“We loved the Kovaci Hotel....”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

We spend just one night in Sarajevo and the Hotel Kovaci and loved it...The room was clean and comfortable...The price was a little bit high but the location was very good and very close to the Bascarsi and the restaurants...The hotel is so close to the road and you can hear the sounds of the cars at night but it was not a problem for us. By the way they were preparing to set a AC on the wall and when you go there in summer you will not be uncomfortable...İf you want to stay close to the Bascarsi and center stay there...

The owner is very nice, served us coffee and small breakfast every morning (included in the price). Location is very good, just in the center of old town- 3 min walk from Ferhadija street which is the main pedestrian street in Sarajevo. The only drawback is the room- small and the furniture is more like the one you can find in the student dorm.But if you do not care much about the facilities, and you acctually do care about hospitality and location, than this is the right place for you.

This is a friendly decent hotel but has one major issue. It is right in the middle of an extremely busy area and is very noisy at night! This is compounded by the fact that there is no AC so keeping a window open (esp during August) is essential. The owner is really friendly and I can't fault the cleanliness etc...I would just note that we didn't get a whole lot of sleep during our stay.

Sarajevo is a wonderful, interesting city- enjoy your trip.

This small, clean and nice hotel is very close to the center, you can walk to Bas Carsi in 2 minutes. The restaurants are also very close. For the amount you pay, it's the best place to stay.

We’ve just completed a 2 night stay at Hotel Kovaci. Not a lot needs to be said about the hotel – it was excellent. Very new and modern, and in a perfect location - on a corner of the old town. Although a previous poster here said that breakfast wasn’t included, the owner actually served us a small breakfast of bread rolls and coffee, which was nice. As we were staying in winter we took advantage of the hotel’s location and went back to our room a few times during the day to warm up. One thing I should mention is that the owner doesn’t really speak any English. This wasn’t really a problem for us as the tourist information office is not far away. Overall we had an excellent stay and would highly recommend Hotel Kovaci.

This hotel is brand new, and I believe that the owners live in the first floor--they are ALWAYS there to help no matter what the hour--and that says a lot because I left the hotel for the airport at 4:30am.

This is NOT a luxury hotel which I feel is important to say, but it is steps away from the "turkish center" of sarajevo and you feel like you've found Sarajevo's best kept secret.

Hospitality was a premium here and while breakfast isn't served here, you shouldn't be eating breakfast here, you should be walking out to enjoy Sarajevo's wonderful cafe culture. At 40 euro a night, you're crazy not to stay here.
