Hotel Kristal Palace, Prilep
Good, but expensive hotel, with 22 rooms.
A double room costs about 40-50 euros, including breakfast.
Directions: Near the railway station
Just enjoyed (or should that be "endured"?) four days in Prilep and boy, was I glad to get back to Skopje...! If you are looking for a cheap, modernish base to explore this region of Macedonia, then this hotel will fit the bill. If like me you are there on business, then I would recommend that you look elsewhere, possibly a little further south in Bitola.
In fairness the staff were 100% helpful and room service was prompt and of a decent enough standard that you won't starve.
A couple of warnings - If you have heavy cases or bags then start working out as the only access is a steep stairway up into reception. Also, the Kristal Palas seems to be the wedding reception venue of choice and on each night I was there a party was underway in the restaurant - unfortunately I was down on the first floor and the restaurant is above, so I was roundly entertained by music, cheering and dancing feet.. Say what you like about the Macedonian people, but they love a good party.
There are worse hotels around, but then again there are better; it's purely a matter of choice. I've stayed in worse, much worse, but I was pleased to see the hotel disappearing in the rear-view-mirror yesterday morning.
One final piece of advice - don't leave any loose change, of any denomination, laying around your room. To you it might be pocket money, but to the cleaners it is a tip.
Unique Quality: Unique Qualities? Sorry, there aren't any.
Directions: Sat amongst housing, simply turn left out of the hotel and right at the general store 400 yards up the street and, hey presto, you will be seconds away from the centre.
