Reviewed February 27, 2013

Encouraged by the positive reviews on Trip Advisor I booked a family room at The Theranda Hotel in Tirana.

Despite being quite tricky to find and on a back residential street, the hotel itself is absolutely charming. Perhaps not quite what you'd expect from the title "boutique" hotel in the London sense but really clean, well presented with flowers, a chaise long in reception, fish in a beautiful bowl and interesting decorations. We were greeted by the receptionist and the hotel manager who seemed genuinely delighted to see us.

Our room was comfortable and clean - a large double bed, a single bed for a six year old and a good sized travel cot for the baby. There was a fruit plate set out with cutlery and sweets on our pillows. The adjoining shower room was spotlessly clean and had an array of luxury toiletries and plenty of soft white towels. There was an additional heater in our room which was a nice thought as it was quite chilly when we arrived.

Breakfast is served in the spacious restaurant directly opposite the hotel, accessed through a little garden. A large buffet breakfast was provided with juices,breads, toast, danish pastries, cereals, yoghurts, salamis, salad and fruit. We were also offered omelettes or eggs cooked any style and of course teas and coffees. Nothing was too much trouble and the waiters were friendly and attentive. Their coffee machine was playing up when we arrived and they were desperately upset not to be able to offer us espressos - not a problem in the least but I was touched by their concern.

On check out the manager escorted us to our car and thanked us for staying with them. The room including breakfast was 110 Euros - superb value for a family of four, made all the more special by the care and attention bestowed on us by our aimiable hosts. I'd thoroughly recommend this sweet and delightfully quirky little hotel - a real testament to the famous Albanian hospitality.

I visited Tirana for business in February 2012 and stayed at Theranda Hotel for 1 night. I can warmly recommend Theranda Hotel to all Tirana visitors. Nice, small hotel with , good room, excellent Internet access, fruit plate on arrival. The staff and the manager are exceptionally friendly and helpful. I always felt very welcome at Theranda in contrast to big chain hotels, where one often is just guest number xxx. Good breakfast in the hotel cafe, they can prepare whatever you order. Attentive and friendly waiter.
Will definitely stay at Theranda next time.

Very friendly, helpful and efficient service from the staff and management. Location is great - very close to the Block area, but away from any traffic and noise. Rooms are airy, bright and clean. Breakfast is just the job. And there are nice touches in the rooms: mint on the pillow, fruit plate on arrival. Don't be put off by the shabby access road to hotel.

i would recommend this hotel to all visitors to Tirana. It is in an excellent location in the Blokku area of Tirana. Lots of restaurants and bars within a short walk, but the hotel is very quiet. All the staff speak good English and always have a smile and a nice greeting. Very good Internet access.

Very nice hotel with the best personal ever. You will feel very welcome. The location is super, quiet, but still close to very nice resturantes and pubs. Nice breakfast restaurant, where they would get whatever you want for breakfast.

Room Tip: One of the rooms got a Jacuzzi, and we got it. To be recommended.

This hotel is a little gem, tucked away in a quiet side street 2 minutes walk away from all the action in Tirana. I asked for quietness, and boy did they deliver. I had 9 nights of peaceful sleep, which is unusual for me. However, what impressed me most about The Theranda hotel was the first class customer service offered by all of the staff particularly the receptionists and bar staff. On arrival the hotel had arranged taxi pick up from the airport which was necessary as the hotel is tucked away down a side street. Although the immediate surroundings are not the best, the hotel is well located beside the vibrant Block region of the city. The rooms were very clean and extremely comfortable. Good wifi access which is a pre-requisite for me. The staff,especially General Manager Martin Gjonaj, went out of his way to make my stay memorable and comfortable. His team have been extremely well trained in delivering first class customer service.

Well done Mr. Gjonaj and your outstanding team.
