The hotel’s location in Belgrade city centre is convenient and one can easily get to nearby attractions, such as the Belgrade Arena and the fairgrounds, as well as palaces, museums and temples. In addition to this, the hotel is also just minutes away from New Belgrade, the city’s up-and-coming corporate area, with its variety of businesses and Serbian government offices. On top of this the airport is located just 16km away.
Hotel Radisson gave the industrial area along one of its main thoroughfares in Belgrade a new lease of life. It is just a stone’s throw away from Belgrade Fair and forms a new event point for Belgrade. Link this in with the work of the planners of the »Belgrade Waterfront« project and its location on the edge of the new town centre will be a part of a completely new image in the future.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
There are few hotels in Europe whose location leans so heavily on a the former industrial heritage. However, through the revitalisation of such facilities we get a high-quality hotel architecture, in which it can at times seem as though time has stopped, whilst at the same time expressing a modern lifestyle. The task of architectural renovation was entrusted to the famous Berlin Bureau Graft Architects, who created a new copyright hotel architecture that excites at every step.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
What a surprise! We have not experienced such a culinary and personal experience in regional hotels for a long time. The new culinary concept is modern and crazily trendy, integrating new taste combinations and food textures of both Serbian and international cuisine. The hotel cuisine’s many promises come through a strictly minimalist menu that is in both Cyrillic and English. Less is more, and Old Mill really knows the balance.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
Radisson truly understands the needs of business and congress guests. Elegant hotel rooms prove that this hotel belongs in the premier league. With the use of materials and the concept of ‘less is more’, it will delight even the most pampered congress guests. The paintings on bare concrete in the hotel rooms, by Strauss & Hillegaart, are really striking in that they are a mirror image of the rooms themselves.
The arrangement of the conference rooms is such that it should encourage innovative thinking of the participants, best exemplified in a special room, ‘Brainbox’, which enhances creativity through its choice of colours, special chairs and general ambience. The larger, daylit congress room can host 220 delegates and is currently one of the most beautiful congress halls in the city. The designers have managed to marry overall well-being with the beautiful old mill’s rooms renovated with a touch of the modern.
DESSERT – THE EXTRAS
A culinary celebrity team – the Belgrade hotel scene has acquired a passionate, dedicated and experienced culinary team in a new hotel that was born under a lucky star.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Awkward access to the hotel, which requires some ingenuity from guests arriving by car.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
Imagine that you find yourself in a house from a futuristic movie. Here the architects have created a space that combines history, technology, art, fun and relaxation, with exquisite cuisine that works to be both very modern but also very traditional.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
Radisson Old Mill took a risk and it has succeeded. It seems they have captured just the right aesthetic balance. Top quality ingredients are never wrapped with ballast and the new space is balanced with the story of the former mill. The result is an elegant concept of an authentic hotel, a cult restaurant and a dynamic lounge bar, which gives a new dimension to Belgrade tourism and sets new standards.
