“Cheap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

We got a room without window. Their walls are made of paper and we heard snoring from other rooms... There are very tiny shower and wc, TV and fridge. Mattress was fine. Synthetic sheets were uncomfy.

But we paid just $15 for *double-room* :) You won't find cheaper place for 1 night in Odessa anyway. And it's close to railway station.

I have stayed in some tiny, horrible hotels in my life, including many absolutely horrid places in India. And mostly I don't mind because I don't travel for hotel experiences. But I felt I needed to say a few things about this place. The location is okay, near to the train station and a local bus station and close enough to the sights -- you can walk to the for some reason famous Potemkin steps in like 20 minutes.

But this is tiny, smelly, horrid room. You have no control over the AC. It is loud, smells like mold and there is barely room to stand up without banging a shin or stubbing a toe. Other guests are quite loud, walls are quite thin. I booked a "windowless room" and understood this mean I would get a windowless room, and i have stayed in windowless rooms in Sofia, KL and places in India, but this place! Really horrible. DON'T STAY HERE.

I'm sure the guys in Gitmo have bigger rooms.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

I perused the other reviews of this hotel, and see many that were negative. That's really too bad, because I think there should be more hotels like this in more places, like in the USA! Sadly, that business model would never work in the West. I enjoyed it though, and will remember the experience forever. Really, how often do you get the stay in an oversized broom closet? Having stayed here, I now have the satisfaction of saving a few bucks, and knowing I have what it takes to get comfortable in such a small space. If you're traveling alone and just need to rest, what more do you need? It's probably the cheapest place to stay other than hostels where you get your own private room. You won't find anything cheaper with a private room at a regular hotel, I can guarantee that.

A/C, Wi-Fi, TV, all that is included. The place is about as wide as two twin bed mattresses next to each other. You can almost touch both side walls with each hand at the same time. The depth of the place is about 75 cm longer than a twin bed. Small? Oh yeah. But consider sleeping on a 15-hour plane ride, in an economy seat. If you can pull that off, then you'll be just fine here. The place was clean, the water was hot, and everything worked as it should. By the way, I did not see any indicators of the place being used as a place of promiscuity, if you know what I mean. Single traveler? Check it out!

Room Tip: As far as know, all the rooms are the same size, and none of them have windows. Any will do.

Tokyo Star offers basic and cheap accommodation only 200 m from the railway and bus station.

Rooms are very small but they have private bathrooms Some rooms have no window and those are the best price. Other two tipes differ with it's size and prices.

Because of such a small size of rooms and bathrooms where walls seems to be made of paper I do not recomend to share such a room with someone you do't know very well.

Recepion works 24h. There is internet conection and small caffe in the mail hall. Unfortunatelly service is very poor and unnice.

For short stay of 1-2 nights it is ok, especially if you are fed up with dormitory rooms in hostels (the prices are nearly the same) and need central location.

Room Tip: just try different to have a look at all rooms they offer as they differ very much

We crashed at the Tokyo Star against the advice of our Ukrainian friends. I needed to be located near the train station so we decided to stay at the Tokyo Star. The location and the price is the best part about this place. The rooms are tiny and its not the cleanest place in the world. But, if all you need is a place to sleep and a shower, then this is your place. The ladies up on the 2nd floor will also do your laundry for a few bucks. I'd stay here again, but I don't think I could do more than 2 nights. It is great to be able to walk right to the train station.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor

It is a really budget hotel with no extra services. It is rather for a short visit because all rooms are very small. There are different kind of rooms: I have seen a room for two and for four. You could also choose a room with a window and without a window. Those with windows were more expensive (but it was few euros more). All rooms have a bathroom. Sometimes when you open the door to your room you may first enter to a bathroom and then you have a room. I have a room with one bed for two and there was no door between the bathroom and the room - this option is ok only for couples. There was a tv set and a fridge in the room. The room was clean.

There is also a small shop inside the hotel. The reception staff was not friendly and hardly speaks English. It is not possible to check in earlier without extra money. I had no reservation and get to the hotel as a walk - in and we paid around 18 Euro per room. It was a good price. It is really centrally located - nead the main railway station.
