Hotel-Restaurant Kriva Cuprija
Ranked #7 of 15 Hotels in Mostar
Reviewed 12 September 2017 via mobile

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".

After an interesting drive from Croatia we arrive in the mid afternoon and after three attempts around the one way system finally find a carpark close to the hotel.
Lovely check-in with a charming girl who arranges fresh fruit and juice and sits us at a table and performs one of the most detailed inductions to any hotel we've stayed in.
The porter insists on helping my husband retrieve our bags and is also insistent that I should not carry anything, my bag's extremely heavy so I'm fine to just follow. He leads us up stairs, huffing and puffing explaining due to it's Unesco status the hotel cannot add a lift.
The old hotel is lovely, low ceilings and a warren of corridors, doorways and steps.
Our room overlooks a passage way to the Bazaar, brightly coloured rugs and cushions are laid out with small tables and we realise when we go exploring that its a little coffee shop.
The room is a good size, tastefully furnished with, thank goodness, really good air con, Mostar was insanely hot when we arrived. The shower is great and whilst almost part of the room a heavy glass door slides for privacy.
In the evening we've booked a table for dinner on the terrace with a view to the Crooked Bridge. Our porter transforms into our waiter for the evening and seats us at our table and brings us requested G&T's and the menu. He offers us a three course option of typical Bosnia food which we decide to go with his recommendation he also suggests a local wine that he thinks is delicious.
He is fantastic, his heavily accented English language skills charm us. I like his respectful old school attitude to women and his fine sense of comedy. The river that flows under the bridge is alive with croaking bullfrogs, he has a pet one apparently called Jimmy and punctuates our evening with updates on him.
Bread is bought out with our salad entree and the waiter opens and pours our bottle of wine. It is indeed delicious as is the salad that has refreshing tang from julienne horseradish. As we eat the call starts from the local mosque, the muezzin has a wonderful clear voice and I'm enchanted. It feels like we could be in a fairy tale film set, the view beyond the bridge is of slat grooves, higgledy piggledy old stone buildings, Cyprus trees dot the hills beyond the mosques tower.
Jimmy's friend is attentive and tops up wine and brings our mains, exclaiming "who did this?" in mock horror that my husband has lit the candle, it's his job!
Our main is called Peka, slow cooked lamb and vegetables cooked under a bell on hot coals. It's tender and the potatoes are melt in the mouth delicious. Portions are huge and as with have dessert I struggle to eat it all.
We decide to go inside for dessert as mosquitos are eating me and we have no repellant.
It's warm inside and as soon as we sit down an air con unit above is helpfully turned on.
Dessert is sticky and sweet and delicious with Bosnian coffee. For digestive purposes we take a romantic hand in hand stroll around the bazaar before bed.
Skipping breakfast for an early start to Kravice Lakes, we really enjoyed our short stay at Kriva Cuprija, the super friendly staff combined with simple food in the heart of Mostar was a memorable experience.

After a long drive from Croatia, I arrived at Kriva Cuprija and was greeted by very kind and welcoming staff who gave me a little orientation of Mostar and information about the hotel and restaurant. My room was comfortable and cozy, and the food was also very nice. Mostly it was the friendly and hospitable staff that made the experience stand out. Thank you so much!

We were fortunate enough to secure one of the lovely modern rooms at Hotel Kriva Cuprija in the old town of Mostar. The hotel is magical as it is right on the river and overlooks the old "crooked bridge". The setting is so peaceful yet you are in the center of all the tourist spots. Most importantly, the hospitality of the management and staff were beyond belief! Our evening here was one of the highlights of our two week trip. Many "day trip" tour buses arrive in Mostar each day from Split and Dubrovnik. Treat yourself and spend the night as the city is delightful in the evenings and early morning.

This hotel was lovely. Great position very close to the old town - 5 min walk to the famous bridge. The staff were fantastic. We arrived early from the train from Sarajevo. The staff allowed us into the room way before the official check in and they couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The room was also lovely. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
