The rooms are clean and well checked for the upkeep in the right hours without disturbing the client. Being a travel agent myself, I adored... More

This is a great little hotel just outside Podgorica. Not walking distance in to the city, but great location if you have a car. Stayed there for two nights, the staff are really helpful and arranged taxi collection from the airport.

The hotel is located little bit outside the city center in purpose to benefit the quiet environment, free parking, and easy access to main road leading to the seaside (just 50 min of drive). You have been a wonderful guest. Thank you! More

Hotel is on the main road,easy to find. Not close to the center but by car it's not problem. Hotel is very nice, rooms also, completely new 2nd floor. Stuff polite. The only thing is that breakfast could be bit better, more rich.

Thank you for all your praise, and also for the critic. It might be that you have been too early on the breakfast (before 7), or we had an honest mistake of not explaining that our guest along buffet are free to order meal by wish. We apologize for the omission. Won't happen again. More

The night we arrived there was no power for a few hours. But the staff was welcoming and able to suggest a wonderful place to get Montenegrin food. They were also happy to answer our questions about the history of Montenegro. The room itself smelt as if it had not long been refurbished and was very clean and comfortable. However,... More

We stayed here without making a reservation after seeing a billboard as we drove into Podgorica. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price. The reception staff were very helpful, the breakfast room staff were unobtrusive but available for assistance and the general demeanour was very homely. The room was excellent although I couldn't work out how... More
