We as a group of 6 bicyclists stayed at the Arkabarka. It was a very nice place. The staff was very friendly and helpful, helping us plan out our sightseeing and even helping us hire a 4am taxi (2 of them) for the ride to the airport with our bikes. It's pretty amazing to sit at a table looking over the river toward old town Belgrade and upstream toward Zennum. Darko helped us get our suitcases patched up after a week of abuse (the handle had pulled off on one), Stefana arranged our taxi and did a great job of helping us plan our sightseeing. Wonderful place, wonderful staff. Some of the nice touches, they serve you a drink when you check in, they make a nice breakfast of coffee and a pannini. It's a peaceful place, although I heard that in the summer there are many nightclubs on the river. Dragging gear to the taxi was a bit of a pain because they are in a pedestrian zone, but it's only about 100 meters across a grass field to where the taxi can wait for you.
I will definitely stay there on my next visit.
