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.
