Your days in Niš – where Roman emperor Constantine the Great was born – will undoubtedly be spent whizzing from one historical site to the next. So make your downtime count by booking one of the best places to stay in the city. From arty suites to stylish hostels, here are the best hotels in Niš – all bookable on Culture Trip.

Niš, the third-largest city in Serbia, is a destination for cultural exploration. Sights range from the fourth-century Mediana Roman palace to the remains of the Ottoman stone fortress and a Nazi concentration camp. The central pedestrianised quarter is packed with cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and discos – so if you want to be close to everything, a centrally located hotel is the best choice. For transit or business trips, there are several excellent high-end hotels with upscale facilities outside the city centre.
