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.

I stayed for 4 nights and it was a nice place with a large, clean room. The bathroom was also large with good water pressure. Wifi was a bit weak in the further rooms but still worked. Breakfast was good with a good selection and omelettes made fresh if you choose. Location was great, walking distance to most sights and with a small supermarket nearby. Recommend this pension and would return.

We stayed with our two little kids of 4 and 6 years old for 2 days in Sarajevo. The guesthouse is very well positioned as it is only a 5 min walk from the old town but still quiet at night. The ladies of the reception were very helpfull. Very good shower as well. Value for money!

Our group stayed at this Pension for 3 nights after travelling through the Balkans for 3 weeks. We loved this Pension. The location is great, just a short walk to the old town and a supermarket. The rooms basic but comfortable and clean.. We enjoyed our breakfast in the morning and had no problem with smokers as we were up early and had the area to ourselves. What really stood out for us was the hospitality of the staff at the Pension, they were the friendliest and most helpful we came across in our travels. On the last day of our trip our flight out was at 9 pm, but the hotel let us use our rooms until we departed for the airport at 7pm. If you are looking for accommodation which offers good value and true Bosnian hospitality this is your place.
