This hotel was a small but very nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The room’s were clean and quite spacious and breakfast was continental. The location was very good, only a short walk to the centre of the City
The hotel Livia was an oasis in the centre of Tirana. Excellent location but absolutely no parking whatsoever! Which was a bit of nuisance when we arrived with a hire car to unload and later wanted a hire car delivered to the hotel! But the "feel" of this hotel is lovely. Obviously used by locals as well for functions it has a family feel to it. Room was roomy and clean, breakfast buffet very good, a handy bar as well, but don't expect an evening meal here. To be honest there are so many eateries around that is not an issue. The manager (?) was a very nice chap and chatty too, which when we don't speak albanian is a bonus! Definitely recommend!
I found the hotel very quickly, now it has a bright red sign, so you see it from a long distance. The room I got (301) was excellent, equipped with a fridge, a hairdryer, and a clean bathroom. The bed was okay. There are lot of Albanian TV-channels. As the room was cold, I asked for a blanket, and when it was necessary I heated with the air conditioner. The room was safe and it was cleaned every day. The breakfast was okay. The personnel were very friendly and helpful, I loved their "no problem" and "we'll sort it out" attitude. Anything I asked for they gladly did (they lent me an umbrella, changed the remore control, let me have a late checkout). There were slight problems, though: the wi-fi signal was weak and often broke down, there was a dog on the roof next door which barked at random times.
Rooms are quiet and basics. But they have such a cool verandah!! The breakfast is not super good except their home made marmelade. They charged you 4€ / day for parking. Their price are still pretty cheap for the center of Tirana. Plus it's just 1 min by feet from the Pazar i ri !
