The Socialist Standard
Hotel Vojvodina is Novi Sad’s standard socialist-style hotel, although the building itself, I believe, was erected in the 1840s. I unfortunately didn’t have the opportunity to spend the night here, although I did try. There was some sort of festival going on in Novi Sad, and the rooms were booked up, but the man at the reception desk was kind enough to dial up (on a rotary phone!) another private hotel and arrange accommodation for me there. The interior (at least the dining room and the reception) had the same sort of worn but “was at one time luxurious” feeling, with dark wood and carpets, and the hotel’s restaurant looked quite fancy compared to the other restaurants I saw in the centre of Novi Sad.
Unique Quality: As I said above, I didn't actually get to stay in this hotel, which is a shame. However, from the look of the dining room and the reception, I'd say that the biggest draw is staying in a piece of history, much like the Hotel Moskva in Belgrade. This is the last of the best stuff from Yugoslavia, so enjoy it while it's still around!

The Oldest Hotel in Novi Sad (I&V)
Hotel Vojvodina is the oldest hotel in Novi Sad. Although a bit rusty and more expensive than average, the nice and clean rooms, and its position make the hotel very good choice for stay in Novi Sad.
In the promotive leaflet there are a few data about the hotel history: "The building of present hotel Vojvodina was built in the year 1854, at the place of the Heil brewery. It was named Empress Elizabeth and between the two wars it was called Queen Maria when it had 75 rooms with warm and cold water. With its architecture, its compositional characteristics and decoration elements, it ranks among the most outstanding works of bourgeois architecture. The hotel has 61 rooms and 117 beds."
Unique Quality: Hotel Vojvodina is located in the very centre of the city, by the City Hall.
A clean, comfortable room with a really good shower!
Unique Quality: I suggest that, if you want to stay here, you get a friend to go in and book for you.
I get the feeling that the staff would rather say they have no rooms so that they have less work to do...
