The Boutique Hotel Hippocampus is in an incredibly good position within the old town of Kotor. Delightfully quirky and comfy room. But......our room on the first floor looked directly across the narrow lane to a pub and we couldn't have windows open. The pub was only about 2 metres from our windows. Would hate to be there over a busy... More

A beutifully refurbished boutique hotel in the old city. The shower was to die for and the room was lovely. They also have a rooftop seating area which seems to be a well kept secret but it was lovely to sit out there having a drink, listening to the bells ring and looking out over the rooftops. My best hint... More

Advised to stay here by a friend, we found the Hippocampus to be conveniently located in the Old City in Kotor, not far from one of the gates and parking. The hotel has fewer than a dozen rooms, and each are decorated in a new, modern theme. Windows open out onto the charming old town streets below. Rooms offer cable... More

Really charming hotel in the old town. Very comfortable rooms with all amenities, wifi access in the rooms and delicious breakfast with home made jams and local honey. But above all the service was very friendly and professional. Strongly recommend a stay here.

It was our first visit to Montenegro, Kotor is a charming old town...one of the nicest one we ever visited... Hotel is nicely done, wonderful architecture work. Rooms, furniture, china, linens top quality.... Internet was not working during our stay, was back only the last hour.... Breakfast had a good menu choice. Hotel was too pricey.

Such a well laid out and top of the range boutique hotel, centrally located in the old town The staff were amazing, even got me a birthday cake as they found out it was my 30th while I was staying there But as the other reviews say, room 103 is to be avoided, there is a small bar across the...

This is a stylish hotel with good location in the old town. The service and the breakfast is excellent. However, there are two points to bring out : 1) the toilet in our room is with transparent glass, even within a couple, certain privacy will be good. The crew was kind to offer us another room but it's not as... More

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.
