I am here on a one-week business trip to Pristina, and selected it on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews. All is as advertised. The room is spacious and has a terrific view. The service is attentive and friendly. The restaurant does a good breakfast (fresh seasonal fruit, cold cuts, cheese, bread, yoghurt, omelettes to order) and its dinners are pretty decent too (peppers stuffed with rice and meat in a tomato sauce are one of the local specialties and very good). The Internet is reliable and fast enough. You can sit out on the top floor terrace and have your dinner there, which is a pleasant alternative on a warm evening. The TV works and has a gazillion channels. The fitness center is adequate, if nothing remarkable. The price (around 75 Euros, or $100, a night) is reasonable. The hotel has an agreement with a local cab company, which will come and pick you up and take you into town or from town to the hotel for only 2 Euros, and the trip takes from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on time of day and where in the city you are going or coming from. The only drawback is the location. By the time I get back to the hotel after a long working day I lack the energy to go out again, so instead of experiencing a bit more of what Pristina has to offer, and checking out some of the local restaurants and bars, I stay in. That is OK, since I have a lot of work to do even in the evenings, but on my next visit I am likely to stay somewhere more centrally located, possibly Afa Residence's sister hotel, the Afa Hotel. You won't want to sleep with the windows open, since the barking dogs are likely to keep you up most of the night, at least until the chickens take over the noisemaking duties in the morning.
