More and more gay–friendly clubs, bars and cafes are opening these days in Belgrade & Serbia as well gay friendly hotels Belgrade.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Serbia may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity are legal in Serbia, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in areas such as employment, education, media, and the provision of goods and services, amongst others, is banned. Nevertheless, households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples.
Belgrade is the capital of the southeast European country of Serbia. Its most significant landmark is the Beogradska Tvrđava, an imposing fortress at the confluence of the Danube and the Sava rivers. The fort is a testament to the city’s strategic importance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires, and it’s now the site of several museums as well as Kalemegdan, a vast park.

1. Square Nine Hotel Belgrade 5* – Gay Friendly Hotels Belgrade
The luxurious Square Nine Hotel is located in the centre of Belgrade, 50 m from the Kneza Mihailova pedestrian and shopping district and 100 m from the Kalemegdan Fortress. Square Nine Spa and Wellness center, modernly furnished rooms, and free WiFi access are provided throughout the property.
All accommodation units feature hardwood floors and paneling, comfortable Treca de Paris beds, Pratesi linen and antique and designer furniture pieces. Satellite TV and Nespresso machines are available in all rooms, along with mini bars and Hermes toiletries.
The hotel’s fine dining restaurant, the Square, is located on the ground floor and serves modern European cuisine. The rooftop Japanese restaurant is located at 7th floor.
The architectural side is amazing, however what makes this hotel unique is the personnel and their approach and attitude towards their job. Everybody was incredibly caring on a level that goes far beyond than what would be expected, even from good hotel employees.
The design of the whole hotel is brilliant. The rooms have been designed with the comfort of the guests in mind. The Hermes toiletries are a very nice touch.
Breakfast is brilliant, the egg dishes are wonderful and so is the Turkish coffee.
Food-wise we also tried Ebisu, the Japanese, on the rooftop – impeccable. The same thing can be said about the room service.
The spa facilities are good too, obviously limited in size but we are talking about a boutique hotel and not a green field congress park construction. The spa employees do a fantastic job too.
Last but not least – the shuttle vehicles are amazingly tasteful.
A green London Cab with cognac interior – including an alcantara roof liner as well as leather-clad handles and a hand-knitted carpet. The tastefulness cannot be described with words.
The second vehicle is a Range Rover in the same colour combination. Extremely comfortable.
To put it in a nutshell: a superb hotel, we will be back for sure! Thanks to everyone once again!
The rooms are excellent here – spacious, with everything you need. The pool is wonderful if you like swimming laps and there is a very nice relaxation area and gym. The restaurants both serve excellent food. The Japanese one does not have a no-smoking area. The other one does but if there are a few smokers it can be difficult for non-smokers, especially as the lobby bar is next to it.
The food is good. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful and remembered us as we came and went. They were also very helpful when we arrived at the train station and found there were no taxis. They sent the hotel car to collect us. They also spent ages enlarging and printing out the public transport map – which doesn’t seem to exist in hard copy anywhere. Highly recommended.
he decor is modern with lots of quirky twist interesting areas whilst maintaining a warm cosy feeling.
The main restaurant serves a nice breakfast and excellent cuisine at dinner,in the summer there is a lovely outdoor sitting area. The second restaurant is on the roof specialising on Japanese and Asian Food, this is the real thing top notch served alfresco or indoors in the colder months.
Square Nine is undoubtedly a very charming hotel with many old fashioned item nicely placed around to increase the attractiveness of the carefully painted appearance. Yet, in my opinion, the most valuable asset of Square Nine are his people. The kindness and care of all employees in their different positions go hand in hand with their professional attitude.
Generally Square Nine is a very nice luxurious boutique hotel, conveniently located in the city center area which makes it a very accessible location allowing you to have the chance to walk around the city and enjoy visiting multiple historic places as well as the lovely various cafes scattered around.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel as a gay couple we did not face any strange behaviour. In fact desk employees were more than nice and friendly.
This is an excellent hotel with smiling and very helpful staff and a perfect location. The minute you step outside from the door you are just in the centre of the main avenue packed up with the restaurants, the shops . The street is lively 24 hrs.
It’s only 15 minutes walking distance to many historical sights like the Belgrade Fort etc….Had the opportunity to stay for 2 nights during our visit to Belgrade. If I go to Belgrade again I will surely stay at the same place therefore I highly recommend to everyone.
The most important feature of the hotel is very close to Belgrade’s major tourist attractions by step. The hotel is already in the heart of Belgrade’s most important Knez Mihailova street. We stayed in a courtyard view room. Although hotel is in the crowded street we rested comfortably, there was no voice. But room was bit small but it is quite normal in Europe.
İ recommend you to have breakfast because the hotel breakfast is very varied and delicious. Advantage of the hotel’s good location, you can find anything what you need easily from exchange office to toothpaste.
The hotel enjoys a very central location on Knez Mihailova, the main pedestrian street. Note that taxis cannot drop you off at the door so you need to carry your bags some 150 meters.
The receptionists were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and spoke excellent English. Restaurant staff were also friendly, and the 1st floor restaurant served very moderately priced meals, with nice views of bustling Knez Mihailova.
The standard room was a bit on the small size, but it was clean and tidy and did, in my opinion, meet the four star category it has been awarded. I had booked a twin room, and the beds were narrow (90 cm) but comfortable. Amenities include a safe, A/C that cooled the room down but was set at 23 and could not be changed, and on arrival, a complimentary 1 L water bottle, which was much appreciated. The water was not replenished.
The bathroom came with a smallish shower cabinet (both overhead as well as hand held shower; water pressure could have been better). The bathroom, however, lacked a proper door. There was a glass door that was in no way soundproof and could not be locked. Something to keep in mind if you don’t travel alone.
I found the hotel good value for money and would be happy to stay here again.

Enjoy Serbian cuisine served in a modern way within a relaxed atmosphere of elegant Two Kings restaurant. SkyLounge, the rooftop bar, offers tasty drinks, signature cocktails and tempting Pan-Asian cuisine served in style.
The hotel is located near Slavija square, a 10-minute ride from the center of town (or a 30-minutes walk).
The hotel is quite new (was opened less than a year and a half ago, in March 2018) and as such – looks very modern.
The corridors at the hotel feature sensors and LED lights which lit up when you enter the corridor, thus creating an almost sci-fi movie effect (plus – it’s a very Green thing to do when it comes to saving electricity).
The room was comfortable, roomy, featured 2 beds, a large TV, a couch with small table, a work desk with a chair, a safe and a LOT of lights.
As for the bathroom – well, we were shocked it did not include a bathtub (just a shower, toilet and sink), and were told there are no twin rooms at the hotel with a bathtub. That was totally disappointing.
Still, the water pressure in the shower was good.
The bathroom amenities were the regular Crabtree & Evelyn products. There were no other amenities like robes, earbuds, toothbrush or toothpaste.
Housekeeping was on and off, and could’ve done a much better job in cleaning the rooms and replenishing the bathroom amenities.
The Executive Lounge is located on the 1st floor, behind a heavy black door.
It is rather small, and somehow poorly lit in the evenings and tends to get quite crowded during the weekends.
It is open from the early morning until 10PM and offers a small breakfast, all day hot and cold drinks and nibbles, some afternoon sandwiches and cakes and a small hot and cold evening buffet with alcohol.
What made this hotel unique for me was the fact that nearly 100% of the staff are locals, extremely nice and attentive and provide a very friendly and casual atmosphere.
The rooms, the fitness area and the spa are brand new, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent and various egg dishes are prepared freshly for the guests. There is even a gorgeous rooftop bar as well, where the view is excellent.
The hotel is located centrally in Belgrade at the Slavija square, where the airport express bus (A1) stops 150 meters away from the entrance.
In summary we have been very satisfied with our stay and we would choose again this property for our future travels in Belgrade.
