Just had four nights at the Napoleon Hotel in Menton, South of France. Such a wonderful hotel, the staff are the friendliest I have come across, so helpful and kind, they could not do enough to make our stay perfect. The hotel is situated in the perfect spot, a short walk from the town, exotic gardens and the train station... More

Nice hotel with sea views, but across a park and parking lot. Very small snack menu but several restaurants in easy walking distance. Breakfast is a bit pricey (14Euros) for area. Better to walk for breakfast at half the price. Room is not large but well arranged. Balcony is a little snug with small table, 2 chairs and 2 beach... More

This was our fourth stay at the Napoleon, and it was as good as ever. We stayed for three nights in June, in a Sea View (Queen Bed) room. The room is spacious, with a good sized balcony. The front desk staff are polite and helpful and the hotel has a good atmosphere. We didn't take breakfast at the hotel,... More

Very nice four star hotel, beautifully refurbished, with modern and comfortable room, either facing the mountain to the back (make sure to have a high floor to enjoy light and view) or sea side, with outstanding views of old Menton to the right but also a bit of noise from the street in front. Either room, the place is absolutely... More

We used bus number 99 to Nice Ville Station €6 and then the train to Menton Garavan€4.50 (senior rate). Hotel is an easy 8 minute walk from the station.... More

The Hotel Napoleon in Menton is a tidy and hip little hotel. We stayed here as we were going to Mirazur for dinner for our anniversary. The staff arranged for two glasses of champagne for us at the restaurant which was a lovely gesture. We had a sea view room which was nice and comfortable, I would recommend trying for... More

I stayed here as part of a tour of gardens on the Riviera. My room was spotless with great views to the new port in Menton in front and to the old town to my right.

We stayed in two rooms in late April prior to going on a cruise from Monaco. Hotel located away from main shopping area but right across the road from a good range of beach-side restaurants.

We stayed at the Napoleon for 5 nights during a motoring holiday to the south of France. We paid extra for one of the 10 or so parking spaces available at the hotel.
