We stayed there already for several times and always liked to come back, feeling somehow at home in a private, liberate atmosphere in the eldest part of the town. Although simple, we would encourage you a lot to make experience of the hospitality of the house-owner Besim Dzirlo.

Give Besim a call if you're heading to Sarajevo! His number is 387 61 243 227. My partner and I stayed at Besim's place for 3 nights in October-November 2014. He lives in a small house in the centre of the old city. The location is great as it is within walking distance to most anything you want to see....

This guesthouse is THE Sarajevo's guesthouse... My best Serbian stop. On the rooftop of the house, there is one of the best city view... The owner is a very nice guy, speaking about Serbian and Sarajevo history. If you go to Sarajevo, you must go to Besim's place!

Besim's house is great and cosy!! I spend time in Sarajevo regularly and thus have been there a few times. Prices are very affordable between EUR 15-EUR20 a night, which is hard to beat in the area. The bathroom is a bit small but the overall experience is truly made great by the owner who bring you coffee/tea, gives you...
