Very nice, clean and comfort hotel. Staff is friendly, kind and always trying to help you. Especially Dženana helped us so much. Thanks a lot for all help. I highly recommend all travellers to stay in Halvat GuestHouse.

My wife and i just stayed for a couple of days at Halvat, however we felt like at home from the first moment. Ema welcomed us with joy she was so kind and helpful to make us feel comfortable all times. The hotel was so close to baschcharschi, old town. The hotel was very clean, very cute that it is impossible to feel not like home. We returned to istanbul now but we left some part of us there. We will miss the gorgeous view of old town with the mountains and lights of mahalas, just beautiful.. When you stay here, you should ask for Ema's omlette for breakfast!

This was a second visit at this hotel for business. It is clean, very friendly. It's location is excellent in downtown and very near the tram. Breakfast is excellent and very personallized making for us whatever we requested. the rooms are small but very adequate. Would stay again any time and recommend to anyone.

We only stayed here one night, but it was a great night indeed! We stayed in the apartment which was spacious and well decorated with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. The breakfast was fantastic - essentially you're able to order to your heart's delight (omelets, crepes, fruit, etc.). The staff is very, very nice - everyone we spoke with always had a smile on their face, and truly seemed happy to help. Great place!

We stayed here a few years ago during a visit to Sarajevo. I felt so welcome, and our host was so open and accommodating towards us. We enjoyed our stay very much and I still recall all the stories about Kiki the dalmation who can be seen in many of the photos.

Halvat has a great location and I really recommend it for couples, families and solo travellers.

Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to help us in every way possible. This place is hard to beat for the price.
We spent two days touring with the owner's nephew, Asim who was charming, intelligent and gave us a great perpective on what happened in the war.

Thank you Ema, Dzenana & Asim!!! Greg, Denise, Aubrey and Everest

If you arrive by bus at the main station, you can take Tram #1 and get off at the 8th station i.e. Pigeon Square. There is a taxi stop uphill opposite to the Pigeon Square, walk along that road and you will see a small sign "Guest House Halvat" at the first corner, then turn right and you will find the guesthouse in 2 mins. The room is clean and the host speak good English.
