Stayed at this hotel some time ago. Found the staff very welcoming, warm and friendly (the highlight). Gave me a huge room with fridge and let me check in very early in the morning. Food was great. I walked a short way and caught a tram into central Sarajevo. Top value hotel.

For travelers who had the pleasure of knocking around Europe in the 60's, and stayed in the sort of hotel that European people stayed in for months at a time on holiday, this hotel will take you pleasurably back to large rooms (at least ours was), clean bottom sheets that aren't fitted, windows that actually open, and a real dining room with a grand piano. The furniture, while not antique or elegant, is made out of real wood. Our bathroom, instead of being stuck in a corner of the room itself, like so many of the made-over old pensions of modern Europe, if you can find one today, was cleverly tucked into what must have once been a large closet, so the room retained its original size. Aside from a comfortable, firm queen-sized bed, there was the (in the olden days) de rigeur table and chairs actually suitable for a meal. The television had plenty of European and British channels, and we had a nice view (albeit over some buildings) of the lovely mountains with which Sarajevo is surrounded.

The breakfast was creative, with many cold cereals, breads, jams, cheese, serve-yourself hot drinks and juice, and a different hot dish every one of the three mornings we were there. Again like the old days, the other guests, whether Bosnian or foreigners, nodded and said good morning to later arrivals. Dinners were a little pricy for our budget, so we didn't eat dinner there, but the breakfasts, especially the several varieties of fresh bread and fruit, were always satisfying. There was one individually packaged spread that contained pork, which was not immediately apparent, so if you have dietary restrictions you should ask the waiter. There was only the one spread; the sausages were chicken!

We especially appreciated the numerous live plants that were everywhere, nicely cared for and with shiny clean leaves. A special touch is the mat in the tiny elevator that is changed every day - it has the day of the week woven into it, in English!

The location is quiet, with no traffic noise reaching the hotel at night. A brief walk gets you to the tram lines, which circumnavigate the city, and coming home at night was always a pleasure. The employees were friendly and helpful, ready with maps and advice. The price would have been reasonable anywhere, although not exactly cheap. When we return to Sarajevo we will stay there again. If you miss the quiet dignity of middle-class European travel, this is your place.

The hotel is quite basic. It boasts a swimming pool on it's website - but is not in use at the moment. Worth checking if that is important to you.

Reasonably clean rooms, breakfast OK - but they need to clear tables when guests have finished. We had a family room - which was a supersize with a double and two full size single beds - ideal for a family travelling with teenagers. 90 euros per night.

Receptionist very friendly and helpful - didn't expect us to turn up as a lot of previous people had booked and not shown. You don't need to take a taxi to the old town. Five minutes walk to a tram which takes you in very cheaply.

The hotel is not in a picturesque area - but if you just want somewhere to sleep that does not matter. The hotel won't win any awards but it was half the price of well known hotel chains. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

This is a no-fuss hotel that won't either delight - or disgust - anyone. The receptionists were friendly and efficient and my room was clean and warm. It's one of the cheapest hotels in what is otherwise an expensive place to stay. Main problem - distance from the Old City - you need to taxi it
