This s is an old hotel t (1827), that has a perfect location on a grand seaside boulevard, which is a limited traffic zone. It's been refurbished by someone with an excellent design sense but retains the charm. There are may fine features, such as the grand lobby, the sizable rooms and the exceptional fitness club, but for me the best single feature is the outdoor patio for dining, just off the lobby. And I enjoyed the little museum in the main hallway of the third floor, where there are mementos of the people who stayed there: Robert Louis Stevenson, Checkov, William Saroyan and George Simenon just to name a few. What makes it irresistible is the price -- about $40 a night, including breakfast and health club. That may be because of the troubles in Ukraine and Odessa in particular. No matter: you'll be well cared for here.

Room Tip: Seaside may be a little noisier than facing the courtyard, for here's music and sometimes commot...

We always wanted to visit Odessa primarily to see the Potemkin Steps and the Opera. This hotel was ideally situated to do both being around the corner from the Opera and across the promenade from the Potemkin Steps and the centre of Odessa was within minutes walking.
The hotel itself is a reminder of the ambience enjoyed by the wealthy last century, with a beautiful marble staircase, stained glass windows and magnificent chandeliers. Our room overlooked the courtyard and was very spacious, comfortable and quiet. The service was all you could expect. We would perhaps have liked a little more selection at breakfast.
The one downside was that it seemed a long trek from the only lift down corridors to our room, but the walls were filled with interest including photos from "Battleship Potemkin".
There are many good restaurants in Odessa, but we loved the Armenian Restaurant where the food and service were excellent and visited a few times during our stay.

This hotel could be your choice when the summer season is off. It is centrally located, close to main local attractions such as theatre, Deribasovskaya street and Odessa walks. If you are planning to spend your time on the beach, it is better to find a hotel in Arcadia. This hotel is moderately priced compared to other hotels of the same category. The room is clean with all necessities in it. Plus, I got a gorgeous view from my window. Unfortunately I never tried the food there.

The best thing I can say about this place is the location. It is close to the Opera and Ballet, and pretty much everything else of interest in the City Center. The lobby is really nice, but as you climb the sais, it progressively gets worse until you get to your room. This hotel is in dire need of renovating. The service was good, but the décor needs some serious updating.

Very beautiful interiors with retro details and portraits of famous visitors. Service was nice and kitchen is very good and reasonable priced. Absolutely perfect location. My windows faced sea and the port with central Primorskiy Boulevard.

The frontage, lobby and public areas are very attractive, and just the kind of place to stay when visiting Odessa. However, the rooms are very hit and miss. A group of us visited on business, all paying the same rate, some got stunning rooms, with front vista’s, some got pokey little rooms, of well below average standing. Even worse the 4th floor is not served by the lift, and can only be accessed by traipsing to the back of the 3rd floor, and then hiking up some very wobbly stairs. Would recommend it as a place to stay, but do not get palmed off with a sub-standard room (like I did), especially if the room number starts with a ‘4’.

Room Tip: Beware the number 4.

If you're not planning to spend time on a local beach, you won't find a better choice for a short stay in Odessa. The hotel is close to Deribasovskaya, the most advertised street in Odessa, and many other local attractions. I had enough space in my room, which was cleaned on a daily basis. Staff people were friendly enough comparing to many other places I had previously visited in Ukraine.
