmosphere was comfortable and very relaxing and not at all intimidating. We would definitely return to the Columbus if we visited Monaco again. A real plus for us also was the helicopter transfers-brilliant-and so well organised!

We visited the Columbus hotel as a couple, and found it a great choice for Monaco. We had a lovely large room overlooking the Princess Grace gardens, and up to the mountains. The pool area was lovely and quiet, interrupted only by the helicopters taking off, which didn't bother us at all. A great bar, friendly staff, and a lovely part of Monaco.
There is a supermarket less than five mins away, and it takes only 10 mins ish to be in the port, but the buses here are excellent and really cheap, so it is so easy to get about. We used the bus to get to the Palace which is beautiful, with lots of lovely restaurants to eat in. We also used the bus to get to to the beach at Monte Carlo, and of course the Casino and Cafe de Paris, and Hagen Dazz parlour, all of which are a must.
A great base in an amazing place, we have been visiting Monaco for years, it is a truly fabulous place.

very comfortable hotel within easy walking distance of main attractions, but with free hotel transport and efficient local bus service, even if you don't want to walk , getting arround is easy.So it's not on casino square, but that is reflected in the very reasonable room tarrif.The staff are very helpful and the room was clean and of reasonable size.Would recommend king sized bed on high floor.The breakfast included in the tarriff and was good, similar to most 4 star London hotels.My wife and I have stayed in numerous hotels arrond the world and in most cases you get what you pay for, in the case of this hotel it represented good value.

Room Tip: High floor, king bed,

I booked the hotel for the New Year, there was not many options, but with the price and stars (plus the old photoshoped photos) I expected better! But what I did NOT expect was to book a hotel and a non smoking room that smells like (heavily) cigarette!

They did put a strong spray, which did not make it better! Plus the bathroom tiles were mold dirty (black), which shows bad caring!
However concierge was really good and the location is close to a great restaurant! (Beef Bar), the Prince Car Museum and Port Hercule (all the other the car takes you).
I would NOT recommend anyone staying there! (left even with an allergy due to the room maintenance)

Room Tip: No room. Avoid this hotel, badly kept rooms.

Dear Guest, We are sorry to hear about your bad experience in our hotel. It is difficult to avoid some careless guests to smoke inside the room and not outside on the terrace and we apologize for the inconvenience. We have forwarded your comments onto the General Housekeeper for a thorough check up of the bathrooms. Although a continued maintenance is done, it is our duty to check that it is correctly carried out. Best regards. C. Drollet

Visited the Columbus in June 2011 for a week long trip for my best friends 21st. There were 3 adults and 2 kids so we had two rooms - one for my friend and I and one for her mum and the two kids. We had a junior suite facing the sea and the heliport and her mum had a room down the hall facing the rose garden. Upon checking in the staff were amazing. They took all our bags, checked us in very quickly and gave us lots of information about the place. My friend and I loved our room, we could see yachts coming in to dock and we'd heard bad things about the noisy heliport but even though we were right next to it and could even watch the helicopters land it wasn't noisy and caused us no problems. Our balcony was perfect for having a glass of champagne in the evening and watching the boats go by. We shared a double bed which was very comfortable and the view in the other room was beautiful too. The bathroom was very nice with free toiletries provided and two big soft, fluffy white robes to use. Perfect. The hotel is in a great location. We used the buses and trains a lot however a couple of times the concierge gave us a lift into town for a reasonable tip and they are so friendly, teaching my friend and I some French phrases and advising us the best places to go to party! The supermarket is 5 minutes away, perfect for stocking up on champagne however we did drink in the hotel bar a fair bit. Pascal who works in the bar is the best thing about the place. He knew his drinks well and was hilarious, informative and made us feel right at home. We had breakfast every morning, dinner once or twice and both were very good. We called room service for lunch one day - the hotel do a great croque monsieur and fries. The pool was clean and very nice. The staff went all out to make sure we had a great time, especially Pascal and the concierge guys! Will definitely return in the future!
