you could not ask for a more peaceful and beautiful location!
Macedonia is truly a hidden gem of Europe and Lake Ohrid is a truly serene spot to be.
The staff were fantastic and their level of English made our stay much more comfortable.
The level of help and willing to offer suggestions on where to go was greatly appreciated and i would highly recommend this hotel again.

Even if you dont have a lake view room u can just walk outside and step right in, and with the new pool u have a choice if u would like something a little warmer!
A truly fantastic experience in a beautiful city that is untouched in comparison to all the tourist traps that come with Europe! This really is the place to be.

This hotel has seen better days and should see better days if the owners are willing to invest. The location is suberb and if you can get a lake view even better.
Breakfast was not good - neither content nor service.
Wi fi works well in the rooms and is free.

Room Tip: You have to get a room with a lake view

Very nice view,but definitely not 4 star hotel. The first day that we have arrived there was a small group from Turkey and therefore we have nice buffet dinner, but the next day when they have gone, the hotel cut the heating,there was no hot water,for breakfast and dinner we have to choose eather eggs or meat (not from the menu).The staff have to cut the bills.
Very clean.

I spent 5 nights at the Granit on a business trip to Ohrid in the early summer, as the crowds were still not there for the peak of the season and the late afternoon swim in the lake was quite pleasant. Good cleanliness and helpful staff. Meals were not particularly varied.
Also very good to have full access to the internet (with good speed) in the room, so the balcony became a very warm "office" to work after hours, as the sun set late at the time.
The surroundings are nice and choice of restaurants also quite interesting with lake views.

Room Tip: Lake view is a plus here

This was my third time to Ohrid but it has been 30 years since I had an overnight stay there. Hotel Granit was built in socialist times, but has been renovated to 4 stars standard. It is a cosy hotel despite its size with nicely renovated rooms and common areas. View on the lake is beautiful and pay attention to get a room with a view and not the other, hill side. Hotel itself is some 6 km away from center of Ohrid, so one should have a car or order a taxi (inexpensive). Just in front of the hotel there is a beach but I was told even during the summer water is not very warm (there are springs feeding the lake with cold fresh water). A small road leads towards St. Naum and Albanian border and runs just behind the hotel but due to the general quietness of the area you can hear cards passing by if you have hill side room, or if your room is on the corner of the building. Have no major worry, traffic is sporadic. Breakfast was included in the room rate (I paid bit less than 50 EUR for night) and includes eggs, saussages, cheese, pies.

Room Tip: Lake view somewhere in the middle of the hotel, top floor. Gives better view and should protect you...
