“Very basic hotel, ok location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

Hotel is part of three-hotel complex (Bellevue, Metropole and Tourist). You use all facilities of the nextdoor Metropole hotel. Tourist is only rooms.

The hotel was very basic (think old Soviet glory, and very little renovation since). However the rooms were clean, although not very well maintained. Just book a bed & breakfast and def. not full board. Its too expensive compared to what you can get in Ohrid. The hotel is about 7km from Ohrid. Its a 300 dinar taxi ride to the centre which is a little less that 5 euro's. Food in the center is quite good, depending on retaurants, of which there are quite a few.

The pebble stone beach is nice. The "beach" is a narrow 15 meter strip, but quite long. Make the walk to some nicer locations farther from the hotel to get more comfy seats and better service. The Johnny Walker beach cafe has some soft seats, where on others you only get a plastic chair. For all seats you pay 100 dinars for the whole day. Go at about 11 and the beach is virtually empty, while all macedonians seem to come between 12 and 2.

Its worth hiring a car and going about to mavrovo, sv naum, struga, bitolla and albania around the lake. There are organised excursions as well, but then youre more confined to the hotel (if you dont want to take a taxi back and forth to Ohrid).

Service in the hotel is more friendly ot Macedonians, partly I guess because they speak little English or German in the hotel (or most of the other Macedonian tourist places).

The morning sun blasts into the room. The curtains help only very little to block it out at 6 am!

The hotel is cheap. Dont have to high expectations. The surroundings def. make up for it.

Room Tip: Aks for lake view on the top floor. Other floors look out on the trees.
