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, …
... to one of the more popular cathedral complexes, Plaosnik, which consisted of ruins of a church from the 4th century and some impressive mosaics from the 9th century. There was also a beautiful monastery overlooking the lake. On the walk to Plaosnik, we made a little dog friend who followed us for the rest of the day!
We also met an old man who painstakingly explained to us with use of ample hand gestures ...
... It was readily apparent an enormous amount of money had been spent on the renovations which are still ongoing, a tractor on site a good clue.
The core attraction was the church. A monk showed us around, Daniela translating. It contained an 18th c icon of the Virgin Mary with supposed healing powers. Of greater interest to me was the splendid iconostasis, built by two brothers in the 1830's. Its wooden columns are hollowed out. The Mouse for some ...
... right bus and we got on together. We talked about Armenia and the US and how her family calls Los Angeles "Los Armenia" because so many Armenians live there. When we arrived at the bus station she helped me find the correct bus and found out the price for me. She was very helpful and I thanked her and wished each other well. The bus had only a couple people waiting so I thought we would have to wait until it filled up like usual. But after only maybe 30 minutes of waiting and ...
