Tourists Find Hotels in Macedonia Too Expensive

Foreign visitors in Macedonia found the hotel prices in the country to be too high, national media reported today.

According to visitors, cited by the Vreme newspaper, accommodation prices in Skopje are higher than in London or Vienna. Macedonia’s capital boasts the highest accommodation prices because it is considered as the country’s business centre, the publication explained, adding that weekend rates were often lower than week-day ones.

Hotels in other towns were also expensive, starting at 20 euro, and much higher in tourist resorts.

On the other hand, representatives of the Macedonian hoteliers’ association told the publication that hotel prices would decrease when low-cost airlines begin operating in Macedonia, thus bringing up the number of visitors to the country.

According to them, accommodation prices in Macedonia are following the tendencies of the regional market.
