Columbus Monte-Carlo, an authentic figure in the Monegasque art of living

Known worldwide as a temple of luxury and business, the second smallest independent state in the world also has a recent history closely linked to the world of motor racing.
The same goes for the Hotel Columbus Monte-Carlo, which owes its creation to the former Formula 1 driver, David Coulthard.
The idea of the latter, by buying in 2001 the 3-star hotel located on the site of the future Columbus, is then to make it the first “art of living hotel” in Monaco.
The concept takes shape and 20 years later, the establishment has become more than just a hotel.
The ultimate lifestyle boutique hotel
Its location sets it apart from all the other hotels in the Monegasque city, most of which have taken up residence in the city's most famous district, Monte-Carlo.
The Columbus Monte-Carlo, contrary to what its name suggests, is actually located in the heart of the most residential area of the Principality, Fontvieille.
The place is very popular with connoisseurs and lovers of local culture, and therefore represents a chic and immersive alternative to its visitors.
The geographical location of the Columbus Monte-Carlo alone is therefore enough to give it a unique and authentic character, which stands out with the rest of the Monegasque hotel world.
The advantageous position of the establishment, which the presence near the Princess Grace Rose Garden does not come to serve, quite the contrary, is not the only asset of the hotel.
The concept on which it is based is another.
The spirit of the hotel illustrates the modern local lifestyle, where glamor meets elegance and relaxation.
The idea is to make it a place of vacation and relaxation, in which visitors can also immerse themselves in the art of living in Monaco.
A complete offer
The Columbus Monte-Carlo, which wishes to welcome a wide range of visitors within its walls, does not skimp on its offer.
Everything is done there so that everyone feels at home or almost.
Like last year, the establishment will open its Kids Club in July and August, a service that will allow parents to fully enjoy their stay in Monaco while being sure that their offspring will also have an unforgettable holiday.
The formulas are numerous and adapted to most occasions, whether it is a professional, romantic stay or between friends.
The Columbus Monte-Carlo even offers to live the weekend of the Monaco Grand Prix in a calm and privileged environment, in which many actors of the race have their habits.
A way of remembering that its history is linked like no other hotel in the world of Formula 1.
