I stayed in July 2011. After checking in I went up to the room but had to come back down because the card key did't work. The reception kept me wait 45 min because they put priority to receive new guest. The room was extremely small and dirty. The small bed reminded me of the old russian style 1/2 size...

Arguably the best location with respect to down town Belgrade. Main tourist attractions: Knez Mihajlova Street / Skadarlija at your doorstep, Kalemegdan a leisurely stroll. The staff are friendly and can point out any locations of interest, the buffet breakfast included in the stay was great. I"ve taken the transfer option on both times I've stayed, the 15EURO is worth...

The Hotel Balkan is in a great location and has a friendly, helpful staff. Otherwise, it's just any hotel. The rooms were clean, but nothing special. The noise on the street below kept my husband and me up until we closed the window. The self proclaimed "famous breakfast" was a disappointment. There were a variety of foods, but none of...

It might have been a great hotel some time ago but they did nothing in the past few years except rise their prices. Paid 180 euros a night for 9 square meter "room" where it was difficult to move (not to mention having no room for luggage). Really tiny rooms, full of ugly/broken/dirty details, never a four-star hotel ... location...

The Balkan Hotel is ideally situated right in the centre of bustling Belgrade, and has clearly been recently refurbished and updated judging by the new furniture and pictures on the walls. My room was a large double, with a view over the city centre and free broadband wi-fi. It had a minibar, big wardrobe, bathrobe, en suite and plenty of...

I stayed here for 3 nights in Jan 2011. The foyer and Orient Express bar/restaurant are very impressive, the staff helpful and friendly, but the rooms are extremely small with cheap, tacky decor. The location of the hotel is pretty good - just off the main shopping/entertainment area - but overall I was disappointed.

We booked into the Balkan Hotel through necessity rather than choice because we hadn't meant to head back to Belgrade when we did, there was little other choice, even in this price bracket. The Balkan Hotel is very well presented, extremely clean and tidy, but it feels rather cramped. The bedroom is small, with a large bed, but just about...

On arrival at the airport we went met by the hotel driver, and then taken directly to the hotel (it's free If you book the weekend package).
