Built in 1938 this historic building housed the Minister of Foreign Affairs for more than 40 years during Albania’s communist past before returning to the Kotoni family in 1991. In 2010/11 one of the owners from the Kotoni family helped re-design the building into the elegant contemporary family-run hotel that it is today. There are 23 stylish rooms complete with air-conditioning, tea/coffee making facilities and free WiFi. The hotel has an excellent restaurant and a welcoming lobby bar/lounge and the staff here really go out of their way to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. Located off the main boulevard in Tirana, all the main sights of Tirana are within walking distance.
