The hotel has very new, comfortable rooms. The staff is kind to every guest, so we had good time there. Breakfast always, we got. Dinner was consumed occasionally at hotel restaurant, which was fresh and we could recognize local flavors. We are grateful to the Balani family for spending a great, meaningful vacation there. Useful services: free sun bed, umbrella, money exchange EUR to ALL, car rental, transfer to Tirana> Durres> Tirana. They helped me to choose the sights, which was a great experience for us. I recommended Durrest and Albania to all my colleagues. Thank you :-) Burda family from Hungary

Villa Balani is lovely little hotel run by the amiable Stender and his family. Stender is extremely hospitable, does not speak a lot of English, but if necessary his son who speaks very good English is around. The rooms are squeaky clean with excellent beds. The hotel is a little back from the main road, so together with good isolation, noise from the road is no issue. The bathrooms are smallish but more than adequate. Breakfast is freshly prepared with nice local touches each morning. We highly recommend Villa Balani.

The hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly! Only 50 m from the sea. Totally recomend! Very closed to the Durres city, access to public transport. Food very delicious and cheap compared to other restaurants.
