A TRUE CONVENTION HOTEL

LOCATION

Belgrade’s largest convention hotel was built as the Intercontinental Hotel as part of the Sava Centre in 1979. The location next to the Sava Centre is strategic and is today still a very good example of functionality and good planning. With the renovation and joining the Crowne Plaza chain, Belgrade’s “congress valley” is shining once again. For lovers of recreation, green spaces near the hotel are a clear advantage. For guests looking for shopping the most prestigious shopping centre in Belgrade is also close by.

ACCESSIBILITY

The location of the hotel in the congress centre of New Belgrade is convenient and there are no problems with access. Also close by is Belgrade airport, which is just under ten minutes away. In this part of the city you will find most of the major companies and institutions. A large, payable outdoor car park is large enough even with major convention crowds.

COLD STARTER - Architecture and aesthetics

The hotel was completely renovated, including a striking glass facade. One could say that the original design is timeless and on the outside it has primarily undergone stylistic transformations. One can also say that from all the hotels in Belgrade it best understands the organisation of space. When looking at the renovated hotel, it becomes even clearer how much in need of renovation is the adjacent Sava Centre. The interior, especially the lobby, is dynamic and impresses with its clean lines close to timeless minimalism.

WARM ENTRÉE - The staff and the culinary experience

At every step one feels the strong emphasis of the friendliness of the staff. With the offer it fills a gap that had until recently stood out in the hotel-congress market in Serbia. The food is superb, especially conference events catering, such as the modern fusion cuisine, often missing in Serbia. This is added to by a complete philosophy of cuisine with positive local surprises in the Prime restaurant, which beautifully combines Serbian and European cuisines. The selection of wines is praiseworthy, as it is a superb selection of the young and creative Serbian wine scene.

MAIN COURSE – The meetings offer

The hotel has come almost synonymous with the congress hotel genre with its spaciousness, practicality and comfort. Twelve meeting halls on 1,650 m2 are flexibly designed. The largest hall can accommodate 800 guests and is currently the largest hotel conference room in the city. In the congress high season, it is especially popular among corporate event organisers. The rooms come with their contemporary design, appear convincing and luxurious deserve especial praise. They are very well equipped with hotel gadgets and nothing is missing. The hotel bathroom is superb and the Wi-Fi is stable and reliable.

DESSERT – The extras

Value for money – reasonable prices, which positively surprise guests and organisers accustomed to high prices in other cities.

FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES

When the adjacent Sava Centre will also be renovated this will be a truly winning congress combination.

TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES

Endless possibilities of combining meeting rooms with the adjacent Sava Centre.

FINAL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY

The hotel is a true convention hotel that at the moment outperforms the rest of the Belgrade convention hotels. It stands out both in terms of size and functionality of meetings area, and it has extremely quickly become synonymous with being the congress hotel of Belgrade, a hotel that sets new standards and especially for the congress scene of the city.
