“Good location great breakfast buffet”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The location is very central and close to all of the important sights. The rooftop restaurant / bar has a phenomenal breakfast buffet with a large variety of standard continental and more traditional Albanian offerings. The price is a bit high compared to most of the other places we stayed but it was definitely a nice hotel.

Since the booking the hotel gave promptly their feed-back to our requests in a very cordial way. The hotel is very clean, very well managed and with a nice breackfast on a terrace on top of the building. The extraordinary kind personnel was able to take care of each wishes we had during our staying. I recommend it to whoever wants to go to Tirana. Fabio Drago

Alba, meaning the sunrise, is a perfect name for this boutique hotel in downtown Tirana. In a small street, just off vibrant Toptani ‎place, you would not expect what you get: what an island of warmth and friendly atmosphere!

The hotel is brand new, well designed and, different from what you frequently get in this part of the world, the owner also insisted on getting the details nice and well done. Service is very customer oriented and speaks perfect English: they are dedicated to look after your needs. The place is very tidy and well kept. Breakfast at the roof top terrace overseeing the town and offering nearby mountain view is an absolute must. For business and leisure alike: I'd recommend Vila Alba to any traveller going to Tirana. Excellent value for money!

Except for being located in the very city centre of Tirana, the Hotel Vila Alba offers comfortable and clean rooms and meeting/conference rooms. The view from the top terrace is directly at the Dajti mountain which jealously surrounds Tirana. As for the hotel staff, they are all more than amiable and hospitable and always at your service! I really loved being there and enjoyed every minute of my presence in the hotel!
