Hotel Holiday Sarajevo
Ranked #49 of 70 Hotels in Sarajevo
Reviewed 8 July 2017 via mobile

When I was booking the room I was expecting a modern hotel. The reality was different. Old looking decor and the approach to the client was poor.
15min walk to the city center and I recommend looking for a restaurant there as the one in the hotel was disappointing. The staff didn't speak English and the food was regular. Breakfast was also mediocre. Gym was old and the swimming pool was smaller than in the photos. It is better to find a different hotel in this price.

Great service, great facilities, very comfortable with nice food. The staff could speak English. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the the main centre and a few minutes walk to some of the main museums. The food was good. The only downside is the smoke that lingers in the corridor because smoking is allowed in rooms and restaurants.

The hotel looks tired but our room was spacious enough.

Breakfast was good with decent spread. Cafe was a bit busy during breakfast peak hours
Within walking distance to Sarajevo city center.

You won't be wowed, but it will be a pleasant stay

This amazing, infamous Hotel is placed in a now, good area of the city. It is only around 15 minutes walk in to the centre although there are many huge shopping malls local.

The bright yellow hotel was infamous for the world press and the then,President's accommodation during the Balkans war.
The reception and check-in was very friendly and warm. You are are made to feel welcome immediately.

The rooms are a little older now but they are very clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds and every facility is available.

The lounge and bar areas are spacious and relaxing although, cigarette smoking is still permitted indoors and this can cause a bit of a stench. We chose to go outside to the patio cafes. The air is fresh and clean and the cafes and bar staff are friendly and helpful.

Breakfast, although plentiful was mayhem. There were many people staying during our visit and the breakfast turned in to a free for all rummage. Coffee machines did not function, drink dispensers ran dry and tables were not being cleared to accommodate other guests. There was serious disfunction of the restaurant administration and guests were left to fend for themselves any which way they could. Saying all of that, the food was nice and I'm sure that it would look great....just before opening and before the "attack"

On a separate note, we chose to dine one evening at "Bistro Boss" which we were not sure whether it was a part of the hotel but it appeared to be in the complex of the hotel. I doubt that we've ever had such terrible, bad food....and that's ever... underlined. We should have guessed really as the people who arrived only had drinks and cigarettes...not food. We could not eat the food but still paid the bill and left.

We would stay at the holiday hotel again as it has character and the staff are lovely.

Thank you.

This Olympic hotel that managed to survive the war intrigues the visitors with both its exterior and interior. The service is satisfying, the rooms clean and the beds comfortable. Wi-Fi that doesn't seem to reach all the rooms is the only weak spot I witnessed. Furthermore, it is located right next to a shopping centre and the tram tracks that lead right to the centre. It's possible even to take a 15 to 20-minute stroll to reach the centre. All in all, a very pleasant experience.
