Regency Hotel Albania
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Korce
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We pulled into Korce shortly after dark with no reservations for a place to stay. We were actually looking for another hotel we had researched online, but found the Regency first. Because we were tired and needed to get the kids to bed we decided to investigate the Regency. I had read the reviews previously posted here. The reception hostess was friendly and took me upstairs to view some rooms. If it hadn't been so late, we might have gone on to look for the other hotel (mainly because the price seemed high), but in the end decided to stay.
Pluses: they had a suite that slept our family of 4 (not always easy to come by), wall-to-wall carpeting, a bathtub with sliding glass door enclosure, curbside parking next to the front door.
Minuses: starchy/scratchy linens, uninspiring decor

We hadn't eaten yet and the reception desk was kind enough to call in a pizza order for us and have it delivered to our room. At 900 lek, the price for the pizza was almost double what we pay in Tirana for the same pizza, but it was really good.

To save 10 euros on the price of the room, we chose not to eat breakfast, so I cannot comment on that detail.

Spent a night her after leaving Macedonia.
Good reception staff and cleaners buzzing around but the place itself is tired . My room was large , something akin to a basketball court ,, with the same voluminous bathroom ,,
Facilities are scant , with some of the weakest wifi ,,, nevermind having line of sight to the router ,, I need to be able to reach out and touch it .

Breakfast , again , not good.

The hotel is small, staff is friendly, breakfast is surprisingly good, and the staff helpful in providing things we asked for.
The room is small, dark, poor air-conditioning and feels very stuffy. The bathroom is a decent size. For just one night, it was bearable Wifi was possible only at the lobby.
There's no parking place.

We were booked into here on a group tour- it's apparently the best in the area. I wasn't expecting too much and wasn't disappointed. We booked a suite which was spacious, but had tired furnishings, inefficient aircon, and erratic hot water supply. The bed was comfortable however, and the breakfast was the best we had in Albania with good coffee, bread and fresh fruit.

Room Tip: Some rooms are very small but the suite was spacious.

Regency Hotel is owned from an Albanian-American, but it is not very American in terms of management and quality and accuracy of services, although it is not bad at all for a province such as Korça. The hotel is a bit expensive, according to my opinion, just because of the combination of what you pay with what you get. Breakfast is included and it is nice if compared to the other hotels of the area. The location is very good: right on the centre, although there is no typical Korça panorama in this area.

Room Tip: Suites are bigger, because all other rooms seem to be a bit small. The bathroom of the single rooms...

I cannot see how this hotel has gotten so many good reviews, unless they are family and friends who are trying to sucker in unsuspecting tourists. This hotel was the worst hotel during our whole trip, by far (the other ones were all so much better while most of them were cheaper). The room was unattractive with an unpleasant view. The expiration date of the soap in the shower was from several months before (which is quite difficult to do with soap but this hotel succeeded in doing so - congratulation!!). The curtain to the shower was of really bad quality. The breakfast was parsimonious, and even not taking that into account, had to be the worst breakfast we have ever had in all of our trips in any country we've been to.

We looked around the town to check out other hotels and there were several which were around the same price (even a little less) which seemed much better.

Avoid going there at all costs (unless if it floats your boat to pay a lot for bad service (we live in a diverse world)). But it is a great place however to advise to your worst enemy.

We were on a month-long tour of The Adriatic and Albania/Macedonia with Adventures Abroad. We stayed here two nights and we were quite surprised when we walked into our room. It was large with two comfortable chairs to sit on - a luxury we had not had during our long tour. The reading lights by the beds were modern and we had no trouble reading. Korce is a sad city which is trying to recover from the over 40 years of Enver Hoxa's dictatorship. We had no complaints about The Regency. The staff was pleasant. It was cold and rainy during our 2-day stay and my husband was sick. He didn't tour one afternoon and was content to stay in the room which is more than he can say about a lot of the rooms we've been in on our many adventures. We had dinner at the hotel our first night and it was fine, the staff anxious to please.
