Accommodation in Kotor

by Stingdaddy

Hi, my partner and i have 1 night in Kotor at the end of this month. We would normally book hostels although there is limited hostels and we thought we would try and stay somewhere nice (location). Would you recommend any hostels or hotels in the area that are cheap (30€ or less each per night) and accessible from the transport?

I need to know some good websites so i can book. hostelworld.com and hostelbookers.com do not have much

As far as I know there are no hostels in Kotor, except maybe a student place that would only be open for tourists in summer (i.e. not when you are there). The only hostel I have heard of in the whole of Montenegro is the Hippo Hostel in Budva. That's why you won't find many places on sites like Hostelworld.

Hotels in this region tend to be rather overpriced for what you get, private rooms are usually much better value. But it's rare to find details online, usually it's easier to go to a tourist agency when you arrive (look for one advertising "sobe" (rooms). In May there should be no shortage of accommodation.

Ok thankyou very much. Also what would be the best way to get to Kotor from Dubrovnik and when i get to Kotor are there many tourist information places nearby? How long os the trip from Dubrovnik?

Re: Accommodation in Kotor

Sorry, also what prices would i expect to pay for one night in a nice place for just me and my partner in a private room with nice views of the surroundings and within walking distance to the attractions?

There are buses from Dubrovnik to Kotor - see the timetable at http://www.libertasdubrovnik.com/voznired.swf but confirm the times at Dubrovnik bus station. Either get a direct bus to Kotor, which should take about 2 hours, or a bus to Herceg Novi from where there are frequent buses to Kotor.

Travel Tips for Kotor

Guards

by Rusket

The old couple who used to be guards of the Vrmac Fort area, still live up there. They and their animals live in peace and harmony. Except for the dog, who was a bit unhappy for not beeing allowed out to play with the other animals. Look at the goat in the main picture, how couriously it is looking into my camera :-) The calves got quite curious, too, when a group of croatian tourists came by. A mother wanted to photograph her son with them, but he was afraid of them, and the calves got bored of his company ;-)

It was really interesting talking to the couple. The old man, although sick and almost blind, was up to date with the latest events, and had his opinions on many a subject. Life up here is like it has always been, except for the cell phone ;-) And except for the fact that they are no longer capable of supporting themselves with everything they need. But, as is customary around here, families stick together. Their son bringing them supplies from the grocery store assure them the possibility to continue living at this gorgeous spot.

Walk around the charming...

by oja

Walk around the charming medieval Old Town enclosed in walls. There's practically no traffic, so you have cobbled streets all for yourself. Go to the main square, sit on the terrace and admire the sun setting behind the hill with the fortress on top. Waste a lot of time to fit in with the spirit of Montenegrians who were considered a synonym of lazyness in ex Yugoslavia. Well, in fact they're not THAT lazy ;-) Doing everything described above.

surroundings

by DPando

Kotor is split in two, the old town and the "newest" .. the old town is surrounded by these huge ramparts and the moat in each side and a grand mountain behind that served as a shelter on their back and as a fortress hill
The newest part of the town doesnt offer so much .. dont spend time there..

window view

by Aurorae

Most of the villages around Kotor and inside Boka Kotorska bay are on the seashore, and you can easily get a room with the view :), to rent the room in the house on the very coast, a spit away from the sea, and with this fascinating view from the window! I was lucky!!! :)

Bean stew

by Rusket

Mmmm, home made bean stew, one of my favourites! Or like here, more like a soup. This is customary all over former Yugoslavia. The secret of not farting too much the next day is: Put the dried beans in water in the evening, pour the water off next morning. Cook the beans in fresh water, and pour it off when boiling. THEN starts the real cooking.

There are "millions" of ways to make bean stew, this is my favourite: Add boiling water, or stock, to the precooked beans and continue cooking. If you are a vegetarian, you can add vegetable stock. If not, add leftovers of dried meat. I prefer the bone of smoked ham, with still some meat on it. Add an onion cut in large pieces, root vegetables, whole grains of pepper, a bay leaf and garlic cloves. Leave to simmer until beans are soft. I usually like my vegetables "al dente", but these vegetables are primarily here to give taste to the stew! Chop an onion and fry it on high temperature in oil, add some paprika powder. If you want a thick consistency, drizzle a tablespoon or two of flour over the onions while frying. Remove the bone from the beans, but leave the meat. Add the onion mix to the stew and stir well. Note: The stew is always best the next day, so make a double portion!

Eat with salad and bread. If you like, eat it with smoked sausages or other meat.

If you want to look for home made bean stew in restaurants: Beans is "grah" in croatian and "pasulj" in serbian.
