Interaction with Guests
If you need, I am happy to give you hints on places to around, especially where to eat well. It is very likely you will appreciate food in Tirana very much given our italian, greek, and turkish influence on the dishes, at some great prices.
Besides my mother tongue, I can communicate in english spanish and italian so please feel free to contact me in any of them.
Unless you are arriving too late by plane, and I am not playing or watching football :-), I can pick you up from airport, otherwise the meeting point is at Globe Center (qendra Globe on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) coordinates) which is a household appliance store in rruga e kavajes, next door to my building.
This is a modern neighborhood, in Rruga e Kavajes where bus stations to west, north and south Albania are all between 5 minutes and 15 minutes walking distance. There are plenty of good coffee bars (espresso lovers will find the selection pretty nice, of course I can recommend), and there a few good restaurants and pizzerias at good prices. Update: a new Gym is round the corner.
Bus stations are all within 3 minutes and the line Kinostudio-Kombinat which runs all the way from west end to the east end of the city is 100 m away. The ring road bus that essentially goes around the city is 200 metres away. walking, unless it is raining heavily, it is generally the best way to get to know this city, and safety is not an issue here. Remember, we get over 270 sunny days a year.
There is a taxi stand literally downstairs.
Coming to the place from airport you can use the airport shuttle to the center of the town (running every full hour til 7pm daily) then take a cab or the Kombinat line (direction Kombinat) to stop at Ish Parku station (then walk 100 m)
Other Things to Note
The place is fully furnished. Indeed I live here when there are no guests. You can cook and you'll find all you need.
I don't drink water from the tap, and neither should you, but cooking with it is super fine.
According to law, people cannot make noise after 11 pm so expect it to be quiet from then on. The traffic runs through the day til late afternoon, but evening is generally quiet outside. across the street there is a parking lot, and it is included in the price if you come with own car.
No smoking inside, no parties and no pets are allowed, strictly. As electricity is pretty expensive, we would kindly ask you to switch AC off as well as other lights and electrical equipment when you are not in the apt. We program the boiler to have plenty of warm water throughout the day.
Extra towels can be provided upon request. No unannounced visitors and please keep quiet after 23.00.
