    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.

    ... where the girls were staying and once they got ready, we headed out to do our share of sightseeing. With the sun now out in full force, there were beachgoers aplenty even though it was a stone beach and not a typical sand beach. I’m still not sure how people can lay on a stones for hours. We went to the lookout point near the high end of the coastline and took several photos. Even as we were going through this clicking frenzy, we kept thinking how none of the photos do ...

    ... far along we turned off to the right and went down some streets. We went into a few shops. We managed to find an adapter!! YAY!! The french plugs are weird, not what we had. Simon also bought an apple - he was craving fruit!

    It started to sprinkle so we headed back to shower and get ready for dinner. By the time we did
    that it wasn't raining anymore. We headed into our street and found a place just near the hotel for dinner. We split a bolognaise.

    ... The company is very old and well known and this probably comes from the fact that hundreds of years ago, the owner was invited to Versailles to make perfumes for the Queen of France, which started the whole trend of wearing perfume.  We got to see the traditional process undertaken to make perfume, starting with getting the essence from the flowers. Depending on the type of flower, it takes up to 4 tonnes of flowers to get just one litre of essence. The ...

    ... The rocks are very smooth I’m guessing from years of the sea washing over them. A person can rent a lounge chair in areas that are considered private beaches but most people just spread their towel out and lay down on the rocks. Towards one end of the promenade Robert let us walk into the sea if we wanted to, most of us just got our feet wet. It ...
