PORT is an apartment in a newbuild in Dorchol. It has a separate bedroom and accommodates up to six people. A dedicated parking spot is available at a surcharge of 10 euros per day.
Snuggled into a modest floor area of about forty five square meters on a sixth floor of an apartment building of a recent date, PORT is a one bedroom apartment with a large open concept living room and a separate bathroom. It owes its high accommodation capacity to the smart use of space. A part of the living room has been turned into an american style closet, which is hidden behind a mirror door, whereas the irregular shape of the bedroom has been utilised in such manner that it actually consists of two sleeping sections (one with a single and the other with a double bed). The two sofas in the living room are fold outs: the two seater sleeps a single person and the three seater sleeps two. This brings about a rather flexible sleeping arrangement : 2+2+1+1 which may be convenient for family travels or groups of close friends. The kitchen boasts fine appliances and kitchenware, wheras the bathroom is the most modest but still practical for its intended purpose. The plethora of luggage space in the pantry is further enhanced by a massive wardrobe in the bedroom, so one might say that storage won’t pose a problem. That cannot be said of living conditions, which may feel a bit cramped at full capacity, so we would not recommend it to groups that need a lot of privacy. That being said we come to PORT’s greatest advantage – its price. As the cost of stay is not dependent on the number of people we wholeheartedly recommend it to those that go on a laid bak trip and a tight budget, as the value received for money outweighs many hostels. Even with the parking spot (which entails additional surcharges).
Frankly speaking, its location is by no means prestigious, but it’s got its advantages. PORT is on the very entry to Belgrade’s port on the Danube, which is on outer border of the very center of the city. A hundred meters away is a supermarket and ten minute walk will get you to Bayloni green market and another three to the Bohemian quarter Skadarlija. The parking spot, albeit surcharged, is still more affordable from on street parking. When all is taken into consideration, PORT is a solid, affordabble accommodation for six people who are not fussy about personal space and want to be close to city center.
