The Old Town heaves with accommodation options, many of which count among the most memorable in the country. You'll rarely need a reservation, though in the height of summer it's worth calling ahead.


There are plenty of atmospheric restaurants in the Old Town, though in general there's still some way to go before the sleeping options in Gjirokastra can be matched.

Drinking & Nightlife

There is no nightlife to speak of in Gjirokastra and the Old Town pretty much shuts down by 10pm.
