The building itself seems ugly.

I've seen it, it's really nice, but I guess that's my opinion.

^I think he's referring to the first part built, the fairly basic cube you can see in the first pic of my second post. I wouldn't disagree, it's nothing special and poorly cared for. It's the complex as a whole that is really great.
The cubic building contributes not from street level but when seen from a high point. It's really imposing that way and my suspicion has always been that its silhouette has inspired Ceausescu for the design of the People's House. Unfortunately I can't find any image with it seen from a high point.

Edit: found one, same source as bellow:

Speaking of the People's House, this is an extraordinary view (not necessarily for the right reasons):

I like that part, the only thing wrong with it is the air conditioners

Hotel on mountain Vodno, above Skopje, Macedonia. Probably built in the late 1960's or in the early 1970's.
