“Quite possibly the worst hotel I've ever stayed in!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Was a bit sceptical when I read other reviews but have to say this hotel lived up to its billing as a terrible hotel!

Staff were initially unfriendly, apart from the Porter who was a jolly chap considering the dump he worked in, and the room terrible.

Dirty marks all over the walls, scruffy bedding, no mini bar, a dodgy looking air conditioning unit, dirtywindows secured with expanding foam that had not been trimmed down, smelly corridors, threadbare carpets, a bath that had not been sealed properly hence when I ran the shower all black mold came washing out from under the bath, a sink where the plug would not open, a safe that didn't work; need I go on!

This hotel has not been updated or improved for years and it shows.

Do not stay here you will regret it!

Simple: rooms are dirty, the overall building is old, AC does not work(it's actually physically broken), blankets smell, there is nothing in the minibar, and when my friend phoned the reception they told us "no we can't bring you any!", the internet does not work, the staff is rude and unhelpful and indifferent, you can not sleep because of the noise coming from the surrounding places. The bottom line: go find somewhere civilized!

Breakfast is poor. Waiter annoying as hell. Room is clean, and recently renovated, but maid starts entering at 8:00 without knocking, without asking, and continuing every 15min. There are much better hotels in Skopje than this one

It has been 6 years now since I didn’t went back to Skopje returned to Skopje. Went there few weeks ago. I was very surprised by the changes in the countries and in the Hotel. Rooms which have been restored are very pleasant. Staff is attentive and smiling, always ready to help…. It was a very good price for the quality of service and food I received in the hotel. The room service is cool and my room was very clean. They have a laundry which is really useful; they washed and iron my shirts in less then 2hrs which was very convenient as I had a meeting. The proximity with the center is a plus only few Minutes buy car. You can also walk ( I would say 15min walk). I also could see so many changes in the city. The center is completely different, becoming modern with new brands. Much status everywhere. There is a huge status of Alexander the great in the center.

Given the price-service ratio there are betterr options in town than the Continental. Rooms(even the renovated ones) are on the shabby side, as is the restaurant. The surroundings are definitely unattractive.

My packaged tour had me staying in the Continental. It is about a 20-minute walk into town and also to the old town, so there are hotels which are handier to these places.

I stayed on an unrenovated floor, and it was really looking quite tired. The walls needed repainting. As for the room itself, the furnishings were ageing graciously, so I was okay with that - then I looked up at the ceiling - rotting timbers that should have been replaced ages ago.

Some staff were apathetic and po-faced, whilst others were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the main road.
