Centrally located and only a few steps from the spot where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. The hotel is basically at the dividing point from Ottoman Sarajevo and Austrian Sarajevo. The hotel has a very modern exterior with the rooms looking as if they came from an earlier era...except for their very modern and comfortable bathrooms. Their breakfast buffets are poor (cold eggs being served from unlit steno trays) but the location makes up for this. Staff is not particularly helpful or friendly. Free wifi is available in your room.

We walked through the Ottoman quarter and also (only about a block away) the bridge where the Archduke was shot. With the group we took a walking tour of Sarajevo. …

Turned inland at a town called Senj onto the 50 road. This is a seriously nice ride with a real mixture of scenery and an excellent surface. Stopped at ...
... English to direct us to the bus station for the nearest cash machine, right then right.
Walking out the station didn't help things much. We walked out into a large dark area of nothingness. There were city lights a few hundred yards away, but to turn right as instructed was into dim wasteland. We held hands and went as we were bid, and did find the bus station, and the Bankomat, and bought a bottle of drink and a packet of crisps so that we ...
... kicking off WW1.
In the middle of the quaint old town we ran into Ari and Laura once more. Rather than getting a beer (or crepe) in the Austrio/Hungarian to the east - we opted for a few Rakija's in the western Ottoman region. I can recommend the Honey, Pomegranate and Blueberry flavoured rakija - especially when served in the awesome, spill-preventing glasses.
We visited the centres of the 4 prominent religions in Bosnia and the bridge where Franz Ferdinand ...
