The Halvat Guest House is really a very nice accommodation to stay. The hostess Valida and host Mumo are very welcoming and friendly. Everything is taken care of down to the last detail. The room we had was very spacious and very clean. We stayed there with our family of 5 with three children. A crib for the baby was arranged, there was a fridge and television in the bedroom and the WiFi was good everywhere. Just like in a hotel, everyday the rooms were cleaned and fresh towels were laid out. The breakfast at the guesthouse is very extensive and you can tell the host what kind of breakfast you would like to eat. From fried eggs to pancakes and roasted vegetables and fresh fruits everything is possible. In addition, we had many pleasant conversations with the hostess and she gave us many good travel tips. Also she helped us out with practical things and when one of us got very sick and needed help from a doctor. The location of the guesthouse is also great. In less than 5 minutes walking distance you are in the middle of the city in Bascarsia. We could park the car in front of the door of the guesthouse so that was also super nice. With tears in our eyes we said goodbye to the host, who became a part of our family. We felt so safe and welcome and we hope to be able to visit Bosnia agian next year and stay at the Halvat Guesthouse again. Evsen Family

I stayed with friends in the spotless clean guest house Halvat,Sarajevo. Mornings were amazing, when our host served us with perfect breakfast. Halvat is situated within pedestrian zone,but arround the corner, wich saved us from noise. Free parking was offered few meters from our GH. All recommendations! Will come back with pleasure.

I had an amazing stay here - so much so I extended my stay! The owner and her staff are wonderful and so very helpful. The rooms have all that you will need, are spotless and very comfortable. The location is very central, but tucked away just round the corner (2 minute walk) so you are away from the hustle and bustle of the old town.The breakfast is so good as well - I definitely recommend the scrambled eggs!
