    Wonderful surprise

    Skopje is not a touristy city and thus the general layout and infrastructure is somewhat confusing, so our first impression of the hotel entrance was a bit scary. However, everything after that was great. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, the breakfast was great with one of the best views from anywhere in the city. The location was perfect, although the Macedonia Square is the heart of the city, the activity and best traditional food restaurants are right by the ARKA Hotel. Strongly recommended!

    Fabulous Stay

    My stay at Hotel Arka was wonderful! The staff were simply amazing! They were all very attentive, friendly and nice! I had been corresponding with Goran and other staff members prior to arrival to try to stay on top of restrictions due to Covid and they all had been very quick to respond with answers to my question and more! Ratko was the evening receptionist who we spoke with most due to the timing of our comings and goings and he was super helpful in coordinating our Covid Test forgetting back to the states and printed all the documents for us. Jacov was the our bar guy in the evening for our take away drinks and he was such a pleasure to chat with about Macedonia and life in general. We had such a wonderful stay at Hotel Arka! An experience I will for sure remember for a very long time!

    The hotel is in a great location in the centre of the old town. Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar has great unobstructed views over the old town, fortress and the city centre

    Recommended hotel in the middle of the Old Bazaar

    Nice hotel with a very good breakfast. Right in the middle of the Old Bazaar area. Illumination in the room and in the corridors could have been better. The same applies for wifi signal. But overall, the stay was nice, comfortable with good value for money. Very friendly staff. Do not miss the rooftop bar... amazing views of the city both during the day and at night!

    The hotel is in a good location and stuff is welcoming. The room needs to he renovate especially the shower which is not very comfortable and water draining is very slow. Also it need tp be cleaner especially the windows from the outside since we got a room with city view as was promised but couldn't see it clearly. Also, in the hotel published pictures you can see a pool but when we asked about it, we were told thay it is for decoration only and a 5 star hotel shohld have one.

    Nice overall

    This is a nice and modern hotel in the old town. The room was clean and spacious. However, it was a bit difficult taking a shower without a showerhead holder above. Someone also had obviously been smoking in the room when it's supposed to be non-smoking, but that shouldn't be a surprise as they are more relaxed about smoking here. These are small things though. Will recommend to visitors to Skopje.
