What we offer

The guest house is set in an old Austro-Hungarian type of building, but the interior has been fully refurbished in spring 2012. Thick walls and high ceiling provide quite and cosy environment inside.

All rooms are private and you will not share your room with other guests. Rooms with private bathroom (hotel-like rooms) can accommodate from one to four people. Rooms with shared bathroom can be used by large groups of up to eight people, but they are also available for individuals, couples, families or smaller groups. In case of shared bathroom, there is one bathroom per two rooms. All bathrooms provide hot water and shower.

The shared kitchen can be used by all customers for self-catering, but on request our friendly host can prepare a continental breakfast. Fairly large dinning area offers enough room to eat or to sit and watch cable TV. Free WLAN broadband internet is available in all rooms.

Our Location

We are just 15 meters away from the High street (main pedestrian zone in Sarajevo). There is a closed market – market hall, the most famous market in Sarajevo, 20 meters from us. The Cathedral is just 50 meters away and Sarajevo's old bazaar, historical and cultural centre of Sarajevo, is 200 meters away. The most popular Sarajevo's coffee bars, pubs, restaurants with local and international cuisine and night clubs are situated in radius of 300 meters.

Please note that despite the fact that we are in the very centre of Sarajevo, the position of the rooms, thick walls of the building and double glazed windows will assure you a good night sleep.

How to reach us

If you are coming by car or taxi, just keep going to the centre and ask for the market hall "Markale", we are just opposite to it. If you are coming by tramway from the bus station or railway station, take tram no. 1, and exit at "Katedrala" (the Cathedral) stop. From any other part of the city, take tram no. 3. Once you exit at this stop, just keep walking another 50 meters down the same street, towards the market hall. If you are still not sure how to reach us, give us a ring, we will pick you up for free, if you are not too far away.
