Having worked in Montenegro for a number of years, and knowing was hotel standards are like, It was with some trepidation that I checked into Hotel Podgorica on a recent return visit to the country. I had nothing to be concerned about. The receptionist was excellent - good language skills, efficient, polite and friendly, and helpful. I was allocated a room facing the front of the hotel but, when I arrived at my room, the reception was calling to say that she could give me a room with a terrace and a river view - an unexpected and lovely upgrade.
The decor in the room is contemporary and very relaxing. There is a good selection of TV channels, free wifi, a good range of toiletries and very comfortable beds. My only issue is that the air conditioning is centrally controlled. I was staying in October but the temperature was in the mid 20s and air conditioning would have been really nice.
The breakfast buffet offers a good selection of hot and cold items, including delicious pastries, and excellent coffee.
The public areas are nice but quite smoky as smoking inside is still permitted in Montenegro and smoking is very common.
All in all, it was a very good experience and I would definitely recommend the hotel.
