The history of the Metropole hotel Monte-Carlo began in 1886 when the “Monte-Carlo Company Ltd” built the Metropole Palace on an ancient property of the Pope Léon XIII.
In 2004, the Metropole Palace became the Metropole Monaco, blending the past splendor with a new concept. In 2010, the hotel was rewarded the Best Hotel of the World by the iconic Leading Hotels of the World.
This 5 star property is an attractive destination for who seeks for a certain art of living. It echoes to the luxury and warmness of the beautiful Mediterranean Houses, combined with a very customized service. For high-end comfort, some contemporary touches integrate the timeless decor. Like the interior designer Jacques Garcia’s description : “Regardless of where you are in the hotel, anyone from anywhere, can feel at home, relax and read, or just meet friends. That is the fundamental concept of what has been created : a place where rock stars can comfortably mix with royalty.”
