Monaco’s Metropole voted among top 10 hotels

Monaco’s Metropole voted among top 10 hotels

By Stephanie Horsman - October 11, 2021

The Metropole Hotel has been awarded a spot in the top 10 hotels in France and Monaco by Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards for the fifth year in a row. The hotel also has the distinction of being the sole hotel in the Principality to receive the honour. 

“We are very proud of the renewed recognition of the readers of Condé Nast Traveler,” said the Metropole’s Managing Director Serge Ethuin. “This prestigious award is the result of the daily dedication of our collaborators to offer the highest level of hospitality to our guests who are increasingly looking for a tailor-made experience. They want to find exceptional locations and a genuine customer experience based on real human relationships. At the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, we are keen to offer this type of emotion, we know our guests personally and this explains why we have so many return guests.”

The hotel came in eighth place in the rankings earning an overall score of 98.31 out of 100 and received glowing accolades from the magazine, which declared that the Belle Epoque beauty has “a contemporary edge” with “excellent food” and a spa that is “top-notch”. The awards are the oldest and most prestigious acknowledgement of excellence in the travel industry.

Built in 1889 by Danish architect Hans-Georg Tersling on land that once belonged to Pope Leo XIII, the hotel boasts 125 guest rooms, 64 of them suites. It recently reopened in April 2021 after being closed for the first phase of renovations. 

Currently, there are three restaurants available – Yoshi, the only Japanese restaurant on the Côte d’Azur to be awarded a star since 2010, Odyssey – the charming Karl Lagerfeld designed poolside eatery, as well as the Lobby Bar, which serves delicious fare in a welcoming environment.  

Since its inception, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has attracted an elite, international clientele of aristocrats, celebrities, and captains of industry. It is rumoured the hotel was the inspiration for novelist Edith Wharton’s 1905 tome The House of Mirth.
