About Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo
Ideally situated in the Carré d'Or, within walking distance of the Casino, Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The sumptuous Belle Epoque property was built in 1889. It was fully renovated in 2004 by famous French designer Jacques Garcia, who transformed it into a palace of 126 rooms and suites with a Mediterranean charm in keeping with its era, combining glamour, sophistication and sensoriality.

Three restaurants, inspired by Joël Robuchon and run by Christophe Cussac, offer a unique and varied culinary experience for the discerning palate. With two Michelin stars, "Restaurant Joël Robuchon Monte-Carlo" specializes in refined dishes with Mediterranean flavours. "Yoshi", Joël Robuchon's only Japanese restaurant in the world, has one Michelin star and offers traditional Japanese cuisine in a bold and contemporary setting designed by Didier Gomez. Finally, the hotel's third restaurant "Odyssey" unveils its charming setting by the pool, with an Haute Couture décor designed by Karl Lagerfeld, and a menu inspired by the Mediterranean that celebrates fresh seasonal produce and light cuisine.

In collaboration with the House of Givenchy, the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has opened the Spa Metropole by Givenchy in April 2017. Designed by architect Didier Gomez and beautifully integrated into this luxury hotel, the Spa Metropole by Givenchy embodies the same philosophy shared in the House's venues: exceptional location, luxurious spaces, sophisticated care treatments, and absolute pleasure and well-being.
