This hotel is a 3 star hotel, it is located in the middle on no where. The hotel advertises are pool however this is only for "display" this was very disappointing, the toilet broke twice and we had to wait for it to be fixed. The rooms are very, very standard and average. I paid 125 euro per night for... More

Stayed for a week at 88 euros per night. It's an OK hotel, very quiet, saw no more than 6 other guests in a week. Located just off the bazaar, 10 minutes walk from the Stone Bridge. Some interesting sights very close by, two hamams, 2 caravanserai, the green market. The approach to the hotel is untidy, unprepossessing and dirty.... More

Not as good as other hotels for the same price. I previously stayed at the hotel Duvet, they are both the same price at about 80 to 90 euros a night and this hotel is not as nice as the Duvet. The hotel is in a central location walking distance of the city centre and the hotel has a nice... More

I spent two nights at this hotel. Overall my experience was positive, and I shall return when the occasion arises again. The hotel benefits from a great location at the old bazaar district. Staff were exceptionally courteous, helpful and polite. The room (mine was on the fifth floor) was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Other services which were included were... More

The pool is in the middle if the restaurant on the 7th floor with a beautiful view of Skopje. Lovely area above the restaurant with bar and very attentive staff. We booked a suite which was nice. Big bathroom but water went everywhere when having a shower. Good location easy walk into the middle of Skopje and what a sight.... More

The rooms are beautiful and the staff accommodating but it is difficult to get into the main entrance and the pool was closed. That was a bit disappointing. Each room is different and creatively done. Most views are over the city.

The plusses are a great location at the old bazaar district, helpful and polite personnel, and ok facilities for my needs inluding free internet access which is slow but usable. A small minus was the Imam, who woke me up... More
