This hotel suffers from "big fish little pond" syndrome. Sure it looks great from the outside: beachfront, decent architecture, FABULOUS swimming pool, however on the inside there is a lot left to be desired. The rooms are sparse, have a sterile feeling and AC doesn't work adequately. Wifi signal is WEAK. Breakfast is spartan. Staff are nice but aloof… I... More

Nice location, nice pool nice views out to sea, but not much else. We stayed here for two nights, was quaint disappointed with the hotel in general. Very hot, not air conditioned throughout, not lift so a not easy with bags. Over £100 a night, just not worth it. 'Free wifi' but didn't work anywhere in the hotel, except under... More

Lowsy breakfast, no wifi, no elevator, no working AC or telephone. This is NOT a 4 star hotel. The location is ok but u can find much better hotel nearby. Really overprized and actually low standard. Unhelpfull staff. Does not accept Creditcars as payment when u check out even If it says that they do.

The hotel itself is comfortable, but there is no way it's four stars, even in Albania. The location is ok (about a 20min walk from the centre), my room had a great view over the bay, and since it was off-season (late October), the hotel was practically empty, so the price was relatively low, but even so, I've stayed in...

While as gourmands we generally found little satisfaction during our six days stay in the city of Saranda, we really did enjoy the meals we had at the downstairs restaurant at the Grand Hotel complex. The service almost immaculate, we took four or five meals there. Grilled fish and fresh fruit; beautifully al-dente pasta!

We arrived in Sarande around midday on May 15th and chose the Grand after a drive around the area. We were able to check in straight away and had rooms overlooking the sea. The rooms were bit cramped, mainly due to the huge bed frame, but adequate. The balcony was large enough and had views over the bay and Corfu.... More

We hadn't really set out our plan for Albania so had only booked a hotel for our first night (Hotel Briliant). After a night in Dhermi (which was totally deserted in September, like a ghost town), we ended up back in Sarande, hoping to check into Briliant. Typically, it was full, so over the road we went to the Grand... More

Rooms with sea view are clean and are available for 50€ (price may differ in the main season) per night. Spartanic furniture in typical balkan style (TV not functioning, old closets, old carpets, ect). Pool is available as well as a very small concrete entrance to the sea. Staff is helpfull and speaks English/Italian. restaurant is also quite ok but... More

First off, that photo is not a picture of the hotel!!! The hotel is not bad, just way overpriced for what it delivers. My room was small, but clean. Room had A/C and a fridge, no TV. The best part of the room was the bathroom, which had a nice enclosed shower with hot water. However, they advertise free wi... More
