I just stayed 1 week in Hotel The First and had a very pleasant experience. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Their fastfood resraurant is great and serves delicious home made food. Their roof top bar has a fantastic view over the mountains and the city. A great experience.

As we arrived late to Gjirokastra, we have spend the night in Hotel The First. Taxi drivers claimed that Tourist Groups are staying in this hotel. Skip this hotel, if you can. There should be some other hotels in this wonderful town.
