                              Excellent Hotel transport facility between Hotel and Monte Carlo using hotels transportation. Breakfast served in the hotel very good and so was dinner. Concierge services very very friendly , excellent.

                              The location was a little far from the center which we had not realised, necessitating Taxi Services . Although having rented a car it is very difficult to park in Monte Carlo and not easy to get around at all.

                              The staff were good, but the facilities poor and rather jaded

                              The nonsense with the swimming pool constantly being out of use. In 10 days we were able to use it once, we were then refused umbrella's and no drinks/food service was available. Hardly the mark of a quality hotel

                              Staff were poor and a lack of good service was apparent... They was going to over charge for the room but I had the booking com invoice so they could not and another unpleasant thing, we were on our honeymoon and there was no effort made for us in anyway, unlike like the other hotels we stayed at in fact when we walk to the reception they were busy making obvious comments about my wife's dress... The hotel room was not good value..one good point, was the member of staff who checks your cases in she was great and helped us find a hair dresser and lot of useful info and tips

                              I could not say it was a place I would not stay again

                              Very helpful crew

                              There is no balcony in a few rooms

                              Clean room and good food. Good service from Concierge - no service from Reception.

                              On arrival, the room keycard failed twice to open the door of 822 on the 8th floor. The room was changed to 722 on the 7th floor and worked. Meanwhile after a long journey I had to visit the reception on 3 occasions (the luggage meantime was in room 822), while me wife waited on the 8th floor for 20 minutes.In the restaurant, french fries and a green salad were ordered to accompany the meal. Neither appeared, but both found their way onto the bill. A hotel of the standard to which the Columbus aspires would immediately have acknowledged these errors with a gesture to the customer - a coffee or a drink which costs the hotel very little. The furniture in the public areas of the hotel is 'tired', and the staff at reception gave the same impression. When I complained I was told I would need to speak to the Manager the following morning when I was due to leave. Too little and too late for me to bother - I was not looking for money off!

                              The staff were friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant for dinner was good and had a good variety. Rooms were large.

                              Bathroom was small. Shower screen leaked. Whole hotel needs up dating - we noticed this as we have stayed there twice before. Helipad is very noisy.

                              The staff were extremley rude on receptionTried to charge my guests for things that they did not have ( breakfast etc)Some of our guests were locked out of there room with a door malfunction on the saturday evening so we could not get changed from day to night which ruined the stay and no apology or compensation was given yet more incorrect charges were asked for.I would not stay in this hotel again or recommend it infact i would actualy discourage people from staying.The cost of the hotel and there drink and food was extortionate compared to other places in monaco and the value was unjustifiable.All together a very unpleasant stay

                              i am lucky to have a room with sea view. The hotel has good location and easy to take buses to look around Monaco.
