Hotel Alvero
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Permet
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Permet was the best surprise of our 2 week independent tour of Albania. It is a clean small town nestled in a beautiful valley with snow capped mountains around as a backdrop. The new and modern Alvero Hotel is right on the main square but is on the river side of the street. Out room in the back was super clean, quiet, very space age bathroom and had a separate sitting area with lovely views of the valley, the river below and the "city rock". The lady manager spoke excellent English and was very friendly and helpful in providing directions to visit an exquisite old Ottoman bridge near the thermal spring of Benje. Excellent breakfast. The nearby Antogenea Restaurant was a good choice for the evening meal. We were very glad that we stayed in this inland "off-the-path" town and would have liked to have spent another night there.

I'm from America and was born in Albania; My mother wanted to show me the city of Permet (my grandmother's city) and I really expected very little from this city in the mountains and far less from the hotels there; BOY WAS I EVER WRONG. Hotel Alvero is very modern, small-ish rooms but perfect for the amount of time we were there (about a week). The owners are AMAZING and kind people who speak English and French in addition to Albanian. I loved my stay at Alvero! Running water, electricity, etc. and smack in the middle of the city. I highly recommend Alvero and Permeti has become my favorite city :) <3

Alvero hotel (3*) is the first one to see when you arrive to the small city of Permet. It stand right on the main squaer and with beautiful view of the river below. The old person in the reception didn't speak English, but was very helpful. We met the manageress next morning and she was nice and spoke English. Rooms were clean, airconndition work and there were hot water. Location is great with many bars and resturants in and near the squaer. It was a comfurtable and friendly place in a remote corner of Albania.

This hotel has a great feel about it. I wasnt expecting to like Permet but I loved it and I loved the hotel in the same way. It was bright crisp and clean with an affluemt feel. The shower bed and room were all very good and the air con worked well. We had a room at the front with good views but a saturday wedding made it a bit noisier on one night. Rooms at the back would also have good views and be quieter. The owners were absoloutely brilliant. They didnt just arrange a bus to Benja, they took us to the bus and made sure he dropped us off at the hotel on his return! The garden terrace is superb for an evening drink and breakfast. A great hotel. Recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms great but an occasional noisy night might be quieter at the back. Higher = good views but...

We had a nice room with tv, airco, small balcony overlooking the river, clean bathroom. Don't expect a homely atmosphere: it is a modern style hotel, kept spotlessly clean with the breakast room on the top floor. The hotel is situated in the middle of the town center but there is no street noise at all.
We had a nice chat with the extremely friendly manager who speaks very good french and his wife speaks good english. He made sure we had a breakast pack because we had to leave very early. He also gave us very good info on the things to visit and do in Permeti.
We didn't make a reservation in advance as it was a last minute decision to go to Permeti, but it was worth the trip and hotel Alvero was one of the reasons!

Our group was about 12 people, we stayed in for 6 days, my first cousin was getting married. Alvero hotel made all the difference with an amazing hospitality, it was super clean, quiet, extremely friendly personnel. We were so comfortable and welcome there we did not want to leave, traveling from Canada to Permeti (small gorgeous place to visit) has left me mesmerized & for sure will go back, my recommendation for is place is the way to go
