Whenever Im in Tirana, I'm at Gjeli's (The Roosters Inn), it is simply amazing - very nice staff, great mixture of luxury and traditional albanian style and the food,... ah the food... Best best best...

I spend a lot of time in Albania for both business and pleasure, I only wish I would have found this hotel on my first trip. Bujtina e Gjelit is the perfect mix if you are looking at balancing luxury with a splash of Albanian tradition and culture. This is a family hotel built by hand with every little detail considered creating a unique feel throughout. The rooms are beautiful with huge comfy beds and mini balconies. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the food is exquisite, all locally sourced or grown on the hotels private farm. Walking around the hotel you will find a number of surprises including a range of animals and even tortoises ambling past as you have breakfast. You really would not think you are in the centre of a big city. Cannot recommend enough!

Stayed here for the last days of my 14-day Albanian tour and this was definitively the most compliant to western Europe standards. The hotel itself is a charming Ottoman style house with a high quality restaurant and swimming pool. The Rr Don Bosco is a lively small street with lots of shops and small markets, cafes and fast food. The hotel is a bit hard to detect from the street, because of the brick wall surrounding it but it also gives it good cover from the street noise.

Rooms are cleaned daily and they are quite large and beds are good. The bathrooms are of good size too and they have a tub and a shower, which worked ok. Like in most of the places the TV didn't actually work very well and the channel palette didn't really offer anything, but TV is usually irrelevant. You can hear some noise from the inner yard in the evenings, especially if there are some performers at the restaurant. But it lasts only until midnight at most. The free WiFi didn't work very well in the room but was good by the pool side.

The pool is quite small, but deep enough and with a kind of children's side. It was cleaned daily. Overall the place was tidy. A curious addition to the place were the ducks and chickens in their pen on the small front yard and the tortoises by the pool. The building was in good condition, but especially the small front yard the facade could use some touching up.

The price range was well below western Europe but more expensive than many hotels in Tirana. The restaurant was surprisingly good, but a bit expensive. The live folk music at the restaurant on some evenings was nice, though it could be a bit annoying if have an early morning the next day. This is a quality hotel with very good service, surroundings and location.

A great hotel. I stayed here for a weekend with wife and friends. Been visiting Tirana very often and know it's noise, but at Bujtina e Gjelit you don't have the feeling you are in Tirana, it's more like you are somewhere in Theth or Valbona, it is so quite and relaxing.
The staff was very lovely, very nice and polite, they were as courteous as the owners. The food, rakia and wine are incredible tasty and delicious. It is a very clean and neat place. Free wi-fi, very clean Pool.
I would recommend this place to y'all planning to visit the most lovely and welcoming country/nation on Earth, ALBANIA.
