Amazing view. Spacious pad. Unscrupulous owner.Posted Sep 28, 2016
My room was spacious with a beautiful view of the city. Unfortunately, the owner spoke very little English, leading to many misunderstandings. The worst part which led to a bad feeling: I asked him if he could arrange a cab to pick me up on the day of my departure.(Mind you, I was using Google Translate) He said it would be 15 Euros for the whole trip. After cab brought me to airport, I realized this was a lie. This was NOT a communication error. Owner scammed me out of 15 Euros

Fabulous hidden gem!Posted Oct 11, 2015 on Hotels
Don't be put off by the backstreet facade. I've you enter the apartment you'll find a lovely, spacious, light and airy accommodation with panoramic views of the city. 5 minute walk into the centre of Sarajevo. Well worth a visit. Would highly recommend this apartment. Great for families, groups of travellers or just a couple.

Great location, Great hostPosted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: Location, view.
Location: Walking distance to the historic mosque, the Latin Bridge, the Old Town.
I can't say enough about this apartment and the host. He was there when we arrived, met us at the door. Gave us a quick tour of the apartment and the facilities, which were spotless, spacious and afforded a great view of the city. He was also a great tour guide, ready to answer any questions we had about the city, what to see, what not to see, where to eat, etc. I cannot say what a great experience this was.

Home from home in SarajevoPosted Jun 21, 2015

nice apartmentPosted Jun 9, 2015 on Hotels
This is not a hotel, it was an apartment. not too far from the Latin Bridge and the main atractions of the city. The owner was super helpful, I arrived late and he was waiting for me. I also left very early and he was there to say goodbye and make sure that the taxi that he called for me was there.

Avoid - Guaranteed booking doesnt mean guaranteedPosted May 12, 2015 on Hotels
Here are the facts. We booked this apartment through hotels.com and got a guaranteed email saying the apartment was reserved. On arrival we were told that the apartment we had booked was no longer available as the previous occupants decided to stay for the rest of the week. After much discussion and dismay they offered to split us and for 1 of us to sleep in what looked like a lounge/hotel lobby with a sofa bed (where most people walked through to get to their apartments) and a studio. Obviously this was unacceptable and again after much discussion we were offered a 1 bed apartment which obviously hadnt been cleaned and was clearly one of their friends houses who was away for a period of time. I did a quick check on hotels.com to check if it was available. What do you know, it was. My recommendation is to avoid this hotel as a guaranteed booking with these clowns is not guaranteed. They simply do not know hotel/guest management 101.

Want a local stay? - Stay here!Posted Mar 31, 2015 on Hotels
came to sarajevo to seek the local experience. Apartments sarajevo is the right place to go! - The reason i rated the neighbourhood not "5 stars" is because it's local. I loved it for that very reason, but I expect some travellers might find a back-alley type of location a bit off-putting. I personally no doubt recommend this place and specifically the host to all travellers who seek the independent style and touch and conversations with the locals.

Spacious but dirty and no hot waterPosted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: Location was good. Spacious - two floors, bedrooms above two sitting rooms, kitchen and bathroom below.
Cons: Cleanliness, heating, and hot water. Responsiveness of landlord/owner.
Location: Close to old town in Sarajevo - bascarsia, with the old mosques, Ferhadija the walking street, good restaurants. Sarajevo Pivnica restaurant is close.
Good location close to old town, but on narrow street not well accessible. Spacious. You are required to take off your shoes on the first floor - with no heating in the stairwell and in winter, this was very inconvenient. The room was extremely dirty - particularly the bathroom, which had not at all been cleaned. The previous occupant still had extremely personal items in the drawers which had not been removed. NO HOT WATER - expect nothing but cold showers. Heating went on and off. No maid service. Unresponsive landlords - we called a number of times to draw attention to problems, but got no effective response. There were promises to send a maid, but it happened only once. In effect we felt taken advantage of. It was telling that there were no hotels and apartments available in Sarajevo over the New Year - but this one was empty. Bedrooms in the attic are a little difficult to move around in, given the low ceiling.

A lovely apartment in SarajevoPosted Sep 22, 2013 on Hotels
We had a wonderful stay here. The owner was so hospitable and welcoming. We felt like we were staying in his home. The apartment itself was roomy and the backyard/garden was a wonderful addition. We would stay here again without question the next time we are in Sarajevo.
