Great hotel inside the walled old city. Somewhat pricey, BUT great value. Big, beautiful, quiet, clean room. But what makes the hotel special is the staff -- all of them. So convenient to explore old Kotor, and to climb the mountain directly behind the walls. A real shame we could only spend one night.

Stayed here mid April for a couple of nights whilst travelling around the Montenegran Coast, , beautiful hotel tucked away behind the fortress walls of the old town. We had a suite which was out of this world, the bed was gigantic, the attention to detail was outstanding with the decoration and furnishings, oversized luxurious bathroom, two beautiful sash windows overlooking the cobbled square with views over Lake Kotor. The staff were very friendly, the bar/restaurant area was immaculate and the food was that which you would expect in a Michelin star restaurant in the UK for the price you would pay in a Pizza Hut!! I would definitely recommend this hotel. It's in a stunning location and there are plenty of market stalls and shops to have a browse in and you can walk across the road to the Bay where there are millions are pounds worth of stunning yachts and catamarans.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite overlooking the bay.

Little boutique hotel in the old town of Kotor. Location is perfect but can get a bit noisy during weekends and high summer. Very friendly staff, all eager to serve and assist you. Rooms vary in size but mine was huge. Free broadband and sat tv. Extra large and stylish bathroom. Beds are enormous and of highest quality. Spotlessly clean. Breakfast is good, mind you this is a small hotel, so don't expect gigantic buffets.
All in all, this is a little jewel that will please even the most demanding traveller. Top marks and a big thank you.

Friendly hotel in centre of Kotor old town. We stayed in large room with double bed on 1st floor with three children and they added three single beds. Great service and very accommodating. Good breakfast. Massage is provided by external lady and is not great. Beds and pillows super comfortable (and I sm fussy!!). Great stay for us.

This hotel with is location in the central plaza of Kotor fortress, is perfect to explore this UNESCO world heritage site.
The Junior suite i stay was very good a large room with a proper decoration and ambiance, have a balcony over the main square.

The hotel as a free parking places in a parking lot outside the walls (no cars can circulate inside the fortress), however this mean carry the luggage for 200m.

The breakfast could improve a lack of juices were notice.

You can't beat the location of this hotel in Kotor, right on the central square. The breakfast is very good (and I'm someone who cares about breakfast), and you can order eggs or omelettes. You can take your breakfast outside to the seating area on the main square and watch the town come to life. We chose a room in the lowest price category, which has a window on a side street rather than a view. Fine. My biggest complaint was that the room smelled somewhat of smoke, and smoke drifted up the stairwell from the lobby bar downstairs. But the best thing about this hotel is the staff, who really went out of their way. We were trying to find a rental car with automatic transmission, and they call agencies all over town for us until they tracked one down. When we left to catch a bus at 6am our last morning, they packed a breakfast to go, and upon requested even included some boiled eggs. We stayed here 4 nights and were sad to go. It's a great base from which to explore Montenegro.

I really enjoyed my stay at this wonderful hotel. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Kotor. The hotel provides free parking just outside of the city walls. The breakfast buffet is very good. The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious even by American standards. The toiletries provided are of high quality. I loved the massive shower head in the bathroom. I was not bothered by the outside noise as some reviewers have complained but maybe because some of the clubs stopped operating in September. Walking through the square at 11pm at night, I did not hear any music blaring from the cafes and bars. I recommend eating dinner at Cesarica, (close to Hotel Marja in the Old Town). We ate there the first night and it was very good and cheap. The second night we ate at Galion which the hotel recommended and it seems that the hotel also owns it. I think the food was only ok. It does have a nice view of the old city but the food was nothing to write home about it. I thought my squid ink risotto was bland and my friend’s grilled squid was also bland. The grilled squid at Cesarica was much better.
