I am very happy I chose this property for our Christmas stay in Montenegro. It was so great, we stayed an extra night. The hotel has lovely little touches..the design is great - stylish and cosy. Staff is really on point about service. Very meticulous with details. We highly recommend their restaurant for dinner. The jams at breakfast are fantastic!... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and had a great time. Our first impression was good--we drove in, my husband hopped out to find the hotel, and then a staff member came out to guide us to the parking lot (outside the city walls) and walk us and our luggage from there to the hotel. Everyone was very friendly and... More

My girlfriend brought me here for a surprise 21st in September. We did struggle to find it a bit but that was our fault. When we arrived at the hotel all the staff were warm and friendly and this continued through our whole trip. Our room was beautifully decorated with a king size bed and stylish bathroom. For one evening... More

Could not recommend this hotel enough to visitors considering a stay here. It is a beautiful small, boutique hotel right in the centre of Kotor's old town. A wonderful location to explore from. The service was fantastic - some of the best I have had in my travels. The hotel Manager, Ranko made the stay such a special one for... More

Great little Boutique hotel in the heart of old town Kotor. Small but tasteful, rooms were great and staff were just amazingly friendly. No cars in the old town and great just to explore this UNESCO world heritage site. All restaurants within 10 minute walk. Very easy to the old fort but a bit of a climb.

This is a very small (9 room) hotel in the old, walled village of Kotor. Very nicely located in a quiet spot away from louder parts of village. Given age of building (couple of hundred years?) the rooms are small -- but clean, nice bedding, modern and efficient bathrooms and well laid out. We had a suite and a regular... More

We stayed at the hotel 3 nights in August, it was a great experience, the staff was very helpful, design is beautiful, bathrooms are a bit small. After the second night we had to change room and we got the suite on the top but preferred the first room on 1st floor. Breakfast a la carte is a great idea,... More

My husband and I stayed four nights over New Years. The first night at the hotel was a bit shaky because of lack of heat. I think this was because the absolutely wonderful manager was away. Once he returned everything was perfect. He had extensive experience in the tourism and cruise industry before retuning to the Balkans. The breakfasts were... More
