Map & Directions

The 110 Express Bus runs direct from Nice Cote d’Azur Airport to Monaco every hour. The journey takes 45 minutes and guests should disembark at La Roseraie stop for the hotel. Alternatively it is a 10-minute helicopter ride from the airport to the helipad, a five-minute walk from the hotel. Valet parking is available (extra charge).

Once owned by Formula 1 driver David Coulthard, the Columbus Monte-Carlo is a discreet boutique hotel favored by savvy travelers and Grand Prix champions, including the likes of Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. It faces Princess Grace's rose garden in Fontvieille, a modern suburb to the south of downtown Monte-Carlo, right on the border with France.

Despite being adjacent to Monaco's helipad, this location ensures guests will have a quiet stay and benefit from lower prices than in the heart of the city. It is, however, only a free shuttle transfer away from the casino, restaurants and designer boutiques.

On site, there's a breakfast room and a smart outdoor pool (shared with the neighboring apartment complex) that’s open May-October. The Telegraph says the "service is spot-on -- youthful and friendly" and notes that the hotel is excellent value for money, especially in this swanky neighborhood.

The sophisticated rooms are minimalist, with clean-lined furniture and plenty of neutral tones. Sizes are generous, and there are lovely views from the little balconies on the higher floors.

From the press:
  • "Contemporary [and] reasonably priced" -- Condé Nast Traveler
  • "It’s hip enough for the young and sufficiently reassuring for the mature" -- The Telegraph
  • "In a city that's bursting at its impeccably-tailored seams with high end hotels, the sexy, slinky Columbus still manages to stand out from the crowd" -- Lonely Planet
