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

Built in Sarandë "Grand Hotel Saranda", comes to you with a new image, entirely redesigned in 2011, which offers even other environments such as a new bar in the terrace with an amazing view of the town, where you may enjoy the fantastic landscape it offers and the marvelous sunsets, especially during summer; and a new restaurant in the veranda,...

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

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

Very beautiful and great views from the balcony of the sea and night life, very clean and got everything we wanted. But would not recommend as a family holiday great for just the two of you.

The hotel is situated on the beachfront next to Butrinti Hotel, right in the heart of Sarande nightlife. We didn't stay there but it is a modern and new hotel. The hotel has a beach with chairs, umbrellas and a large cafeteria. The Cafeteria gets very noisy because of the loud dance music played all day and night. The nearby... More
