Hotel Slavija1.0 out of 5.0

Not taking into account that the temperature would be in the 90's, the room has no air conditioning. So a Catch 22 situation of opening the window against a constant background of noise or sweltering with the window closed prevailed. However, for about thirty pounds for two nights, with a Spartan breakfast thrown in, one shouldn't complain too much even though I am!
Yes, little money has been spent on it, but so so cheap for an ensuite central hotel room in Eastern Europe. The receptionist was helpful and late check in was easy. The other useful feature was that the hotel was very close to the minibus transit from the airport on the square (just make sure you have the address to show the driver - our one it was the last stop). The hotel is actually just off the square near the little tobacconist kiosk. There is McD open late for refreshments. Unfortunately the tram works made noise outside the hotel overnight, though thankfully managed to drift off to sleep. The shower unit looked old and had a faulty mount. One reservation I would have is that being a tall hotel, I don't know how easy it would be to get out in the event of a fire. 5* I give relatively few. Has to be a place I would either go to regularly and consistently provide a cut above the rest, or a place that I may have visited just once and offered a particularly memorable experience or be exceptional value. 4* is a place I enjoy and would tend to go back to if the opportunity was presented. Probably a good level to aim at for a catering/hospitality business, as too many 5* suggests you may be underselling/undermarketing. 3* places - are adequate and I would sometimes go back to but other choices are generally preferred; normally there is obvious room for improvement, usually in the offering and value. 2* places - have issues that make the experience below par, 1* places - hope I don't end up in one of these!
Despite prepaying I was relieved to get out of this revolting run down hotel that should be condemned. Electric sockets loose and bad connections. Broken old cupboard where tv used to be. graffiti and filthy walls when using tatty old lifts. Broken toilet and shower unit. It looks ok at reception area but as soon as you enter the lifts at reception area, the tat starts. I used stairs once and some of the floors looked unoccupied for years. This hotel can keep its money, I'm out asap.
This hotel is old and need a refurbishment, but it is in one of best locations in Belgrade, prices are low and it is much better if considering apartment or hostel - all rooms have private bathrooms and it is clean. Price usually includes breakfast and tax. Facilities can scare you, but it is clean and safe and staff is very cordial, smiley and highly professional and efficient. I stayed there twice, once in October and once in August and it was overall pleasant. There is no AC, so if going in the summer ask for rooms on lower floors and leave the curtains closed, window open and you will keep your room cool. Internet is not solid, but works. Breakfast could use better variety of local cuisine, but overall good.
Great location; easy to walk around and see lots of things, close to many restaurants from budget eats to finer dining. Right on the circle of the fountain, which seems weirdly popular with the locals, belting out Michael Jackson tunes at night. The staff were funny and friendly. It is an old communist-era hotel, so you will see the old rotary phones and the elevator makes a bunch of noise, but our stay was just fine. Room was clean, the free breakfast was okay. Only 1.5 blocks away from the Tesla Museum. We were happy with our stay; it was cheap and convenient and there was guarded parking across the street.
This hotel is affordable. If you opt for a budget room, as I did, then there is no A/C, and the furniture is old, and the curtains are too small for the windows ... If it's hot, open the window and close the curtains all day and your room will be cooler. Opt for a higher floor further from traffic noise. Breakfast is the same every day and is available from 6am to 10am. For the price I paid I thought it was fine.
The hotel is well located, not far from some interesting places to see. The rooms were clean, which is important....the rest - well, it IS a one star hotel, so you don't really expect much. In that sense, it didn't impress and it didn't disappoint....in short, it was average. Oh, and forget about reliable WiFi....it's sporadic at best, even in the lobby.
Is this what hotels were like in the good old days of Yugoslavian Communism? This hotel doesn't even have proper flush toilets. Instead, there is a tap that you turn behind the toilet and water flows into the bowl. Anything floating is not taken away, it just roils about. That's weird but strangely awesome. The elevator does not have an interior door. You can reach out and push open the outer doors as they went by. I didn't test it but that's also weird and awesome. The wifi was non-existent in the rooms and terrible in the lobby. That's not weird, it's annoying, more annoying than the weird toilet, the weird elevator, and the worn out decor. This place needs to be purchased by Russian oligarchs and refurbished. But all of Belgrade is hoping for that to happen so get in line Hotel Slavija. In the meantime, don't change anything except the wifi. That really needs fixing.
Hotel Slavija has a rely good location in Belgrade but accomodation is very very poor with old furniture. It needs renovation. The staff is very friendly, breacfast is good. Wi-fi works from time to time. It has its own garage and you don't need to care about the car. Taxi waits infront of the hotel and it's chip.
It is an old style hotel from the '80th. A specific communism era which is old furniture in the rooms. The breakfast was great. The staff is nice. The hotel is close to the main sights. It is wifi, exchange office
