TravelPod Member ReviewsApartments Kosta Ohrid
Best location in the center of the city, that offers cleanliness and comfort of the Villa Kosta. Well designed rooms with the most comfortable beds I have ever, ever slept in and with the best room lightning. In one word we have a luxurious comfort. All the restaurants and shopping are near, in one word you are in the hart of the city and everything is around you. The staffs were extremely nice and I do not have words for the owners..... They know how to impress you and surprise you in the same time. They put a wine in our room without even asking, which was very pleasant. We will definitely stay there again.
