“'Panorama' worthy of the name”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

We arrived in Tirana airport close to midnight, and took a taxi to Krujë. The nightwatchman let us in, and we crashed pretty much immediately, to wake up to a stunning view of the old fortress of Krujë. Our family room had comfortable beds, a good bathroom, and a big balcony. Breakfast in the restaurant was good, with friendly service. When our oldest daughter had a little accident, slipping and falling down while racing her sister down the stairs, the owner was there with icepacks, and couldn't have been friendlier. It happened well into our dinner (which was excellent), and the staff just brought our things up to finish in our room - plus coffees. Great stay.

Stayed in the new section, we arrived around 2am but were well recieved. The view of the fortress is spectacular, and the amenities were quite comfortable. Note that there is no elevator, which was fine for us, but not for handicapped guests. The restaurant is a popular wedding venue, so if you are up for the sound of joyous celebration late into the night, with great live Albanian music and fireworks right outside, this is for you. And weddings are happening every night of the week. We were fine with this, but it might not be great for a light sleeper.

Breakfast was adequate, served in the hotel downstairs, a bit scanty for vegetarians. Staff is friendly, and the parking is secure.

The location is unsurpassed, and we enjoyed a couple of days in Kruje.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the fortress

We opted for the 'new' rooms which was about 10-15EUR more than the 'old' hotel. both types have a fantastic view but we were glad for the added comfort after a rough trip to that point. it is the only proper hotel in kruje...and is expanding... but its great value for money. we had breakfast, lunch and supper there...all great. staff were so helpful and friendly; Roland when managing our booking and Olysie when advising us for our onward trip. His english and sense of humour were fantastic! Kruje itself is small and charming. i imagine driving in mid-summer with all the tourists must be hectic.

Large and clean rooms. nice bathroom, super balcony with fantastic view.
Good beds, friendly staff.
The new part of the hotel is still under construction
A lot of locals hanging around the restaurant drinking coffee makes it kind of authentic

This hotel has a wonderful location and the views from the baclonies really are panoramic. When we arrived the construction noise was very loud but work stopped in the late afternoon and started again at a reasonable time in the morning. The new rooms are very high quality with modern fixtures and fittings; the shower was in a proper cubicle unlike many in other hotels visited. The hotel is very close to the castle and the bazaar which makes visiting easy. The resaurant was a bit hard to find because of the construction works but the food quality was good and the outside terrace has lovely views over the surrounding area.

Room Tip: The new rooms with a balcony are probably the best ones to go for.

In May (17th) we stayed one night in the Panorama hotel. It was very quiet, we have seen almost no other (foreign) tourists. We stayed in room 101, in the new part of the hotel. Next to the old part of the building (with some older rooms, a bar and a good restaurant), a new hotel is under construction. We could park our car free of charge in a garage under the building and were welcomed very heartily by the owner. When we stayed, only a few new rooms were just opened. These rooms have good beds, a decent bathroom and a balcony with a magnificent view of the castle of Kruja. Although the new rooms cost a few euro’s more, we would advise to book the new ones. (One small thing we didn’t like about the room was the lack of sufficient light and the very cool white color of the light). We also have seen other hotels in Kruja, but the Panorama has the best location. When you leave the hotel, you walk into the old bazar and to the castle. Finally, when you are by rental car, it is a short (30min) and easy drive from Kruja to the airport.
