We stayed at this hotel a total of 9 nigths and i really recommend it . If you need something central and close to the beach and restaurants this is perfect. We had a room facing the sea and the view is just amazing. The staff was very service minded and helped us with everything we needed.

I stayed and I loved every part of it. It had very clean rooms, and very friendly service. The price was very good comparing to the other hotels that we saw in Albania. Close to the beach, restaurants and a great view. I would recommend to all of you that are looking for a classy vacation.

We used this hotel for 3 nights as a base for visiting Butrint and Gjirokastor and it was absolutely fine for the money. We had room 108 which was huge with large windows and a balcony over the sea with a fantastic view across the bay over to Corfu. We paid about £35 per night. Breakfast was freshly cooked omelette...

We stayed one night in this hotel. Not the best one we had, but 20€/night for 2 was our cheapest stay in Albania. Little balcony with seaview was good. Location is perfect: <5min walk far from the bus stations, right on the seafront, etc... I don't recommend the breakfast downstairs (not included), except for their freshly squizzed orange juice.

We chose this hotel because of a rather good ranking on TripAdvisor and partner sites, and I was never before let down by the ranking and/or the reviews. This time it was different, this hotel is below mediocre. The rooms are poorly maintained and small. There is a lot of noise because you have a busy street on one side... More

Location of the hotel is perfect, on shore and in the heart of the city. Service is ok, rooms are lovely and with a beautiful view. Price was not bad at all, 25€/room. Went to have breakfast just next to the hotel place called CACI. Superb.
