MonarC Hotel
Ranked #11 of 95 Hotels in Tirana
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 2013

The Monarc hotel is a perfect example that great things sometimes come in small packages. The hotel is not the biggest hotel in the city, but offers just as much as any of the high rise 5 stars. The hotel is located in an ideal location a 5 minute walk from the main square and also 5 minutes walk from THE place to be in Tirana, the Block with all its eclectic bars, cafes and clubs. Also a great outdoor restaurant, the 1st of May is directly next to the hotel. The rooms are modern, very clean and provide all amenities to make for a comfortable stay. I particularly like the antique shutters which help preserve the hotels historical look. But the highlight (and the reason I booked) was the hotel bar, which is located on the fourth floor and overlooks a bustling developing cityscape. Perfect place for business meetings or romancing your love. See my pictures for more details.

I was on a business trip on Tirana and I found MonarC as the best business hotel. They offered their meeting room and i could organise my meeting there so I had everything inside. The bar has a great view and the restaurant which has Mediterranean cuisine. I am impressed from the quality of service and lovely staff.
It is really a small hotel but the service is incomparable. They made me feel like I was in my home.
Definitely I will came at your hotel again.

Hotel MonarC is very centrally located in a nice building, specifically designed as a hotel. The rooms are large and well-appointed. The staff are very helpful and the management takes every of every wish. One of the best business hotels I ever stayed in. Highly recommended and with the best value..

Lovely small hotel! The service is excellent and the price is more than reasonable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, right to the center of the Tirana. The food is superb too. Should eat there, especially breakfast. The hotel, the rooms and everything else is so clean. You will have a beautiful view of the capital if you have a coffee at the Bar (it's a terrace).
Really enjoyed staying there!

Very friendly staff, very good service, the room is in a very high standard, very clean and nice. The location is very good. The food in the restaurant is superb! Eat dinner there!!!

The staff at the reception is okey, not good and not bad. The only one there was a man, he was very service-oriented who really liked to help, the other one there two womens, they was not helpful at all.

Only one minus: the hotell had a taxi driver who took 4500 LEK from us and the hotell manager did not do anything about that, we didn´t even get a sorry, or our money back. So when you take a taxi order one by your self. Don´t take a taxi with the driver "Landi" if you don´t want to as good as be robbed.

I stayed at the MonarC Hotel for two weeks in September 2009. It has only been open for a couple months, which is obvious once you see it; the hotel is beautiful inside and out.

My room contained a large contemporary bed, a desk area (with a DSL port and cable), a fridge much larger than average, and a two-sided built in wardrobe. The bathroom is adequately sized with modern fixtures and a rain showerhead.

The MonarC is only a few minutes walk from the center of Tirana. The staff are incredibly friendly and accomodating. A European-style breakfast is included and served in the restaurant each morning (think assorted cold cuts, cereal, yogurt, croissant, fruit, etc.) The restaurant has a diverse menu and wine list (with an obvious Italian influence like the rest of the city). My favorite part of the hotel was the rooftop bar/cafe area, which is absolutely beautiful and overlooks a small park. It was great to relax outside and have an espresso.

Potential downsides? The hotel is located at a very busy intersection. Traffic lights are often out, so you'll hear a lot of beeping and passing cars. Every once in awhile a nearby club has karaoke nights, which seem to go until after 0100.

I loved the MonarC and highly recommend it. If I return to Tirana I will stay here again.
