“central location, quiet old, don't expect much”
Reviewed 31 May 2011

The hotel that is really centrally located, close to Odessa's touristic attractions and Deribassovskaya street where a lot of restaurants are. It was quiet cheap for tourist used to Western-European prices... but at the same time expensive for Ukrainian standards. And I guess that location and price are two main and only advantages. The hotel need to be renovated, if you're staying at last floor prepare for walking by the long stairs as there's no lift.. And we had to pay extra for leaving a luggage at the reception for a couple of hours before leaving when we still wanted to enjoy Odessa after check-out (it happened to me for a first time).
If you're looking just for a place to sleep it's ok, but don't expect much.

The hotel is located in a very ancient and fascinating palace, anyway some refurnishing would be necessary.
The location is fantastic and almost everything can be find near the hotel or with a walk (Odessa is a quite big city so the centre is big indeed).
The service is normal considering the ex-soviet countries standards.
The breakfast can be improved because the place doesn't seem very hygienic and the choice is quite limited.

The location is great, but that about ends the hotel's advantages. The building is old, rundown. No hot water in our room, windows barely close, street noise is terrible, furniture very old, and cleaning ladies plainly aggressive. Moved to another hotel.

The best thing about the hotel is its central location; 5 minutes walk from Deribasovskaya Street (the pedestrianised area where there are lots of restaurants) and 10-15 minutes walk from the Potemkin Steps. The hotel is clean and has a quite charming old fashioned and grand style, and the double room we had was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was decent with various cereals, meats and cheeses and there was an excellent choice of dishes ready to order, such as fried eggs, omelettes and porridge. The reception staff spoke English, which was very useful. The only drawback was there was no air conditioning in the room (only in the communal areas it appeared) and this made sleeping difficult but I would still recommend it based on price, location and the good level of cleanliness.

Stayed many times in the Tsentralnaya. Old, but well-kept. Outstanding location, and reasonable price considering the other hotels. Dine at the Steakhouse on Deribasavskaya Street.
