I loved it, my wife not so keen. We had a double room under the main terrace accessed by steep stairs that felt like going down into a dungeon. The shower room was built into the room using frosted glass panels. The room looked out over a fast flowing stream which became a torrent during the night following a storm. The sound of the water, even through double glazing, was loud and woke us both up. For a few minutes we really thought we were going to be inundated. As the rooms at this level have only one set of stairs down to them and no secondary escape it was a bit un-nerving at first but once we realised the water was not coming in we relaxed a bit. Couldn't get back to sleep though.
The staff were really friendly and helpful and we ate on the back terrace and had a lovely meal there.
Our agent told us the hotel had parking but it doesn't. There is a secure parking lot about 100 meters away which you can pay for in Euro, €10 for the overnight stay.
There are lots of steps to get into the hotel, beware if that's a problem for you.
The hotel is right in the old town and really well located for the bazaars and bridge.
On arrival there was a notice in reception saying their credit card system was not working and all guests had to pay cash. It was soon clear to me that this was a policy rather than a problem as the notice had obviously been there for some time. As our agent had paid our bill it didn't concern us much but others had difficulties paying as they didn't have enough cash. They clearly prefer you to pay in Euro. You cannot exchange Bosnian Marks outside the country so we planned to pay by card. Fortunately we were going on to Montenegro so had a few Euro to hand. Others were not so lucky.
Breakfast was ok but there was a large group in the hotel who got there first so it took some time to clear seats and restock the buffet. The staff worked hard and kindly went and found some fruit for my wife when asked.
We would go back but would only do so with one of the rooms on the upper floors. Definitely not one down in the "dungeon".
