I wouldn't give this a Five for luxurious rooms or a lavish breakfast. Rooms are pretty tired though beds were fine. Make sure you switch on the hot water (switch outside bathroom) in good time for a shower. Breakfast pretty simple - coffee, bread, omelette - served with a smile. View from hotel is of wasteland and block of flats... More

Overall good value for your money, The price was 40 euro for a room, per night including breakfast. You can walk to the center of town, but it's a bit far so you better take a taxi which only costs 1.20 euro. The room was clean, it includes AC and TV. The 24hr reception saved us because our arrival to... More

An average hotel not an Ideal one. Some of the front desk guys are sometimes rude and they keep your passport until your check-out (they are saying that they have to register your stay to the police, or something like that) - even if beeing a driver you'll need your passport (not saying that it's illegal to keep your passport)....

Hotel Ideal is OK, not ideal. Its location is a little out of the main town - it would be a fairly unpleasant walk on the main road (but then, Podgorica is not a very pleasant place). Taxis are only 1.50 Euros. The front of the hotel looks over wasteland - but at least its quiet! Breakfast was good (not... More

This hotel is located about 1.5 km from town and 1km from the bus station. Rooms are simply furnished with private shower/toilet. The front desk guys are helpful and friendly. The breakfast included is good and they packed sandwiches for us when we had an early departure. I spent 2 nights there and thought it was fine. It is considered... More

I wasn't quite sure what to expect at this hotel. I travelled to Podgorica to see England play Montenegro. I spoke to some people who had travelled from England and had stayed in some 'interesting' hotels in Podgorica! I am happy to say that I think we stayed in one of the better hotels in the city. The rooms were... More

It's a great place to stay because of the value, accommodating staff and location. For 40euros, we got double bed and breakfast. My husband and I came there around 2am and the reception greeted us pleasantly. It's a 2-star hotel but it exceeded our expectation. They have a nice room and great breakfast (sausages, cheese,bread and coffee..varieties listed on their... More

This hotel is ideal. I am very used to budget places but this was of a higher standard than I am used to. The staff were very helpful and friendly (though sometimes in Montenegro that is hard to tell as superficially they seem a bit sullen). The breakfast was very decent and included in the price. The location is a... More

The good news is that this really is a nice little hotel...simple but nice looking rooms, helpful staff, etc. Unfortunately you have to get past a couple of negatives to get to the positive. First of all it is situated on a nice little street overlooking a big depressing looking vacant field so it takes a moment to realize what... More

I needed somewhere just for one night as I flew out of Podgorica airport and this place was fantastic. It was one of the cheapest places around at EUR30 for a single room and exactly what I was after. It's about a 15 minute walk into the city and in a very quiet area. The guy who greeted me at...
