I'm not sure if the Hotel Brilant was supposed to be Brilliant in English. However, I had a large room with a queen size bed, a sofa and a coffee table. The bed was comfortable, but had one of those wooden surrounds that sticks out from the mattress and makes it difficult to get in and out of bed without... More

The hotel is situated close to the promenade in Seranda. Our room on the fourth floor was spacious with a balcony overlooking the bay. The hotel is modern and facilities were of a good standard, with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was adequate, with the usual continental mix we have found in most Albanian hotels. We had wifi access during... More

This is a tale of two nights. On the first night we were booked into a horrid room at the side of the hotel. A bed and two bedside tables was all the furniture. The bathroom looked as though it had not been renovated for some while. The shower was faulty, the only way to flush the toilet was to... More

We stayed at Hotel Brilant Saranda for 3 nights during our holiday in Albania and Greece. Hotel Brilant was the perfect choice for us. Our room was SO large - the biggest of any room we had throughout Albania - and included a balcony with a sea view. We were on the 4th floor and had a good view, but... More

I read really nice reviews on Trip Advisor but was disappointed myself. Travelling with a small group, we arrived to be told that the hotel had double booked. I had paid a single supplement, and was asked to share a suite with another lady, who was unknown to me. We were told the suite had two bedrooms with bathrooms, and... More

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...

Positives: Very good sized room with big bathroom and large balcony; clean; plenty of parking; close to promenade; nice breakfast; extremely friendly and helpful staff. 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...
