The stay at Florians Guesthouse was beyond excellent. We chose the guesthouse as it was a bit outside the city center and would offer a more authentic Albanian experience that if we were to have stayed at a hotel or city apartment. This is exactly what we got! The warmth and friendliness of Florian and family was amazing. From even... More

Florians Guesthouse was a lovely addition to my trip, offering a very relaxing time just outside the small city of Shkoder. Florian and his family are very generous people, very helpful and happy. Definitely recommend this to other travellers

We were recommended this place by the owner of a guesthouse in Durres, just down the coast and were glad for this otherwise we would never have found it! Florian was a great guy, knowledgable and passionate about his country and culture. The welcoming atmosphere at this place is really nice, especially if travelling solo as you get to meet... More

Staying at Florian's was the highlight of my trip. If you're looking for a good time, you'll find it at Florian's. The kindness of his entire family—as well as the people in the city—is unprecedented. And Florian's passion for Albania and for meeting people makes him not only the ideal host, but also an ideal tour guide. Florian lives on... More

Shkoder is a unique destination and staying at Florian's place will ensure you get the unfiltered albanian experience. So don't expect much of the western standards, but instead feel the beauty of simple things! Florian is very friendly and always willing to help, tell you stories and show you around! The place is very basic but clean, you can also... More

We spent one night in Florians guesthouse and it was a great experience. The house is about 5 km from the center of Skodra but easy to reach on bicycle (that Florian will lend you for free). But thats not the best thing about this place... the best thing is the hospitality of Florian and his family. We got great... More

Very nice, friendly people! Don't lose the chance to meet them! If you plan to go to Shkodra and look for a quiet, basic place with nice homemade food, Florian Guesthouse may be the best place for it!

Located just near Shkodër center, Florian's guesthouse is a must - if you wanna live a true Albanian experience. You will discover his lovely family, their culture and way of life, and it is damn interesting! Most of all, the food his mother cooks is homemade and purely fantastic. That was the main reason of my staying there (for the... More

Excellent food, amazing stories and great people! There is very little to fault this place on and is well worth a visit for its insight into Albanian life. My friend and I booked for one night but ended up staying for three!
