“Good hotel just outside the centre”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

The hotel is decorated in an old-fashioned way which I really liked, it gave it a personal touch, so to say. The owners are really friendly and speak English very well. They gave us advise about where to eat and where to go which was really usefull. When we arrived we could choose between two rooms since the hotel wasn't fully booked. Breakfast was until 10 o'clock, but it turned out to be no problem at all to have it a little later. There's also a little garden, very enjoyable. Wifi worked perfect. The shower was a little annoying though, after using it the whole bathroom floor was wet. But that's the only thing, the bed was good and there was no noise of other guests.

The positivea - big rooms, well furnoshed and fairly clean. Also good service but that depends who is working when you arrive.
The negatives - the junk (a broken bed and ripped out door blocked the stairs up to room number 11 - then little things like an eiffel tower in the entrance way)
The part renovation - adding modern things such as air con which have not been fitted properly with wires blocking my way out to the balcony. Also i had to choice between air con and a fridge as there was only 1 plug socket avaliable
Overall, the owners seem to have given up on this, what could be such a nice place with such a small amount spent on it

This is a small hotel runs by two brothers since many years ago - over 25. The owners are very kind and helpful, for example Darko has explained us everything during our stay about Skopje and Macedonia and the things we can do. The hotel it's a little bit difficult to reach if you're travelling by car (even if you're using a GPS), but no problems, just ask the inhabitans and they we'll guide you. If you're not by car, the taxi prices are not expensive. The hotel it's in a quiet area (even if close at hand are many public works) and you can park your car for free on the street, in front of the hotel. The room wasn't for sure the same as a Hilton, but it's OK, breakfast was decent, very good WIFI signal. The hotel has not elevator, the cleanliness and the furniture of the room and bathroom should be improved.
In a word, if you want to save your money, go definitely at Kapistec.

Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. No fruits or veggies for the breakfast :-). Free wifi and parking place can be found nearby. OK for an overnight stay, a short taxi drive from the centre.

Kapistec is a not terrible cheap hotel in Skopje run by the family that owns it. They are nice people, helpfu, they speak English. The hotel has wifi that usually works. It takes credit cards, but, like most places that take credit cards in Macedonia, the credit card machine never works. The hotel is NOT central at all - it's a good 30 minute walk to the center. Taxis however can be easily obtained by walking over to the McDonald's near the hotel. There is also a Vero supermarket nearby, a great restaurant called Makedonska Kuka. Other minuses: it's not overly clean. For example they replace your towels every day but a lot of the clean towels they bring you smell like mildew and rot. The facilities, especially the bathrooms, are cleanish, but in a way that says "clean enough, but we're not really trying". Would I go back? Yes, but only if I really wanted to save money. If you have the means, stay somewhere nicer.

Room Tip: Room 4 is close to the hotel's 2 different wifi routers - when one stops working, you can use th...

Nice hotel, run by the owners, also nice staff around. More than helpful in all cases... Not much else to say... always found parking place in the immediate vicinity. Although the hotel is not in the center, but that`s not a huge issue.
