    Wish we'd had a higher room so could enjoy the views. Ground floor looks out over the car park but rarely in room anyway so not a big deal.

    Very spacious apartment. Warm. Hot showers with good water pressure. No dusturbance by service unless asked for. Beautiful bar and outdoor balcony area. TV in each bedroom as well as lounge. Swimming pool fab. Staff cheerful and friendly

    Broken appliances and 3 forks for 4 persons!
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • City Suite
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Some of the major appliances were broken. For example, the dishwasher was not working at all as it was not possible to close it properly. The washing machine was leaking and when we returned after our tour we had a huge water puddle in the kitchen. The equipment in the kitchen was a joke, not even the basic number of items, e.g. we had 3 forks for 4 guests. Some of the window handles/locks were broken, and it would have been quite easy to enter the apartment through the window, which is not funny if you have a camera and notebook in your hotel. All in all, our apartment (no 5) was very badly maintained. Unfortunately, the management did not react accordingly to these problems. Especially with regards to the annoying problems, the apartment was much too expensive.

    The apartment was a very spacious with two separate bedrooms and one kitchen/dining/living room.

    The apartment was hard to find with no visible sign on the building out the back to direct us to go around the corner. The heating boiler went off all night . We had rang the front desk. A staff member came up at around 11:30pm said it would stop soon . But it continued all night.

    The apartment was lovely . Very nice , spacious , very clean .

    dated apartments. no cork views for any lower floors. smelt unused and of cigarette smoke.one tea towel for a whole week provided only, two bath towel, two hand towels only for a whole week...no housekeeping at all and no provisions to be able to clean yourself. ensure you have high apartment.long walk from town up hill and even from bus stop its uphill and steep. drinks and food very expensive in hotel and not worth cost.

    comfy beds, lovely hot water in shower. we did find staff very friendly and helpful. overall the apartments were clean but not quite as pictures ..no cushions, no placemats, no flowers very stark and uninviting. and dark.

    We were in the middle of a construction zone & our apartment was on the ground floor with the construction machinery right behind us. We had to keep our curtains closed & it was so dark. We couldn't get our car out or in a few times because large trucks were delivering materials. Booking.com should have notified us of this before our stay. The staff told us that they had told them of the problems at the hotel a while ago. Unfortunately, there was nowhere else to go.

    Breakfast was delicious & staff was very helpful.

    Beds comfortable, even the extra bed we asked for.
    • Leisure trip
    • Group

    Apartment had a distinct damp odor, and perhaps had been smoked in. Also a smell of fragrance that may have been used to try to cover that up. A large trash bag had been left outside the door and not picked up for 2 days. Finally, parking was a big problem one of the days. A wedding Saturday night, a conference Sunday morning and patrons of the leisure center made for a mess.

    Beds comfortable, even the extra bed we asked for. Apartment clean, well stocked and fitted. Nice to have access to all the hotel amenities. The staff at Montenotte are very nice and accommodating, and the food in the bar was very good.
