I was invited to speak at a conference held in the Hotel Bristol Sarajevo. It was extremely comfortable, and the srongest points were (a) friendliness of staff, (b) efficiency of staff, (c) cleanliness and overall appearance; (d) excellent and free of charge wifi across the hotel, and (e) many other pleasant characteristics.
The only thing that I found surprising (not to use the word 'shocking') was the strict adherence to the apparent 'no alcohol' policy of the hotel. There is not a drop of alcohol to be had inthe entire hotel: not in the mini-bars in the rooms, not in the bars and restaurants of the hotel.
I am not an alcoholic, far from it, an I can survive weeks if necessary without touching a drop. However, when you are dining in an absolutely great restaurnatlike 'The Braserie', part of the hotel, and you get an excellent meal, prepared by a truly great chef, it is kind of a let down to be denied even a simple glass of wine with the meal. For me that amounts to cultural barbarism...
Other than the above single criticism, it is really all good news about this great hotel!!!
