Let's talk parking. This hotel is in the old town, so if you are driving, parking is an issue. Park at the lot near the school. Google Maps will get you there. The hotel did subtract the cost of parking from the bill. The apartments around there look a little sketchy, but it is okay. Walk around the school to... More

A friend had suggested the rooftop terrace restaurant and we were excited to try it. The restaurant offered a large menu of local fish and meat dishes along with typical international dishes. I opted for the black fettuccine with shrimp while my boyfriend had lamb. Unfortunately, the pasta was cold and hard, and was way too saucy with rubber tasting... More

Dear Laura, Thank you for taking time to share your opinion with other travellers. Honestly we are surpised that your food was cold because we serve it immediately after preparation but we will pay attention in future so that would never happen. Hope to welcome you again at our hotel and restaurant. Best regards, Hotel Hippocampus Management More

Only rooftop terrace in the city with a killer view of the surrounding mountains. This would be worth it on its own. The place is spotless. The sleek decor is very much in harmony with the stone walls of the old building. My room was a little dark but the city is medieval so the buildings are close together and... More

This hotel is highly rated by its visitors and we understand why. We stayed three nights in June and it was lovely. Large spacious & stylish room, air-conditioned with a comfortable bed. Huge wet room shower with replenished complimentary toiletries. It is tricky to find - mainly because the maze of streets in the Stari Grad (Old Town) don't have... More

Only 10 rooms.Greeting from staff perfect.Excellent breakfast.Comfortable beds.Very good position in the heart of the old town.Overall first class but lacking some minor comforts,no drawer space,no tissues,open bathroom giving no privacy. Frosted glass would solve..Toilet roll not replaced two consecutive days.Good seating area but no coffee table.
