The Astoria Hotel Budva is a boutique four-star hotel in Budva’s glittering old town. It’s a great location to base yourself if you’re looking for comfort and style in the heart of the old town.
The hotel has its own rooftop restaurant, La Bocca, overlooking Budva old town and the sea – this is the ultimate in a Budva town getaway.
Staying in the old town allows you to soak up the buzzing atmosphere of Budva and you have the added advantage of having restaurants and bars for evening entertainment on your doorstep.
Budva’s old town is very pretty and historic, with museums, churches and ancient ruins lying beneath it. But in summer it’s better known as Montenegro’s party capital. The town’s beaches are full of glistening bodies in little bikinis and at night the party keeps going – until 1am that is, when everything shuts down and everyone heads up to Top Hill nightclub.
This is the chief consideration when you're thinking about staying in Budva old town. The location is amazing, of course, but you have to expect a significant amount of noise until the wee hours, especially in summer.
If you want to stay in the heart of the action, then this hotel could be just the place for you.
The Astoria Hotel has 12 rooms and suites in total – 6 of each. They’re classed as the following:
Standard Double Room – the standard double room comes with
either a queen size bed or twin beds at your request.
Superior Room – the superior room has a queen bed and sofa bed. It overlooks Budva old town.
Standard Suite – the standard suite has a bedroom with queen bed and separated lounge with couch and desk.
Superior Suite – this suite is perfect for families. It’s got two rooms – a double and a single with an optional rollaway bed. It’s also got a separated lounge and overlooks Budva old town.
Sea View Suite – the sea view suite has a queen size bed, sofa bed, desk, cable tv, internet and a balcony overlooking the sea.
As you can see below, the rooms are all nice and modern and the suites are spacious.
I'm a sucker for desserts and here they have an impressive dessert menu. You can choose from things like tiramisu, chocolate lava cake, brownies and crème brulee.
The rooftop restaurant is just for meals, which is a shame if you were hoping to enjoy an evening cocktail up here. But if you want to dine, you can always linger over a drink or two and enjoy the view... which really is impressive!
The hotel has a part of the beach right in front of the old town, just for its guests. This is a really pretty beach with small pebbles and a pier that goes out into the sea.
You do have to pay for loungers and sun umbrellas here and they cost €10 per day.
There's often pulsing dance music here and if you get a spot close to another private beach, you can wind up hearing different music from two different beaches. If you're not into the beach bar scene, I recommend heading 5 minutes around the head to Mogren beach.
The prices here start from €115 per night.
