“Good location, nice restaurant”
Reviewed 7 August 2010

Very good location in city-center, in close walking distance to the major sights of the city (famous stairs, opera, museums, port), many bars/cafés very close, but not disturbing at all.
Absolutely nothing to complain about.
Feeling very safe and comfortable there.
Rooms could be more spacious, but the historic building structure sets the limits for that.
Very good restaurant in the hotel.

I stayed at the Continental for a little over a week in April. The location is great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The room was on the small side, but fine for me. The internet access costs extra, however, it worked well and was reliable. I had stayed at the Londonskaya earlier in my trip, and even though that hotel is very picturesque and my room was larger there, I liked the Continental better. I could see myself staying there again. And the staff was helful, particlarly the ladies at the front desk. The breakfast, which is included with the room, was also nice. And therer is free wifi in the hotel restaurant, which I found convenient during breakfast.

Reviewed 7 October 2009

It is always nostalgic to enter a hotel in these parts and immediately have to climb stairs to the lobby and then climb more still to get to the elevator. Besides that minor annoyance, rooms are bright and clean, service was friendlier than in many Ukrainian places, and the location is hard to beat, as it is on the main tourist route but just off the main roads. The free wireless needs work though as it was hit and miss in the lobby and the smoky restaurant - The paid service in the room was excellent.

I have stayed at Continental Hotel on five different occasions and the service has always been impeccable. The rooms are very nice and clean, the beds so comfortable, the staff always helpful and smiling, breakfast is great and the hotel as a whole feels welcoming and intimate. Free Wifi in the restaurant and reception area. Great location on the main pedestrian street Deribasovskaya, minutes from the Opera and Potemkin stairs. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. FYI Londonskaya is also good (but the standard rooms are of low quality) and I hear Mozart Hotel is nice but the reception staff was very rude the one time I was there.

Reviewed 6 March 2009

Quiet location at one end of Deribasovskaya St, and very close to the main street, restaurants, shops etc.

Room was nice. Clean, tidy and with everything I needed. Bathroom clean and well maintained. Only complaint I have is that the bath was so short! But if you prefer showers then that won't be an issue. And it may just have been short in my room because of the shape of the bathroom.

Really liked the breakfast room. Nice layout and decor. Breakfast was good. A nice choice and quick/well timed service.

No problems with check in and check out.

My advice would be to book a car/taxi to/from the airport from the hotel. It was my first time to Odessa and I got overcharged for my trip from the airport when I arrived. I got a car via the hotel for the trip back to the airport and paid less.

I would definitely return.

Hotel is excellent for business people and tourists alike. Good location close to the main streets & offices, easy to reach by car. Quiet during night-time and close to good restaurants (CasaNova across the street is a good choice).

Rooms tidy, good beds, clean bathrooms and a nice breakfast room. Easy to check in, hotel feels safe.

The only two annoyances are that:

1. breakfast service can be slow
and
2. the reception (at least had) strict rules to control the room before you could check out - which feels very unnecessary as they have all credit card details anyway...

Reviewed 21 June 2008

The Continental in Odessa may be the best place to stay in Odessa. The rooms are well-appointed with air-conditioning and good plumbing. Everything was clean, well-trained and helpful staff (receptionists speak English), small business center with two computers for Internet access (extra charge), elevator, good breakfasts, and excellent location. Pricey for the Ukraine, but I would definitely stay there again. By the way, Primorsky Blvd is torn up, and I would not recommend the Londonskaya Hotel until the Primorsky construction is completed.
