It's a two star hotel in a very good location with not perfect facilities, and staff who know how to make you feel home. The rooms are small and the bed was a bit of noisy, however were very clean. Our room was on the quite side of the Hotel, so sleeping quality was quite good. Breakfast is good, but could get boring after three days. Roberto is a special kind man who welcomed us every day and served the breakfast, the Cappuccinos were great, I also loved the cakes and fruits. They served us free breakfast in the room on the last morning (see the picture). Security of the hotel is great, you feel you are staying in a safe hotel as I found the city not so safe. The hotel is located right at the heart of the old city and close to old churches, fashion shops, fruit and fish market, Pubs and night clubs and the central station. From the airport take the buses of the company called "Prestia e Comande" and get off in the central station. From there you need to walk about 15 minutes to reach the hotel. Don't be surprised once you see the building of the hotel, it looks quite run down from the outside but inside is modern and nice.
Overall this hotel is a good value of price with a great location and very nice, helpful staff. If you love modern hotels with spa facilities it wouldn't be your favourite hotel, but if you intend seeing the city and being close to touristic features, and you want nice people and good price, don't miss this hotel.
