Great location..Loved the decoration and the size of the rooms..Very comfortable beds..Very helpful and polite staff..Excellent value for the money. I definitely recommend it.
Awful hotel! No reception & if there were someone, no one spoke English!. The toilet was stinky & the room was super small and dirty! The bath in the middle of the room was not handy at all! The hole room was smelly! No elevator! No one cleaned the room during our 3 day stay there!!! The breakfast was served 1 block beneath the hotel & they serve hideous coffee there. Never going back there, wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!
fantastic location and v charming Well done room and nice staff. convenient parking given pedestrian area
no real shower
Very good location right in the center of the Old town and very close to the lake. We had the room at the top with a great lake view. The room was very nice and clean. Very good breakfast provided by the hosts in a nearby restaurant.
The location is very good and close to all the main interesting spots in the lower part of the old town. The hotel is an architectonic jewel inside and outside but lacks a good view to the city or the lake. The room we had (a standard double) was spacious enough and reasonably comfortable for us but not for a 4 stars hotel.
There is no reception so it is quite difficult to check in or to stay in touch with the owner for any kind of problems which may occur. In one morning we hadn't any kind of water running for a few good hours and we hardly manage to find that there was a general issue in the old city.
Position great as well as a very nice historical building. Very good breakfast (served in a bar nearby with extremely friendly staff)
The Deluxe room on top roof floor is very small and being under the roof if you are to tall creates serious problems…. Being under the roof furthermore you need to have air condition on all the time. We forgot to do it one day and when we returned shampoo was boiling in the toilet!!! The staff at the reception is absent, no one is there when you need them. There is a young girl speaking english that is nice and helpful but you never know when she is there. The landlady do not speak a word of english and is never there and is not particularly nice. Doesn't seem to care much about her guests. In order to speak with someone you have to call them on the mobile and then someone come (if you are lucky).
location nice and helpful staff teasty breakfast in a cozy restaurant
size of a room, bad smell from toilet, leaking toilet seat/floor
Central place close to the lake and town center, rich breakfast, clean and newly decorated rooms.
If you can see hotel personnel during your stay you're lucky. A stinky smell comes out of the bathroom, but it seems this a general problem arising from the town sewer system. Noisy neighbors start talking in the terrace since 7 am till 12 pm. Very small room.
Beautiful old house. Central location. Excellent breakfast.
More a room for rent than a hotel. No reception or staff. Central location means some street noise. Sewer smell in bathroom but I noticed this in other places as well-probably out of their control.
The location was perfect, the staff was very nice.
The bed was not so comfortable.
character of the place and friendliness. Also liked the breakfast organized at a nearby restaurant.
They need to warn people about access to rooms and if you choose one of the delux doubles on the top floor you cannot be tall so might be worth a warning. Need to fix wall plugs.
I really like the location, which is very close to the restaurant streets and town center.
The staff was very rude, not service-oriented. Secondly, there is no free parking, even though it is listed among the options upon request. Thirdly and most importantly, in the room number 8 where I stayed, there is a bath tub literally placed in the middle of room!!! No privacy nothing!! Cleaniness service was horrible as well. How come they got 8.1 point from the customers I do not understand. If you want to stay at this hotel, do not stay the rooms located at the roof if you wanna have a proper bath tub and shower.
It was a nice place to stay.
The luxury room was good but a bit odd because it had so low to the ceiling.
That it was in the center off old town.
Very small rooms and listen what happens beside you.
Great hotel, good value for the money. Good location, lake is 2 minutes away. Really good breakfast, clean rooms, comfy beds.
Little bit noisy.
Good location, excelent staff, free parking, nice restaurant for the brekfast
Difficults steps to the 2th flor rooms
I likes the placement of the villa. The breakfast was decent and the rum was quaint.
The bathtub wasn't a bathtub because you can't use it that way. The room was to small and it wasn't worth the five story staircase.
Balcony location and the view
If you are a non smoker and request a non smoking room, you may still get a smoking room. The bathroom is so small you can not even move a foot or turn. It is very difficult to locate the owner, at times.
We stayed in this house just for 3 nights, but it was really very pleasant stay. It was a great choice. The house is located in the old part of the town, area with many cafés, restaurants and shops....Jovan house was recently renovated, but in professional and proper way, by keeping authenticity of the house. Rooms are small, but stylish and lovely. The owners of the house (Jovan and his wife), were very friendly and helpful hosts. We definitely recommend to stay in this house.
The place has a great location.Just on the way to the Kaneo St Jovan Church, St. Sofia and The Car Samoil Fortress. The rooms have the charm and coziness. Breakfast is served in not served in the hotel but in the charming restaurants near the lake. It is tasty and diverse. When we were leaving the land lady gave us a gift- the picture of the hotel drawn on the hand made paper.
The only thing was a really tiny bathroom.
Villa Jovan has an excellent location in the old city of Ohrid next to the Robevici House that is a museum. The bed was comfortable and the room well decorated in traditional ways. I found the staff most helpful. I recommend Villa Jovan and would stay there again. Frances, Bloomington, IN
Fantastic location great view from the room
Good location. Nice old building. Friendly staff. No English.
Top floor room. Ceiling too low. No bright lights. Toilet seat broken. Feature bath in bedroom was without stopper so could not be used. No shower in WC. No one at reception on arrival. No parking.
Amazing place with friendly and hospitable staff. Everything is excellent!
