Room was comfortable for the most part. Only issue was the shower that was basically drizzling water and a puddle of water that never drained from the bathroom. Breakfast was decent and the staff are super-helpful with transport info (which everyone will need in Tirana). Location is superb in the middle of the Blloku area with all the good restaurants...

We spent one night here at the beginning of our trip into Macedonia. The hotel is very basic, but perfect for the purpose of visiting the city, ideally located within walking distance of everything in central Tirana. Upon arrival, we were told that the prime minister lives in the same street, in a block right next to the hotel on... More

Stayed two nights during a business trip. Hotel is in a very central part of Tirana, close city centre, government offices, touristic sites (Tirana is a relatively small city). Rooms are clean and comfortable, small bathroom though. Helpful staff and great breakfast. One negative is no elevator so you have to haul your luggage upstairs. I would stay again next... More

It's in a central area (close to the Italian embassy and to some of the Albanian ministries, but also to all the good restaurants of the bloku and the stadium) but it is located in a very quiet street, closed to traffic due to the fact that the prime minister lives in an apartment in the building next door. Staff... More

Book the single room on the third floor good rate and easy access to city centre from Airport bus stop can walk it in 10 mins.

Stayed here in November 2011 for three days. Very well located, very clean and staff polite and helpful. I didn't try the room service but the reception was manned all the time. This is probably the best hotel in central Tirana considering price, location and service. The staff are multilingual. I would definitely go back.

My company had chosen this hotel for its location, the positive reviews and -most certainly- the price. I have to say that the location is great: right behind one of the nicest streets in Tirana with lovely bars and cafés. A street that you can reach going through one of these bars (cafe Medusa) after leaving the hotel. However, the... More
