As promised, I am resuming the travel section of my blog with a bunch (and when I say a bunch, I mean at least 20) of photos of the beautiful Hotel Novotel we stayed in last year while travelling in Monte-Carlo, Monaco. Well, it was travelling for yours truly but it was mostly work for my Darling.

Aside from my not-so-good photo-taking skills, I am always worried about blurry pictures so I ended up taking at least 100 photos of our hotel … just in case!

For me, the main difference between Hotel Novotel and Hotel Hermitage, which we stayed in the previous year, was that the former offered FREE Wi-Fi in every room. Yes, that’s definitely one of our must-have criterion when choosing any hotel so it was great that Novotel provided me with free internet to happily post away pictures on Instagram (which I actually did not do much of LOL), check my FB and of course reply work emails, if any during my absence.

Location wise however, Hotel Hermitage definitely boasted a better site compared to Hotel Novotel simply because B and his colleague Nathan, had to walk a longer distance from the latter to reach the Grimaldi Forum where the SPORTEL 2013 conference was being held for the next few days.

Other than that, we truly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Novotel. Our room was spacious and fully-equipped with everything we needed including a superb bathtub for me to luxuriate in every day … and night.

Housekeeping was timely every morning and the breakfast buffet was reasonably priced too at €10 per person; offering a wide variety of delicious breakfast delights. Coffee was readily available in our room, which was great and I did enjoy watching several foreign programmes on TV. My only complaint would probably be that my mattress was a bit lumpy and felt worn-out.

|Expensive chocs and drinks!|
The location of a nearby train station was a bonus, with several shops inside and within the vicinity for us to get snacks and drinks when needed.

After checking in to our hotel room, snapping away loads of photos and resting for an hour or so; B and I met up with Nathan and we made the fairly long but scenic walk toward Grimaldi Forum to get the guys registered for the SPORTEL 2013 convention, which would start the following day.
Apparently, I was the only one interested in taking photos so the guys walked ahead of me while I stopped at every few corners, just for a snap! And on that note, I will end my travel post here for now. I will continue sharing photos of our scenic walk in my next travel post so wait for it!
