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 "...

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.

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...

We arrived near evening, were warmly welcomed by the staff, and enjoyed a stunning view of the mountains and the city lights as we settled in to our suite on the third floor. The rooms were immaculate, a variety of tasteful and interesting things decorating the apartment, and very comfortable beds provided a great night's sleep. The location is close...
