This was my second stay at the Adagio Palais Josephine in Beau Soleil, and I was again delighted by the very helpful attitude of the staff. There is no doubt this is an older property and is getting a little long in the tooth as far as the décor and amenities concerned, but the friendliness and very 'can do' attitude of the staff at the front desk and in the breakfast room completely balance out the other aspects. In addition, I understand that from January of next year (2019), the hotel owners are embarking on a staged renovation of the facilities. To everyone who is planning to come here, please remember the Palais Josephine clearly calls itself an "Aparathotel", and makes no effort to emulate a 4-star hotel as far as facilities and room service are concerned. This is a hotel where a great deal of the effort has to come from the guests. I was again in a spacious studio room with a "Murphy bed". i.e., a double bed than can fold up into the wall to give more space for other activities during a holiday stay, such as a family might require. The bed was quite comfortable, and I had no problem at all sleeping on it. There was also a sofa-bed, which was a small two-seater sofa that could unfold to make a decent-sized single bed. The room is equipped with a good-sized fridge, a multi-purpose oven/microwave, a 4-plate electric range and a dishwasher. The kitchenette was fully equipped with all pots, pans, cutlery, glasses and crockery, so for the couple or family looking for a self-catering holiday where breakfast is provided, this is ideal. The policy regarding housekeeping is quite clear, so I really don't understand some of the negative comments I've seen on TripAdvisor regarding this. If guests are staying for over 7 nights, the towels are changed daily and all the rubbish is removed on a daily basis. For stays of less than this, there is a small charge for daily "towels and trash", and this service needs to be requested. This is clearly stated in the hotel information in both French and English. A full bedlinen change is not automatic, and is provided on request for a reasonable charge. Otherwise, it's like one is in their own apartment ... hence the name Aparthotel ... OK?!! As for amenities, the breakfast buffet in a bright, spacious room is ample and stocks of all food and fruit are constantly replenished: there are no cooked dishes other than boiled eggs, but there is a good range of breads, pastries, cheeses, yoghurts and so on. There is also a swimming pool for those who have the time (or energy) to enjoy it. Laundry and a dry cleaning services are available on weekdays, and are very reasonably priced. There is also a self-service area for washing and drying clothes: the machines work on tokens available at the front desk. There is good Wi-Fi available with moreover a free option, and the bandwidth is not bad at all. For 12 Euros a week, a faster Wi-Fi is available: this compares very favourably to the 12 euros a day quite often found in European hotels. The hotel is at the corner of a couple of very narrow streets and is perched up on the hillside above Monaco. It is a twisty-turn-y 15-min walk down to the seafront, and a brisk cardiovascular exercise to climb all the way back up! Pick up and drop-off by taxi must therefore be accomplished quickly because the streets are one-way. The narrow streets around the hotel are well-provided with a variety of bars and restaurants, but the downside is that they can be a little noisy at night. However, the double glazing I found to be adequate to keep the noise down to an acceptable level. There are good and well-stocked convenience stores and an excellent bakery very near the hotel, for stocking up the fridge and cupboards for the self-catering holidaying couple or family. In conclusion, the Adagio Palais Josephine is not a luxury hotel, so don't expect it to be one. It is a serviced apartment, so guests are very much left to fend for themselves as if they were in their own homes, unless the extra services are requested and paid for. The staff are wonderfully helpful, very friendly and multilingual. I was staying there on business, but I would not hesitate to come here for an extended holiday stay, and I think it would be ideal for a couple or a family who want a reasonably-priced self catering base for a holiday in the Monaco area. I am looking forward to seeing the renovations that will have been done when I return next April, as I go to Monaco every April for a major antiaging congress, and I'll definitely be trying to book at the Palais Josephine.

I’m really confused about this apart-Hotel. I stayed here 7 nights and not once, not a single time I got a cleaning. I didn’t know about their policy but after 6 nights clearly a small cleaning wouldn’t hurt. The response comments from the Hotel on trip advisor state that a stay longer than three days gets a cleaning, well this does not happen. The room is old, needs a major renovation and I really believe it’s overpriced for what it is, what gives it this price is the proximity to Monaco. There is also a strange vinegar/product smell that is used by the housekeepers in the hallways. What saves the one star is the kindness of one of the staff members (don’t know her name) I would rather pay for a hotel that does my room everyday....

It’s my second time. First time we booked an appartement for 5 people with 2 rooms and was better but this time, we book an appartement for 4 people with one room. Our appartement was in the market side and noises started at 4 in the morning. Imposible to sleep from this time because it’s very bad isolated. We are not coming anymore. Phone in the room didn’t work, beds in the living were very tiny and we had in an appartement for 4-5 people a wardrobe of less than 1 m.

Not having booked this hotel myself I did not have high expectations. The rooms are extremely noisy and an odd smell. All aspects are out dated. Location is fairly good to casino area and bus transport. I wouldn't stay in this hotel again however the staff were nice

The Hotel is OK , but nothing more... we stayed for 6 days... hotel reception staff where very nice.. and the room it self was ok.. big enough space for 2 ad and 2 children... but There was no cleaning for 6 days.... when we booked the room, IT said so with smal prints. We didnt read that ( of course). And we thought this was qiut «strange» at a hotell... it got very dirty... there was no changing of the towels either.... first Hotel in the world we have Been to wich has this practice... The price was OK also... and the Hotel has a good «location» with the city of monaco.. 5 min walk to the casino... that was very good..

A very good apart hotel with very comfortable facilities. Fantastic to explore Monaco. Staff was extremely friendly and hotel clean. The location is fabulous, next to a market and steps away from Monaco Casino. Some pieces of furniture could use a refresh though.

-Difficult for local taxicabs to find. -Reasonably priced, especially for families traveling on a budget. If you can't afford the deluxe prices of Monaco, this is a great option. -Basic accommodations in compact apartment-style residence with kitchenettes. -Due to being just outside the city, you will need to traverse many steps and city streets. -A good budget option for larger families instead of paying the premium to stay in the priciest of hotels in Monte Carlo. -Kitchenette is really too small to do anything with.

Even if the price was not so high the prestation were really bad even if the staff was nice. the room was ugly the bed uncomfortable. The bathroom was ugly. The hotel was depressing, breakfast was ok, for the same price a colleague of mine managed to find a much better hotel in Monaco...

Excellent team, good location near Monaco center with a great view on Monaco and Beausoleil. Very nice team with a friendly answers to every question. The apartment was ok with a small kitchen and a big surface. Would be back again.

On the + side: Great location. Good customer service. On the -ve side: not as good as it looks in the photos. Very poor housekeeping service. I stayed there for 5 days and did not get ANY housekeeping even though I asked for it. The towels were not changed for 5 days! For the high price I payed, I expected much more.
