Visiting Belgrade on business for the last decade or more has not allowed me to see the city from its wider perspective. Usually I stayed in New Belgrade and old part of town was limited to few hours visit of traditional gems : Skadarlija, Republic square, Knez Mihajlova, Kalamegdan and Sveti Sava. I never had a chance to continue to the part where hotel Zira is located. This is further from parliament to the park of Vuk Karađić, where you turn left and in 500 meters there is a new hotel Zira. Location may not be one of the best, however on a sunny day you are about half an hour walk away from Terazije, which is just ok. Access by car may be a bit complicated (or better to say takes you 15 minutes more than just to New Belgrade), but once you get there, you can see there is no problem. Garage is available, price is moderate.
Hotel is new, rooms are spacious with everything that a businessman needs. Free Wifi in the whole hotel including free phone calls to stationary phone numbers ! Excellent. A fitness center is also available, although it could have earlier working hours and a bit better support as a service. Typically you start your day early if you are travelling on business, earlier than 7:30. But OK, I can overlook it.
Food ? Excellent ! Breakfast is very reach, so beware the kg you will gain. In the room price I had for my stay (90 EUR/night) there was also dinner included, I can speak only with superlatives about the kitchen Chef with capital C. The bad side is, having both dinner and breakfast in hotel, that you can barely taste something else in town, and even if you do not, two such meals are (maybe too) reach.
There is no swimming pool. But hey, do you have time to use it ?
Shopping mall is just beneath the hotel, it is worth checking the offer there.
All in all, I stayed there twice and I would always consider to stay there again.
