Directly at the waterfront this good-standard (breakfast only) hotel I can recommend when visiting Saranda. Welcoming staff - the cleaning lady made all effort when we arrived an afternoon out of the season - , very clean and standard breakfast, which leaves space for improvement (...like in most hotels in Albania). Great location and in walking distance of all amenities.

Room Tip: ...I think all rooms do have sea-view

We stayed there for one night 24-25 august 2012. A funny experience...to women in the reseption. None of them spoke english. Despite our booking they tried -in cooperation with our taxidriver, to offer another and cheaper hotel. We choosed to stay...but we did not feel very welcome. While we were waiting for the room one the two women talked in the phone..sorry, not talking, but yelling in albanian. All in front of the guests in the reseption area. We laughed of this Fawlty Towers look-alike. Well, the air-condition and the wi-fi did not work and the breakfast was very simple, we liked the hotel. Fantastic wiev over the harbour and the sea, and the main pedastrian street just outside the door.We will never forget our stay here. Do you hear me, Basil?

Stayed ten nights.Great location, great views, spotlessly clean, room cleaned everyday with fresh sheets and towels.breakfast fine but a little early for us 7.30-9 (boiled egg, cheese, bread, toast jam, marmalade and coffee) we only made it once, but we like to lie in. Staff could speak more English than I could Albanian, so no language problem. Close to everything in Sarande and Sarande is close to some very beautiful places, most of which are mentioned on the many forums
but no-one seems to mention Syri i Kilter (Blue Eye) check it out one of the nicest beauty spots
I have been to anywhere. The only small negative about the Porto Edu, though it still rates as excellent for us, the balcony could be a little more private, but thats no reason not to stay there.

Small hotel, right on the Saranda waterfront. Pleasant, incredibly clean room with balcony overlooking the harbor and promenade. Across the promenade from Limani bar & restaurant, which is well worth a visit or two with its fantastic seating right on the water. Staff helpful and kept our bags overnight while we traveled to Gjirokaster. Breakfast  (included) very average.

Room Tip: Room 302 had a great view overlooking the promenade and port.

This hotel has a great location across from a good restaurant (very useful when it rains!) and the waterfront. The balcony came in handy for people watching. Besides the balcony I appreciated the big bed, the big wardrobe and the nicely decorated bathroom.

I would give this hotel five stars except that there was limited hot water, and only in the morning, and the wifi only worked in the lobby and breakfast room.

In my first room the key card didn't work (in the in-room slot that controlled electrical power), and they made several attempts to fix this before I was moved to another room. But I was moved.
