This is the only chain hotel in Albania and considering the lack of a history of 5 star hotels- surprizingly good and high standards. I think the best option and western standards.
It is situated about 20 mins drive from the airport and max 10 mins walk to the centre of the town.
Rooms are well decorated, not too exciting in decor maybe but well equpped. comfy bed, quiet, only small issue was the chair by the desk- much too low and not all lighting worked. Some rooms overlook the main football stadium and the city centre, others on to the main park which is just at the back of the hotel.
Staff on the whole are very good and helpful. Reception was a bit hit and miss tho.,not all scoring marks re c/s and some did not know how to smile.
Food in restaurants was good for the price but fairly basic,
The club level lounge was very good- fresh juices and hot drinks most of the day and snacks and drinks (wine etc) and canapes included in the evening. Food a bit basic but again adequate and for breakfast you can order an egg dish. Staff working in the lounge were EXCELLENT..
2 pools, a very good and large gym, well equipped, A privately run Thai massage centre- good massage, reasonable price.
Avis on the ground floor also worth a mention. The Avis licensee also has a travel/tour company so many of the drivers are also guides and have superior knowledge. You can also book a tour with a driver and a local guide at the destination via them and worth doing so.
