“Great location, tasteful decor and romantic setting”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

This is our fifth time visiting the hotel de Monaco. We love the location as Mala beach is only a short walk away and it is one of the most picturesque beaches to visit! The hotel is only small but very elegant and romantic, there are always candles lit and the black White and gold furnishings are very tasteful. The hotel is not really suitable for young children as there are many stairs to climb to the rooms and the rooms themselves are not very spacious. On previous occasions we have stayed in rooms 16 and 25 and the bathrooms were extremely small. This time we were in room 22 which had a double sink and more spacious bath/shower. There are a few details that the manager needs to attend to though -one of the sinks leaked, the grouting in the bathroom needs redoing and the box trees outside need weeding and pruning!! The breakfast is also extortionate 18 euros for cereals, fruit etc. It is advisable to skip this and walk into cap d'ail (2 mins up the hill) and have breakfast in Edmunds 7 or 9euros or buy it from the local patisserie or creperie! Aside from these points it is a lovely hotel, the manager was very helpful in regards to train times and bus information. I would highly recommend a visit!

Thanx once again for a wonderful stay at this small and personal boutique hotel situated in Cap d'Ail, only a 15 minutes run next to the ocean from Monaco. With excellent service and fair rates Hotel de Monaco is a great base camp for wherever your expeditions throughout the Riviera may take you. And should you need to recover from a hard day of shopping, or a night on the town, Mala Beach is less than a 10 minute walk away...

This is a really beautiful hotel in a quiet residential area surrounded by expensive homes with leafy grounds. We loved the quiet surrounds and the proximity to Mala beach and quality restaurants. It's a short drive to Monaco or a 40 minute walk along a sealed path by the sea. Everything was lovely including the stylish decor, comfortable beds, decadent breakfast and friendly staff. Antony was most helpful. We would most definitely stay here again and will tell all our friends.

Although we were pleased with the location and look of this hotel, it was distinctly let down by the inaction and attitude of the staff.

There were 3 of us staying at the hotel along with my friends baby and the room we stayed in was a 'suite' with a single bed and a double. The set up of the suite didn't appear to be a permanent thing as the single bed was just a metal camp bed in the dressing room/adjoining space. The bed was quite small although it was comfortable enough. We stayed in room 14 and on going to bed the first night we were alarmed at what sounded like a refrigeration unit suddenly starting up on the floor directly above us. We thought it might be connected with the aircon which we didn't even have switched on - after trying and failing to locate the remote I looked outside our room and still couldn't figure out what was making this noise. Suddenly the sound stopped, to our relief, only to start up again 10 minutes later!

This went on for the ENTIRE night - causing us all to have a very disruptive sleep. It was essentially 10 minutes of refrigeration noise and 10 minutes off - awful.
In the morning, I told one of the members of staff on duty about the noise - he seem perplexed and said the room above was empty but that he would look into it, he apologised at least. We were out for most of the day, on return to our room in the early evening we discovered the sound was still persisting, 10 mins on, 10mins off - clearly this was a constant thing. I spoke with another man who was on duty - he spoke very good english and possibly was English although i didn't catch his name. Clearly the problem hadn't been dealt with by the first person I spoke with and hadn't been relayed to anyone else!

I asked him to come up to our room so he could hear it for himself, which he did. He seemed confused about the location of the noise although suspected that it might be the aircon ducts in the ceiling outside our room - heating or cooling the water that goes into the aircon - very strange as no one was using any aircon on the floor we were on. What I found hard to believe is that this noise came as a surprise to them - surely other people had complained or at least mentioned it? it was so loud. Anyway, the staff member/owner said he would look into it - he seemed very disinterested and he never smiled. He was certainly not apologetic or had any intention of offering a solution such as changing rooms. On leaving the hotel for dinner he advised (after I queried it again) that he had called someone and they would need to come and take a look at it, tomorrow.

If the first person I spoke to that morning had acted as he promised then someone could have come out the same day and we would have avoided another night of disrupted sleep.
What particularly annoyed me was that there was absolutely NO apology offered and NO solution or discount of any kind. On checking out the next morning he didn't even ask if we still had a problem with the noise, I had to tell him that in case he was wondering, the noise had persisted throughout the night...We were very disappointed by the attitude we found here.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 14!!

Very stylish boutique hotel, small number of rooms but all kitted out perfectly. The downstairs reception follows this trend with a small bar and seating area for morning breakfasts.

Only stayed one evening unfortunately, it would have been a pleasure to stay for longer.

As per most French hotels there is no tea/coffee provided in room, so I can't really say that's a negative for here, however it would top the hotel off nicely.

It has been a few months since i stayed at this hotel but I wanted to write a review because in the cold wintry weather ive been dreaming of another vacation in the cote d'azur :)
We found this hotel by chance on the internet as our original reservations with marriott got messed up and we found ourselves 2nd weekend of july, full tourist season without a hotel in monaco. I am so happy we stayed here as the hotel was wonderful. Its a luxury boutique hotel 5 mins walking from mala beach,a stunning little beach with nice beach club and bar, adn about 10 mins drive to downtown montecarlo. The hotel is meticulous, very cool style, our room was brand new, top of the line amenities , great very comfortable bed, and breathtaking view from our window! The staff is very nice and arranges for taxis, gives you train info, etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel even for a romantic weekend getaway. I hope to be back this summer!

We arrived into Monaco late in the afternoon in the off season, with many places closed and dreading Monaco prices. This was an amazing find - 2 minutes drive from Monaco itself, under 100 euros a night, nice shaded back garden, excellent service, very quiet, and near the cliff walk from Cap d'Ail to Monaco (incredibly beautiful). Decorations are chic, hotel is very clean, has a boutique feel to it. As other reviewers have noted, the management are not initially warm in their demeanor. But we found them very accommodating and helpful when we asked. Manager speaks impeccable English.

Room Tip: Rear-facing rooms are quieter, but have no sun. In hot summer, this may be a good thing.
