This is a really nice place to stay and excellent value for money. The home-grown food was really nice too, and at dinner the owner can regale you with stories and offer you good wine. It is a little far out of town but it's not exactly pricey for cabs, and you can borrow a bike if you're brave.

The best place to stay. This guesthouse is very much your home away from home. We got the opportunity to stay with an Albanian family, in an Albanian setting and learnt a lot about Albanian culture and history from Florian (Mr. Spartacus, because he looks like Russel Crowe). His mother cooked a meal for the guests every night (the price... More

We unfortunately only stayed one night here, but wished we stayed longer! Although, when you get in the cab from the centre of town, you feel like you are getting taken into the middle of no where, but we were very relieved to find a wonderful self sustainable guesthouse! The owner was absolutely wonderful and so friendly. It is a... More

Florian's is the perfect place to stay if planning to take the Lake Koman Ferry. We planned the whole trip from his guesthouse. The bus collected us from outside his door. The price included the ferry which was just €10. We stayed in accommodation in Valbone and Theth recommended by Florian. The lodging was comfortable, the food was great and... More

Florian and his family are very nice, if you're looking for a few days away from the city then this is ideal. They offer optional extra local food which is nice to try. They only issue with the place is the distance related. Be aware that the guest house is actually in the next village over, about 4km or so,... More

It is really nice place to stay. Staff is really friendly and helpful. They can speak good English. breakfast and dinner are good, as well as the home-made wine. everything you get for breakfast and dinner is made from the stuff they grown in their own garden. It's bit further away from city centre but bus is only 500 Lek... More

My two friends were travelling from turkey to Croatia and had to stop in Albania on the way through. I am so glad we did! Florian showed us a fantastic time, showed us all around beautiful Shkoder, followed by a homecooked meal all from ingredients from his own garden. I highly recommend staying here!

Rooms are pretty clean and comfortable. Also we was amazed about hospitality of Florians family. Florian is very interesting man - he gave for us a lot of... More

Fantastic escape in Shkoder. Albania is such a surprisingly hospitable country, and Florians guesthouse was a very warm and peaceful experience. Florian himself was incredibly kind and helpful, and was very concerned with making sure we had the best experience we could. He and his family cooked a delicious homemade feast (with ingredients from their farm) which was such a... More
