Hotel Kalemi, Gjirokaster

Hotel Kalemi description

Experience the historic Ottoman-era architecture for which Gjirokaster is famous -- stay in a lovingly restored characteristic home, the Hotel Kalemi. This charming guesthouse/hotel features traditional woodwork and carved ceilings inside, and the balconies offer sweeping views across the slate-roofed homes to the fortress. The hotel has reliable electricity (partly solar), central heating and constant hot water. Some rooms have traditional design featuers, others are of modern design. All rooms have private bathrooms and television, some have air-conditioning. Breakfast is included in the price of the rooms.

Tourist attractions within the city include an ethnographic museum and the immense fortress, as well as the cobblestoned streets, old bazaar and historic tower homes characteristic of Ottoman-era cities. Other area attractions include two archeological sites (the Illyrian city of Antigonea, and the theater and baths near Sofratike), one of the oldest standing Orthodox churches in the Balkans in the village of Labove, and the fortress of Ali Pasha in nearby Tepelene.

Gjirokaster Attractions

The city is characterised by its grey slate roof-tops and its large, double vaulted, former upper middle-class houses. The city’s other main attractions are its confined, cobble-stoned bazaar-quarter, and rising above the city, the 18th century Citadella, which serves as the venue for the Albanian International Folkloric Festival.
