Palazzo Radimiri is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location but there were quite a few problems experienced.
Firstly, a few weeks after we made our booking, the hotel decided to put the prices up. Rather than honour the price we booked it at, the hotel said we could pay the new prices or get a refund on our deposit. I found this pretty bad service but after a few strongly worded emails back and forth, we managed to reach a compromise. It must be said that this hotel was already over-priced considering general prices in Montenegro.
Upon arrival, our rooms were not ready and there was a problem. We had booked a family room for 4 people but they decided to turn this room into a double room without informing us. Fortunately, the hotel was only half full so there were plenty of rooms to go around which they provided with no hassle.
One of the rooms we got was amazingly beautiful and the other was just bad. If you want to stay here, make sure you get the Glorioso room. It has a balcony with stunning views of the bay. The room itself is also very beautifuly done and comfortable.
The Civille room, on the other hand, is not good at all. There is only a tiny envelope of a window to the bay so no real view. The worst thing is that the bathroom smells VERY strongly like a sewer. It's so strong that the entire room smells of sewerage which was digusting. This aside, the bathroom is awful as well, you need to take a shower in almost complete darkness due to poor lighting and only a midget could actually stand up without banging their head on the roof. Very uncomfortable.
We had half board only because we were forced to (I'd much rather eat locally). Breakfasts were great - one of the biggest spreads of food I've seen. Dinners were not so great. They served nice soups but the main dishes and desserts were poor.
Service was variable. I got the feeling that they're still not sure what customers expect. This hotel is trying to be boutique and upmarket but really needs to get a few of the basics right first. It has potential and it's certainly a great location but it's too hit and miss.
