10/10 Exceptional

Expectations exceeded
Everything from when we walked in to when we left was wonderful. Front desk staff is fantastic, always ready to offer suggestions on where to go and what to see. The breakfast was great, fresh corn muffins, homemade jams, crapes and eggs made to order any way you want them. Coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. I was really surprised. Rooms are nice and air conditioned. Location is great, right in the centre of old town Kotor. They also have a rooftop restaurant, great place to sit after a long day and have a snack/drink. I have nothing but wonderful things about this location. Thank you!

Wonderful hotel!
We enjoyed our one-night stay with our family in 2 rooms. Wonderful breakfast and drinks on roof. Very helpful staff with reservations for dinner and driver to airport. If back in Kotor old town, will definitely come back and recommend to friends.

8/10 Very Good

Well designed and interesting property within an excellent location in the old town. Excellent, friendly service from all the staff. Disappointed that the roof terrace was not open as was part of the reason for choosing the hotel. It was even advertised in the lobby of the hotel. But, wonderful that a pick up, free of charge, was offered from Tivat airport

Awesome hotel in the middle of old town!
Awesome suite with 2 bathrooms! Reception staff super friendly and knowledgeable about Kotor and all the sights. Hotel location in the middle of old town was one reason we selected this hotel and even though parking (like all hotels in old town) is outside of city walls it was not terribly difficult walking the 5-10 mins to the hotel. We love the hotel so much that we’ve decided to book a 2nd night.

Most Delicious Breakfast in a Hotel in Kotor
Amazing hotel with incredible staff trying their best to make their customers happy. Special thank and appreciation to Mr. Ranco who was serving me breakfast every morning. So hospitable, friendly, and a main reason to make my day starts in a good way. The breakfast he was serving was so fresh, trying to let me try different local dishes every morning. The location of the hotel is amazing in the center of the old city. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Kotor.

Excellent small boutique Hotel in Kotor
What a gem!! I was very surprised of this small hotel in the middle of the Old Town in Kotor. Yes, it was a bit tricky to find, but what a place! Absolutely excellent service, regardless of the small size of the hotel. They only have 10-12 rooms, but their service was outstanding and the breakfast delicious. Rooms very decorated in both modern and old style, and very attractive. Beds were comfortable and the TV had too many channels to even be able to watch a small portion of. Internet was a bit unstable, but worked mostly ok. All around the place there are shops, restaurants, cultural events, and so on. You are truly in the midst of everything. There is no parking or cars allowed inside the Old Town, so you need to find a parking space outside (which could be tricky and expensive). I stay around 150 hotel nights every year, and this is right in the top ten of those! Highly recommended.
