Our first impression of the hotel, based on parking the car in the underground garage behind the hotel, and the tiny antiquated lifts/elevators, was less than encouraging. Likewise our first impression of our room (with dreary old decor). But these first impressions dissipated and we came to appreciate the fact that this is a really nice, well-situated hotel. We would definitely come again.
The location is excellent, facing the sea, just meters away, and close, but not too close, to the center of Menton. Various nearby facilities (decent restaurants, snack places, mini-market, laundromat) were available. The room and beds were comfortable and the A/C worked fine. We had a balcony and a good angled view of the sea and promenade. The modern bathroom was excellent. The hotel lobby/bar was pleasant and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
