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.

Truthful Review

Service staff were friendly, attentive and responsive. Breakfast was good and worth every single cent. However, the bathroom was poorly designed. You will need to be approximately 1.7m (height) in order to check yourself in the mirror. Also, the bathroom will be flooded after every shower, despite the fact that we took extra care in minimizing water splashing. A set of shower curtain would greatly help to reduce the flooding issue. Noise complaints were valid as hotel was located right in the heart of old town. We had to use ear plugs to get to sleep.

Style over Substance

This boutique hotel came highly rated in onlinne reviews, and appeared as a started choice in the Lonely Planet guide. Unfortunately it was a very disappointing experience, primarily, but not exclusively, due to the noise of a nearby bar which pumps out music so loudly until midnight that it's impossible to sleep. Apparantly it's 'the' place to be, but its presence andusic licence is so at odds with its medieval surrounds that it's in the realms of the ridiculous. On asking the front desk about the possibility of being moved to another room, we received a jaded and disinterested response informing us that the problem is the same in every room, the bar has a licence until 12am and that the police could be called after that. Oh, and they had some earplugs if we wanted them. We stayed 3 nights and this was a major problem each night. To sell bookings to customers without informing them of this major issue is disingenous to put it mildly. Whilst the hotel and rooms do look very nice in part, there were a number of issues that were completely unacceptable for a hotel of this apparent standard. Two sets of electrical sockets were hanging out of the wall. Electrical wires were sticking out of another point outside the room. The bedsheets were stained on places. One of the bedside tables marble tabletops became loose and we were told to place the lamp in the middle to balance it. It would break a foot if it toppled. The bathroom door wasn't aligned. The toilet wasn't private

Stylishly put together in a old stone building in the heart of the old town...large room, great bed and very good shower However, its a classic example of designers not thinking of practicalities for people actually staying...poor lighting and strangely a toilet room with completely see through glass.Were married but neither of us want to watch each other on the toilet Overral a lovely stay though
