“Lovely Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Don't be misled by the shabby appearance from the outside. The Hotel Centar inside is lovely! We stayed for 6 nights and chose this hotel because of its proximity to the center of Skopje and its numerous attractions. It was a leisurely 10-15 minutes walk! Nearby is also a big indoor shopping mall. The staff at the hotel are very friendly, there is free parking and wi-fi and they produce a good breakfast. Attached to the hotel is a big swimming pool which is free to hotel residents. Skopje is a marvelous city with lots to see and do. We will be back for sure!

Close to center of town, clean and basic, it has functional internet, great swimming pool and nice breakfast (excellent fresh bread). The staff is very friendly. The person who brought my suitcase upstairs refused the tip (he was actually slightly offended by it). They decided to keep my passport at the reception during my stay which, in some ways, felt safer.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

I was in Kosovo for 4 years with the UN mission and made several trips to Skopje enroute to other destinations or just for a day or 2 to get away. The hotel was in a great location, a short walk to the river, restaurants, and shopping. It was a basic but comfortable hotel. Beds were ok, a few basic TV stations, CNN International for the English speakers, and a small but nice bathroom. The hotel staff were also very polite and helpful and could arrange transportation to/from the Skopje airport or Kosovo border. The restaurant was small and basic and I only had breakfast there. At night I would head to the main square to either the Italian Restaurant or St. Patrick Irish pub. Excellent food at both. Lots of Brits at the pub. Lots of internationals and pretty ladies at the Italian restaurant. Its also a good place to "people watch" as its in the square. Don't let the outside looks of the hotel or the location scare you away. Its a great place for a great rate. Remember, its Skopje, Macedonia and not a Holiday Inn in the US. But if you are interested, there is a Holiday Inn a short walk away. My suggestion, save some $$$ and stay at the Centar.

From the outside this hotel looks terrible. It was built in very old swimming pool stadium, but inside the reception and hall have been renovated, so it doesn't feel that bad like when you see it from outside. Rooms are average, there are some basic staff. Beds and bathrooms are clean. Internet is ok and free. The prices are average.
Hotel is right next to Vero shopping centar and close to Old Baazar, the town's oldest shopping centre. Hotel is 5 minutes walk from city centar.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is billed as 3 star but my room was definitely far far from that. It hadn't seen basic fixing for many years, probably decades. The hotel is really part of a fairly run-down indoor swimming pool stadium, probably from the late 70ies.
Having said that, the reception and breakfast room have been renovated recently and they are fine, the breakfast pretty basic, still reminding of great socialist times.
Some of my friends stayed at the ground floor and their rooms were renovated and nicer, so that may be the difference. If all is renovated, this will be a decent 2 star hotel, never 3 star.
Btw, 'center' is also to be taken broadly: the center is within walking distance.
I have stayed in nicer places in Skopje, like "Square" (which does deserve its name) and another one near the stadium park.

Room Tip: ask for renovated room
