WE'LL BE HONEST WITH YOU
We've scanned hundreds of reviews for other Sarajevo apartments before we wrote this description to make sure you get the best picture possible of what you will be paying for. We've also noticed a few issues travellers are complaining about in many reviews, so we will be honest with you:
1) Are there any hills to climb to get to my apartment? No. There is only a 6 metre long (20 feet) slight uphill street a couple of minutes from our apartment and that's all - no steep hills, dark alleys or stairs to climb.
2) Is the hot water in shower limited by a boiler capacity? No. Our hot water is gas heated as you open the tap. You can shower for hours, unlike in places with small boilers that let you have short showers and then wait half an hour for water to heat up again.
3) In winter, does the heating work overnight? Yes. You control the heating and can leave it on throughout the night. Our apartment is not a part of the citywide heating network that works only until midnight and comes back on early in the morning, leaving you with no heating for 5 or more hours.
4) Are there water shortages in your apartment? Yes, occasionally, but always only between midnight and 5AM. The whole of city of Sarajevo is part of the water reduction plan and it is hard to find a place in the city that has water 365 days a year between midnight and 5AM. All other hours water runs normal in our apartment.
5) Anything else I should know that might surprise me? Yes, if you plan to sleep in the living room, be prepared to be woken up by natural light in the morning. :) This is because our living room has no curtains or window blinds. ThiWindows here face North and look out into the beautiful open space with trees, grass areas and small houses and buildings. The closest building is some 90 metres (300 feet) away, and you are on the 6th floor, so nobody can really see you. We have therefore left the living room curtain-free and window blinds-free. Our bedroom, on the other hand, has outside blinds which can make the room 100% dark depending on how much you open them.
To keep the air fresh for everyone, this is a no-smoking apartment and we kindly ask all guests to obey this rule. Smoking is allowed only on the balcony. Although we love our friend's pets, we never hosted any in this apartment, so pet allergy sufferers can be safe from any negative reactions. Guest AccessGuests have access to all parts of the apartment, with key and three locks for maximum security - guests are on their own. Interaction with GuestsI or one of my friends welcome guests to hand over keys and show you all apartment utilities for 15mins, then guests are on their own but have a 24hr FREE phone to ring host and ask for any kind of advice. We do not interfere with guest privacy or visit or call guests unless guest requires us to do so. Guests also receive a comprehensive guidebook to all amenities in the apartment so you don't have to spend hours working out the TV set and the heating control. The NeighborhoodBuca potok/Cengic vila is a quiet neighbourhood some 12mins by car/taxi from the city center. It is well connected to city center with public transport and has its own shopping center, supermarkets, numerous banks, food market, caffes, bakeries, petrol station, etc. Getting AroundTravel to city center is simple, safe and convenient.
