“Nice hotel in Sarande”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Sarande is a medium sized village along the southern Albanian coast that exceeded our expectations. And Hotel Brilant was probably the nicest hotel in town...other reviewers said it was enough to forget you are in the Balkins still and I agree. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the room with an ocean view was really nice!

Great new very clean hotel, nice rooms, great clean bathroom, restaurant is in 5-th floor with great view on Saranda, and Corfu. Its in the center so beach is just 1 minute walk, and there are so many restaurants, one great beach bar open 24 hours is just 1 minute walk from the hotel. Breakfast is great, location is even better. We paid 30 Eur per person for bead and breakfast in May 2014.

Well equipped, clean room with a sea view over building tops. Friendly accommodating staff. Sound proofing could be better You will hear chairs moving in the 5th floor restaurant if your room is on the 4th floor. Breakfast is about average. You can get freshly made eggs IF you ask. You could pay more and get less value.

I stayed with my extended family in Hotel Brilant before taking a ferry to Corfu. I wish we had just stayed in Saranda instead! The hotel was extremely clean and modern, with large rooms and nice balconies. Breakfast was excellent, and the view from the upper floors is great.

Best of all was the helpfulness of the man in charge. He really went out of his way to help us, and he made our stay in Albania wonderful.

Room Tip: The upper floors have better views.

I stayed at Brilant hotel for only one night while I was traveling to Greece and to tell you the truth I enjoyed my stay. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly. Free wireless, bathroom could be better ...

Room Tip: Choose the 6 floor..

We were extremely happy with our 2 night stay at Brilant. It is just up the hill from the main promenade, very easy walk into town and about 15-20 min walk to the main bus station. Our room was on the 6th floor, extremely large and spacious, with a good sized balcony overlooking the harbour. There were only sails between the balconies so not so private but we were lucky and didn't see anyone from the next door room while we were there. Lower floors had different balconies with walls between them. The bathroom was a good size with decent shower but it have a fair bit of water escaping due to the slope of the floor, not a problem though, just gave you less room to place the bathmat! Great king size bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast was extremely good with lots of varieties of local pastries and other cheeses, meats etc. the breakfast room is very nice being on the 5th floor with great views of the harbour. Sarande is a beautiful place to stay lots of dining options within easy walk of the hotel. Also the local bus goes just down the road and you can get to Butrint for 100 leke, a world heritage site that is well worth a visit if you have time while you are there. Hotel staff were helpful and spoke good English which was good for us in obtaining additional information and advice. There is also however an excellent tourist information centre on the waterfront in Surande, the only one we found in our entire trip in Albania. The girl there was extremely fluent in a number of languages and gave excellent, precise and was later found to be accurate, information! Would definately recommend, I'm sure you will be happy here on an extended stay. Free Wifi was available and worked well all over the hotel.

Rooms were very specious and comfortable. It is at the second row, most probably you won't get a sea view, however walk for five minutes and you'll be at the seafront.
Nice breakfast hall and breakfast.

We've stayed twice for a total of 6 nights.

Family run simple hotel with 3* rating.

Highly recommended.
