The hotel is located in several historical buildings (300-year) old and has a great character and vibe. The rooms are equipped with antique furniture and details. The view from the window is breathtaking. There is a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The location is on the top of the hill, just near the Old Bazaar and the Fortress. The...

Perfect for weekend trips. The hotel consists of several historical houses that also create privacy for those who travel with kids or close friend groups. The hotel is run by the rooted Gjirokaster family as if it's their own guests. No parking problems at all, perfect location to all historical and touristic events. Very good and representative breakfast!.. I would...

This quaint family run hotel nestled against its Namesake castle is a wonderful stop on the way to Greece. The suite was first class with a loft for travelling families. Room was amazing with loft at reasonable price. The topping on this desert though was the breakfast in the morning with the owner family. Albanian hospitality at its best with...

We are a small group and we are spending the night at hotel Gjirokastra. I would like to say that the hotel is great. Clean, nice, cheap, nice service, good food. I highly recommended. The staff is very helpful, warm hospitality. What else, very close to the centre.

When a family with a warm heart and generous hospitality is on show there is no better experience than this. Rooms were spacious, spotlessly clean and well presented. Breakfast was home-style and plentiful. We had a bag of small laundry items and they were attended to without fuss and retuned in the evening. I'm a retired 5 star hotel general...

Hotels like this and the families that own and operate them is why we travel internationally. Many family members are involved with this hotel and they take pride in making sure your stay is a first rate experience. Since nights get cool in November, while we were settling into our room an extra heavy blanket was delivered to our room...

Booked this hotel due to good reports and was not disappointed... We got free upgraeto suite and the owner was very helpful, from parking car to local tips. The hote family speaks fluently English and Italian. Breakfast was huge and kept in traditional rural style, no choice or menu. A few comments aside... each room has TV but only local...

I stayed here one night at the start of October. I had a spacious, well-appointed and well-prepared room with a very comfortable bed and good shower. The hotel is in the best location; only a couple of minutes away from the surprisingly busy centre and well positioned for walking up to the castle. All of the hotel's family-based team made...

Firstly we must say that the hotel and rooms are exquisite. We booked a suite room and it was immaculate and full of character. Everywhere is very clean and the rooms beautifully presented. The English speaking members of the family were not there all the time so it was difficult to seek advice during their absence. Our biggest disappointment was...
