Sarajevo is a great walking city, but if trams are your thing, catch the tram and from tram just a 4 minute walk down from here (4-5 minutes up). Cabs are cheap too and I'm happy to call you one anytime you need

My place is close to art and culture, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, and many more what you can visit in Sarajevo.. You’ll love my place because of the ambiance, the neighborhood, the comfy bed, the light, nice employees.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and big groups.

We are a 4-5 minute walk from the Sarajevo Cathedral, Old Town and center.

+ From the Railway Station
& Main Bus Station:
Tram #1 leaves from directly in front of the Railway Station every 20-30 mins. Pay 1.60KM at the ticket window or 1.80KM to the tram driver, then make sure to stamp your ticket in the machines available at the front and back of the tram. Take the tram about 10-12 minutes to the 'COBANIJA' stop. Exit the tram and turn right over bridge. Walk straight up that street and you'll find us on the right after about 3-5 minutes walking. Taxis cost about 4€ / 8KM direct with the meter on - be careful as they often try to trick tourists into a 15KM flat fee and a fake luggage fee on top. We suggest flagging one off the street rather than taking one from the queue. If you prefer to walk the whole way, it should take you about 30-35 minutes.

+ From the East Bus Station:
Most buses from Serbia and Montenegro drop you off at the distant Istočno Bus Station in Republika Srpska. Public transit connections take well over 30 mins to reach the old town via bus #103, but it's the cheapest option. Pay the driver 1.80KM for a ticket and take the bus to the stop - COBANIJA. Walk back to traffic lights and left from there we are on right side after 1-2 mins walk. A taxi direct will cost about 7€ / 15KM on the meter. Walking not recommended.

+ From the Airport:
At this point, taxi services pretty much have a monopoly on transportation from the Sarajevo International
