The First 5-star Hotel in Albania is Finally Open

News Albania is a relatively new destination on the tourist map, and the country only starts attracting tourists. This gives a boost to the local hotel system, making companies more interested in opening hotels in the country. The latest addition is particularly interesting – this is the first officially certified 5-star hotel in Albania!

The opening ceremony of the Maritim Hotel Plaza Tirana was a big event with prominent guests like Tourism Minister Blendi Klosi and German Ambassador Peter Zingraf. The 5-star hotel in Tirana, the capital of Albania, occupies 23 floors and offers 190 rooms and suites. The hotel is located in the central part of the city. It is an excellent choice for leisure tourists as the hotel is situated close to famous tourist attractions, best shops and restaurants, and the National Theatre. The distance to Tirana International Airport is 15 kilometers.

The Maritim Hotel Plaza Tirana also offers functionality for business guests. There are four meeting and conference rooms of different size. These rooms are intended even for large groups of people and feature modern technologies. Guests of the hotel will be also glad to know that there are several restaurants, a fitness center, and a spa in the hotel.

The new Tirana hotel works under a franchise agreement. This is a rebranded hotel that previously was known under the name “Plaza Tirana”. The former hotel was also popular and had a high TrustYou Score – 95 out of 100. As this is the only 5-star hotel in Albania at the moment, upscale travelers do not have much to choose from, so the Maritim Hotel Plaza Tirana is likely to become successful. Moreover, the hotel will get a very interesting additional feature in spring 2020 – a casino.

Tirana is a popular destination for both business and leisure guests. This beautiful but not yet overcrowded destination has been welcoming more travelers in recent years. Tourists often call Albania a hidden gem. It is also easy to reach the capital as Tirana International Airport regularly accommodates flights from major European capitals, including London, Athens, Istanbul, Rome, and Munich. British Airways, Alitalia, Lufthansa, Austrian Airways, and other airlines connect the capital of Albania with the rest of the world.
