This is a gorgeous hotel in the old Ottoman style. The family running the hotel are kind, attentive and almost like family: they indeed helped me find some family! The food was wonderful! Best in the country! Stay here. We will go back soon!
El hotel está situado en el centro de la parte antigua de Girokastra por lo que es ideal para conocer la ciudad. Es un hotel familiar en una casa tradicional reformada. El trato bueno, el hijo habla inglés y el desayuno abundante y delicioso ( no pudimos acabarlo!). Centrally located in the old town of gjirokastra , it is ideal to get to know thesorroundings. It is a family-owned hotel in a recently renovated trational house. Although the staff doesn't speak English ( only the son of the family speaks good English) , they really tried to make us feel confortable. Breakfast was profuse and delicious.
Perfect located next to all interesting points of the town. Nice architecture, quiet neighborhood, good local taste breakfast, friendly staff.
I had a big problem reaching the hotel by car because the automatic routing function linked to the confirmation email and apparently using Google maps sent me via a terrible stone paved road which after 1 km was closed due to works and I practically had no turning possibility. Take the first Road to the old city when entering from the south and there will be no problem. This is however not a problem of the hotel as such.
great location lovely building ... old with modern facilities helpful staff
Great location, beautiful room and great typical breakfast.
Situated in the middle of the old city.Excellent local food in the restaurant.
Location Bed Breakfast Service
WiFi connection not that good
Right at the foot of the castle, this is by far one of the best located hotels in Gjirokastra. Friendly staff and cosy rooms.
WiFi signal could be a bit better.
as if you sleep in a museum - excellently renovated, clean, with a nice view and close to the city center and fortress, incl. a nice breakfast on the hotel terrace; in short: the best hotel/B&B of our 14 day tour through the Balkan states
The Hotel Gjirokastra is located in a beautifully restored traditional house at the foot of the castle. We had a beautiful room. We could discover the city easily by foot from the hotel.
The room was charming, if spare. Home cooking (by the mama) was fantastic -- traditional Albanian food. Location, right below the castle, was great.
No WiFi in our room, although it caused us to hang out on the patio with other travelers.
Great family-run hotel. Very clean. Extremely tasty breakfast.
The Suite is amazing, a typical albanian house. The room were the make the Suite is traditionnaly reserved to young couple. Its decoration is amazing
bed was creaking too much and was no shutter that it didn't help for sleeping.
This is an amazing hotel in an amazing town. If your visiting Albania I would highly recommend a trip to Gjirokastra and would recommend booking this hotel. It's in the perfect location up in the old town where the beautiful little streets and houses are with stunning views of the castle and mountains. It's a short 10min walk to the castle from the hotel. The room was clean and spacious, the food excellent and service outstanding.
Perfect location at the old town, near Castle Gjirokastra and Ethnographic museum. Friendly and helpful staff (family). Special breakfast. Easy to park. Beautiful traditional interior and very clean.
There's nothing to stress
Very friendly reception, nicely decorated room, good meal at a good price and the perfect location for an after dinner walk through the hilltop town
Very steep approach of the hotel, I suppose not everyone handles an excellent 'hill start' on slippery cobble stones, especially with a motorbike, but on the other side, driving in Albania is Adventure ;-)
Very good location and helpful staff. The breakfast was great, especially the youghurt with honey. Nice balcony with view of the old town.
One of the two double rooms had a really small toilet, it was not so easy to tale a shower. The price for this room should have been lower than for the other, which was instead much more comfortable.
The location at the top of the town provides panoramic views over the town to the plains and the moonlike bare rocks of the mountain ranges. Spectacular. A guided tour of the traditional Spenduli tower house by Mr Spenduli was a great treat and a fascinating insight into to land/home snatches made by the Hoxta regime.
Its really worth a visit but Its a hot climb up the hill in August!
A terrific location, right below the castle in Gjirocastra. A very comfortable guest house, with many traditional Albanian touches, run by friendly people who do their best to make guests feel welcome. There is a good and economical restaurant, that is highly recommended.
The down side of the otherwise great location just below the castle is that there some challenging streets to navigate on your way to the hotel, if you are driving in. Once you arrive, however, parking is quite easy.
Gjirokaster is one of the highlight of albanian trip and this Hotel can be part of it. Very nice atmosphere is there, you acutually living in the old traditional house and also location is great. Breakfest was perfect and im still thinking about that herbal tea which they pick themselves and that was one of the best breakfest during whole albanian trip.
This is a beautiful hotel in a perfect location. The family who run it are extremely warm and welcoming in a very unassuming way. The home-cooked food is absolutely delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel.
Nice location at the old town.
- Warm friendly personnel - Good traditional breakfast - Authentic rooms
Location - close to all attractions, parking outside the hotel, small restaurant on site, breakfast was cooked by the owner's mother and was delicious traditional fare.
We had booked a room with balcony and were initially disappointed to find that the room was already filled and we were moved to a newer style room off the side of the hotel - no view although the room itself was fairly comfortable. Mattress wasn't great.
New, clean, everything works, friendly staff even if they do not speak any English! Good location, easy to park. Good wifi
Not easy to find. No curtain/screen on shower- not a fan of " wet rooms"!
