Staying at Florian's Guesthouse was great. Florian is extremely helpful and accommodating. He seems to genuinely have the best interest of his guests in mind at all times. The fresh garden cooked dinner and bottomless homemade wine each night is an amazing value for only 5 euro. Would definitely recommend staying here is you pass through northern Albania.

We had a wonderful stay at Florian's and could not have had a better start to our journey in Albania. Florian is very friendly and he gave us a good introduction to the country. It really feels like living with an Albanian family. All the food is organic from his own garden and the wine is made by his father....

My friends and I stayed at Florian's backpacker hostel, which was also very nice, and we came to his guest house after a nice tour. The tour was of a bridge as well as a castle, and we heard some interesting stories about both of them. After the tour we ate dinner at the guest house. We had amazing homemade...

Certainly one of the best staying in Albania. Just a bit outside of the crowded city, Florian Guesthouse gives you a superb environment to relax. The place is unique. Domestic feeling, little animals, vineyard, garden ... Everything you need to enjoy. Of course there is Florian, the most amiable person I met during my trip in Albania. You will get...

We stayed in the hostel for two nights and must say it was the best decision we made. The owner of the hostel, Florian, has a dinner every night at his guest house which you have to go to, delicious home made food and wine. Florian makes you feel very welcome and gives you an insight into Albanian culture and...

This is what I would call a guesthouse. Florian and his family is very welcoming and you'll feel the real Albanian atmosphere at their guesthouse. Florian is also a very professional tour organizer. He can arrange trips to the mountains and other attractions in the North of Albania. You'll have home made dinner every evening at Florian's, and it's very...

As a family we wanted to get the best out of our stay in Albania and decided that a Homestay would be the most productive and encompassing.And so it proved and whereas Florian's is in effect a hostel,it's a fmily home too and everyone was wonderfully friendly. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy and facilities good. The family...

We had such a lovely time here. This guesthouse is a real 'homestay' experience and a wonderful opportunity to share this Albanian home. All the vegetarian food is grown in the garden and prepared by Florian's mother while the delicious wine is made by his father. Florian is very helpful and will arrange visits, taxis to the airport or hiking...

I spent two nights here with my family as part of a Balkans hiking trip, and the guesthouse felt like a little piece of home. Florian is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating, his family is incredibly kind (not to mention: outstanding cooks!), and the property is essentially a beautiful mini-garden with grapevines overhead and chickens underfoot. Florian's father is a vintner,...
