“Good Hotel”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

A nice, clean hotel with accommodating staff and good rooms. Spectacular view. Bathroom cramped and water runs on floor. Staff speaks very limited English and cannot exchange currency, but an ATM is located at the next hotel down the block. No restaurant or bar but a good breakfast is served.

Had one night here and thought the location was a great advantage,a few minutes walk to the beach and bars.Most rooms have a balcony,unfortunately I did'nt.The rooms were fine,as were the bathrooms.Breakfast was one of the best in Albania,the individually made coffees were most agreeable.
Exceptional value

Room Tip: Ask or pay for a balcony

We have just returned from a weekend in Albania taking in Gjirocaster thanks to Auron Expeditions and Butrint, staying at this great yet inexpensive hotel which is exceptionally well placed only a short distance from the waterfront promenade leading into Saranda.

Our room was very spacious and well appointed with a great sea view. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room spotless.The foyer was modern and inviting and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was surprisingly good. The hotel lives up to its name and we would certainly go again.

Brilant is modern with nice amenities and quite a bit of charm for a newish high rise hotel. The manager Armando is a helpful and engaging doctoral student in macroeconomics. My room was very spacious and had a brilant sea view. Sarande is a bit overbuilt, but as I read on my balcony and soaked in the view of the bay, I didn't care.

We had the most pleasant stay in this hotel, really friendly staff and the rooms are really clean. I loved the breakfast too and the views from the balconies are amazing.

Thank you very much for the giving us a wonderful vacation in that beautiful city.
As this was our very first holiday as a couple, Saranda will stay in our hearts forever.

I spent 6 days with my girlfriend and my little baby in this Bril(l)iant Hotel (room 101).
Armand (owner) and his Bril(l)iant staff (from the the last to the first) were very kind, friendly, helpful and very professional people. Bril(l)liant was its continental breakfast, Bril(l)iant was housekeeping room, Bril(l)iant was the fantastic view on the 5th floor, during my breakfast (I suggest take some drinks in the Bar's Hotel in the night), on Saranda's bay, Bril(l)iant was Hotel's position (hard by center, shops, beaches, taxi stop, pharmacy and especially for young people nice night disco-pub in particular DEMI'S LOUNGE BAR), Bril(l)iant was the space in my room (double bed + enfant bed ), Bril(l)iant were Armando's information about Saranda's style life.
Only now I can understand why Briliant Hotel is Travellers' Choice 2013 winner.

The hotel was comfortable with very friendy staff but a couple of things were not to my liking. The showere was of the "wet room" type so do not go to the toilet within an hour of having a shower!! Also we were told there was a bar - of sorts but it reminded me of the song "A bar with no beer". Once these have been overcome I had a very pleasant couple of nights there and I believe some rooms had shower cubicles. The friendliness of the staff was a great asset.

Room Tip: Check the type of shower
