We stayed at Mare b&b for one night during our tour of Albania. We had a nice room with air conditioning, refrigerator, flat screen tv etc., but the best was the view from our balcony-the sunset over the sea was fantastic. We had a good breakfast on the terrace with home made cake, which was delicious. The owners are very... More

We stayed at the Mare B&B for 3 nights in September whilst travelling around Albania. We prebooked two nights in a sea view room and we ended up going to Himare a day earlier than planned so arranged over the phone to stay in a mountain view room they had available. Both of our rooms (and bathrooms) were a good... More

I'm glad I stayed here one night, though I paid more for a non-sea view here than I would have paid for a sea view in a larger room at hotels closer to town. (The sea view rooms at Mare were booked, and even more expensive.) Still, it has modern (if small) rooms, a nice feel, wifi (which wasn't so... More

This B&B in Himara was fine, but a bit overrated: The shower was not clean (there was hair on the floor, and not just one), the double bed is relatively small and we did not sleep very well because there was very loud music, starting at 11 pm until deep into the night. Compared to other hotels/B&Bs where we stayed... More

We spend 12 days in Albania and returned to the Mare B&B again and again to stay there for 6 days in total. We loved it so much that we didn't mind to continuously switch from one room to the other (as it had already been fully booked), as long as we could stay in the beautiful little pearl! In... More

The B&B directly at the south beach of Himare and has a small beach, seperated by rocks which can be directly accessed from the terrace. Further large beaches are few minutes on foot. The owners speak little Englkish but they are very friendly, warm and helpful. Free and fast WLAN access, Every morning we got a wonderful home made breeakfast... More

Very clean and comfortable hotel. The owners don't speak English, and we don't speak Albanian, but we managed just fine. It is right on the beach, although it's not a beach I'd rate highly. Due to a river outlet nearby, the water here is freezing (far too cold for us to enjoy swimming in) and whilst the water is a... More

Location of the hotel are very near the sea. We had a nice room with Sea view on second floor, for us it's well worth the extra euro's for the Sea view and nice sunset. It's a couple of restaurant's only some 100-meters from the hotel. To walk into the town Himara are an easy slow walk on the pedestrian... More

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely B &B. We booked in advance. This was our first stop in Albania, charming couple, can not speak english but we communicated well without language. Secure parking but we used local transport! We paued extra for an Albanian breakfast. Would definitely recomend the rooms on the sea front, and enjoying the private beach!... More
