    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.

    ... the difference when I was trying to make my hair dryer fit! He told me I needed an adaptor and that I could get one from reception. It was very nice of him to help and not just laugh at me! Afterwards we walked into Bern, following the river most of the way. The city had a lovely old town. We were unfortunate to just miss seeing the large town clock tolling and the characters decorating it moving, but it was beautiful all the same. We ...

    A Nice walk

    ... a few lollies but as we would have to carry anything we bought, we walked out empty handed.

    We took the short cut back to the beaches, going around the hill and saw the Italian expo. We had seen the tents the day before and had assumed it was being packed up; however it was only now having its first day. As we walked around, we realised that we were too hot and bothered, it didn’t help that everyone was only speaking Italian ...

    ... On our tour we walked to the cathedral where they were married and went inside and saw their graves; both covered in flowers. When Grace died in 1982 in a car crash the prince put flowers on her grave every day, when he died the government continued to place the flowers on her grave and his (next to her) too. Prince Albert is their son, they had two other children; both daughters. After the cathedral we headed to the Palace. I ...

    ... formally as we had been told was required but most had made an effort to fit the dress code. Black trousers for women were fine. Philip and Rex had hired dinner suits and John looked good in the suit he had carried with us from New Zealand.

    The others had done a trip along the coast and to a village. We were amazed to hear they had had rain in the village although it had not spoilt their visit. They had had a very good guide who had pointed out where Grace Kelly had ...
