I arrived without my i-phone charger on a Sunday afternoon. Reception staff could not have been more helpful, saying if I could not buy a lead they could lend me one. I found a little shop selling - leads - walk up past Coin turn, right and than at a taxi rank turn left it is there. I had then taken my wrong wallet to the shop. They were happy for me to take the lead and return with the cash half an hour later ! I can't imagine that would happen anywhere else.
There are not many restaurants that take credit cards in Tirana. The hotel recommended a good restaurant close by but it was very busy. The hotel was very dead on Sunday night.
The breakfasts were really excellent.
I found the porn channels very funny - they were free, despite a reference to charges in their out of date guide to the hotel services.
It was a bit disappointing there was no internet connection by the pool. I wanted to work whilst sitting in the sun one morning.
I found the conservatory area quieter but smoky, and the non smoking bar area cleaner but noisier - so had to make a compromise in where I worked. Also the quality of wireless signal in the conservatory was variable.
The central location was ideal for me. The bar prices are expensive compared to outside - but it is good to see a hotel of this quality in Tirana, so i don't begrudge them that. My visit was much better overall than it was when I last came five years ago largely due to the comforts of this hotel.
My only criticisms would be regarding the liquid soap which I personally dislike and think only belongs in budget hotels, and the flimsy shower curtain that had a habit of coming down when I pulled it. It was easily clipped back in place but ti was an irritation. Minor gripes compared to what they got right !
