Eastern Europe's hotel scene keeps getting hotter: Karisma Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of the Allure Caramel by Karisma in Belgrade, Serbia. This property is Allure Hotels’ first in Europe and third within the brand’s emerging portfolio of boutique city hotels.
Ruben Becerra, vice president of corporate affairs & business development for Karisma Hotels & Resorts called the opening a "significant milestone," and noted that the property's location in Belgrade (and Europe as a whole) would boost the brand's profile.
Allure Caramel (formerly The Hotel Admiral Club Belgrade) was originally built by the city’s former mayor in 1927. Today, the hotel's style is influenced by the Russian Empire, French Empire, and Italian Baroque. Reminiscent of a medieval castle, the hotel’s ceremonial entrance has classic columns, ionic capitals, balustrades in wrought iron, tile ornamentation windows, and sculptural ensembles by sculptor Zivojin Lukic.
The suites have antique pieces to honor the property's history. Foodies will want to check out the Glass House Restaurant set in the gardens adjacent to the hotel. Other perks include an Aromatherapy & Pillow Menu, complimentary Wi-Fi and an iPod docking station. Guests get a sweet treat upon check-in, special selection of artisan chocolates presented on breakfast as well as dessert menus; chocolate wine pairings and chocolate cocktails; lounges serving sushi, cocktails and wines by the glass; and concierge services. Nice touch: Shaving cream, razors, toothbrushes, and combs are included amenities for travelers who may have left behind the essentials.
Located in Old Town within walking distance to the Bohemian quarter, guests have easy access to the city’s oldest historical landmarks, many art institutions, numerous national and international conferences and fairs, and plenty of theater, film, music and other year-round events.
