Fortress Apartments
Reviewed November 8, 2012

What a magnificent place! It’s a family business, well hidden in a quiet location near the castle of the town, with really nice and modern apartments. Free wifi, small kitchen, fridge, TV and really great breakfast at a pizzeria nearby.
Absolutely recomeded!

This is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and helpful and the apartments are spacious, spotless, well appointed and quiet. The location is also very convenient as it is just a short stroll to the fortress or the centre of town. Booking direct at www.novisad-apartments.com will get you the lowest rate.

I would like to recommend this place to stay because it's very intimate hotel, family run with very good service. The rooms are very modern and easy furnitures. It has quiet and beautiful patio, and what's the most surprising, that the hotel from the street looks inconspicuously. One more time really worth!!!

We were passing throught Novi Sad. We heared everything the best about Fortress apartments from our friends, so we decided to try it out. Service is very good. Apartments are clean and comfortable, very modern furnished. You don't need to take any kind of transport from apartments to center of Novi Sad. The best thing about apartments is that you have a free parking. What else to say, we stayed a day longer in Novi Sad.

Have been there now several times - so I really could recommend it !
If you are looking for a quite and cosy apartment in a family atmosphere plus good location -
though not far away from the center of Novi Sad you will find the right place in Fortress Apartments. The Breakfast I did not like that much to be honest but you may find a wide
selection at the Fortress Restaurant - good quality and not expensive either.

This rooms in this guest house are very clean, modern and well furnished.
Air Conditioning was very quiet and much appreciated.

WiFi internet is very fast and that was a great bonus too.

The owners are a family of three children and it is nice to have the very happy and friendly children run around in the courtyard.

Beds are not the most comfortable but just OK. Nothing to complain about considering the price paid.

Cable TV is excellent with many English and foreign channels including movies.
Very handy to have an electric stove to make tea/coffee and a very quiet mini fridge!

The only hiccup was the breakfast.
When I was offered to pay an extra 4EUR/day for breakfast I didn't hesitate and prepay for my two day stay.
I could already smell the lovely fresh bread, home made jams, farm eggs and fresh salad and herbs.

To my surprise the breakfast turned out to actually be a a cheese and salami sandwich and a small cup of coffee that was ordered from a restaurant near by.
I have been to hundreds of hotels and inns and never had the experience of a hotel ordering such a breakfast (that you can personally have by just stepping out of the hotel and going to that restaurant yourself. It is 100 meters away), and then charging the guest double what the restaurant charges...

Despite that I warmly recommend Fortress Apartments because of the cleanliness, good value for money and sweet family that owns it.

We booked the Fortress Apartments because of its location - in the old city, just below the fortress and a couple of blocks from the bridge over the Danube (and an excellent riverside restaurant). What we found was one of the most convenient small apartments we could imagine with kitchen and dishes provided - as well as all the normal appointments of a good hotel room. Best of all was the friendly family that owns and operates the apartments. Many small favors, including an unexpected ride up to the top of the fortress from the lovely owner who must have had pity on our aging knees. It was delightful to feel we were making real contact with the people and culture of Novi Sad. We hope to go back!
