Reviewed May 19, 2014

This mid sized hotel located about 200 meters from Skanderbeg Square is a very comfortable, reasonably priced place. Rooms are a touch small but that is not unusual for Europe. Hotel is impeccably clean. Staff is super friendly. Breakfast is better than many hotels. And about 300 meters down the street is a fabulous brick oven pizza joint run by the sweetest young couple.

This hotel is located right in the center of the City and easy access to the main attractions and restaurants. free Parking, breakfast and Internet is a plus. We rented the appartment , 2 rooms ,2 bathrooms , huge living room and well equiped kitchen , plenty of space for 5-6 adults . Hardwood Flooring and clean linens made this place feel like home away from home. The staff is very helpful and polite. We will stay here again and recommend this hotel to all our friends . Great place to stay !

We really enjoyed our stay for 4 nights at this hotel. It's a great location just 5 minutes from the main square. Rooms are very clean with modern furnishing. Breakfast is excellent with something for everyone. The staff are very helpful indeed, arranging taxis for us and always with a big smile when we arrived and left. Only downside is that there is a school next door and some of the kids can be quite noisy in the morning. Apart from that I would highly recommend this hotel when visiting this interesting city.

I can recommend the hotel to anyone. Friendly staff, the F/O Manager spoke very good English and was helpful and gave us some very good tips where to spend the last days of our holidays. The rooms are clean, , comfortable beds and sufficiently equipped , with airco and heating system. Very central location, free safe parking, and good value for money, not expensive at all, when u consider breakfast was included. Also it was very quiet a night, which is not always the case with hotels located in the centre of big towns.

We stayed at Vila e Arte for five nights and were overall satisfied. The hotel lies within walking distance from Sheshi Skenderbeu, the center of Tirana and the area around offers a small grocery store a bakery and a fast food restaurant. The rooms were small but nicely furnished and clean. The only thing one might want to consider is that they can get pretty cold if you are not there during summer. Aside from that we don't have any compalints and can really recommend this hotel

The hotel is well situated to act as a base for exploring Tirana - only a 5 minute stroll from the main square and major boulevards. The stop for the airport bus is also quite near, but the bus runs only once an hour on the hour.

The hotel itself is tucked away behind the Observatory and is nice and quiet at night. The room is well furnished with a comfortable bed and the shower room perfectly adequate - but be patient. the hot water can take a little time to arrive. Once I had worked out how to operate the air-conditioning unit to heat the room, there were only two things to complain about. The view was less than inspiring (overgrown and litter strewn bit of land) but, more importantly, I found the lighting to be inadequate for reading. This would probably not be a problem in the summer, but at this time of year it gets dark around 17:00.

The staff were helpful, breakfast was good and there was an open-air terrace just outside reception - again, a facility more appropriate for warmer weather. I thought the Vila e Arte was good value for money and would probably have given a 4 star rating if I had been visiting in the summer.

Good value cheap hotel close to the centre of Tirana. Varied reviews suggest it may be a bit of a lottery with rooms but mine was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Room is clean, wifi works well. Breakfast is limited but nice.I was able to leave my bag there when my bus was delayed. Area surrounding is a bit run down but typical of Tirana.

The staff could not do enough for me and their attentiveness was appreciated. Excellent!
