Lovely new hotel. Had a suite on top floor, excellent value for money. Spacious and modern and very clean. The hotel was centrally located, breakfast was excellent and the breakfast room had a nice view. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Would recommend highly.

This hotel is a new hotel a few hundred metres off the historic part of the town.
We had a bit of a mixed impression. On the one hand, it is new and relatively well kept, in particular in comparison with the local standard.
However, there were a couple of things we were less impressed with:
- sound proofing is not good, we could hear the neighbours talking in their rooms, and some nearby apartments across the street played their music really lound (I wonder how the locals can deal with this). Also, as we were directly next to the breakfast room, we were exposed right from the morning to the noise coming from the TV that they had put there.
- the hotel has rented two spots on the public street, but when we came, these were occupied by non hotel guests, and when I had to park on the slot next to it, a public parking guard approach me almost immediately and demanded money. Of course he didn't speak English, and he was rather agressive, so I had to call someone from the hotel to resolve the discussion.
- The employee at the reception initially upgraded us to a studio, but a couple of minutes later came into our room, told us this was not the category we had booked, and asked us to move to another room -- a procedure that has not happened to me before.
- We initially had a booking request by email, which no one bothered to answer. I consider this as insufficient service.
- When I asked additional questions to the person at the reception, he was very arrogant and finally told me "I cannot talk to you, I have more important work to do" -- wow, what a great response.
- My personal suggestion is: if you look for a hotel in Berat, try Hotel Mangalemi. We initially tried to book it but it was already full, and had then dinner there and were served very well there.

This was, by far, the nicest and most elegant hotel we found in three weeks of travel in Albania. It is just about a year old and is a bright, cheery, immaculately clean property. Breakfast is included and it is a great buffet served on the roof-top terrace. The location is about three blocks from where the long distance buses drop off and pick-up and you can really walk most places in Berat without any difficulty. The staff (in particular, Pirro, who checked us in and handled breakfast each morning) was extremely helpful. Room was spacious and very comfortable and the bathroom was a real bathroom--a real shower and everything worked without leaks! We have used booking.com in many countries of the world and this is the nicest property we have found anywhere. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Berat.

Our stay in White City was amazing. We didn't even want to leave. We arrived very late at night (drive from Tirana was terrible - the roads aren't the best) and the receptionist was waiting outside. When we left our car he asked me by my name and said he was expecting me. He suggested to park the car at the spot for the hotel guests because in the morning from 8am the parking is not allowed. Showed us to our room and we were amazed - the room was huge, on the top floor and had the view of the old city. The cable was so diverse - they had so many channels on all the languages you can think of. But the best thing was the breakfast! It was quite a spread: it felt as if we were visiting some local family, the receptionist prepared us 2 cappucinos and even packed us some leftovers for the road (we were headed to Dhermi so he knew we will be hitting the road). He spoke about himself and told us what's going on in the area. This was the best hotel we stayed in Albania. We were told that it is always fully booked because there is an oil construction somewhere close and it is booked by business travellers for long term. We even had a message from the owner at some point that due to syncing conflict with booking.com they saw our reservation late when they already gave away the room but then they did something to accommodate our booking and they texted us on the phone.

Room Tip: Top floor is the best!
