Good hotels are not difficult to find in Adler, but good ones that admit foreigners for more than a day and/or doesn’t require a minimum of a week’s stay are not easy to find. I had originally planned to stay at the Fregat Hotel next door but the minimum one-week stay made it impossible. The Ayum, meanwhile, said it was fine to stay for a night or more and as long as I did the registration with the local police if I wanted to stay for long, and they’d have no problem.
I only stayed for one night in the end as the Ayum is quite expensive – but its good amenities, comfortable rooms and modern décor make it worth the money (2800 roubles a night for one person in a double-room bed and breakfast). (The hotel right next door – not the Fregat and whose name I do not know – is less glamorous but is equally comfortable and costs 800 roubles less in a twin-room as long as I agreed to stay for one night only because otherwise the owner would worry about registration).
My bedroom had a nice double-bed (two singles parked together), quiet air-con, small fridge, safety box, cable TV (local channels) and a nice-sized balcony for hanging out the washing. The bathroom was great: powerful shower with hot water 24-hours a daty, hair dryers and was very clean.
The breakfast had a good range of cheese, cold-cuts, porridge, eggs (hot and cold), bread, cold and hot drinks etc. Free wi-fi available in the (small) reception area, and of course, pools and other things like that to entertain the kids within the vicinity. Otherwise, the main ‘beach’ and promenade are about five minutes’ walk away. All of these hotels are about a 10-minute ride away by bus to the train station.
The staff – or younger members anyway – speaks pretty good English, which is nice for this part of the world. In my opinion, it’s not a particularly interesting region and people tend to go there to relax, swim, eat and drink.
