Locally Owned Budget Hotel in Skopje
Well we had quite a nice room with a balcony and quite large enough for the suitcases. There was free wi fi and a computer downstairs..
Not far away are some shops and a tiny post office but the PO takes a bit of finding.
Breakfast was very nice and was included in our price.
For any longer than a night I would prefer to be closer to the Square. For those more adventurous you could walk to the Square from Kapistec Hotel and I am told there is a bus...more adventurous still if you have only English.
This little hotel is budget category.
Unique Quality: You can walk through the hills of Mount Vodno...I am told. They will organize transport for you to the airport or surrounds.
Directions: Look for the local MacDonalds and you are close. Under the slopes of Mount Vodno.
The Austrian embassy is close by.
Hotel Kapistec is a cheap but good place to stay during your stay in Skopje.
For about € 20,- per person a night you have a room for two or three.
The beds are not always comfortable, but the breakfast makes it more than good.
Unique Quality: The breakfast is various and tasty. You can choose your own time to have breakfast.
The staff speaks German and some English as well.
Directions: It's located southwest of the citycentre. Take bus 57 out of the citycentre to the west and ask the driver which stop is near Hotel Kapistec.
Although describing itself as a hotel, this is really just a B&B. It is adequate and spotlessly clean, but nothing special. In fact, to be honest, it's a bit frayed round the edges.
It's about a twenty minute stroll from the centre of the city, situated in a pleasant suburb under the Vodno mountain. There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants nearby, as well as a supermarket and a MacDonalds, if that's your thing. If you don't fancy the walk, there is a regular bus service on the nearby str. Ivo Lola Ribar.
The lady who runs the place is extremely friendly and has some English, although her French is considerably better.
Breakfast is the typically European cereal, fruit juice, bread, cheese and cold meats affair, but you can eat as much as you like, which gives you a good start to the day.
In a town where hotel prices are comparatively high, it's a good budget place to stay.
Directions: Check the website - it explains it much better than I could.
