“Perfectly acceptable hotel with two busy bars”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Great little hotel with very friendly and attentive staff, the girls on reception were lovely.

The hotel has two bars that are very popular with the local 20 somethings. A very large roof terrace bar offering views of the city and a mezzanine bar on the first floor - which was more of a coffee shop for locals (It has access directly from the street up some external stairs that bypassed reception). The prices were similar to that of other local restaurants and bars with a draught 0.5l beer setting you back less than a pound and a 1/3 bottle of wine/caraffe with nibbles about £1.50. Both bars get extremely busy if there are big European football games on (but that is the same throughout the city and there is no hiding from it if it is not your thing).

Very comfortable rooms very much in the style of the large corporate chains. The reception for a lot of the TV channels was a bit hit and miss though. The bathroom set out was a bit wierd with a glass shower screen that I had to move to get into the bath because of the way it was fitted. The shower also leaked onto the floor no matter what I did, but nothing I'll lose any sleep over.

I didn't make it for breakfast, but the food I saw served elsewhere looked very palatable.

I was in the city for business and i stayed at this hotel,the hotel was nice ,the reception girl was very nice and welcoming and she spoke Greek very well .the room that she suggested was very good and clean and comfortable.She even helped me with some work outside the hotel which was very important for me, she was always smiling . She made my stay very pleasant . The overall stay in the hotel was good the only thing was that they don't have a porter to help with the luggage. when I left I had a delicate bag to carry and I needed help and there was no porter . The other girl at the reception who spoke a very good English had to help me.

From the moment we walked into the hotel to the minute we left the staff couldn’t have done anymore to make our stay perfect. The free pick up from the airport was appreciated and went very smoothly. Endrit on reception made us feel most welcome taking us to our room to make sure we were happy with it. I had several questions about Tirana and travelling to our next destination which Endrit helped me with, giving me options and advise. During our two day stay the other staff maintained this high level of service and made us feel very comfortable and at home. The roof top pool and bar was lovely, it was great to cool off in the pool after a day walking round Tirana. We ate both evenings of our stay at the roof terrace bar because the food, service and ambience were so good. Although the hotel restaurant is on the ground floor the manager arranged for a table to be set and served by restaurant staff on the roof for us, with a full choice of the restaurant menu. Our room was pleasant, quiet and clean. Although the hotel is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from Skanderbeg Square it is still central and the cheap hotel taxis are readily available. The hotel arranged for a taxi to take us to our next destination, Kruje over 20 miles and an hour away, which was logistically our best option, and for $20 we were very satisfied. Hotel Mondial was the best introduction to Albania we could have had.

A very friendly and small hotel in the center of Tirana. Large beds, toilets ok, aircondition and a small balcony what was waiting for me. Very, very friendly reception and staff. Good in English, far better than I had expected. Restaurant with attentive and friendly servants and good food - so surely to recommmend!

A good base to explore Tirana, even if it is a little bit of a walk from the city centre.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the food good, and the beer splendid.
Nice to have a wi-fi advertised that actually works.

Room Tip: Tirana is noisy, crossing the road could be classed as a dangerous sport, take a torch with you at n...
