Quite ottoman oriented style passion, very simple decoration but wonderful atmosphere, kava will be offered at breakfast and the service is great, the boys at the reception are always ready to answer questions and they always offer their help. It is a bit hidden to find if you' re driving and you will have to pay a parking nearby cause... More

Kandilj Pension is a discovery, hidden among the houses, just few steps from the famous Bascarsija. In fact it is a larger family house changed into a small pension with rooms in two different parts of the building and breakfast room/resturant in the cellar. The design is traditional Bosnian, modest and beautiful at the same time. Rooms are clean, warm... More

I can not say enough about this wonderful pension. I was travelling with my 5 year old daughter, and we stayed at Kandilj Pension for one night before travelling up to Banja Luka, and then for two nights when we came back. The Pension picked us up from the airport, and made us feel so welcome and comfortable - they... More

What a beautiful little guesthouse! I can't say enough good things about Kandilj. It's located just a five minute walk from Bascarsija (Old Town) and a good fifteen from the new town, with really easy access to both (via the Latin Bridge!). It's slight removal from the hubbub of the Old Town make it a pleasant escape from the crowds... More

I highly recommend this charming guest house based on the friendliness of the staff, the location and the level of service. Kandilj has a quiet location, plus a little garden for sitting, and the staff are super helpful. We stayed just the one night and they had a triple room for us and delicious breakfast. The staff went way beyond... More

Kandilj Pension is a small guesthouse close to the old town. Our room was comfortable, but very small. Breakfast was good, with eggs and omelets made to order in addition to standard selections. Helpful and courteous staff.

I highly recommend this wonderful little hotel based on the quality of its staff, the location, value, and comfort. One may find other small hotels near or in the old town (Bascarsija), but Kandilj has a quiet, friendly, and cosy feel. Airport pick-up is a big plus - very smooth/efficient/easy, and Adi, a very pleasant, intelligent young man, gave me... More

We chose this guesthouse based on the good reviews, but were eventually disappointed. Location is excellent, just a short walk from old town. The guesthouse itself is a bit squeezed into other private houses, but this might disturb the locals and not the guests as much. The rooms are rather small (we stayed in room number 4). Numerous long black... More
