Nice placed to stay in Tirana on a street with bars and restaurants. Not far to centre and friendly staff. Easy to go to mountains or to the sea with own rent car. Free and safe parking at the hotel. Big rooms and pool.

Really stunning a hotel. We really can't say enough good things about this place! It's a little haven of paradise amid the high rises of Tirana. The owners have really paid a lot of attention to all the details of this beautiful hotel. The rooms are spacious, very clean and really modern - we were lucky to stay in two...

Traditional fare: Grilled vegetables, braised lamb and beans, leak pie, all very tasty and perfect. Great local house red wine. Exemplary service, Ok English... Even background music (blues) was great. If this was...

Nice, spacious rooms, good Albanian food and very, very friendly staff who speak English quite well. The location is a little too far from the city centre to walk but a taxi will drop you off at The Block for only 500Lek. Definitely worth a visit.

I stayed here for two nights recently. They have a great restaurant and very pretty grounds. It is right in Tirana and close to coffee shops, pastry shops and sightseeing. The pool was very refreshing, especially after walking in the 38° heat!!! The rooms are a little bit dark but well air conditioned and very clean.

Spent there one night including dinner and breakfast. Friendly atmosphere and I liked the rooms all with traditional furniture and decorations. Albanian feeling of houses and food. But need to improve breakfast service.

Beautiful, traditional hotel on a central and bustling road in Tirana - yet set back from road so quiet and safe. An oasis of calm - even ducks and geese in the pond at the front. 20 min walk from the main square. Amazing restaurant (if pricey compared to some). Lovely little pool, with all rooms around the pool/courtyard. Great...

This is an amazing Hotel- not luxurius-a converted chicken farm,looking so different.... The owners proudly grow their own vegetable while the meat prepared on an open fire place over charcoal is simply amazing.We had the best tasting bisteca Fiorentina,a freshly made spinach pie and an amazing bottle of red Riserva wine by Kallmet.

“Secure off street parking allows you to forget the car and forgo the stressful driving in Tirana. The bus stop is right outside the door and only costs 30 Lek (US 40 cents) per person into town. The buses are new and air conditioned.”
