We came for a short break in February 2013 as a base for viewing sites in Albania's north (Kruja, Skhodra, Berat) and really enjoyed the Biloku location. We booked through a tour company but were so pleased to end up at the Theranda which was really a shelter from the rains on our trip. The staff was lovely, warm and so happy to see visitors in the off-season, they really made us welcome. We enjoyed the Albanian grape raki from the bar area, brought up to our second floor room - a wonderful stop - we will have to come back en route to see the south of albania.

Dear guest,

It is quite satisfying to hear that you have enjoyed your stay in our country and furthermore in our hotel, especially coming from such a seasoned traveler. We try to offer the best that Albania has to offer in tradition and culture as part of our service, always keeping a high professional attitude. Lately we have added a souvenir shop in our premises in order to fulfill the requirement of our guests. It will be a pleasure to have you with us in the future and we promise the highest level of service in every visit.

Thank you,
Best Regards,

Spent three nights at this hotel based on all the positive reviews on TA and have to say that I enjoyed the warm hospitality from all that I encountered at the hotel. The room was nice (per Albanian standards) but I left wanting to come back for the superb service and friendly staff. The hotel is a bit hard to find if you or the taxi driver is not familiar with the location but it is central and very close to the "river/canal" that flows through Tirana.

Enjoy.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write your thoughts about our hotel. We appreciate your input very much. In particular when we hear that you have had a positive experience with us.
We do provide directions on our site and in most related mappings and our staff is more than ready to assist when contacted. As you have noticed the location is very central and most taxis, once given basic directions or reference points, do not have any problems finding it. As you have noted, for the guests staying two or more nights we offer that complimentary pick up which is used by most of our guests.

We would like to thank you again for your review and for your stay with us,

Best regards
Theranda Hotel TEAM

A very nice stay in the heart of the Blloku. The staff are extremely helpful and all speak excellent English, especially Gus who lived in the U.S. for while. The little outdoor courtyard is a nice oasis. On the downside, my room seemed a little worn, not bad, just less nice than expected for the price; and the window view was nothing to write home about. Still, highly recommended.

We stayed two nights in the Theranda Hotel when we arrived in Albania. The receptionists and the waiter spoke excellent English as well as several other languages. They were anxious to help. We got a free room upgrade. The decor was a sort of Scandinavian Modern but was comfortable. (see pictures) The breakfast was mostly cold items but there was cereal, several kinds of yogurt, milk, several kinds of coffee and tea, cold cuts and several kinds of fresh bread. They also ran out to the market just before breakfast time to get fresh fruit and vegetables. The shower was a little leaky but it was not a big problem. There is plenty of hot water but the water system is different. Ask at the desk if you take an early morning shower and seem to have trouble getting hot water. You just need to let it run for a while if you shower i the early AM.

Room Tip: We stayed in the section of the hotel that is above the reception. It was quiet.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for choosing to stay at Theranda Hotel and more so for taking the time to leave such a positive review. We are glad your experience concurs with that of many others in being a positive one. We especially value your comments on the things that need improving. and the hot water delay for the smaller building where the room you stayed in is located is an We have in the last few days installed a circulation pump which speeds up the flow of hot water to the smaller building where your room was located, which should decrease the waiting time to only a few seconds, same as the rest of the hotel.

We hope to welcome you again at our hotel
Best regards

Theranda is by far the best hotel in Tirana. It is located within an easy walk of the city center but set aside enough to ensure that you won't be kept up by all the Tirana traffic. I've stayed here twice now with visiting family and enjoyed my stay equally both times. The staff are friendly and speak excellent English.

We spent one night in this hotel in the context of an 18-days trip (15 hotels) through the western Balkans. It is probably one of the very few boutique hotels in Tirana, if not the only one. It is very well located, very close to the trendy “blocu” quarter with lots of bars and restaurants and within walking distance from the city centre (Skenderbey square, 10 minutes). We had a large room in nice pastel colours, with a large bathroom with a huge whirlpool. Everything worked perfectly. Two bottles of mineral water offered in the room. The breakfast buffet was rich, the staff was attentive and very friendly, keen to provide touristic information. The hotel offers free closed parking (for two cars at most).
