Fodor's Expert Review Napoléon

29 porte de France, Menton, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06500, France

This elegantly modern hotel in Garavan—east of the town center toward Italy—is hard to beat when it comes to value, especially with the attentive service, a swimming pool and a fitness room, as well as the contemporary furnishings that make it feel like a luxury hotel even though it's not. The breakfast buffet (€12), which can also be served in room, shows unusual attention to detail, and comes with delicious coffee. Each of the three suites is named after an artist who had an impact on Menton, such as painters Cocteau and Sutherland; sea-view rooms underwent renovations in 2013. It's important to note the hotel is not affiliated with a not very reputable Plage Napoléon, but it does have an agreement with the neighboring Le Festival Plage.

PROS

  • warm and efficient service
  • sea and mountain views from rooms on upper floors worth the price
  • accessible for those with mobility issues (grab bars, shower stools, etc.)

CONS

  • a bit of a walk from the town center
  • parking can be difficult in high season
