"We were booked into Kalemi 2 but when we got there they said we were booked into Kalemi 1. So we were the only 1 in our group of friends that are not staying together. The walk was 10mins away uphill and downhill at times. No email was sent to us to inform us that the hotel was fully booked out even though our booking was confirmed. "

"I had a very nice stay at Guest House Garden. The owner's son was there and speaks good English, so he shared some information with me about Gjirokaster. The place is quiet, clean, and comfortable. It's only a few minutes' walk to the bazarre and has a nice view of the castle. I was able to relax and rest well, and I'll definitely stay there again for any of my future Gjirokaster trips."

"the room was really nice and the whole house had just to be seen one time in life! the decoration is really different that usual and it makes it special. the people were so kindly and helpful even without speaking much English. the breakfast was very good and most probably made by the people there themselves. the accommodation ist very well situated with an amazing view of the town and the castle. We only had to walk like 10 minute to her to the castle or to bars / restaurant. 100% satisfied. we recommend it with no doubt!"

"Hotel Gjirokastra is an excellent place to stay as you sightsee around the old city. Upon arriving to the city centre we did not know how to find the hotel, so asked a taxi to drive, and we followed. This was 500 leke ($3.75) well spent, as it would have been hard to find without gps. It was quite close, and when we arrived there were many cars parked and even double parked for an event just behind the hotel. However, a kind gentleman from the hotel came out and magically created a parking space for our vehicle, and then proceeded to carry both of our bags to our upgraded room. We had booked three single beds, but were upgraded to a beautiful and spacious room with king size bed, and upstairs loft with two single beds. Our daughter was thrilled to take the loft, and my wife and I were pleased to have our own space below too. While there was no wi-fi in the room as the signal didn't reach that far, the hotel bar/cafe was very close and no problem. Breakfast was great as well, with traditional Albanian petula (kind of like a donut) as part of the spread. Perfectly situated between the 13th century castle above and the cobblestone-lined streets of the bazzar below, this is a great hotel to stay at while visiting Gjirokastra. Enjoy...!"
