Kapistec is clean. Breakfast has not a big variety but is good and homemade. Stuff is friendly and gave us map and when I asked the open hours for memorial house of mother teressa they searched it on internet. I recomend it!!!!!

We stayed in the Kapistec during our Balkan trip and were absolutely satisfied, but it is definitely a budget hotel. You get what you pay – and from my perspective, this hotel is a pretty good deal.
Pros: Fair price, excellent breakfast, safe area (close to some embassies, e.g. the Austrian embassy is just a few metres away), free parking on the street and a very helpful owner (thx Darko, he also helped us organizing a taxi to the gypsy village Sutka and – very convenient – he speaks English very well).
Cons: It´s a budget hotel – not too big room, dated interior and the bathroom is a little smelly. As it was mentioned in a few reviews, the location is good from a safety and neighborhood perspective, but it is far from the city center. We are a young couple and walking faster than 35 minutes to the stone bridge isn´t possible in our opinion. However, taxi is very cheap from the city center to the hotel (we payed around € 2,50 one way), so this is no con from our perspective.
Would definitely stay there again, especially the breakfast was awesome…

Aaaaah,the Kapistec!You'll love it.The staff is absolutely wonderful,the rooms are large,well-equipped,comfortable and spacious,the breakfast is fine and it's relatively close to the centre of Skopje.I'd give it 9.6 out of 10,despite a few problems which I had there.

I began and ended a tour of Macedonia at this hotel,so I stayed there twice,on both occasions for a short time.It's a little difficult to find but is situated about 2 kilometres west of Skopje,off the Boulevard Mitropol Golganov.Once you've found it there's a few bars and restaurants near
Golganov itself and a big Vero supermarket on the same road about 250 metres further away from the centre of Skopje.

With regard to the problems which I had during my first stay:there was a loose panel in the shower which meant that it wouldn't close properly;on attemting to open the curtain one morning,it came off the rail into my hand and,upon turning on the bedroom light,the shade was so loose that it fell to the floor.Maybe I was just plain unlucky,but when I reported the scene of devastion that was my room to the female receptionist(who had worked for five years in the U.S.A. and spoke excellent English),she told me not to worry and that everything could be fixed!
I would point out that,during my second stay at the hotel,I was given another room where,fortunately,everything stayed intact.

You have to love the Kapistec,you really do It's one of the few places I've stayed at where the staff treat you as one of their own and bend over backwards to help you,if you have any problems.I'd willingly stay there again,at any time.

If the only reason you stayed at this hotel was to get all the help you might possibly need about visiting Skopje as well as the rest of Macedonia you would be happy. Darko is very attentive to email and answers promptly with all the information you need. His English is excellent and along with Sasha and Nadia they will give you maps, books, make phone calls, check bus schedules...anything to make your stay in their hotel and city and the rest of the country a wonderful experience. The hotel location is good with just a five minute walk to the ATM, large grocery store and several bus lines. Enjoy your stay!

Stayed here for a weekend trip in February. Certainly a budget level of accomodation, but well run, clean with nice quiet location. If you want to be in the middle of the action then this place is not for you. Cab ride to the center is 300-400 denars or 15 minute walk. Good part of this location is that its in a quiet, safe neighborhood.

The hotel is in a very nice and securised placement in Skopje. The staff is very helpfull and cooperative. The hotel was clean. The breakfast was nice for that price. You can walk to everywhere in Skopje. But the rooms a very small.

very nice place and location, a place giving you the feeling of a friendly home, nice people, good breakfast, good restaurants nearby like Nostalgia and Macedonian House, shopping at Vero supermarket very close, parking free in front of hotel on a quiet street near embassies and villas, no traffic or noise but close to boulevards so it is easy to get on your way, all the confort you need. If you have time visit Matka Canyon, it is very close.
