The Hotel Mangalem, Berat, Albania

I promised to show you our Hotel in Berat, Albania. This is the Mangalem Hotel in the historic district, on the main street, so to speak. It is across the street from the Infopoint, where you can sign up for tours,  pick up your audioguides and buy your postcards, all in one stop. First, some photos of the neighborhood……….
