“Best location, Funky design”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I spent 3 nights at the Hotel Europe in November. The location, right next to the old Turkish market, allowed me to explore the old part of Sarajevo as well as the new by foot easily. The included breakfast buffet was extensive (eggs, fruit, baked goods, juices, sliced meats) and one dinner I had in the dining room was well prepared and tasty. The interior decor on the sleeping floors boasted slanted walls and dark wood panelling. The rooms themselves were small and simple, but clean. Wi Fi was a bit iffy. All in all, the location makes this hotel an excellent choice in Sarajevo.

Spacious rooms with excellent dining and cafe.
Ideally located within the old town, a short walk to the restaurants and shops.
All the facilities were modern and the bathroom had undergone a recent refurb.
Excellent value for money. I would go back there again.
Automatic sensors turn the lights in corodors off and on. This can be a little disconcerting as you are constantly walking towards darkness with lights going off behind.
Booked the airport transfer with the hotel on line which was useful. However, the return trip to the airport was double the price: This was only announced as I was leaving to catch a flight. Spoiled an otherwise memorable experience.

I visited this hotel for only one night but I have to mention first that the room design is fantastic. Some might not like it, but the glass "wall" that separates the bathroom from the sleeping room for me was fantastic. Also the tiles, the bathtub and the bed itself are fantastic. Room sevice is good, food in so so. Do not eat the calamari - the squids. They are too hard, but palenta with mashrooms is good. The hotel offers a parking, which is great because you are in the center of the city, not near but in Baščaršija region. The price is very good, the service is also very good so when in Sarajevo, go to Europa !

Very comfortable hotel with good service. Most importantly it is at the heart of the city in walking distance to all famous sightseeings . In addition to local tastes and cuisine in old town, you can also enjoy Viennese Cafe Becka Kafana which is located inside the hotel.

For the price of this hotel, I was very happy with a recent multi-night stay during a recent business trip. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was recently updated, and was clean and stylish. The breakfast was quite good, and came complimentary with our room. The location is perfect with many interesting sights within easy walking distance. The only downsides were the dark, heavy carpetings and dark hallways; the complicated and not overy functional shower system; and very poor wifi service in the room. The lobby wifi worked better, but the one on the fourth floor was horrendously slow.

Sarajevo is a beautiful city with wonderful people and Hotel Europe is a fine place to stay to enjoy all that the city offers.

Arguably the most famous hotel in Sarajevo. It is perfectly located in the very heart of the city, only steps away from the famous Baš Čaršija and Old Town, where you can find lots of souvenir shops and traditional Bosnian restaurants serving national cuisine.

The hotel was recently completely refurbished with contemporary interior and nice marble bathrooms. The rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel staff is very polite and helpful. Complimentary buffet breakfast is of very good quality.

If you're looking for a great place to stay in Sarajevo - do not look any further.

The hotel has two drawbacks: 1) Wi-Fi is incredible slow, almost to the point of being unusable. :( 2) The shower doesn't have a door, so the whole bathroom floor gets wet after you take a shower.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on higher floors overlooking Begova džamija (Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque) - very nice view...

I just came from a business trip in Sarajevo where I stayed in hotel Europe.
Hotel is a typical business hotel with a perfect location.
Just around the corner is Ferhadiya street and Bas Carsija where you can find numerous bars and restaurants especially typical bosnian national restaurants.
Rooms are very comfort with very large bathrooms and free wi-fi. Very soft mattresses.
Do not hesitate to stay in this hotel if you are in a business trip in Sarajevo.
