This is a great budget hotel it seems in a central location. Wifi works well and staff are friendly. The shower was broken so you had to hold it but pressure and heat in water was great. The rooms where spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was made to order and while basic did the job. Staff have been very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: I was on 2nd floor

We stayed 3 nights at this lovely hotel and we really enjoyed it. The rooms were nice and comfortable and the breakfast tasty. Excellent value for money, and 10 mins walk to the centre of Tirana.
Thank you and we shall return!

I came over to Albania for a wedding and stayed at the Stela hotel for 3 nights. The hotel offers breakfast as standard - choice of eggs, bacon and sausage, bread, salad, toast and jams - good choice for a 3 star hotel!
The rooms were very clean - i stayed in 2 rooms over the 3 nights (due to a late booking of the 3rd night) and both rooms were spotless. They came with a hand towel and bath towel per person, shower gel, shampoo, etc. And the extra bonus was the free wifi in the hotel, which worked perfectly! Room 101(double) and room 103 (twin) were set back slightly from the windows facing the road so you didnt hear much noise at all. Also, the air con in the rooms worked perfectly.
The staff were very accomodating and i would definately stay here again if i ever made it back to Tirana. The hotel also has a good location, being easy to get anywhere. At 40 euros a night, you cant go wrong here! and with only being 20 mins cab ride from the airport, its a perfect location.

Room Tip: Room 101 and room 103 are a good choice.

We paid 50 euros a night for a double room that was perfectly fine -- not luxurious but comfortable, with effective air conditioning and a very acceptable bathroom that offered an easy-to-use shower with plenty of hot water. Breakfast, made to order, was included in the price. Staff were very friendly and eager to help. The location is just a few minutes' walk from all major center-city attractions.

Recommended by a friend I booked through the Internet agency "Outdoor Tirana" for three nights at Hotel Stela. Communication with the hotel worked smoothly and credit card pre-payment through Pay-Pal worked as well. Arriving after midnight to an unknown hotel usually is risky, but my information about late check-in had reach the night staff, and there was no problems to get my room at the second floor. The lack of elevator may be a problem for disabled travelers, but otherwise it is quite OK, as the hotel is just two floors. Location is excellent, only one block from the Skanderbeg place. I especially appreciated the free wireless Internet access at the room and of course the rich breakfast menu (included in the rate). My only warning concerns the tempting nuts, which were placed outside the minibar on a table without any note that they were not a gesture of welcome to the hotel, but a charged part of the minibar sortiment. A small sign about the price would at least have avoided the surprise when you are claimed to have used the minibar.
