This was my first time in Ukraine and I felt I needed the safety of the hotel as I did not know what to expect. This hotel is very clean, the bathrooms were spotless and all the common areas were as well. The service staff knew English, some were better than others, and I felt only once that I was misunderstood to the point that I missed a walking tour because I thought I understood where the tour was to meet, and then to my surprise no one showed up at the appointed time of the tour. But as everyone says there "What do you expect, it is Ukraine?" The wifi was ok and I never lost a connection in the 8 days I was there. I had to use the 2nd floor one though as my signal was better with that than the 4th floor which was were my room was. If you call ahead and request a taxi they will meet you at the airport which is very important if you are on your own. I walked out from customs and there was the driver with a sign with my name and off we went. The bill is added your room. Overall, I was very satisfied.

the hotel is slightly pricey, but the location is great (on the main street, which is mostly pedestrian), the lobby nice, the reception and restaurant staff always nice, rooms very comfy and clean, bad wifi but a 24-hr business centre free of charge. All in all I really like this hotel and warmly recommend it.

The accomodations were excellent, as were the food and service. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful in every way. First hotel I've ever stayed in where when I returned in the evening the bed had been turned down while I was out.

Stayed there for a weekend in January. Had a nice room overlooking the (calm) street. Located in the old city centre, close enough to bars and restaurants. Staff is friendly, wireless works, room service is good. Not very suitable for non-business related travel.

Continental Business Hotel in Odessa is the place. I stayed two nights in this full service hotel in the heart of downtown Odessa (Odesa) on quiet street and within easy walking distance of the Opera House and Potemkin Steps. It is a very clean comfortable place with friendly staff who speak English. Breakfast and Wi-Fi are included. The breakfast is extra special as you have a choice of continental or a full breakfast along with the famous Odessa Champagne. They also have a sauna but I never used it. I booked the hotel via e-mail with the DEMCHISHINA-TUR travel company - www.WelcomeToOdessa.net

I stayed 2 nights in a Junior Suite with my girlfriend at the Continental Hotel in August and was rather disappointed.

Pros:
- Good size of room: 30-35 sqm
- Clean room
- Free wi-fi

Cons:
- Junior suites are near the elevator and one hears all the time the elevator bell when it reaches the floor (VERY ANNOYING)
- Thin walls and slamming doors
- Quality of breakfast: dry pastries, non-fresh orange juice (isn't it supposed to be a 4 star hotel?)
- Had to pay 50% of a night rate for a late check-out at 4 PM (did it anyway since I was food-poisoned from the previous night)

Conclusion:
will definitely stay elsewhere next time, maybe at the Bristol hotel if I can get a good deal, the restaurant is outstanding by the way.

Stayed a week. Outstanding service, from the front desk to the restaurant to the doormen. Plenty of English-speakers. Included breakfast outstanding...you can order directly off the regular breakfast menu and it counts as part of your included breakfast. Single elevator is small; can take a bit if a tour group is in the hotel.

Location can't be beat. On quiet street but only a couple of blocks from Primorsky Blvd., the Opera house, the Deribasovskaya street scene, etc. Art museum around the corner. Excellent value. If you need a break, the Wellness Spa (hidden behind the Opera House on Tchaikovsky Pl.) is the best spa-pool-gym I've ever used.
