    Hotel not in city center

    There is an in house restaurant. Since we arrived Podgorica past 8 PM and it was raining, there was no time to look for place to eat, hence we went straight to the property by taxi. Restaurant is pretty good. Vukajlo, the soft-spoken waiter was apologetic that he struggled with his English. Hotel hAS arrangement with a taxi company to make sure you are not ripped off by the driver. Taxi to downtown is about 3 euros. An added plus is the complimentary breakfast buffet with lots of hot entrees. This was my main reason for booking the hotel.

    My only complain was the weird smell coming from the bathroom drainage system. The room and bathroom were clean, no doubt about that. But we could definitely smell the drainage system coming from the bathroom.

    Exceptional stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It was me and my partner traveling together and the gentleman at the reception asked if we wanted separate twin beds instead. Thought that was a little funny. Room and bathroom were spacious. I was impressed by the California King Bed. Breakfast was really good. The gentleman that worked at the Hotel's restaurant did not speak any English, but we made it work. He was great as well.

    Nothing really bad.

    All male/female receptionists were very pleasant and helpful. No "attitude". Thanks to Yelena and Anna. First room was a little old, dark and rough and I asked to be moved-no problem. New room had very comfy bed. Good toilet/shower room. Comfy room. Quiet hotel. The room had problem with the safe but this was promptly replaced. There was also a problem where overhead light flashed all night. Next day asked to be fixed.. light bulb was eventually changed. On-site restaurant bar food ok, nothing special. Waiter was pleasant. Breakfast ok but was not replenished so if you're late, you might miss out. Parking out front. Hotel on main road to Cetinje but was not noisy at all. A decent hotel - a little out of town so will need taxis but enjoyable stay.

They were very friendly and approachable and didn't make you feel like you were putting them out. They were excellent!!

    It is a pity that pets are not allowed because I will definitely stay at the hotel again but only when I travel without my dog.

    Good value for money! The hotel has been very effectively refurbished since my last stay two years ago. The room is enjoyably modern, the bed comfortable, the bathroom spacious and overall very clean. The Wi Fi connection in the room was excellent. The breakfast buffet offers a large variety of food, something for everyone except that there is only white bread on offer. The location of the hotel is particularly handy because it is on a quiet side street just off the main road leading out of town and also a couple of blocks from the centre of Podgorica.
