TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palma Berat
This is a new hotel on the banks of the River Osum, but it isn't sterile as so many new properties are. It is simple, but has style and people working here who care that things are done properly. The rooms have great river views. An easy walk into town and up to the castle. Recommended!

One became Mount Tomorr and the other the opposing Mount Shpirag. The woman was overcome with grief at the loss of ...
... was involved when seeing the attractions. After taking a nap after breakfast to recover from the coach travel, we took a small walk along the promenade (which they were in the middle of digging up and repaving, but no worries, just plough straight through the middle! Oh, and, mind that huge hole there. Oh and look out for that pile of bricks....) We returned to the hostel that afternoon and then ventured to the castle of Berat. Little did we know it was a hidden village within ...
... a seat. There are bags and tyres in the back this time as well. Everything goes well including stopping at an Autogrill for all of us to fuel up. I get out at Fier which is not the most scenic and see a furgon for Berat straight away. The driver speaks some English.
I feel real safe in this one. The driver has a cross, Saint Christopher medal and a horseshoe hanging from the ceiling so surely that is enough. And it is, we arrive safely. The road from Fier to Berat is ...
