We stayed in the Pansion Stari Grad for three nights. We asked the hotel to provide us with airport pick up. This cost 10 Euros. Our driver was there waiting for us when we arrived. He was extremely pleasant, helpful, spoke excellent English and gave us lots of useful information about the town.

The pansion is in an excellent location - very close to the Bascarsija area. There is a Konsume supermarket nearby. There are lots of restaurants, shops and sights within walking distance. The pansion is also very close to a tram stop. Tram 3 goes to Ilidža, tram 1 to the train and bus station.

All the staff at the pansion spoke good English and German. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The pansion was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Our room was very comfortable.

Breakfast was provided each day. It included tea or coffee, juice, rolls, cold meat, cheese, cereal. You can either eat next to the buffet area or in the courtyard.

The pansion was mainly quiet except on one night when other guests were noisy. The pansion is located on a side street so does not have traffic noise.

There is no fridge, safe or coffee making facilities in the room. The beds are comfortable. There was plenty of hot water in the shower.

I would strongly recommend this pansion for its lovely staff and perfect location and would happily stay here again.

The Pansion is perfectly located, just a few steps to Bascarsija. The room for 3 was comfortable and the breakfast satisfactory. The staff was excellent! They were friendly and very helpful. And we loved the little outside terrace where we could eat our breakfast or sit any time during the day and relax. Highly recommended!

Pansion Stari Grad is perfectly located on the doorstep of Baščaršija. You literally walk out the doors and find yourself in the square with the iconic Ottoman fountain. Sarajevo is a rather small city, so the proximity to the old town means everything is very walkable (except the tunnels). We even walked to the hotel from the main bus station - although I wouldn't recommend this of you've got a heavy pack!

The hotel itself is quite nice. The rooms are well equipped and there isn't really anything I can fault. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful with information about the city, sights and logistics to the airport etc. (Note: take bus 31e from city hall if you want to go to the airport - it's very close to the hotel).

Could not have found a better location in terms of proximity to the old town in Sarajevo.

Literally minutes walk from the Baščaršija, the property is small, yet quaint, with clean, comfortable rooms, and a friendly welcome service to match.

Although the wifi was a little erratic in the room, it works more than adequately in the lobby.

Another plus were the trams minutes from the pansion, giving good access to other parts of the city, as well as to the main train station.

Clean, good location, good breakfast.
They have a small parking, but it's not guarded. Generally speaking, parking in Sarajevo is very difficult. We found a payed guarded garage at 10-15 minutes walking from the Pansion.

I stayed at Pansion Stari Grad for 3 nights while in Sarajevo.

Location: Fantastic! 1-2 minute walk from Pigeon Square - could not be better. Area was very safe. The building it tucked away into a small street but that is no bother. Beautiful view from my window onto the hills of Sarajevo and some mosques.

Amenities: small packet of soap and shampoo. I didn't use them but if you're in a squeeze they are there. Hair dryer. Satellite tv (though it struggles in the rain).

Hospitality: front desk was always very nice and helpful.

Breakfast: continental breakfast provided. Hard boiled eggs, cereal, bread with jam/butter, and cheese. Coffee, tea, OJ.

Misc: one morning I slept in due to jetlag and there was no hot water when I finally showered. They claimed this was because it was all used up and would be reheated in 10 minutes. This never happened again and I presume anyone showering at an earlier time would be just fine.

I only encountered other guests while grabbing breakfast. No issues or noises.
