“A perfect holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

now the holidays are behind us already a couple of months, time to write a review on this friendly hotel just outside the city center of Ohrid.

As part of a package holiday with Corendon we ended up in Hotel Doncho for 8 days during last summer. On arrival, we were greeted by the manager who invited us for a welcome drink and gave some information on how things work around Ohrid and what you could do during your stay.
The room was very modern and had a good working airconditioning.
Every morning a large breakfast buffet was available for us with a wide choise of warm and cold food.

From the hotel, its about a 10 minute walk to the city center and about 15 minutes to Lake Ohrid. Some smaller grocery stores can be found around the hotel within a few minutes of walking.

The guests can make use of the (not heated) swimming pool and sunchairs. Previous reviewers complained about the shadow around the pool, but I found it very pleasant to have some shadow available during those warm summer days in Macedonia! And almost always part of the pool area had some sun, so with a bit of moving around you could stay in a sunny place almost all day!

Diner was a surprise! We booked including breakfast and diner and expected a buffet with the same food every evening. Quite the opposite: some evenings we could choose à la cart and other evenings there was a choise from 5 or 6 main courses. Food quality was excellent!

Also the staff was very friendly and helpfull and made us feel welcome to the hotel all the time.

For the first time, we concider to go back to the same place for next years holiday!

Thank you Hotel Donco for the nice stay and special thanks to Elena, our host during our holiday!

the hotel is very nice with swimming poolm staff is very helpfull, good rooms, but it is not in the center of the city, so you have to drive, in the the summer i thing it is better to stay not in the center because of the parking problem

Room Tip: when you leave the city to struga it is on the right, no good sign outside

I have just returned from a tour with Saga holidays staying here for 4 nights. ON arrival it looked odd as the outside is mostly metal, but the inside is more modern and we had a nice welcome. I shared with a friend and the bedroom was a bit small and the furniture looked like Ikea. But it was all clean and tidy. Being on the top floor we were told not to open the roof window and l did find it quite hot despite it having air con. The bath room was nice, but no where to hang any washing if you wanted to do anything, so l had to use their laundry service, which was a bit pricy. Internet was free.
On arrival we had to order our dinner and when we reached the dining room for it, they had cards printed with our room numbers and what we had odered. I found the food quite good and we had 3 choices for each course.
The hotel had a pool and if you stayed in you had the sun most of the day, but if you came back later say about 5.00, you only got the sun for about an hour in one little spot.
The pool was OK and l had a few swims to cool off, but it was not heated. Staff were all very helpful. If you wanted to go to the Lake it was about a kilometer away and easy to walk to. The only thing l wasn;t too happy with was the 'safe' use. None in your room, but you could leave them at reception, they were put in a used envelope and stapled together.

Honestly I wouldn't rate this place a four star, it was more like a 2+ ok for an over night stop. The hotel staff were all very helpful/friendly the breakfast was ok, however located on a very busy main road and can be very noisy, the pool is overlooked by a tall property which shades it from the sun and the rooms are not very modern!

we travel by motorcycle and change destination every day. we look for hotels that are convenient as a location and good and clean enough for a good night sleep. Our choices are normally average. this is a good average hotel. Need car to go to old town.

I stayed at the Hotel Donco (pronounced Doncho) with a party of 28 elderly people. We had an excellent welcome on arrival and found our rooms to be cheerful, clean and more spacious than I expected. The location on a busy road is unattractive but is an easily walkable distance to the town and the lakeside. The restaurant food was well presented and the service was very satisfactory with a good choice on the menu. The meals were all enjoyable and there was an an excellent breakfast buffet. There is a cosy little bar and it was quite pleasent to sit in the reception area and drink afternoon tea. The hotel represents good value and I would have no hesitation in staying there again although I wish its location could be moved. The lady manager is superb and clearly is the person behind the hotel's high standards although the hotel's staff are all very friendly and show no hesitation in dealing with one's needs even those of slightly demanding older people. You need have no worries about staying at the Hotel Donco.

We stayed at Hotel Donca for 1 night on an Insight tour Turkey through to Vienna.

We found the accommodation at this Hotel very clean, rooms a little small, but nothing to complain about, our only comment would be the presentation of food.

Some of the food was presented again at breakfast, in fact some of it looked the same as it had been the night before, but overall we enjoyed at short time in Orhid.

The lake was beautiful, so peaceful.
