Our room on the second floor was very small - there was barely any space around the edge of the queen sized bed. Similarly the bathroom was very tight - you couldn't fully open the door without hitting the toilet. Apart from this the hotel was very good for the price, the staff were friendly, the breakfast was good and... More

The hotel was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was buffet and rich. For parking vehicles took care of hotel staff. Also, for their safety. The rooms are big enough for a large bed in which you sleep well. The bathrooms are a bit tight but clean. This price is OK.

This hotel offers best value for money. Very clean, with very good breakfast offer and extremely polite staff. But the best thing is that it will take you only 2 minutes of slow walk to famous Bascarsija.

For 25 euros a night, you get quite a lot of hotel for the price. In general good rooms, sometimes very small (try the 101-102-103 rooms), but always clean, good shower and good beds. Very friendly staff who try to solve any problem you might have. Sometimes very noisy, due to the architecture of the place, so earplugs can be... More

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...
