I had Dash Star in my sights for Novi Sad - even though it was a bit above our normal budget - so when we saw a great last-minute price, we jumped and booked in for four nights. Lovely, comfy stay, in a modern hotel with great and very professional staff.
The hotel is a bit off the beaten track; about a 10 minute taxi drive from the train station, or one bus to get downtown in about 15 minutes (fairly frequent). There are a few basic shops and cafes in the area (notably Obelix, a fave fast food spot for many), but unless you have a car, you may find your food/entertainment choices a bit limited compared to downtown.
The hotel has lovely, modern decor, and a cafe attached, which serves the inclusive breakfast in the morning, plus coffees & drinks during the day (no other meals/food). The breakfast was plentiful, with a variety of choices. Note that coffee is not included - you pay for your cuppa, although it is not too expensive.
Our room was on the second floor (no lift). It was very spacious, with good storage and the same clean, classic decor as in the rest of the hotel. Wifi was good throughout, there was a nice TV (with English stations), and a roller shutter on the window (although it was a bit tricky to use). The bathroom was nice, and the shower hot, but a bit awkward to use, as there was no shower screen / curtain, and it was impossible to avoid getting too much water on the floor. I asked a staff member about this and she acknowledged that it was a problem, but that the hotel was still new and it was something they were getting around to fixing. I would suggest they do this sooner, rather than later.
In summary - great hotel, particularly for business visitors who have little need to sightsee, or for anyone with a car or willingness to travel a bit to look around Novi Sad.
