Tito's view ... - Ohrid
Hotel Inex Gorica: Tito's view ... Hotel Gorica Review
Show Prices

Hotel Gorica is set above Ohrid lake in a park-like setting shared with a villa that belonged to Tito -- and now used by the Macedonian president.

Unique Qualities: The location, the view and its relative closeness to the town. It has recently been renovated and the rooms I saw were air-conditioned and very comfortable.

The picture is of the side of the hotel that faces the lake -- the inset is the small outdoor cafe that overlooks the lake.

Address: Naum Ohridski 5-7

Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: On the road to Sveti Naum. You have two chances to turn in, which is good as the sign isn't enormous!

Room/Coba/Zimmer - Ohrid
Private accomodations: Room/Coba/Zimmer

Many people who visit Ohrid stay in rooms in private homes. You can either take your chances at the bus station or wander around looking for signs. One of our friends did the wandering for us and came up with two rooms for us that had this view:)
.
I can't recommend this home for 2 reasons. I have no idea what the address is other than "on the hill above Sv. Sophia" and the bathrooms were not up to any of our standards. Next time we'll look there as well as out the window before "buying" :)

Unique Qualities: The view: In the picture morning is on the left and late afternoon on the right.

Comparison: less expensive than average

Price: less than US$20

The view from the room ... - Ohrid
The view from the room ...

The view from our balcony at the Hotel Riviera was wonderful! The only downside was the hotel bar was on the terrace right below us:) On the other hand we could keep an eye on the students we were shepherding through Macedonia!

Unique Qualities: Well this hotel has a water pipe that was repaired by one of our students at 3am!!

Clean, Central Rooms & Apartments - Ohrid
Pasko Rooms & Apartments: Clean, Central Rooms & Apartments

We spent a night at Pasko's -- and I'd stay there again! Clean, well-run and well-located -- it was a good choice made by my friends! I don't know the price as they paid, but I assume it is at the higher end of the private room range.

Address: Ul. Jane Sandanski

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: It is just a block off the lake and a short walk to the centar in the direction AWAY fromSveti Sophia.

A picture of the Palace Hotel lobby. This was their idea of how to redecorate after the end of the socialist era I guess!
.
UPDATE: The Palace seems to be closed for much needed updating -- not sure what they've done so far as the front looks really bad.
