Great location. Very friendly staff. We used the 11 euro airport pickup and that was great. Room Very clean and cozy. No Problems at all. Walked into town and got the 10 am free walking tour. 24 hour staff very helpful.

The staff at this guesthouse went above and beyond to make guest feel welcome. Breakfast was astounding each morning as they prepared food for each individual guest. They helped with directions and suggestions. I have never felt so pampered in any hotel.

You will not be disappointed with Halvat Guesthouse...our room was very comfortable, breakfast was whatever we chose and quite delicious. Valida is an excellent host. As has been noted before, it is a short walk to the old city.

The guesthouse is perfectly located for the "old city." The owners and staff are absolutely brilliant - they really convey their love for their city and no question is too stupid or request too trivial for them to try and provide an answer. It felt like a real privilege staying there and gave me a real sense of the "...

It feels like home there! And it's value for money...The room was very good looking, cosy and clean.. The breakfast was the best I had in Europe so far. It was actually a 3 course breakfast and freshly made (crepes, omelette etc) at that! Warm food, warm people..cannot get better than this. Validation, the host is one of the most...

We stayed at Hotel Halvat for three nights in the suite (which is in an apartment house immediately next door to the hotel). The location could not be better - 4 minutes' walk from the old town of Sarajevo (which the suite has a lovely view of). The staff really puts this over the top, though. It was our first...

My wife and I stayed at the Halvat Guesthouse for 2 nights last weekend. The location is less than a 5 minute walk from Sarajevo's Old Town. The room was on the small side but adequate. The included breakfast was excellent including eggs, etc. to order. Emma was extremely accommodating and gave us dinner recommendations and directions.

I am always a bit hesitant about "hospitality" in guest houses since, after all, it is a business (one of the reasons I don't particularly fancy AirBNB). However Halvat Guesthouse was the perfect middle. The host was very informative and friendly without feeling pushy (i.e. when I decided not to take breakfast since I wanted to start a very early...
