“Great location, dinky hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

We were in this hotel for 4 days. You can't beat the location. It's on the central pedestrian street across from the Mother Theresa museum. Great cafes and restaurants, and the Old City is a few minutes walk. But, you can tell this is an old socialist-era hotel that's been renovated. In some ways that's charming.

They have a fitness center, but it was locked our entire stay. They have an empty restaurant -- unclear why you'd eat at the Best Western restaurant when there are tons outside. They offered a free breakfast with the room, but it really wasn't worth eating (esp. when there are great coffee shops and and two bakeries on the same block.) Price is much better than Holiday Inn and it included wifi, which Holiday Inn did not. We'd probably stay here again, but would look first for other options. There evidently is a boutique hotel in the area as well. The one problem for some travelers is that the hotel is on a pedestrian street. Taxis/cars need to drop you off at the end of the street and you have to walk to the hotel from there (about half a block). Not a problem for us, but could be one if you have a lot of luggage.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front of the hotel, so you have a view.

Old fashion hotel with aged rooms. You will get the scent of the communist past but also some standard *** quality. A location is great - however parking is quite challenging (you need to drive over the whole central pedestrian zone!). The breakfast is quite poor and so are all the auxiliary hotel facilities.

It was fine- rooms clean. nice view over street (on my room anyway),staff speak good English and pleasant. It is a chain hotel and like everything in Skopje a bit old fashioned but good enough. And the location is very good (though, be warned, very hard for taxis to get to, so better to ask them to drop you (pick you up) close rather than at the door

Location is only plus for this, outdated, smelly place. Breakfast - very poor choice. Room - small and not so clean. Bathroom not according to standards. I was there for business purposes only so I had to survive that two nights but newer again.

The hotel is located in a central area of Skopje and it is easy to walk to shops and restaurants. The hotel staff is friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The front desk was able to recommend a nearby spa.

Right in the center - the bigest advantage of this hotel. My room was clean, big enough, personnel was ok. Wi-fi internet is available in the rooms and in the loby, but sometimes is overload and you can't connect your laptop - at the same time your iPhone is connected. Breakfast is quite good.
