“Great location, shabby rooms, no air conditioning, noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

The location of this hotel, right in the old center, is its best feature. Perhaps we caught them at a bad time, during Ilinden week, but the rooms were in need of updating and cleaning; no air conditioning, dusty. The hosts were friendly and well meaning, but English wasn't spoken. Off-street parking is available, another plus. Keep looking, you can do better.

Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed at Villa Diamond for a total of 15 nights. We had a 2 bedroom apartment as there were 6 of us (2adults, 4 kids). They supplied the extra bedding so everyone was comfortable. The service was first class. Mende and his family made us feel right at home. Everything that we needed was supplied and never too much trouble. The room was clean and had aircon. There is wifi but it only works downstairs in the restaurant. But that was ok. Location is superb, right in the centre of town. The church next door with its bells did not bother us. After 2 weeks stay here, Mende and his family felt like dear friends. Their friendly nature and kindness to our kids endeared us to them. I look forward to our next trip to Macedonia, and we will definitely stay here again. Thank you Mende and family.

As a family we stayed in this hotel for 3 days( July 2013) which we found to be in the heart of the city with a lot of good restaurants ,shopping and entertainment.This hotel is family owned, the owner (Mende) is friendly also very helpful and english speaking.The room was simple, clean and cheap, with good bathroom.The service was very good,we hope to stay in this hotel next time we go to visit our family and friends in Macedonia.

Room Tip: Best is to call Villa Diamond Hotel and speak with owner of hotel.

I reserved just 2 days before by email and got an immediate positive answer. This is a very nice house close to everything important in Bitola. Service cannot be better, the manager makes good taxidaels. The room was simple, clean and cheap, with good bathroom. No airco but cool enough and we got a ventilator. Only we didn't like the churchbells at 7 in the morning and the neighbours dog barking like crazy...

Room Tip: The rooms above have balcony.

I made a reservation for a triple room but on arrival we got a single room and a double room. The double room was very nice, spacious and clean. The single room was small, maybe a little bit to small. The service was good, the people at this place speak english.
The location is right in the center of the town, next to the main shopping street of bitola with many restaurants around.
I left early in the morning, so I did not take breakfast at the hotel. Unfortunally I did not find any other place to get breakfast at that time.

I couldn't ask for better service! (and I consider myself very demanding when it comes to services :) ) Our experience was just great, hotel staff are very nice people who really care about every customer the best way they can, we got everything we asked for, meals prepared in way we asked for even though they were not in the menu,.. Our stay was really pleasant, thank you!

We could not ask for a better location, just around the corner from the main pedestrian street in Bitola. Hotel was a little difficult to find, but we phoned and a staff member came to our location to direct us to the hotel - great service! Our room (303) was large, very clean, and VERY quiet. Great air conditioner. Again, service was exceptional, from restaurant / bar service to arranging transportation to Ohrid. We would stay again if we visit Bitola.

Room Tip: We were not sure if all rooms had air conditioner - be sure to ask if this is important to you.
