The hotel looks tired but our room was spacious enough. Breakfast was good with decent spread. Cafe was a bit busy during breakfast peak hours . Within walking distance to Sarajevo city center. You won't be wowed, but it will be a pleasant stay

This amazing, infamous Hotel is placed in a now, good area of the city. It is only around 15 minutes walk in to the centre although there are many huge shopping malls local. The bright yellow hotel was infamous for the world press and the then,President's accommodation during the Balkans war. The reception and check-in was very friendly and warm....

This Olympic hotel that managed to survive the war intrigues the visitors with both its exterior and interior. The service is satisfying, the rooms clean and the beds comfortable. Wi-Fi that doesn't seem to reach all the rooms is the only weak spot I witnessed. Furthermore, it is located right next to a shopping centre and the tram tracks that...

Sarajevo's most iconic hotel which was built in 1983 for the Olympic Games. During the Yugoslavia war in the early 90s, it was served as base for reporters. Inside the hotel, time stood still with furnishing inherited from olden days with basic renovation for maintenance. I couldn't imagine during the Yugoslavian war, if the employees had to dodge a few...

Huge and comfortable, Hotel Holiday is very central. The hotel may soon be needing some renovation as the decor is somewhat faded. Nevertheless - very comfortable rooms, good wifi, ample good breakfast etc.

Initial impression of this hotel was not very good during check-in as you could tell that this is a very old hotel. Receptionist staff was however friendly and helpful. Unlike many hotels in Asia, this hotel does not come with water kettle, slippers and toothbrush kit etc. For those with sinus or sensitive nose/ lungs, you have to be careful...

I stayed there for 4 nights. The hotel itself is near the center..and the Old bazar is within walking distance. The hotel looks and it is old, but if you stay there just to sleep it is ok. The brekfast is decent but you struggle the first day to find the restorant. Hotrl near shopping centers where you can exchange...

The hotel was built for the Winter Olympic Games 1984 which you will notice on the entrance and the reception (flag signed by J.A. Samaranch himself). At that time it was probably one of the best, however it does require renovation. The furniture in the rooms is old, however the rooms are very neat and clean. The staff is very...

We stayed in this hotel a few fimes. Every time the same- good awerage hotel. Everything was good and awerage -bed, bathroom. cleanness. From the window we saw just the wall but we did not mind. It is close to the airport so you can hear and feel every landing and take off. We felt an earthquake too and it...

We decided to stay at this hotel, as it has historic value, Holiday Inn is a part of Bosnian History. Staff is really kind and helpful, which compensates for desperately needed reconstruction of the interior. Rooms are clean, but you the furniture is really shabby and brown tiles in the bathroom give you the feeling that nothing has changes since...
