Finding the Villa St. Sofija with a GPS is a nightmare. Once you finally find the place, you need to hope that their one parking space is free (it was for us). From there on in, the place is great. It was a private home until a couple of decades ago when it was remade into a hotel. There are no lifts (get used to it) and it's not right on the lake...but it's very close. When we arrived, Zoran greeted us and grabbed our suitcases, which he then lugged up to our "apartment" (separate sitting room) on the second floor (3rd floor in America). Both he and Goce on the earlier shift are GREAT. They make this very nice hotel GREAT. They didn't seem bothered by our questions and went out of their way to make sure that we got what we felt we needed (we didn't ask for anything TOO extravagant). Even the bed linens just smelled fresh...never noticed that in any hotel before.....
