My stay in the hotel lasted for just over a week. During the week I enjoyed the place, though the view from the window could be better and the bedsheets could've been changed at least once. Also I had to ask for toilet paper each and every time and my mascara and pants seemed as if they had been tried... More

Great location - five minutes from the Bascarcija bazaar and old town, nice rooms and good (free) breakfast. Staff were nice, funny and helpful. It might take a taxi driver a while to find it the first time, but then you get them to drop you off near Bascarcija and it's a very short walk. The location is really good,... More

I believe this was my third stay in this small hotel. This time, I was given a card key which I could use to open the door, and I realized I did not see anybody at the reception often. My room which I stayed before has not changed much. Twin beds, bathroom, kitchen, a big closet, TV, etc. Wifi works... More

At first sight, it seems a small hotel. But, the rooms are comfortable (I had the n°4), the people there are nice, allways having a smile for you, readyt to help you... I had the feeling to be in a family. And of course, it really near the heart of the old town

We were pleasantly surprised by the bright and modern decor we found at Hotel Safir. In a small amount of square footage they managed a small kitchenette as well as a two beds, a desk, and a cute little bath. There were also some skylights that were strategically placed to let in some additional light during the shorter fall days.... More

I spent very little time here, but this is a great spot for a base if you are in Sarajevo. Conveniently located, with friendly and helpful staff and rooms which are very nice and clean, just a bit spare. My only complaint is that the shower was missing part of its door and was quite small, but other than that... More

Perfect location. One min away from pigeon square yet very quiet at night. Some say it's difficult to find, can't agree: Sarajevo is easily navigable on foot, I never needed a map since the second day I was there. Just remember to turn right into the small alley when you see the big supermarket on your left across the street... More

The hotel is a little 'tucked away' but we located it quite readily being less than 2 minutes by foot from the Bascarsija tram stop. The location and external appearance of the hotel are initially a little daunting but inside everything is clean, modern and comfortable. The bedroom and ensuite were spacious with ample storage space and in good repair... More

I will make this short and sweet. First make sure you know where this place is. The location is good, right across from the Old Town, but it's tucked away and very difficult to find. If you have to ask a local where it is, good luck! Second the hotel staff is nice, the hotel is clean but both our... More
