“Almost certainly the best rooms in Ohrid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2011

Forget abut the tiny standard rooms (E50) - they look to the side (another building) and dont have the panoramic lake views or big balcony of the 4 suites (E60).

The suites are spacious and very luxurious - esp the beds and the bedding - but they dont have any king-size mattresses so what you get is 2 single beds pushed together and there is a big gap which one of you is going to slip down - not ideal for lovers, although one could always try the chaise lounge..! Well, we did..!!!

Big flat-screen TV and balcony with fabulous view of lake and old town, about 1 km walk.
Compared to the bedroom/lounge the bathroom was very basic - almost as if from another cheaper hotel. Breakfast not up to the room standard - first day supposedly "a la carte" except there was no "carte" so options were limited by not knowing what was available - next day a buffet - also limited, nothing special.

We ate in the top floor restaurant one night - food was good and quite reasonably priced but the better wines were very over-priced, typical of the former Yugoslav countries.

A disconcerting thing we couldn't avoid noticing was that the plate-glass windows or their frames would frequently make a sharp cracking noise like a rifle shot as they expanded and contracted. The sound was loud enough to awaken. We noticed the same problem in the breakfast room although didnt seem so loud there.

Our group of 25 stayed here for 5 days in September. Lake Ohrid is a lovely large lake surrounded by a board walk. We were right across from the lake. There ar 3floors. The restaurant is on the 4th floor with beautiful views. We ate most all our dinners ther. While the food was not outstanding it was fine. Our room one of 2 suites on the 3rd floor was wonderful. The living room had a balcony large balcony as did our bedroom. There were 2 bathrooms. All the furnishings were lovely. My only quibble would be that there wereno bedside lamps in the bedroom.

Stayed September 2010

I spent only a night in this hotel within the lovely location of Ohrid.
The room was clean and new, really confortable. Flat TV, minibar, A/C.
The view from the hotel restaurant was very beautiful, don't forget your camera!
Breakfast in general was good, only the juice's quality a bit poor.
But concerning the restaurant, never ever order "Shrimps in mushrooms sauce".. you will get Surimi with shrimp's shape instead, unacceptable. And it's a pity, because in average, the quality of the hotel was good..
