“Fantastic food”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

The Hotel Ziya is home to Montenegro's first and possibly only Lebanese restaurant, and that is reason enough for you to visit. That the food is quite excellent is a wonderful bonus. Sure, it's pricey by local standards (€60 for two without booze), but you gets what you pays for. The mezze are varied, tasty and good value, and the mains might be small than you'd be used to in this country (ie, normal portions rather than huge), but they are all exquisitely presented and seriously tasty. Service is sunny and prompt, the decor is sensitive and well thought out and for a "splash out" dinner I'm not sure you'll find better anywhere in the country. Expats take note - it's a gem.

The very friendly and helpful staff always went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Clean rooms, sunny patio in front of the restaurant, nice spa facility, and great haircut in the salon!

I spent here five days. At the very first moment I felt so comfortable. Very polite and unobtrusive personnel, very nice rooms and restaurant. And gorgeous terrace!!! I spent hours there preparing my lessons. It was so peacful, fragrant, creative. You couldn't belive - it's five minutes (or less) from city centre.

Luxury pure! Small rooms but stylish. Great bathroom, BIG shower, Bvlgari and Trussardi cosmetics. A lot of mirrors, bang & olufsen tv and phone, airconditioning efficient. Staff is nice, helpful and polite. Location is superb, 5 minute walk to city center. Breakfast was not that great, but ok and you get a normal espresso with it. We missed the space for cosmetics at the sink. But we put it on the shelf under sink.
An amazing experience! Podgorica is becoming a nice and modern city therefore strongly recommend a visit.

So, I don`t have words to say have much I loved this hotel. This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Everything is so clean. Staff are really nice. We had dinner in restaurant and the food was great. Staff was nice. Everything is great but the spa facilities and massage are the best thing!

Probably the best place to stay in Podgorica. Small but truly luxurious hotel. Fantastic location, great design, very good breakfast. Aircon very efficient and quiet - which is important in Podgorica during summer.

One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in and will definitely stay there again.

Would be nice if staff English was a bit better sometimes but, well, equally my Montenegrin should be better.

I did not stay at this hotel, but I did have a massage and eat twice in the restaurant. Spa facilities are top notch, but only massages are available to the public. Restaurant is Lebanese influenced but has excellently prepared dishes for a reasonable price, give the quality.

Restaurant staff very very nice and friendly, but I not used to too much business. For this reason, I often had to get their attention for service.
