Hotel AFA Residence
Ranked #10 of 30 Hotels in Pristina
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is an excellent hotel, or rather: Residence. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious, large widescreen TV with many stations, fast Internet, great fitness and swimming pool downstairs, good restaurant and first of all: very helpful staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home.
The only downside is that it is located far from the centre of town. There is an arrangement with a taxi company who take you to and from the centre for only EUR 2, but if you have several meetings per day in town it is a bit inconvenient. If not for the location, I would have rated the hotel 'excellent'.
This location however also has an advantage if you do not have to work in the centre: the air near the hotel is much cleaner than in the centre.

Room Tip: I took the luxury room: large and comfortable.

This was my first trip to Pristina and the amount allotted to me by my company was $112/night for lodging. I shopped around quote a bit at other hotels in the area, but when I emailed here and enquirered if I could get a room for this price and I was informed that not only could I get a room, but included would be breakfast, internet, laundry, dinner, mini-bar, internet and premium cable TV. I thought there must be a catch, but I went for it anyway. I arrived to a beautiful hotel, spacious rooms, great views. Others here have complained about the location just outside the city, but I found this to be another plus...clean (at least cleaner) air, no noise, beautiful views, and the taxi ride is just 2 euro to any where in town and it just takes a few minutes.......best of both worlds. I went down to dinner that night and Tony, the exceptional waiter, suggested the steak with mushroom sauce which was delicious. Most nights on my trip I ate here, each night something different and it was always great. Toward the end of the week I stopped ordering my own food and Tony would just bring me something special that he and the chef made up, paired with drinks and dessert. Breakfasts were the same outstanding quality. Reyja (sp?) is the main guy at the front desk and he was also outstanding. Ready and willing to help with anything big or small to make your stay perfect. With people and facilities like this, there is no better place to stay in Pristina.

Room Tip: My room was 201 at the back of the hotel.....a bit smaller than my friend's room (204) but very...

Great effort is being applied by the management and staff of this hotel to make sure that it is a success. The welcome and service afforded to us was wonderful and the front of house manager was especially efficient and professional.

The hotel is a bit out of the centre which is its drawback but it does ensure cleaner air and there is a €2 deal that the hotel operates with a taxi company.

The gym is adequate for the size of the property but the pool is relatively small. We had a suite which was large as regards the room and sitting/kitchen area but had a really small bathroom.

The hotel is probably a five star more by its amenities than its granduer as the finish can be poor in areas but really all can be forgiven for the service and value for money. If you don't need to be in the centre its a really good option and I heard no complaints from any guest while we were there. The view is magnificant and there is a summer roof terrace. Breakfast was the usual hotel standard with chef on hand and while we were there the restaurant was smoke free which is a very welcome relief in Kosovo.

The Hotel is located above Pristina: spectacular view, silence, fresh and clean air, yet a real oasis. There is an agreement with a taxi-enterprise in order to easily take you from and to the hotel for little cost. There is everything you might wish: Pool, Massage-Chair, Sauna, fitness-center. Roomes are clean and nicely furnished. Meals are prepared carefully. The owner and staff are doing the utmost to meet your wishes. Customer satisfaction comes first and everything is done in order to give a feeling like at home for the guest. Even small extra-wishes are treated with a maximum of dedication.
Talking to the owners and/ or staff is a first opportunity to get to know the specials of this country. At every time you feel welcome and "at home"!
