and good value for money. Even if it´s near to the center we rent a car to explore the entire sea side. The hotel itself is kept very clean, the view from our balcony over the beautyful gardens to the sea really relaxing. Good breakfast.

Dear Guest, many thanks for your kind review. Indeed we are located in a nice area, very easy to reach, with a parking under the hotel. Monaco is a small territory and it's easy to get around, even without a car, with the city buses and our complimentary shuttle bus (on request). Kind regards C.

The hotel was lovely, the staff extremely friendly. For the location (which is about a 10 minute cab ride to the city center), this is a great find. If you opt for a sea view room, ask for one with a balcony that is not solid concrete - that tends to obstruct the view a bit more than I would...

We stayed at the Columbus hotel of Monaco for a long weekend in a classic double room viewing the sea. Our experience was quite positive as a whole and we shall definitely come again to this hotel, but there were some issues nevertheless. The sitting area was very attractive and luxurious, modern and warm, not like some frigid minimal sitting...

The hotel rooms are still spacious and nice and the location is very good if you are looking for a relaxed stay in Monte Carlo. The problem is that the management has decided to close the bar and the restaurant. As a consequence the breakfast is not at all good anymore: the waiters are not even taking you coffee or...

Dear Guest, we understand your disappointment if you have visited Columbus in the past when we had a restaurant and a bar.

We stayed at the Columbus for one night and were really impressed with the hotel and the rooms. We called ahead to inform them we were celebrating and they offered us complimentary VIP upgrade (turns out this was a bottle of red and macaroons in the room - but better than nothing).

Columbus is an affordable hotel, considering the fact you're in Monaco and hotel usually aren't really cheap here. It's located in the beautiful and rather quiet Fontvieille area, close to the Fontvieille yacht harbour and the Monaco heliport (in case you're not travelling by car or train). The helicopters take off flying over the sea, so you don't hear any...

As a regular traveller to Monaco I have been through all those fancy hotels: Monaco is not quiet, it is a busy country with lots of heli service and roaring cars. So what to do??
