Property Description

Florian's Guesthouse (aka hostel and B& B) was started in 2009. We are located among gardens, orchards and vineyards. It’s a short walk or bike ride to the center of Shkodër, the 2nd largest city in Albania. Breakfast is included in your accommodation fee. Lunch and dinner are offered for €5 per person (*subject to change) We also offer wine and Rakia our traditional spirit from the region (made from grape mash) for an additional small fee. We serve vegetarian Albanian cuisine made from organic food farmed right here in or garden and orchards. At the Florian's Guesthouse you can not only experience the wines with dinner, but they are available for purchase. Florian's father has been making wine and Rakia for 45 years now. These libations are also made from the grapes that are organically grown on our poperty. Florian started working in tourism in 2005, with a Dutch company that arranged travel in the Balkans.Florian is an avid traveler. When he noticed there were no hostels or guesthouses in Albania, he pitched the idea to his family to create one. His parents loved the thought of hosting people from all over the world, just as Florian has shared similar experiences. The entire family wanted the world to see Albania and all her natural beauty

Our family offers guests both accommodation, and we hope amemorable experience from a place where hospitality, history and natural beauty combine in a perfect harmony.

Having a dinner party at our guest-house is a fantastic way to connect with our local culture and tradition. Our guests enjoy delicious and healthy local foods grown right here...nothings fresher! You will sample wines in the canopy of the grapevines and see the place where the grapes are pressed. You will share in great conversation ,food and drink with our family, among them - a professional chef and a winemaster with decades of experience.

Our proerpty is a special place and we’ve been fortunate to have many special people visit us. Our guests like going to places which are authentic and off-the-beaten-path. They share their stories over dinner and often make connections for their trips in Albania and beyond.
So come and join our dinner party and you will leave as a friend! For groups of three or more who are not staying overnight at our property, we provide free transportation to and from your place of accommodation in Shkodër.

If you’re planning on visiting the Northern Albanian Alps, a day trip to Adriatic beaches or maybe extending your journey to Montenegro, Shkodër, is an essential stop along the way. We think you’ll enjoy exploring the area, Shkodër's sites and the vibe of the center. Please visit both https://florianguesthouse.wordpress.com/travel-services/ for the description of travel services we offer or www.northalbaniatours.com

On request, we can arrange for a rental car, transfers and other transportation requests (newest mode of transportation help was a carpool service). Drop offs of rental cars can also be arranged if your travel plans do not accommodate back tracking. We also help arrange horse-riding tours, organize custom tours to the nearby mountains, rivers, lakes, sea, museums, castles and various historical places in the center and countryside.

Check in: 13:00-24:00
Check out: 6:00-11:00
Please note.: We are super flexible! So please let us know if you require a different check in/out time and we will do our best to accommodate you. View House Rules

    We have been there in cold advent. We didn’t expect a lot before at we got suprised daily in the 6 days we stayed. We are thankful to have stayed with Florians family and grateful about all the things we were allowed to see: their beautiful garden, animals and how their daily life is. The food was cooked by the mother of florian with heart and it was nice to eat homemade bread, soup, cheese, vegetables, jam and eggs from their chicken. Florian is really helpful. It was a great experience!

    What a wonderful introduction to Albania. Lovely relaxing setting with beautiful meals prepared by Florian’s mother with produce from her garden.Florian is a great host,welcoming & friendly & especially helpful with suggestions of trips & goes the extra mile to book guests requests. Guest house is about 45 mins. Walk into centre of town. Going on the small boat trip on Komani lake & swimming at River Shala or “ Hidden Paradise “ is a must.

    Florian and his family were very welcoming and took great care of us. The homegrown food and wine is incredible, and the atmosphere is great as you can share a beautiful dinner with Florian and the other guests. Even better, Florian personally organized an incredible 4-day hiking trip through the alps for us.

    We had the Best experience at Florian’s hostel! He helped us with everything and made our stay really homey. A part from that they (his family)made us the best traditional Albanian food, really cheap and traditional wine included every night. He let us rent his bikes every day so we could explore Shkoder. The surroundings were so nice and cosy. I will recommend this place for everyone.

    You get a sense of peacefulness and relaxation the moment you step through the front gate. Florian and his family were lovely. Breakfast and dinner were cooked for when you so desired and Florian's father has been making wine for decades which was a perfect accompaniment to the home grown vegetables and cheeses. I took a trip to Theth which Florian organised, to a wonderful guesthouse alongside the most magical views, perfect for beginning a hike. A much appreciated stay.

    Everything at Florian's guest house is wonderful and I have nothing to complain about. Florian and his family are super accommodating and friendly, even offering a free personal tour of the city to guests who stay at his home. The traditional Albanian food is great and everything was homemade from ingredients that came from his garden. If you are looking for a real Albanian experience off the beaten trail Florian's guest house is the place for you.

    First of all you need to know that when you stay at Florian's you're buying an experience not just a regular stay at a guesthouse. We had a delicious vegetarian dinner and winetasting every evening. All you eat and drink is from their own garden. Florian is a great host and he is genuinely intrested about his guests. The guesthouse is little bit out of the town but you can easily go to town with the bikes provided by the guesthouse. Florian arranged me the Theth-Valbona hike for a good price.

    The house is lovely, outside of town but not far. Rooms and bathroom are fine. The owner is superficially friendly but very defensive. I would not suggest booking a tour with him. We asked for help to go to lake Korman and he immediately offered us an all inclusive tour. All information we got was that we will be picked in the hostel. Tour was fine but had to find out everything ourselves, there wasn’t anybody responsible around, just as if we went by ourselves but paying 40€ each.
