One Monday evening in May 2011 we arrived at around 18:30 h in Prizren after a long bus trip from Ohrid in Macedonia. We hadn't booked any accommodation in advance, but as we had read the "In Your Pocket – Prizren" guide we cleary knew where to go.
The guesthouse Oltas Pension was our first choice and we easily found it after a 20 minutes walk from the bus station. They have 7 rooms; 4 of which are doubles. Free WiFi Internet is available in the building.
The young receptionist spoke good English and offered us a double room with breakfast for 35 Euro per night. Our room was quite small but included a second room with a fridge and some possibilities to hang our clothes. The bathroom was equipped with a leaking water heater. Everything was a bit dated, but the place had its own charm, so that we even extended our stay from 2 to 3 nights.
Breakfast consisted of an egg, a banana and a selection of bread with cheese, and jam. We once got in contact with the lady of the guesthouse who speaks fluent German.
The Guesthouse Oltas Pension is located on a quiet residential street in the very heart of Prizren's city centre. It can be found just between the main catholic church Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour and the main square Sheshi Shadervan. The Hotel Centrum is situated in the same street.
stayed there for 2 nights, the hotel does have everything you may need, even more - a pool, conference room, etc. I've only tried the restaurant, that was absolutely ok and it was visited by locals as well. it has a free Wi-Fi Internet connection.
the cons are that it is outside the town and it is on the main way so it is noisy. despite the latter I slept well after sightseeing the whole day;
While walking in the downtown I've noticed other accommodation possibilities in Prizren - a hotel Centrum and a guesthouse nearby that definitely looked good and do have a central location
so, finding an accommodation in Prizren is not a problem at all;
next to the hotel there is a gas station, also named OK
Prizren has a new hotel in town called the Hotel Centrum. Tucked away down a side street a few minutes walk from the main square. €40 anight including breakfast although they do charge for a second cup of coffee, bit of a cheek i thought. However, couldnt really complain. Excellent rooms with bathroom and satalite t.v. Prizren like the rest of Kosovo is fantastic and two years on has improved remarkabably. But why is there so much rubbish everywhere?
The cheapest place to stay in Prizren is this small family-run pension right in the heart of the old city, next door to the Albanian catholic cathedral. Large rooms with en-suite bathrooms (including very hot water!) television, fridge and back-up lights for when the power goes off. 25 Euros for a single, 35 Euros for a double. The price includes breakfast and use of internet en suite. The owner speaks good Turkish, his daughter excellent English.
The photo: well, there must have been a reason why I took this photo, but now I really can't remember. I've got a feeling it may be the pension, or next to the pension, or near to the pension
Hotel Theranda (or was it the Prizreni? Its the one in the town centre, by the river) was apparently the best hotel in town. Which does not say much for the other local hostelries. Cold rooms with intermittent electricity and 70s dýcor ý but surprisingly good coffee and breakfast downstairs and an internet cafý in the lobby overseen by the chain-smoking leather-jacketed characters at reception.
