The hotel is located in the old town of Kotor but away from noise and crowd. The rooms are spacious although not very bright due to its location. The breakfast was excellent and included in the price of the room. The personnel was very kind and helpful. Perfect for one or two day stay.

We had a fabulous stay at the Hippocampus Hotel last month. We couldn't fault the service or hotel from the moment we walked through the door. The reception team were courteous and respectful as were the dinner and breakfast teams. The breakfast was terrific and nothing we requested was a problem. Our room was a corner suite with an excellent... More

We got room 103. That's not the best room if you like a peaceful night. The room is facing out towards a busy street with pubs and restaurants near by. The room is not sound proof. Bring ear buds. We also laughed a lot about the bathroom. It literally was a fish tank. Not much privacy behind glass walls. There... More

Dear Mats, As you noticed music from local bars is an issue, but it is for all hotels in The Old Town especially during the Carnival week (which starts at the end of July and it lasts 7 days). We offer earplugs to our guests but we will do all the best to improve the quality of soundproof in future.... More

Found their rooftop terrace by chance and had a really cosy dinner with a group of friends. Good food and amazing views, but the best was the excellent service and the helpful attitude from the waiter! Don't miss the tuna carpaccio, which just melted in the mouth!

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.

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
