Perfect location, fine family

During our Balkan trip we stayed at a good many pleasant accommodations. However, motel Seher was top notch to both my wife and myself. Although duly recommended by an acquaintance, the friendliness of the owners and its splendid location right next to the city center exceeded our expectations. A smallish B&B, but the breakfast is great. Exploring the city of Sarajevo is a delight. Seher’s owner Zavlan Samir and his daughter Azra giving a helping hand, refusing any extra pay, The stay at this location was the highlight of our trip.

Reviewed 26 March 2009

(1) Almost right in the centre of town, (2) family run and (3) bargain rates at a place that opened just a few months ago. The proprietor and manager is Mr Zavlan Samir, he is a musician and owner of a studio. From their savings he and his wife converted a 300 year-old house into a small and fine hotel. Just 8 rooms, you will feel part of the family before too long. In reception you are likely to meet their daughter Azra, an economics student, their son Amer is the family’s IT wizard. Both of them are fluent in English, that may come in handy. Very clean rooms, everything brand new, fine breakfast. Mr Samir decided to call it ‘Motel Seher’ because of some parking facilities nearby, it is a hotel just 300 yards from the main Bascarsija area. On the side of the tram stop too, with a direct ride to the bus terminal and train station. There is no own telephone in the room, no majestic lounge or business centre (Wi-Fi present though), but you are paying 2 star prices for 4 star surroundings. To the latter you may add the family’s kindness and helpfulness. And the nearby shops open until late at night. A home away from home you are likely to remember.
