Florian’s Guesthouse and Hostel opened in 2009 and was the first hostel in the city of Shkodër. Our family, since inception offers our guests not only accommodation, but a memorable experience; a place where hospitality, history and natural beauty combine in perfect harmony.
A dinner party at our Florian’s Guesthouse is an every night experience! There is no better way to connect with the local culture and tradition, than having a dinner party and becoming part of our family. We are located just outside of the city and surrounded by vineyards and organic produce and fruit fields. Our guests share in the bounty of delicious and healthy home grown foods…literally directly out of the ground! Our guests share in the sampling (and drinking) of my Dad’s six varieties of wine. It is possible to see the grapevines and experience the place where the grapes are pressed. You will share, indulge and devour the delicious food and drink with our family. And among us – a professional chef and a wine master with decades of experience.
The dinner table is a place to share stories. Its a very special time. We have been fortunate to have many special people visit us from all over the world. All our guests seem to enjoy going places which are culturally rich, authentic and off-the-beaten-path. Sharing their stories with us at the dinner table, enjoying the food and wine often lead to connections and friendships that last both while traveling in Albania and a lifetime.
Our motto is simple “join one of our dinner parties and you will leave as friends!”
