The flat is ideal for couples and lone travelers although it can accommodate up to three people if one would sleep on the mattress (a new and clean mattress in full linen will be provided). The only things expected from the guests is to abstain from alcohol and drug abuse and obviously not to damage the property infrastructure. Walls are thick in this building so you can feel very free actually at any time of the day :) I'm very welcoming and flexible about virtually everything based on common-sense and mutual understanding and respect. I offer late check-out (7PM being the standard) based on flat's availability.
My stay couldn't have been better. Alain was an excellent host and seemed very professional. He always provided top-notch hospitality and made my stay very enjoyable. The layout of the apartment is very spacious, and the windows bring in lots of natural light during the day. My stay was quite large at around 28 days, so the comfy bed and luxurious bathroom were quite a joy. I cooked most of the time, and the kitchen had all of the cutlery and appliances I required. Internet speeds in Eastern Europe are considered to be among the fastest in the world, and the wifi here seemed to be well above average, which kept me very stress-free when conducting work on my laptop. The apartment is located in the more historical and exciting part of town, which always made me very happy. If I ever return to Belgrade, I'll surely try and stay here again if I can!
We had a great time staying at Alain place. The place is clean and extremely organized. The flat is in a great location. Alain was a wonderful host. He was very accommodating via email to provide directions and other necessities. He gave us lots of good ideas along our Serbia trip. Thanks for all the tips you gave us and the warm welcome.
У нас не возникло никаких проблем с хозяином, (он, кстати, отлично говорит по-русски) и с квартирой. Квартира, в отличии от стандартных тесных апартаментов реально похожа на квартиру, то есть в ней достаточно места, чтобы чувствовать себя не как в шкафу. Удобное расположение, магазины 24 часа прямо у подъезда. В квартире есть все необходимое. За эти деньги идеальный выбор, рекомендую.
Alain was very friendly and accurate on the information he provided to us. We stayed at his apartment for 1 night and it was great!
We chose Alan's apartment for our adult children- son and his girl-friend (we lived on the neihbour street) We all are very satisfied, the flat is in the very center of the town with everythg you need in the foreign town. Alan is a great host, he met us in the airport and made a fantastic excursion to Vojvodia and monasteries of the Fruska Gora. It was our first but not last trip to Serbia and we definitely shall use this apartment in the future and I can recommend it without hesitation.
Alain was an ideal host. He was very responsive to messages; from my initial query through the vagaries of changing arrival time and remote key access. The apartment location was ideally suited to my 'mission' of visiting the ancient parts of town; the 'Kalemegdan', Sveti Sawa, and the ethnographic and national museums. The apartment itself was as described and shown. All in all, I had a very pleasant stay and greatly appreciated Alain as a very attentive and accomadating host.
Perfect location, great apartment, comfortable price, 100% !!! And Alain was very helpful too! Highly recommended.
