“Underrated”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

My Russian girlfriend and I stayed at Otrada Hotel for a six-night romantic vacation in late June - early July earlier this year (2013). It is a boutique hotel in a residential neighborhood, walking distance to Otrada Beach (especially downhill when you are going). The hotel itself is very nice with the best wi-fi ever (even better than what I get from AT&T at home in Orange County, CA). The management and staff were very friendly and responsive and spoke enough English that I did not have to resort to the Russian g.f. much to interpret. The rooms are a little less modern and the air conditioning was not the greatest in our room. But our room was clean and comfortable and the housekeeping was very good. The laundry was reasonably priced, with one-day or same-day turnaround. We had a breakfast buffet included in the price of our room which was tasteful and varied enough to keep it interesting during our six-day stay and so my g.f. and I started each day there having breakfast poolside. The pool was very clean and well-maintained. Both my g.f. and I got massages and I concur that the masseuse there was tremendous! You get free beach towels and passes to a private beach club. I highly recommend this hotel. MAK

This is a gorgeous hotel with a private beach club you can reach by the hotel's private golf carts. The hotel has a good masseuse well worth for sore backs and shoulders. The hotel's restaurant is more than decent, with a lovely outside terrace by the pool. You can also arrange private tours through the hotel - USD 150 for 3 hours - but we didn't have that much time so the hotel arranged a guide for half the time at half the price. Mind you, there are small trolley guided tours that cover the most important sights of the city if you prefer that. When we asked the hotel about it they said it did not exist, but that could have just been ignorance on their part. Take a taxi to the Potemkin Steps and you will find it there.

Very good service, good food, pleasant atmosphere! The electric cart to the beach is a good addition to their service. Beach was clean, again friendly attentive (but not overbearing) service. Reasonably close to the centre. Staff was able to direct me to the best events going on in the city.

Usually I like this place in summer time but this time, they gave me room in basement and wouldn't move me and it was noisy by the entrance to parking garage,,,not impressed at all, pool area was out as they had parties all weekend, and the restaurant food wasn't as good as usually is On the upside, staff is very friendly and they have nice workout room and upgraded their amenities it's a 3.5 star hotel not 5!

Room Tip: Not in basement or ground floor it's noisy

Nice hotel in a residential area. But not really living up to the standards of a boutique hotel.
They sell you a superior room but only have small standard rooms to deliver.
Small but good buffébreakfast in restauant or by the pool.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a superior room if that is what you have paid for. It is a 45-60 minute walk to t...

So i Stayed at the hotel in June and my review is here for that , i also stayed in july too , and the experience was different , this time i understood the Ukraine system of tips

to one thing this hotel has is Great Food mmmm yes i think i have ate one of my best meals ever here

the rooms are a little disappointing in that they are small for the money , but the overall effect is a very pleasant Boutique Hotel maybe , because i am no Russian multimillionaire i did not go for the more expensive room , yes the crowd is interesting here , but is that not why we travel
its close to the sea and there is a free eletric golf cart to take you to the beach if you desire

yes if you call any hotel taxi it will be 2 x or more the price , you could always get them to ring another firm or ring yourself ?

my high points were the food,Quality and presentation fantastic , the atmosphere by the pool is great

and if you tip well its like your vip :) yes ia m learning about Ukraine :)

Room Tip: if you can get a room not on the from section , i think there bigger , if you tip the staff you beco...

odessa is a world unto itself and the otrada reflects that. a beautiful building, but more facade than substance. we had trouble fitting three people into the room structure. we finally settled for a room with two 1.5 meter beds, neither single nor double beds, some weird inbetween. i thought i was in a movie set when i set out for breakfast at 7 am and saw a "french maid" emerge from our next door room. i don't think she had any cleaning products with her. the hotel then witnessed a steady stream of provocative professions. i'm an adult, but i was there with my 10 year old son, and was not ready to explain to him the circumstances. we loved the potemkin steps though and would happily return, not sure back to the otrada, though.
