Overall, my partner and I were pleased with Hotel Brilant. I'm not sure what standards they use to define their self-proclaimed "4 Star Rating" though. I've stayed at 4 star hotels in many urban American cities (NYC, Chicago, Las Vegas) and even in Dubai, UAE. This place is the equivalent of about 2 stars based on my other experiences. If... More

I can only agree with the previous reviewer and feel that though this hotel doesn't pretend to be a fancy place, it is extremely nice and has a lot going for it - good location, nice spacious rooms, impeccable service and a very good breakfast . Our 6th floor room had a spacious balcony with a superb sea-view. I was... More

This may not be the biggest,fanciest, beachfront hotel in Saranda, however it is the best run, cleanest and quietest hotel in the city. The owner Armand is friendly and really goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. I have stayed here 10 times since 2011 and am never disappointed. It is walking distance to the boardwalk, the...

Negatives: lower level rooms have limited sea view (request 4th floor, room 403 if available); loud music from night-clubs (but at least it does not continue to 4am); no hotel facilities such as restaurant, bar...

The sea view rooms have amazing views. The hotel is very clean and modern. Great breakfest room. There are loud discos nearby, but the thick windows block out almost all the sound, and they shut off the music at reasonable hours. Steps away from the promenade.

We had a room with sea view balcony on the top floor. The view was amazing. A bit negative that the balcony was shared with other rooms and only divided by a screen. The room was clean and spacious and comfortable beds. Shower was also of very good. Breakfast buffet was the best we experienced in Albania, but did not... More

We stayed in Saranda for six days and it was a very pleasant experience. The Brilant Hotel is located 300 m from the south end of the beach.promenade. We booked a room with sea view and that was what we got, room 403 with a magnificent view of the Ionean sea, Corfu and the city. The hotel is only a... More

I have just returned from this place having stayed there for 6 nights. I contacted the hotel before our arrival to ask if they could change some money for me but did not get a reply before I left. Upon our arrival the receptionist gave me an envelope with 10,000 Lek in it (about £60) to tide us over until... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a tour of Albania. The hotel is close to the sea front but not one it. Our room was attractively furnished, spacious & comfortable but, warm as it was, we could have done with more than a single sheet between 2. Fortunately, in the middle of the night, I found a blanket in... More
