I recently booked a budget hotel for my 13 day visit to Tirana .. which I quickly discovered was a huge mistake! After lasting 3 days, I checked the Internet, read the positive reviews, and headed out in the rain to Freddys Hotel, where I explained to Julian and Freddy that I needed a hotel room for 10 days. Freddy and Julian went to work, and I was soon comfortably set up in a large, immaculate room, with large tv, free Internet, and large shower, all at an excellent price. The hotel itself is bright, clean and spotless,and serves an excellent breakfast. There is an English speaking staff member at the front desk 24/7. The location is amazing ... close to everything you want to see, but far enough way to avoid the crowds .Upon request, you can also arrange a shuttle to the airport. If all this wasn't enough, the staff is amazing!. The cleaning staff are forever hard at work (the place was spotless! my own house should be so clean), and always smiling and cheerful.The lovely lady who was in charge of the kitchen always greeted me with a smile, knew how i liked my coffee after the first day, and asked me about my plans for the day, often making suggestions. Julian was particularly friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed several chats with him about life in Albania (once when we were standing outside after the earthquake!). Freddy was always about, making certain guests were happy. Look no further for a hotel, folks. The staff of Freddys Hotel really understand the importance of friendly and helpful service, and go well beyond the call of duty to ensure their guests are enjoying themselves.Thank you to all for making my first visit to Tirana so pleasant.…
Very good hotel run by freddy (it used to be an hostel run by his farther )but this is no hostel ,there is a variety of rooms available each one is very modern fresh and clean ,the breakfast is very good with plenty of choice for the size of the hotel ,i cannot praise freddy and his staff enough for the welcome we were given ,the hotel is situated just a few streets from the main square about 5 minutes walk and about the same the the market area which is full of restuarantes and small bars ,it was my first visit to tirana and if i go again this will be my number one hotel to stop at thanks again freddy and staff for the welcome you gave us
The hotel was located within walking distance of the center of Tirana. Staff were very helpul. Wifi in the hotel was strong. Breakfast offered a variety of choices. The room was a little small but comfortable.
We are a Norwegian couple together with our 20 year son on holiday in Albania and Balkan. Never been in Albania or Tirana before and Freddys was our first meeting with this cosy and friendly City. Great hospitality, friendly staff, wonderful rooms and a very nice and tasteful breakfast. These guys do everything for you to have a great stay in Tirana. The management is helpful and polite. A small Hotel which we deeply recommend.
