Except it's location and the outside impression, everything else with this place is wrong. Room is tiny as well as beds, rugs are filthy and the bathroom is old, with crooked tiles, hair in the sink, and bathtub is dirty. It's an outdated design, OK, but they really should pay attention at least on cleanness. Breakfast was cold and poor... More

We were a family with small children that chose this hotel because of a good deal we found online. However, with some additional charges (extra bed for 5yr old) we ended up paying what we would have paid in a higher class hotel. There was a heater in our room. There was an a/c but it was not heating so... More

This hotel is in the very centre of Banja Luka. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are in desperate need of redecoration and updating, but they are comfortable enough. There is some outside noise, although I did not find this a problem. I would happily return to this hotel.

Banja Luka has a wide choice of hotels. If you can, avoid Palas Hotel.Staff at the reception is OK. But the room was untidy with cables across the floor and restrict movement. The furniture is old and worn and needs a thorough renewal. The bathroom was not clean, with dark spots on the board for storing toiletries. After I briefly... More

I stayed in hotel Palas for a night with a group of professionals for a day-long meeting in December 2013. The "conference" room was rather dull and a bit cold. The bedroom was also cold and not super clean. However, this problem could be overlooked if it wasn't for the blaring music from the next door disco until 3 AM.... More

Ok, location of the Hotel is great, but that's the only good thing about it. Hotel is not maintained very well, rooms are old and the floor was filthy in my room. Breakfest is the worst part of the stay, as the offer is very modest and limited - only a little bit cheese, cold eggs, cheap juice, etc. Wi-fi... More

Stayed here with MSL Tours (see You Tube 'Bikers in Banja Luka') First time any of us have been to Bosnia and found it to be a very poor country, great people but I suspect their expectations are not as high as ours. Big Hotel, not very clean, small rooms no facilities, row of bars outside offering various snacks etc.... More

Good location but nothing else good about the hotel. Everywhere stinks of cigarettes, bare wires hanging from wall, no plug in basin, toilet seat loose, extractor fan broken, shower doors don,t close properly, food inedible & stains on the walls. A very run down hotel.

First of all the staff of the hotel is very friendly, but: - the music of the night club in the basement of the hotel is very annoying, because even in the third flat it is very loud all night long! - although I've been looking for a non-smoking room there was an awful smell of smoke in the whole...

Hotel Palas is located in the very center of Banja Luka and is very easy to get around main sights in the city. Staff of the hotel is very pleasant and friendly. It is older building and rooms are furnished in that manner but they are clean and comfortable. Main reason of my stay in this hotel is its location,... More
