Square Nine Hotel Belgrade
The Square Nine Hotel Belgrade has perhaps my favorite location – less than 60 meters from the car-free street, Knez Mihailova and only 100 meters from the Kalemegdan Fortress. Surrounded by high-end shopping, cafes, and restaurants, this is a wonderful part of town and an impressive hotel! The rooms at the Square Nine Hotel Belgrade are decorated with hardwood floors, paneling, comfortable Treca de Paris beds, linen wallpaper and unique furniture pieces. It is a little modern looking but very comfortable. This is where I’ll be staying on my next visit to Belgrade!
The Kalemegdan Park combines the park and fortress. The fortress overlooks the merging point of the Danube and Sava rivers. In the daytime there are many activities in the park – including clay court tennis! In the evening, everyone heads to the park to walk, play chess, or just sit and enjoy the views.
Lorenzo & Kakalamba
Belgrade also contains numerous markets… like the Pijaca Kalenic and the Farmers’ market, Zeleni Venac. The prices are great and there’s a huge variety of foods. And there are plenty of unique restaurants – like “Lorenzo & Kakalamba” – where you can enjoy fantastic food (and a colorful atmosphere).
Hotel Metropol Palace
The Hotel Metropol Palace was renovated in 2012 and features 2 restaurants and elegantly decorated accommodations with free Wi-Fi. It’s only 400 meters from the heart of Belgrade and overlooks Tasmajdan Park. It’s perhaps the most luxurious hotel in Belgrade and has hosted Belgrade’s most esteemed guests. Metropol was one of Tito’s favorite hotels, where he held many gatherings, attended by A-list guests, ranging from movie stars to leaders of states. With the recent renovations, it has been modernized, but still retains the luxury setting you would expect from this historical hotel.
