My family and I stayed in a 2-room apartment for 5 nights (honestly, seemed too much for the Boka!) The location in the old part of Kotor is nice to explore the town. Not far from the beach (about 10 min), close to the supermarket and the bus station. Easy to get, just ask the driver to stop at Vrata od Gurdic (The South Gate) and you're there in a couple of minutes The facilities are good: the a/c works well, beds and pillows are comfortable, there is a kitchen equipped with a cooker, a microwave and a fridge; glasses, cups, etc are provided. Rooms are clean, towels are changed daily. The price is very reasonable for what you get. The owner (a nice lady) and her daughter who actually welcomed us when we arrived both speak good English.
What I disliked about my stay is that the kitchen (rather dark if your apartment is the lower one) is located on the stairs - no privacy! The front door is often opened (there is a little room for the staff below), so you don't feel quite comfortable sitting and eating there. The terrace with a sea view is in another building and actually is occupied by the owner so we didn't feel free to use it. Finally, if you're a big person you can experience some difficulties opening the door of the shower as there's limited space. It can be noisy at night as there's a cafe nearby but noise and bad loud music played late in the evening is the problem of the whole town (what a shame for such a romantic place!)
All in all, I’d recommend this place for a short stay. The town of Kotor is a gem, it’s the best in the bay, but if you live there, other towns and villages don’t seem so interesting in comparison with it and for a beach holiday I’d prefer Sveti Stefan, not the Boka. Be sure to have a look at the bay from the old Kotor road – splendid views!
