We loved our stay at Pansion River. We had opted for room with River View so we got a nice balcony with a beautiful view where we got to witness breathtaking sunset views over the river. The room was spacious and cosy. Everything was clean. Hot & cold water dispenser was provided along the hotel corridor. The breakfast room was also bright and airy with the river view. Breakfast was filling. The staffs were all friendly especially the front desk staff lady whom was helpful giving us lots of info. It's a nice 5-10 mins walk to the old town where you will walk by the river then along shops. We absolutely loved our stay.

Really great value, fantastic views Slightly tired in places but that adds to the charm There was a do happening on the Saturday which I was informed about at check in with loud music but fortunately I had my earphones and music stopped at a reasonable time Friendly staff Only slight gripe apart from the loud music above was the fact that they don’t accept card payment

Our trip to Sarajevo was made even better by our stay at Pansion River. We had a nice clean room with a great view of the river, and even though the main road was very close we weren't bothered by any noise. Pansion River is only a short walk away from the old town, and there are shops and good restaurants very close by. Walking along the river will get you to a lot of interesting sights. The best part however was the fantastic service; We were picked up at the airport by the owner of the Hotel, and we a had a very interesting discussion about the recent history of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the way. The staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful, and they even bought some low carb snacks and sweetener for our daughter who has diabetes. The reception staff spoke English very well, and gave us lots of advice about what to see and where to eat. Breakfast was good, and it was nice to eat out on the terrace overlooking the river. On our last day we received a nice gift from the hotel, and the owner very kindly drove us to the airport. If we ever decide to return to the wonderful country of Bosnia and Herzegovina again we would absolutely consider staying here again, and definitely recommend anyone travelling to Sarajevo to check it out.

Was very lucky to pick this place for my stay. Great location, wonderful staff, especially lady from front desk. Very nice room with balcony just over river. Very good breakfast. Sarajevo old town is 3 min away on foot. The only tip, if you need reliable wifi, pick rooms from upper levels and ground level has a very jumpy signal.

We stayed in Hotel Pansion River for 4 nights and highly recommend this hotel. Our room was river facing with a deck. Excellent service, sumptuous breakfast and extremely friendly staff. 3 mins walk to Old town. Right in middle of old town yet peaceful ambience. Highly recommended
