  • Great apartment and Vladimir was an excellent host. He sent us very useful directions and we had no trouble finding it. The flat was perfect and very clean. Thank you!

  • Our family spent two nights in Vladimir's wonderful apartment. It is equipped with all the conveniences: very modern stylish kitchen, bathroom and rooms. It's a light and spacious flat with a very nice view. Vladimir was an excellent host, very helpful and kind. The flat is in the outskirts of Sarajevo but it is not at all far from the old town and very easy to approach as there is a frequent tram service and taxi fares are very reasonable. We very much appreciated that the flat has an underground garage which was very safe, no need to worry about parking. If we go to Sarajevo again we will definitely stay at Vladimir's.

  • Vladimir was a terrific host. Whilst we didn't get to meet him, as he was away, he was always accessible by mobile or email.

    The apartment is spacious, clean, in a quiet neighbourhood and has a big supermarket and a few cafes downstairs. Vladimir has thought of everything from toiletries to little bits and pieces in the kitchen that you wouldn't think about until you actually need it. We cooked every night as the kitchen was well equipped.

    Vladimir also supplied a mobile which was great for booking taxis and keeping in touch with him. We were also given a 3G Internet stick which could be taken anywhere.

    The Old Town is easily accessed via a 10 minute walk to the tram and then a 10-15 minute tram ride.

    We encountered a few hiccups on the first night due to a storm but Vladimir promptly dealt with the issues and had everything resolved first thing the next day.

    Thanks for a wonderful stay Vladimir! We'd definitely come back and stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this gem of an apartment to anyone looking for a home away from home during a stay in Sarajevo.

  • Vladimir's apartment is comfortable and very clean. All you need you have inside. The neighbarhood is very quiet and provided many servicies. Unfortunately,we didn't meet Vladimir , but his friend Mladen is nice and friendly host.We visited Sarajevo early but this time our stay was very pleasent thanks Vladimir's beautiful apartment. Recomend to all travelers and tourists who come to Sarajevo to stay in this apartment.

    August 2013
  • The flat is really nice, and in a very good condition !

    We spent 2 nights in Sarajevo and Vladimir is the best host I have met so far !!! He will leave you a computer in case you need to go on Internet, and a mobile phone with the taxi number.

    We did a city tour before going in the best kebab restaurant of the old city with Vladimir and his friend ! He will introduce you the city the best it can be done !
    We have visited 10 cities during the summer, and Sarajevo is the one we enjoyed the most.

    Strongly recommended flat and host !!!

    August 2013
  • Vladimir is an excellent host who thought through every single detail we might have wondered about in Sarajevo. He even took care of the things we did not know about before coming to the city (like local mobile phone, what cab company to use). Highly recommended!

    August 2013
  • Vladimir was a wonderful host. The apartment was absolutely lovely: clean, well put-together, and comfortable. Moreover, it had everything you could possibly need (lots of towels, linens, bathroom supplies like shampoo and conditioner that can be tough to travel with, etc). I would highly recommend staying here. The only comment is that the apartment is a bit far from the center: it takes 10 minutes to walk to the tram, and then a 10-15 minute tram ride to the center. Or, you can take a cab for about 7.5 BAM. With a car, it is no problem. Even without a car, I did not find the commute to be a problem, especially given how comfortable and nice the apartment was.

  • We were blown away by Vladimir's thoughtfulness and consideration as a host. His driving directions are excellent, he gave us a very thorough orientation to the apartment, and he even provided us with a pre-paid cell phone programmed with local emergency numbers and cab companies. He also tried to set us up with a roaming wireless router, which didn't work properly on the first day and which he tried to deliver on the second day before leaving himself on a trip, but we didn't see his SMS in time. Regardless, he is an absolutely excellent host, and the apartment was great too: spotlessly clean, very comfortable, a million toiletries and basic kitchen supplies already there, and conveniently located near a supermarket, ATMs, a cafe, and the tram into the city center. I do think it would be most comfortable for 2 people (we had 3 total), and be aware that the bed is wedged into the room in such a way that whoever sleeps on the inside has to climb over the person on the outside, but we had a wonderful stay overall and loved Sarajevo, too. Definitely check him out if you're in town--I would stay again in a second. Thanks, Vladimir!!

About
I am a fully employed professional, travelling a lot regionally and around Bosnia and Herzegovina. I enjoy helping people have a comfortable and memorable stay in my country. Having traveled a lot myself, I know what it is like to visit a city for a short stay - one has so many questions, yet the guidebooks don't always provide answers to all of them :) This is why I try to make your stay as easy as possible by answering your questions in advance, helping you have a smooth arrival, comfortable and secure accommodation, and safe sightseeing in the city. I hope you will enjoy your stay in Sarajevo!
