The Rooms Hotel & Residence

Reviewed October 11, 2013

We booked this for a weekend break due to the great reviews on TA - we had no problem finding the place and it's in a nice area, very near to the park and lots of bars/restaurants. We checked in and were shown to our room (dependence) which was not in the main part of the hotel but down the lift and around the corner. Not a problem really, though it's worth nothing that it's not a 'hotel' as much as you might think. This room was a suite/apartment with contemporary furniture.
We were pleased with it to begin with but unfortunately were woken up the next morning at about 8.00 by tradesmen in the hallway who were busy painting and talking while they worked. Not ideal on a Saturday and we didn't want a repeat on the Sunday so we asked if we could be moved. They were very nice and apologetic and did arrange for us to move rooms (into the main part of the 'hotel'). Our next room was fine - much smaller but well-finished and comfortable.
My other complaint is with the app that they use for the tv - it didn't work in either room we stayed in (and we use the app at home with no problems so it's not that) and there was no normal tv option so a bit silly really. If you're going to go hi-tech, you need to make sure that it works!
The breakfast was nice (again not in the main building) and the staff were very polite and helpful.

Room Tip: Avoid the dependence rooms until the works are finished (Oct 13)

Stayed four nights in Tirana last week, and found The Rooms on the net. Small, but great design hotel with a perfect location close to attractions, restaurants and bars. Splendid service from Ll staff, but the front office guy Ergis was outstanding, he even took us for sightseeing two days in a row. We visited a few of the other international hotels, but please stay away and book your next room in The Rooms, with Ipad in each room, laptop in the suites and great staff all over!

It is hard to imagine a more exciting and fascinating place to stay - anywhere in the region. From the pick-up at the airport to checking in, being introduced to the room, and through to the breakfast experience, everything could not have been done in a friendlier way. This is a hotel not to be missed - simply stay here. Very high standard of finish and comfort. Well stocked minibar.

The hotel and the rooms are designed perfectly.
It is very confortable.
Although it is a little hard to find the enterance, once you find it, it is actually very close to city center.
The only shortcoming is the absence of in-room dining service.

I cannot say enough about how great this place is! For us, it proved to be a bit difficult to find - but I think that was more a reflection of my GPS programming skills than anything else. The room we had was ultra-modern and completely blew away my stereotypical images of Albania. It was very handy to downtown and the park. The included breakfast at the adjacent restaurant was excellent! If Trip Advisor would allow, I would give The-Rooms a "7".

This hotel is an amazing Scandinavian-like oasis of calm in the middle of Tirana. It is small, only seven rooms. I stayed in two different rooms, one at the start of my trip and one at the end. Both rooms were stylishly laid out. Big modern bathrooms with a walk-in shower. Large comfortable beds. The ipad in each room is a nice touch.

The staff are helpful and friendly. It is a bonus having two hours' assess to the adjourning spa and fitness center. The center is of a top notch standard, with a big swimming pool, various hot pools and a sauna.

Location-wise the Rooms is in the center of Tirana, with many restaurants and cafes close by.

If you come to Tirana, this is the place to stay. Great value for money.

Room Tip: Any of them!!!

It was bliss to arrive at The Rooms Hotel after 2 weeks of travelling round Albania in hot, dusty buses and minibuses. The rooms are equipped with all mod cons including iPad from which TV in various languages can be accessed on the larger screen. The high tech system operates the lighting, blinds and air-conditioning. Fast wifi connection. Lovely clean bathroom and wet room with a wonderful shower. The wellness centre is fabulous and not only has the usual sauna, pool but also hydrotherapy area, outdoor plunge pool and a variety of other relaxing areas to try and 2 hours are included in the hotel price. Excellent breakfast buffet with eggs if desired but also cereal, bread, cheese, ham, croissants, chocolate brownies, fruit, yogurt and fig, cherry and plum jams. fresh juice and beautiful coffee. In the same complex there are excellent cafes and restaurants.Seamless transfer to airport.
