The location of the motel is perfect. All important point of the historical city is available in few minutes. The hotel staff is very kind and helpful.
The location of this hotel is absolutely superb. Just in front of the bridge where WWI broke out and few steps away from the city center.
The locality to the old town and the latin bridge which is where we wanted to visit. n/a
Fabulous location ofr visitng hte Old Town.We were lucky to receive a room upgrae to the 'the apartment' (a very large room including kitchenette. (nil)
Excellently positioned near the old town of Sarajevo. The staff were friendly and personable. The breakfast was informal, plentiful and healthy. The air-conditioning was very welcome in very hot weather. The hotel was very suitable for a grown up family group of 5 people. There was a broken curtain in one bedroom.
Beautiful little place located right opposite the famous Latin Bridge, perfect location, with friendly staff willing to help you out with any of your needs
Location! Location! Location! 100 metres from the spot where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was shot and 200 metres from the old Turkish area. Great fun! The hotel is spotless, the staff obliging and helpful, and the price is right.
new hotel in an old renewed building, central location, easy to reach, friendly accueil, nice and clean room, free internet
Excellent location, friendly staff, free parking. The room was noisy (big electric station just beside). The requested "suite" (for 3 persons) was not really a suite (beds in the same unique room). The breakfast is limited.
Location to Old City, 5 minute walk. Close to Tram 3 which takes one across the city for a mere 1.60mk about 70p. Reception put out basic breakfast early as we were leaving for the bus station 15 mins before start of breakfast and she gladly accommodated us. Room very small and basic however you only get what you pay for.We are a mature couple therefore a bit basic for us however as a budget hotel would recommend.
Staff were great, very accomodating, especially where the children were concerned. Bed and pillows were the most comfortable I have had during our trip (and that's over 10 countries worth of different hotels, motels, homestays, mobile homes etc)
internet connection nothing special
Great location!!! Only minutes from the old town centre.
Excellent hotel however description not accurate. Telephone, plasma screen and kettle available in the hotel but not in the rooms as described. Otherwise it was vey clean and the staff were helpful and friendly
lovely staff. nice apartment. great location. very good value for money. they didn't accept visa cards. the room wasn't cleaned daily.
the lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful the breakfast was very poor, there was leaking in the room coming from the room above
Clean room, big bathroom, confortable beds, In central part of City ,but dificult to find. We couldn't pay with card.Poor bufet breakfast.
Very strategically located at the tourist area. A bit uphill to climb nevertheless close to all amenities. Room was comfortable and could see a beautiful view of theold town. But there was no lift and bathroom was wet due to faulty shower door. Otherwise had a very pleasant stay there.
The hotels location! The rooms were a bit small!
The rooms are nice and clean, showers operate, there is a nicely equipped kitchen with a common dining room, the staff was friendly and serviceable (they even let me change my bed at some point). Every bed has an attached extension cord as well as a locker in which I was able to fit a big suitcase and a rucksack. Overall, really great. Nothing to highlight :)
My stay at the Halvat Hotel was great...the staff was extremely friendly and helpful in giving advice about where to go in Sarajevo. The location was great, as we were less than a 5 minute walk from the old town area. As far as the room, it was big, warm, and had a very comfortable bed. The WiFi in the room worked fine as well. I would definitely stay there again!
Location is very convenient. Staff was very helpful Breakfast menu could use some additions.
A short walk from Sarajevo 'old town'. Interesting interior design features, good breakfast buffet with CNN News in the breakfast room. Very helpful English speaking reception staff. No.
Staff extremely helpful.
The staff were most obliging, rooms newly refurbished and airy. Good to have breakfast included.
staff extremely friendly and helpful
Close to old town and no problem to park the car on the street. Rooms are not standard. You should see different rooms if available before you pick one; otherwise you can get a really old room.
Good location for exploring old city centre. Walking distance to all parts of the city. No bar or social area so difficult if travelling alone. No food other than breakfast.
The staff was very friendly, helpful and flexible.
Good location, simple but very nice. Good relatin price/quality.
Kindness of the people workin. They treat you ike if you were in a family. Then, the location is really strategic. Bathroom is really very small, as well as the bed (I had a single bed)
Very nice staff, rooms small but comfortable. Breakfast Buffet was ok. Nice location near the center.
Staff were very frieldly and helpful. Breakfast was great.
This is the best value for comfortable, clean, and friendly lodging in Sarajevo. It is perfectly located, 5 mins walk (just over the Latin Bridge) to Bascarsija (Old Town), and has easy tram and trolley bus access as well. Plus, just steps from the guesthouse is a neighborhood grocery with an ATM machine. Wireless and A-C worked great and breakfasts were wonderful. Stayed here a total of two weeks over a 5 week period and could not have been more pleased with this place.
was very comfortable and clean and hotel price was so good. Espacially the boss name was Amar very hospitable and friendly. Breakfast was accordance with price. room was authentic and it was reflected sarajevo ambiance. parking area was prblem but 5 minutes distance there was safety covered parking place
Proximity to the Old Town, friendly staff, great breakfast
Good location, friendly staff, clean rooms (although a bit dark). Breakfast ok. Nice oriental feel of the building. Not very easy to find - even with a GPS, as the street names are unclear (several streets named "Bistrik", with confusing numbering and signing). However, that's not really fault of the hotel.
Very friendly people, quite newly renovated, central location, nice breakfast. Places like this really stick out of this still rather depressing city, which is so nice and picturesquely situated but still full of ruins. We did not have the feeling that the porter checked everyone coming in, but maybe they have a camera hidden somewhere. The tables in the lovely breakfast room are Turkish style -- just above your knees -- and some of the seats are just low stools. But when we stayed there (August/September), there was lots of room for everyone, thus no problem once you learn to focus on leaning back. There are pretty mean pickpockets around the bazaar. Mother grabs arm with fingernails, daughter digs into your bag, son bugs accompanying person. Another note: Half the restaurant in the bazaar do not sell alcohol and it is hard to see the difference from outside
The stafff was very friendly and helpful. The room were very clean and decorated in an ethnic style. The location is very good near the old town and the bazaar.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable, with an excellent location right in the heart of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful.
friendly & flexible staff; central location (very close to bascarsija)
Design, location are excellent! Can't find a hotel this small whit such an excellent pool and spa!
We liked the big, comfortable bed with the many pillows, also the friendlyness of your staff
Very friendly staff, good location, additional hotel offer (swimming pool, sauna, fitness)
Everything was fabulous....room, spa, gym, pool, staff! They aren't great on small details eg. bed not made, only small towels given, breakfast doesn't follow the menu. But these do not detract from the hotel being great!
Wonderful and safe hotel in the heart of Sarajevo. No other hotel is so central! The pool, sauna, and GYM are totally free for guests! Also restaurant is extremely good and totally unexpensive. Is extremely important to book a central hotel like this: Sarajevo is a bit dangerous in the neighbours and you'll feel unsafe in small streets without people. Think seriously about it!
Wonderful location and staff. We stayed in a larger room which had a porch with a very nice view. Bathroom sink and shower are poorly designed (sink is way too high and water goes everywhere from the shower), but pretty.
rich breackfast, great pool and gym; location in the center walking part near to the muslamic neighborhood with many shops (quite cheap stuff, but great and tasty restaurants).
friendly personnel. not kept there promiss to repair some things
The location was very good and ladies at the reception was excellent in greeting and providing the needed information
good location, nice staf
Excellent location right in the pedestrian zone in the middle of Sarajevo old town. Very helpful that there were signs directing you to the hotel from the Latin Bridge - could elsewise have been difficult to locate.
The Cleanliness of the hotel, the location and the friendly staff. One of the best hotel's I stayed in.
Attractive central location. Great views of mosque and old town. Large, light room with newly fitted bathroom. Friendly staff who spoke good English.
The location is excellent. Right in ithe old town where you want to be, staff were helpful with directing you with places to go. Breakfast was lovely. Not about the hotel itself, but if you arrive at the train station, there is no ATM or money change places, so make sure you have some smaller euro notes on you to pay for your taxi into the city center.
Large spacious room .comfortable big bed. Nice decor and very clean good location Was a bit noisey as it's right in the hussle and bussle. Also could hear the muslim call of prayer at 6.00 am from the adjacent mosque ;-(
Practically brand new hotel, situated in about the most central location possible. Most sights and every facility are within a 2 minute walk. The staff have a real enthusiasm for making a sucess of the venture and their professionalism was much appreciated. The odd teething problem, like the hot water ran out one morning, but I'm sure they'll fix it.
The location was great
A very central yet quiet hotel with helpful friendly staff. No bar or lift
Very good value for money. Attic room - blinds over skylights/windows were broken so was very light in the mornings.
Nice place, very close to Sarajevo centre with a very nice staff.
Decent location near the old town (not ultra-central, but a nice 10 min walk from the Sebilj), very big, comfortable room, nice staff. They didn't have a record of my initial reservation.
The hotel is in a good location - short walk to old town. The staff was friendly; the hotel was clean and modern.
Very Near Old Part of Sarajevo Only Twin rooms available not double as stated on website
We had an excellent time at this hotel. Best customer service by far. Clean rooms, very affordable, spacious, an easy walk to the tram. Certainly will come again !
Excellent small hotel - good location short walk up from old town. Very frendly and helpful staff. Bed incredibly comfy. Communal area was good to work in and not feel isolated in the room. Parking on site was a real bonus. Will be back again.
Great staff. i had a beautiful penthouse room on the third floor.the wi-fi worked flawlessly. the location is very good, only a short walk to the old town. the absence of an elevator may be a problem for those travelling with a heavy load.
Location and good staff. Also English skills were good. Some of the fittings in the room were loose. Small point but better maintenance would enhance the experience.
The hotel staff were all very pleasant and helpful, the room was very nice and comfortable. The location of the hotel is good and the building itself is lovely.
very pleasant stay. Friendly staff, great location.
Location! Perfect location, 2 minutes walk from Bašćaršija, Begova džamija, Sarajevo museum, Sebilj and other cultural attractions.Hotell staff was very nice, smiled and always ready to help. Value for the money- parking, place to have breakfast and a place to sleep, near to everything. Thin wall, nose from the lobby (buy ear plugs, cause Drogerie Markt in Sarajevo doesn't have it), strange balconies that are shared among rooms, breakfast could be better (but you can always and grab a "burek").
Close to center It is not 4 star - and the the staff is like they are annoyed. Phone's not working, no mirror in the bathroom.
Close into the innercity of Sarejevo. It's a very new building. Carparking indoor voor one (mine) car. There was no airconditioning (35 C degree). There stood a third bed in te dubbelroom. No much room was left. No lift.
The location of the hotel is excellent, the friendly and helpful staff, especially Melisa and Agnes were extremely welcoming and made our stay there very special. I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler. I would love to go back there sometime. Any requests we had in the hotel were met and the girls went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay.
the workers of entire hotel are definitely kind and cheerful. the location is also perfect. 2min to the baş çarşı where we can call as a center if any one wants to be in historical center. but i liked the people of hayat, really. thanks to them. it has a parking problem honestly and would nice to be more generous with the breakfast. breakfast is limited with basic table. And i don't think it would be problem for the hotel to put basic soap and shampoo in the room.
Excellent location, clean and spacious rooms. Breakfast was pretty minimalist and not that great quality.
Great location, very friendly staff, nice rooms, excellent value for money. In the morning, you could hear some noise from the canteen. Bring some earplugs and it should not be a problem!
Excellent location near the Sebilj. Nice staff, spotlessly clean rooms, internet in all areas. Easy access to most areas of the city. Comfortable, if small rooms. I was disappointed to see it booked out on my return to Sarajevo. Not a bad mark, but infirm guests should know it's a very short uphill walk
I stayed at the City Boutique Hotel betwen 12-14 of Feb 2010, it is very rare that a hotel ticks all the boxes at a very reasonable price (they have a special discount of 50% during weekends). I had earlier read other reviews about this hotel that were generally very good apart from a couple of them who called the breakfast poor. To be honest it did not seem poor to me in any sense at all - it had all the food and fruit you would expect for breakfast from a 4 star hotel and as fresh as it comes. The rooms were very very comfy, spottless clean and the staff was very nice and helpfull...it gets ten of ten for me and i highly reccommend it.
everything ı liked ; the staff amazing ; helpful all time
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Very comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Excellent value for money.
Great location and very friendly, helpful staff.
Friendly staff and comfortable rooms There was no food outside of breakfast
The hotel is just in the city center and easy to reach from airport by taxi. The staff are very kind and helpful. Our room was not very big, yet it was clean and comfortable.
great location, good size room, nice breakfast, very friendly staff... This hotel exceeded my expectations. Room was a bit hot, and AC did not help.
The Hotel was great, but the staff was outstanding, they were extremely helpful, kind and educated. We hope to return someday. Note: 10+
The hotel is modern and cosy, the position is very close to any city attraction. It is also perfect for business meetings in town. The breakfast is pretty poor, but the food looked fresh
