The hotel was nice,very clean and on a quite good place even if I wouldn't say the sights were "right around the corner" The staff was mainly very polite except when I was checking out,then the man in the reception wanted me to pay 1,50€ for something from the minibar I didn't take. As I had agreed to meet friends...

A great Hotel just behind a street full of pubs and restaurants. 10min walk to town square and museum. Really friendly staff, very clean rooms and bathrooms. You even get soap and shampoo. You get a fantastic breakfast to start your day. I wanted a coffee with hot milk and that's what I got..

If you are looking for the RItz (or Rogner replacement), then forget this place. But, if you are content with a simple, clean and very well located place, then this is possibly your place. The only draw back is the wireless, it switches on and off, at times incredibly slow, this should be sorted out. the breakfast is ok too,...

It's a nice spot very close to the center of Tirana. Clean rooms with mini bar. The service is good and the people are super friendly. Breakfast is very nice and basic. For sure the best spot to stay close to the center and save a bit of money. It's not expensive compared to what you get.

If you want a basic, clean hotel in a perfect Tirana location, then I'd certainly recommend this one. Rooms are spotlessly clean and staff speak excellent English and are very happy to help with all your questions. Hotel is right in Blokku so perfect spot. There's a great little un-named bar at the street by the hotel (not the Irish...

This small hotel in the heart of Tirana is a gem. My room was small, but sufficient for my needs as a solo traveler. The rate, which included a substantial breakfast, was cheep. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful, both in situating me in my room and helping me find a currency exchange and a market. Great stay.

Excellent three star's hotel with spacious rooms, good location close to town center and lots of restaurants quite close. The service was very friendly and the breakfast satisfactory as well. We will stay here again if we visit Tirana once more in the future. I should add that the free wifi worked all the time without problems.

The hotel is an average hotel. However, there is a very serious point in this hotel. Particularly the irresponsible way in which the hotel is dealing with passports. These are stored in the key boxes at reception. Visible for everybody. If there is nobody at the reception (what i have experienced different times) these could be taken away easily. I...

This was my third stay at City Hotel - actually 3rd and 4th, I stayed here twice within a week, as I criss-crossed Albania. This is a favorite because you have the feel of a small, family-run hotel, with the center-of-town location and all the things you need just around you. I've stayed in several of their rooms - this...

I thoroughly enjoyed the time I'd spent at this hotel during the last weekend of June 2015. The hotel itself comprises of 15 rooms with a comparably large breakfast room. The breakfast consisted mainly of different types of cheese, cold meats, eggs (boiled and fried - there were options on offer for scrambled eggs and omelettes), juices, cereals etc. As...
