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 for the description of travel services we offer or

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.

    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.

    Seriously one of the best place I've stayed in my life. This place has a soul. It's not just a place to stay the night, you leave this place feeling genuinely better. Thank you Florian, and your family, for hosting me and sharing your culture, food, roof and history!

    What an excellent stay. Florian and his family are genuine hosts and feed you the best local food and wine. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and lots of opportunity for great conversation. Very beautiful place. I would definitely stay there next time I return to Shkodra.

    The stay at Florian's was amazing. Florian and his family made me feel welcomed and the environment was relaxing. The food and home crafted wine was outstanding and the location was pretty good too.
