Gjirokastra is a lovely old town with a lot of C18th and C19th buildings. Hotel Argjiro is very well situated in the square at the bottom of the old bazaar. It has been modernised from an abandoned building and is now a very comfortable hotel, with a lot of character. I would have liked to have stopped longer here.

The hotel is up a short flight of steps and there was a porter to help with luggage. He also kindly took my case up to my room for me as there is just the one small lift.

I had a very pleasant room on the first floor with very modern grey and beige decor and a view across the roof tops of the old Ottoman houses. There were two single beds pushed together. The mattress felt firm but was extremely comfortable, as were the pillows. There was a large and comfortable armchair, although the small work area didn’t have a chair…

The bathroom came with a good supply of very nice toiletries. There were plenty of towels which were large and dried well.

There is a message in the bedroom asking guests not to eat or drink in the room.

Breakfast had a restricted range of cereals and fruit juice. There was fresh fruit as well as the typical Albanian homemade yogurt. I gave the cooked breakfast as miss and stocked up on the cold meat and cheese with bread. there is also a toaster for those who want toast.

The hotel has only been open since October 2016 and is one of the nicest we stopped in during our trip to Albania.
