A four-star hotel, 88 Rooms, located in Takovska street at the location of former Takovo centar. The hotel has seven floors, on 3.000 m2. As the name suggests, the hotel offers 88 rooms and suites.

The third-ranked went to the arrival of Constantine the Great to Belgrade. Although we have still been waiting for the official promotion of the Constantine the Great hotel, located at 27. Mart street, there is no doubt that there is interest for it at least according to eKapija’s readers’ interest.

In early March, in famous Belgrade quarter, Savamala, Jump Inn hotel was opened. Located in the building from 1924 which is protected by the state, the four-star hotel became a new symbol of this part of the capital. Jump Inn hotel, at the corner of Zagrebacka and Karadjordjeva streets, is a part of Triple Jump group set up by former Yugoslav Olympic player, Milan Spasojevic. Therefore comes the inspiration for the hotel name – jump in the hotel and the facility jumped in the fourth position of our ranking list.
