Hotel Tradita was in a nice location, and was very pretty. The food was good (but expensive) and there was music at dinner, as we ate in the beautiful courtyard.
The staff was nice, and they had a cool gift shop. My twelve year old daughter loved the loft in our room.
We went at a time of year with lot's of bugs, and it was annoying having them in our room.
There was no wifi and there were many tour busses surrounding the hotel.
Overall it was a nice stay in Sckoder!
Good hotel in Shkoder. Centrally located, but very quiet. Two blocks from most important pedestrian street and 3 blocks to the cathedral. Room and bathroom decoration is very Albanian. Parking is inside the hotel, which is very convenient, and front desk people are very helpful. Restaurant is very nice and has good local dishes – the carp was delicious as well as the trout. Take into consideration you may have a room in second floor (as we did), there is no elevator and you have to walk through a backyard, without a roof. We didn’t have problems as it wasn’t raining or snowing.
Stayed here two nights three days. It’s a very old, traditional style hotel. If it’s rustic olde worlds charm your after, this is your place. If you value your modern comforts, maybe not.
The rooms are across a courtyard and up flights of stairs, no lifts. TV in my room non existent. Walls paper thin. I shouted shut up at one stage as my noisy neighbour was on the fone and I could hear every word. The bathroom is compact but useable. Staff hardly about, but check in great. The price per night amazing value.
So, if you value or want to be transported back in time, this is the place. If not, then stay elsewhere. It’s not really my cup of tea and I wouldn’t choose to stay here, simply as I prefer a more modern hotel. But it’s clean, cheap and perfectly presentable. The big plus, an amazing on-site restaurant with a similar rustic feel but food to die for and value is amazing.
Lovely stay here, bright comfortable rooms, open fireplace and grill in the restaurant making a warm ambience. Food was excellent although we were presented with a very expensive (for Albania) bottle of wine, ask to see the list!! Traditional live music also played while we were there.
Free bikes for guests, making it easy to visit the pedestrian precinct of Shkodër. Would stay here again.
The building is said to date to 1694. It is arranged around a large center courtyard. Much work is currently being done to renovate and renew the structure. Our room had been recently renovated and was in great condition but rather small. The new bathroom was nice to have. The workmen were active until after 10pm and started again about 7am.
We had trouble sleeping because the beds were very firm. The pillows were large and had so little give to them that they felt like overfull sacks of grain.
Another problem was the free wifi. It worked fine everywhere other than our room (#118). We were in the back of the building and the signal was too weak there.
We arrived shortly after a very large tour group so there was a lot of competition for staff attention. In the morning, the tour group had taken over the buffet but we did manage to get fed.
They get low marks for service because of the tour but the character of the place is outstanding.
