“Would happily stay again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Very friendly, helpful and efficient service from the staff and management. Location is great - very close to the Block area, but away from any traffic and noise. Rooms are airy, bright and clean. Breakfast is just the job. And there are nice touches in the rooms: mint on the pillow, fruit plate on arrival. Don't be put off by the shabby access road to hotel.

i would recommend this hotel to all visitors to Tirana. It is in an excellent location in the Blokku area of Tirana. Lots of restaurants and bars within a short walk, but the hotel is very quiet. All the staff speak good English and always have a smile and a nice greeting. Very good Internet access.

Very nice hotel with the best personal ever. You will feel very welcome. The location is super, quiet, but still close to very nice resturantes and pubs. Nice breakfast restaurant, where they would get whatever you want for breakfast.

Room Tip: One of the rooms got a Jacuzzi, and we got it. To be recommended.

Theranda hotel centraly located in the heart of city in a quite side of the city center.. Everywhere just a few minutes in walking distance. Big , clean and cosy rooms with comfortable beds . ı have travelled more than 70 counties in the world ı never seen such a friendly and helpfull staff . (hotel manager Martin and front desk manager Ela and other front desk staff were very helpfull and friendly).
It is worth to stay this hotel if you are travelling to Tiran.
I was in business trip to Tiran but you can choose Theranda hotel both holiday and business purpose.Free internet access and god breakfast.

This hotel is a little gem, tucked away in a quiet side street 2 minutes walk away from all the action in Tirana. I asked for quietness, and boy did they deliver. I had 9 nights of peaceful sleep, which is unusual for me. However, what impressed me most about The Theranda hotel was the first class customer service offered by all of the staff particularly the receptionists and bar staff. On arrival the hotel had arranged taxi pick up from the airport which was necessary as the hotel is tucked away down a side street. Although the immediate surroundings are not the best, the hotel is well located beside the vibrant Block region of the city. The rooms were very clean and extremely comfortable. Good wifi access which is a pre-requisite for me. The staff,especially General Manager Martin Gjonaj, went out of his way to make my stay memorable and comfortable. His team have been extremely well trained in delivering first class customer service.

Well done Mr. Gjonaj and your outstanding team.

...as already used by others this is the right term, I think.
A small hotel, somewhat hidden in an alley, in the court yard of other houses, with signs however properly directing towards the hotel.
Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and spacious room with an even large appropriate sized bath room with nice and modern equipped sanitary facilities (eg. shower cabin) and complimentary Wifi connection.
Compared to other 3*/4* hotels I stayed in during a one week Albania trip the Theranda hotel is really a good choice, especially if you do not want to stay in anonymous hotels of large chains.
Furthermore the Theranda is well located, within a 10-15 min walking distance from Skanderbeg square. Should you arrive in Tirana by train better get a taxi, otherwise walking will take too long.
One thing at the hotel that maybe could be improved is the choice of the breakfast buffet, still recognizing its typicality and one is not in a region/hotel with continental breakfast, and an accessible coffee machine (didn't really want to ask a third time for coffee).
All in all should I come to Tirana the next time I will stay in the Theranda again.

Don't be put off by the approach to this hotel, set in the middle of a block of Communist era flats. It's a little gem of comfort and quiet in a frenetic city. The reception and bar/breakfast staff are helpful and friendly and as other reviewers have said, the breakfast is better than you will normally find in Albania. You can eat or drink in a nice courtyard garden when the weather's good. A downside is that, due to the anarchic town planning, the neighbouring flats are quite close but we weren't bothered by any noise at night. The location is on the edge of the "block" area, now the centre for bars, restaurants and clubs, so it's a safe and lively area with lots of eating and drinking possibilities. A tip - take a torch (flashlight) when you go out at night to avoid the holes and puiddles outside!

Room Tip: If your room has a jacuzzi, you have to hold the shower head while you shower and it's not so ea...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your comments about our Hotel with other travelers on TripAdvisor.
Our location is quite central, as we are in walking distance to most of Tirana`s major attractions, yet “ a little gem of comfort and quiet” -like you describe it above.
We have now put signposts showing directions on each junction prior to our hotel, to help our guests find us easier.
With respect to your comments about the situation of the streets of the neighborhood, we are in constant contacts with our local authority, to help improve their conditions as we would like to ensure our guests find the same comfort we strive to provide in our hotel, outside our premises too.
Thank you again for your kind words, and we will be delighted to welcome you back soon!
Kind regards
