“Valona ...so far away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2009

I've been to Vlore on international folk festival in May, i traveld in a group and was participating in festival.
If you like balkan with a mixture of Italian and spanish coast than it's the place for you.
You can see beautifull beaches on the one side and big unfinished hotel buildings on the other.

The food is good, mostly italian food is served with lots of vegetables.
If you decide to go out in the evening there are a lots of beach clubs.
Hotel "New York" where I stayed in is 3 star hotel, it has an opend swimming pool wich is not cleaned daily, but ok. there is a beach near by, few meters from hotel, wich is clean and verry nice. Hotel stuff doesn't speak english, or bearley speaks. Rooms are ok, but prefer the ones with a see view.
All in all it is verry interesting and would recomend to visit to any openminded person willing to explore.

Officially 4* but in reality more 2*-3*.

Unless you really have to stay in the centre of town (noisy, busy, dusty) the Hotel New York is your best bet. It's efficiently run, although the housekeeping and maintenance can go a bit awry from time to time. Receptionists speak passable English and will change money with a bit of notice. The rooms are adequately furnished with satellite TV including BBC World and Aljazeera in English. The rooms with the sea view have a balcony and are to be preferred.

The roof-top pool is fine, though there are no depth markings and is unsupervised. There is a small, shallow, separate children's area with a central fountain. Although the pool is officially open from 10am until 6pm, access is rarely possible before 10.45am as the pool is cleaned each day from 10am. If you intend using a sunbed, be sure to be on it as soon after 10am as possible as the maintenance man removes unoccupied sunbeds if they are required on the small beach across the road. Leaving a towel on your bed is no safeguard against the bed being relocated.

Although there is no catering at the pool during the day, the area is tranformed into a bustling pizzeria in the evening, serving excellent thin-crust pizzas (but no salads, even though advertised) at around the £2.50 - £3 mark.

The ground floor restaurant provides a substantial inclusive breakfast and in the evening serves excellent mainly Italian-style fare at very reasonable prices. The Albanain wine available is good value and very drinkable.

There is a bar extending across the road. Drinks may also be had on the terrace outside the dining room. Ice creams and further bar facilities can be found at roadside tables.

The staff are friendly.

But all the while bear in mind that Albania is still very much a developing tourist destination and that local facilities are restricted and that the quality of the town's infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired.

  • Liked — It was out of town
  • Disliked — It was in Albania
