Sheraton Tirana Hotel

Sheraton Tirana is the only 5 star hotel in Albania and I never had any doubt where to stay in the city of Tirana. Most Tripadvisor reviews are excellent, but as a luxurious traveler I always keep my expectations for a Sheraton hotel low. I arrived late afternoon and after a short registration I received my room card, but as expected not an escort to the room. Starwood knows how to treat their costumers well and the hotel gave me an upgrade to a Junior Suite based on my status with SPG.

The Junior Suite had a typical Sheraton design without surprises. The view of the national stadium was the only thing that could tell me where in the world I was. The shower wasn’t separated from the bathroom and the amenties was quite basic as the other Sheraton’s. The bed was OK, but could be more soft. There is no wireless internet in the room which I consider a must, but the chargeable cable had high speed. Wireless internet is available in the non-smoking lobby which was a nice touch as there is no smoking law in Albania.

The facilities included a swimming pool and gym which could need an update. The service level was in general very good for a business hotel and if you keep your hotel experience low in Tirana you will have a great time. Sheraton Tirana is definitely the best hotel to stay and is therefore highly recommended.

My opinion: Good experience.
