“Clean, not far from sea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We booked apartment on the ground floor with access to the garden. Normal size room, there is a kitchenette. Cleaning every day. The beds are comfortable. Walk to the sea for 5-7 minutes, go back up the hill. Very difficult to find, specify in advance the location of the owners.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed here for five nights. Everything was clean and spotless. The wireless internet did not really work, which was quite annoying.

The place is very difficult to find, there are several streets with the same name (or the same street branches out) so check the coordinates before trying to find the place. It's not very nice to walk up and down steep hills in the Montenegro heat.

The pillows in the beds were very bad quality and the bath towels were very small (~80x80cm).

No seats inside the room (double room), only beds.

All-in-all an ok place to stay if you want to stay in Herceg Novi.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Two friends and I recently stayed at Apartments Bovan. We stayed in a clean and tidy triple room with single beds, which had a good size bathroom, a good shower and a front area with a table and chairs.

The owner, Milenko, is fantastic - when we arrived he showed us around then gave us loads of great info about how to get to the beach and the Old Town. WiFi was free and perfectly fast enough for browsing, checking emails etc. At all other times he was friendly and approachable, and made our brief stay a happy one.

It's about 3-400m to the beach - which isn't amazing but not bad - and probably around a kilometre walk to the Old Town, which is gorgeous and far less commercialised than the Old Towns in both Dubrovnik and Kotor. There aren't many British tourists around - they're mainly Serbian or Russian I think - but I think that's likely to change as Kotor becomes more popular and the area gets explored more by people from the UK.

It's quite difficult to find but the owner has recently put a large sign on top of the building which is visible from the road - if you're looking for it! The trick is not to turn right up the hill when you think you should, but to continue on along the main road and then go up the steps on the right opposite the road that leads down to the beach. A short while up the steps, come off them to the right into a small car park and head across this - the apartments are in front of you.

The ratings I've given are all relative - this isn't a 5* place, but for the price it's an absolute steal. The area seems a bit rundown but never felt unsafe, and the owners have made a huge effort with the apartment to make it look nice, with loads of plants and flowers in the outside areas. Overall, fully recommended.

We stayed at apartments Bovan in July 2012 and i would recommend it to anyone who picks Herceg Novi for vacation. The room we stayed at was new cosy and clean and all in all a great value for money. I really want to thank the owner Milenko and his family for the hospitality and for doing all in their power to make our stay in Herceg Novi pleasant and memorable. Pozdrav iz Grcke.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Newly refurbished apartments, including all mod cons. The Bovans are a very pleasant family who look after their guests well. Montenegro has gone up in price for everything in the last 2 years but the apartments offer good value. My room did not have a sea view but most do.

Room Tip: Ask for room at front.
