I'd like to add my vote to the others on the list. The Koklen is a small boutique hotel which offers an exceptionally high standard of comfort and service. Hotel staff in the Ukraine can be a bit offhand sometimes- but not at the Koklen.The smiles and welcome were genuine and nothing was too much trouble throughout our two day stay. Small bowls of jam or honey appeared like magic as we sipped our tea from the samovar in the lobby. The room was gorgeous and the bathroom luxurious. Breakfast was great and our meal in the Sofia restaurant was terrific and very reasonably priced. This hotel is within easy walking distance of most of the main sights and in an interesting part of town. You might be able to find something cheaper in Odessa- but you won't find anything better. All in all this hotel is a real pearl.
