“Not cheap at all”
Reviewed 15 September 2008

We stayed at Stone Bridge for 1 night but it was enough!
When you enter the hotel you say WOW! but when you enter the room you say HMMM.
Our room was very small and definitely not clean (I saw some hair - other person"s hair - on the bathroom floor and also in the shower/bath tube).
Some stains....strange stains on the walls all over the room....
Also the room had a "wonderful" view so I could see how a "grandmother" cooks her dinner in an apartment next to our window (sorry 10 meters away!).
The location is good, in the center of the town. You can visit also the old business town as well as the new part of it.

We arrived late in Skopje and found our way to this hotel after some difficulty with traffic and directions. It's very much a "corporate" sort of place and quite expensive, Having said that it is a good hotel and probably comparable in cost to other capital city hotels. It's well located and parking was easy. Rooms were very nice, as you would expect for the price, Shower system was quite elaborate but promised more than it delivered.

Breakfast in the top floor panoramic restaurant was very good.

This is a nice hotel but you can probably get others that are perfectly adequate by western standards for less than1/3 of the price if, unlike us, you book ahead or are better prepared.

  • Liked — High quality
  • Disliked — Cost and a bit nondescript despite efforts internally.

Visiting from Australia we stayed for 20 days in a very modern apartment known as Apartment Kale. With 2 young children ages 7 and 4 it was a major priority where we were to stay. Stonebridge Hotel and staff were of impecable excellence, phenomenal service, food was scrumptious and the staff were always willing to help with any of our needs. The location is unbeatable, central to eveything and the facilities in the hotel were above and beyond. The boys enjoyed the pool and half the time were entertaining the staff (who knew at every point where our children were). The apartment was cleaned with attention to deatil, we had warm water at all times in the jacoozi and we have travelled the world and stayed at 5 star and 6 star hotels and have to rate this one up there. Well done Stonebridge you deserve acknowledgement at its best. We will be staying with you every visit to Skopje. It is nice to know you can finally trust a hotel. Definitely recommended with families with children (apartment only). 10 out of 10..............

  • Liked — Phenomenal service, great facilities, central, convenient, clean, friendly staff always willing to be at your side. We stayed in apartment Kale for 20 days and have had the best time thanks to the easy nature of the hotel in all aspects. Will stay again and again and again. 10 out of 10 service
  • Disliked — If I was to fault the hotel it was the use of the indoor spa downstairs it was not full at all times, however, if you gave them 1hr notice they have no issues filling it up for you.

Pluses: Excellent location in the centre for exploring both the bazaar area and the newer part of the city over the bridge. Good parking. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Great view from top floor restaurant.

Minuses: "Jacuzzi" didn't work - no plug. We enquired and they sent up a grungy replacement (which didn't fit either). Small swimming pool in basement was freezing - couldn't get in. Chaotic front desk. They forgot to return our passports when we left (our fault too, of course, for forgetting them). They helpfully tried to send them on to our next stop in Ohrid but ended up only managing to send one of the two we left! We eventually changed plans to return via Skopje to make sure we retrieved the other!

Overall a decent stay and no major problems. But if they want the 4-5 star rating, they should make sure their amenities and facilities work year-round.

Very 4-5 star, brand new. Decor is nice but gaudy - apparently a Macedonian millionaire couple owns it and she decorated herself. Several things weren't working yet (indoor pool, sauna etc.) but mostly because we were there the month that they opened. Good restaurant on 6th floor. Hotel is well located - the main plaza is a quick walk across the bridge - convenient. Staff was good. Beds were rock hard, not good. Great internet access in room. Great showers - the stalls have radios and different water effects in them, like a hot tub. Hotel brochure is very old-school communist sexist thinking - women in negligees draped over men conducting business!! But that's the worst thing I can say about this hotel.
