I liked this hotel, especially the massive rooms with old school decor. Helpful staff, central location. I would probably return here if I was ever back in Odessa.

The downside is that breakfast is served a couple of blocks away. Also they wouldn't let me have a late checkout despite making me wait when I checked in until after 4pm.

After two weeks in sleeping in awful soviet hotels all over western Ukraine, what a relief! Small and cozy, clean and well-maintained, in the heart of European city of old Odessa, Ayvazovsky hotel greeted us with a polite bellman at the front door, who helped us park the car and took our luggage to the rooms. I had a room facing the street, and it was wonderful, but my friend had a back yard facing room and was not that happy. Service was fantastic: everything you want at a time you want. Breakfast was provided in two very good restaurants within 5 min walking. The only possible downside was a very small shower cabin, which accommodated my body OK, but I am relatively small and skinny. An average American may have a problem there. I stayed there for 5 nights and it was a very positive experience.

Room Tip: Try a street-facing room

A very clean NON-SMOKING boutique hotel right in the center of the city. I try to always book it when traveling to Odessa. Great service all around. From check-in to auxiliary services such as laundry, in room dining and internet access. Location is great as well, all central dinning spots are within walking distance. Highly recommended.

If you aren't looking for all of the amenities a hotel chain offers, this is your hotel. I would liken it to an over-sized bed-and-breakfast. Breakfast entails short walks to two possible restaurants but don't let that deter you. They have room service via one of the restaurants. The hotel personnel are friendly, helpful, and speak English. The location is near Deribasovskaya and Primorsky streets which is the heart of the city center. Overall, excellent value in a great location.

Central location. Good breakfast on local restaurant 2 blocks from the hotel. Very clean room and bathromm. Good bed and good quality in bedding, linnen and towels. Minibarprices are fair. Helpful, polite and smiling staff. BUT: Avoid the "sun-window-rooms" on the 3. floor, they have no view or regular windows.

Stayed for 3 days. A very nice hotel - location close to the Opera and Deribasovskaya Street (5 minutes) and the Potenkim Stairs, 10 minutes. If your are to a nice morning run and a swim in the Black Sea, the hotel is approx. 2 km. from the beach. A very nice way to see Odessa wake up! The reception was very friendly, allways with a smile and good to handle questions (all working in the reception was very good in englich). Stayed at first floor, nice and clean - good bed. Wi-fi fast - easy to get access.

This hotel was indeed a very positive surprise for me in Odessa. Fairly priced. Excellent location - 5 minutes walk from Opera and Deribasovskaya Street. Super friendly staff at the reception - they managed my very early checkout perfectly. Ultra clean and spacy, stylish rooms with a great bathroom, lovely mini kits and lots of extras, such as free chocolates or filtered water. I liked their breakfast system - as they do not have any restaurant inside the hotel, either you will order your breakfast in advance and it is delivered to you room in the morning, or you will get a voucher at the reception and have your breakfast at one of the four offered places nearby.
