Terrific hotel near the airport

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 16, 2013

Sarajevo was just a brief stop on our trip, we flew in on Tuesday night and left very early Thursday morning so an airport hotel made a lot of sense for us. Hotel Octagon is within walking distance of the airport, it took us 5-10 minutes to walk from the terminal to the hotel. We were greeted by a very agreeable young man who was also at the front desk in the morning. When we came down for breakfast at 9:30am and they had already cleaned it up he apologized profusely saying that he was sure all of the guests had eaten. Really, he treated us like personal house guests running back in the kitchen to put the food back out, cooked us some eggs and someone else ran back out to get more bread despite our insistence that it wasn't necessary. He even offered to drive us into town because he felt so bad. When we asked for directions, he gave us incredibly detailed instructions on how to get to the bus stop and what to do in town.

Unique Quality: The hotel is very good for short stays or people with early flights but it's a bit of a journey into town. We took the public bus for 1.80 and I think it took about 20-30 minutes, other reviews suggest that a cab from the hotel is only about 6€ so it might make sense just to take a cab.

The room was comfortable, clean and modern. The free wifi worked great. There was a refrigerator and a microwave in the room. We didn't hear any noise from the airport, it's a very small airport so there aren't a lot of flights going in and out. Cable TV with lots of English channels.

Directions: Cross over the street outside the airport and take the 1st street to the right, just a short walk up that street
