DirectionsShow MapHide Map
We are only a 6 minute walk (1.50€ cab ride) from the Sarajevo Cathedral.
+ 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 it about 20 minutes to the 'Cathedral' stop. Exit the tram and turn right up the hill. Walk straight up that street and you'll find us on the left after about 6 minutes walking. Taxis cost about 5€ / 10KM direct. If you prefer to walk the whole way, it should take you about 40 minutes.
+ From the East Bus Station:
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. A taxi direct will cost about 7€ / 15KM. Walking not recommended.
+ From the Airport:
At this point, taxi services pretty much have a monopoly on transportation from the Sarajevo International Airport (SJJ). Expect to pay about 10€ / 20KM.
We are located in the historic Bjelave district of Sarajevo on the hill behind the Sarajevo Cathedral. We're in a quiet area safely surrounded by embassies and consulates so you can rest easy and still have quick access by foot to the old town and Sarajevo's best bars and restaurants. Sitting just over the line from the Old Town district, we are also very fortunately free from the nightly water cuts imposed by the city there, the noisy late night bars, and the parking space concerns.
