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

Sarande is a lovely spot in the south of Albania with nice and cheap hotels. But Hotel Butrinti is a nightmare. Nothing functions: the flush of the toilet, the lights in your room, the lights in the corridor, the shower (Steaming hot and ice cold at the same time), the Wifi, the guests computer in the hall, the swimming pool...

This is the secind visit to the hotel and the biggest compaint I have is that the reception desk staff give the guests a very clear impression that they do not believe you. As usual when you check out you are asked if you took anything from the mini bar? I always say no as I never touch it and... More

This really is one of the nicer hotels in Saranda. The rooms are on the small side and lack amenities but you can't beat the view of the sea and of the nearby island of Corfu! The rooms facing the street are noisy but you can't hear much with the air conditioning on. The heavy curtains block out the street... More
