Villa Tafaj is one of the first private hotels present in Albania. The building itself dates from the years 1920s, which belonged to one of the oldest families of the capital, the TAFAJ family. The family business, which was first opened on 22 March 1991 in the form of a tavern, offered traditional Albanian cuisine. Later on, the business expanded and welcomed the first foreign visitors who came in Albania. Since then, the business continues the tradition of welcoming. Today the business not only offers traditional and Mediterranean cuisine of the restaurant, but it also offers the facilities of its own bar, pizzeria, relaxing garden, conference room and a 25 room hotel. The warm hospitality, professional service, administration of the TAFAJ family itself and the combination of the classic with the traditional are signature characteristics of this family run business.
