Imagine waking up from the sound of the seagulls and the smell of just made croissant.
The ease of booking and checking in, the comfort in the rooms and their restaurant, the proximity to the beach and nice local restaurants and bars together with water sports available made this vacation memorable. The pool on the top of one of the buildings with view of bay was exquisite.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper take rooms on the mountain side. It you plan for a relaxing vacation, i...

The hotel has a great view of the bay as it is located at Uji Ftohtë, just before you enter the tunnel. The veranda has a great view for a morning breakfast/coffee or a dinner/snack in the evening. They also offer service on the bridge balcony which has also a nice view. Did not get to eat there as we were on our way to a dinner. Internet wifi was available in the common area and veranda the whole time. Rooms were clean and nice. Were not able to get a bay view room as we booked on the last day. In the evening we heard concert going on in the background and followed the noise to Kompleksi Kristal where we attended a nice concert til early in the morning.

I have been to Albania several times and enjoyed Vlore much more than Tirana! The Hotel New York was wonderful. We had a brand new room on the 4th floor that, for only 60 euros / night was fabulous and a great bargain- jacuzzi tub, balcony with a view of the sea and a huge comfortable bed.
It was well located just across the street from a private beach (v clean). The restaurant was nice, breakfast a bit crowded but there were other options nearby.
When my daughter was ill with a migraine, and they were working on the room ( the room was brand new and still being completed- we asked for a last minute room to stay with family) someone from the front desk came up to check on us which was very kind.
All in all no complaints!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2009

Vlore is an up and coming Albanian beach town. The hotels are like those you would find at a low-end beach town in the U.S. The rooms are small, basic, uncomfy beds, few amenities, but right at the beach. New York had a decent restaurant and pool. While I was there a huge section lost electricity including the hotel so I had no hot water and little electricity. It's Albania - they're trying.

The beaches in Vlore range from busy to crowded. They are clean, which is most important. Some are sand, some rocks, some a combination. The water is clean and I swam. The nightlife in Vlore is good, as are the restaurants. Mostly this is a family-type destination.

Traffic was a huge pain. It took us 30-45 minutes to get to this hotel from the center of Vlore - 1 or 2 km away. There is the one seaside road and that's it.

Vlore itself is about 3.5 hours drive from Tirana on good roads. Perfect weekend getaway. There were lots of Europeans coming in from the ferries.
