I recently spent 4 nights at the MonarC Hotel in Tirana, based entirely on TripAdvisor recommendations. It’s a small, well located hotel on the corner of George W. Bush and Jeanne D’Arc Boulevards. Tirana is a relatively compact city, and the hotel is only about a 10 minute walk from Skanderbeg Square. I arrived at the hotel and was greeted... More

I stayed at the MonarC in early November 2015 and can't fault it. The location is excellent, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff were superb, always cheerful and courteous and extremely helpful -- whether with tickets, recommendations for restaurants or assistance and directions for places inside and outside Tirana. It was my first trip to Albania and... More

Nice hotel and staff. On the minus side are the noisy street and the very uncomfortable, stiff beds. The traffic situation outside the hotel is really bad and the noise gets in to your room. Breakfast also poor and service slow. The rooftop bar is great with nice staff.

We arrived to find a very comfortable and well-appointed room, one of only 12 in the hotel. The breakfasts (included) were quite good - eggs or omelets on order, with sausage, fruits, cheese, etc. The dinner we enjoyed at the restaurant was first-rate and (for a hotel restaurant) not at all out of line on pricing. We enjoyed great care... More

Hotel Monarc must be the friendliest hotel in Europe. The staff are simply fantastic - good advice about what to do and where to eat. Really good coffee in the lounge on the 4th floor.
