    Gjirokastra stands as an enchanting and historically rich destination deserving of exploration. If you seek an unparalleled and genuine Albanian adventure, Gjirokastra emerges as the ideal destination to embark upon. Cheap hotels and cheap food prices

    Only had time to visit the castle. Spent several hours there. Would love to come back for the folk arts festival and visit some of the houses with the specific architecture that put this place on the UNESCO list.

    The city is pretty but unfortunately the vast majority of it...

    The city is pretty but unfortunately the vast majority of it is rundown with only the bazaar and some houses being maintained to a level fit for a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and once you go away from the bazaar especially at night it feels really lonely and sad. Gjirokaster has become very touristic in the past few years with the old bazaar being constantly crowded with youths from Western European countries who do not respect the place and openly smoke hashish and get drunk. The road to get to the old town is a traditional stone path that while beautiful is a disaster because it destroys your car's suspension, has very steep grades and if another car comes from the other direction good luck! Because of this and the lack of parking in the old town (even among hotels that advertise having parking) you become a prisoner of the old town. During the summer because of the type of stone the city is built of (also found in the mountain Gjirokaster is built on) it is very hot even during the night making the entire experience very unpleasant. Most museums/attractions are basic and the few English descriptions that can be found are very nationally charged which reminds me more of the rhetoric of the 1940s than 2023. The vast majority of Albanians, even those who work in this "tourism industry" cannot speak English at all or speak it very badly making communication difficult and moreover they are not really friendly with tourists. Gjirokaster like Albania in general is about as expensive as Greece or even Italy while effectively offering a touristic product akin to a 3rd world country. Unless corruption is rooted out, Albanians stop emigrating and the economy and democratic institutions develop I frankly do not think I will ever visit Gjirokaster again.

    When in Albania, Gjirokaster should definitely be on your list. The views from the castle are amazing and a visit to the Bazaar for those Instagram pictures is also a must. But what we enjoyed the most was the travel between Berat and Gjirokaster. Make sure to stop at Tepelene to fill your water bottles with some fresh water and try some deliciously baked fresh trout. Find a small road next to the river, drive in and get yourself wet in the pristine clear water.

    a magic city full of wonder and majesty Amazing views from the historic castile Incredible architecture - like nothing seen before Whilst the bazaar is somewhat touristy - there are lots of lovely restaurants and bars, and the odd authentic shop to keep everyone happy. Don't dismiss going down into the new town too

    Hotel Kalemi 2 is the definition of albanian hospitality. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is delicious. Here's the most important point: one of us had broken his foot just before arriving, and Francesca went out of her way for us, and made sure everything was adapted for us. The food at breakfast was prepared with love and brought to my friend's room. Francesca and another person of staff helped my friend walk to the car. This is exceptional and for that, I highly recommend this hotel. Thank you !

    Maradona, the host, is the most welcoming host. He drove us to and from the old town, provided the best service. It really made our trip to Gjirokaster memorable. We had our own car that we rent, but Maradona insisted on bringing us to the old town and pick us up too. We had dinner at his hotel one night. Great dinner and ended up laying €13 for two people. Outstanding hospitality, perfectly clean room. If you visit Gjirokaster, we would recommend staying here for sure.

    This is a great little apartment for one or a two night stay. Apartment was really clean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was all homemade and plentiful. Walking distance to see the sights of Gjirokaster and where the buses pick up and drop off. Yes you do have to walk up the big hill to the Old Town and Castle but it really is not that bad. Owners were lovely and friendly, even if they didn't speak little or no English. Highly recommend this apartment.

Irvin at the reception was exceptional and gave us a great tour of the hotel, with explanation of the city's main sites visible from the balcony on top of the hotel, as well as serving us a lovely tea which was soothing after my drive coming from Berat (passed through a rainy storm!). Hotel Kalemi definetly won on the list of nicest hotels I ever went to.

But most of all we loved the hostess and mamma of the house, Tatiana. She was so kind and sweet and did everything to make our stay a good experience.

The hotel is managed by a family which takes very well care of their guests. we had a lovely dinner, tasty and better than in the most restaurants . we would therefore recommend the hotel to all.

    Lovely little boutique hotel right in central Gjirokaster. We chose not to stay in the old town due to a need for parking, so it was a bit of a hike uphill to the old town, but it's a lovely walk for fit people. The hotel was quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was served in a private room of their main restaurant/bar and it was delicious and plentiful!
