Argjiro Hotel Gjirokaster

The construction of the structure in the very heart of Gjirocaster and its historical core with the old bazaar, which today houses the prestigious Argjiro Hotel, started in 1885 as a home of the Gjirocaster family and ended in 1891. Around 1930 one part of the building was turned into the “Savoia Hotel“, one of the most reputed hotels in Albania and Gjirocaster area at that time, while the other part of the beautiful structure was rented by “Bank of Napoli” in 1941.
