5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

The Hotel Old Ticked all our boxes. It is right on the edge of the old Muslim quarter, yet despite the hustle and bustle of this maze of streets and shops, it was quiet at night. The staff - special thanks to Hajrunisa (sp?) - could not have been more attentive and helpful, and had first class English...and they do good scrambled eggs for breakfast too! No other public rooms (e.g. bar) but when a dozen bars/ restaurants are a stone's throw away, this is hardly a problem. Rooms smallish, but clean and cool. Easy to find as well.

This hotel in centrally located in the centre of the Old Town so it is very close to restaurant, cafes etc. There isn't secure car parking but we were able to park on the side of a road very close to the hotel. The room itself was clean and modern but rather small.

The name doesn't lie about its location. The 'ottoman' Old town is a wonderful pedestrianised area from which to explore Sarajevo and filled with restaurants and market stalls. Around the corner from the hotel is the spot where franz Ferdinand was assassinated. The hotel itself is modern, clean and small in scale. The staff were wonderful and always around to assist. Indeed they went out of their way to help. Breakfast was reasonable, they offered fried eggs on arrival and of course Bosnian coffee! My room was a little small and stuffy but had air conditioning and open windows, which were best kept closed at night due to the outside noise. However, inside was remarkably quiet and peaceful. I would be happy to stay here again.

Perfect location. Great value for what you get. Extremely nice and attentive staff. Basic breakfast but they make fresh to cook eggs for you and traditional Bosnian coffee. Not dance but good enough. I would def stay here again. Easy to find, right across from the Latin Bridge.

The Hotel Old town is located on the edge of the historic old town, and has limited parking and rooms have been refurbished, giving it a modern style inside a very old building. Some things to watch for: Make sure your booking stipulates the number of persons or you may get a double room for one person! Be aware they do not accept Credit Cards, only cash in BM or Euros. Also specify on your booking you require parking, as they arrange it for you.

We really enjoyed our stay and the historic city is full of pleasnat suprises and good restaurants.

Room Tip: When booking online make sure you specify persons and parking if needed. They only take cash. No ele...

Staying five nights in July I really appreciated being in a quiet spot right in the heart of the most interesting sights in the unique historic city of Sarajevo.
Staff are exceptionally friendly & always willing to help.
Rooms are basic, but very clean & practical.
Breakfasts offer good variety, with great Bosnian coffee.
Thoroughly recommended.
One criticism : TV news comes from US propaganda station CNN. BBC World News would be better.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs, try for ground floor, as there is no lift.

We stayed for 3 nights on the first floor. Despite the busy location (it was Ramadan) and the low floor, the noise level was surprisingly low. The room was clean, comfortable with a view of the main mosque. Breakfast is good, and the coffee machine superior. Transfer to airport was arranged for us at 5:30 am. All of the warm staff (we met 3) are highly commendable. One thing of note is that the hotel takes only cash.

Room Tip: Pick a low floor as there is no lift
