The Ni Hotel stands out among the other establishments of Monaco not only for its stylish and modern interior but also its location in a friendly neighbourhood. It provides a fine level of service, with a touch of originality and humour... all-in-all a splendid establishment.

    Location 5.96 /10

    The Ni Hotel is situated in the popular Condamine neighbourhood, with numerous shops in the vicinity making for lively surroundings. Away from the crowds of the busy city centre, this is where the authentic soul of Monaco can be found. The Prince's Palace is a short stroll away, and you'll just have to follow the road down to the sea to reach the port in less than 5 minutes. If you take the time to walk around and let your gaze wander, you'll discover some old buildings reminiscent of the Italian influences of the city. The hotel is also only 5 minutes from the train station.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    True to the 'boutique hotel' concept, the establishment has banked on privacy. It has 17 guest rooms that come in 2 categories: Standard and Superior. A duplex room is also included in the offer. The standard rooms are spacious and boast a modern and minimalist interior, with great care taken so that nothing is overdone: the walls are bare and the furniture is limited to a strict minimum. The setting is quite original and every room has a different photo hanging above the bed, which can even be changed upon request, for an extra charge. The amenities are good and include a flat screen TV set with DVD player, ceiling light fixtures, duvets... Following the same concept, the bathroom is an example of pure simplicity, with space-age furniture... We quite liked it.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Compared with the other hotels of Monaco, the Ni Hotel definitely breaks away from the standard offerings and has turned itself into a boutique hotel. An urban establishment with a limited number of accommodation units, it has a strong taste for modern interior design. Opened in 2008 after a complete refurbishment, the outside appearance of the hotel is rather nondescript and reveals little of the wonders you'll discover inside. Once past the entrance, you'll find yourself immersed in a modern, zany, and slightly avant-garde setting.
    The neon-rimmed slanted openings will take your breath away, the walls boast various original pieces by modern artists (taken straight out of the owner's private collection), and the chic and black interior doesn't take itself too seriously. Access to the rooms is easy enough when the key cards work, and there are photos of guests adorning the corridor walls, making for a warm setting. The lift, partially made of glass, takes guests down to the underground fitness centre, which is rather well equipped, or to the first floor bar. Open from 6:00pm till 1:00am, this is the place to be for fans of a stylish setting. The overall effect is great, with a clever use of fabrics, colours, and light. There is also a large bay window offering a view of the sea in the distance. Several times a week, bands come here to play. The place is pretty and has a lot of humour, as seen in the men's lavatory. Outside, the small interior courtyard offers some shade between vegetation-covered walls. The cherry on top of the cake is the rooftop terrace from which you can enjoy the view: there is even a shower there to cool off during a tanning session, and a bar open from 6:00pm till 1:00am.

    To know

    In a typically French play on words, the bar is called the Ni (Nibar being French vernacular for a woman's breast).

      The Fairmont is a huge establishment that was built facing the sea, affording breathtaking views across the waters of Monaco. The hotel is typical of the American-style 'resort' hotel, meaning that everything here has been designed so that guests don't actually need to leave the sometimes maze-like hotel for anything. That being said, the Golden Square is just two minutes away for those who do fancy venturing out.

      This hotel was refurbished recently, but it's a pity the guestrooms didn't get the same modern makeover as the ground floor. The hotel is very well located, close to the Prince's palace and at the foot of the Rock. Additionally, it must be said that the hotel's Italian restaurant is excellent.

      The Port Palace offers Monaco's own underground living experience, but its classy facilities and terrace overlooking Port Hercule cannot hide the fact that it has been hollowed out of the rock, and is consequently a bit gloomy. The view from the restaurant terrace is unbeatable and is highly popular with thrill-seekers during the Monaco Grand Prix.

      The Columbus Hotel stands close to the small port of Fontvieille and is careful to maintain its peaceful surroundings, away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

      It's hard for this local hotel to really stand out for the quality of the accommodation it offers, particularly as it can prove pretty expensive. The hotel is very well-located, close to the Prince's Palace at the foot of the Rock, and its Italian restaurant is excellent.

      The Miramar occupies an ideal position opposite Port Hercule and the rock holding up the Prince of Monaco's palace; it is also a 5 minute walk from the Golden Square and its Casino de Paris. It is a pity that some of the rooms look a bit worn and have been decorated in a hesitant manner, because it is otherwise a cute little boutique hotel boasting a panoramic terrace.

      If you're after some Riviera-style glamour, the sea-facing Monte-Carlo Beach is definitely the place to be. With its back to a pine forest and its modern interior decorating, this highly intimate hotel is the stuff of dreams. Take note that there is a beach club on the same site as the hotel that offers its beautiful infrastructures, but also its concrete slab, to hotel guests and the general public alike.

      Another variation on Monaco-style luxury, the Hermitage Hotel stands out for it's Belle Epoque-inspired elegance. White is the dominant colour, as seen in columns and the quiet lounges, but the hotel also boasts some retro-modern touches such as works by Gustave Eiffel and the breathtaking view from the bar and restaurant. Guests of the hotel enjoy access to an exceptional spa, the Thermes Marins de Monte-Carlo.
