“A nice surprise in the middle of Sarajevo”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The less conspicuous is the hotel building from outside the more pleasant is it from inside. We have stayed 2 nights and enjoyed unusually spacious, air conditioned and very pleasant and clean room with internet access through free wifi connection on embedded PC. The only small disadvatage was the bed - especially the mattress which is one common and abnormally soft. Breakfast buffet significantly exceeded our expectations in terms of variety and quality. Free parking at the hotel building and just a couple of steps into the magic Baščaršija district is also a big advantage. This hotel definitely worths the money you pay.

Although it wasn't perfect, I am glad we stayed here. The location was amazing (I really like Sarajevo) and it allows you to really feel the pulse of the city. My only complaint is that the air conditioning did not work very well, as it was very hot while we were there. But it did work well enough for us to sleep well.

The breakfast was decent, and the free wi-fi was nice. I would recommend staying here, as I thought it was a good value, it is right next to the most luxurious hotel in all of Sarajevo.

Art Hotel has one of the best locations you might dream of when visiting Sarajevo.
You step out from the lobby and step into incredible Baščaršija district.
Guarded, free parking is of a great value in this place helping to cope with your car.

Rooms pretend to be "arty", but indeed are basic.
Beds not very comy, but OK.
Yet the hotel is clean and in good condition.
AC unit is too weak for the room and was not able to cool down the air.

Breakfast was good, with some local specialties.
Very good Wi-Fi service.
Decent price.
Great selection for the city trip in Sarajevo.

Stayed here two nights in total as part of a 6 day stay in sarajevo. Very clean and comfortable. As I was travelling alone second night was given twin beds which my preference is a full bed. Very clean, confortable, and steps to the old city. 10-15 min from airport. For the price I was very pleased.
The restaurant/lounge is moroccan themed and very cool for the evening. (Though not traditional bosnian) good bfast too!

Pros: spacious room, great location, free wifi, comfortable, friendly staff, breakfast included until 10 am (buffet, good variety), good price compared to other options, dark and quiet so easy to sleep well.

Cons: air conditioning unit was weak and took a long time to cool off our room, but it was ok for overnight. We just left it on all day to keep it as cool as possible; computer in the room had Internet but it was so slow there was no point in using it. We had an iPad with us and the free wifi worked really well.

We would probably stay here again.

This hotel is one of the best kept secrets of Sarajevo. It is not as fancy as Hotel Europe (although it is right next door to it), or famous as Holiday Inn, but it is a great little hotel with nice rooms and amazing staff. The location is perfect, regardless if you stay in the main building where an excellent Moroccan restaurant is located, or Villa Wien in the heart of old town's labyrinth of small streets. The staff is amazing, and they have a can do, practical approach to everything, and are the best examples of Bosnian hospitality.

I used to go to this hotel for work. Nestled near the old Ottoman city, near the posh Europa Hotel, it was a haven of peace. I preferred their annex building, a room under the garret and on top of their Vienna Cafe, where the service and the capuccino were much warmer. The hotel is steps away from the pedestrian street, and a few meters away from the famous bridge where the murder of the Emperor triggered WWI. Clean, quiet, well located, and welcoming, a good place to savor the old mystery of the Balkans and be optimistic about peace.

Room Tip: Ask for the annex.
