Makes the most of its strange location
Posted Jun 1, 2012 on Hotels
Pansion Harmony is a likable boutique hotel that does an excellent job of compensating for its out-of-the-way location. The friendly proprietor, Tarik, provides maps and tips for getting to the city center, and is happy to call a cab company that is refreshingly honest with rates. (Cabs in general seemed honest in Sarajevo.) The room was tiny and cramped, but I was warned about this in advance, so no big deal. A breakfast costs 5 euros extra, but that seems like a steal when considering the variety and quality offered. The room itself was simple, as was the background--but clean and quiet. Some may be turned off by how off-the-beaten-path this place is, but it's really not that far of a walk, and, if it's light outside, the signage pointing to the hotel is quite good. One warning: Tarik's night porter has fairly rusty English, while Tarik's English is impeccable. I'd recommend Pansion Harmony for someone seeking to save money, because the minor inconveniences are easy to overcome.
