The brilliantly contemporary ArkaBarka Floating Belgrade Hostel is one of the most amazingly designed properties in Serbia. It’s situated in one of the most beautiful parks in the Belgrade, making it perfect for taking advantage of the free cycle hire and burning off that free breakfast they offer. The beauty of the ArkaBarka is being able to feel relaxed in the centre of Belgrade while being surrounded by nature and peace. If you want the hustle of the city centre it’s just a 20-minute walk away past the many floating cafes and restaurants lining the banks.

Located next to the River Kwai Sam’s River Rafthouse is an authentic building surrounded by beautiful scenery. You can spend your days swimming in the river or sunbathing on the purpose-built platform. The floating rafthouse has air-conditioning and hot and cold showers to keep you fresh. There’s an on-raft restaurant serving Thai and Western cuisine. You’re just a mini bus ride away from Bangkok, 130km west.

The LogInn Hotel, located in the centre of Stockholm, is within walking distance of all the sites of Stockholm. You can enjoy beautiful views over the city and city hall. There’s an outdoors bar on the deck for the summer, and in winter enjoy your snack in the indoors bar. All the rooms have free breakfast, showers and toilets. There’s an easy car park just eight minutes’ walk away in the Gamla Stan (Old Town).
