When it comes to luxurious getaways, the Principality of Monaco has much of Europe and the world beat. This royal enclave has been fashioned into a capital for the rich, giving it some of the best restaurants, beach clubs, bars, and hotels in the world.
Wondering where to stay in Monaco? This article will share the best hotels which can be found in this corner of the globe.
Found steps away from Monaco’s famed marina, Hotel Hermitage is one of the best choices you can make when deciding where to stay in Monaco.
After checking into your room (which comes with 12-foot ceilings, a balcony, and luxurious linens), begin your time in Monaco by enjoying a cocktail at the Crystal Bar. Boasting a commanding view of the harbor below, its cocktails will provide the perfect companion to the cobalt blue Mediterranean views that will lay before you.
Of course, one of the benefits of staying in a luxury hotel is all the high-end facilities that come with it. At Hotel Hermitage you’ll find plenty of facilities, including Vistamar Restaurant (which serves French Michelin Star cuisine), a beach club, casino, and fitness center.
Looking for a property in the center of town that is just as luxurious as the Hermitage? Hotel Metropole has everything you are looking for, as its rooms, amenities, and view will help you enjoy the perfect weekend away in Monaco.
We recommend the Junior Suite, as it has all the closets you’ll need to store your wardrobe, a massive bathroom clad in marble, and a large bed which feels like a cloud.
There are two restaurants on the premises, both opened and managed by Joel Robuchon (one of them has two Michelin stars – be sure to dine at it before heading home), and the pool area is as much an object d’ art as it is a place for recreation.
Mixing old world elegance with an unrelenting dedication to service, it is not an exaggeration to say that Hotel Metropole ranks among the finest places when you are deliberating on where to stay in Monaco.
