Fantastic location in the old part of town. This is not a typical hotel, but lots of "old world" charm. Each room is a bit different, and it definitely has an Eastern European feel to it. The staff were nice and the rooms were clean. You can basically have anything you want for breakfast, just ask. Just know this is... More

Charming architecture of old town houses , nice lakeside restaurants and St.Clement Church . A visit to the church and conversing with the guide (Ph.D) Ms.Poposka was an oustanding experience . The pedestrian street bears cute jewellery shops selling Ohrid pearl , made of compressed seashell powder , however looking quite stylish . All i have chatted in the shops... More

Excellent stay at Villa St. Sofija and would definitely stay here on my next trip to Ohrid! Great location, comfortable and clean rooms, and a very nice staff who answered my questions about tourism to the area.

The room was huge, traditional decor, with a mini bar, fresh fruit everyday, and a selection of books to read. The bed was really comfortable, the shower had a multitude of controls but the temperature control was hard to control. The view wasnt great but from my room I could just see a part of Lake Ohrid. It is located... More

Fantastic hotel. The staff could not do enough for you. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The location is pretty much perfect. The breakfast is huge. The only warning I'd give is finding it. My sat nav wanted to take me up Ulica Kosta Abras. But this is one-way road, which my sat nav didn't seem to understand. If you... More

The staff made this stay awesome. Parking is a bit of a pain mostly because of the streets - not the hotel's fault. They helped us get an awesome spot and saved it for us. They also let us keep the car there for a bit after we checked out. Location is amazing and the guys who work there are... More

This is a mediocre place that for some inexplicable reason has a better rating than it deserves. The promised private parking is the occasional street parking, the wifi in room very unstable, no views or balconies to speak of. Worst is the shower, where one has to struggle to get a hint of warm water, forget about hot. Breakfast is... More

Thanks to previous reviews we booked 4 nights here as part of our 2 week Balkan adventure. This was the best hotel we stayed in. So pleased with everything, I think we had the deluxe Suite. It was huge! Even the bed was comfortable! The staff were polite and efficient, nothing too much trouble. Fresh fruit every day in the... More

Great location in the beautiful old town of Ohrid with a view of Sveta Sofija from our room. Staff are helpful and breakfast is nice and can be eaten at tables outside at the front of the hotel. The bedroom, bathroom and the public rooms look very dated and the air conditioning in the room was not very effective (it... More
