Apartments Joce
Ranked #11 of 73 Ohrid B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Our group of MTBikers went to Macedonia for one week trip. We were searching for places to stay in different cities/villages on our journey. In Ohrid we choose Joce Apartments, because of good price, safe parking for our minibus with trailer and bikes and especially for availability to accommodate 18 people. We stayed only one night, but Joce was fantastic and we loved the place very near by historic centre. We had all comfort we needed, even breakfast was arranged for us in close restaurant. Towel swans were nice surprise for all of us and we also welcomed the washing lines at our balcony. Such a relief after our long sweaty journey on bikes :). Thank you Joce for everything !

Stayed in a four bed room with some friends and it was really a good experience. Joce is awesome and very helpful. It would be good to have pots and dish soap in the room but this was easily fixed by Joce. Lake Ohrid is amazing. Great place to stay in a quiet nieghborhood a short walk from everything.

Joce's apartments are very nicely furnished and modern. We had a balcony! On arrival, Mrs Joce was waiting for us outside and made me a Coffee which was most welcome. We were shown to our room to be delighted at towels modelled into two swans on the bed! Solar powered heating lets you have a long shower safe in the knowledge that you're not increasing your carbon footprint :)

Joce and his wife are absolutely amazing hosts. We went to their flat (in the apartment building) to pay up and spent an hour with them, where we had coffee, pancakes with home-made jam and home-made brandy, which was lovely. Joce is a History professor and what he doesn't know about Macedonia probably isn't worth knowing. He phoned the bus station for us to sort out our ongoing arrangements and then at 7.30am the following morning as we waited for the bus, he pulled up in his car and got out to wish us a good journey and say goodbye again!

Good Points:
*Not too far from town, but in a nice quiet neighbourhood.
*Very nice, spacious rooms. Satellite TV with English news channels and Wifi
*Car parking
*Little touches - towels made into elephants and swans
*You'd struggle to find better hospitality anywhere
*Very cheap
*Bus stop for Skopje bus at the end of the road

Bad Points:
I'm really struggling to think of any.

We spent 3 weeks travelling round the Balkans and this was probably the best place we stayed.

Could not recommend this place more.
Joce and his wife are awesome hosts. Of 3 weeks travelling around the former Yugoslavia this was the best and lowest priced accomodation we stayed at. About 8-9 Euros a night. It is more like a Hotel than a Hostel. We were greeted by our hosts with homemade brandy made by Joce's father. Very good and very strong. There is a well in the garden from which fresh water is provided, we were given fresh homegrown tomatoes the size of oranges and invited to eat grapes from the grapevines.
Within our apartment we had our own bathroom, kitchen and balcony. The TV had about 100 channels, many of them in English. The was also wireless internet connection.
The room was very clean, and the water was heated by solar power. The towels were all folder into the shapes of birds and hearts, very impressive.
Joce and his wife were incredibly courteous, they attended to our every need. They offered advice, gave directions, recommended reataurants etc.
Joce is a History teacher and can so be engaged in philosiphical, post brandy banter.
Loated 10 minutes from the centre of Ohrid, this place is great.
Hopefully we will go back there one day.
