Very nice and friendly staff. Great location and we had a great view of Sarajevo from our balcony. On the down side is that there was a nasty smell coming from the bathroom and the hair dryer didn't work. There was a spare one in the closet but it meant not being able to dry your hair in front of...

First they put us in room on 3rd floor where windows were low, almost on the floor...bathroom was dirty, and the light wasn't working. We asked for another room. They gave us room 206. That was better but still not great. Some of the lights was broken. Picture on TV was awful, and furniture was old. The worst thing is...

I stayed at the hotel with my husband in January. It's a cozy hotel with beautiful staff. It is placed near the centre of the town. Rooms are a bit small. It was very cold outside but inside the hotel it was very warm, so we had to keep the window open although it was very cold outside. The beds...

An unforgettable weekend in Sarajevo in which we were placed in this delightful small hotel which is minutes away from Bascarsija that is the center of Sarajevo. Bed and breakfast, which is served as a buffet with delicious and good food. The rooms are neat and clean but a little small. I must mention close to the mosque so do...

I had an idea where approximately hotel is located at but it took us a bit time to find it. Hotel is located very close to the Old Town so it is easy to walk anywhere from there - Sebilj, Yellow Bastion, Vijecnica, etc. Hotel was very clean and comfortable, staff very pleasant and friendly and breakfast was really nice....

We stayed here on December 2015. As you might have guessed Sarajevo was rather cold for our taste but hotel itself was very very warm. We literally had a wall of heat in our room. The location is rather central, like 5 mins walk to Sebilj but be warned you need to climb a bit. If walking is an issue...

Everything was ok,maybe even more. Staff was very nice. The room was clean. Good Wi-Fi,nice and comfy bed. The location is very good,because everything is close etc. I'm coming back next time I'm in Sarajevo. My advice is to visit the hotel.

Small rooms (the twin room was like 7-8 square metres), below average breakfast, the hotel is in an urgent need for renovation. Close to the city centre, though but definitely not 4 starts, as it is advertised.
