Stayed 27- 29th March 2015. My first impression - tired and unloved. On closer inspection we noted frayed carpet, heavily scuffed walls and very chipped paintwork. The staff were extremely helpful and we only ate breakfast there and found it decent enough. Would I give this hotel 5*'s NO. It was overpriced for what we got, would I recommend it,... More

For 20 euros more I would next time go to a 5 star. It looked like a good hotel right on the sea, lovely view 30 euros with breakfast. Careful what you get. We were told the restruart was closed for private function. Not told however that is was a party. Went down at 9:30 to ask when the loud... More

Wonderful hotel. In a very good position, very clean, and affordable prices on all special food from a special cook. every time I would come in Saranda would stay the Grand Hotel Saranda.I like it l. Grand Hotel Saranda is the only destination where you can relax and really feel as if you were at the hotel with 5 ☆☆☆☆☆

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
