Sleep[edit][add listing]

Hotel Shkelzeni has a standard price of 1500 lek per person per night. The rooms each have 2 beds and a terrace and it's clean. We were able to negotiate a better price with the nice man at the front counter named Mr. Bush (who is very friendly and speaks great English). Its in the city center near the giant ball on Jakov Xoxa street.

Vila Baci is another hotel, where you can stay for the night. Or just 2 hours with that some one special. The price for both (the latter being only 1000lek) is very reasonable.

Hotel International is 50 euro per night per room and very nice; It's also in the city center. Also there is a new hotel which is called Hotel Fieri. It's one of the best hotels in Fier and it doesn't cost alot. In this hotel you can find a really good restaurant and near the hotel there are many clubs and there are other things that would be entertaining for you or your family.
