The hotel is clean and the room not too small. there is not a proper reception area but only a small alcove in a corridor, but the owner tries his best. The bathroom was a bit dated but clean as the room. The real inconvenience is that the cleaning lady comes before 9am so woke us up every morning much earlier than we intended. The location is good, walking distance from the sea and the pedestrian street of Menton with shops and bars. It is also at 15 mins away walking from the privatly run beaches (where you can rent an umbrella and chair). There is no safe and minibar in the room which makes things a bit difficult in the summer, but considering the price, definitely lower than other central hotel, we were not unhappy with our choice. A little note, one of stops in Menton of the bus to/from Nice Airport (n.110) is very close to the hotel (by the turism office), do not get convinced by the hotel manager to walk all the way to or from the Bus station (Gare Routiere)

Be ready to sweat it out. Only 4 rooms have AC and we weren't in one, very warm in July. Pay parking about two blocks away. Close to "beach," or rocky area you can swim at. Menton caters to Italian tourists...and the "hospitality" personnel working in town are, for the most part, clearly tired of them. Restaurants are mostly italian influenced, an the french food you find is watered down. The lift broke down for a day..tough on us with a stroller and baby gear. Found hairs in our bed when we went to sleep for the first time. Would be a decent room if I paid 40 Euros.

The price we paid was far in excess of the quality and type of room offered. The street is very noisy, and it continues throught the night! No airconditioning, and maintenance is not up to standard, our room had a constantly dripping tap, and a shutter was missing completely! There were other hotels with far better prices in the area.

Booked into the hotel as Menton was a top off on the Home2Rome banger rally. Booked a twin room and was provided with a double with no alternates available a camp bed was squeezed into the room and I had a restless night. The receptionist did not know how the booking mistake happened, but at least one other group of guests there had the same problem. To make matters worse the rooms shower did not work properly or there was no hot water as it was freezing.

El Hotel esta bien, la ubicación es muy buena, el servicio también, lo único q la habitación en la que estuve daba a la calle y se oía mucho ruido. El precio lo veo un poco caro ya que no tiene ventilador, claro q para la costa azul en Julio me imagino que todo sube.Lo bueno es a que estas muy cerca de Mónaco y de Italia. :)

We stayed at this hotel recently and based our decision on the reviews on Venere. It did say the hotel was loud and we decided to go with it anyhow. It was not as bad as the reviews said. We were able to open our windows- contrary to one review- but the seagulls outside crow all night and they will keep you awake. The walls are paper thin and we did occasionally hear our neighbors but it was overall fine. The staff was very welcoming although at times there would be people at the desk who didn't speak any English. The shower in our room was inadequate but it was only 5 days and anyhow, when you pay for a budget hotel, you can't expect the Ritz. We were very satisfied with what we got for the price we paid. The key thing was it was easy to get to and it was very convenient to the Old Town, the train and the beach.

We stay at Richelieu at the first week in may, 2007. The hotel offers no private parking, so you had to carry vour baggage almost a long way. All three rooms we´ve booked are in bad condition: Tiny, loud and not really clean. The location is very good for a walk through the town ´cause it´s almost in the center of the town, near to the beach and the harbour.

As a small Hotel owner myself, I found the Richelieu very good value for money.Especially with the free breakfast offer.The Proprietor could not have been more helpful. We would definitely stay again.Menton itself is delightful,and the Hotel is in an excellent position, easy to get to by public transport, and very near to the sea and town.

Hôtel situé à mi-chemin de la gare SNCF et de la mer. Idéal donc pour s'en aller visiter les villes des environs (Monaco, Vintimille, San Remo, ...etc) dans la journée et se plonger dans la mer le soir. Chambres agréables, couloirs médiocres. L'hôtel donne sur une rue un peu bruyante (circulation). Nombreux magasins et restaurants dans les environs immédiats de l'hotel. Belles plages de galets à 300 mètres. Patron sympathique, ancien banquier, qui vous conseillera pour vos futurs placements à Monaco...

The rooms are very small, even for europe standards. There was roadworks going on ourside very early in the morning and late into the evening, and with no aircon it was too hot when the window was closed and there was no double glazing. However, it is only a short walk to the centre, beaches, casino et cetera. I would not recommend this hotel.

We had a great stay at this hotel. As usual we found venere efficient and accurate, although the website pictures did not do the hotel justice! All staff were welcoming and helpful and the rooms comfortable. The only downsides were the size of the shower cubicle for two biggish guys were very small!, and the fact you could hear most things going on next door to your room and outside it. This fact did not bother us though but did some other guests.
