To recall, Rotana, one of the largest companies of this type in the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, signed a contract according to which it will manage Bosmal, which will become a hotel.
“Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana is a modern hotel in Sarajevo, the capital city of BiH. It will provide the best entertainment and hospitality services, as well as the possibility for organizing conferences.
