This hotel is a historic place (through the war in the 90's and as well as the 1986 winter Olympic, for which it was built). That also means that the hotel is old and you can tell. The hotel needs renovation and some touch-up work.
We stayed here for just one night as a part of our tour and we had little interaction with the front desk as the check-in was taken care of by our tour guide.
Our room was kept clean so my sincere kudos go to the housekeeping crew. It seems, though, that the room had a smell of cigarette smoke (and a couple other people in our tour group mentioned the same thing). So we figure it's not just our room. Probably the whole floor (or even the whole building) reeked cigarette smoke.
The staff (in general) seems courteous and willing to help with direction to hotel restaurants, common bathroom, etc. So another kudos for that.
Now, the location. It is a short taxi ride away (less than 10 mins) from Baščaršija, the main bazaar in old Turkish quarter. It could even be walkable if one is willing to venture out on foot (we didn't try).
So with all that being said, would I stay at this place if I came back to Sarajevo one day? Most likely not. I'm sure you can pay the same amount of money and find a nicer/better-maintained property located closer to the bazaar.
