I have traveled and stayed in Albania many times, and Florian's guesthouse in Shkoder is one of the best places I've stayed in. Florian himself is a wonderful host--very knowledgeable about the city and about travel logistics to other places from Shkoder. The food at the guesthouse is excellent: a real taste of traditional Albanian cuisine.
As others have said, this is more like a home-stay than a B&B. Florian and his family are very friendly and helpful, and will discuss whatever interests you about life in Albania. The mom cooks and the food was vegetarian, fresh from the garden, and delicious. If you have an interest in Albanian culture, history, and family life, Florian's is the place. If you're looking for luxury, look elsewhere. He also made sure we knew what to see and arranged taxis, etc. These were our first nights in Albania so it was reassuring to know Florian was there to point us in the right direction.
It's a good half hour walk from town, but the road actually has very little traffic so using bikes is a possibility.
pretty much everything, food, company, wine, raki, location out of town so quiet, florian is an exceptional host and organised for us to go to Theth, which was also a great guesthouse.
the dog wouldn't let you stroke it.
Florian and his sister are very helpful in all respects. For me in particular, it was helpful that they arranged for a taxi to Podgorica for a price equivalent to the bus that doesn't have a very reliable schedule. They also helped arrange a taxi for me when I was returning to Albania even though I wasn't planning on staying the night in the hostel. In short, if you want people who really want to help and make your stay worthwhile, Florian's is the place.
You stay with the Family. They are all extremely nice and you feel really welcome. I really loved it there and recommend it totally
If you do not like to stay in a room of the family you might not get happy here. Also a little hard to find at night
The Guesthouse is a very nice place with a good atmosphere. It's out of the city and perfect for relaxing and meeting a lot of nice people. Florian, the owner, is a nice and entertaining guy with a lot of funny and serious stories about Albania. His family is awesome. They prepare breakfast and dinner of their homegrown vegetables, which are delicious. If you're interested in visiting Shkodra or nearby places Florian is very helpful with organizing. I recommend you to stay there, for sure!
Florian's guest house is a warm and welcoming house. It's hard to find, so use the booking.com application. But once you are there it is great!
The wifi does not work properly.
It's small and not comfortable, we paid for breakfast but we couldn't take it because the guy was sleeping.
We stayed only one night but Florian proved to be an excellent host. The dinner/breakfast was absolutely superb (specially the dinner was amazing). I also took the laundry service and it was very efficient. I know he also organizes some city tours (I didn't take because I came with my car). Florian also allowed me to park my car inside his house and took out 3 bottles of his own wine production for sampling. Absolutely great place. The place is nothing fancy, but this should be clear before booking here, as it's more about the experience rather than looking for a 5-star hotel. Thanks for all Flo!
The place is a bit far from the city, so without car you need to take taxi (which shouldn't be expensive but they can always cheat tourists). Besides of this, and keeping clear the kind of place this is, all was great.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food. Gorgeous location and a lovely experience.
The guesthouse offered a very good dinner for €4.
The guesthouse is located roughly 5km out of the centre of town and down an isolated, unlit street. I was travelling as a couple but have travelled alone in the past, and would therefore not recommend this place for solo female travellers due to the location; I would have felt uncomfortable making the journey alone. We were given (very old!) bikes to get us into town, but again, I wouldn't have felt too comfortable riding these back at night due to the poorly lit street. Cannot fault the cleanliness of the guesthouse, but the properly is a family home with chickens which does lead to quite an unfortunate smell around the place!
The place is so nice we ended up spending more time in the garden of the guesthouse, than in the city!
Help with arranging transportation and accomodation in Theth and Valbona. Delicious dinners in compnay with other travellers. Good wi-fi.
Florian is very helpful to all guests helping with onward journeys and the like. If you like a bit of a 'home' feeling and a city escape then the location is quite good.
The location is about 5km from the city, which you may or may not like, but the website says 2km. The going rate for a taxi is 500 Lek (3.5euros approx) so factor that into your budget when staying here. Wifi wasn't great in the rooms but was ok in shared areas. Due to the distance self catering is a bit of an issue, some vegeterian food is offered for lunch and dinner but is not included in the price so again, keep that plan in your budget.
I have been traveling Europe for 9 months and i have to say Florian was one of the best place i have stayed! It is very convinently located from the city. Staying in Florian i felt more like i was invited to a Albanian family as a guest and everything was taken care! My room was very confortable with clean bathroom. Florian is the owner of this place and he is always on top on everything. I have never had such good food. Everything was homemade on the table and they also make they own wine! Florian and his family are very Humbling and welcome ppl with smile! I really felt i was treated very special. I recommend this place and will come back to see you guys!
The guesthouse is set on a peaceful and lush suburban plot/farm of a welcoming Albanian family. This is a very special experience which I have never gotten anywhere else - there is nothing fake, you are the family's guest and you get an absolutely genuine Albanian welcome. Mature grapevines grown all around the front yard, providing cool shade in the summer months. Florian's father presses his own wine from these very grapes (and if you ask, he will be willing to sell you a bottle or two). The neighbourhood has open views onto the Albanian Alps, and as you pass, you can see neighbours herding sheep and taking care of gardens. If you want a spa and a 5* hotel bar, this is simply not for you. But, if like me, you want a 100% genuine and relaxed taste of Albania - this is the place to go! Florian puts a lot of heart into running the guesthouse, so he is eager for any feedback or business improvement ideas which you may have and will take it seriously. He also enjoys discussing general topics and learning about countries over a meal and wine. If you ask, he will do his best to help with onward travel advice/plans as he has been working in the Albanian tourism sector for years. The free-to-use bikes are an excellent idea and a huge plus. I highly recommend using them as this is another opportunity to see Albania from the local perspective! Don't be put off by the seemingly messy driving habits. Shkoder is packed with local cyclists, so the drivers, in my experience, always look out for and are nice to bikes. Check out the fortress, the lakeside, the historical old town street and observe the fascinating market on Sheshi Ura e Maxharrit. The location is well away from the centre, but it is not at all hard to find.
Florians hostel is very good and he is a great guy. The place was very clean and everyone there is very friendly and helpfull. I would definantly stay here again. the meals and the wine were amazing + wifi outside is great.
