Setting looks good, especially from the outside. Inside is different. Very high chairs makes it difficult for an average height person to sit in an ergonomically acceptable position. Wines are good, service is mediocre. Worst part is the food. Fish soup had too much tomato paste and salt in it, plus the fish pieces were as hard as leather. I couldn't eat it. Having several wonderful fish soups in Dalmatian coast recently, this was truely disappointing. My other course, tuna tartare was also disappointing. It was basically tuna pâté I did not dare to finish. Athmosphere was okay but having the worst dinner of our two weeks Dalmatian holiday here, probably won't be back here anytime soon.

The hotel is charming in the middle of Kotor city. The rooms are well decorated with AC. You need to walk with your luggages (someone from the hotel was supposed to help but nobody came). The breakfast is not very good. But the worst thing was that the hotel is surrounded by bars which have decided to put music outside ... looks like you are sleeping in a night club ! So a nice hotel if you have chosen not to get asleep before 2am in the morning !

This little hotel in Kotor's old town is wonderful! The hotel is quite small, but the rooms are clean, cozy, and in a nice tucked away corner of the Stari Grad (old town). The hotel is owned and run by such friendly staff. They couldn't have been nicer in helping us organize our time there, with suggestions of what to do and information as we asked for it. Everyone was ready to help us in anyway possible. The gentleman who works the night-shift at the desk also will arrange a tour by car of the area. He took our group of two on a fantastic day trip through the mountains and neighboring towns and couldn't have given us a better experience.

The people who run this small hotel right in the center of the old town couldn't be nicer and more helpful. We had a charming room, comfortable bed with a table and chairs and cozy reading chair. Good breakfast included with a variety of foods and even an offer of eggs, more than your typical breakfast in the region. Loved staying in the old town of Kotor and while it can be noisy on a weekend with partying and music, the air con and ear plugs masked the revelries pretty well.

Stayed for 2 nights June 21st - 23rd. Great location. Beautiful inside with a lovely terrace where you can dine overlooking the square below as well as either eating inside the restaurant downstairs or outside. We don't usually eat where we stay at, if doing bed and breakfast. We did here and ate in both nights. Excellent food. We had room 7. It was enormous and beautifully decorated. The staff were first class. Really helpful, friendly and polite. The young lady on reception insisted on us being taken with our luggage back to the city entrance in the electric buggy rather than walk when leaving. What a great experience that was going through the narrow streets. A wonderful place and would liked to have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Choose room 7

We stayed here for 5 nights and were very impressed by both the position and quality of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast good.

Our only critisism was the noise level emanating from the bar in the main square which often went on well into the early hours of the morning. Had the noise been contained within the bar it wouldn't have been so bad, but with speakers blasting out into the square we found it difficult to get to sleep most nights!

We really enjoyed this hotel -- the room was large, brand new, and nicely decorated (though it was probably more to my mom's taste -- I'd describe it as "shabby chic" -- my bf still liked it). Like any hotel in the old town, you will have to walk a bit to the parking (free), but it was worth it. Definitely recommended!

Kotor itself was charming, though the entertainment here is of the standard "cute old town, shopping, and eating" variety. We definitely recommend the drive up the mountain toward Cetinje, gorgeous views!
