Csodálatosan felújított óvárosi rész Herceg Noviban, mindenképpen érdemes felkeresni.
Unique Suggestions: Gyönyörű kilátás a Kanli Kula-ból a tenger felé, ahol jelenleg szabadtéri színház is működik. A belépő fejenként 1 Euró volt, szerintem ennyit bőven megér!
Fun Alternatives: A főtéren találtunk egy fagylaltozós kávézót. 4 Euróért kaptunk hatalmas fagylaltkelyhet, íze és a látványa is lenyűgöző volt!
Hotel Plaža in Herceg Novi is the perfect example of the old-Communist-Titist style hotel-resorts built in the 60/70s, boasting 3 or 4 stars but which haven't been refurbished since. The overall conditions of the resort are appalling but they still ask for the price of a luxury hotel.
In addition to this, the manager is a natural robber! When we asked for the price of a room he said 33 euros per person in the so-called "renovated" part of the hotel and 20 euros in the "older" part. After having cheked both rooms we opted for the "old" one thinking that we could live without the new furniture and save a few bucks.
The room was indeed really ***ty, with real mushrooms growing on the dirty oozing walls!!! But nevermind we thought, it's cheap!
Well, it wasn't so cheap in the end: The next morning when we went to pay, the manager said with a smile on his face: It's 80 euros all together. WHAT !!!! But that's not what you said yesterday! He replied that our English was really bad because that's exactly what he said.
He used the fact that we had to give him our passports to get the keys to bully us. So we had no choice but to pay! This left such a bitter taste in the mouth that the whole stay in Montenegro was spoiled and we went straight back to Croatia. At least there you pay for what you get.
Unique Suggestions: 1) Pay in advance so you don't get ripped off the next morning
2) DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PASSPORT TO THE RECEPTION!
Fun Alternatives: 50 m further is Hotel Perla. The location is exactly the same: right on the beautiful bay, prices are twice as less and service is great.
