We loved staying at this charming hotel. The large family room was beautifully appointed and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking is a little tricky which has to be along the narrow lanes but the reception staff helped with finding a spot.

The location was wonderful, the staff was very polite and most important: there is no deadline for breakfast!. But the building is old and the bathroom equipment was very poor (no amenities, no hairdryer).

This hotel is located in the old town and within walking distance of all the Ohrid sights. The hotel was a fantastic price. The hotel staff was very helpful and assisted with everything from bus tickets and how to see some of the sights off the beaten path.

The hotel is located within the old town in a quiet area. You can drive in to the hotel but will have to negotiate the one way streets. Parking was available.

The building is traditional and quite charming. Our room was large and well furnished. However, there were only single beds available when we booked some months in advance. Not a problem but we were surprised that the sheets seemed too small for the beds and pulled out during the night. Might have been due to a somewhat restless night as the toilet kept running during the night and sounds from other rooms also intruded. Not a major concern again but annoying.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is in a beautiful room and made to order.

Room Tip: Check the plumbing

Small hotel with only 5 rooms. Recommend at least Suite. Did not eat dinner at restaurant but menu looked very good. Good location in the old town to visit sites. Breakfast ok; made to order not buffet. I would likely stay again.

Very good location close to the church Saint Sofia and most of the good restaurants. We stayed in the deluxe apartment which was huge, with  great views of the lake and the mountains. It was comfortably furnished in old-fashioned style matching the style of the half timbered building.

Service is friendly and efficient. Great breakfast (although the background music can be awful....Macedonian folk music rather an acquired taste!). 

Room Tip: Deluxe apartment with lake view is the room to stay in.
