If I could give this 6 stars I would! I travel a lot and Fredi and Nina are by far the best hosts I've ever experienced. Despite not speaking the same language, they show that hospitality and friendliness is a universal language. Their friend Michael was also extremely helpful in translating and we had a lovely time talking and laughing with the 3 of them and their son, Arjan. If this isn't enough for you, the food is amazing (home cooked), the view cannot be beaten, the beds are comfortable, there is air conditioning and hot water. You have to pay Fredi and Nina a visit!

We went to Albania not really knowing what to expect. So far on our trip we have had some great experiences, but none quite as memorable as staying with Isuf and his wonderful family and friends. The house is located inside a castle, which is fraught with rich history, that Michael, a friend of the family and our translator for the evening, will happily tell you all about. Michael was a fantastic help all the way through, and speaks English, Italian and Albanian perfectly. Nina, another friend of the family, is extremely warm hearted and will appoint herself as your Albanian mother. She will also cook you some extremely delicious food(URL HIDDEN) Freddie is the father of Isuf, and he is also an extremely nice man. He will smile a happy smile while he's hanging you a 4th shot of Raki (an Albanian spirit that he procures himself)(URL HIDDEN)We did not see all that much of Isuf, as he works down in Berat, but commend him for giving us the opportunity to stay in a picturesque, hilltop castle. The outstanding views, supplemented with the interesting and extremely friendly hosts, made for the best air BnB experience that we could've hoped for. If you're on the fence about where to stay in Berat, I cant recommend the Vasili guest house highly enough, it's amazing.

The guesthouse is in the middle of the fortress in a traditional old house. We had the big room with a great view. You can see the second highest mountain of Albania from the terrace. The hosts are very kind and helpful.

Staying at Vasili's has been a wonderful experience, a truly Albanian experience. Really recommend it if you happen to be around Borat

So far this was our best air bnb experience we have had, the people were very nice and friendly. The house was very clean and the room very nice. There is a fantastic view over the city and the mountains. They cooked for us and it was very tasty, liked it very much! We'll come back!

Im Sanguine type ,one life live it .I born and i live inside the Castle of Berat !Since i was 13 i start to work as a tour was a pleasure to show the people from all over the world the beauty of my country . So now i decide to help locals to turn their houses in to guest houses and to host guests from everywhere. Castle is like a small community and we help each other to build a safe future. There is a nice feeling walking an narrow paths and meeting locals . Im sure yo will like it , Sometime i dont have the opportunity to meet all the guests but dont worry ,the owners of houses will be very welcoming and easygoing ready to give all you need I love to meet new people and to show them the values of my country and my city! Every new adventure is beautiful thing for me ! So with my guest i can spend some time in discovering new destinations like mountains ,ruins of old castles ,running ,hiking ,horse riding ,dancing with the traditional music in my bar ! And if you want any tour around Berat let me know . Together we can explore Canyons ,Waterfalls .We can do hiking ,Climbing .Safari ,Explore ,and why not a Culture tour around the City of Berat where we can see old churches ,museums ,old mosques ,old houses etc.
