Really, other reviewers? Huh. This is one of those "I'm not sure about trusting TA" experiences. Pros: It is, indeed, very close to the airport. Just walk two blocks to the main road, cross it (there's no crosswalk or light --not sure I'd recommend this with kids), and walk to/past the gate. There were airport employees doing the same thing.... More

I was to stay at Pansion Harmony; it was all confirmed by Hostelworld. Then TravelMed (Who? Why?) took part in the action and queried my debit card. It had just worked and continued to work thereafter. TravelMed wanted my card details by FAX or e-mail, both insecure methods! No way! Harmony then curtly tells me: "You have no booking. There...

The hotel is clean and nice, the personnel very friendly and helpful. Fast WLAN connection for no charge. Very close (5 minutes walk) from the airport. By taxi it takes about ten minutes to the city center or to the train/bus main station. The rooms are very quiet. Overall I can only heartily recommend this hotel.

Very near airport, 5 minutes walking, friendly and helpful staff. Anything you need just ask. No problem if you arrive late or have flight very early morning, Will definitely stay there again on my next exit from B&H.

It really is just a five minute walk from the airport. The service was very friendly and helpful. It is basically an "inn" style hotel, like you see across the Balkans, so expect a little rough charm in the lobby and rooms. But it was clean and fit the bill for the price. I arrived very late but the woman... More

I stayed here 5 nights on a tourism trip. The hotel location is only a 5 minute walk from the airport. Although it is not near Sarajevo’s historic centre the location was practical for my itinerary and for the early flight I had to catch on the day I checked out. There is a trolley-bus stop a couple of minutes... More

This hotel is ideal place to stay for all those having early morning flights from Sarajevo International Airport at Butmir, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Located at a walking distance from the entrance to the Airport, it is easily accessible by foot. Rooms are nicely furnished, with TV and Internet access, and the entire atmosphere combines something of a domestic guesthouse with... More

Lovely hotel within walking distance of the airport, we stayed the night before our 630 am flight, great staff who are very helpful and showed us some local restaurants and the shortcut through the airport secret gate so the walk was only 5mins. Rooms are very nicewith all the expected amenities and also a mmicrowave should you need it.

Sarajevo was just a brief stop on our trip, we flew in on Tuesday night and left very early Thursday morning so an airport hotel made a lot of sense for us. Hotel Octagon is within walking distance of the airport, it took us 5-10 minutes to walk from the terminal to the hotel. We were greeted by a very... More
