The two of us were provided with a rather large apartment over two floors that had three bedrooms and two bathrooms and its own balcony (see photos) for 60 euros as a "walk in". Accommodation in Ulcinj is plentiful but when we saw this place perched on the top of the cliff with uninterrupted views over the ocean and the bay we had to try it.
The two level apartment had great views from all rooms (even the bathroom) and we liked the private balcony.
As previously mentioned in other reviews this hotel was not easy to reach by car. Drive through the town and head for the bay as far as you can go all the way down a one way street that has stalls on both sides of the street. When you hit the beach itself, turn right and follow the bay all the way to the end where you can get a park most of the time. It is also easy to turn around at the end in order to get out of town. This road back is one way and winds all the way back up the hill into town with great view looking back onto the bay and hotel. When you find a parking spot near the bottom of the old city wall it is only a few steps up to the top of the wall and your hotel. Do not try and carry up large bags, just pack for one night...
Our accommodation was starting to look a bit tired but was clean and had all basic requirements. The bed (we had a few to pick from) was good for a nights sleep and we had air-conditioning on both levels. Because we stayed on a Saturday night however, the nightclub noise travelled over the water for a mile and we had to end up closing the windows and put the airco on during the night.
During the day we had engaged the chef (our son is also a chef) and decided to eat at the hotel that evening. Because Montenegro is so cheap as a destination (we love the 2.85 euro one litre bottles of local red wine from most supermarkets!) we decided to put some further money into the economy. Our three course meal with wine was very well prepared and service of excellent quality. The total cost (incl. 2006 bottle of local Cabernet) was 65 euros, you can certainly eat much cheaper than this in Montenegro but not in such iconic location with a sunset between the ramparts to die for.
Try it, even if you only stay for one night as we did!
