Carlson Rezidor, one of the largest and most dynamic hotel groups worldwide, has opened the Radisson Blu Old Mill Hotel, Belgrade – bringing Europe’s largest upper upscale brand, world-class style and sophistication to the vibrant, up-and-coming Serbian capital.

“We are delighted to welcome the Radisson Blu Old Mill Hotel to our portfolio. Eastern Europe is an important growth market for our group, and this opening further strengthens our network in the region”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO at Rezidor.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Old Mill enjoys a prime location in Old Belgrade – just a short walk from the Sava River and the train station. Also major historic and cultural attractions such as the Museum of African Art and the House of Flowers are only a few meters away. Behind the impressive façade of glass and stone, the elegant and innovative property features 236 fashion inspired guest rooms including 14 suites – all designed by prestigious Graft Architects (http://graftlab.com/) and featuring wall paintings by Strauss & Hillegaart (http://www.s-h.info/). The floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the city, and all rooms include Radisson Blu signature services like free high speed internet access.

Also the hotel’s Executive Lounge enjoys panoramic views of the city. The perfect place for light snacks, drinks, working and intimate meetings, the lounge is available to guests staying in business class rooms, executive suites and Old Mill suites.

The hotel’s restaurant “OMB Larder + Lounge” offers a unique dining experience; introducing theatre, fun and unexpected elements, and offering modern Serbian menus with a twist. The stylish interior displays carefully selected “talking point” objects and creates a truly memorable ambiance. The entire atmosphere references the mill’s authentic heritage, and combines it with industrial chic. The “OMB Larder + Lounge Bar” serves cool cocktails and is already set to become one of Belgrade’s most sought after destinations.

Business travellers benefit from a large conference room and six meetings rooms on a total surface of 500 square meters – the biggest venue can host up to 220 delegates. All conference rooms have natural daylight, state-of-the-art technology, video conferencing capabilities and free high-speed wireless internet access.
