“Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2011

I was looking for a nice place to camp out and relax for a few days while in the Kotor, Amforma turned out to be the perfect hotel in a great location. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Wonderful boutique restaurant with breathtaking views. Room was very comfortable, all the amenities needed. Room was quite big and they even upgraded me since I was there during a slow time of year (early April).

The restaurant was pretty good and there were other options not far away.

Really enjoyed my stay. A definite highlight of the hotels I stayed at during this trip.

This was a really pleasant surprise - a small, sleek, stylish hotel with its own private beach off the Bay of Kotor (itself a pleasant surprise). Service is accommodating and our room - a double - was fairly big by European standards, as well as clean and modern, with large windows for (hopefully) sweeping views of that placid, azure sea.

Our prix-fixe dinner, which we got to choose from a menu in the comfort of our room (I'm not sure if this a standard service, we went with a small adventure tour group), was surprisingly stupendous - cuttlefish risotto with ink and decent crepes for dessert, all while lingering on their beach-front terrace for hours, makes for a mighty fine evening. I'd come back here in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Definitely try to grab a room with a sea view (most have them, but just make sure)

This lovely boutique hotel has an exquisite location overlooking unspoiled Kotor Bay. The spacious rooms have wonderful views of this jewel of the Adriatic. Dining al fresco is enhanced by unhampered views of the bay and the villages dotting the shoreline of this scenic bay. You can swim from the hotel's beachfront location or rent kayaks for exploring. However, the accommodating staff is what truly sets this hotel apart. Did I mention the food? Excellent dinner menu and selection of wines. The breakfasts leave nothing to be desired.

Room Tip: Request a room facing Kotor Bay on the third floor. The suites have balconies facing the sea, a sit...

Spacious two-room appartment, a huge balcony with an umbrella, a sunbed, a table and armchairs. Pretty nice decor in worm beige color. The minus: in a bathroom there isn't any saop/gel/cream and so on accessories. The stuff are a little bit slow, but friendly enough. There was nothing from that negative reviews about stuff and breakfast I've read here. Breakfast is not too much various, but quite qualitative. The big variety is not for this country at all. I recommend to take only breakfasts and to book this hotel as base for rest and a relaxation after long day and evening walks on coast and mountains of this Montenegro region. After looking through my pictures I've made standing in my room you will trust me that so magnificent views in the mornings can give you so much energy and good mood for your new day! And silence of the nights in that place also can help you to relax. So this hotel not for fun but real relax.

Situated mid-way between the two nicest towns on the bay - Perast and Kotor - this is a good place to base yourself for a sightseeing trip. You get a lot of room for your money, with cable TV and free internet access in the suite, and the sea views are stunning. There's some room for improvement in the service, but I found the staff welcoming, For 35 euros a night with breakfast, I think this represents exceptional vale.

we've been to many places all around the world but we have never seen such bad service in our lives.The staff in the Amfora Hotel were an absolute disaster.It was our honeymoon and we decided to stay in this 4 star hotel which presented itself on line as a high class establishment. Upon arrival we found out that the hotel didn't have any soap or any other toiletries.The bed sheets were smaller than the bed forcing us to have to sleep on the matrasse.Although there were only 1 more couple apart from us in the hotel the service was unacceptably slow.You had to wait 20 minutes before the waiter came to take your order while he's chatting with his colleagues in the corner.The first morning they served us a nice breakfast however the next morning we didn't get even half of the things we had the day before.Even for bread we had to wait for 20 mins after asking twice.We ordered a fruit plate and they brought us completely rotten slimy old black apples,oranges and grapes where the whole country is full of fruit trees pommegranets,figs,grapes,mandarins,oranges etc.The staff(including hotel manager) never tried to apologize or at least smile,it looked like they hated their job and we were not wanted there.We checked out the second day although we planned to stay for a week.We chose this place because it was advertised by the British newspaper Guardian.But surely ,they didn't stay there or the management changed recently.

We have had an unfortunate experience with this hotel… After the hotel confirmed our reservation for a sea-view apartment, we received a very unpleasant surprise in the form of an email informing us “here was misunderstanding, the guests who canceled the reservation on this apartment, comfirmed their reservation again. So, unfortinatly, we haven´t any available apartment any more.” Therefore we were left without a room even after receiving confirmation of the reservation! Unacceptable customer service…
