Excellent value, excellent alternative to a hotel.

Located just minutes from Larvotto beach on the Monaco coast, this set of apartments offers outstanding value. The location is bitter sweet, however. Monaco is set over 3 or so levels, and being on the 3rd tier, this does include going up and down stair cases and hills quite often. There are public lifts though, with one quite local, but it's sometimes hard to navigate the multi-tiered system they have. The apartment itself, although not a hotel, offers a hotel-like stay. You lose things like room service, an in-house bar and concierge, but you gain a kitchenette with a small hob, dishwasher, fridge and icebox freezer, which is very handy! I believe each room has air conditioning and a balcony but sea views are limited. Monaco is a place of high-rise buildings, with one located directly opposite. There IS a gap to view the sea from, however, but it is not what I would call a "view". There is also a communal roof terrace with sun loungers, but I must admit to never having used it. The room is clean and tidy, cleaners provide fresh bed sheets, towels and a general clean of the room as well as filling the dishwasher whilst you are out, each day. We did notice a few hiccups, such as the balcony door not locking and not enough pillows, but overall, we had an excellent stay. The staff are very friendly, speak superb English and are extremely helpful. Although reception "leaves" at 8:30, we found there was always someone there, even at 1am. I would happily return!!
