“Terrible, terrible, terrible”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

We've stayed there one night, on the way back to Europe, and it was a terrible mistake.
My husband didn’t check any reviews, and just chose the hotel, thinking that it can’t be that bad for one night. It look normal on the website.
But it is that bad even for one night: there is no soap, or shower gel, the bathroom is a disaster, small, small TV, uncomfortable bed. Everything looks very poor and dirty. This hotel might be 1 star hotel, but certainly not 3. The staff is unfriendly, breakfast uneatable.
It was very difficult to find it, and it took us ages to finally get there, and then we were too tired to go look for something else.

Hotel check in and personnel were fine, plus room very clean, comfortable and quiet(padded doors help).

Breafkast bit average, sliced bread not quite fresh, boiled egg, butter honey/jam, and had to pay for coffee....

No hot water in roombut room cleaned daily (plus clothes folded etc.)...... and wifi signal up and down but very good downstairs.

Overall for price (cheap booked online) ok.

I stayed here on a group tour so had no say in the accommodation. I was a bit hesitant after reading other reviews but I am happy to say that my experience was all positive. Decent enough location, ten minute walk to centre of town, VERY helpful and friendly staff, clean bathroom and bedding.

I go there to stay for 3 days on New Years Eve. I had to leave after the first night. Unfortunatly I arrived late at night so I could not leave at the same day. The room was dirty, the beds had hair from other visitors, the toilet was not clean, We found nails on a bed, not event toilet paper inside the room. The receptionist holded our passports and demanded to pay for the 3 days. I had to go to the police. STAY AWAY.

I found the room to be warm and clean. There was however some pee on the toilet seat, but that was cleaned within 1 minute of me informing reception.
The location is perfect.
I was worried after reading the other reviews (read them after a friend booked me in), but actually they must have just been a bunch of moaners!
Internet worked perfectly, though was painfully slow for downloading. Fine for browsing.

Reviewed 10 April 2010

We booked Hotel Ani from a recommendation in the Lonely Planet - we only needed one night in Skopje and after a long bus trip from Pristina we couldn't be doing with the hassle of finding private accomodation.

We really wish we hadn't. The place is terribly located down a back alley a long walk from the Plostad Makedonia (main square), despite being described as "central". It has a nasty, dingy and badly lit reception area.

We paid €65 for a triple room, which isn't too bad for Skopje which has a shortage of good budget accomodation, but a total rip off by the standards of the region. But the room itself however was grubby, tiny, with itchy horrible sheets and menacingly psycadelic 70s wallpaper. The bathroom was dirty and small with a shower head that you had to hold between your legs and the boiler was turned off so we couldn't shower on arrival.

Not too much of a problem for just one night, except the bar below our room was having a thumping loud party. Asking to move (the hotel was clearly empty) to a room on the back, the porter simply refused, saying we'd agreed to the room when we were shown it.

Later on that night, after the party had died down, we were kept awake by endless noise from within the hotel - people arguing, going up and down stairs, having sex. Later on during our trip we found out from Macedonians the place doubles as a brothel.

Avoid!
