This is definitely a bit of a strange setup for a hotel, but once you get over that then it's a tremendous place to stay and a great base to explore this wonderful city.
The Hecco Deluxe is basically a tiny 12 room hotel which is balanced on top of a large apartment block right smack in the middle of Sarajevo and conveniently located next to the restaurants bars and culture of the Old Town.
The panoramic views in the restaurant/bar are truly unparalleled anywhere else in the city, but as the other reviews have said this a completely dry establishment so don't expect to have a beer while looking at the view. There are literally dozens of great bars within 5 minutes walk of the place so you won't need to wander far for a drink.
My only problem would have been the reception experience - the guy on the ground floor was nice enough but didn't speak any English (why would he, I suppose) - there was lots of pointing and gesturing to communicate to us that we had to go up to the 9th floor to check in - but when we did get there it was a little bit shoddy and there was no one on reception. We had to wait about 5-10 minutes until someone arrived to check us in. Other than that minor inconvenience it was a great stay.
