Staying with Pavel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 8, 2011

The Grebnos Stone-house Apartments is by no means a full service or luxurious hotel, pension or guest house, but it's charming nonetheless. It's basically the personal project of the interesting owner Pavel...an Ohrid native who spent 25 years in Holland before returning to his hometown. He rebuilt an old house, in the old historic part of town, according to the stone house tradition of Ohrid. He lives in one part of the guesthouse and leaves the other part of the house to his guests. It's interesting and nice for the stone architecture and the GREAT views from the balcony - which is large and comfortable. The place is charming and rustic, and the homey feel is quite nice for those who like that sort of thing, but will be disappointing for those who expect a full service place with luxurious appointments. I was disappointed by my bathroom which while architecturally interesting, was fairly small and had one of those - 'the shower is the whole bathroom' kind of things. There are however other rooms with much more luxurious bathrooms, just ask ahead when you're booking. There's a kitchen with a coffee machine and hot water for tea, but you won't have a full breakfast if you need that to get you going in the morning. There's free wifi, which is nice and you can while away a few hours catching up on email out on the balcony, which offers a glorious view and is quite spacious

Unique Quality: The view from the terrace is beautiful and perhaps the best thing about this accommodation. It's a large terrace that overlooks the lake and town below.

Also, the owner Pavel Pop Stefanija is a unique and friendly fellow who likes chatting with and hanging out with his guests (only those who want to). We spent a fun pre-going out hour chatting and drinking rakija with Pavel. Good medicine for my laryngitis despite what doctors would say.

Finding the place was very challenging as no one would tell us where it was, and even the taxi driver seemed clueless even though it was in the end about 200 meters away. Metodi Patce is one of the main stone streets that runs up from the center of town. Grebnos is poorly marked and is at the top of the hill on the left as you come up from the street pictured. (It's not the establishment in my street photo.) If you can't find the place, Grebnos says to call them on their mobile phone number :+ 389 70 331 706 and they'll come to get you for free from any location in Ohrid or from the Ohrid airport. Cool. We tried giving the number to the taxi driver, but he wouldn't call. And he had no clue :)
