Very nice and well located hotel, 1 minute by foot from a bus stop to city center and 2 minutes to a beach where hotel sunbeds are available for free. Rooms are really clean and comfortable. The hotel has a family atmosphere and great, helpfull staff. Food is really delicious, there are served local dishes everyday. The only small thing, that you could work on, are lunchboxes. There is only a sandwich, an apple and water inside. But this is not so important, I highly recommend this hotel and thank you for your hospitality 🙂

I recommend the Villa Balani because of: cleanliness, cameral character, individual approach to the guest! I have visited many 5-star hotels, but for the first time the owner of the hotel thanked for the stay and invited me to visit again! Revelation ;)

We have been in Villa Ballani at the beginning of July. It is a basic hotel with very friendly family atmosphere. The owners are very friendly, approachable and helpful in every situation. The hotel is close to the beach, hotel sunbeds available and free. the hotel is close to Durres. The food was really tasty and fresh.

For the first time I see that all the ratings were 5!, and it's true - the hotel is amazing, clean, tidy, calm outside and inside. You really feel care - but this care is as if invisible - it is not imposed on you and does not interfere with you. About food - everything is cooked with a soul (pasta - top, meat dishes, sweets - is fine :), and is very tasty. the beach and the sea are clean - otherwise there would not be such sea inhabitants), a big plus is the umbrellas in the price, you will always find a place. to sum up: it would be nice for the guests of this hotel to appreciate what the owner does for us ;-), and of course we say to Mr. Balani, his family, and all the hotel staff, sometimes not visible to us, "Faleminderit Shumë". Aleh/Anna.

We have already visited Villa Balani for the third time. This year we took 18 people with us. We recommend this place with all our hearts. Family atmosphere, delicious and fresh food, clean and spacious rooms, very nice staff and owners, very close to the beach and to the store. We will come back there someday.

Very friendly place, family atmosphere, the owners are open and very helpful, they are available when needed, but not overbearing. They are people with a great personal culture, empathy, you could feel that you are a guest, not an intruder. Delicious, fresh and varied food. Rooms with balconies, very clean, cleaned every day, towels and bed linen - changed twice a week. Beach 3 minutes away, hotel sunbeds available and free. Parking at the hotel which is a big plus when renting a car. I chose this hotel because of the opinions of others and I can honestly write: I was not disappointed :) During my stay I had an incident, I choked - the help from the owner and staff was immediate, the doctor and other people helped me in a few seconds for everything again thank you very much ❤️ Invaluable, quick response and help. Any comments, inquiries solved immediately, take-away form available in the early morning instead of breakfast. Being in Durrës I will 100% choose this hotel again, also recommend to my friends. The best service and support in the world, better than at home :)

We were there with our 2 sons in 2022. I really recommend the hotel, especially for a stay with children. We were looking for a quiet place close to the beach. This was a perfect choice. The hotel is clean, not noisy. They have very good food, especially dinners. Our room was at the back of the street, so it was ver quiet. They have air-condition. The hotel is very close to the sandy beach and the see. The owner is very friendly. We were very satisfied.

My first time in Albania - I’ve only been here a few days but I’m so happy with the service and standards that have been provided. The hotel staff are all friendly, personable and attentive, the food in the restaurant is great and the location is perfect. The rooms are immaculate and spacious. It may be my first time here but it most definitely won’t be my last. I cannot recommend this hotel any more - it’s great!
