Stayed here for four nights, and had a fabulous stay. The hotel was very clean, and individual, room size was good, had air con which we were very thankful for in the heat of Kotor. Beds and pillows were super comfy and we had a great nights sleep. Some other reviewers have mentioned the noise, and yes, there is some noise from the bars in the vicinity, but this isn't unique to Hotel Hippocampus, I honestly do think you would experience noise at any of the hotels in the heart of old town Kotor. The bars are allowed to play music until 1.00 am, and it did go quiet after this time. Breakfast was good, but the crowning glory for this hotel is its staff. Every member of staff we met at the hotel were polite, friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them, and in my opinion, the staff are certainly an asset and a credit to the hotel. My only slight criticism of the hotel which is why I gave it a 4 out of 5 is in relation to the en-suite, perhaps the glass screen looking into the bathroom from the bedroom could have a frosting on it, so you still got the light in, but it offered some degree of privacy. All in all a great stay.
