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.

After we drove along the waterfront to where the springs from the mountain meet the lake. On the way we stopped for a quick bite to eat right by the water. Lake Ohrid is crystal clear, with a rock beach leading into it. I even took my shoes off and stepped in the shallow waters because it was ...
- Finally got so see some of the 750,000 bunkers
- During the nearly forty-year leadership of Communist ruler Enver Hoxha of thePeople's Socialist Republic of Albania, over 700,000 bunkers were built in the country – one for every four inhabitants. The bunkers (Albanian: bunkerėt) are still a ubiquitous sight in ...
... to them play and after saw a small girl picking flowers and sprinkling them in her hair. She was having a great time entertaining herself doing that and I took some pictures and showed them to her. I walked over to the start of the boardwalk and started walking. It was the longest boardwalks I have seen on this trip. I think it went for over 7kms or so. There is constant activity everywhere you look. It was also the weekend and the beaches were packed with people. However, ...
