These are the most definitive 5 hearts of all, given by the 5D Sensograph during the last year to hotels visited by placescases.com.
Saint Ten is not just a boutique hotel, but a remarkable experience to stay in luxury, modern atmosphere and coziness, be serviced with a warm smile and caring attitude. It is no coincidence that it is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World selection.
I booked a family suite for a 4-member family, which consisted of 2 interconnected rooms with a common foyer and a central front door. The comfort of the rooms was unique- wide, cozy, each of them fully supplied and set for 2 guests. On top of that, there were welcome treats. See further in the review what they were and read also about other interesting surprises.
…. The elegance of the interior is impressive. Soft carpeted floors, ambient lighting, handmade armchairs, soft and comfy lining behind the beds.
…. I’m going to point out something that hasn’t happened to me in a hotel for a long time. The parent’s bathroom was inside the room, separated by glass only. In the children’s room, one could cover the with a curtain from the outside, very necessary for children with differing gender, but in the adult bedroom there wasn’t such an option. Only the toilet was with frosted glass. The sink though, was outside the bathroom. All this was not bothering us, but for other couples this could be a problem;
…. The shampoo, gel and lotion in the bathroom were from the a boutique English brand, The White Company, the Noir series. Very nice!
…. Exceptional service- instead of standing at the reception desk to wait to be registered, we were kindly invited to sit on the sofas of the lobby bar and the receptionist came to us to explain about the hotel. The staff responded incredibly quickly to anything. There is valet service for the guests’ cars. The latter are parked in an indoors garage. If you prefer to use taxi, the reception desk will call one for you. At breakfast, if you prefer to be served, instead of collecting food on your own, you can order a waiter to bring you whatever you want. It is obvious that the staff was well trained and competent in the matters of customer communication;
…. The softness of the hotel textiles- very comfy and pleasant sheets, towels, bathrobes;
…. You can regulate your 2 air conditioners in the room as you like and do your temperature to your liking;
…. Housekeeping tidied up the rooms 2 times a day, morning and evening, and on the second we were being left with water and some treats for the whole family;
…. Coffee maker, compliment coffee and green tea capsules in the room;
…. The mini-bars in both rooms were free. This may be extra for suites only. Of course, it consists only of soda and water, but still the customer approach makes an impact. Apparently, the management has calculated very well that the customer does not have time to drink all the carbonated and non-carbonated drinks in it, so the cost is in controlled amounts, but the effect is dramatic. The children were mega impressed and enthusiastic to empty its contents but succeeded to drink only 1 or 2 bottles of water and 1 Coca-Cola.
…. In the lobby and restaurant, you can hear quiet samba, pop and other genres in the jazz arrangement, as well as classic jazz instrumental music.
Movie watching time: 3:01 min.
…. The aroma of cucumber in the bottles with water, left for us by housekeeping;
…. Truffle in handmade chocolates with a garnish of dry fruits and nuts, as welcome treat in the room upon arrival;
…. The amazing aroma of authentic traditional Serbian charcuterie and cheese at breakfast;
…. In Serbia, smoking is allowed indoors, but here, firstly, there were not many smokers, even some of the guests, obviously from Europe, were going out for a smoke, maybe by habit, and secondly, the ventilation was very good- cigarette smoke wasn’t felt much.
…. There wasn’t huge assortment at breakfast, but it was very well selected, and the products were of great quality. Only, a little more vegetable or just salads with cucumbers and tomatoes could be provided;
…. The drinks at the lobby bar and the cocktails were very good- a true abundance of great variety of wonderful Serbian rakia, single malt whisky, bourbon, brandy and cocktails;
…. We were left with crispy macaroni every evening by house keeping.
My recommendation on Saint Ten is undoubtful. I think this is the best hotel in town. I would love to return there again. On top of that, it is considerably cheaper than hotels in big European cities with level of comfort and service well below this, lacking the extras and conveniences Saint Ten offers.
I think Saint Ten Hotel is an awesome jewel in the treasury of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
