Executive rooms are excellent, very well equipped and spacious with a touch of luxury and class. Although I never normally eat in a hotel this is the exception. First class cuisine and service. Frequented by business and embassy people and the local high-society.

I had a really fantastic room with chimney and huge bathroom with separate toilet, separate shower and a jacuzzi. The staff is very friendly and the restauraant is on top of the terrace with a great view of Tirana.

One of the worst hotels I have stayed at due to the high amount of noise in the hotel and in the area, preventing sleep. Noisy bar on the terrace, where live music travels throughout the building. Also, conference room and restaurant host frequent parties, receptions also with very loud live music, that reverberates throughout the hotel, as it is... More

Tirana is a quaint but dynamic and trendy city but to have a hotel like Xheko Imperial Hotel elevates it to a top-rated city. The hotel was undergoing renovation and we could see how much grander it would become when it is finished. The hotel design is grand and classy but the best part is the room we stayed in.... More

A warm welcome from the staff and excellent attention throughout our stay. The room was magnificent, extremely comfortable, spotless and the highest of standards through furnishings and finishes. There is renovation work ongoing at the moment which could be a bit annoying but the overall experience more than makes up for it. An excellent rooftop restaurant & bar is a... More

Just returned from a great 3 night stay in this hotel. The hotel is in a good location in Tirana and has a nice bar and restaurant although the best asset was the friendly and helpful staff.
