The hotel is near to the city center.The hotel is clean and the breakfast is valuable for the room price. The room was big but cold the system wasnt working. The staf is not that nice but they do their job! You will have a park just in front of the hotel.

A few days to enjoy the culinary and cultural resources of Bosnia and Herzegovina. You must visit Bascarsija, old town. There you can see works by old masters and crafts that are nowhere else practice and certainly, the Bosnian kebab (cevapi), spinach pie, potato pie, cheese pie, pie with meat ... mmmm.
Hotel Italia is excellent, The rooms are spacious, breakfast is very good with the carefully selected ingredients, the staff professional and always willing to provide useful information and advice.
Hotel provides a lot more than the price for which you can get accommodation in it.

Room Tip: images show room 201. Very nice room!

The hotel is soooo good! I've been travelling around the world, and this hotel is one of a kind. Yes, it's maybe a little oldfashioned, but you are in Sarajevo. Bosnia is still developing..
People are writing "too far away," I simply don't understand that. You can walk to the centrum (it took me about 20-25 min.) If you, for some reason, don't like to walk, you can take a cab (just ask the staff to call one for you). It costs about 3-4 euro each way. And that's for a cab!!! When you stay at hotels in central Sarajevo, you can't sleep because of the noises from the clubs/pubs/bars around! This hotel is in a safe area, and you can get your beauty sleep!
Rooms, staff and the breakfast are great aswell. Best place and hotel for the money!

For a city linked with war, Sarajevo is surprisingly safe. You can walk around day or night, and the Hotel Italia is not central to market or the street where Archduke Ferdinand was shot, so you need to hoof it.

Nice thing about Italia is being able to leave the buzz and noise of town and retreat to a quiet space.

Helpful staff who speak English, free Internet in rooms and value for money that's had to beat.

Room Tip: Pick a room high up to get the breeze.

The hotel is far from the city center where you would go as a tourist and finish your day with a nice food and beer. The room was relativly clean but really worn. I'd not stay here again if I do not need to, however this time unfortunatelly the hotel I'm usually staying in Sarajevo was fully booked.

I guess there one par of hotel is already renovated, because it looked much better than the part we were staying in. Rooms are in different shapes, it looks as builing was originaly not meant for hotel. Equipment is poor and old, but I must say that it is not dirty. I managet to get locked in the bathroom and had to call for help. Food in restaurant was cold, not very tasty, portions were small. Smoking is allowed everywhere. Not recomended.

Room Tip: Do not choose any room.

This would have been a 5 star , top of the range hotel back in communist days. It has been modernized, yet somehow, it retains the old 'charm' if you want it to be put that way. We had a large room, more like an apartment. The room was clean but in need of modernization. The tv looked to be 20 years old, the minibar had 2 items in it, the towels were torn and the mattress was as hard it gets. There was a constant scent of smoke from cigarettes all over the place, but this was more a case of smoke coming from the corridors where the cleaners seem to just take a break and smoke in the hallway. While to a westerner this is unimaginable, this is perfectly fine in the Balkan states. I have to admit that we could hear the conversation very well coming from the next room, hence the walls are not exactly thick. The location is about 5 minutes by car from the old town and 2 minutes to the center (2 euros for taxi). Its also slightly on the hill, hence you get a pretty good view of the central Sarajevo. We arrived for breakfast with 1 hour to spare and there was pretty much nothing there. Nobody bothered to re-fill the juices, milk, serials, etc....The eggs were gone and there was no one around to ask. When someone finally did turn up, to their credit, they cooked us a very delicious omelet. The restaurant is on upper floor with great views, a very old piano and again has this characteristic old communist style charm - mind you, its very nice. The staff at the reception were very friendly and helpful and spoke good english. You want to give this hotel 4 stars for the value that it represents, but on the scale of things its a very good 3 stars indeed - as long as you don't stay there for longer then a few days.
