“Check in is not there”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Please do not forget to go to Anja restaurant by the river across the archeological museum. We were searching for the room and after 30 minutes we have realized we are doing wrong. The room is a simple room with a good location. At the time of our visit there were no internet connection. The breakfast is good in Anja Cafe. Staff were friendly, warm. Room was clean and tidy.

Hotel Anja is well located on the promenade by the river Vardar, just next to the central square and within walking distance from the bus station. It can anyway be a bit tricky to find the first time, as it's inside a shopping center. When you see the statue of two playing figures (see the pictures) you've arrived. The check-in is in the restaurant Anja, and to go to the hotel you should enter to the shopping center (there's sign "Hotel Anja") and then go the steps up and turn to the right.
The rooms are basic but clean. The music and other voices from the street might disturb. Reserve enough time for the breakfast, it's not a buffet but you should order it. There're a couple of alternatives in the menu. Specify what you want; you'll get your coffee automatically with milk unless you ask it black.
The hotel can arrange you transportation from/ to the airport by request. The fixed price is 20 € and you pay it at the hotel.

This hotel has nothing particular in it, the room we had was basic but clean, the bathroom was ok and we had hot water and clean towels. There isn't much in way of decoration but it's ok.
The staff was polite and helpful, they speak english good enough and we had laughs at our misunderstandings.
The breakfast is good if simple and we tried the restaurant once wich was good enough for simple fares.
The major point of this hotel is its location, you are within walking distance of some of the major tourist site of skopje and there are quite a few shops and restaurants too.
We enjoyed staying here because it was very convenient for visiting the town and the price is good.

We booked a room online for 2 nights and asked for the best. We were shown 2 rooms, both very small but clean and modern. The biggest problem is that neither room had proper curtains - they only had thin light fabric which would allow privacy but not keep out any light. We decided against staying here and moved to the Pelister instead. Ivan the owner was most disappointed so gave us a free guide and tour of Matka Gorge to compensate. We did eat in the restaurant and the food was basic but tasty.

We booked into Hotel Anja back in July - no problem as no money would be taken until we checked out. The rooms were delightful -spotlessly clean with all the usual amenities, not all the en-suites are the same size, but all our group were fully satisfied, some had stayed there before and recommended it to us. The food was good and very reasonable. The staff were polite and very helpful -delighted to practice their english and recommend sights to see. The location is in a prime position opposite the new impressive state buildings on the other side of the river, Museum of Archaeology, ANother Museaum and the Macedonia Office of the Foreign Minister. Just the other side of the Stone bridge (2 minutes) was the National History Museum and the Holocaust Museum and a little further the old bazaar. Everything walkable. Statues abound, anew one to Alexander the Great, King Phillip the second his father and many more. Two more new bridges going up across from the hotel to the Museum, adorned with many statues of national figures. Justinain and St Clement by the Stone Bridge. If you go there visit the Caravanserrais, one a resuarant and one a historic centre as well the Turkish baths. There is also the Museum of historic Macedonian Cultural history. Word of warning - night club nearby so can be a little noisy until midnight Tuesday - Saturday.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool and no fitness centre. This is a no frills excellent value budget hotel.

The hotel is located in the city center, 15 minute walk to the bus station, 50 feet from the famous bridge and statute of Alexander, 5 mins walk to the old town bazaar, and on the river banks across from the new government building. Great price for the room.

Room #1 was directly above the Anja restaurant which meant you would hear the music till the restaurant closed at 1am. Furthermore, there was some sort of generator in the restaurant that hummed very loud and made it virtually impossible to sleep until it was shut off at 1am each night when restaurant closed (930pm on Sunday). The room was a little dirty, and very cold and the bathroom was tiny. The hotel runs sort of like a hostel, so keep this in mind when you arrive and check in at the restaurant or if you have any concerns during your stay as staff are difficult to locate. Yes, checkout is annoying also because you have to walk around the restaurant trying to find someone involved in hotel. A real annoyance if you checkout at 5 am when restaurant is closed and there is nothing but the security guard in restaurant. The rooms are all on the 2nd floor and the main entrance to these rooms did not appear very secure, the door handle itself appeared to have been recently pried and had not yet been repaired. This entrance is also connected to the shopping mall, so not secure and accessible to anyone. I was forced to leave a day early because i needed to get sleep.
I would not recommend this hotel unless you are on a strict budget, but even in that case i would say don't risk staying at the Anja.

The loud music and partying in the street at night made it impossible to sleep, so I wont come back. Apart from that it was very central and decent if you don't expect more than a clean bed and shower, wifi worked well.
