I stayed at the Hotel Hayat during the middle of February. I found the location to be perfect for exploring the Old City and its many attractions. The hotel is not fancy, but I had an excellent idea of what my accommodations would be like after a little research. My room was clean and comfortable, as was the rest of... More

Hayat is a small hotel near old centar of Sarajevo, Baščaršija. Very polite staff, on call 25hours/day. Nice breakfast. The room was quite small, but had TV and one small closet. A big double bed (low to the ground) with wooden floors. Private bathroom. Everything was very clean and cleaning lady came although we were there only for 2 nights.... More

Hotel is really good positioned - quiet little street from which you will get to Bascarsija (heart of the city) in few minutes walk down the hill. Price was pretty good. Rooms are really small and the view I had is at the top of the mosque and walls of other houses in the neighborhood - so, no view. Hotel... More

Although I have read some not so promising revisions, I decided to take a chance and to stay in Hayat hotel, as I was looking for a hotel very close to the old town, with secure parking. And I am extremely happy that I did that. The hotel is very beautiful combination of tradition and modern, since it represents an... More

Lovely staff, clean and warm rooms, scented linen. The only thing I didn't like was sound insulation, I could hear almost every sound in the hotel, so I couldn't take a rest in the afternoon. Also, the bed was a bit uncomfortable.

When my husband and I arrived to this hotel we were given the worst room that we have ever seen, smelly, with no decoration and knee-high windows (literally! the windows start at the floor level and were knee-high, the rest covered by a curtain was a wall! so if you wanted to see something through the windows you had to...

Nice little hotel, kind hotel stuff, great location. We came with a car and it was all the time in the garage. Room and bathroom is not big but location beats all small disadvantages. We had a breakfast included in price, did not have other meals.

Hotel felt new, or newly decorated, staff was nice and talkative and best of all it was a couple of minutes of slow walk to the city center! Breakfast was nothing to write home about given that the hotel itself was small but everyone will find something they like. Rooms were very spacious and had everything you need. Also parking...

We were scared by some comments on this hotel, but we had to change our mind. The hotel is divided in two parts: the new one, a four-stars-hotel, we didn't see, and the old one, the "hostel", where we stayed. There are all the facilities of a hotel, but the price is very cheap. The room was small, but clean... More
