“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. Located just through the gates of this beautiful and quaint walled city check in was easy. The friendly staff looked after us and we were soon sat outside by the beach drinking a cold drink whilst our room was made ready. The staff were fantastic. The breakfast was excellent and the ability to swim in the warm sea steps away from the hotel was a big bonus. This is a great location in an old town full of character. We had dinner in the hotel itself on two of the nights and we were not dissappointed the food was excellent and reasonably priced.With luxury yachts in the harbour and a feel good atmosphere in the square by the town this area can only become more popular. A great stay.

Room Tip: Although sea view rooms are limited it makes little difference as the location by the sea is excelle...

We stayed here for one night during our quick jaunt to Montenegro. The location in Budva was excellent, it was within the walls of the old city and the restaurant is right on the beach. The rooms were decent, the bathrooms were quite large. We did have an issue where we could hear the HVAC system but with the window closed we couldn't hear anything. It was the most expensive place we stayed during our trip and would didn't think it was quite worth the money, it was however decent and I would recommend it for anyone going to Budva.

You can't beat the location - inside the old town, built right into the old walls. It's not quite a boutique hotel - everything is a bit utilitarian. However, it is right on the town beach (gravel) and surrounded by pubs, restaurants and shop in this beautiful small town - a mini Dubrovnik. Breakfast (included @ €140 for double) and wifi. Lacks a real restaurant but is close to many.

A great place to stay if you are in Budva. The rooms are fresh, clean and modern. The restaurant is excellent offering world cusine with a Montenegrian twist.
Situated within the walls of the old town it provides you with luxury and position.

We arrived at the Hotel Astoria in Budva having spent a few nights in its more sophisticated sister hotel in Kotor, and the comparison wasn't favourable.
It is in the old town, and that is a definite plus - very atmospheric and you're in the middle of everything. The hotel bar/restaurant is quite cool with its bare stone walls, and its beachfront was always busy but for me the experience was a little disappointing.
We went to Budva off-season in mid-April and the seaview room was 160 euros a night. It was spacious with simple black and white decor, and a balcony onto the beach which was great, but it all seemed a little shabby.
The cramped over-bath shower leaked all over the floor, the window leaked all over the floor, there were holes in the only bathrobe, the furniture was clunky and lightbulbs were blown.
The staff were also apathetic compared to the fantastic hospitality we'd received at the Astoria in Kotor, although this may have been down to language (I'll even forgive them accusing me of stealing the hairdryer on the last day). Information on taxis and tours was inaccurate and they weren't friendly at all.
Would I recommend the place? I would for the location, but not for the service or standard of accommodation. I might have viewed it more charitably had I not been at the Astoria in Kotor, which we loved.
Definitely go to the Cafe Mozart across the road though - great food and drinks, and really friendly staff.

Room Tip: Seaview room was more expensive, but definitely worth it for the view over the busy beach

This is a lovely hotel in probably the best location in Budva, right in the old town.

We were a party of 4, 2 of us staying in a sea view suite and the other 2 in a regular suite. These rooms were very big and modern, with plenty of space for clothing. They were also very clean. The only downside was noise: sea view ones were noisy while beach party lasted, the other was noisy during the night, while Budva bars were still open.

Parking arrangements are not very convenient – it is a public parking and the arrangement with the hotel is a about the daily price, no the space. If there is no free space, you will need to wait. This being said, we never had major issues and it was high season.

Breakfast it served in 2 of the restaurants belonging to the hotel. We always chose the beach one, with great setting. Orders are “a la carte”, meaning you could order as much as you wanted from the menu. This was always plentiful and of excellent quality.

One this to note though, at least when we were there, is the amount of bees at the little hotel beach. I have found this quite common in some parts of the Mediterranean when it is very hot but I cannot say whether it was exceptional or always like that. In any case, 2 out us 4 got bitten by bees, luckily none of us is allergic but it still hurts.

Hotel rooftop restaurant was fantastic.

People at the hotel were very friendly and service was in general very good. However, they should still work on fixing little issues. For example, they are supposed to provide beach towels. However, one morning (around 9:30am), they were all being washed. Fortunately, we had brought our own or otherwise we would have needed to buy new since no solution was provided.

Room prices are still expensive for the type of accommodation and for the general price level in Montenegro. However, I think this hotel is trying hard to reach European standards and I hope they will get there in the future. Probably the best place to stay in Budva.

We were there on a business trip during off season (December).
Practically no tourist at all in Budva, we were the only guests of the hotel.
It seemed, the had opened the hotel only for us.

The hotel is located at the entry of Budva's historic city center and should be your No 1 choice for a place to stay in Budva.

You can easily escape the buildings and facilities construed for more or less weahtly Russians and enjoy a historic sourounding.

Breakfast was à la carte in the hotel's café. They would have even opened the hotel's private beach for us. Local temperature did not allow a quick dive, in the end.
