Motel Deny is home to six rooms, with beautiful views over the Old Town. The name ‘motel’ is rather misleading, since it is more of a quaint B&B hotel. The rooms are simple and clean with a fresh decor of white walls and minimalist furnishings. The hotel has a modern communal area and a restaurant serving Bosnian specialities that is open exclusively to guests. Motel Deny is at the lower end of the price range, but is surprisingly comfortable and high quality for the price.
