Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We check in at hotel empire on the 2nd September. We had an outstanding experience. Staff is amazing rooms are very clean. The hotel is on the heart of city centre.
You have got all inclusive options. Staff speak English and they all very helpful with anything that you need.
Hotel is 3 minutes distance to beach and all inclusive drinks are available on the beach with free charge of beach entry.
Food was delicious and our rooms get cleaned everyday and provided free clean towels everyday.
Would 100% recommend this place to stay a

Thank you everyone for making our stay great and easy

From experience in other luxury hotels I would say that this hotel was legendary. The hotel itself is beautiful. The hotel lobby, dining areas and bars are simply lovely. The receptionists were very kind and always attentive. MINA made us feel so welcome, she was the friendliest person out there and made an effort to know our names, come and say hello in the morning, she made the trip so enjoyable and made an amazing stay

I was staying at Empire Hotel for five days. The staff was amaizing and me with my friends really enjoyed every time we spent.
The food was delicious and the roof top pool has an amaizing view. The room was cleaned every day. Definetly we will be back

My fiancée and I visited this hotel early this September. From the photos we thought this hotel would be great. The hotel room we were staying in was small and directly under the rooftop pool. One day someone broke the railing in the pool and hotel staff was fixing it during the night so we barely got any sleep. From the bathroom there is a disgusting smell coming. The smell is really really bad. The cleaning ladies for a whole week we stayed there didn’t even wash the floors in the bathroom, nothing I don’t know if that’s normal in Albania but not really acceptable. They mostly only did the bed, the floors in the rooms were spot mopped. The pool was ok, small but clean however sun beds have seen better days and some of them were moldy. We bought the all inclusive package however I strongly suggest not to get it. The alcoholic drinks were such bad quality. We also didn’t get battled water in our hotel. The “private” beach is located about 300m away from the hotel, there is also located the hotel restaurant where for the food package we had to go for every meal except for the breakfast. A bit confusing for us. The food options were limited. Nearly everyday the same type of food. The beach is very dirty itself, so much trash it’s ridiculous. The sun beds at the beach same quality as in the rooftop pool. The 4 stars the hotel has has to be some kind of joke. It deserves maybe 2 at the most.

Stay away from this hotel! This was the worst hotel experience we have ever had. First of all the room we got was not as described when we booked. We booked a family room that should have 2 bedrooms, but there was only One bedroom and another room with 2 beds. There where no table and chairs and the balcony was just a joke.
When we checked in the room was very dirty , all over, also the bed linen. When we complained the next morning they did not even bother to clean it, and after 8 hours at the beach we came back to the same filthy dirty room. The Staff was rude and what the owners would compensate us was one free lunch 🤬

The whole family was extremely disapointed and we left after 2 of our 7 nights - it was just awful.

It seems that they try to save money on every part in their business, and the included breakfast was the worst we have ever had on a hotel. It is a shame that they Are allowed to rate this crap as a 4-star hotel.
We noticed that almost every of the other guests also complained about some things about their stay. Do yourself a favor and do not book a stay at this 1-star hotel.
The only positive thing we have to say is that the beach bar is decent. (But the beach restaurant was as crappy as all the rest)

After reading all those nice comments here about this hotel I decided to book a room here. The hotel looked beautiful outside but the most interesting started inside. First you have to pay 30 euros if you want to check in before 14.00. Reception and hall looks quite nice. But when we came into the room we were shocked, the smell from the bathroom was terrible! The room was very dirty we used even desinfektion on furnitures cause we were afraid to touch something, there were no bedsheets for my daughter, no safe, glasses for water and even no toilet paper! We were so tired after trip but I had to search after staff to bring everything missing. Food there is another issue, it was terrible and even if we had all inclusive , most of the time we ate at the restaurants in the city. Good that prices in Albania are not so high. Once I wanted to order tea but I had to pay for it! Alcohol was for free ( very low quality alcohol) but you had to pay for tea even though we had all inclusive. Some of workers were nice but some of them were quite ill-tempered. Hotels beach was ok, comfortable beds and very nice guy who was working there. But sea was dirty there and the beach as well.
So think before booking this hotel!

This was a very good hotel to stay and do the vacation, starting from the receptionists,bar (especially Eliano at the poolbar) and kitchen staff everyone were very kind and professional. Interior of the hotel was very royal design so if that’s your preference it’s the best choice in Durres. Last but not least the food was always fresh and very tasty.
Thank you!

Hotel room was a bit small with the extra bed. Hotel had access to the beach but the beach was a few blocks away. The bed was very hard and it was challenging crossing the road to the beach. The attendants/staff were excellent and very attentive to all our needs. Free parking was available and monitored by camera. Breakfast was excellent. The beach and main road has many restaurants to choose from. Noted plenty of hot water in the morning but not much in the evening.

I was with my friends in this hotel,we really had a very good experience. The room was pretty cool. The food was amazing and fresh. I have no words for service the staff they were very friendly and helpful,they do a lot of jokes in type of a way they made our vacations more good and the best thing was they give us positivity they didnt look bored or tired in anytime 👏.
