Characterful boutique studio in a beautifully restored old-stone merchant’s house in the heart of ancient Kotor
The honey-coloured exposed brickwork hints at the Kotor Wine Rooms' former origins as an old-stone merchant’s house. It has now been transformed into a charming apartment-hotel, with a great location in the heart of ancient Kotor old town.
This apartment-hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the delights of the UNESCO world-heritage site of Kotor. Wander the ancient alleyways and cobble-stoned squares with so much history to soak up, gaze at the yachts bobbing around in the harbour or just while away the hours in a café. The marina at Tivat and beaches of the Lustica peninsula are also only a short drive away. And of course swimming in the bay is just a quick stroll away.
The Kotor Wine Rooms - studios above a rustic wine shop - have been beautifully restored, with exposed traditional stone walls adding to the charm. Simple wooden furniture complements the natural character of the building and features such as ceiling cornices and stained glass lampshades add an eclectic edge. The well-appointed self-catering studios are equipped with a kitchenette for basic cooking as well as flat-screen television, safe and free wifi internet access.
Breakfast is optional and is served in the pretty taverna-style outdoor restaurant - just around the corner from the apartments - with checked table runners and vines trailing from above.

Tucked away in the tight and twisting stone alleyways of Kotor and set above a rustic wine shop is the boutique apart-hotel of Kotor Wine Rooms. This lovingly-restored building, with its tiled staircase, exposed traditional stone walls and beamed ceilings, is an ideal place to soak up the history of this UNESCO protected town - undoubtedly one of the best preserved medieval old towns in the Adriatic.
Overlooked by the imposing and lofty Lovcen Mountain and surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period, it is easy to see why this town played such a significant strategic role in trade and commerce for its imperial rulers including the Romans through to the Venetians, Ottomans and Habsburgs. Trade and commerce is still a feature for Kotor - now in the form of its excellent restaurants, cafes and cool bars. It's easy to lose yourself in the shaded, mazed-alleyways, safe in the knowledge that you are never too far away from a coffee pick-me-up or the reward of a tasty ice cream.
With so much to offer the senses inside the walls, just don’t forget there is a life outside.
