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.
The locality to the old town and the latin bridge which is where we wanted to visit. n/a
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
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.
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)
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.
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.
new hotel in an old renewed building, central location, easy to reach, friendly accueil, nice and clean room, free internet
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.
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)
The hotels location! The rooms were a bit small!
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.
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
Great location!!! Only minutes from the old town centre.
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.
internet connection nothing special
Clean room, big bathroom, confortable beds, In central part of City ,but dificult to find. We couldn't pay with card.Poor bufet breakfast.
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.
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.
very pleasant stay. Friendly staff, great location.
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.
Excellent location, clean and spacious rooms. Breakfast was pretty minimalist and not that great quality.
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").
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
Good location, simple but very nice. Good relatin price/quality.
Staff extremely helpful.
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 were most obliging, rooms newly refurbished and airy. Good to have breakfast included.
The staff was very friendly, helpful and flexible.
Location is very convenient. Staff was very helpful Breakfast menu could use some additions.
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.
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 friendly and helpful
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)
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!
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!
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
friendly personnel. not kept there promiss to repair some things
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).
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.
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!
Very friendly staff, good location, additional hotel offer (swimming pool, sauna, fitness)
The Cleanliness of the hotel, the location and the friendly staff. One of the best hotel's I stayed in.
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.
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 location was very good and ladies at the reception was excellent in greeting and providing the needed information
Attractive central location. Great views of mosque and old town. Large, light room with newly fitted bathroom. Friendly staff who spoke good English.
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.
A very central yet quiet hotel with helpful friendly staff. No bar or lift
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 ;-(
The location was great
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
friendly & flexible staff; central location (very close to bascarsija)
Very nice staff, rooms small but comfortable. Breakfast Buffet was ok. Nice location near the center.
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.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable, with an excellent location right in the heart of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Proximity to the Old Town, friendly staff, great breakfast
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.
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.
Staff were very frieldly and helpful. Breakfast was great.
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
Very good value for money. Attic room - blinds over skylights/windows were broken so was very light in the mornings.
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 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.
The hotel is in a good location - short walk to old town. The staff was friendly; the hotel was clean and modern.
Nice place, very close to Sarajevo centre with a very nice staff.
Very Near Old Part of Sarajevo Only Twin rooms available not double as stated on website
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.
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 !
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.
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.
The hotel has a fantastic location. Rooms were appropriate for a three star hotel, clean and comfortable. Having free internet on the TV in the room was really great. Breakfast was really nice, lots of variety, although don't leave it too late, as all the good bits disappear early ! Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when we turned up a day early by mistake and they were able to squeeze us in, still. Also they were helpful with advice on places to go, restaurants etc. The hotel was great for a three star hotel, no complaints really ! The decor in the rooms was a bit disappointing - the website photos showed a quirky and interesting looking decor in the rest of the hotel, and with the name 'art hotel' I expected the rooms to be similarly 'arty', but they were your stock standard room, I guess not a problem really but just kind of boring !
The location is perfect, single rooms are spacious, beds are king size and extremely comfortable.... everything is new and perfectly clean. There is even a computer with free internet in every room- we just could not believe that the price was only 50 EUR per night!
good contact with the same staff who were dayly at the desk at the same time
Great location. Staff was helpful and spoke English. Check-in and check-out were easy and efficient. Breakfast was very good with a great variety of choices. Would definitely stay again.
location, location, location!!!!!! the very center of the city, between the shopping area (Ferhadija) and the old city (Bascarsija)... the reception and restaurant staff - very kind, helpful, friendly!!!!!!
very nice and helpful personnel. superb location in historical center. value for money.
Incredible location just beside the old bazar. Very kind staff. Personal computer in your room with free internet access. Parking free in the centre of the old town. Don't loose the opportunity to go.
the location, it is five minutes walking from the heart of the city and the staff was very friendly I didnt enjoy breakfast finding out there was no normal coffee or a nescafè, not all travellers are used to turkish coffee
Good location and stuff, interesting building (renovated old muslim house - not in oriental style)
Wonderful! is the word to define the service of Motel Seher. It will be a bit classic but I have definitely felt at home with my family. The place is to feel the history of Sarajevo just one step from Bascarsija. It was the time to be in Sarajevo and Seher was the place to stay with its kind, very friendly and welcoming personnel. The atmosphere of the hotel was ever more than what I expect from a boutuique hotel.
Friendly helpful staff and good location Very restrictive: you had to surrender keys before going out. Door was locked always so had to press bell and wait for staff to get into hotel. No guest tolerated in rooms. Was more like family B&B than hotel - this should have been disclosed beforehand on website as would have chosed something more modern
Newly opened and right on the edge of the city centre, owned and managed by a kind and helpful family, shops in the vicinity open until late at night, a home away from home.
I liked it very much. The hotel has excellent location. It's just 200 meters from famous street Baščaršija. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful. They also rent a car for us, for just 50€ for two days. I recomend this hotel for young travelers.
Good location for visiting Sarajevo. The beds were uncomfortable.
Close to old town. Very poor breakfast, almost nothing to eat (less than continental), prepared in not fully clean place. We had serious health problems 2 hours after eating. We strongly do not recommend this hotel.
I can absolutely recommend this Motel! Location is great and it is the perfect combination of a hotel and pension in one. It has all the luxury of a hotel (nice breakfast, internet, clean and decent rooms) and it has the cosyness and hospitality of a pension, because of the helpful staff.
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
The Hotel was great, but the staff was outstanding, they were extremely helpful, kind and educated. We hope to return someday. Note: 10+
Very comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Excellent value for money.
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.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
everything ı liked ; the staff amazing ; helpful all time
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.
Friendly staff and comfortable rooms There was no food outside of breakfast
Great location and very friendly, helpful staff.
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.
