“A bit disappointed”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Stayed for 3 days as I was attending a conference in the hotel. It is not a five star hotel (which they gave themselves obviously).There are no special facilities in the hotel, my room had no safe and the door to the balcony was not secure. On the plus side, my room was clean and quiet, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was o.k. too. However, the shower was sub-standard and did not drain properly. I had a room with a lake-view which was absolutely amazing.
Overall, price was reasonable and I was happy enough with what I got for my money

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.

We booked a superior lakeview suite and on arrival were taken in an elevator DOWN and then walked for ages to a very tired looking suite with a great view of trees but no lake. Naturally we complained and were immediately taken to another suite on the second floor of only three where the suite had a fantastic view of the beautiful lake and the surrounding snow capped peaks. Since the hotel had very few guests we can't fathom why they tried to fob off such a crappy suite. Although the new one was quite large it was very badly in need of renovation and updating having been built I'd say in the 60's. When we arrived the floor in the bathroom was soaking wet, there was a bulb out in the bathroom so it was very dim and there were only two hangers in the closet. All this was remedied quickly once we asked but we should never have had to ask. The shower stall is so tiny that you have to switch off the water to lather up and the taps themselves are coming off the wall. Worst of al howver is that the bar and patio are right below us so even at 1AM it was very noisy. The breakfast buffet was mediocre and internet access is only available in the lobby but not in the rooms. The grounds are very nice with good walking paths and very scenic. Still our guide told us that this was the best hotel in town which is not saying much.

Room Tip: Whatever you do insist on a lakeview room not the parking lot and make sure it's on the second o...

I stayed at this hotel for a conference. It's a very good 3-star hotel.
Room is spacious and clean. The service is very friendly.
It's about 2km from the village but it's a nice walk along the lake shore.

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights for a conference and the view from the room was so peaceful that I couldn't tell whether the sliding glass door was open or closed. If you want a great view with pretty good food, great service (but I suspect it was because we were with a large conference group), and can deal with average furnishings, this is a good choice. My clothing was ironed quickly and while I thought it was a free service, I was charged at check-out. The shower in our room was a handheld showerhead and our holder was broken, so it was hard to shower with one hand! Also, the doors did not close and the bathroom was nearly flooded every day. It is NOT near the town, but a cab ride is worth it. The town of Ohrid is just fabulous and quaint. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but if you want to be nearer the activities of Ohrid, stay in the town. No "business center," but a computer and printer near the lobby. Wired internet in our room (free) was really fast! No pool, but access to the lake.

The room was on the 3rd floor over looking the lake. BEAUTIFUL view!!! The sun is fully up at 4:30 A.M., because it woke me up every morning. The corner room had only a sheer curtain on the east side and my bed was directly facing east. There was a sheer curtain with 3 panels of solid fabric that could be adjusted to cover the sliding glass door opening onto the balcony.

The carpet was stained and dirty burnt orange. The furnishings looked like they were from a 1970s LaQuinta. The doorknob came off in your hand and the door had no security latch or chain. Sometimes, the water would just disappear...

The ballroom windows could not be completely covered for showing a video.

There were not any of the amenities one would expect with a ***** hotel. The food was good, especially the salads and desserts. There was an extra charge for an extra juice or cola.

Taxis to and from town cost about 150 MKD. One tried to charge us 200 MKD but had no meter and changed his charge when we protested.

We stayed at the Inex Gorica for five nights in July 2008.
The hotel seems to be a former yugoslavian-communist-party-hotel, that was renovated. As the renovation was not done too perfect, you still can see that e. g. at the doors, which were not changed.
The hotel is located about 2 km outside the oldtown, but a one-way trip by taxi costs only 130 - 180 Denar (about 2 - 3 EUR)
Don´t let the five stars (which they gave themselves obviously) guide you - there are no special facilities in the hotel, our room had no safe and the nearby beach ist not a private hotel beach, but a public one. E.g. we found nobody to give us beach towels and we had to pay for our sunbeds.
If you don´t mind that, Gorica is a fine hotel. Our room was clean and quiet, the staff was very friendly an helpful and the breakfast was o.k. too.
If you book this hotel, try to make sure that you get a room with lake-view, because that view (just watch the pic I added) is definitely unbeatable.
By the way, we contacted the hotel directly and the offered us a price far below the prices mentioned on the booking-pages.
Alltogether we had a fine stay at the Gorica and can recommend it to anyone, that is not counting stars but looking for an appropriate hotel.
