Monaco is considered a prestigious destination, and home to some of the world’s most celebrated events including the Formula One Grand Prix and the Monaco Yacht Show.
The best of its project by far, the Monaco shipyards is said to have delivered one of their most beautiful creations with the presentation of its stunning 45-million-euro refurbishment of the Fairmont Monte Carlo hotel.

It might come as a big surprise but some guests at Fairmont Monte Carlo actually pay to upgrade to a room overlooking a road. But then again it’s not just any old road, it’s the hairpin from the F1 circuit. Guests can sit on their balconies while watching luxury marques or automobiles weaving in and out of the hairpin road. They get to enjoy this privilege right in the privacy of their room or balcony. So smooth. They also get to enjoy awesome views from their room that is immaculately clean, even the public areas are noticeably neat. The view from the terrace pool is also equally stunning. Even in the month of February guests are still able to sit up and enjoy the pool. Rooms are in excellent conditions although some can do an upgrade. Turndown service is also provided. Fairmont Monte Carlo Hotel is perfect for both business travelers, family and leisure travelers.
