“will not stay here again. could not recommend to a friend.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Room was clean. Mattress decent. By no means a four star hotel. I would say a glorified two star hotel. No iron in the room. Bathroom is small and awkward (you would have to open the shower cabin to be able to sit on the toilet). Air conditioning was non-existent even in September. We got only one key by the front desk because 'the hotel is full and we ran out of keys!'. The key didn't work the first time around and the reception manager was blaming either my watch or the proximity to my cell phone! You have to pay for the pool, at first they kept on saying that it is 6000 Lek (~$60) but after some argument they dropped the price to 600 and blamed us for misunderstanding them even though we are fluent in both Albanian and English (apparently the customer here is wrong even when they are right and no one can say SORRY!). The concept of ice is non-existent, they got utterly confused at the front desk when we asked for an ice machine or ice and kept on asking if our mini-bar fridge is broken?! Waiting staff at the restaurant (which was under construction) was quite rude and irritable. Business center had no printer and no privacy whatsoever, the whole lobby and reception could see your emails and bank statements. So save yourself some headache and head on over to Hotel Tirana International that is smack in the center of Tirana and is a true 5 star for just ~€10-15 more and where they know how to treat the customer. P.S. don't let your kids get on the playground equipment which is broken, our son fell through the broken slide!

Very friendly staff, ready to help. Resort has great amenities, I'm found of especially the German-style beergarden restaurant. Very nice pretzels :), fresh beer, great live band entertainment on weekends :).

Room Tip: Choose a room with the pool view, they are very pleasant.

Fabulous location within a few minutes from Tirana international airport,so Great for those who are traveling and want to relax in a quiet place that encroached upon and for a very low price compared to hotels in Tirana,this mean that for sure I will go back again next time.It was a very nice restaurant which served food and local beer also, interesting to know a little bit Albanian tradition.Thanks "Te Stela Resort" team for hospitality, another very valuable virtue that i found during my tour in Albania.So i suggest all those who want to find in one, the most favorable price,warm Hospitality and relaxing place.

Since first moment I walked in, I was impressed by how nice looking this hotel was. Beside the comfortable and neat room, what I really enjoyed was the gym area and the indoor swimming pool. What I liked the best was the just brewed beer and the the large variety of the albanian traditional food. Totally suggest this place.

Please avoid going there. The service is horrible! I visited it a few days ago and was really disappointed. Actually I had been there before, and was a bit sceptical on the service but my last visit proved that the service were is really terrible. For sure that was the last time me or anyone I know goes there.
