“Clean & Comfortable”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

I stayed at this hotel for three nights for business and was pleased with my stay. I'd note that while the signs claim that it is a 5-star hotel (which it may well be when compared with other hotels in Skopje), it is really a 3-star by European and US standards. My room was of average size, had a comfy bed, and was quiet. The room was very clean and had a decent selection of English-language television channels. The only two minor complaints: the pillowa are all so soft that my neck hurt every morning -- even the pillows labeled "firm" (they were jst as soft as the "soft" pillows). Also, there were no amenities in the bathroom except for a combo shampoo/bath gel set-up in the shower and some liquid soap in a dispenser near the bathroom sink. The gym downstairs was pretty minimalist, but it was adequate for the few days that I was there. Lastly, the location was very convenient. A 5-minute walk to the old stone bridge and main square and even less than that to a string of restaurants and pubs.

I spend one night at this hotel in Nov 2012. It seemed like the only option downtown Skopje.

This time there was a compelling reason to choose this hotel, and it was a good stay. The breakfast offers a wide variety of choices. You can use computers for free at the business office. But the Internet in the room was EUR12 a day (the connection was very good), and the room charge is also at least twice as expensive as other good options. So, I believe I will not stay in this hotel with my business budget some time soon, if not forever. I have to say the location is very good.

I have no idea what the other hotels in Skopje are like, but this one is definitely OK. The location is perfect, just between the business area, the new center and the old town. So pretty much everything you might need is within walking distance.
Although it is an international chain hotel, the service and the rooms remind one of the good old times in Yugoslavia: The staff is not particularly friendly and well trained, at first glance everything looks nice, but those who look closer will see things like mold in the bathroom or cracks in the walls behind chairs and curtains. Sometimes the fire alarm goes off, but it does not seem to bother anyone.
Breakfast is rather basic, do not expect European Standard, especially when in comes to the quality of ham, sausages or juice. For the price they ask, I would expect more!

Room Tip: The higher up the better, the rooms out back have privet balcony's, but then you might be bother...

Perhaps the best what the hotel can offer is location – central and close to walking area and main city square. Given the quality of service, food and rooms, this is ridiculously over priced option. Check out takes doesn’t take time but calendar. Breakfast is at two star level. Service is archaic type of public-servant ignorance. Rooms have not seen decorator for a good decade or more. Not worth longer comment.

I stayed here 14 years ago when it was the "Grand Hotel" and has been rebranded as a Holiday Inn . As Skopje goes, it has a great central location and decent accommodations. It's labeled "five star" and I suppose that is relative since three star by international standards is more accurate. The rooms are fine, but the awful shampoo/body wash plastic dispensers glued to the bathroom walls turned me off. And the 12 euro charge for internet which I refused to pay really frosted me. There is a business center which they let you use for free, however. The breakfast, included, was just average. This would be better off as a Holiday Inn Express and throw in the free internet as they do.
