Old Mill is located in the urban part of Belgrade, near the banks of the river Sava and the new picturesque Belgrade Waterfront (modern living space with restaurants, bars, shopping center, parks and hiking trails).
The hotel is an architectural, sophisticated building with a rich history. Represents one of the main symbols of Belgrade, it is a combination of heritage of the first steam mill from the 19th century and a specific modern design.

120 years ago, the machines of the first steam mill in Serbia started humming. The old mill, as most Belgraders know it today, is one of the oldest mills in Europe.

“The first Stockholders Association for food processing in the Kingdom of Serbia” was founded in 1901, and the mill was built in Topčiderska Street (now Bulevar Vojvode Mišića
15) in the heart of the industrial zone. The first stockholders association steam mill was equipped with the most modern devices and a marvel of technology, especially from the moment of electrification. It reached its peak between the two world wars.


The old steam mill, a building that keeps the memory of old Belgrade for more than a century, has been declared a cultural monument and it is under state protection. The prestigious Studio Graft from Berlin is meritorious for the
reconstruction, which in combination with the modern architecture of the new hotel and its towers, makes unique entirety composed of historical and contemporary design. The ambitious interior concept encompasses and
enhances existing historic buildings with new materials, colors and shapes, activating the original qualities of cultural monuments and creating a unique visual experience.

In the square there is a modern sculpture representing a Rolls Royce and a “Stojadin” in a collision. Two incomparable dimensions, “time and matter”, have been successfully combined in the story of the old mill, where timelessness prevails over the present moment, and the modern and the old clash against each other.

The location of the hotel is on the former “border” of two Belgrade worlds from 1901: glamour and the working class, which Rolls and “Stojadin” also represent.
