Currently only branded hotels have the opportunity to promote themselves through various online hotel-booking sites. However there is a large number of guesthouses still unexploited. Shtepi-Pushimi aims to be a marketplace that delivers a unique reservation/booking experience to such local guesthouses, apartments, spare rooms, villas, etc. and tourists. This platform will be mobile and web based. This will impact the tourism in those sites and also provide an overall better image of Albania on both national and international scale.
