dpa After a poor experience in Berat in a guest house in the same price category, we were fearing the worst with this one. We needn't have. Accommodation is in a proper hotel located in a prominent building up the hill at Gjirokaster, near the castle and above the quaint old streets. Although we booked a basic room it had comfortable beds, a good bathroom and air conditioning (the superior rooms have balconies and tremendous views). Reasonably priced restaurant and generous breakfast (eggs, cheese, beignets, mountain tea). Superb location, though without a car you'll need a taxi (400 lek) for ongoing transport at the Ora e Lumit, which is too far to walk. Slightly terse but really very friendly and helpful manager who can speak several languages. Thoroughly recommended. It even has a pet dog which looks like a lion.
