It's been a while since a hotel room made me go "wow", but our room in the Hotel Astoria was pretty cool (note: the hotel kindly upgraded us to a junior suite, so my room description is based on the suite). We had a wonderful view facing the water and mountains as well as a small balcony where one could step out and watch the yachts in the harbor. The decor was intriguing. Each room has it's own name, and there was a passage in Greek written on the ceiling above the bed.
Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, even sending some out to guide us to the parking lot and then taking us back to the hotel by golf cart -- providing a brief tour of Kotor in the meantime. The impression we got from hotel staff was that they were genuinely proud of their city, and wanted to share it with us.
The hotel is very conveniently located just off the main square. Breakfast was part of our rate, and served fresh from the menu -- a nice change from the typical hotel buffet.
Overall, we had an outstanding experience, and were sorry to leave. If we ever pass through Kotor again, we know where we'll be staying!
