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

Stayed for 2 nights this summer and was really impressed by this little hotel. The staff were keen to help, and the services were great they even do free laundry for you! Breakfast was delicious too. The room was very clean, plenty big enough and had a nice bathroom. The hotel is also very well located, perfect for the old... More

This hotel should have been rated 4 stars for all the amazing amenities provided and the location it is at. As many had said, it might be a bit tricky to find it (we were able to find it easily using google map), but be aware that when we last googled, Hotel Safir's location was "hijacked" by another hotel in...

Nice place to stay for the old town, Sarajevo. A bit tricky to find since it is tucked away behind a bread bakery, but once found, it feels like home. The staff are great and the rooms while a bit on the small, side are clean and comfortable. A good deal for the price.

I stayed at this place on several occasions and I have to say I was impressed. Though the location is a bit tricky to find if you're not familiar with the city, it's worth the try. The hotel is not too big so you have the feeling of staying at a luxurious private home, the staff is very friendly(and they... More
