The hotel is only 5 mins from the helipad, a lovely walk around a marina and then 10 more minutes to the main Monaco harbour. It is simply an excellent location to be quiet, near to lovely restaurants and such a charming walk by the millionaires yachts.
The rooms are lovely, not perfect but perfectly in keeping with the price and style of hotel. The bed was very comfortable and enormous, the balcony overlooked the Princess Grace gardens (currently being refurbished but there was little noise and it will be excellent when finished), the bathroom had a great shower and was absolutely fine.
The drinks are expensive, 15 euros for a gin! but the bar is a nice place to sit, not at all busy when we were there.
Breakfast was continental or scrambled eggs and fried mushrooms. The bread was very fresh and of high quality, so was the fruit juices. No watered down stuff here.
The concierge, Patrick, was excellent, he booked restaurants for us and was generally very helpful and professional.
We had an outstanding holiday here for 4 days, I cannot recommend it enough. Just save enough money to really enjoy it as it really is a trip of a lifetime.
Have a great time, we had the time of our lives.
