Getting wittingly lost in the narrow alleys of Korca, can take you to a lot of nice places you wouldn’t have discovered if you kept following the main streets. The old neighbourhoods are the real deal of knowing the traditional lifestyle of the locals, especially of it’s an early morning and you get to see the housewives cleaning the doorways noiselessly. Well, you’ll never experience these moments through blogs, so make sure to be at the right place once you visit Korca.
Mergan Hotel is our suggestion for all we described above. The narrow stone alleys will bring you to this 3 floors villa, owned by a friendly and welcoming couple, Malvina and Juxhin. Juxhin explained us that this place used to be his grandmother’s house, Meri, and he had no intention of selling it, but to upgrade it to a brand new hotel, welcoming guests from all over the world.
So the couple decided to call it Mergan, honouring the grandmother and their two daughters, Meri and Megan. The story of the name will make you remember the family, for sure.
Exploring the rooms, we noticed something very interesting, which made us wanna come back. Every room tv has access to Netflix, so the chill is guaranteed. Imagine those cold autumn and winter night in Korça, when after exploring the city and having a warm dinner you get back to your room, under those warm sheets and all you want to do is watch your favourite series. Mergan offers you that in high definition.
The hotel offers double rooms, twin rooms and family rooms so it’s able to accommodate everyone on their request. They are so neat and tidy you don’t wanna move anything but so welcoming and comfy that you don’t want to leave.
The balconies are another thumbs up for the hotel. Having the first coffee in the balcony is a must for so many people and Mergan won’t keep you away from that. You can view the rooftops of the houses if you are in the third floor and have the city to yourself. You can see everyone going slowly to work and back and wondering why they don’t rush. Well that’s the lifestyle. Being late is ok in such a city. It also applies to you once you become a Korça guest. Being late is a privilege you rarely get in life, without consequences. But here, it’s ok.
How do you feel about those full table breakfasts?
Oh that’s a thing when you’re on holiday. You need to have everything, every taste, every flavour. Mergan Hotel will offer you the modern and traditional breakfast dishes.
You will have the byrek and the croissant too. You will have the milk and the life juice too. You will have the nutella and the cherry jam too. And you know what? If you love the jam, you can also buy it. You will feel like in Korça when you’ll have that jam sitting on your own couch at home. You can bring the feeling in your backpack.
The crackle of fire, and the smell of the burning wood at the chimney in the corner will be your evening friend. Nice music and a quiet window view is what you get in a normal night in Korça.
It’s all about relax and peace. If you are into these, don’t think twice about booking a room at Mergan Hotel and experiencing a Korça lifestyle in a comfy and modern place.
