We stayed at Villa Ohrid for two nights paying £19 a night for double bedroom with private bathroom, the apartment is beautiful and a bargain for the price!
We stayed in the lilac room which is a good sized room; spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, air-con/heating, fridge, access to shared kitchen and reliable free Wi-Fi but the best feature is definitely the balcony which has a stunning view of the lake. The owners’ parents who live next to the apartment were friendly and welcoming (our taxi driver had no problem finding the apartment, just ask for the old ampitheatre)
The location suited us (due to the fantastic views!) around a five minute walk to the main town (bars/restaurants/shops) and the fortress and ten minutes’ walk through beautiful scenery to Church of St. John Kaneo built overlooking the lake (there’s also a small shop close by), it’s really peaceful and we slept well. However, the location will not be suitable for everyone as it’s a walk up a steep hill coming back from town.
Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone; I can honestly say it’s one of best maintained and well-presented places I have stayed during my travels.
**FYI, don't listen to some of the taxi drivers who congregate around the bus station - they will persistently tell you that you've missed your bus or that it’s been cancelled, check details with the ticket office or tourist information they are really helpful and speak good English (they will also give you detailed information and times of buses to Albania)**
