A couple times when I went to shower, I only had mildly warm water. The other times the water was hot.
About the location: Yes, it is away from the center. While there is a local bus stop about 40 m from the hotel, I never investigated whether it was suitable for going to the center. There are local restaurants, min-markets, and a supermarket at the next cross-roads (200-250 m). From that intersection you can walk three blocks to the street Bulevar Mese Selimovica and the trams. Other guests have written about inexpensive taxi rides, but I use the trams twice and otherwise enjoyed walks (and of course Emina taxi service). There is a well-maintained Muslim commentary about the hotel. Obviously, these are things to consider, but for me I'm glad to recommend TSC Pansion.
I stayed in the TSC Pansion for two night May 2014. My room was clean and modern. There was plenty of shelve space. The breakfast was superior, well served and plentiful. I always felt secure.
Service was spectacular. When I wrote the hotel about the arrival time of my bus, Emina wrote back to say she would meet my bus. I don’t think she realized that buses from Podgorica arrived at the east bus terminal, not the main terminal. Anyway after some confusion on my part and the early bus arrival, she gamey drove out to the station. Upon my departure Emina also transported me to the nearby main bus station.
