Skopje Getaway at New Star Skopje

We have never been to the beautiful Macedonia, so we wanted to take a city break and  explore the capital city of Skopje.

We decided stay and the beautiful New star hotel, mostly because we fell in love with the pictures of the interior and the size of the rooms. The outside of the hotel also looks gorgeous:


The Hotel is located a few kilometers away from the center. But that is not a problem, since you can get there by Taxi, which costs about 4€ to get to the centre. The receptionists were really nice and called as a cab every time we decided to go to the city.

We arrived on Friday night and were welcomed by a lovely receptionist who took us to our suite.

The lobby was gorgeous, but we especially loved the ‘living room’ in our floor. It had a fireplace, cosy sofas and lots of books to choose from. Its a perfect way to spend an evening after a whole day of wandering around Skopje.


But the best part was our room. We were amazed by the size of the suite, which was as big as an apartment! It was one of the biggest rooms i have ever seen and the interior decor is lovely as well.

The room consists of a huge living space with tv and sofas, and a spacious bathroom with two showers. The bed was really big and extremely comfortable, so we had a good night sleep.  

There are also all the other amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel like the New Star – free wifi in the rooms, air conditioning, room service, laundry and ironing service, rich bufet breakfast and many others.  

There is also a restaurant in a hotel with a wide selection of various meat products, seafod, vegeterian dishes and salads. We ordered room service on two occasions and i have to say that we were really impressed by the food. They even made us something to eat after the official room service hours.



The hotel also has a big fitness area, with all kinds of equipment – It is definetelly one of the biggest gyms we have ever seen in a hotel.

There are also two pool tables in the gym. If you are more outdoorsy type, you can also use a tennis and basketball courts outside and a huge swimming pool, that is open in the summer.


The hotel is specialized in hosting weddings and has two wedding halls, that can sit up to a few hundred people. We were so happy to actually witness one, since the weddings in Macedonia are huge. They also host many events by the pool in the summer. All of the staff were really nice and professional and very helpful.

We really enjoyed or stay at the hotel and would recomend it if you are visiting Skopje. You can check out their website here:

  1. I love the designs of the hotel, both interior and exterior. The lobby is quite interesting, I never came across that kind of lobby so far, based on my experience. The room is nice too, perfect for two. Thank you for the recommendation. Will surely consider this hotel when I visit Skopje later ☺
