The Columbus hotel has a good location ,very closed to the sea and from a lot of turistic points ( Princiar Palace, Naval Museum, Car Musseum an others) . We had an executive room wich was great ,big with a wonderfull view of the roses garden; the pool îs also great very modern and nice.
The staff îs nice and helpful, looking for the best solution for YOU.
For sure i will choose this hotel again..

We have stayed in the hotel for a night. The staff were very approacheable and helpful. It was quite peaceful when we stayed, well apart from the helicopeters flying in and out, probably because there were not much occupants yet. We had the pool and sea view from our room which has given us a very relaxing atmosphere. Cleanliness is very good apart from the carpet which I think needs more of hoovering.
It located in the Fontvieille which gives you very close access to loads of restaurant, the Monaco heliport and marina. The Rose Garden is just in front of the hotel. It is quite far from the centre but I do not mind as I love walking or if not, you can ask the concierge team to get you on their shuttle service.
Before I forget, the team are very good English speakers so no troubles in communicating. Will definitely stay in this hotel again! =)

Despite closing its restaurant and bar this small hotel is still a haven of peace and tranquility. Concierge team is unbelievably helpful and reception are always kind and helpful.
Although hotel showing signs of age and lack of investment by owners bedrooms spotless and beds the most comfortable anywhere!
Lots of lovely restaurants within 5 mins walk and Patrick and his team made quick bookings for us whenever we asked.

Room Tip: High rose garden view less noisy seagulls and looks up to mountains!

Columbus hotel

Inconsistent.
The Columbus has always been one of my my favorite hotels in Monaco, it offers a boutique atmosphere with a personal touch where every staff member provides service with a smile.

Most disappointing though is recent closure of the restaurant and bar - I am baffled how the hotel retains it's star rating without these services but the difference in atmosphere and quality if service is immediately evident.

Food compliments any vacation and the columbus simply lacks and quality in this department which is disappointing as it was a frequent favorite for a night out with friends. Even more surprising is the hotel has placed fast food menus in the rooms and charge a € 5 premium to order from their preferred suppliers. So quality is down, service is non is existent and you have to pay a premium for crap fast food.

Another surprising aspect of the inconsistent services at the Columbus is in the rooms, sometimes the room gets cleaned, sometimes not, sometimes you get turn down service but it's never the same. One aspect I associate with a turn down service is actually turning down the bed - this has been the greatest inconsistency, sometime you receive it, sometimes not.

The Columbus is a real hit and miss at the moment, they are obviously going though changes that directly effect the quality of service.

Try but buyer beware - the rooms are tired the service is strained and the food / restaurants are non existent. I believe the Columbus is hovering in a 2.5* star quality level BUT has the potential of a 4* star.

There is lots of positives like location, value and comfort but I hope through reviews like this it inspires the management to return the Columbus to its former glory.

Dear Guest, we acknowledge receipt of your review and understand your disappointment when you compare with our former services. But the staff is still welcoming and smiling, the location is still very convenient, quiet and residential, the rose garden facing the hotel has been extended and the view from the rooms is stunning, we are close to lots of restaurant and bar on the Fontvieille marina. We do hope to see you back to Columbus. Kind regards. C.

We stayed just one night. The hotel is in a quiet location a bit away from the city centre in a new area that lacks character. Bus 6 makes it easy to get to and from the hotel to the railway station and town centre. Our room was an average hotel room with a balcony over looking the Rose Garden. Breakfast was adequate.
