3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

nice hotel, good location, and terrible internet (which btw costs 12 EUR per day). i complained about it but no result.- 1st class ripoff. rooms are bit old, but OK. nice sauna avilable at no surcharge, and that is a plus.
average grade for the hotel in general.

Thank you for your feedback. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide comfortable and friendly accommodations. We appreciate your nice comment regarding the sauna and for finding our location to be convenient.

However, We’re sorry about the internet access. We will look into this point. I assure you the feedback of our hotel will be reviewed and most certainly forwarded to the appropriate departments. We take the confidence our guests place in us very seriously and work diligently to rectify any unsatisfactory experiences. We hope you give us a chance in the future to show you how great our hotel is.

Sincerely,

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I was on a business trip and spent two nights in a hotel. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good, nice choice of meals and drinks. My room was overlooking old stone bridge. Internet connection is not free of charge which is a minus for a four star hotel. The only thing that annoyed is that cleaning ladies knocks on the door even around 8.30 am: first morning I thought it was mistake but it happened again the next morning. Be sure to check this with the reception.

I stayed here for a few days for Business and I found the place to be very functional but not really with any charm.

The rooms are a bit worn out and could do with a refurb, although the bathroom look much newer and was much better.

The (paid for) wifi had good signal strength but still had some issues as it would connect but then pages would not show. Once they had to reset the router, and another time I just gave up (I did complain and get my money back, but that was not the point as I needed it for work).

The location however is excellent. Right next to a shopping centre, the river and with bars and restaurants lining the street to the old town which is just 5 mins away.

I have stayed now in Skopje several times and this is not the worst I have stayed in and would probably stay here again without any qualms.

Here on business for 2 nights, it is a functional place with a shopping mall next door, the obligatory Irish bar around the corner and well located for the city centre. Overall a bit bland but we were pretty busy so didn't get to check out all the facilities. You could probably do better if you shop around. I can't comment on the price as the firm picked up the tab. I would agree that anywhere else this would be a 3 star hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights for business and was pleased with my stay. I'd note that while the signs claim that it is a 5-star hotel (which it may well be when compared with other hotels in Skopje), it is really a 3-star by European and US standards. My room was of average size, had a comfy bed, and was quiet. The room was very clean and had a decent selection of English-language television channels. The only two minor complaints: the pillowa are all so soft that my neck hurt every morning -- even the pillows labeled "firm" (they were jst as soft as the "soft" pillows). Also, there were no amenities in the bathroom except for a combo shampoo/bath gel set-up in the shower and some liquid soap in a dispenser near the bathroom sink. The gym downstairs was pretty minimalist, but it was adequate for the few days that I was there. Lastly, the location was very convenient. A 5-minute walk to the old stone bridge and main square and even less than that to a string of restaurants and pubs.
