"Always in the Center of Events" is the slogan of the hotel that has become the first choice of many guests of Novi Sad after being in operation for only year and half. The hotel Centar, situated in the very center of "Serbian Athens", in the vicinity of the central pedestrian zone and most of the city sights, has four stars and its project won the Grand Prix of the Architectural Show in Belgrade in March 2011.
The hotel is authored by famous architect Branislav Mitrovic and his team. The facility has a recognizable exterior and announces the era of a new architecture in the city.
- The hotel project has also won the award of the Novi Sad Association of Architects. Centar hotel is ranked the best on online booking systems by the guests who have used our services. These awards are the proof that the hotel is built in accordance with all the standards of contemporary construction, as well as that Novi Sad and Serbia has got a hotel that can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with world-renowned hotels in all aspects – Lekso Mijic, director of Centar hotel, says in a statement for eKapija.
The hotel interior is of contemporary design, with simple lines and warm colors. Centar comprises 49 regular and deluxe rooms. Guests have at their disposal a direct telephone line, free wireless and network Internet, cable TV, mini bar, safe deposit box, etc.
- Although guests stay for a relatively short time at the hotel, that is, for only as long as it takes them to finish the business on which they come, they want to enjoy full comfort at acceptable prices, which is exactly what they get from us - 30-square-meter rooms, spacious and comfortable, with all accompanying contents for both resting and business. When you add an excellent location to all that, it becomes clear why we are the first choice of many guests - says Mijic.
A pleasant ambient and a beautiful view from the aperitif bar are the best reasons for guests to spend time with their business partners in this space, which is open from 7 AM to 10 PM. Guests can choose from a variety of dishes at the Breakfast hall. Thanks to the room service, guests can have their first morning coffee or afternoon tea in the convenience of their room.
- The main goal from the very opening of the hotel is to create a database of permanent guests. We prepared certain package offers in early 2010. These package offers are valid for all members of the club of Centar hotel. Anyone can become a member for free after collecting certain number of points. We also offer various discounts, depending on how frequently guests use our services. Out of the total number of guests, 70 percent are regular guests. There is also a wide range of weekend offers, which include the hotel accommodation and various tourist tours – the hotel director explains.
The hotel also comprises a congress room with 100 seats, which can be used for the organization of conferences, seminars, symposiums, business meetings, promotions, courses, etc.
As our interlocutor explains, the hotel management is satisfied with the business results, while the data show that 82 percent of the hotel guests are foreigners.
- We can be extremely satisfied when having in mind all the circumstances. The moment the hotel occupancy hits 100 percent, we will be fully satisfied. The aim is that we get the maximum out of the current situation.
As the director points out, people at Centar hotel are always up to date with the innovations in the hotel industry.
