Pros: - Location. - Value. - Full kitchen with plates, silverware, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, etc.
Cons: - The heater could have been fixed. - The bathroom obvioiusly needed a very good cleaning for the mold.
Location: Very good location in that you can walk into Monaco very easily. There is also a bus stop not too far away.
This hotel is a very good value. You get good space and a full kitchen with dishwasher for a very good price. That being said, there were several issues with my room. The bathroom smelled heavily of mold. I could not see any mold, but the smell was there. Also, the heater did not work so I was very cold. I told the front desk and nothing was done. You also have to be OK with the fact that they do not clean the rooms. For me, it was not a problem. Other than those two issues, the hotel room was a good size and it was easy to walk into Monaco. It is also a good value.

Perfect value place to spend time in Monaco!Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: Staff. The rooms are true to the photos. The location, and price are excellent, making this the best value for Monaco.
Cons: Would prefer more rooms with twin beds. One student had an issue with the mattress.
Location: All of Monaco is within walking distance. The train station is 5 minutes away and takes you to Italy or France.
This is our second time here - the first with family, this time with a group of 16 students. The staff are professional and kind. They worked to accommodate our early arrival. They addressed my concerns prior to the trip about other comments on Trip Advisor. There are safes in the rooms for laptops, and valuable. I chose this because it is a 5 minute walk down the stairs to the main train station (Monte Carlo), and 10 minutes to the Casino, or port. The price is a great value - the rooms have a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stove top, and sink, with dishes and pots. Great way to keep costs reasonable, while exploring Monaco, and the Riviera. I highly recommend it!

Handy location. Reasonable rates.Posted Jul 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was satisfied. Leisure and luxury were not a priority on this trip; the emphasis was on practicality and convenience. In this sense the Adagio Monte Cristo proved to be a good choice, and the rates were reasonable compared with potential alternatives. The availability of a car-parking space was also a factor. It is regrettable that this could not be booked in advance and thus guaranteed. We were "lucky".

Lots of reasons NOT to stay herePosted Jul 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Chose not to use Google maps on account of the reviews that said it was mismapped, but after asking for directions twice we could not find the place. We called, and rather than being helpful, the hotel person said she had "never heard of the street we were on" (which was three blocks away!) When we arrived shortly afterwards, she wouldn't open the locked door (despite our knocking) so we had to wait for someone to come out. Then she demanded confirmation of our booking FROM ME! She wanted me to produce a piece of paper indicating I had the reservation, and we had already prepaid! She wouldn't let us check in without it. Passports weren't good enough. Well, I didn't have a print out (I assume that hotels have their own records), so I showed her my email confirmation on my tablet. That wasn't good enough either--she said that I had to email it to her. I told her I had no connection to do so, and she rudely informed me that with their free wifi, I did, and blurred quickly over how to connect. When I didn't understand, she was even ruder explaining again. Then after I told her I sent the email, I stood there waiting for 5 minutes while she ignored me until finally I had to ask if she got the email. Well we finally got our prepaid room, but it was the absolute worst and rudest service of our entire trip! Rooms are nothing special either. They look better in the pictures. Indeed the comments about a pull out bed are correct. There is only a sofa bed.

Excellent kitchen facilities.Posted Jul 18, 2013
Hotel staff responsiveness was extremely slow. Had to wait for an hour to get an extra blanket. Also, the staff wouldnt come to the room. Guests are expected to collect things from the reception.

Apartment close to MonacoPosted Jul 15, 2013
Pros: Rooms was well equiped and good space with balcony
Cons: Rude staff at reception and breakfast in the hotel is very expensive if you chose to take it!
Location: Close to Monaco station but a lot of very hills to climb. Road in front of hotel can be very noisy too!
Well equipped room and kitchen facilities with space saving beds, which are comfy despite being sofa beds. Big balcony but no view, it looks over a very narrow road to buildings opposite. Close to Monaco station, 5mins on foot but to walk there requires either two very steep hills or a short cut of two very steep flights of stairs. Neither are for the feint heared, even without a suitacse to pull behind you! Road is very noisy throughout the day. Staff at reception were rude everytime we spoke with them and at the weekend it was full with teenagers who had come to party all night in Monaco and had no respect for other guests. Breakfast buffet is €10.50/person/night in the hotel but there are numerous supermarkets/bakers within 5mins of the hotel if you fancied saving a bit of money! Would recent if looking for somewhere close to Monaco that is a bit cheaper or if looking to do self catered for part.

Unresolved problems in the roomPosted Jul 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is well located and the apartment we had was spacious with a well-equipped kitchen area. There were problems in the apartment that could have been put right before our arrival: the toilet was set for too low a flush volume; the shower wall fixing was broken; and one of the beds had a broken leg. The first two were fixed after a day, but the bed was not - although a temporary repair was made on the second visit of the 'technician', we did not think the repair good enough to risk sleeping in that bed. The staff (other than the technician) did not seem bothered about resolving the problems or recognising the inconvenience to us. We were told that the manager would be informed of our complaints, but he did not contact us at all. We would add that the car parking was expensive!

A pleasant stayPosted Jul 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Must have forgotten after we booked that the room came with a sofa bed instead of a proper one but this turned out to be comfy. Rooms comfortable clean, not too hot. Service at the front desk good. Location is ok if you don't mind a walk up lots of steps from the harbour.
