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.

We made reservation through booking.com - superior room which supposed to be 45 m2. There was no place to install a third bed for our daughter and she had to sleep in baby cot provided by the hotel for extra 9 euros though it was broken. We got room on the ground floor just next to the restaurant so the guests could see directly into our room. Therefore it was not possible to let the window open. The room was not 45 m2 at all and had a hall which was useless - no window - could be used only to store our luggage. There was nowhere to hang the towels in our bathroom. On top of that we were not asked to present our passports at all and after we checked out we got notification from booking.com that our reservation was cancelled for no show. We were surprised. Fortunately we have our receipt. The food was average, dirty dishes for breakfast.
