Stayed at the Royal View at the beginning of October 2010 and our stay was amazing! The reception staff were extremely helpful. I read a comment on here about the bus service and thought to put our own experience, reception is completely right! They opened the webpage for us and then went out of their way to call the bus station where it took them forever to answer their phone, and when finally we got the information, turned out the website was USELESS, no wonder the staff don’t bother with it. Anyway took a taxi for most of the locations and it was cheap and a much easier way to get around. Rooms are lovely and very clean. The food was great! Loved the french toast for breakfast.The hotel is right on the lake and it feels like you can jump out of the room balcony in the lake. Since you can definitely swim in front of the hotel we look forward to coming back in summer. But not complaining about winter since we made the most use of the spa centre. Keep up the great work! Cant wait to come back

When my husband who is Macedonian born and has been living in Australia for over 40 years, asked the receptionist in Macedonian, if she could give us any details regarding bus services, she abruptly said that she had none. I heard this and suggested the internet but that did not help because the receptionist told us that the details were incorrect. That was it. We paid and left. Luckily the people of Ohrid on the street are more obliging and knowledgeable.
I suggest House Keeping wipe themselves with the 'swan towel'!!! Ouch.....

We stayed at the Royal View Hotel in Ohrid in October 2010 for 14 nights. It is a great hotel, walking distance to town. Very central location. The view is great overlooking the lake. Nice and clean hotel and the staff are very friendly. Made you feel at home. They also have a nice restaurant on the premises. Highly recomend it. Will use this hotel again.

Best place for sunset view because hotel stand right at the lake side of Ohrid. A great view everywhere you are in the hotel (on lake side room), restaurant, on veranda.
Hotel is comfortable and rooms are in a good shape, but with out air co in summer you couldn't stay long there. We stay just for a weekend and enjoy the town because hotel is just on the left side of the center of the town. On breakfast coffee and a plenty buffet choice is one of the strongest point of Royal too.
Indeed being honest with the travelours "Royal View hotel in Ohrid is a good opportunity enjoy a good time, relax and walking beside the lake. And also the lake side area in front of the hotel is not in use for swimming....

We, a family of 5 persons, stayed here for 2 nights in appartment 113. This has 3 bedrooms with 2 doubles and 1 single bed. A seperate bathroom and 2 balconies. one of which allows you to look at the lake.
Its location is directly at the lake on the crossing of 2 streets, which can create some noise. Not too disturbing though with the doors closed.
The beds were very good, large and soft. Wireless internet in this room is not too good. It keeps dropping. I had to go to the reception to get a constant 'feed'.
The price of 120 Euros is a standard price you need to pay here at the lake, as we compared hotel Tino with this one.
Reception staff is friendly and speaks good English.
Breakfast is so so, plenty of choice but the bread is quite dry when you take a breakfast around 0930.
If you want to pay the price, for Western-European standards still cheap though, this is a recommendable place.

Nice hotel overlooking Lake Ohrid, very convenient for sightseeing. Views were fabulous. Desk staff were helpful and had good English skills, food at breakfast was plentiful and very good. Hotel has a lift for those who need it to get their luggage up to their rooms. Restaurant staff has limited English, but they have a good picture menu and the lunch we ate there was very filling and tasty.
Our friend was in the neighboring room, we could hear every cough and movement.....on the Lake side of the hotel your rooms are right over the restaurant, but the rooms facing the rear back up to a bar/restaurant. In high summer season it might be a little hard to sleep here. That said, for beauty, convenient location, and a friendly staff this is still a good choice.

We've been at the Royal View last summer and had a wonderful time. The lake view which is so beautiful, the service and staff, they were all very kind and helpful. We think Royal View is one of the best hotels in Ohrid and will certainly come back again.
