We loved our stay at this quaint B&B. We took the bus near the airport and this bus stops just about 2 mins away from Kandilj. It's located among the residential area but just about 2-3 mins walk out and you are among shops. It is also near to the old town. We were given a warm welcome and shown to our room by the staff. Room was simple, cosy and clean. Breakfast was filling and ended with bosnian coffee. You can help yourself to the coffee and tea anytime. Staffs were helpful and provided us with good info. We also used them for transportation to Jahorina. Overall it was a great stay.

We were made very welcome in this small hotel with a B&B atmosphere, 2mns from the old town. Good Wi-Fi, food breakfast and a welcome little courtyard for outside sitting were much appreciated. Definitely recommended!

Great staff, excellent breakfast, good location for Old Town, the cable car and Sarajevo Brewery which is worth a visit. Kandilj is across the river a short walk from the Old Town. There's a supermarket just down the street from the Pension.
