Excellent location right next to Butrint. Very quiet at night and it's perfect for a bit of stargazing. Dinner was fantastic and we would advise people to make use of it. Staff went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. It's the only option near the park but it's a great hotel. We were upgraded to a bigger... More

We spent our last night in Albania. Came from northwest to southeast in 3 days. Hotel Livia was amasing after all... That was the best among our hotels. Meal was delicious and economic. Rooms were comfortable and elegant. Employees were kind. Its just next to antique Butrint city which MUST be visited...

Also, once we finished the dinner, nobody came to ask us if we would like a dessert or whatever. We had to go to them to ask... More

Spectacular location in the tiny Butrint peninsula, 50 meters away from the greco-roman site, but... Horrendous service! Horrid rooms! The building itself is beautiful: stone walls, great garden, surrounded by water and trees. Rooms seem to be under construction: no light besides a terrible nuclear white ceiling lamp more suitable for a prison cell; balcony looking the wrong direction: the... More

The quaint hotel blends perfectly into the national park in which it is located. The rooms are spacious, and private bathrooms and heating and air conditioning, The entrance to the National Park Butrint Ruins is literally 5 minutes from the doorstep as is the free ferry crossing to visit the Venetian Triangle outpost. The staff are friendly and services are... More

We arrived at the hotel after booking 2 months previously (via a well known hotel BOOKING website) to be told the hotel rooms were being renovated and that the hotel was closed until the start of the season. After an 8 hour drive from northern Albania to arrive in the sunset in a rural area it wasn't very good to... More

We stayed at this pleasant hotel for 2 nights after catching the ferry from Corfu before heading up to Vlora. It is the perfect location for visiting the fabulous Butrint archaeological park and also Ksmail beach. The rooms were clean and spacious; complete with air conditioning. Food was good with local Albanian dishes - breakfast was fried eggs and feta... More

Very interesting hotel, built in stone and red bricks that makes it look authentic in the landscape, great location near historical site of Butrint. The room was not big, was huge! We had a double bed in which we stayed entire family (2 adulta & 2 kids) to watch a football game, plus 1 mobile bed and a corner sofa... More

This hotel is good choice for one night, if you are planning to visit nature park next to hotel. Location is peaceful away from Sarande's more hectic beach bulevards. Restaurant offers local dishes, e.g. mussels from the lake nearby. Raki was also ok. Our room was renovated and air conditioned. Downside is a breakfast without any choice. Free wifi and... More
