I still wonder how they got 4 stars.
My room was relatively small, the walls must have been very thin because I got awaken when neighbors came back from parties in the middle of the night, and I could hear them when they spoke a bit loud, in their room.
Some of the photos show nice bathroom, maybe what makes it a 4 stars. More than once I got disturbing rose spray smell coming out from nowhere and really not pleasant, the shower could not be used without keeping it in one hand because the only way to hang it was vertically.
All in all I found Belgradians really friendly and considerate. Staff at villa was welcoming at first but after a few days, I felt as if they took less care of "details". E.g., in 7 days, my room was never vacuumed, once a tower was not changed but simply hung out although I didn't show I wanted to change it daily.
This villa is said to not be far away from downtown. Actually it's about 3 km away so it's definitely not 15 min to get there unless you take the bus or your car.
The pool outside is more for fun than to actually enjoy it, you may barely swim when alone and I cannot figure out what would happen when someone is already there, except for playing with balloons.
Not once they would enquire if everything's fine, how you enjoy your stay or if they may suggest you some visit or place not to be forgotten. I did not actually need it but I would have appreciated.
In hindsight this villa is a bit held like for a family, you are tolerated to stay but not warmly welcomed, you don't feel like you're their guest, what I would expect, without falling into the "too much" or the "artful" when seeking for a 4 stars.
