“Worst bed we have ever slept on!!!!Like sleeping on a table!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

Yes, the Duvet is very central. Rooms are a good size and are nicely decorated. They offer tea/coffee making facilities, safety deposit boxes and complimentary wifi. The staff was pleasant and helpful but the MATRESS was the worst we have ever slept on. I could swear they forgot the matress and only bought box springs... Really, we slept on a box spring with not even an inch of padding!!!!! For a 4 star hotel this is unacceptable!!!

If you don't mind sleeping on the floor or on top of a table, then this is the hotel for you!!!! Go ahead, stay here and enjoy a great night's sleep.

Room Tip: Do not stay here!!!! We peeked through the opened doors of two other rooms and all the matresses wer...

First of all, this review is for the old Duvet Hotel. That one has been shut down and relocated.

The new and improved Duvet was opened October 1, 2012 and the beds now are the same ones as in The Venetian Macau. I can say with great confidence that there aren't higher quality mattresses in Skopje as a whole. We have acted upon the feedback from our guests and thus we have left the old building completely and have moved to a high-tech new office center.
I hope this clarifies things a little. We appreciate all the feedback and criticism from our valued guests and are acting on as many suggestions as possible.

Kind regards,
Branko Mladenovski

Small hotel, with just few rooms, very well placed at the city center of Skopje, near the big square close to the river. The rooms are quite new, well equipped, with free wifi internet. The breakfast is quite ok, but don't expect something outstanding. Good relation quality/price. The only problem is that is not very well indicated, it took me ages to find the entrance! It is a shame that it does not belong to any big chain of hotels where to receive miles for every stay...

The location is perfect, almost everything is in walking distance – once you found the hotel, since it only has a little plate on the front showing your're at the right place. The hotel occupies the 4th floor of a business building right behind the "ploschad macedonia" central square. The room was clean and spacious, stuff was friendly and spoke english and german (maybe among others...). The Duvet is a no-frills hotel where you feel the efforts made to bring some atmosphere into a otherwise boring bulding. Decide yourself weather you like the style...

Hotel Duvet also has apartments available at duvetaps.com.
We, a family of 5, stayed here for 3 nights in total, 2 when we arrived and 1 night before we flew back from Skopje.
The apartment is huge, has 2 bedrooms and a big sofabed. Internet and breakfast in the hotel is included.
Keep in mind that the apartment is not in the same building as the hotel. Additionally the hotel is difficult to find as it doesn't have big signs on the outside, just a plaque with the name of the hotel on it.
Like the hotel, the apartment is located in the city center.
We paid 100 euros per night, cheaper than 2 rooms in the hotel.

I have come to Skopje several times now on business, and have sampled a range of the "international " hotels. The Hotel Duvet surpasses all the rest (which were all perfectly decent, I must note). Good-sized rooms, nicely decorated (comfortable bed, good lighting, GREAT shower, flat-screen TV, enough clothes hangers, tea & coffee facilities, etc). Excellent location - just off the main square, restaurants, bars, etc, and close by the river. Free and fast internet, and nice helpful staff. The hotel is small - it only has 10 rooms - which gives it a friendly feel. Only downside is no eating facilities in the hotel (except breakfast), but hey, with all those great restaurants within a few minutes walk, that's not big deal. Not budget accommodation, but fairly reasonable - I paid €77 a night for a "business" room.Standard rooms (not sure what the difference is) are a little cheaper.

I stayed in this hotel in September 2008 for four nights and would definitely stay here again

I would say for Skopje the Duvet Hotel is probably at the more expensive end of the market but is still good value for money, we paid 90 euros per night for a double room which included breakfast

The hotel is located in a great location of Skopje literally 1 minute off Makedonija Square thus making it a good base to explore the many delights of Skopje!

The hotel could be a little tricky to find for the first time if arriving by yourself at night as the sign for the hotel is quite small, we arrived in the early evening from Skopje airport by taxi so we had no problems finding it

The hotel is located at the top floor of the building accessible by a lift, the lift is relatively small so if there are more than 2 people arriving with luggage it might be advisable to make a couple of trips to avoid over crowding

Hotel Duvet has 10 rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms with shower cubicles, the showers are great!

All rooms are stylishly decorated with flat screen tv’s, the room also has air conditioning which came in very handy as the temperatures in Skopje were still in the 30’s even in September

The hotel reception area also has a separate area for serving breakfast, I’m afraid I didn’t make breakfast any of the days so I cant say how it was, there is no bar in the hotel but there is a mini bar in the bedroom with beers, wines soft drinks and snacks, also in the reception area cold drinks (beers, soft drinks) are in a small fridge and can be purchased from reception

The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful with many of the questions we had during our stay

The hotel can also organise an airport transfer, I am not sure if they do a pick up service from the airport to the hotel but they gave us a lift from the hotel to the airport for our flight for 25 euros, this is something I would recommend as the taxi drivers in Skopje will charge a higher rate

All in all I enjoyed my stay in the hotel and would have no hesitation in staying in this hotel again and would recommend to friends or family
