There must be cheaper accommodations in Skopje, but I am happy that I spent 30 euros for a night here.
As I was not aware that breakfast was included, it was a super nice surprising to have had a breakfast there without paying.
On my arrival, I was served a cup of drink and a bakery while waiting for my room :-)
Location-wise, I like both.
Anja Hotel - Behind Holiday Inn
Anja Apartment - Closer to city center
( 2 places are close to each other, though )
There are bunch of bars, restaurants between Holiday Inn and Anja Hotel. It must be very active at night.
There are zillions of shops near apartment, which is convenient to shop all day.
There is wifi at Anja Hotel, but I could not find any signal at apartment. Said that I was using someone's when staying at apartment !
The apartment is maintained very well and looks pretty new. Hair dryer is also equipped. There are doubly doors, which makes me feel secure.
( There is not a fridge in the room )
As of April 2012, taxi costs 20 euros from airport to Skopje City center, but if you ask Anja Hotel a pick up, it is 15 euros.
( I did not know it, so please someone try and confirm ! ) Alternatively, take a public bus from the airport which started around March 2012. Holiday Inn will be the closest stop for Anja hotel.
