From the outside hotel looks excellent, especially at night with big shinning luminenscent name and FOUR stars. Actually, it doesn't have any star. Rooms are too small, with almost no furniture, walls are thin an falling appart. The bathroom is so small you can barely enter. Tiles in the bathroom are old, different, disorderly repaired, toilet leaks, the light does... More

The hotel looks new, but everything is already falling apart. In rooms on third floor, wich are so small i could barely move, the ceeling is about 1,5m low (!). Most electricity sockets don't work, lights don't work, showers don't have curtains (not to mention shampoo or hairdryer) and you are basically washing yourself on top of the tolet (!).... More

PERFECT LOCATION, two minutes from Baščaršija. But... I'm not sure, I think the room number 103was in question, which is located in front of the common terrace, next to exit the next room, and there are only translucent curtains through which anyone can look into the room at any time of the day. The main windows are at the top... More

unclean floor, bed, bathroom. Too small room (hard to get in the bathroom, hard to walk around the bed because of so little of space). Bathroom is without hairdryer and shampoo. Dirty, ugly and small. I dont recommend this hotel to anyone.

Nice small city hotel near the center of Sarajevo. Only 2 minutes walking to Baščaršija. Rooms are very good but noisy especially beacuse is so close to mosque. I recomended this hotel for couples. All staff are very friendly .

Just returned from Sarajevo. So yeah, Hayat is not so bad but the room on the third floor we got at first place was really awful. It was clean but to say it was small would be an understatement. Looks like it was built for hobbits. We changed rooms immediately and the one we got on the first floor was... More

We just returned from Hayat hotel. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Or maybe it was just our room, since photos of other rooms look much nicer. Beside the location and kindness of the stuff, there in not one thing I could say was OK. Room; thin walls (the shower from the next room was as loud as... More

We had an attic room, two windows in the ceiling. Nice views. Bathroom was hilarious. Couldn't stand in the shower.. Bed was nice, towels and so changed and cleaned every day... But we got "upgraded" from hostel to hotel, not sure why... Same price. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Wifi doesn't work in upper floors. There's a nice space... More

We were supposed to get a six person room, but they gave us two split up rooms instead, one of them clearly a two person room they'd squished another bed into. They changed us to a 6 person room for our last night, but by then two of our party had switched to another hostel, so that we ended up... More
