Have been here for a business trip, stayed 1 night in Deluxe Room. I was surprised to read negative comments on staying in Xheko Hotel. Maybe standard room is not the best option of the hotel, I don't know. Deluxe room is amazing, it's so comfortable, awesome, even luxurious. The room is furnished with a splendid bath separated by a glass wall - very unusual and cool. Lightening is generously installed throughout the room and bathroom. Bath amenities are good, however they lack cotton pads and sticks, neither conditioner after shampooing is offered. The quality of towels and bathrobes is super. Everything is cozy and comfortable. The mini bar has a good choice of beverages and snacks.The only thing is that the fireplace doesn't work due to lack of some equipment.
I was grateful to Elena, Senior manager of the Front desk. I made mistake in stay dates. She helped me to regulate this with booking.com and no penalties from the hotel were charged, very kind of the hotel indeed! The staff in the whole of the hotel is attentive and helpful. A cozy bar at the reception floor level, a terrace at the 4th floor with a view of the city from above, a great restaurant. The hotel is greatly located, neigbouring plenty of bars and restaurants.
2 minute details to improve:
1) no WiFi at the 2nd floor (strong WiFi at the Reception floor);
2) breakfast might be better assorted and some hot porridge, fresh juices, bakery can be added.
But in general - super!

Room Tip: Choose Deluxe Rooms; sure that at late spring and summer the terrace will be open offering splendid view and atmosphere.

WORST place to stay. No ventilation in any room, in fact no Window concept at all in the entire hotel. Once you are inside the room you feel suffocated & like being trapped in a CAGE.

People are being looped by brilliant publicity / marketing through web to attract customers. They would always tell you that rooms are not available and hotel is full; if you are making booking online or calling them for best rate but once you arrive their; you would find the entire hotel is vacant and available. As there is no business, they are literally over charging & looting the guests visiting them or getting trapped in their loop.

Room Tip: "Rooms on the south

The impression of this hotel has definitely contributed to the positive impression of my stay!
Awesome suite room with jacuzzi batch cost less than mediocre 3-4* hotels in East EU countries. Very nicely furnished and with peculiar ligting.
Firendly and helpful staff. TV channels selection, as well as the breakfast selection could be imporved. However at breakfast omelet (and possibly something else) can be cooked on the spot. Home-made yoghurt and local marmelades have conquered me.
Great for business travellers, central locations.
Hotel taxi is a bit impresice and costly thought.

Stayed here on a recent business trip to Tirana and had a very enjoyable stay.
Location was central - everything was within walking distance including small supermarket on the next block.
Room was very clean and staff were friendly and helpful.
Some collagues who were staying at the Sheraton walked over to Xheko for breakfast every morning.
The rooftop restaurant served a variety of different dishes - something for everyone

I have been a regular traveller to Albania for business for the past few years.and have travelled throughoutthe country. As a North American businessperson who does a lot of business travel in Europe, I have been to many hotels. I must state, unequivocally and with no doubt, that the absolute best rooms I have ever stayed in are at the Xheko Imperial (formerly known as The President Hotel). There are two categories of rooms at the hotel. The lower end rooms are incredibly clean, comfortable, small but well appointed. The higher end rooms are nothing short of absolutely spectacular. The best furnishings, art, bathrooms, fixtures, that you will find anywhere in the world. Absolutely 5-star. The food on the rooftop deck is incredible - the best food anywhere in Albania and the setting on the roof top deck (Spring/Summer/Fall) is magical. If you are going to Albania for pleasure or business, this is absolutely THE hotel to stay at. World class (and growing - more rooms are being added now to meet with growing demand).
