My girlfriend and I were in Albania for 10 perfect days. This country is so welcoming and their food is healthy and delicious EXEPTED in THIS restaurant: 1 - Superficial service: Be patient. 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

The previous reviews were all in 2013. We were there in October 2013 and for a start the road from the Greek border varies from good to a bit bumpy for a short time but not too bad. This area is now covered with mandarin trees and some green crops - a complete change in the last few years. I... More

I booked two nights in the Livia hotel to make a visit to Butrint easy. This was not necessary. One night near the site would have given us all the time at Butrint that we needed. The Livia hotel has a fabulous situation. Near the water and near the site. And it is designed to look well in the setting.... More
