Reviewed 24 April 2013

Was upgraded to a huge fifth floor suite on arrival. 'As expected' facilities in the room, some furnishings a little threadbare. Housekeeping department requires some attention. 4 Euro espresso in room irritatingly expensive. Terrace no longer seems to be part of hotel as not able to charge meals to room, no wi-fi and breakfast is in the lobby...However reception staff excellent, it is a great location and was a wonderful stay. Will return.

Stayed one short night. Would have stayed longer it was a gorgeous hotel. Staff were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Spa bath was wonderful. Toiletries were luxurious. Rooms were beautifully decorated and maintained.

Room Tip: Fabulous bed! Room was gorgeous. Lovely staff.

I had the pleasure of a conference in Monaco last summer and picked this hotel as I'm a bit of an F1 nut and this hotel is nestled between two parts of the track, at a high and low level.

The rooftop bar was a great place to unwind at the end of a day in a dark, windowless conference venue, and the breakfast up here was particularly memorable.

It's a nicely understated place, which is nice against the gaudy Monaco backdrop and the staff are wonderful.

I'd recommend strolling the track from here, it'll be all the tour you need of the city, taking in the Casino and shopping malls.

We stayed here in March...I pick this hotel by the reviews it got...great location between the exit of the tunnel and corner of the mariner...if your Grand Prix fan...you will love this location. Fabulous views over the Mariner.......Hotel staff were lovely and happy to assist with with any questions we had...they even told us to catch the number 100 bus to Nice for the beautiful scenic drive for 2 euro return...take your camera the views a gorgeous. They also recommend a restuarant near by that was really lovely and not too pricey. We have travelled throughout Europe and we have picked our hotels from the trip adviser reviews....we have not been disappointed ...everyone one we have chosen has been exactly what the reviews have said they were...and we have been pleasantly surprised that we have been happy with all our choices...and would certainly go back to everyone of them...so all I can say is take the time to do the research on the hotels and you will return home as happy as we are with our choices...happy travels...

The service is good and friendly, free wifi close to many attractions by

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the last 6 months and it is my #1 hotel for Monaco. The location is fantastic, there is no better in Monaco. The Staff are really friendly, helpful and go out of their way to help. The reception is small and understated but welcoming whereas the rooms are just huge and everyone has a view of the Marina. The terrace on a warm evening is just the place to sit and let the day just fade away. Free WiFi in the rooms and I have never had an issue with poor signal etc great for business and Skype.
The Restaurant has fantastic views of the Marina and the food is pretty good to go with it, also one of the more consistent Espresso shots in Monaco if you like your coffee.
There are cheaper hotels but in Monaco you get what you pay for and in this instance you get more than you pay for of my experience in Monaco.
Book early that's all I will say, it's worth the wait.

On arrival we needed to wait an hour for our room so thought the hotel must be busy. However, we only saw a handful of guests during our stay. The top floor restaurant and terrace was closed for full refurbishment – this wasn’t known at the time of booking but was detailed on the website at a later stage, so we were aware of this in advance. When we reached our room there was a significant drilling noise from the terrace but we were going straight out to explore so this could be avoided. The terrace/restaurant has a superb setting with spectacular views over the port – it will be very nice when complete.

Our room was great, spacious and nice modern décor. The bathroom was fabulous with a Jacuzzi bath and separate shower, lovely bathroom products, robes and slippers. Mini bar prices are steep – also be careful as the Nespresso capsules which appear to be complimentary are actually 4 euros each – quite naughty given the room rates!

Thanks to a previous tripadvisor review we were aware to expect a notice advising that food and drink bought outside the hotel cannot be consumed in the hotel or a 20 euro charge (per person) will be applied. The hotel requests that room service is used, at a charge of 9.5 euros. Again, a little unnecessary and encourages guests to make other arrangements!

On the first evening we had a turn down service and 2 Monaco chocolates left on the bed with the weather forecast – a nice touch.

Overall a very nice stay – super location to reach everything and worthwhile if you can book a deal. A special thank you to staff on check-out who were incredibly helpful with our onwards travel arrangements to Eze.

Room Tip: Higher floors have good views - we did request this but were allocated floor one.
