“Very convenient location and nice staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

This hotel is very central and in spite of its exterior ( looks like a soviet-style hotel from the 70s) it is very welcoming with nice rooms and splendid breakfast. I truly recommend it to travellers as well as the lovely gourgeous city of Belgrade!!

I stayed at this hotel many times during my trips to Belgrade. I've been always very pleasantly surprised to professional service .. maybe with one exception, but generally the staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are newly remodelled and spacious, very clean with very comfortable beds, air conditioning, mini-bar, cable TV etc. Hotel is located near the station and walking distance to most of the city. Parking seems to be too small for the needs of a large number of visitors, sometimes to enter the hotel you have to elbow between parked on the way to the entrance cars. Unfortunately the general impression was spoiled by an unpleasant lady working on the front desk, 10 minutes before check out time she called me and told me that "you finish ", for a moment I felt like in a cheap hotel with rooms rented for hours. I expected during check out only one word from her - "sorry", but only an ironic smile was a response to my complaint. In any case, despite of the unpleasant one case, my overall impression of this hotel is very good and I recommend it to anyone who is going to visit Belgrade.

This hotel was recommended to me by a work colleague who had visited Belgrade before. this was my first trip to the city.

I travel a lot on business and I'm used to staying in 4* hotels run by the usual chains. I hesitated at booking a hotel that was charging the equivalent of £30 GBP per night (with breakfast) but thought I would trust my colleague and book anyway. I am very glad that I did.

I don't intend this to be a review of Belgrade as a whole, which is an interesting city with a striking history, but I will offer a bit of advice on getting into the city centre from the airport. You will be advised to book a taxi while you are still airside to avoid being ripped off. You can do that if you wish, and spend about 1,500 Dinar (15 euros), or you can catch the airport bus (No.72) which is parked immediately outside the door, departs every 20 minutes, travels to the central railway station and costs a princely 250 Dinar.

Hotel Rex is a 10 minute walk from the railway station. Don't be put off by the grey post-war architecture of New Belgrade, the older city has certainly got that lived-in look but it has much of interest to offer. The nightlife is excellent (I'm told), the restaurants are plentiful, cheap and of qood quality (cuisine tends to be unpretentious but uses plenty of fresh produce).

Hotel Rex looks like a throw-back to the 1980s in decor but the staff are extremely effcient and helpful, and the place is very clean. I booked a 'single room for single occupancy' and was pleasantly surprised to get a very spacious room with a king-size bed, flat screen TV, good Wi-Fi connection (complimentary) and a perfectly adequate shower room. The room was spotlessly clean, the mini-bar well-stocked and very cheap (less than £2 for a beer), the bed comfortable and the water hot. Elsewhere in Europe I have paid five times the price for a grubby room of inferior space and quality at a more pretentious establishment.

The hotel restaurant is open from 0600-2300 and serves a good range of food from an extensive menu. The breakfast is fine and there's a fair choice of foods. The salads are particularly good. While none of the cooking would win any Michelin stars, it is freshly cooked, using fresh ingredients, and was tasty and filling. Service was excellent and I was astonished by the polyglot waiters who seemed able to change from Serbian to English to Italian to German without breaking step. I felt rather ashamed of my poor language skills in comparison.

The only criticism I would make is that smoking is still allowed in the restaurant, but this is the case throughout Serbia so it's unfair to single the hotel out in this regard. Non-smoking bedroms are available (as mine was) and they are fine.

In conclusion: clean, comfortable, spacious accommodation with good facilities at an extremely reasonable price. i would use the hotel again.

Room Tip: Book in advance (I used Octopus Travel online and paid in advance in the UK) and make your request f...

Stayed here during a work trip to Serbia, and overall pleased with the hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean, and staff generally helpful, though fatalistic (could be a national characteristic). A little out of the centre, and a walk to the castle takes around 20-30 mins (much of it uphill).

Pricing was reasonable, and I would stay here again. Beware the rush hour though if you require car transportation - the hotel stands on a busy one-way street, which is gridlocked from 8-10am. ALSO - if you're from a country (like the UK) with draconian anti-smoking legislation, you'll find all the indoor puffing here (and throughout Serbia) a little unpleasant (or a welcome relief, depending on your predilection).

The hotel is not really in the centre and I have found it with some difficulties the evening I arrived in Belgrade.
Anyway, it is near the railways station and this has been a good advantage when I took the train early in the morning to visit Novi Sad and Subotica.
The breakfast I had in the morning was really good and the room was quite cosy even though not too big.
In the period I stayed at the hotel there were not a lot of other travellers except on my last day because there was a marathon or something similar.
The price I paid for the three night I stayed there (in a single) was really cheap considering the service and the quality of the stay.

I was lucky enough to recentlly visit Belgrade and stayed at the Hotel Rex. The hotel is well situated and it's a pleasant 20 minute stroll to the city centre with a variety of decent small bars and cafes along the way.

The hotel receptionist was very good and took care of details such as arranging a taxi the following morning for the airport run and arranging early morning call etc. The hotel really does look like an office block from the outside but inside has all the practical necessities required. The room was perfectly adequate for my requirements, the bed was comfortable, the tv worked as did the aircon and the room was well cleaned.

The breakfast here is eminently adequate, coffee, tea, juices, cereal, bread rolls, bread for toast, cheeses, meats and a selection from the hot plate. (You can tell that I was more than happy with the hospitality here)

So, all in all, a perfectly good choice of hotel in a safe area and for the price that they charge, you can't go wrong. I booked through Ocopus travel and paid around £37.00. Bargain.

Forti dell'esperienza di un team di professionisti, l'Hotel Rex propone una sala riunioni di 45 metri quadrati con luce naturale. La prima Colazione all'Hotel Rex viene preparata quotidianamente con prodotti freschi e di qualita. La passione per le cose semplici e autentiche, per i prodotti di stagione e per i sapori veri si concretizzano nell'esperienza della colazione, con piatti cucinati al momento, utilizzando i prodotti del territorio, attraverso una ricerca molto attenta al km zero. Un pizzico di Made in Italy nel nostro servizio di prima colazione dara ai nostri ospiti il miglior buongiorno! Siamo disponibili su richiesta ad offrire prodotti per celiaci e preparare cibi adatti ad ogni esigenza alimentare. Su questa scelta basiamo il nostro impegno nel valorizzare la cucina. Certamente partendo da quella Serba, gustosa, franca e conviviale con le sue fragranti verdure, come i peperoni con cui si prepara la salsa "Ajvar" da spalmare sul fragrante pane locale o il diffusissimo cavolo liscio che fa da base per le insalate e che qui si chiama "Kupus" ma che nella versione fermentata, piu rustica e decisa diventa "Kiseli Kupus". Le corba corroboranti e saporite zuppe, sono il piatto usuale di entrata in inverno e non solo, ma anche i salumi, specialmente quelli affumicati che rappresentano il vanto della tradizione contadina balcanica con all'apice il gustoso quanto prezioso Njeguski Prsut del Montenegro. Da non dimenticare i formaggi, in particolar modo quelli freschi e morbidi, come il gustoso Kajmak che spesso fa anche da guarnizione alle carni alla griglia. Il "Rostilj" ovvero la griglia e la vera istituzione gastronomica Serba e dei Balcani, principale metodo di cottura di carni succulente come il manzo, il pollo, il maiale, ma soprattutto la Plijescavica e i Cevapi. Il primo e un piatto molto simile ad un hamburger di dimensioni abbondanti e spesso sormontato da una cucchiaiata di formaggio Kajmak, i secondi, i Cevapi, sono un emblema dei Balcani, polpette di carne dalla forma allunga cotte alla griglia. La ricetta per preparali e un piccolo segreto che ogni cuoco custodisce per dare ai propri Cevapi un sapore unico. Anche le portate di pesce sono molto diffuse, soprattutto i pesci di acqua dolce che spesso sono prima affumicati e poi cotti alla griglia come la Carpa e la Trota Salmonata. ... more   less
