Good access to city sites though the city doesn't have too many! Good value restaurants close by along with nice 'street' food. Local people seem friendly and helpful. Hotel breakfast a little disappointing.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Vila Alba and I'm as satisfied this time round as I was the first. The staff is helpful and cheerful, the room is comfortable and clean and any special requests attended to. It's a great place to stay in Tirana.

Central location so easy walking distance to the Block, museum etc. Clean, very comfortable bedroom, lounge and bathroom. Very nice buffet breakfast served on the top floor looking out across the roof tops to the surrounding mountains. Helpful staff even brought me some hot water so I could make my own green tea as room service wasn't available.

We have stayed twice in this nice boutique hotel - the first time for 2 days and the second time for 4 days. Entrance is on a small street. However, area appears to be very safe and quaint. The central location, hotel and staff are all GREAT!!! As I said, we liked the hotel so much that we went back...

Excellent customer service from consistent staff who genuinely want you to enjoy your stay. Clean and well equipped and fantastic city centre location. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Tirana.

Great hotel, excellent staff, centrally located. The staff are full of fun, helpful, polite and courteous. The hotel offers a central location from which you can easily access the city of Tirana. The rooms are well appointed and kept very clean

We spent one night, being allowed to check in early and given great help with some printing we needed. Ideal location (hard to find) very close to the main square which is being redeveloped at the moment so frequent road closures/changes of traffic direction.Clean lovely little hotel with a nice terrace.

We ended up staying six days here, two nights on a tour and four nights because my husband was taken ill and we had to return to Tirana. The staff could not have been more helpful and sorted us rooms at short notice and were generally very considerate. It is a lovely hotel and definitely boosted our spirits when things...

I was in a tour group and would not usually stay in a hotel like this because it was really gutted and modernised inside and I felt just like a 'number'. I cannot fault it for convenience for the centre of Tirana or any comforts. But then I do not go overseas to be given a replica of what I...

Lovely modern Hotel with all the expected services that one would expect in a modern society. I was really surprised how good it was. Breakfast was very good and sufficient to fill you up until lunch time. Pillows were soft and fluffy, the way I like them :)
