“Well located”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Well located hotel. By chance, we actually had a suite, bedroom and adjoining seating room. Thus rooms were relative spacious with large bathroom and jacuzzi (not working). However, wallpaper was pealing and rugs were extremely old and worn. Wi-fi only in lobby.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed one night on a small group tour. Big hotel in centre of town, at the end of the main pedestrian street up to the cathedral. Well modernised and now with big rooms - ours (410) had a separate sitting area with a single bed also. Aircon, fridge and in-room safe. Good sized modern en-suite with bathtub and over bath shower. Free wifi in reception area. Breakfast buffet OK with juice, cereal, cheese and cold meats,omelette etc good coffee.

I've stayed in two places in Korca recently and this is not the best of them however it is very convenient for its location in the center of the city.

The place is generally clean and organized. It makes for a good meeting point but not the best to stay at.

Well located hotel and reasonable value. If there is a tour group in the hotel then you may be lucky and get more choice AND coffee for breakfast. Otherwise you will get only tea, maybe no yogurt and the usual cheese, meat,eggs and stale bread.

Don't expect anything fancy when you stay in this hotel. It is good value with large rooms, although, as stated by others, it shows signs of wear on the walls, the lobby chair and sofas, etc. Decent breakfast, with a quite large variety of options. Very well located in the centre of the town, within easy walking to almost everything.

We had a suite of rooms in this hotel. Two huge rooms and a large bathroom with a bath. The carpet did not fit, most of the lights did not work, paper was peeling off the walls and water welled up in the middle of the bathroom floor, but the amount of space was nice. The air conditioning worked.

For those of you complaining that the Grand is not grand (enough), please do remember that you are in a small provincial town and that you are paying about 40 USD for a double room. Is Grand really what one expects? The fact is the hotel is really well placed near the bus station, ideal for the early morning bus to Gjiorkastra, rooms are clean and the reception speaks english. OK, so the rooms are stuffy and the bed springy and for the same price, you'll find better in Albania. But most probably not in Korca. So don't dream of grandeur and your stay will be fine.
