Sonja was more than a hostess. She gave me a full of advice for the trip in both Ohrid and around Ohrid. When I asked her something she didn't know, she even called to the bus company or else. The flat's location is amazing. Every attraction is in the circle of walking distance. You don't need a taxi or bus to look around the town from her house, but taxi will be helpful to get to her flat from the bus station. It is really quiet at night, so you will have a good night even if you are the type of a short sleeper. I'll definitely stay in her flat, when I visit Ohrid again.
I would recommend this place to everybody traveling to Ohrid. It is perfectly located inside old town, in a quiet neighborhood but only 3 min. to the main blvd. Sonja is a great host and also the rooms were super clean.
Sonja was very welcoming And helpful. The place is as nice as described. Great host, well located. I recommend it.
sonja's place is cosy, very clean, directly in the old town, easy to find and with an breath taking view on the lake. sonja and her husband have been very friendly with me - aimed to make my stay as comfortable as possible (sonja even washed some of my clothes, thank you one more time for this, sonja). the value-for-money-relation is nearly unbeatable from my point of view: i can highly recommend this place.
I have spent a nice time in ohrid and Sonja's room! It's perfect because of its location: only 5 mins to lake and center and hygiene: your private bathroom. Her place is close to the famous hostel in ohrid. I always went there and find other travelers to hang around!
Moreover, Sonja is so nice to show me around on the first day and assist me to get a SIM card.
If I come to ohrid again, I will definitely choose to stay here again!
This is the perfect place to stay if you go to Ohrid : clean, large room with terrace with view on the lake, ideal location in the town centre, close to everywhere you want to go in Ohrid.
Sonja is very friendly and always helpful with precious information and advice.
We had a great stay there, and we highly recommend the place!
thank you Mathieu
Sonja was such a good host! She explained us everything we wanted to know. She borrowed us a programme for the Ohrid summer festival and she even let us borrow her washing machine. The room in Sonjas apartment is very spacious, has a fridge and a most charming balcony with a view over the lake. The location of the apartment is perfect being in close salling distance to the City center and still situated in a quiet and cosy street in the old part og the city. I can very much recommend staying in Sonjas place when in Ohrid!
thank you Sidsel
Sonja and Dimitri are wonderful people. Very open and welcoming. Sonja picked me up at the port on my first day and brought me to the taxi station when I left. She even chipped in with some money when I didn't have enough cash left for the taxi fare. Dimitri gave me a tour of the town and its churches, which was very interesting because he has an amazing knowledge of the area and the orthodox churches. I felt perfectly taken care of.
Their house is new (the front is not plastered yet) and the rooms are very neat and clean. While the room is furnished only with the basics, it does have everything you need (bed, wardrobe, two chairs, a mini fridge). The bathroom is very nice, modern and new. Nice hot water with high water pressure :-)
The neighbourhood they live in is perfect to explore Ohrid. Right in the middle of the old town, you can reach all the sights within 2-5 minutes. And even just wandering around is fun, because everything is beautiful around there.
Sonya was a great host with a great appartment! Beautiful view ocer the lake, and the spacey room provided for a very nice place to stay.
Thanks for the review Timo :-)
Sonya and Dimitri's is the best of all worlds for the traveler. They have lovely, spacious rooms in the scenic winding streets of old town with a great view of the lake and mountains. They are a wealth of information about the town and its history. They were also tireless in helping with logistics and attractions of Ohrid.
Sonya and Dimitri (who speak a number of languages; Sonya is expert in English) extend all the hospitality of which Macedonia is so well known.
Plan to spend an extra day. Ohrid is charming.
thank you for the lovely review Maria
