Drop dead gorgeous views, five star luxury, out of the way idyll... Montenegro hotels have it all... in understated spades.
When it comes to hotels in Montenegro, there’s something for everyone. Here, you'll find a hotel to suit you, no matter what your style. Do you:
Most people will choose to stay along the coast, with the choice being either the Bay of Kotor, Budva Riviera, Bar or Ulcinj. Although the mountains are beautiful and worth visiting if you’re staying at least 7 days, the coast is the best place to base yourself during your stay. The coastal regions are excellent for tourists, with plenty to do, good restaurants and of course, beaches!
You can also get a brief idea of the different areas with my recommendations below.
There are literally hundreds of Montenegro hotels to choose from. Here you'll find hotel recommendations for each area.
Staying in Kotor old town means you're in the centre of the action. But be aware that it can be noisy there, especially during summer when bars play music until 1am and people party until the wee hours.
It's a great place to base yourself if you don't want to hire a car and there are restaurants, museums, galleries and tours on your doorstep. You even have beaches within a 10 minute walk.
