I was there for one night, apartment was very wide and clean. It was modern and in same time traditional. It was 5 min walking from Bashcarshija. I would definitely come back again. Breakfast was also standard, stuff was friendly.

The guesthouse is cute, small and hidden but only 5 min walk from the latin bridge and Baščaršija, the old town center. The staff is very helpful, you have a free wifi in the room. The bathroom was small but clean, the breakfast room is in the basement but nicely furnished and very pleasant.

One of the best hotel where I slept,the location isn't one of the beautifulest but this is the surprise. Clean rooms and a very wide and tasty buffet. The only bad thing is that you have to walk a along an uphill road if you want the apartment but this worth.

Spent four nights here at our home-away from home in Sarajevo. Received a warm welcome and checked into a comfortable double on the third floor. Not the largest room, but was well-lit and had a very comfortable bed. Very clean room and bathroom. Breakfast was delicious! Served in the basement. Eggs to order. Bosnian coffee was a great way to... More

Spent 5 nights here in a very comfortable, spacious room with attractive, modern bath. The staff is very helpful and friendly and speak some English. Breakfast is a real treat with a nice buffet of breads, cheeses, vegetables, fruit and endless coffee. In addition the cook whips up a delicious cheese omelet upon request. The location is great, just 2... More

A very nice, centrally-located B&B about 5 minutes away from the Old Town attractions. Rooms are functional. The rooms on the upper floors are better laid out and have more light. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and speak excellent English.

The hostess and other staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a nice room with windows facing the small courtyard with lots of roses. (Other rooms only have small windows with a limited view towards the sky). There was no desk or table in the room, But you can do your writing in the breakfast room which is open... More

This is a very nice family owned b&b about 5 minutes from Bascarsjia (old town) of Sarajevo. I paid 40 euro for a room with breakfast as a single traveler. The place is quiet (it's a curse finding quite accommodation any where in the Balkans), although I do recommend any of the second story rooms to avoid potential noise from... More

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
