Very bad

The hotel standard has dropped a lot, we have over the years stayed here on a number of occasions. we checked in on the first day and, the safty deposit was broken, one of the tv was not working, the shower needed repair. we then rang down for conditioner to be told they had none and was not available. later we rang twice to request a tooth brush but it was never delivered. we did ask again in the morning and that time it came. at breakfast first day part of the room was cut of by a line of chairs, had heated discussion with staff as to why we could not sit there ( getting ready for lunch, at 9.15 an ??) his we suggested was just wrong and out of order in a top hotel. the breakfast itself was poor, eggs of a very cheap powder type, no bacon etc. next day the staff where on strike, with picket line so obviously management are not being let to run the hotel

Lovely hotel!

This is a great hotel, in the fontvieille area of monaco - clean, friendly staff, spacious room, delicious breakfast of fresh pastries and fruit which can be eaten on the terrace. the hotel was in the middle of some refurbishment while we were there, but this wasn't really much of an issue. some of the carpets were threadbare, but these were obviously in the process of being replaced. the room was quiet at night with a stunning view of the sea. there was a decent hairdryer and proper ironing board and iron in the room. i would definitely use this hotel again if i came back to monaco.
