Perfect place to have a dinner with friends or family near to a big fireplace. The food is very good, (mainly meat). The staff is friendly. I like the place also in summer, the internal court with the pool makes it a cool oasis in the hot weather

Nice placed to stay in Tirana on a street with bars and restaurants. Not far to centre and friendly staff. Easy to go to mountains or to the sea with own rent car. Free and safe parking at the hotel. Big rooms and pool.

“Secure off street parking allows you to forget the car and forgo the stressful driving in Tirana. The bus stop is right outside the door and only costs 30 Lek (US 40 cents) per person into town. The buses are new and air conditioned.”
