Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This hotel was definitely our favorite - close to a lot of sightseeing and restaurants, the hotel itself has spacious rooms that were hip and comfy. The bar downstairs was friendly good for a drink. The beds were comfy, and everything was extremely clean. We upgraded for a river view room, and really were happy to have it.

Paid for a better room. Room was ok but full of flies. Also balcony is nothing special, not much to see. Food was good. Parking was awkward as only a small car park so if you are not in early you need to park somewhere else. Staff were ok

Sorry to see how disappointed you were with your experience. I accept it’s a shame when expectations are not met. Clearly there should be no issue with flies in a bedroom. I’ve no report of any incident in our logs so I don’t know if it was connected to a window being open as I have been unable to find...

My husband and I stayed in the suite and it was just fantastic. The room was beautiful and the view was just as beautiful, looking over the river. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is overpriced and isn't 4 star. **** hotels don't have Ikea plastic plants in galvanized buckets on breakfast tables or Ikea fabric on walls! I felt sorry for staff as they seemed stressed. It's not a happy place. It's a reasonable three star. I asked for a quiet room in my booking. I didn't get one. Its a...

From the tone of your review something really annoyed you, or more accurately a multiple of things annoyed you so sorry for that. You’ve made a fairly strong comment on your view of the hotel as not 4 star and that’s very disappointing. Clearly you feel you did not get value for money and I cannot change your perception of...

Stayed here with my husband and a group of friends for a wedding in Limerick. Gorgeous rooms, some of the nicest I've stayed in in Ireland. Breakfast was outstanding, a huge selection - we couldn't believe it. Christian (the manager) was a great laugh and so welcoming on arrival. I would definitely come back.
