We spent 2 nights at Villa St.Sofija on our trip to Greece. The villa is a beautiful and very clean property located in the old city centre. You can simply walk everywhere from the port to the historical sites. We had beautiful appartment with a balcony with nice view on the old city. We just missed an athmosphere at this... More

Very welcoming hotel situated next to St Sofia Church (rather tricky to find). Just a couple of minutes walk to the lake side with restaurants and bars nearby. Spacious and comfortable room with air conditioning which was wonderful. We had a double room with a cosy adjoining living room - very clean and inviting, with a plate full of delicious... More

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... More

Service and location are the main attraction of this well-situated gem. There is one parking spot just behind the hotel. Ask the staff to save it for you when you reserve your room. The folks at the front desk are really quite special. All I can say is, "service with a smile". The rooms are spacious and relatively comfortable, if... More

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!

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... More

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... More

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).
