the location is unbeatable in the centre. but there it stops. when i arrived after many mails there was no room available yes they did upgrade me to a so called better room on the fourth floor, and the room was good enough but the people at the reception they might as well not exist. they do not answer your questions, they dont know the most elementary things about places or how to get there, and if they give you info it's with a sneer as if they are doing you a great favour. the same attitude have i found all over odessa so it's nothing special . i wanted to go to the bus station and there supposed to be a phantomatic bus nr. 124 who nobody knows where it stops. the hotel is well mantained but the personel is hopeless.

I stayed in Hotel Deribas for 10 days in August in Odessa. Hotel Deribas has an excellent location, just round the corner from the main street of Odessa, which is a pedestrian area full bars/restuarants/café`s, also the City Gardens are just across the street, and the Opera House is a 5 miniute walk. So the location is superb! My room was more like a mini apartment, spacious, modern, and clean. The room was cleaned daily to a good standard and staff where pleasant and helpful. There is no sign outside that says Hotel Deribas , its really a mini-hotel with a reception desk a few flights up, so more like mini-apartments. I would stay there again.

This hotel (aka Deribas Appts.) is located in famous Deribaskovskaya Str and absolutely perfect for exploring Odessa city. Inspite of renovation works of the building`s facade we spent peaceful and satisfying two days. I could imagine to stay much longer. The rooms (with A/C and flat screen TV) were tasteful and extremely clean, the staff very friendly and helpful - speaking English well. They organized Taxi transfer to the airport (very good price). The room rates are moderate.The only fact one might complain about: there are only TV-channels in Russian/Ukrainian. At least 1 english program would have been nice ... but Wi-Fi is available. There is no lift - but the stairs are ok as there are only ground, first and second floor.

These are apartments with check-in counter rather than a real hotel - no room service, no restaurant on site, but there's a minibar in the room and you can get a voucher to a local eatery nearby (I wouldn't know the reason for this).
Apartments seem to be more or less recently (Feb 2013) refurbished, they are spacious and clean. The biggest "pro" is the location - in the middle of everything, near the city park, 10 minutes' walk to the Potemkin Stairs and with plenty of restaurants and cafes all around. Of course this means there's significant night life around, especially on weekends, which is both good (many places to hang out) and bad (you'll hear some music from the street in your room in the middle of the night).

The only significant drawback in this place is that the apartments are located on top floors on an old building, with rather steep stairs and no lift. It's a "no way" if you're on a wheelchair and causes some issues if you're traveling with a kid in a pram (which we did).

Taxi to/from the airport should be around 50-60 hryvnas.

If you're in Odessa for the beaches - this is probable not quite a right choice for you. But if you want to be right there in the downtown, on the famous street Deribasovskaya, in the middle of everything - this is perrrfect. It's not too expensive, so our expectations were not very high, but it was wonderful. Totally worth the money. Great room, clean and rennovated, the bathroom is also very clean, the bed is quite comfy. If you're lucky enough you'll get the view of Deribasovskaya and the City Park. On the other hand this may be an issue for some people - it maybe noisy till late at night, but I enjoy it!
It's not a hotel in a strict sense of the word, more like apartments. You'll be surprised not to see the reception desk right when you enter the building - you have to go upstairs (2nd floor I think) to check in. The staff was very friendly, they let us leave our luggage and get changed since we arrived very early in the morning, well before the check-in time.
AC in the room and wonderful shower and bathroom in general are certainly a HUGE plus to this hotel - usually you'd get something very Soviet style for this price in this location.

Room Tip: You will have to leave a 100 hrivnya (~20 USD) deposit for the key when you check in, which will be...

Been there in December 2011. Liked everything, except the staff. Let's start with some pros and cons:

Pros:
- Location. 30 seconds walk to Deribasovskaya street.
- Cleanliness.
- Price (I've paid 250 Hrivnya for 1 Night. It was the promo price, usual is 350, but that's cheap too)
- Fast Internet access. Really fast.

Cons:
- Small Room (there is no table, it's good for 1-2 night stay, but you won't be able to work there)
- A little noisy since it is located near to the famous green building that is being built on Deribasovskaya.

I'd recommend this Hotel for a short-term stay in Odessa. Everything you might need is located nearby. Rooms are quite clean and are equipped with everything you need. Girls at the reception are not very friendly, but that should not be a problem.

Room Tip: 306 is good. I'd recommend a room at the opposite side of corridor.

Nice room although a little small but was good enough.
Very good location although took us a while to find the entrance. Building work was being carried out next door and my room over looked this but the double glazing stopped alot of the noise.
One of the receptionists was very friendly, can't say the same about the others but then all Ukrainians seemed a little miserable.
Overall a nice place to stay.
