I feel really bad writing this review as I think the hotel is trying to be good and is probably acceptable to many travellers. The rooms are extremely cheap, so keep that in mind. The room was booked for us through an agent in Tirana.
The hotel feels a bit grubby and on one side looks out onto the polluted Osum River. Usually I would like to stay riverside, however this river has gone through some tough times due to propensity for rubbish being dumped all over the place.
The room was basic and mostly clean. The bathroom was small, which is fine. It has one of the showers without a shower curtain, so we had trouble keeping the water from going everywhere.
We smelt a lot of cigarette smoke throughout the hotel.
There is a large restaurant upstairs, whcih is manned by and frequented by local teenagers. One morning there was a party, and the restaurant turned into a pumping daytime nightclub, with insanely loud music. I had icecream a couple of times there and enjoyed it looking out to the berat old town view.
So basic fine accomodation for a cheap night. Plus the hotel is handy walking distance to the old town.
