“Very Good Hotel in a good position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

My wife and I stayed in this Hotel for two nights, June 25th and 26th 2013 as part of an Albanian tour. We had a room at the front of the Hotel overlooking the main Square of the City, the room 508 was big enough and clean and well maintained. The room safe was not working when we arrived but a call to reception brought two technicians to the room to mend it, after much effort it seemed the safe could not be fixed so another one was produced and installed. The bathroom came equipped with both a bathtub and over bath shower and a hairdryer all was clean and in good working order. Breakfast was a delight taken on the outside terrace of the second floor restaurant with omelettes freshly prepared to order along with bacon, sausages etc. This Hotel is very central and it is easy to find alternative restaurants , bars ,shops et al.
The only downside was NOT the fault of the Hotel in anyway, that was that the general election had just taken place and the results were declared resulting in a change of government, the supporters of the Socialist party , the winners , celebrated long and noisily with much hooting, screeching of tyres, shouting and flag waving which went on long into the night and early morning. Still that aside and it did result in a disturbed nights sleep this is a good Hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The location was right on the city center. The rooms were very familiar so I could feel like home. I had a perfect view of the downtown from my window. I stayed there during weekend and I paid much lower price than I have paid in any four star hotel. All the staff was very friendly and offering help all along. There is no doubt: Tirana International Hotel will be my first choice whenever I have to visit Albania.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room looking at the square :)

This Tirana Convention Hotel is recommendable, due we already had been there few Times and always got there a nice and friendly Service. It is perfectly located, directly in the Heart of the Center and many Shops and Restaurants are just beside. Train Station is 10 Minute walking away from the Hotel.

The two positives are good location and, by Albanian standards, a good breakfast.

Despite not being full, claimed they did not have a double rather than the twin we were allocated. No pretence even to check. Room was tired and dated and window dirty. Bathroom was clean though. Took three requests and a 24 hour wait before the maintenance man came to change the batteries in the non-functioning safe. Meant we had to carry our valuables round the city. Has the feeling of a communist era hotel reduced to catering for package tours.

Room Tip: Makes little difference as requests ignored.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking time to review our Hotel! Your feedback is highly appreciated and helps to us to improve in the future.
Thank you for the nice comments for Hotel Location and breakfast service. We are sorry we were not able to accommodate you in a room with double bed but the Hotel has been fully booked on that date; and we would like to explain that the reception staff have all the necessary information of the room’s daily occupancy and for this reason they have communicated to you directly that it was not possible to accommodate you in a different room. To avoid such situations that could happen in every hotel, we could really appreciate if we had a note with the special request for the bed type at the booking time and we would be happy to provide the room as per your request.
Thank you again for the feedback and we will do our best to meet all your expectations if we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future!
Kind regards,

Without knowing what to expect in Tirana and not wanting to book without having seen we arrived in the city. We were quickly overwhelmed by the craziness of the city and after having looked at various small hotels we decided it would be safer to stay in a big hotel. Big Mistake! With everything we experienced in this hotel you would expect we would get a full refund, all we got was excuses, lies and disrespect by the staff including the Sales Manager. To make the story short: First the manager at the spa lied about opening hours trying to keep us out, when we didn't budge he got in a really bad mood and was mistreating the staff who were being friendly. Second the AC did not work, neither did the WIFI and the toilet kept making noises. We were only moved to a better room way after midnight after big discussion and their refusal to give us a better room (they were offering an inferior room), and after we threatened to leave. The AC in the other room did work but not enough for a comfortable sleep (2 am by that time). WIFI in the second room did work, but the toilet, bidet and sink were clogged - not a nice sight. Asked to speak to manager in the morning, was never available... only Sales Manager, who has no idea of customer service, a joke and waste of time. Instead of offering apologies she decided to argue with us and not believe our complaints until someone of her staff was available to go and check what we were saying. Even then she kept trying to make excuses. Only good thing is the view of the square from the cafe but you don't need to stay there overnight for it. After having traveled to 93 countries this hotel ranks in the top 5 worst. All the problems can be forgiven, it happens, but what is inexcusable is the lies and attitude of the staff, especially coming from a Sales Manager. Better off staying in one of the smaller hotels in Bloku which is the area to walk around for restaurants and bars.
