Good value for money with large rooms, reasonable fittings and free wi-fi. The owners speak good English and they are friendly and helpful. The receptionist greetings us was less welcoming and her reluctance to leave her computer game was irritating but things improved from there.
The hotel is being renovated so I assume some rooms are better than others. The ensuite was large and shower powerful but it leaked over the bathroom floor. Air conditioning worked fine and there was a kettle and fridge, but no tea or coffee provided in the rooms.Beds were comfortable. The collection of pieces in all the public rooms and the dated decoration gives the hotel character. There is no lift and the stairs are quite narrow.
Breakfast was served until 10am at least and service was attentive. There was choice of cereals, bread, spreads, preserves, meat and cheese but some veggies and fruit would have been welcomed.
Hotel Kapistec is difficult to find as there is so little road signage of roads in the area but directions from google proved to be accurate. There was road construction underway in the area so access may well improve. It took about 30 minutes to drive to the airport. There is parking in the square next to the hotel and a small shop across the square. It took us about 20 minutes to walk to central Skopje and a taxi costs less than £3.
Excellent value for money. My one moan is that not every room has a balcony as advertised on the website through which our booking was made so I missed out on sipping my beer looking down on the square!
