Beautiful little boutique hotel . All furnishings are set in a traditional manner. Beautifully renovated bathrooms for modern conveniences. The view from the room or balcony is stunning. Staff is friendly and helpful. Walking distance to bazaar, a large variety of bars, cafes, and restaurants and of course the castle. I highly recommend this quaint little place.

Stay as Sultan in Kalemi ;-)
Old Ottoman style hotel and wonderful staff. The only weak point is too slow (/poor) wifi signal. Wonderful view and easy parking which is a real challenge in busy Gjirokaster [especially Summer time!]

Great location and exceptional room
The hotel is situated in an old restored Ottoman house, and our room was exceptionally beautiful (in former times it was the bridal room). The breakfast is very pleasant under a pergola, and it's a huge breakfast they prepare and try to accommodate all your wishes. The view from the room is wonderful, to the mountains and to the old and new city parts - as well as the castle. Very much recommended for Gjirokaster visit, as it's also very close to the Bazar and old center of town.

Un bon accueil dans une tres belle maison Ottomane
Accueil chaleureux par le patron et le personnel, dans une très belle maison Ottomane préservée dans son style, très propre. Excellent Petit déjeuner fait maison avec des produits frais, nous avons même pu aller en cuisine pour apprendre à faire les beignets du matin.
