Excellent three star's hotel with spacious rooms, good location close to town center and lots of restaurants quite close. The service was very friendly and the breakfast satisfactory as well. We will stay here again if we visit Tirana once more in the future. I should add that the free wifi worked all the time without problems.

The hotel is an average hotel. However, there is a very serious point in this hotel. Particularly the irresponsible way in which the hotel is dealing with passports. These are stored in the key boxes at reception. Visible for everybody. If there is nobody at the reception (what i have experienced different times) these could be taken away easily. I... More

This was my third stay at City Hotel - actually 3rd and 4th, I stayed here twice within a week, as I criss-crossed Albania. This is a favorite because you have the feel of a small, family-run hotel, with the center-of-town location and all the things you need just around you. I've stayed in several of their rooms - this... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the time I'd spent at this hotel during the last weekend of June 2015. The hotel itself comprises of 15 rooms with a comparably large breakfast room. The breakfast consisted mainly of different types of cheese, cold meats, eggs (boiled and fried - there were options on offer for scrambled eggs and omelettes), juices, cereals etc. As... More

I have been on holiday in Tirana for a weekend, and i Stayed here. The place is very good, just 5 minutes walking for the main square, and near to the main attractions. Staff is good. Rooms are small, but in anyway it is really value for money. Recomended if you are looking at a good inexpensive solutions.

This was a very nice Hotel family owned I believe , well located and a stones throw from the centre of Tirana. It had bars and restaurants less than a minutes walk away yet was still in a quiet setting. It was a relatively small Hotel with just 15 rooms which meant you got the personal touch and those on...

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.
