About the Homestay
I am Elona, an Architect based in Tirana. The idea of Hosting was inspired by my own travels. So far I have enjoyed how travelers have brought to my home pieces of their culture, of their experiences and had some funny stories to share. :)
Whenever possible I like to welcome my guests in person and give them my recommendation about the city, or leave them to their privacy if they please.
Before you book, make sure to read the listing's description and feel free to contact me if you have any question.

About the Area
We are in the most characteristic and famous area of the Capital, within walking distance from the New Bazaar and Skanderbeg's Square.
In 200 m range you can find supermarkets, coffee shops, bars, barber shops, hair salons, dry cleaning, pharmacy and restaurants.
The apartment is part of a rather new building and it is situated on a narrow, secondary one-way and therefore very comfortable and quiet.
The area is well served by public transport, and allows you to easily and quickly reach all points of interest in Tirana.
All bus stations are located around Tirana Center. The ticket is 40 leke. You can find public bus from 6 AM-11 PM.
If you need extra tips on how to get around, I'll be happy to help you.
