Hotel AFA Residence
Ranked #8 of 27 Hotels in Pristina
Reviewed 30 July 2013

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.

Wonderful staff, very helpful before we even arrived at the hotel. Beautiful room with 180 degrees view. Coming from Switzerland, we felt home right away. There is nothing we could wish for more and we wish them a lot of success! Thank you very much

Afa Residence is the perfect alternative place to stay in Pristhina if you want to flee from the sounds of the city. Manager Mr. Mehija does everything to let you have a pleasant stay. He and his staff all speak English, so don't worry that you will not find your way. The hotel has arrangements with the biggest Taxi Company in the city, Roberti. They bring you to and from everywhere in the city for € 2 (Rate 2013, Price can change). Rooms are large and clean, breakfast is varied and extensive and the cook loves to make you an omelet. A nice swimming pool is situated in the basement, along with a gym. Mr. Mehija gladly helps you with planning your day trips.

Great terrace to relax.
Rooms clean and big with great views.
Staff is great
Restaurant and breakfast very good too!
Highly recommended!

Excellent boutique hotel, with really professional staff on hand to attend to every need. I will return to stay again just to get away from the city bustle, and to enjoy a beautiful mountain view from the room.

A private run, Kosovan patriotic hotel, 10 minutes drive from Pristina central which avoids the hustle and bustle of the centre. It's on an idyllic setting amongst local hills and with local arrangements with taxis that you can get to the city for only 2 euros. They will also pick you up from the airport if you contact ahead. The rooms are great with a TV. All the staff are superb, speak English and the young owner was born to manage. The restaurant is of excellent quality offering a varied local menu. For a traveller who loves local customs mixed with 5* service, you would struggle to match throughout the world. I take my hat off to this establishment but book in advance as minimal rooms and the secret of how great a place this is, is already out.

Hello everyone ...
I want to recommend this wonderful hotel.
Although I have been there just for a short time, yet, I so enjoyed it, that next time I will definitely go back there.
The service was excellent and quality. all the service provider that I met during the visit was really kind and nice to me.
The hotel located at very short distance from the center of the city (taxi costs 2 euro - do not pay more!).
My room was really nice and pleasant and there is an excellent hotel facility such as a sauna and a pool.
The hotel seems to look very new (the way there is not quite ready, but that's okay, because you get there in the car).
There is a service (by appointment) of a free airport pick-up and in the way Back to the airport, you can take a taxi (15 euro)
In short, I really enjoyed it and I hope you will too...
