This hotel is very well located near and almost on the beach. The rooms are neat and clean. Ours had a balcony with a partial view of the sea. Elevator capacity is limited, so make sure that you are out early when checking out.

I wouldn't have given such a "poor" rating if the hotel's advertisements were honest. They advertise themselves as a 5 star hotel. This facility is FAR from five stars - even by Albanian standards. The front desk wanted to keep my passport upon check in, and this is not standard procedure in Albania. I was not comfortable with that and... More

The hotel is situated in the heart of Saranda. Friendly staff...especially at the pool bar. The hotel was renovated in 2002 and has five stars, but I would say it is more like a three star hotel. The pool is pretty tiered, but it is clean and well look after. Food is average. If you want to sleep before 00:30... More

The Hotel was built before 1990, however was recently renovated. It is one of few hotels in Saranda that deserves probably a rating between 3 to 4 stars. For the foreigners I should say that in Albania is still missing an official ranking of the hotels. So do not give a lot of importance to the numbers of stars the... More

Good location overlooking the bay. Small room, comfortable beds. Bathroom was dated with a broken toilet seat and no shelf space. Inconveniently located electrical outlets (behind the fridge). Room amenities include a safe, but too small for a laptop. WiFi worked well. The two elevators are small and slow. There are several steps leading to them, without a ramp. Breakfast... More

It's really a shame that Albania doesn't embrace the fascinating things that it has - beautiful mountains, wildlife, organic produce- and a lot of very friendly, open people. All Albanians I met seemed to think that Saranda is the most beautiful place in Albania but it is far from the case. The hotel Butrinti is apparently a 5 star hotel... More

Great location, looking over the bay of Saranda. Very friendly welcome. Porter took bags to suite. Large seating room, large bedroom and jacuzzi bath and massage shower. Very large balcony. There was a sofa bed in the seating room. Breakfast was varied and very good. Good WiFi connection

We spent 2 weeks in 5 different locations in Albania this summer and this hotel was by far the most expensive and saddest place we stayed in. It may have been a nice hotel a long time ago but those times are long gone! The location is very good and the reception area is kind of grand and elegant. It... More
