HOTEL VILLA SKY
Sarajevo, January 2021
Tucked away in the heart of Old Town, the most picturesque part of Sarajevo, you will find Hotel Villa Sky, a small hotel with a grandiose view and an excellent service. The hotel lies within a short walking distance of Baščaršija, the Ottoman bazar area and the most vibrant part of the city. You can immerse yourself in its many oriental style cafes, sweet shops, handicraft workshops and restaurants to really feel its vibe. Hotel Villa Sky is also situated conveniently close to most of the landmarks you will want to explore in the Bosnian capital. There is a beautiful walking area up the river only a few minutes away which leads to the so-called Goat’s bridge. It is quite popular with the locals who come to climb the rocks, bike, rollerblade or simply walk in the afternoons. If you want to explore the more remote areas of the city, the tram station, the city bus station and trolleybus station are only a couple of minutes away by foot.
Villa Sky is a small size hotel with eleven units operating since 2017. Its excellent service and location earned it a very high rating of 9.2 at booking.com. My recommendation is the spacious top floor 2 bedroom apartment with a stunning view of Sarajevo. It fits six people, has a fully furnished kitchen, tv, a jacuzzi bath and most importantly, a wide terrace to watch the amazing sunset over the capital. The beds are comfortable as well as the pillows. The wi fi is great quality and is provided on every floor. The reception works from 7h to 23h and they provide free parking and luggage storage. The airport is 14 km away and the hotel will arrange the pick up and drop off for an additional fee if you inform them before your arrival.
The area will make you feel like you are home. The mixture of sounds of children playing outside, trams squeaking, smell of freshly baked bread and the voices of muezzins from many mosques calling to prayer give this place a unique feel. This is the heart of Sarajevo and if you really want to experience the charm of this city the Old Town is the place you want to be exploring. For more hotel information and booking options please visit the Hotel Villa Sky facebook page, instagram and booking.com. Finally, one more recommendation. Though Sarajevo is most popular in the summer time, if you love the mountains, hiking and winter sports you should consider coming here in winter time as the Bosnian capital is surrounded by the perfect white slopes of several Olympic mountains. The hotel can arrange transport and a ski/snowboard instructor if you need one.
