Breakfast was meh, the room wasn't spectacular... Yet, Hotel Herc is worth the 5 stars in my book. Staff are helpful and friendly. Location is absurdly good, such a close walk from City Hall, Old Town and some of the prominent cemeteries. Very satisfied.

The description of the facilities could be a bit more accurate. There is no memory foam pillow and no coffee making facilities. The breakfast is at best basic. I saw no evidence of a bar.

Located at the very top of extremely steep typical Sarajevo's street. Only few minutes of walking to the Baščaršija and city centre. Very cozy small hotel, recently redecorated so everything is pretty new. Staff is so friendly and you will feel like being among your friends all the time. Tasteful breakfast for the beginning of the day. Wonderful view from...

The hotel is located uphill so it has a bird eye view of Sarajevo. Very close to the centre. The service very friendly. If you do not need luxury but a nice, clean and safe place - do stay here. You can walk down to the city centre with no hassle.
