“Great hotel, brilliant location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We had a great time in Ohrid thanks to this hotel. The hotel is brilliantly situated, about 5 minutes walk from the center. The team was friendly and helpful and the rooms and hotel were spotless. Very relaxing and convenient - definitely recommended!

Room Tip: Deluxe suite 201 room with balcony.

I spent a grand total of 30 seconds researching this booking and must say it was FANTASTIC! My partner and I drove down from Skopje to Ohrid for a few nights and stayed here and had a wonderful time. The wait staff was incredible and very friendly. We had a fantastic room with a beautiful view and wonderful sleigh couches to rest on. For breakfast we were both surprised to be greeted by a staff member who asked us what we wanted for breakfast. Shortly after our breakfast was presented just as we ordered. We were both surprised by this service since we would have been content with a breakfast buffet. The setting is very close to the too the top restaurants in Ohrid and it was a pleasure to stay there.

I was feeling very privileged to have the opportunity to stay in this beautiful hotel. Ohrid old town itself in spring is magical! I love Ohrid very much when it's so quiet.
Nikola offered me an upgrade to a bigger room. The room was magnificent, the interiors, the carpets, the chandeliers lighting and the furniture are so classically beautiful. The bathroom amenities are first class. The breakfast was top-notch!
I would definitely stay at this hotel anytime when I come to visit Ohrid again!

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

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
