Nekada elitni hotel sa brojnim poznatim gostima iz celog sveta bio je simbol luskuznog i hedonističkog života koji je pružao tadašnji Beograd. Hotel Jugoslavija je tada bila centar dešavanja i ponos grada i države! Cilj je bio da se pokaže finansijska snaga i ozbiljnost pri izgradnji ovog impozantnog, glamuroznog zdanja.

Od svog osnivanja 1969. godine okupljao je najuticajnije ljude iz sveta iz raznih oblasti, a prava senzacija bio je dolazak lidera najvećih svetskih sila poput predstavnika Libije Muamera Gadafija, predsednike Sjedinjenih Američkih Država Džimija Kartera i Ričarda Niksona, potom astronaute Nila Amstronga i Baz Oldrin kao i ljude iz sveta zabave – megazvezdu Tinu Tarner i holivudsku ikonu Kevina Kostnera. Možda i najveće istorijsko ime koje je bila gost hotela je kraljica Elizabeta II.

Ovo monumentalno zdanje sa pogledom na Ratno ostrvo i Kalemegdan nekada je imalo preko 1.000 ležaja u 200 jednokrevetnih soba, 400 dvokrevetnih i 23 apartmana i time su bili postavljeni standardi u svetskom hotelijerstvu.

Nažalost, ovom legendarnom hotelu je sudbina odlučila da zatvori vrata zbog političke situacije u zemlji i svetu da bi nakon bombardovanja usled NATO agresije objekat bio pogođen i tako je prestao sa radom te 1999. godine.

Svoj novi početak dočekao je tek 2013. godine, i od tada sa svoje tri zvezdice prima goste na 3 sprata koje gledaju na Dunav. U sklopu hotela nalaze se brojni restorani, saloni kao i Grand kazino, sa veoma pristupačnim parkingom.

The aim was to show financial strength and seriousness in the construction of this imposing, glamorous building. Since its founding in 1969, it has gathered the most influential people from around the world from various fields, and the real sensation was the arrival of the leaders of the major world powers, such as the representative of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi, the presidents of the United States of America, Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon, then astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as and people from the entertainment world – megastar Tina Turner and Hollywood icon Kevin Costner.

Within the hotel there are numerous restaurants, lounges as well as the Grand Casino, with very accessible parking.
