We stayed at the Hotel Hippocampus for 2 nights with our 5 adult children in 3 rooms. We had a few problems when we arrived, but I must say that the hotel handled our issues with professionalism and courtesy. Things happen when traveling, but how hotels handle problems separate the good hotels from the great ones. This is a great... More

Everything was just perfect in our (me and my husband) three nights stay at Hotel Hippocampus. Hotel is located just in the heart of old town which gives a nice atmosphere. And everything one needs is just downstairs. Room was perfectly clean and nice, decoration was combination of history and modern equipment. Staff is very friendly and helpful. And the... More

We were fortunate to be able to find a room in this fabulous little hotel. It is nestled in a quiet back corner of Kotor. Everything is within a short walk and parking is accessible from a facility that is very near by saving guest from having to carry luggage long distances. The staff especially Igor, is some of the...

The reviews are spot on. It is not often I use the five point ranking. We drove in to Kotor and Mr Ranko promptly got us to the hotel with baggage. Car parking setup is great. Rooms are small but tastefully and thoughtfully designed, making best use of the heritage elements of the building. The bedding was first class, as... More

Very personal service, charming historical hotel. You get picked up by a golf baggy at the "old town of kotor", outer gate and you are driven thru the narrow alleys of this charming town. The hotel is as old as the town, more than 400 years. Still the rooms are very modern and beautifully designed. The restaurant serves great food.... More

We were picked up at the town gate (no roads to drive inside) and escorted to the hotel. On the way already the extremely helpful and... More

Excellent service, accommodations, and attention to detail. The staff was professional, courteous, considerate, and eager to assist. The location was outstanding and all the more special as it is within the fortifications and the olde town. The roof top terrace dining area had sublime views on the mountainside. The decor and furnishings in our suite were stylish and of absolute... More

Nice, cozy hotel with comfortable and modern rooms. Service is friendly and efficient. Breakfast on the rooftop is a pleasant way to start the day with views of the Old town. I also like the location. It is in the middle of the Old town but it is still quiet because it is far enough from most bars and restaurants
