8.0 Excellent
Pros: This was a lovely hotel right in the middle of Gjirokaster and a short walk to all attractions. The room was lovely, very aesthetically decorated with a large bathroom and it was all very clean. The breakfast was amazing - each morning we got given coffee, mountain tea and pomegranate juice, some Albanian pancakes (with delicious cherry honey jam), fresh fruit, fried eggs and toast, and cheese. The hotel was super close, right near to the main attractions in Gjirokaster - only a short 2 minute walk to the main area, and maybe 10 minutes walk to the fortress. It was a lovely hotel and we would definitely stay here again!
Cons: The wifi did not work well in the room. Also, if you arrive from the bus station, CATCH A TAXI to the hotel. We did not, and the short 2km walk to the hotel was mostly up an extremely steep hill and we almost died - catch a taxi, you'll thank us.
