    « Solid, friendly and clean. »

    Solid hotel just two minutes walk from the main square. Friendly and professional people at the front desk, decent rooms, which are clean and you can make your tea / coffee. Breakfast was very basic. This Best Western is a place where you can safely stay over the night and the price was about four times less expensive then nearby Marriott.

    « Reasonable mid class hotel »

    Hotel is located centrally without traffic around. Had a room on the first floor which had good size and was well maintained. Stairs are well usable, elevator was out of order. Free TV program is quite impressive, although a number of programs was unfortunately without sound. Breakfast buffet is ok but too expensive, breakfast from menue is much cheaper and was sufficient for me when not too hungry (English breakfast for 3€). Service is friendly just you need to be a little patient. So quite a good mid class hotel.

    « good hotel helpfull staff great location »

    we stayed one night at this hotel for a tour of the city center. The hotel is located on the pedestrian road which leads to the stone bridge. Just hundred meters to the stone bridge and all the interesting sights . Pleanty of restaurants arround . The room was comfortable. The staff was very helpfull.

    « Pleasant stay - awesome central location, friendly staff, good value »

    The location was great - on a pedestrian mall just across from the new Mother Theresa visitor's center, but just a couple hundred feet from streets at either end where friends could pick me up. 5 minute walk to the heart of tourist attractions and about 15 minutes to the Old Town. The front desk staff were great - especially Ivan Milovanovic - who was not only friendly but made sure my stay was truly comfortable. The rooms are a bit dated, not huge but comfortable. Having a mini-fridge and a coffee maker made it good - especially as breakfast was not included. While there are less expensive hotels to stay among major chains where you can get hotel points and build up your loyalty club profile this was the best best and I would definitely stay there again if my travels brought me back to Skopje.

    « Great location, okay rooms »

    The location was great, just a short walk from the city square. Parking was as convenient as could be. The rooms felt a little dated, but were spacious and uncluttered. The biggest complaint is that housekeeping walked into our room at 7 AM without knocking. That was a low point for the entire trip.

    « Friendly staff, good location »

    An excellent hotel for those who want to be closer to the city center. Hotel staff is very professional and friendly. Yummy breakfast! I visited the hotel with friends and we were all pleasantly surprised by the appearance.

    « Average »

    Hotel has a great location; It is situated in the city centre and you can get almost anywhere - on foot. The rooms are clean but small and quite noisy, due to the fact that hotel is on one of the main streets in Skopje. The thing that disappointed me most were quite impolite people working in the hotel and really average food.

    « Bad service and Overpriced »

    Currently located among the rubble of surrounding building projects, this hotel is perfect for workmen in the building trade. However, even they bring their own breakfast to the restaurant as the offerings there are so poor. If you are her on business or visiting as a tourist and do not want to stay with traveling sports teams or builders, go somewhere else.

    « Great hotel.Demand of the previous review. »

    Respected , I have been in this hotel few months ago and i will have to disagree with this review because the breakfast was delightful and the staff was great. The location is perfect and the rooms are big and clean.

    « Worst Hotel Stay »

    Absolutely the worst hotel stay! A terrible experience beginning with a muddled double booking, continuing with outright lies at check-in, and culminating with an overcharge at check-out. The manager came up with a new definition for the term " breakfast included" - at this hotel it means that the breakfast charges will be added on and included in your bill. The breakfast was one for the books though (and not in a good way). 12 euros for cool aide, watery coffee-flavoured dishwater, fried leftovers from last night's dinner, and a few suspect salads. Having previously suffered from poorly washed salad, I would treat these delights as suspect. No wonder some of the guests brought their own food and drink to breakfast. The hotel should be ashamed to charge 12 euros for this, especially when you can get a freshly cooked breakfast with great coffee at nearby restaurants for 3 or 4 euro. If you do not have very low expectations or do not enjoy staying in a workman' or sportsman's hostel, avoid this place.

    « Great location, good price near the center of the action. »

    Best Western is located directly across the pedestrian street from the Mother Theresa memorial not far from the central square. Other than a taxi reservation mix-up, everything went well. A restaurant staff member actually walked me to a local street vendor when we were in search of some fruit.

    « Nothing special.. awful breakfast. »

    here for c couple of nights on a work trip. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly and the room was big and the bed was comfy.. not much else good to say. Breakfast was absolutely awful and felt like a last minute thoughtless add on. No relaxing common areas, reception was very small and uninviting. The cafe area was much under-used and should have been were breakfast was served. My first time in Skopje so i have no way of gauging if this was a good standard in this city or not.

    « Merkezde Ortadan iyi bir otel »

    In the city center. Close to main street and so many restaurants. Personnel is nicely mannered. Rooms are tidy and clean. Breakfast assortment is not much as Turkish breakfast. Location is easy to find back when we went outside.

    « Pretty good, I'd recommend staying there but not for business »

    I was on a business trip for a conference in this hotel, thus it was paid for, but generally, if I were traveling on my own, I probably wouldn't chose this place as it is too expensive, not something I could afford. The place is good and clean and there is free coffee with cream or tea, waiting on the table every morning. I loved that there is an option of a sweetener to sugar, as I cannot eat sugar due to medical reasons. I liked everything in the room and I mean everything. A small tip for people whining that there is no free wifi there (which I was affraid of myself before visiting this place and reading other peoples reviews, as I really needed internet throughout the week that I was staying there.) - the wifi works very well and IS free - the only people who had problems with wifi were those staying on the fifth floor, so my guess is the hotel either needs to fix the routers or place more of them around the place so the net gets everywhere. In addition, it WAS a slow internet of course, especially during the evening, when everyone would want to use their computers - the bandwidth simply didn't stand up to that amount of users - but I didn't expect any better from a free wifi after all. The food is great. Really. I don't know what people didn't like in their food, they had everything and it was a great variety too. Tastes differ of course and I am not a pretentious eater so maybe that had something to do with it, but I really liked the food. I just took a point away for the internet as well as for the conference rooms. Those were awful. They had no windows at all so it was kind of gloomy, no proper air conditioning, seemed like the air wasn't moving. The only thing I absolutely hated in the hotel, along with the business center - the computer is older than my grandmother and if you want to work there forget about it - the printer is black and white and there is no cartridge there whatsoever so there is no way of printing out materials either. Now I wasn't to the gym, though they say they have it so I cannot say anything about that part. I really loved the bathroom. Absolutely perfect, clean, hot water at all times. The staff was really friendly and polite. I appreciate that a lot. With the exception of a few communication mistakes, I'd say they really do their job great. Overall, it's a pretty good hotel, with a great placing - right in the center of the city, fairly easy to find everything there, you get to all of the tourist spots in 5 to 15 minutes tops, by foot mind you. I just wouldn't recommend it for conferences, the rooms were awful. It's not that they weren't clean or messy, they were fairly clean, great furnishing, good projector for presentations - they just had no windows and air was barely getting in - impossible to with in that condition.
