“We felt welcome!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We stayed at Hotel Kruja in Tirana for one week. It is a small hotel and conveniently priced. We booked in advance from Germany.

The rooms are very clean with TV and a fridge. As we were there at the beginning of April, we appreciated the cozily warm room. The hotel is in the centre of Tirana, about a five-minute-walk from Skanderbeg Square. The street is very buzy, so it can be fairly noizy. The hotel does not provide lunch and dinner, but there are small markets and cafés close by (and there is also a café located at the hotel itself). It is an excellent location to tourist sites.

At our arrival at the airport, we felt welcome, there were no problems at all. The staff offered good service, was extremely helpful and friendly! We were always treated so well and with utter respect, and we simply felt at ease.

The hotel is ideally located for going on trips to the countryside, so we went, for example, to Apollinia, Flora, Shkodra, Kruja, Lake Ohrid and some other places. Our guide from the hotel - he was our driver, too - spoke English very well, he was always in time, was extremely helpful and pleasant and made our stay in Albania worth while. Thanks to him, we got to know so many interesting things about the country, which was extraordinary for us.

An Albanian hotel where the management actually want to serve you and be helpful, and as such to be applauded and encouraged. Really welcoming and helpful staff, trying to be a proper hotel and not just the proprietors of a room for you to sleep in. Our room was rather cramped, but attractively decorated, and had everything you would need. The central air-conditioning worked very well, and so the room was pleasantly cool, which was absolutely necessary. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean. Breakfast was perfectly decent. When our group left the staff came out and waved goodbye to us!
It is extremely well-situated, only a few minutes' walk from Skanderbeg Square, and with a couple of cafes selling outstanding ice-cream nearby.

Like others have said - really good value hotel, clean and comfortable.Rooms are average sizes, lots of towels and shampoo. Included in the price is buffet breakfast (continental) and internet. Reception staff were really knowledgeable and helpful. Short walk into the city and on a quiet street with lots of little cafes, at the end of the road is the airport bus which was also very convienent. Would recommend to anyone especially at the value or 50 euros per room.

Hotel is fairly centrally located about a 5 min walk from Skanderberg Sq. and Kavales St.
For 50 euros we booked the "matrimonial 'suite", rm 104 overlooking the detention center for illegal immigrants. People start bringing food to the detainees as early as 7am so it can be fairly noisy on this one way street.
Hotel is small, staff friendly, rooms very clean. Air Conditioning is OK, but be prepared to know the location of the breaker switches if you want a/c other than the times scheduled...which we could never figure out. Breakfast is minimal, doesn't vary, and located in a back room rather than the bar area out front.
Overall, it's value priced, and good for a couple of nights, but not a longer stay.

During our vacation in Albania we stayed altogetther 5 nights in this hotel during 3 different visits. In Tirana you will not find an equally good hotel for such a low price. The staff is very hospitable and friendly. We had for instance free access to Internet as long as we sished. On the last day they treated us on a free raki together with some staff members. We booked the hotel in advance from the Netherlands and later on from other locations in Albania.
The only drawback was the buffet breakfast, served in a quite sterile special room. It was exactly the same every day and was quite mediocre. When you stay there one night, no problem, but not for 5 days in a row.

Good Hotel for that price. I stayed there for 4 nights, rooms are clean with tv, fridge and a bath with shower. You only do not come during wintertime...no heating at the hotel. When I was there in end of october it was still 20 - 22°C, so it was ok.
The hotel is in a nice location, some restaurants around there and to the skanderbeg place you need not more than a 10 minutes walk.
To the breakfast I cant say anything, bc I normaly don't eat breakfast....but the restaurants down there looks nice.
Its not a luxury hotel....only basic but I think for that price it is a good choose.

The stuff is very helpful and take care that you have a nice stay.
