Based on many rave reviews around the web, we decided to stay at Villa Sofija during our vacation in Ohrid. This may be the reason that we are a bit disappointed with this hotel. Overall, it is good, but not excellent (as the reviews suggested), and there is definitely room for improvement. The staff were friendly (though not exceptionally so)... More

The reason I enjoyed it more than most was because I got upgraded to a suite, so I am a bit biased. It is nice conservatively decorated place and the suite had a private balcony, large lounge room and bedroom with ensuite. The reception staff spoke english and were helpful. The property is clean and well looked after and there... More

Villa St. Sofija is wonderfully located in the heart of the old town among the bars and restaurants and only a minute from the lake. As mentioned in other reviews, it is difficult to find among the cobbled, one-way streets and the parking is very limited. I parked by the port then walked around until I found it but they... More

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
