I made an error in my date and the manager was so helpful to make me feel not as stupid as I did. The room was very comfortable and had black out curtains. The bathroom was well stocked with amenities. Overall very clean. I still have to give special thanks to the manager.

On edge of old town so great location. Very good price and incredibly helpful and delightful staff. Would definitely recommend. Probably the best value hotel we stayed in our month in the Balkans. Room has fridge with contents included plus transport to and from airport or bus station.

I cannot rate this hotel highly enough, everything was great, and the perfect choice for our Sarajevo stay. The main positive was the staff, all very friendly and so welcoming, always smiling and taking the time to chat to you and make sure you are ok. They will answer any questions you have on Sarajevo or Bosnia and they made recommendations for restaurants. We really liked the free mini bar, the free shuttle service (to and from the airport, plus they also took us to the train and bus station), also a huge thanks for doing our laundry, again without charge! Wonderful service! The room was nice size and was comfortable and clean, the view was only over the back of buildings, but not an issue for us, you do not spend too long in the room anyway when on holiday. Breakfast area was nice, again with friendly staff. The buffet was not too extensive, but more than enough for most peoples breakfast needs. If you are searching for a Sarajevo hotel, I promise you will not be disappointed by choosing this one, I hope we can go back there one day. Highly recommended!

The hotel has an excellent location right next to the old city. It offered free airport transfer, which was particularly useful and reassuring for a late night arrival. The room was clean and spacious, and the shower was powerful and hot. The breakfast was quite nice, and Bosnian coffee was served on request. The reception was particularly friendly and helped me to make a few local calls.
