Built by acclaimed architect Stojan Veljkovic in 1929, it became a meeting place for politicians and was rumoured to have hidden some MI6 agents too. Now, the five-star luxury boutique hotel — a proud member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World — welcomes locals and tourists alike to its storied halls. Here business meetings are held over a glass of traditional Rakija as hotel guests are checked-in by the courteous and attentive staff.
Saint Ten’s discrete entrance leads to a bright, swish lobby: pops of colour and mixtures of texture give the space a cosy yet sophisticated feel.
The Saint Ten bar sits on one side of the lobby, its impressive collection of spirits lined up against a mirrored wall. Breakfast is held at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant L’Adresse. A superb selection of local cheeses, sausages, salads, and an omelette station greet guests each morning, as do the amicable servers who offer juice and coffee the moment you step foot inside. The all-day menu draws inspiration from around the globe with dishes such as foie gras with pistachios and jam, vegetable spring rolls with sweet chilli, and risotto laden with saffron and prawns. The room service menu is equally as impressive for weary travellers— dishes like Caesar salad and truffle pasta are delicious and generous in portion.
