Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Balzac Skopje
Un hôtel merveilleux
Ouah ! C'est sans doute l'un des hôtels les plus agréables où j'aie séjourné, et je suis dans le tourisme.
Très grand, moderne, belles chambres propres. Tous les détails supplémentaires, comme le peignoir, les pantoufles et le sèche-serviettes dans la salle d'eau faisaient une immense différence.
Les employés étaient très serviables et agréables, ils parlaient tous anglais.
Cet hôtel est juste au milieu de la route des grands crus de la Côte d'Or en Bourgogne, plus ou moins à mi-chemin entre Beaune et Dijon.
Si vous avez envie de louer un vélo pour faire un ou deux des circuits de vignobles de la région, ne manquez pas d'aller voir Sylvie à VTT Aventure. On a passé une merveilleuse journée de randonnée sur nos vélos modernes et en bon état.
Sylvie vous prêtera également une carte et vous conseillera des itinéraires si vous lui en demandez. L'hôtel a un dépliant sur son magasin.
Si j'y retournerais ? CERTAINEMENT. Si je retourne en Bourgogne, ce sera pour séjourner à cet hôtel et explorer cette région viticole si renommée...
Une qualité de service incroyable
Cela peut paraître étrange d'écrire un commentaire, alors que je n'ai pas séjourné à cet hôtel.
On avait réservé une suite à cet hôtel pour faire un break durant notre voyage de retour de vacances de neige en février 2007. Le réceptionniste parlait excellemment anglais et était extrêmement serviable. Mais il a fallu qu'on annule notre séjour car les enfants sont tombés malades.
L'hôtel nous a expliqué leur règlement en matière d'annulation, nous a rappelé pour nous avertir qu'ils n'avaient pas réussi à relouer la chambre, puis à nouveau pour avoir une adresse où envoyer le reçu et nous l'ont envoyé en Angleterre avec un petit mot "prompt rétablissement".
Si l'hôtel lui-même est ne serait-ce qu'à moitié aussi bien que le service de la réception, alors je compte bien y retourner.
More like a 5*
Lovely hotel, better than many 5* hotels I've stayed in, in Europe. Great service, the staff are extremely helpful and very friendly. Lovely continental breakfast where you can even make you own fresh squeezed juice! Rooms are gorgeous, modern, clean, bathrooms have power shower etc. It's also lovely to go down to the hotel bar before dinner and sit and listen to the piano that plays its own music! Whilst there is no restaurant for evening meal there is a lovely restaurant just next door. Alternatively takes about 20 mins to walk in Nuit St George where there are loads of shops and restaurants. You can also get Room service. The treatments available from the Institute within the hotel are superb and very relaxing. If you want to try wine tasting and are worried about driving, no need, there are loads of caves within walking distance, you can also walk through the vineyards to nearby a chateaux.. I would definately stay here again. I can only think that this hotel is classed as 3* as it doesn't have it's own restaurant.
Un servicio increíble
Os puede resultar rara esta crítica pero la verdad es que no me hospedé en este hotel. Reservamos una suite allí para hacer un descanso durante el viaje a casa cuando volvíamos de pasar unas vacaciones en la nieve en febrero de 2007. El recepcionista hablaba un inglés excelente, además fue de lo más servicial, sin embargo tuvimos que cancelar la reserva porque los niños estaban enfermos. El hotel nos explicó su política de cancelación, nos llamaron otra vez para avisarnos de que no habían conseguido dejar la habitación, nos llamaron para pedirnos una dirección donde enviar el recibo que después nos lo enviaron al Reino Unido junto a una nota deseando que nos mejoráramos. Si el hotel en sí es la mitad de bueno que su servicio de recepción, estoy deseando alojarme en él.
This may sound like an odd review, but I didn't actually stay at the hotel.
We booked a suite here to break the journey home from a ski holiday in February 2007. The receptionist spoke excellent English and was extremely helpful. However, we had to cancel the stay because the kids were ill. The hotel explained their cancellation policy; called us again to warn us they hadn't managed to let the room; called to get an address for the receipt; and posted that to the UK together with a 'get well' note.
If the hotel itself is even half as good as the reception service, then I'm looking forward to staying at it.
We recently stayed at this property for 2 nights and it was such a pleasant surprise! The room was huge and the bed sooo comfortable. The decor is modern and and such a nice bathroom (tub and a shower) for Europe. One of my favorite hotels on our trip! I would stay there again without reservation.
We did make the mistake of attempting to go to one of the wineries right up the road and encountered possibly the rudest person on our entire vacation. It was the property that is in the next area over (towards Dijon) on the left hand side (same side of the road as Le Richebourg)of the with the words Grande Cave in some metal work out front. Do avoid it at all costs. It gives me a headache just thinking about it. The man there was just an absolute horror. No need to waste precious time on such people.
My wife and I stayed for one night on two separate occasions in early January. We paid (for the same room) €69 the first time having used an internet booking site, and €95 on the second occasion having booked direct by telephone. Although the hotel was nearly empty, it still ranks as one of the best hotels in which we have ever stayed, and certainly offers exceptional value. The bedrooms are spacious, modern, comfortable and tastefully designed, with excellent beds, light-proof blinds, a stunning bathroom with a separate large walk-in shower, and a separate toilet. Excellent modern design and taste also extend to the bar and breakfast room. There is free internet access. The breakfast was simply wonderful. The hotel has no restaurant, but La Toute Petite Auberge, which also offers excellent value, is only a few yards away and there are also many gastronomic restaurants in the Cote de Nuits area. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. This hotel simply gets everything right!
Hôtel impeccable ! C'est le style d'hôtel que l'on aimerait trouver plus souvent: décoration de très bon goût, tout est parfaitement à sa place. Le personnel est remarquable et à votre écoute.
Celà change des hôtels "de luxe" avec des décors pompeux et de meubles vieillots.
A visiter absolument lors d'un séjour en Bourgogne !!!
WOW, Probably one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at and I'm in the travel industry. Very large, modern, clean and beautiful rooms. All the extras such as the robe and slippers and heated towel rack in the bath made a huge impact.
The staff was very helpful and pleasent. They also spoke good english.
This hotel is located right in the middle of the cote d'or wine route in burgundy. Pretty much half way between Beane and Dijon.
Also make sure to visit Sylvie at VTT Aventure if your interested in renting a bike to explore some of the wine routes in the area. We had a wonderful day of biking on modern, good condition bikes.
Sylvie will also lend you a map and suggest iteneraries if required. The hotel has her brochure.
Would I stay here again? DEFINATELY... I'd probably return to burgundy just to stay at this hotel and explore the glorious wine country....
Now this is a real hidden gem. Visited in Jul '06 and I think the hotel wasn't built long before that.
The hotel is situated just north of Nuits St George, which itself is just north of Beaune. Although the hotel is not in a town / village centre the hoetl does still make a great place to base yourself from and explore the area for a few days.
Rooms: Superb. Large, clean, good beds, great bathroom, air con, even blackout shutters for a perfect night's sleep.
Staff: Charming and very helpful.
Location: 20 min walk from Nuits St Georges, which is a charming little village. The hotel is also right next door to a gorgeous restaurant (Le Petite Auberge). Perfectly placed for exploring the Burgundy wine region.
Hotel generally: Spot on. Has a Sauna (30Euros per room though!), parking, small comfortable bar, and a terrace. There's also free internet access as a computer on the 1st floor landing - very handy.
Can't recommend this one enough really. Visit for a night or two if you're in the area.

... I bought a bottle of red wine. I don't usually drink wine but I am making an exception. Last night I got a dirty look from the waiter when I said I didn't want wine. I think the French (and the Italians) get insulted if you don't drink their wine.

We had been moved up to the business section but it wasn't much better. Thank God it was only an hour flight. At the end of the flight they made me wait until after everyone else de-planed.

We would then visit the Winery Les Caves Patriarches where we got to walk through the wine cellars and got to try a variety of both red and white wines.

... Figuring that it might be good to get out of the rain and sightsee indoors for a while, we visited the nearby Créme de Cassis museum. This is said to be the only area where créme de cassis, a liqueur made from black currants, is made. The strong flavors are very different from anything we had ever experienced before. At the tasting bar we learned that a 1 to 5 ratio ...
