“Unique & Amazing House!”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

Ever since my partner and I first heard about Mostar we could not wait to visit, and when we found the Crooked House online we knew that this was the place we had to stay, and the house didn't disappoint. It is utterly charming and unique. I have stayed in many places in many countries but this house is a stand out. Inside is basic but comfy and has everything you will need. For me the best part is the balcony, we enjoyed eating out there or having a drink in the evening and watching the world go by. The house is a minutes walk from Mostar's famous Bridge and old town, so location couldn't be better. Our hosts also need to be praised, they meet us at the bus station and drove us to the house providing us with all the information we needed for our stay. They also left us some essentials in the fridge including a bottle of wine and organized an amazing day trip for us with Hostel Nina. I could not recommend staying here or visiting Mortar more.

“Very special house”
Reviewed April 27, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The more I travel the more I appreciate how important the location of my house or hotel is, and this is a perfect example. There is probably no better location in the whole of Mostar, and I doubt there is a more quirky and beautiful house. The photos are very accurate, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The balcony is the best feature of the house and inside is clean, comfortable and with good wifi. Travellers with limited mobility need to consider the stairs. There is aircon and heating should you need it. My concern before booking was whether the communal (table and chairs) space downstairs was a big enough space for 3 of us, it probably wasn't but we didn't use it. With so many good restaurants near by it's unlikely you would eat in and we spent our time on the balcony. I recommend eating at Timairma, it has the finest cevapi I have ever had and the best staff.

Edina met us at our scheduled time to exchange the key and to give us house hints and tips on the area and things to see and do. We loved the house and the balcony was wonderful. We spent evenings back at the house people watching and enjoying a glass of wine and the beautiful evening weather.The Old Town of Mostar is a small, friendly and manageable area with the Crooked House being in a perfect location for seeing everything only steps away. Go and enjoy, feel like you live there, if only for a few nights :)

“Amazing place!”

I have stayed at many places over the years but The Crooked House comes right on top as one of the most amazing places you can visit. The charming little house has everything you would need, comfortable beds, wifi, tv, little kitchen, clean bathroom, etc...The house is located right in the middle of the old town, and is literally 20 meters away from the Old Bridge..It is just steps away from all the amazing little restaurants and cafes. On top of all that, this house has an amazing private balcony where you can sit, enjoy a glass of wine and watch people pass by. Hosts are very welcoming and have explained everything including best places to go eat. They have really made my stay very enjoyable. This is one of the best and most unique places I have ever stayed in.

“Absolutely love it here”

Me and my partner stayed for a night at the Crooked House and we are really sad we didn't stay longer. Sanel's wife met us and showed us around the house, it has so much character and she gave us some tips on places to eat.
They made us feel very at home and when we struggled to find someone to give us a tour around the area Sanel quickly set us up with his friend Nino, who gave us a fantastic tour of Mostar and it's history. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay, sitting on the balcony with a drink. While in Mostar me and my partner got engaged and the Crooked House made the whole thing even more special.
Would recommend to anyone to stay here and we hope to go back soon.

“Location, character and hospitality!”

Our family of five were treated to some truly amazing hospitality in a fantastic house that oozed character. The house has been recently renovated - great beds, awesome balcony, tight kitchen but eating out is a must anyway. The house is located on a bridge in the old town. The outlook is beautiful and the restaurants and river are at your doorstep. Enjoying a drink on the balcony where we watched the world wander by was definitely a highlight. The owners went out of their way to make sure we were happy and we were treated like family in their family-run restaurant in the old town. Bosnia is an amazingly beautiful country and this is a beautiful place from which it can be explored.
