“An average hotel with slightly over priced”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We booked this hotel because of the location of where it is situated, close to the beach, shops restaurants and wanted to be nearer to others who we were holidaying with.

I feel we paid slightly over for what we got, i.e. rooms, breakfast, and other facilities; isn't what I call a 4 star to be honest. E.g. there isn't any space for swimming pool, etc. The staff were very nice and friendly. They could improve with better choices of breakfast maybe to cater broader audience, wifi in rooms, etc.

Budva itself is a beautiful small coastal town with spectacular mountain backdrops, historic features, etc. I believe the tourists consists of mainly former Yugoslavs, Russians, Italians..?
I personally feel Montenegro although it is a new country has a few years to catch up. Maybe this appeals for some?

All restaurants serve almost same food and oh yes there is 1 chinese restaurant in the old town marina.

This is my personal views and I wish you Happy Holidays

I will come back. Room was large, clean, and comfortable. A/c very good. Wifi in lobby only. Young, female afternoon receptionist was very, very kind and helpful. Great location for walking around town. Breakfast was average tourist buffet fare in an uninteresting room on level 1. They should consider serving it on the main floor which has outside patio seating...perhaps add some large umbrellas or awnings to help with the morning sun...it would be charming!

Hotel is situated in the center of Budva and everything is within walking distance, old town, shops, post office, night bars... The gentleman that worked in the night shift at the reception was really nice, polite and helpful, which cannot be said for other receptionist. We spent 3 nights there, and even though our stay in Budva was nice I wouldn't go to this hotel again. Breakfast was OK, and the lady that was at the buffet was really nice and polite too. Our room was big and nicely decorated on first look, but after few minutes we realised the carpet hasn't been vacuumed for months probably (it wasn't vacuumed during our stay neither), tables were full of dust; there was a hole the size of tennis ball on the ceiling in the corridor which had stains from, I assume, dripping water. Night stand had burned marks as if somebody left cigarettes burning on them and the room had a smell of cigarettes which nonsmokers (as myself) notice immediately. When we were checking out the maid came down and said to the receptionist that we took something from the bar (which we didn't) but was unsure herself if that something was even placed in the bar before our arrival. I don't think hotel staff should have this kind of conversation in front of guests. If this was a 2 or 3 star hotel, I think I would't be this disappointed, but for a 4 star hotel, I expect much more. All 3 star hotels we stayed at around Europe were way cleaner and better organised than this hotel.

We chose Budva and the Bue Star Hotel to explore Kotor Bay and the mountains around. The Blue Star is rated as a 4 star and I believe deserve the classification. It is a modern building, good and big rooms, good bathroom, good dinning room and a small elevator. The breakfast was good also. The beach it is 10 minutes walking and we can find more restaurants there and a little bit far there is the Old Town with more restaurants, bars, shops and so on. The price is also very reasonable when compared with the prices at Croatia. For us was a excellent choice.

The room was nice and clean, the breakfast was a little bit poor, but I think the price is too much comparative with the quote.

A friend of mine told me about the hotel and im glad they did.
It was a friendly place to stay 5 Min's from were you need be be in Budva
old town.The rooms are very comfortable and service was grate. All in all
not a bad place to stay for the money in Budva, as it can be very expensive
in the bigger hotels near by.
