Where to Stay When Visiting Porto Montenegro Marina

For those visiting the Porto Montenegro marina like us, or for others seeking to enjoy the Old town of Kotor and the fortifications around the city the new Boutique Hotel Hippocampus is we think a delightful place to rest ones head.

There will come a time soon when the marina complex boasts its own hotel.
Set to welcome guests by May 2014, the Regent Hotelwill play an integral role in the use of Porto Montenegro by the superyacht fraternity.  Designed by Reardon Smith Architects, the waterfront property comprises 80 units in a mix of hotel guest rooms and residences.
But until that time this hotel in Kotor is an alternative place to opt for.  The medieval stone building, located next to the of the 12th century St. Anne’s Church has been carefully restored and the combination of preserved stone elements and contemporary design solutions works well to make it somewhat quaint.
Antique furniture from old houses around Boka Bay has been used alongside designer pieces that are especially commissioned and constructed for this hotel. Tables, chairs, beds, lighting and cabinets have been made exclusively for the use in this hotel.
The walls are decorated by small sculptures and original large format paintings, but with much of the wall left as bare stone the feeling of the whole hotel is as a result somewhat cave like
Our deluxe apartment at €280 a night, came with Free Wi-Fi Internet, two LCD TV with international channels, audio equipment, central air conditioning indoor controlled, safe deposit, mini-bar, bathroom, additional private loo and even a trainer-bike

Top Hotels are however like superyachts in that it is the service that runs alongside the décor that matters and here the hotel has just not got it right yet.
Two restaurants seat around 100 inside and out and the menu looks good.  We ate only at breakfast and while pleasant was not much to write home about.
