“THE SPIRIT OF GURU & WALTZ”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

If you go to Tirana for business or pleasure don't look anywhere else, go straight to Vila Alba,
Vila Alba
Rr. Xhorxhi Martini, Nr. 10
Tirana
Albania,
you are going to be treated like family.
We stayed there for a few days during one International conference and the place was decorated with elegance, you could feel the welcome spirit everywhere. The rooms were clean and very comfortable.
This is a boutique hotel where the staff is always willing to assist you with all your needs and they make you feel like you are a VIP but also like family member.
The Manager, Lady Jonida who is also co owner, takes the time to talk to all the guests and makes sure that you have everything you need or want. The manager, Jonida, is there for you and she will go the extra mile to assure you are comfortable, have a great experience with their Italian food and their sweets , and if you take the time to visit with her she will make you feel at home with her spiritual power you can talk about Yoga, India and a lot of Vienna spirit too .
The guards are very respectful, corteous and they will show you why Albania is the best place to travel if you want to feel at home away from home.
I will recommend this small hotel to anyone who enjoys being treated like "the most important person in the room"
This is our second stay at this hotel in less than a year and we will go back again and again!
Thank you for a wonderful hospitality !

We stayed in Hotel Vila Alba just for two nights during our trip to Tirana. This property is situated in the city centre. We stayed in apartment room with one bedroom and one living room.
Room was clean and quite. Breakfast was served in summer terrace on the top, selection of food sufficient. I can reccomend hotel to everyone who can spend few days in uncredible city Tirana - you are expecting something but the city exceed all our expactations!!

I was a guest of the Tirana International Film Festival 2013, and needed both the efficiency of an internationally serviced hotel suite, and the intimate charm of a small Southern European hotel which would allow me to relax during a very hectic work schedule. Presenting movies is manic and nerve wracking to say the least.
The Vila Alba scored on all fronts: the welcome was very friendly; the room impeccable - it included a balcony; the shower powerful and efficient; and the roof terrace buffet breakfast perfect - the waiter in charge spoke fluent English,and the owners who took their breakfast there was engaging and thoughtful.
I could not have asked for a better temporary HQ to explore the delights that Tirana has to offer. I will make the Vila Alba my port of call in future visits and would recommend it to everyone.
