Villa Germanoff
Ranked #4 of 37 Hotels in Ohrid
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Villa Germanoff is a private house with ensuite accommodation, in the old quarter. Room 201 has a small balcony and amazing view of the lake. It is very clean and warm and spacious. The location is very quiet and a good nights sleep was most welcome. The owner Zoran is an intelligent, interesting and helpful host. He recommended restaurants and we took a guided tour of Ohrid with him and another guest. He is very knowledgeable and proud to be from Ohrid and Macedonia. We can highly recommend the accommodation and there are plenty of cafes close by for breakfast. Thank you Zoran.

What a delightful place to stay! You couldn’t ask for a more relaxing stay in the spacious and beautifully appointed piano room at Villa Germanoff. The views from the balcony are gorgeous at any time of the day, and even a thunderstorm rolling in felt like a bonus watched from this terrific space. It is in a tranquil setting, and is perfectly located for exploring this fascinating town, as well as nearby cafes. The setting and wonderful quality of the room are matched by superb support from the owner and staff, both before arrival and during the stay. Very highly recommended.

I got the smallest room in the place but it was very comfortable and beautifully decorated and a lovely large bathroom.The setting in the old Turkish quarter is very atmospheric and there are lots of nice cafes and restaurants nearby.
I didn,t see much of the owner but he wasvery pleasant. I just wish he had given me more info on Ohrid and the walks

Kettle in room greatly apprecated

Room Tip: Ask for a room with lake view

We arrived by overnight bus at 6:00 am and the owner met us with his car and took us back to our room even though it wasn't cleaned. He allowed us to grab a quick nap before the maid came and he even offered to buy us breakfast next door while the room was cleaned.

The Piano room is clean, spacious and has a stunning view of the lake and slept the four of us in comfort.

We decided to take the owner up on his guide services and ended up spending two days learning from his extensive knowledge (he is a professor) of the history, culture and religion that make Orhid special.

He also took us to the top of the mountain in his car so we could hike the rest of the way up to get some great views of both lakes and then down. He even offered to come back and get us if we wanted, but we grabbed a local bus back instead.

There is no question our stay was made more special because of Zoran and the fact he did everything possible to help us and make us feel at home.

You won't go wrong with Villa Germanoff!!!!

Room Tip: The Piano room is great!

Wow Wow and more wow
My wife and I recently stayed for five nights in the piano room. As you will have already read it is quite large, has a lovely balcony and a piano. The southerly aspect (sunlight all day) and stunning lake views are what did it for me, although my wife was quite taken by the decor and large bathroom.
It was very clean and kept clean during our whole stay. With Macedonia being quite poor your $ goes a long way in Ohrid and bonus of this is that the local TV must not be able to afford to dubb the programs meaning you have the choice of about 15 english speaking channels including eurosport which is rare for english speakers in europe.
I must also make note of the free WIFI service it was fast and free, faster than the paid wifi you get in most euro hotels and in this day and age I can still not understand why every hotel does not have free wifi (typing this from paid hotspot in germany),
While we saw a few nice villa's in Orhid the hidden value @ villa Germanoff where our hosts the Tuntev family. (Zoran and his son Nicholas) who both speak excellent english. As well as his villa Dr Zoran is a local tour guide and lecturer at the Ohrid university (quite a busy man) however he still had time for us arranging transport, and providing general advice on local eateries and tours. A must do is to take one of the sightseeing tours with Zoran, his vast knowledge of Ohrid's fascinating history and passion for the city is almost intoxicating.
Villa Germanoff is right in the heart of the "old town" and within walking distance of the best eateries and the seven wonders of Ohrid (you will not need a car). A dip in the lake is only hope skip and jump away.
We very much hope to return one day and would like to personally thank Dr Zoran on this forum for making us so welcome and comfortable.

We have just returned from an eight night stay at Villa Germanoff. We had the use of the Upper Apartment which has two bedrooms and a bathroom. The balcony view from the main bedroom is stunning, and probably slightly better than from the Piano Room because it's just that bit higher. The balcony also gets the sun for most of the day, which would not be the case downstairs.

The Upper Apartment is built into the roof, so there are sloping ceilings and no full-sized shower since there is nowhere to put it. There is a shower head on the bath tap.

The apartment was thoroughly serviced every day, and everything was done to make our stay a good one. Thanks to Zoran for making it such a good time for us.

Room Tip: The Upper Apartment has two full-sized bedrooms, and a slightly better view than the Piano Room

We stayed two day at Villa Germanoff and I this was a very good decision. The piano room is big and modern, although it is more suitable for two persons, not 4 as stated on booking.com because the other two people would have to sleep on two sofas, which are not so comfortable.
The view on the balcony is great and the owner is very helpful.
