Although we absolutely loved the hotel, the only downside was the bed, and normally it would not be a problem, but my wife has prolapsed disks in her neck and a bad back and the bed made it extremely worse. She had to sleep standing up. I am sure if we had asked something could of been done but as we were up. early and out and back late, it was a bit awkward to ask. The bed was quite hard but it was a v shape so you were always rolling into the middle. Apart from that it was really lovely. Breakfast was good and the bar area was great. Good service everywhere. We will go back but before will ask about the bed

A very well located hotel with nice surroundings. The standard rooms are clean, yet rather small. Also you can pretty well hear what happens in the room next door. :-( The pool is outdoor and has got no heating - important detail, that is not included in the hotel description. The hotel's parking facilities are really limited, available on a first come first served basis. Being a busy weekend I have been invited to park the car somewhere nearby...

Ottimo hotel sotto tutti i punti di vista. Stanza molto ampia, pulitissima e confortevole, personale gentile ed efficiente, ambienti comuni spaziosi e curati (vedi piscina e giardino). Nel complesso credo che sia uno dei migliori a Menton anche per la sua spiaggia privata e il ristorante sul mare di ottima qualità. Non abbiamo fatto la prima colazione quindi non posso giudicare ma avendo dato un'occhiata al buffet mi sembra che anche quella sia all'altezza. Purtroppo per noi che viaggiavamo in auto con bagagli non c'era posto nel loro parcheggio custodito perchè è estremamente piccolo. Siamo stati comunque fortunati a trovarlo quasi davanti l'hotel. I miei due cani sono stati i benvenuti e in effetti ho pagato come se fossero uno.

Very positive, but I wouldn't like to have been in a back room as there is building work going on behind the hotel at the moment. The staff were helpful, but don't believe the lady who tells you the station is a 15 minute walk - it's more like 45 mins!

Although not very spacious, the rooms were very clean and well decorated. Unfortunately there was a lot of building work going on behind the hotel which was noisy in the early morning. The hotel receptionists were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is very close to a small supermarket and an little train station which we used for visiting Monaco. It is about a ten minute walk in to the town, but there are some good restaurants by the beach about 2 minutes walk away. The hotel pool was small but quiet and pretty and a definite bonus.

Really gorgeous hotel. Stylish and modern bar, pool, breakfast area etc. Rooms modern and fairly spacious. Excellent facilities at the beach and restaurant across the road. Only reason I can't rate the hotel any higher is due to a couple of 'altercations' with the staff which did not get resolved to my satisfaction. FIrstly, I reserved a double room yet was given a twin and when I questioned this at reception I was treated a bit like an inconvenience. Secondly, a metal parasol hit my husband in the face and cut his cheek and bumped his head on thier private beach and the staff didn't seem too bothered.

This is a fantastic hotel, if, and only if you choose a room at the front. We wanted a quiet room at the back, and as well as the promised mountain view we also got the sights and sounds of a massive building project immediately behind the hotel, so instead of the planned 10 night stay, we left after just one night. Their attempts to solve the problem were at best half hearted. We ended up in a much better hotel for just 2 euros more per night, and with a fabulous sea view in a much bigger and quieter room.

I stayed in a sea view room and I couldn't have been closer to the sea, what a sight first thing in the morning. Look to the left and you see the port and the mountains. Look to the right and you see the old town of Menton with the church of St Michel towering above. The rooms and balconies are beautiful. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The location is exactly right, a short walk to the old town and in a very pretty position. Absloutely faultless!!!!

Lovely room facing mountains. LOT of noisy traffic on main road at front - beware! Perturbed about an entry on hotel computer that we may (or may not?) have had a meal on last night in hotel restaurant - was this a genuine mistake? No need for taxi from bus or rail station - Bus 3 to Garavan stops outside hotel (Stade) - not bad for 1 euro! Lots of eating places in town. For pizza try Vecchio Forno, but for a super meal try Le Boudoir a bit below Gare Routiere.

We usually stay at three star family owned hotels has they offer a home atmosphere. This hotel has friendly staff and are hellpful with the guest's needs and requests. I would recommend this hotel highly. However, if you bring a vehicle, there may be a problem with parking as it is first come first severed as the parking spaces at the hotel are limited. However, you really do not need a car as public transportation is adequate and the beach and old town are all within walking distance.

The hotel was far better than the 3 stars given it - all of the hotel is very well-furnished in bright colours and the beds appear new and do not sag in the middle which is not untypical of some in Europe. The only thing to watch out for is any recommendation for a local restaurant called Le Galleon (NOTHING TO DO WITH THE HOTEL) - the food is good but be careful you actually get what you ordered/expected and that the portions are realistic - ours were not. If I were the owner of the hotel I would NOT ever recommend this restaurant.

We liked this hotel. It was clean, spacious, with good service and friendly staff. It offers good value. However, it is on the edge of Menton and might not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties. If you travel by train get out at Menton Garavan, not Menton. The only other downside was the sea view was across a 4 lane road and a car park. If you like pure peace and quiet this hotel may not be for you.

Overall a super stay. Hotel lovely with relaxing and beautifully furnished public areas (Venere website photos not up to date in May 04). Hotel location meant a pleasant evening walk along promenade into Menton (10 mins). A road between hotel and beach quite noisy day/evening. Double glazed rooms with air-con proved adequate against noise. Only drawback, the hotel beach restaurant & private beach closed earlier than stated (4/10/04 - re-open May 05).

The hotel came as a nice suprise as it looked much better than its photos - something that rarely happens - as it had been recently renovated and looked very chic and elegant. It has excellent facilities, having a pool and a beach restaurant across the road. It's also a 5-minute walk into the main town of Menton.

The Napoleon is a delightful, well run and tastefully decorated hotel. The downside is it's location on a very busy main road which is noisy at the front of the hotel where the pool and rooms with balcony and seaview are located. We would stay there again but choose a mountain view room which would be quieter and not incur a supplement for a scenic but noisy location.
