Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco, is a sovereign city-state and microstate on the French Riviera. Bordered by France to the north, east and west, it is lapped by the Mediterranean Sea to the south. With an area of only 2.1 square kilometers it is the second smallest sovereign state in the world, after Vatican City. Monaco is one of the wealthiest cities in the world and home to many billionaires, athletes and celebrities. The luxury lifestyle and high profile events also make Monaco a popular tourist destination. Being such a small city the number of hotels is naturally limited and we struggled to create a full Top 10 best hotels in Monaco. The quality quickly drops from world class to quite average so we reduced our top 10 to the 7 best places to stay in Monaco. And one of them is technically not even in Monaco but just across the border in France.
