The Hotel Stari Grad is located in the centre of the town; its façade resembles a traditional Bosnian house and is in complete harmony with the architectural core of the town. Perhaps the most valuable and interesting asset of the hotel is not in it but underneath it. The hotel has been built on the ruins of a Turkish bath, hammam - in the course of building the hotel, parts of a Turkish public bath, destroyed by a fire 200 years ago, were found, built by Melek Ahmed Pasha while he was Vizier in Bosnia (1658 – 1659). In order to preserve the ruins of the hammam and yet make it available for visitors to see, the ruins are visible through a glass floor so you can savour your food and enjoy the sight of the historic hammam at the same time.
There are 6 single rooms, 6 double rooms and 3 suites. The rooms are tastefully furnished & are designed to be a home away from home. Each room was designed with a theme evoking symbols of Jajce; suites are dedicated to Tito, Esma Sultana Mosque and the waterfall. All rooms are en suite and have air conditioning, cable TV, international phone, mini bar & hairdryer. A safe is available at reception.
Within the hotel there is an exchange office, massage services plus Turkish and Finnish saunas. The restaurant seats 40 people and serves both traditional Bosnian dishes as well as international cuisine with a wine cellar offering over 50 different quality wines. During the summer season the restaurant offers an outdoor café within the property that has capability to hold 20 guests.
The Restaurant Panorama offers local Bosnian specialities as well as dishes from other cuisines. Its terrace offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Pliva Lake - one part of the terrace is a conservatory where lake views can be enjoyed in winter.
