“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

It has very nice pool and spa center. Also breakfast was great. I strongly recommend you this hotel. But you shoud know it is located a bit far from city center. Taxi cost from hotel to center is 7 euro. Staff was very polite as well. I didnt expect such a good hotel in Kosovo.

Stayed August 2014

I have recently stayed at Emerald hotel for 5 nights and my overall impression was quite good. The staff is very friendly and professional. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with great beds and lots of pillow choices. Complimentary wifi internet connection functioned very well throughout my stay.
Breakfast offer was very good. For dinner or lunch, I warmly recommend the Top restaurant at the 5th floor. The food is excellent and prices affordable.
Nevertheless, the location leaves much to be desired...It may take 20-25 minutes to reach Prishtina centre at rush hour.

Stayed here for 4 nights during an official trip to Kosovo in February 2013. Excellent services, rooms were very clean and quiet with great amenities. Overall service quality was very good. And the food was fabulous. The only downside is that it is located a bit outside the main city.

Recently I went on a business trip to Pristina in Kosovo and advised by my travel agent to try the new Emerald Hotel which I did.
I was picked up at the airport by a pleasant young man in a comfortable air conditioned van.
On arrival at the hotel I was checked in by a friendly receptionist and offered a glass of mineral water or fresh orange juice. I was escorted to my room facing the rear of the hotel which had pleasant views of the countryside and the new sport area which apparently to open in early June 2013. I was told that the half sized Olympic swimming pool and new tennis court would be available to all guests staying at the hotel and that there would also be a new restaurant and bar. I am looking forward to trying this new area out on my next trip.
All the staff I encounted were very polite and helpful.
The new Shuttle service to the city is great especially as the van is cool and comfortable and times of departure and return from the city fitted my requirements.
The food I had in the top restaurant was excellent. I was told that there was a new Italian Chef there.
I have travelled all over the World on business and can thoroughly recommend this hotel to fellow business travellers.
keep up the good work.

Room Tip: rooms at the rear have a better view.

Stayed at the Emerald fro 2 nights this week. It is a little outside the centre of Pristina but a cab is only about 6 euro and they are easily found. Note that most cabs don't bother wit the meter so agree the rate beforehand.

Biggest issue was that the aircon did not work! my room was 26 celcius and the window would not open - the handle just went round and round. Also the towel rail was falling off the wall. That said, otherwise the room was large and clean and reasonably well appointed.

It is worth noting that no smoking rooms don't seem to exist - my room not only had an ash tray in it but there was a cigarette butt in it - not the best impression.

The restaurant is good and cheap (8 euro for a steak) with excellent food and the local red wine. The terrace would be pleasant except one night was 30th April when it is a local tradition to burn tyres... true! this made being outside unpleasant - but it is only 1 night in the year I am told.

So Emerald, keep doing what you do well but attend to the details please.

Booked by a friend we had no idea what to expect. To our great surpise we found a very spacious and functional hotel slightly outside the city centre but with easy access from the airport. The traffic in Pristina can be challenging to say the least, lots of roads under construction. The room was spacious, business like. Good breakfast with local specialities and very welcoming and helpful check in staff. The only minus is the area which a bit industrial.

Room Tip: rooms with view to the front of the hotel have a nicer view
