Because all rooms in Star (Old) Dojran were taken in August 2012, we got the phonenumber of an apartment complex in Nov (New) Dojran at the Dojran Tourist Information Center. The owner was not very friendly over the phone, which should have been a warning...
The apartment complex itself looks very nice from the outside, it had a pool and its own restaurant.
New Dojran is about 4 km from Old Dojran and you should really try to get a room in Old Dojran because there is nothing to do in New Dojran. We did not find any (open) restaurant except for the one of the apartment complex.
The first room we were shown was very small and had a very basic kitchen. Since the toilet seat was broken and the toilet had not been cleaned judged by the pieces of *** that were still stuck to the bowl, we asked to see another apartment.
This other apartment was actually a very small room, without a kitchen. The room contained a bed and just enough space to walk around the bed. There was basically no space to put our bags somewhere! We took this room anyway because there were no other rooms available.
When we wanted to refresh ourselves, the shower hose turned out to be broken and the tap was leaking so much that no water was coming out of it. We reported this and it took about 90 minutes before everything was fixed and we could take a shower.
The room had air conditioning, which was really necessary because the room was directly under the roof and got very hot. As soon as the air conditioning was turned off, e.g. during the night, the room became hot again very quickly.
The only relatively good thing about Dan-Dar apartments was the restaurant, where we ate during the two days that we stayed there. Actually this was because we did not find other restaurants in Nov Dojran and I did not want to "drink and drive" the dark road from Old to New Dojran after dinner (one has to have some Rakija and Skopsko beer during dinner :-) The food was just the ordinary grilled meat (skara) with fries, but no complaints there.
Summarized: Overpriced at 1200 denars (20 euros) per night for two persons.
