It's a great place to stay i have just 3 cribs the first 2 being more imp
1) There are dogs (stray) dogs right in front of the hotel - which is all good in the day time but come night and when u are getting back from the old city late at night they growl, bark and sometimes attach you. I had to take a taxi back just to avoid them.
2) The breakfast is not all that great- manageable but not up to the standards of the property.
3) It's a lil far from the old town - walking uphill is not enjoyable after couple of drinks.

We had dinner in a restaurant in the old city, and met Mariem, ...
... wanted to see the inside, which he was in charge of restoring. So we got a private little tour, with his explanation of what the various symbols and architectural aspects of the mosque meant. He didnīt seem to want anything from us besides the opportunity to share his knowledge and passion for his work. It was very cool.
Today, thankfully, the sun came out. We had a walking tour of the old city center ...
... Found a 3 hour guided tour of most of the main sites that was really good. Sarajevo has been under three major empires in the past...Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian, and German...so it is interesting to see all the lasting influences from each of the cultures within the city. It is also an example of how complex the ethnic situation in the Balkans really is. Mario and Drazen are Serbian and live in the half of Bosnia that is rather ...
