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. We chose an Imperial Suite and were not disappointed - all very spacious, the bathroom was well equipped, room nicely furnished and bed... More

The bathroom was huge with a shower corner, with a massage bath and a transparent glass wall to the bedroom. I had... More

My wife and I are staying at this amazing hotel and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Tirana. The location of the hotel is 8 to 10 minutes walk to the main city centre. The hotel is far enough from the main hustle and bustle of the city that it won't disturb your sleep, but walking distance if that's... More

Restaurant at the top is one of the best in Tirana with a nice view. During summer time you can have breakfast on the roof which is nice. The hotel rooms are plain and look somewhat poor in design, and not too big. Staff is nice, and the location is ok, close to Blocku area.
