I wanted to see Lake Ohrid and Struga was along my way to Skopje. Everything was as advertised. As I like to walk, the actual town, which was quite active Friday evening and Saturday morning, was about a 10-12 minute walk. Note that the sidewalks are being refurbished and it is a very dark walk at night (personal safety OK; just easy to trip over something if you are not watching). This appears to be a family-owned hotel and restaurant. The restaurant was quite popular with locals for dinner and breakfast. I had fresh fish for dinner and was quite good. And the breakfast with the room was a traditional local breakfast and was also quite good. It should be noted that smoking is ubiquitous in the Balkans, inside and outside. While I had to sign a document that I would not smoke in the room, smoking in restaurants is allowed. Because this is the custom, I’ll leave this at 5 stars. Also, if you expect a lake view room, be sure to book as such. Not all rooms have the lake view.
