Florian is a great guy who runs his guesthouse and hostel out of love for meeting people and giving travellers a good experience of Albania. I stayed 3 nights at the hostel, 2 before going to the mountains and 1 after coming back. The only thing I can remark on is the service at the hostel, it was not 100%... More

I recently stayed at Florian's Guesthouse and the experience was fantastic from the first moment to the last. Florian was one of the most gracious and helpful hosts I've ever had. He made himself available at every moment, and catered to my friend and mine's every need. He sent a driver to pick us up from Ulcinj, and having come... More

Florian is an incredibly friendly and informative man... and loves it when you leave a reviw. The guesthouse is on his family's farm / orchard which was very pleasant. The meals were fresh from the garden and the wine which was delicious is from his father. The best part honestly was just how he hung out with us though and... More

Florian and his family were extremely welcoming. We loved the fact we were immersed into an Albanian family home where we ate food prepared from their own veggie patch, washed down with their homemade red wine! As soon as we got there Florian took us to two places of interest in Shkodra and also organised our trip to Lake Koman.... More

Me and a friend stayed with Florian as part of our holiday wandering around the Balkans. Even before our arrival, Florian was helping arrange things with us, sorting us out with transport from Podgorica, making sure we would have dinner waiting on our (late) arrival etc. Two tired girls arrived at the guesthouse at about 9.30 in the evening to...

The location is within walking distance from the city. Meals are prepared from vegetables from the garden with fresh baked bread. Florian who manages the guest... More

A stay at Florian's Guesthouse is enough of a reason to come to Albania. Florian welcomes you with his kind heart and constantly does whatever he can to ensure that you have a good time in Shkoder. His guesthouse is located a short walk out of the city center on the same property where he and his family lives. Florian's... More

Although we came late in the evening, we were welcomed with a smile on the face and we could park our car within the territory, which is safeguarded with a fence and a door. The room was nice, they offer breakfast and you can also buy beer there :) It also has wifi connection.
