Hotel Tirana was a meeting point of important people and the place of organizing the most important meetings of the time. It was exclusively used for foreign delegations and tourists, and it was a intriguing and mysterious place for locals.
After the privatization he became a second home to many foreign businessmen who appreciate the excellent service it provides.
Since 1994 this hotel has gone through continuous remodeling to be concluded with the full reconstruction in 2015, which made it a 4 star hotel of international modern standards, but also left untouched the glory of his spaces.
Nevertheless this re-emerging Tirana International remains a Hotel with reputation and history still to be discovered.
