I travel for work in Tirana two or three times a year. I have visited many hotels but this is my prefered hotel. It is located near the busy part of the center but is in a quiet corner. The stuff are very friendly and always with a smile. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The only disadvantage is... More

It was the perfect hotel for my three night stay in Tirana. I've never seen such a friendly staff, the location was minutes away by foot from the city attractions, but tucked back from the street and very quiet. Comfortable bed, nice balcony, cozy room, multi channel tv, much better than average breakfast selection, great rate. Really, what more could... More

Small and inexpensive but the staff there is superb. They went above and beyond in everything from arranging trips to laundry. The place is also close to numerous cafés and restaurants. Definitely recommend it for business or solo travel.

Staff was really helpful. The first day I was so jetlagged I woke up at 11am and breakfast is served til 10 am, yet the staff cook some breakfast for me. The location is just perfect. Stayed 2 nights and if I go back to Tirana one day I would stay there again for sure.

Great value for the money. I stayed here 3 nights in November 2014, and found the staff to be incredibly friendly, and quite willing to please. The room was standard, but clean with free wifi and breakfast. Sure the breakfast could have been better if the eggs weren't set out to get cold, but there were other options available. The... More

I stayed 4 nights. I traveled around Albania by taxi arranged by the hotel. It was smooth and well-organized at reasonable price. All the staffs are kind, polite and friendly. Staffs at front desk speak good English with smile.

Wonderful hotel, central location, such that everything is close at hand. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and they all spoke very good English, which was great for me of course! Very comfortable room, ATM close by, bar next door and just a 5 minute walk to The Bloc. Perfect place to stay and explore this wonderful city. I... More

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and the location was great with nice restaurants nearby and easy to walk to the bloque, opera house and other interesting places.

Excellent service and perfect location. Here I've received custom-made service and room was very clean. The owner Mr. Edmond is a very professional, honest and friendly person (like all the other people of the staff): he's a former mathematics teacher...and he was always happy to help me. He arranged my trips around Albania and I always paid the best price.... More

Would absolutely recommend this place. It's very small, but comfortable. It's pretty new and kept very clean. Staff are super friendly and sweet. Location is great - very near to main boulevard and basically equidistant to the city park and the bloque. It's near some of the nicest restaurants in the city.
