“Wonderfully Remodeled Hotel in Berat's Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The owners clearly put a lot of money and attention to detail into remodeling this downtown hotel. For example, I was amazed to find out that the ceiling in my room had been hand made to look like ceilings from old Ottoman-style houses.

Staff are very friendly and willing to help. For breakfast I was given a variety of choices and when I finished my eggs I was given even more food--fresh fruit and prosciutto.

The negative is that the Antipatrea is in the center of the commercial district, so not a very relaxing location. But this is true of most of the other hotels as well.

All-in-all, a very nice stay.

Room Tip: I'll echo the previous comment about room size. I had reserved a single but when I looked at it...

I paid 20 EUR per night for a single room, which was a pretty good deal. The hotel seemed very new, well decorated, furnished, etc. It looks fancier than the kind of place I usually stay, but for the price you can't beat it. The front desk staff were really nice and helpful. The only drawback to my room was that its windows were right on the main street, so there was pretty much noise around the clock. So earplugs if you get that room. On the whole, if I came back to Berat--which is a charming town, my favorite in Albania--I would probably stay in Antipatrea again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the main street are going to be noisy.

Berat was our second location in Albania and we found this gem of a hotel totally by accident. This is an immaculate hotel where we had a huge bedroom with a comfortable double and a single bed. the room was decorated in an Alpine style with a huge bathroom and a very large shower. The people were lovely- some spoke very little English but there was a receptionist who was fluent in English and was a great help. We had to park on the street but the hotel have little signs to put out and in this part of the town the parking is not restricted. Breakfast was in the restaurant and there was a good choice of options. This hotel is great value- we paid 45 Euro for B&B. Highly recommend this hotel - you couldn't find a nicer place!

Room Tip: Ours had a double and a single bed and was very large.

Brand new hotel with family rooms for reasonable price. Very clean, furnished in Berat style. The staff is very kind and helpful, despite some language problems. Although we didn't take breakfast they gave each kid a croissant.

When you go a trip in Albania on a motorcycle, and after a day of hard riding you find (by accident) this wonderful hotel in the middle of the city, then you are really lucky.
Big room with very elegant decoration, excellent matresses, very clean, with wifi and sat tv, good breakfast, and within a minute walking from the river, but above all its a family run hotel. We met the owners, a wonderful couple, we had wine together, we had very good time.

Room Tip: No notices, perfect!

My wife and me truly enjoyed our stay at the Antipatrea hotel in Berat. The hotel is situated at the busiest street in the city, but inside it is an oasis of calmness. The personnel is very friendly and helpful, ready to take the extra step to make you feel comfortable. Inside it was recently refurbished and every detail just seems to be right - from the beautiful hallways with carpets, to the perfect bathrooms, to the wonderful traditional-style wooden ceilings. The perfectly silent airconditioning helped us to find some real rest during the hot summer of Berat. All in all we considered this hotel to be excellent quality for a reasonable price. We recommend the place to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Berat.
