Inside F1 legend David Coulthard’s former Monte Carlo hotel which he sold for £30m and where guests arrive by helicopter

BACK in his heyday, F1 legend David Coulthard fancied himself as a hotelier. He opened the amazing Columbus hotel in Monte Carlo, after buying a former three-star accommodation and renovating it. In 2010, The Scottish driver sold the Columbus for £30million to the same hotel group who own Hilton Park Lane in London and the Fairmont Hotel in Monaco. In 2001, Coulthard – already enamoured by living in Monaco – bought a standard three-star hotel with the idea of turning it into a luxury place to stay. Over the years, guests have included Princess Stephanie of Monaco, the Beckhams, and Naomi Campbell. As you can expect, staying at the Columbus will set you back.
