“Very Good hotel, in cool location”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I rode into Zemun on recomendation fo local friends: it is The place to be.
the hotel stood out as a good looking building on a prime location.

good first impression, good replies from reception, inlcuding free Wifi (tested), nice room (seen) and safe motorbike parking (check). Done deal.

Hotel and room came across as brand new and it can match any botique hotel in, say, England. Excellent Value, and not expensive at for my standards.

Staff was friendly, helpful, spoke good english.
room and breakfast were top notch, especially at this price.
the waterfront area with all its attractions is a great added bonus.

Will probably stay here again soon. (I pass through Belgrade two or three more times in next few weeks and I have this hotel under speed dial.

Room Tip: possilby ask for room that is not on top (3rd) floor : sun on roof will heat up. but airco was worki...

This hotel is a perfect example of how a great location can help overcome all deficiencies, no matter what star category it is. Of course, at 35 euros per night, I was not exactly expecting any kind of luxury, but just the basic amenities. But they were lacking. To start with, the outside of the hotel is totally uninspiring and defies the name 'Design' hotel. There are uneven steps from the road and the pavement to the door. Next, there is no elevator in this 3 story hotel with multiple levels of steps. I had a challenge carrying my large suitcase up the flight, with no help in sight. The first room assigned to me was repulsive. It smelled of something strange, with no air or sun, a very cramped room and even smaller bathroom. I quickly bolted out, and was given a much larger room where the windows could open, and it was facing the river! What a change!

The bathroom was large enough, but the shower cubicle was tiny, and I could barely stand in there, and with no overhead shower, it was impossible to have a proper shower. The towels were scarce in being replaced and were worn out. The breakfast was pathetic and largely inedible. However, the staff is warm and friendly. And best of all, location, location, location.

The hotel is right on the Danube, with 3 kms long promenade for walking lined with many cafes and party boats. It is a bit shabby in places, like the rest of Belgrade, but pleasant nonetheless. This location, along with Campo di Fioro, was enough for me to overcome all the deficiencies and spend a week here. Yes, I discovered this authentic trattoria Campo di Fioro by accident, and ended up eating there almost daily. Do not miss it. It is a 5 min walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the river. Avoid the Economy rooms. They are terrible.

Nice little hotel with very friendly staff, excellent breakfasts and modern clean rooms.

There is no elevator and no air conditioning..and that's only mistake so far.

Hotel is situated in calm and very pleasent neighbourhood with excellent connections to city center.
