“Perfect vacation”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Friendly staff, excelent wi-fi signal, plentiful and varied breakfast, peace location in small street near the center, with lots of bars and shops nearby, clean room.... No doubt my next choice when I came to Skopje. Darko and his brother was more then ordinary friendly hosts. Very good value for money, great bed, nice little balcony

Room Tip: There are no swimming pool and fitness centre

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!

Room Tip: Paying for an upgraded comfort room does not guarantee a balcony

The hotel is decorated in an old-fashioned way which I really liked, it gave it a personal touch, so to say. The owners are really friendly and speak English very well. They gave us advise about where to eat and where to go which was really usefull. When we arrived we could choose between two rooms since the hotel wasn't fully booked. Breakfast was until 10 o'clock, but it turned out to be no problem at all to have it a little later. There's also a little garden, very enjoyable. Wifi worked perfect. The shower was a little annoying though, after using it the whole bathroom floor was wet. But that's the only thing, the bed was good and there was no noise of other guests.

The positivea - big rooms, well furnoshed and fairly clean. Also good service but that depends who is working when you arrive.
The negatives - the junk (a broken bed and ripped out door blocked the stairs up to room number 11 - then little things like an eiffel tower in the entrance way)
The part renovation - adding modern things such as air con which have not been fitted properly with wires blocking my way out to the balcony. Also i had to choice between air con and a fridge as there was only 1 plug socket avaliable
Overall, the owners seem to have given up on this, what could be such a nice place with such a small amount spent on it

This is a small hotel runs by two brothers since many years ago - over 25. The owners are very kind and helpful, for example Darko has explained us everything during our stay about Skopje and Macedonia and the things we can do. The hotel it's a little bit difficult to reach if you're travelling by car (even if you're using a GPS), but no problems, just ask the inhabitans and they we'll guide you. If you're not by car, the taxi prices are not expensive. The hotel it's in a quiet area (even if close at hand are many public works) and you can park your car for free on the street, in front of the hotel. The room wasn't for sure the same as a Hilton, but it's OK, breakfast was decent, very good WIFI signal. The hotel has not elevator, the cleanliness and the furniture of the room and bathroom should be improved.
In a word, if you want to save your money, go definitely at Kapistec.

Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. No fruits or veggies for the breakfast :-). Free wifi and parking place can be found nearby. OK for an overnight stay, a short taxi drive from the centre.
