TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Tino Ohrid
The hotel was gracious enough to grant the majority of our group "lake view" rooms and for that I am forever grateful. Those are the best rooms, obviously. The hotel is older, a bit musty and in need of renovation. Reception is cramped and not well lit. My room is on the back side, and a bit uncomfortable. The toilet is angled into a small area between the shower and the wall. My desk, inexplicably, has a shelf installed below the center cutout which should be exclusively for your feet, so it is impossible to sit and work without contorting yourself into an awkward sideways position. The hotel boasts a four-star marquee out front, but we much prefered our three-star hotel in Berat over the previous two nights. I can only give the Hotel Tino a tepid review.

We pack up and depart Berat, bound for our final stop in Albania - the city of Elbasan, and one of the largest in the country. A lot of its industrial capacity has fallen on hard times, and we see hulking remains of factory after factory that the Chinese had helped to develop in the 70s for steel production. The center of town is still vibrant, …
... We drove to Ohrid in the dark with no place to stay. We found a parking spot in the centre of town and we asked the parking attendant if he knew of any places that were reasonably priced to sleep, and it so happened his friend was riding his bike by that owned a hostel! What are the chances. We followed him to the hostel and were pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean it was! It was also right in the centre of Ohrid with walking distance ...
... s/b. Isa will be awol for most of the next two days as he lives in Ohrid. That will also be the case for Daniela after the morning walk as most of her family is here. Both Daniela and Isa, however, will be taking the Albanian crowd on the 9th [whatever day of the week that is].
Into the Hotel Lebed [swan], certainly on the southern edge. The room key takes some fiddling with. It was drop the bag and return for the map and other info. The BS did not ...
... they were all done getting up to the hostel and I headed up. I packed up my things and went to the correct bus station on the first try. This time I was heading to a city called Batumi which is on the Black Sea only minutes away from Turkey. I found a minibus that was almost full and I got one of the last seats. That meant that there would be little waiting time, and after just a little while we were off. We drove through scenic mountain roads and after about 5 hours made it ...
