Edmond and Linda (owners of the hotel) were fantastic!!! The hotel is lovely, clean, and close to everything!!!! The entire staff was exceptional (AAA++++), so very friendly! Their optional tours (we chose Kruja and Durres) were extremely reasonable, pleasant, and fun. What a great weekend in Tirana with friends (All 14 of us). Don't miss Medusa, the Irish Pub (a ten second walk from the hotel lobby); great service, location, and good food.

We visited Albania during Easter 2013 and we both think that this country is amazing! It isn´t a shopping paradise but people are really friendly and the hospitality is overflowing. Some examples; we wanted to visit Dürres and the hotel owner Edmond took us there with his own car. He was really open-minded and he could explain everything we asked about Albania and its people. Then next day we met a taxi driver who took us to several places and we paid after we were already back at the airport. He trusted us and wasn´t stressed at all even he waited payment for two days.
City Hotel Tirana is rated three star hotel but actually the service is on five star level. You can ask almost anything from the reception and they will find a way to make it happen. This hotel is family owned and the atmosphere is like at home. The breakfast is nice and tasty.
We are convinced that Albania will be a desired tourist destination in the coming years!
Wishing You sunny holidays in Albania,
Timo & Jonna

I stayed here one night at the end of a business trip after having spent the first four nights at the Sheraton. This was an excellent choice. The location is fantastic, just a couple blocks from Skenderberg Square, and as others have noted it's set back from the street and so the noise is minimal. The staff were excellent and the breakfast was surprisingly good for such a small hotel that charges so little for its rooms. Free wifi in the rooms, tons of TV channels, everything you need is walkable. If I ever get back to Tirana, I'll absolutely stay here.
