Hotel Anja
Ranked #47 of 73 Skopje B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

This place is in a great location in skopje. Literally so close to the centre, it is only a short 30second walk to the statue. The room was modern, clean and the white walls, bed linen and doors gave it a good vibe.
The staff are very friendly and speak good English. They were very helpful.
Definitely a great place and good location!

The location is the best thing about this place, and the one aspect that makes it highly recommended. Right by the riverwalk and the main square, next to the old stone bridge, at night you can literally crawl back from the many bars in the area should you choose to.
On arrival you'll be greeted by a friendly smile and a drink of your choice, and the people working there are all very nice.
The hotel consists of two parts (and I happened to stay at both as I was traveling through Skopje twice on my Balkan trip). The newer "hotel" side has got modern but small rooms, mine with the only window facing up towards the sky. The "apartment" side feels a bit older, but the rooms are bigger and here my window was facing the main square in the city.
Both options are very good, and even if prices are a bit higher in the capital than in other cities in Macedonia you get good value for money at Anja. Breakfast is included as well, at the pizzeria that's part of the same company.

There doesn't seem to be many decent, backpackers type of hotel/hostel in Skopje in general. Hotel Anja was average, but it has air-conditioning - very important in Europe in summer. We were offered to a room with entrance in the terrace of the old central mall. There were no windows in the room, though it was recently renovated. There was a cockroach in the room. Air-conditioning was strong. We bargained for a lower price as we checked-in on the night of our stay.

This hotel included a high quality, generous breakfast in its restaurant on the ground floor with outdoor seating. Definitely a must-try, even if you are not staying in the hotel, it is inexpensive. Coffee was the best I had in the Balkans. There were three choices: omelette, continental or cheese platter. Note it takes around 30 minute to arrive.

Hotel Anja has a good location close to the old stone bridge, which connects the old and the new Skopje. The pedestrian street in front of the hotel has many restaurants, and it is just a 15-20 minute walk to the bus station. The people working in the restaurant Anja handle the "check-in", and they give the impression of indifference and annoyance of having to do the hotel business. This was also the case other times during the stay when I had questions related to the room. It has a good location and a very reasonable price, but I think I would choose somewhere else next time I go to Skopje.

Could not be more central. Rooms are basic, clean and with ensuite. Staff very friendly and helpful. Organized a trip to the Matka canyon and a transfer at 4am to the airport. Were met with a sandwich and a bottle of water for the journey. All for a very reasonable price. Recommended.

Room Tip: I had room 4, which seemed slightly larger than the others I saw.

It would be hard to get a better located hotel - next to the river, 100m from stone bridge and 300m from old town. All the development in Skopje is outside the hotel and the prices are sure to rise. Staff are friendly and helpful but lack knowledge of local transport and recommend taxis whereas a bus to everywhere seems to cost 50p, including lake matka a must do attraction 40 mins away. Central location means bar noise is high and hotel has bars front and back which are noisy at the weekend. No kettle and rooms can be a bit tight for space
