Everything about this landmark palace screams over-the-top decadence, from its three-Michelin-starred restaurant to one of the world’s largest wine cellars. The sculpted Belle Epoque façade sets the scene for interiors of marbled colonnades and crystal chandeliers, while guest rooms feature Empire-style mahogany furniture and marble bathrooms. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the hotel is a magnet for the world’s glitterati. Read expert review From £381per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com

Port Palace hotel, Monaco, France

Port Palace

Monte Carlo, Monaco

8Telegraph expert rating

A luxury hotel in Monaco for people who’ve had enough of the chandelier 'n' brocade brigade. Here you get modern, stripped-back luxury. Behind its sleek façade of blue glass and stainless steel, the Port Palace lobby is cool, light and white and enlivened by mega floral compositions and a warm welcome. In conceiving this hotel, someone clever has studied the question of luxury hotels, kept what was needed, chucked out what wasn’t – and disposed the result with deft contemporary taste.

Overlooking the sea (indeed, overstepping it: the hotel advances into the Med on pillars), this luxurious mastodon of a hotel is just a short distance from the Place du Casino in the centre of Monte Carlo. It's one of the biggest hotels in Europe with 602 rooms decked out in light blues, dark wood furniture inspired by the 1930s, plenty of space and comfort, but nothing to detract from the main attraction, which is the sea beyond the big windows.
