Location-wise, Kandilj is a clear winner – a mere 5–15 minutes of leisure walking to many of Sarajevo’s must-see landmarks such as the Tomb of the Seven Brothers, The Emperor’s Mosque, City Hall, House of Spite, Latin Bridge and the Old Town. My room had 3 single beds which, had there actually been 3 persons staying in it, would have... More

Our room was clean and comfortable, though a bit warm. Breakfast was plentiful and staff was very pleasant. One negative point however ,was the fact that staff smoked in a small courtyard and the smoke wafted into our room.

We found this place on a hotel booking site at the last minute, gavin inadvertently booked a different place without aircon-it was 36º! It was so hot that we abandoned this accommodation and found Kanilj, just the other side of the river over the Latin Brigde. The room was clean, bright, cool, quiet and large. The staff could not have... More

The location can't be beat, but parking is a real hassle. A long walk from the apartment, it took two hours for us to retrieve our car upon leaving Sunday AM. Otherwise, the pension apartment suited us nicely. It was clean, beautifully decorated and a walk from the sites we came to see. Breakfast was a real treat.

Clean & well furnished; excellent breakfast with home-made specialities; convenient for Latin Bridge & main tram routes + trolleybuses from Trg Austria (to Lukavica) / Town Hall / Old Town / Brewery; generally quiet (some dog noise during night); slept well & contented (probably as result of brewery pivnica visit); helpful & friendly staff. Don't be put off by neighbouring... More

There is a cozy garden patio in the hotel entrance. Our room was narrow, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast room is tucked below and offers a good selection with homemade omelets. Would be nice for the staff to not smoke in the garden area where guests must walk through to leave and enter the hotel

The pension is located right near the old city center of Sarajevo. The beds are comfortable, all is very clean. When I arrived by car, the receptionist indicated me the location of the garrage and picked me back in his car to the pension. The breakfast is plentiful, there are also local specialities.

I arranged for a group to stay there for several nights. The management was very helpful in setting things up and provided free transportation from the airport. My wife and I actually stayed in an apartment up the hill about 200 yards, which was quite nice. Breakfast was included and was delicious and bountiful - omeletes made to order plus... More

Last year (June.2015) we had a 7 days accommodation at this place. we were two families and had two children.The breakfast and hospitality was great. one of the biggest advantage of this pension was the distance of city center and Bascarsi.

We spent two nights there. Our accomodation was a separate apartment 350 m far from the Pension, where we had to go to have breakfast. The apartment was very tidy, clean and well equiped. People at the reception was very very kind and a young man got on our car and drove us to car park. Breakfast, served in the... More
