“Faded charm”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

The hotel is in an excellent location, directly opposite the famous Moskva Hotel, but considerably less expensive. On arrival the man at reception was friendly and helpful and the check-in was speedy and efficient. We were given our room keys, the state of which hinted at the jaded rooms that lay in wait upstairs.
We were a party of five, utilising two double rooms and a single. While one room had a rather distracting smell, the other two were just fine, although in need a of a bit of 'investment'. The air conditioning worked and our rooms, situated at the front of the hotel, enjoyed a fantastic view over part of the city. The wifi also worked, although the connection relied on the the usual 'hotel technique' of lying on the floor by the door wearing just a towel.
An important part of any room is the bathroom. This was clean but in need of modernisation. The only inconvenience was that the shower, when used, tended to flood the entire bathroom floor.
In the morning, a visit to the restaurant for breakfast (included in the price) is worthwhile. Breakfast is a fairly hearty selection, complete with bacon and scrambled eggs. The tea is probably best avoided, so it is a good idea to bring your own tea bag, for which a friendly staff member will happily give you some hot water.
In conclusion, this is a good hotel, albeit with an edge of faded grandeur. It was once an even better hotel, and probably will end up being refurbished in the usual bland way that is so common. There is really no reason to stay anywhere else, as at 30 euros a night, this is perfectly fine. Stay here while you can, as I can't see this hotel remaining like this for long.

Room Tip: A room high up at the front avoids street noise yet offers a good view.

The staff here is excellent and friendly and always know which room you are in. The room service never tries to come in while you are there, they work around your schedule. The breakfast is full of salads, fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses, breads, eggs etc. This hotel is everything you need for exploring the city. A healthy breakfast, the best location in the heart of Belgrade and a friendly smile upon return.
I see above that others say the rooms are small. Who hangs out in their room? And they are twice the size of the supposed 4-star Moskva Hotel across the street whose staff is so rude I walked out of there (luckily) and found this gem, Kasina.
It is quiet throughout the night and the elevators are fast and always working (unheard of in Serbia). And at like $30 Euros per night? You just can't beat this place. I will always come back here.

Room Tip: Ask for an outside room. I never asked for one but always got one as there are many. These rooms a...

I stayed here in April 2013. While the location was perfect (in the center of Belgrade), and breakfast was good, overall, hotel is very old, never been renovated for the past 10-20 years. Internet(WiFi) was available only in the reception area, and it was slow. However, if you are planning a short stay in the center of Belgrade with cheap rates (EUR 30/day), then this hotel may be the best choice for you.

Room Tip: Backside rooms are sunny and less noisy (especially upper floors).

It has one of the best locations. But the rooms are small (once it was spatious). I doubt in their cleanliness. Been there twice due to conference purposes and after second time would not come back. Honestly, I do not remember the breakfast and that.

Hotel is in the middle of the city center, with friendly staff.
Nevertheless the rooms are very outdated, no value for money. Outdated bathroom (not really clean), old furniture, dirty carpets and wool blankets. WIFI only works in the lobby. Mice in the lobby and breakfast room. I would not recommend this hotel to others, especially since there are many other (very good) options around the city center for the same price range.

I was a walk-in guest, extended my stay day after day totally 3 nights at single room Euro 32@ with breakfast. In my 15-day Balkans trip, the room of this hotel is the poorest but at the same time this hotel is the one I have stayed longest somehow. That's life, ha!

Let say something good first:

1. Excellent location at city centre
2. Excellent price. I ever enquired the hotels around eg Moskva, Balkan, either full house or Euro 120. The budget Hotel Belgrade further away is Euro 35.
3. Great generous buffet breakfast.
4. Kind and helpful front desk staff
5. Three free computers at lobby, speed ok
6. Reliable wake-up calls (it is the real person staff calls you up)

With all these excellence, you must understand there must be something quite bad: Room very tired, things torn, dirty with stains on carpets and walls tiles in toilet. The bed and pillow are clean though. Each room has its different kinds of defects e.g door handle broken, TV remote unresponded, torn towels, light bulbs burnt out, sunlight invades since early morning through the curtains, unable to turn the water tap mode into shower mode which requires pulling up a button but that button is loose and soon drop down (I therefore folded a paper soap packing and inserted in between the button slit, keeping the button always up in position so shower got).

All the above bad are not the end. This is only the base bread of the pizza. On the top, there is noise and/or bad smell. I was given the worst kind of room for the first night. It's room 614, single room without air con facing some noisy generators/ air con machine. When I opened my windows, I got noise and couldn't sleep. So, I closed the windows, yet became hot and sweated, couldn't sleep either. The row of rooms -12 to -17 (and I suppose probably -01 to -04, see the floor plan posted here) is facing those noisy machines.

I changed to room 606 for the other nights. This (and rooms on same row -7 to -11) faces the main street with fabulous views. Once I entered, I got bad smell of cigarette. No, to be precise, it is old cigarette bud. This room has air con but I didn't use it as I kept fresh air in to blow off the bad smell.

After balancing exercise, I would say this hotel is still a choice provided that you pick the room not facing those noisy generators or otherwise the room bears air con. But of course, the torn and not so clean condition of the room can be quite depressing to many people. For myself only, about the torn towels stained tiles etc, I don't have to marry any of them right!?

With 3 night stay, I have formed a little passion for this hotel somehow (perhaps because of the diligent and honest front desk staff who I believe have served here for long time). I try to appreciate the things seen here. This hotel is trying to survive and does provide a choice at very low price. It should have understood that it can invest some money to renovate and then charge 4 times higher like the Moskva Hotel right on the opposite side of the road.

Room Tip: avoid those rooms facing noisy generator/air con machines or otherwise make sure there is air con so...

Hotel Kasina is situated in the centre of Belgrade, near Knez Mihajlova street and the location is really great. The staff is nice and helpful, but the hotel is terrible. Furniture is old, plumbing was broken, bed linen and towels were clean but torn, floor carpet is ancient and full of bumps. Hotel has a funny smell, probably due to the fact that it is old and not cleaned for some time. Breakfast was so-so, coffee was terrible, pastry was good.
