“Mess”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

Good luck if you don't speak Russian or Ukrainian. No signage and long hopeless lines to get tickets - presuming you can figure out which line to stand in. Recommended for a true "Soviet' cliche.

“Interesting architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

If you are interested in architecture, try to visit this building. Yes, in fact its regular train station, but when you will think about it like about monument, it is really interesting. I highly recommended went at night to the platforms and than look back to the railway station – because of lighting and Ukraine flag at the top it is grand view. Specially when you come to Odessa with a train and this is your first impress from the city.

“Everythin matching even at 4 am”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

It is a rather safe station even if you arrive with the early morning train from Simferopol, (paid) guarded waiting room, clean toilets, café open, so all in all rather pleasant experience

“Busy”

Very strange location for platform 10, walk out of the station, and head down towards a small platform. Impossible to find without asking staff!

“An architectural gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

We regularly use trains when we travel around Europe & some are very shabby & unwelcoming, and some are wonderful works of architecture. We arrived into Odessa on a night train from Lviv at about 08.30. The place was buzzing with travellers. We used the toilets and found them quite clean. They ate the "squatting type" also there are showers and wash-hand basins.
When we caught the night train from Odessa to Kiev, we arrived in plenty of time. There was a volumenous waiting room, which had a television & the opportunity to buy coffee & refreshments. Unusually for us (but seems common in Ukraine, there is a nonimal charge to sit in the waiting room. However this does deter waifs & strays.
