4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed in June 2016 and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The decor and bathroom were not the newest but the charm of the place more than compensates for ageing bathroom fittings. My only major gripe was that the air conditioning doesn't work and I suspect from prior reviews hasn't worked for some time. I was really angry... More

Lovely hotel, comfortable room, nice breakfast, great location, and would definitely recommend it, but be careful if you're thinking of driving your car and using the free parking. Driving in old town Ohrid is miserable - very narrow, one-way cobblestone streets where you have to dodge pedestrians - and so just be prepared. And the hotel's restaurant is nice too,... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a super time. Our hosts were friendly, warm and welcoming. Our suite was just lovely, very spacious. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone visiting Ohrid. Situated in the old town it's opposite the church (Sv Sofia) and just a two minute walk from the lake side. We ate here as well - the... More

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Our room (202) had a good view of the the Church of St Sophia. It was a good size and had a small lounge attached. It was also very quiet - we were convinced we were the only guests but in fact every room was full. The shower was warm and... More

I'm so glad we picked this hotel. It is perfectly located in the centre of the old town and has a real charm about it. Customer service was great as staff were so friendly and helpful. On our last day they ordered us a taxi, gave us a drink on the house while we waited, and even accompanied us to... More

Excellent location if you're seeking charm and history in the old center of the city. Just beware your GPS -- it definitely was not easy to find, and we went in circles looking for it the first time around. The staff was pleasant and the family apartment was huge, with a view of the old cathedral, beautifully lit at night.... More

Perfectly located in the old town of Ohrid the Villa St. Sofija is a nice little hotel. Our two room suite with balcony over looked the beautiful old Sveta Sofija Cathedral. The rooms were decorated with traditional, tasteful formal furniture. The staff at the front desk was always helpful and accommodating in every way. In fact they brought up a... More
