Hotel Astra Garni
Ranked #35 of 70 Hotels in Sarajevo
Reviewed 11 August 2009

Be careful - there are 2 Hotel Astras in Sarajevo, very close to one another. This one is the Astra Garni, 3* and well worth it. Superb location in the heart of the Ottoman centre of Sarajevo. The hotel is modern, the rooms are well appointed, clean and simply furnished, the staff helpful and English speaking. Breakfast is continental, plentiful, fresh and lots of coffee or tea are provided too. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. I stayed with 15 others on a trip to Sarajevo and we all really enjoyed the hotel and the city, even trying to stay a few days longer it was so special. As the hotel is right in the centre parking is a nightmare, so leave the hire car in the car park nearby if you have one.

I can't compare the Astra Garni to any other hotel in Sarajevo as I stayed at the Astra Garni during my one visit. It is a very basic hotel, no frills or luxuries, but then again you don't go to Sarajevo for luxury. The room was rather small and the linens were kind of scruffy. The bathroom was rather large and basic. The best part of the hotel was its central location.

The rooms are very small and cramped. I was unable to open the closet door because the bed was in the way. I was barely able to walk around the bed. The bathroom was also very small. Bed was uncomfortable. The room had a window which opened towards the outside at the top. You had to stand on a chair to open the window and push it out. The location is fantastic, which is all this hotel has going for it. You step outside and you are in the old town next to shopping and restaurants. Breakfast was included and was descent.

Nice central location. Top floor bedroom was slightly small (with huge bathroom). Breakfast let down (basement is never a nice place to start your day).

Its central - VERY central. Although you get almost no street noise, which makes a restful stay.
My room 311 on the top floor was very small and had a very small window. Could just about get round the double bed, but the cat couldn't swing and there was no view to speak of as the window is about 8 feet up the wall.

I also had problems logging onto the internet from my room, and reception weren't overly bothered about helping me. But theres an internet cafe only 10 metres away.

Overall its a nice enough place. Nice breakfast spread - and even a small weights room for those inclined. Its mostly benches and disc weights, but theres a bike and a cross trainer in there. Its a basement area, so only basic, but useful.

Restaurants and bars a plenty within a 5 minute walk. Parking is VERY limited... so ask when you book.

The hotel has been recently remodeled and we had a wonderful room that was huge. The beds were very comfortable and had fluffy comforters and lots of pillows. The breakfast was hearty and the service very good. They even had a place to park our car. It is in the perfect place to enjoy the old city, near restaurants and shops.
