A decrepit dump embalmed in an odour of staleness. That is how the Serbian soccer team, one of the qualified countries that will compete for the Golden World Cup trophy later this year, described a hotel in Benoni that was offered to them as their 2010 base camp.

According to Snezana Malusevic of the Plavi, Plavi travel agency, which was quoted by the daily press in Serbia’s capital Belgrade, the three-star hotel Lakes and Conference in Benoni also needs a paint-job, the rooms offer only double beds and bathrooms are tiny.

Plavi, Plavi has the task to find accommodation for Serbia during the World Cup, which starts on June 11 and ends a month later. The agency said that nothing has been booked yet. “We haven’t yet booked Lakes and Conference, because we’re trying to find something better,” Malusevic said. “We’ll send the team there only if they fix what we asked.”

What makes the Benoni hotel interesting for the Serbian team, is that it has a soccer pitch and that it is situated close to Johannesburg (30km) and Pretoria (80km), and this three world cup soccer stadiums.
