Ahar hotelPosted Oct 21, 2013
It was not easy to find it even with GPS. I needed to stay for a night nearby airport, so far it worked well.

Only okay if you drivePosted Apr 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
I wasn't expecting a lot before staying at Ahar, as I wasn't paying a lot, and I knew it isn't in the city centre of Sarajevo. However, I was still disappointed. The hotel's about 15 minutes' drive from the city centre, and if you don't have a car, you would have to take the tram which takes about 40 minutes (but the hotel staff told us it's 20 minutes, which is why we took the tram once). It's located in the middle of nowhere, and there are construction sites around and the train passes through right next to the hotel every night a few times, which makes it quite noisy. The 'breakfast' included in the hotel consists of a few pieces of ham, cheese, some dry bread rolls, a couple of cheese options, butter and honey. Not kidding, that's it. So disappointing! I would recommend staying in a downtown hotel rather than at Ahar. We had to pay for parking in the city centre as the tram was really not so convenient. Though it's quite cheap (around 1 euro an hour), you could easily avoid this if you stay centrally.

The hotel is quite nice, very new and clean and reminded me of family holidays as a child in Austria. The owner is really helpful and even gave me a lift to the station on my last day! The only two drawbacks are, there is no air conditioning (it wasn't unbearably hot but too hot for comfort) and it is very far from the centre (about half an hour by tram, which luckily stops not too far from the hotel) and is in an area of newly built family homes/ blocks of flats so a bit hard to find also for cab drivers - there are signs but it's a bit tricky the first time around. I did find it a bit scary at night although this was more due to my fear of dogs than my fear of humans! Breakfast (included) was continental which, as a German, obviousy appealed to me.

Great, clean hotel with friendly managementPosted Aug 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
The Hotel Ahar is a nice, new hotel located a mile or so from the airport and a few miles from the city center. I stayed here with my girlfriend for 4 days and we loved it. Free breakfast, fast Wi-fi, TV's, and the staff even did our laundry for a tip. The owners are very friendly and are happy to point you to the sights in Sarajevo and surrounding areas. I would highly recommend the Hotel Ahar to anyone coming to Sarajevo.
