The Best Hotels in Albania that are green

It doesn’t matter what your travel destination is, finding the right spot to stay can make or break your trip. For an off-the-beaten travel destination like the Balkans it is even harder to find the best spots to stay. Let alone finding a place that takes good care of its environment. But if you are looking for the best hotels in Albania to rest your head, you’re in luck. I listed the top 5 green hotels in Albania that take care of the environment, without compromising on comfort or hospitality.

– The best hotels in Tirana that are green –

Of all the hotels in Tirana there are 3 that stand out from the rest for being both green and incredibly comfortable and luxurious. And because Tirana is still a largely underdeveloped luxury actually doesn’t come at a steep price here. Time to add Tirana to your city trip bucket list.

1. The Diplomat Hotel

Booking Rating: 8.7 | Privates from: EUR 60

Immediately upon my arrival at The Diplomat Hotel in Tirana I knew I made the right choice. The hospitality of the staff is impressive, the beds huge and comfy and the breakfast is awesome. Admittedly the location is not the best in town, being about a 20 minute walk from all the touristy highlights but finding better value-for-money in Tirana will be tough. Green hotel or not.


2. The Mak Hotel Albania

Booking Rating: 8.5 | Privates from: EUR 92

The Mak hotel is the most luxurious on this list. It has a business focus but the location and facilities make it perfect for any type of traveller. The Mak is best enjoyed on sunny days for it has a large pool with accompanying o2 pool bar. 


3. The Rooms hotel & residence

Booking Rating: 9.5 | Privates from: EUR 67

The best rated hotel in Tirana on the list. The rooms are luxurious and very modern, with straight white lines carving out the design of this hotel. Comfy beds, good breakfast and great hospitality. The location requires a bit of a walk to the historic highlights as well, but its closeness to the Blloku restaurants makes it a very nice place to stay in Tirana.


– Green hotels in the rest of Albania –


1. Seaside Artist Hotel Saranda

Booking Rating: 7.1 | Privates from: EUR 60

Saranda is all about tanning and sunset cocktails and The Seaside Artist hotel (or Seaside Saranda Hotel as it is sometimes called) provides the perfect outpost to do so. It overlooks the bay from which you have a clear view of the sun setting over the Greek island Corfu. The Seaside Artist Hotel is the only green hotel in Saranda and with its awesome sundeck is is a great posterboy for sustainable travel in Albania.


2. Eco Garten House Shkodra

Booking Rating: 9.5 | Privates from: EUR 20

Eco Garten House is a green oasis within only a 5 minute walk from Shkodra’s city centre. It is not a luxurious hotel but the rooms in this family-owned homestay while simple, are comfortable nevertheless. Eco Garten House is a great place to familiarize yourself with local customs and the life local Albanians lead. The leafy garden with vegetables patch is a great place to relax and wind down after a day exploring town.
