Good, simple, clean accommodation with an unbeatable location, just steps from the main pedestrian street - close enough to the action, but far enough away to enjoy a quiet night's rest. Nice little courtyard for sitting, covered with grape vines.
Staff is great, very kind, treating you like guests rather than paying customers, very happy to chat with you and get to know you. Only suggestion I have is to skip the breakfast - you can probably do better on your own for the price.

... they are actually making the wine but it was really cool to see! The last stop almost killed me, we were standing near where the guys were working and I felt as though my throat was slowly closing up and I needed to cough so bad but was trying to hold it in! Turns out they were using sulfur, well thats interesting. We went into the restaurant clearly not dressed for a fancy dining occasion more for a road trip to the country! We decided to do a wine tasting which ...
... shout "HELLO" as you go past. If you do stop and chat often you accumulate a swarm of kids, some of whom will run after you as you leave. In the cities they are a bit less friendly and will sometimes ask for money or cigarettes which if you are not used to it might be a bit unnerving. Of course not everyone is super friendly and some do give you funny looks but all of this behaviour is probably due to the fact Albania has been closed for so long the people are simply not used to ...
... i crossed into Macedonia.
