We stayed here three nights and really enjoyed it. The property is just a couple of minutes walk from the river and the Latina Bridge and the Old Town. Perfect location. The room was comfortable with ensuite facilities. The breakfast provided was really good. Cereals, yoghurt, coffee, fruit, bread, cheese, fruit juice etc. Then the lady who cooks there asked us each morning if we wanted omelette and it was delicious. One morning there was a type of poppy seed roll cake. Never had it before but it was really good. The people who run the property were all very helpful and friendly. They gave us a free transfer from the bus station and arranged a taxi for us on our return. Sarajevo itself is such an interesting place to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We can

We had a wonderful three night stay at Kandilj. Everyone was friendly, helpful and courteous, breakfast complete (great omelettes!!) and less than 10 minutes to the old town. Excellent prices as well. Very quiet at night. Would definitely recommend.

Staff was great. Kind enough to upgrade us to the bigger apartment. The apartment is tastefully decorated, well heated and has great views. Breakfast was nice, with hot food available. Location was close to old town, good for exploration.

Property is ideally located - just across the river from the old town. Important sights and good dining are easily accessible. Room was spotless. Staff were extremely helpful. Room was simply furnished but had everything I required. My only caution, guests are permitted to smoke in the breakfast room. I was seated well away from smokers but wouldn't have wanted to be next to them. Excellent choice for those who want to stay in a well situated property with character.

Great location, just over the bridge from the Old Town. Friendly and helpful staff. Cosy feel. Wifi. B'fast in an Ottoman-style basement. Stayed as part of a group tour but would recommend and would return.
