This is my second stay at this place - this time a little disappointed. The room was not perfectly clean, the air conditioner AGAIN did not work so the room was cold. The bathroom was relatively clean - some leakage from the shower spread water all over... The location is one of the best, but my recommendation is try to... More

We were staying at hotel Saraj for the New Year because it was the only choice in the package offer. Not so unbearably bad, but far from ideal choice. Except for the lowest price. Interior - worn and old, no luxury. Rooms - spacious and clean, but with a haunting smell of cigarette smoke. In Bosnia and Herzegovina is still... More

I didn't enjoy my staying there at all. They write me to put me in a room with rear view and I found myself in a blind room, smoke-smelling :-( and without wi-fi. They have wi-fi in the hall but when there are more than some people trying to connect it doesn't work. I don't advice to go there, awful... More

Hotel Saraj is about 800 meters from Bascarcija. The view over Sarajevo is wonderful! Rooms are basic but ok. To get a shower we had to climb a very high bath tub, if you legs are not for that you may ask for another room. Breakfast is moderately good. The personnel is very kind and helpful.

If you pay the standard rate of 85 euro per night for a room, this hotel is really disappointing. If you get a bargain of 60, than it is acceptable as you have a nice view over Sarajevo and the reception staff is very friendly. Issues are: -Bathroom is smelly -Shower has no curtains -Worn out floors, old furniture -... More

this is a decent hotel, emerging from the rock actually (this means that you can get a view on the rock or the wall). some of the rooms are renovated some of them are still very socialist style, with furniture as old as the mentioned socials period. breakfast is ok, with some local specialist, but in range of the budget...

For a country that has been ravaged by war, I feel it unfair the comment made that this is one of the shabbiest hotels ever visited and that person should have mentioned that at 20 Euro per night its actually pretty good value!

hotels is average in every way. Location is a bit strange, it is located on the top of the hill facing cemetery on another hill. Also very busy road is passing under the hill. You will need approximately 10 minutes to the city center but twice as London if you are coming from the city. Rooms are basic breakfast too.... More

If you are for short visit of Saraevo, I would recommend it. For the price that you will pay, expect same value. Clean and old rooms without air-condition, simple and average breakfast, lovely and smiley personel, own parking. 5-10 walking minutes from center. Placed in quiet area.
