The Hotel Balkan is a throwback from former, less competitive economic times. The carpet of our tiny room was not clean, the bed covers were not clean, and the bathroom had several leaks, two of which had produced large black mildew spots in the tub. Eeew. In addition, we were there on a warm spring day, and the radiators were...

This hotel is a bit overpriced, rooms are small and the location is quite bad next to one of Belgrade's most busiest traffic joint. the breakfast is quite average. OK for one night but tehre are better places close by.

Have stayed at the Balkan hotel for 4 nights. Definetly the location is brilliant, in the centre and you can walk around in minutes. Rooms are ok, the one I was in can not be called small, but average size. Bathroom also ok. Free wireless internet. My room was also above the street where entrance is, and it can get...

My fiance and I stayed at Hotel Balkan twice in the month of June during our three week vacation in Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia. We spent our first night facing the street that the hotel entrance is on (Prizrenska). The room very spacious, however noisy at night. The second stay (at the end of our trip) we stayed in a...

The hotel is good all around but the best thing about my stay there was that it is in the heart of town - at the start of the central pedestrian zone, and close to the city's best cafes. Airport pick-up was also a very good option!

I did remember the microscopic rooms of Balkan hotel a few years ago and, when I booked the room, I asked the receptionists to arrange a spacious room, which they did - I stayed at a nicely renovated room with soft colours, with an excellent bed. The bathroom is equiped with all modern facilities and even extra-large people can move...

We stayed at the Hotel Balkan for a few days earlier this month and were very impressed. Other travellers seemingly complain about the size of rooms but we had plenty of space for our main activity in the room i.e. sleeping. The standard of cleanliness in the hotel is very good to excellent and the staff are all very friendly...

The location is central, the lounge bar is pleasant, but rooms are very-very small and uncomfortable. Central heating was on in the bathroom and could not be turned off. Rooms can be noisy from city traffic. The bed had a rather soft mattress which was not comfortable. On the plus side, they offer free internet connection.

Good location and very nice view from the window. I was staying on the 5th floor and could see the river and bridges. Grant from outside and in the common areas, moderate rooms and old infrastructure. I was in March - it was very hot in the rooms because of a central hitting. I tried to open the window one...
