Actually far, far from it. And still, it's a good choice in Banja Luka, as the hotel situation there is actually quite terrible. Anyway, on their quite nice homepage they call themselves "the only 5 star hotel in the region". The hotel itself is actually quite modern and the location is fantastic...but the rooms itself are more 3 star hotel...

I spent just over two weeks working in Banja Luka, and stayed at the Talija. My room was nice, the bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast was the same every day, but that said it was fresh and got me going. The lobby cafe was very nice, albeit it a bit smoke filled at times. The staff were absolutely magnificent, and the...

We had a quick stay here as a family of four and had a good experience. It is hard to find international 5 star standard hotels in Bosnia and this hotel is not of five star standard either but it is a nice hotel in a very central location with decor and service that raise it a notch or two....

This hotel is a decent, well-run little place with helpful staff, centrally located and with secure underground parking. But it's not above average, unless you place a premium on being able to have at least a bit of swim each day after meetings etc.. In that case the little pool on the top floor (skylights above) is a significant plus....

The Hotel Talija is a smallish hotel. It is getting a little tired but has several things to recommend it. Top of the list is the staff who are all very friendly and eager to please. Requests are quickly dealt with. I love the fact that the don't disturb you every 5 minutes like so many other hotels do. They...

In its favour this hotel is very central so most places are a short stroll. However it claims to be a 5 star hotel but it is not, certainly when compared to other international hotels. The rooms are small, the shower weak and lack any range of toileteries that you would expect. The breakfast are tired and not fresh and...

Talija is centrally located in Banja Luka, at The main Square. Swimmingpool at the top is a plus. Modern rooms. Plenty of hot water. Cosy coffee shop. Breakfast was better before when it was made to order. Now one mist settle for not freshly fried eggs. Bread is great.

This hotel was my one night's stay location in Banja luka in June. Though the rooms are small, they are nicely furnished, new and pleasantly organised. The hotel has free wi-fi overall and a copious breakfast is offered. The staff are friendly and helpful. Price is good value for money. I would recommend this hotel for a business or for...

Location close to main square and good restaurants is good. Coffee shop is still good, nice staff. Breakfast good, but was better when it was made to order. Rooms in old wing are drab. In new wing they are good. Small signs of deteriation, however, like broken stoppers and lacking tissues snd so on. Still best I have found in...
