We loved Vlore, which is to some extent free from the tackiness of Durres and Saranda, and this no-nonsense hotel certainly helped enhance our experience.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We loved Vlore, which is to some extent free from the tackiness of Durres and Saranda, and this no-nonsense hotel certainly helped enhance our experience. It is wonderfully centrally located in town (right in Flag Square, where the Albanian Republic was declared, marked by an impressive monument) and easy to find. Buses to Tirana are a couple of blocks away in one direction; to other parts of Albania, a couple of blocks in the other direction.
Although there is a steep flight of stairs to get up to reception the cheerful, English-speaking manager carried our bags up for us. The room was functional but perfect, with good airconditioning, beds and a fridge. Toilet, bidet and shower all worked well and the room was quiet and comfortable.
There is no restaurant as such, but we were directed to an inexpensive one nearby. Breakfast, however, is served on the premises (there is also a bar) and was perfectly satisfactory, with excellent Italian coffee (no mountain tea or cafe Turke, which we had grown used to).
For us, this was the perfect base to explore the city, with bureaux de change next door, interesting sights nearby, a useful location for transport links and just a fifteen minute walk to the beach. Thoroughly recommended.
