      Historical Traveler Reviews Columbus Monte-Carlo



      We have just spent 3 nights at The Columbus and I can honestly say I cannot fault it.

      Everything is very stylish, our room was spacious and the food was great. Started most evenings in the bar which has a really good atmosphere.

      All staff were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely be going back at some point.

      Loved Monaco


      We loved the hotel & Monaco !

      Staff are lovely and friendly.

      Our room was a good size & clean with a great big bed. (good pillows too).

      Enjoyed the continental breakfast time at the hotel as had plenty of choice ...

      We also tried the restaurant/brasserie at lunchtime and it was a real treat.

      Only thing I would say to be aware of is that the pool is shared with apartments (though I think perhaps hotel guests get priority - not sure).

      We would defo go back to Monaco and stay at columbus !

      Fantastic Hotel ! ! ! !


      Me and my husband spent a week at the Columbus in August and were over the moon ! We had been upgraded to a junior suite as we were staying for a while and had a fantastic sea view. The room was immaculate and all the facilities in the hotel were excellent. The pool was clean and not too crowded.

      The overall experience was fantastic and we will definitely return. The only thing that they could improve on was that some of the staff could of been more friendly. I would recommend this hotel 100 % !

      Loved it!


      From the moment we stepped out of the car the service was impeccable. Modern, clean and spacious rooms, brand new fully equiped gym. Didnt eat at the restaurant, but who would want to with places like zebra square on your door step. We will be back...asap!

      Contemporary Luxury


      We stayed in the Columbus Hotel for 1 night during our Honeymoon which we were staying in Nice for. We got the train from Nice which was really convenient. When we arrived at the hotel we were immediately struck by it's cosy, luxury contemporary feel. We had booked a superior room with partial see/mountain view and when we opened the door we were over the moon. It was fab (in stark contrast to our hotel in Nice - the Boscolo Park). In fact it was so nice we considered checking out of our hotel in Nice and moving here for the rest of our holiday but in the end we only stayed the night. We have vowed to return to this hotel - one of the best I have stayed in.



      We stayed at Columbus last year in June and it was an incredible experience. The moment you enter Columbus you forget everything outside - the staff is extremely helpful, the interior is great ! Ask for the VIP treatment - it is superb and gives you the feeling your the most spoiled person in the world. Perfect for a weekend away !!

      The best


      I have just moved to Portland from Europe. I would advise anyone travelling to Europe this summer to try and visit Monaco and stay at The Columbus Hotel.I have stayed there 4 times in the last 2 years and each time has been wonderful.The accomadation is excellent and the service is very friendly and prompt. The deocr is superb, a must for all to see.Enjoy your stay at The Columbus.

      Nothing more than 3 star


      My husband and I stayed here with our 5 year old in August for 2 nights. It was clean and the location was great. The staff was average being neither fantastic or horrible. For a three star hotel rating it was just that. The overall feel of the hotel was a little cool. Our balcony door was broken and could not be locked. Next time would try and find a new hotel.

      Quite simply the best hotel I have ever stayed at!


      From the decor to the view to the toiletries to the nice turndown touches, this hotel was quite simply the best hotel I have ever stayed at...a magical experience. Take the helicopter from the Nice land right beside the hotel. Don't miss the chocolate martinis at the bar...again the best, bar none.

      Affordable boutique hotel in Monaco


      We found a little bit of South Beach in the heart of Monte Carlo. The Columbus is a funky, terrfic, boutique hotel in the harbor area of Monte Carlo. The staff were warm, friendly and helpful. The rooms were great, but ask for one with a view-they are a little bigger. The amentities, including the luxurious soaps, fluffy towels and robes, spacious and well stocked gym are better than many 5 star hotels. All for an incredible price. The only issue is the fact that it is not in the main part of Monte Carlo-which for some is an added benefit. We loved it so much we are going back to Monte Carlo again-principally to sat at the Columbus.

      We drove to Nice and saw the old city. Some went to shop, others went to the Promenade to walk around.

      ... Monaco was uneventful enough, it basically travels through a mountain to a slightly different part of the coast that, for some reason, Monaco got to keep. Here's where they keep the big boats....holy ****. Just one, after another, after another and seemingly all were registered to the UK or its Channel Islands......what a tax haven the country must be. Anyways we took those in and eventually found our way to the famous square with the casino. A ...

      Today we were in Monte Carlo, Monaco. We did not really plan to travel to Monte Carlo for our Europe trip, but we had a bit of time. Thus, we took a bus from Nice, France to Monte Carlo, Monaco.

      Monte Carlos is a capital city of Monaco. It is situated on an escarpment at the base of the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera (Wikipedia, 2012). It is held for "The Monaco Grand Prix" , "Circuit de ...

      ... have to offer. However, I can't complain about my stay, it has been sociable and still relaxing.

      My first day I meandered down along the beach. The water is unbelievable blue and clear. I made my way up the Colline du Chateau. It was not an easy walk, especially since it was about 85 degrees and 90% humidity. But it was well worth it because the view out over the city and ocean was spectacular. There used to ...

      ... early night. We were both pretty tired from our busy schedule over the last few weeks and Steve had caught a cold.

      While Nice is pretty, I actually prefered the little towns along the coast that we visited the next day. Eze was a really neat old medieval town with a great view and the drive from there to Monaco was stunning. Steve even said it could be comparable to the Great Ocean Road in Australia. Yachts were scattered on the bay and ...
