Lovely hotel - spacious, bright and well situated. The staff were helpful, the breakfast was tasty (eggs could have been warmer but it's tricky keeping buffet food warm!) and we enjoyed lovely meals in the restaurant at very competitive prices. The hotel is round the corner from the casino square (five minute walk) and the train station is next door.
The rooms were well-appointed, with a lovely powerful hot shower, comfortable beds and pillows, with tea/coffee making facilities. Ideal for a short break, but may be difficult for those with a lot of luggage as there wasn't a lot of space to unpack. Complimentary bottles of water were a nice touch.
We took advantage of the Heliair helicopter transfers - very efficient, saves a lot of hassle getting to and from Monte Carlo and a lovely experience. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and I would request a room with a balcony.
Monte Carlo is full of lovely things to see and do - highlights included lunch at the Cote Jardin at the Hotel de Paris, a visit to the Oceanographic Museum, watching the changing of the guard at the palace (11.55am every day), cocktails at the Café de Paris, gambling on a Saturday night at the casino (formal dress) and sitting in the harbour in the sun. The Japanese garden is a lovely place to relax and the Metropole shopping centre is a nice place to spend, spend, spend!
We'll be back!
