The 4 star Odessa Hotel was opened in 2001 and it is ideally located in the very heart of Odessa, right on the sea port, 10 minutes walk from the city centre, overlooking the Potemkin Steps and the Old city on the one hand and the Black Sea on the other. It is situated adjacent to the Passenger Terminal of the Odessa Sea Port, close to one of the largest Odessa Exhibition Centres.

We had a Black Sea cruise booked out of Odessa, and the Odessa Hotel is located right at the dock, so this was a perfect location for us. The hotel has a superb location, at the foot of the Potemkin Stairs, with easy access to the Opera House and
other centrally located attractions.
Our room had a North view (not the Black Sea or City views they boast), and the balcony door (facing East) had no curtain to prevent the morning sun from illuminating the room at sunrise. The room was clean and comfortable, and free breakfast was included.
The hotel was very expensive for everything including drinks. It is located near the city center which is about a 10 minute walk. The only thing is you have to walk up a lot of stairs or ride the lift to the top to get to the city center. Prepare
to pay a lot for coffee, beer or bottled water at the hotel bar. If you have the hotel do your laundry it is very expensive. The rooms are old and run down. There is a lot of noise from the docks. The hotel is right on the docks in the harbor. The staff will yell at you if you take coffee from the restuarant to the bar area. I had an argument with them every morning about taking my coffee to the bar area because I smoke and there is no smoking in the restuarant. The coffee the bar serves is some sort of instant coffee and not as good as the coffee they serve with breakfast. The hotel isn't a bad price considering all of the hotels in Odessa are really expensive. The wyfy internet only works in the lobby and bar area sometimes and goes out for hours at a time. The breakfast they serve is ok and you get a large selection of different things included with the room. I ate dinner there once during my stay and it was good but you can get meals a lot cheaper in the city centers many restuarants. The room temperature has no adjustments so if your not happy that it is really hot in there during the summer you can talk to the staff and they will adjust it some. I did get them to make it so it was bearable to stay in the room. I would say it is comparable to staying at a motel 6. The staff is helpful when you ask them anything. Just be prepared to pay for every little thing during your stay. There is a grocery store a 20 minute walk from the hotel and you can get most everything there. Taxi's are a minimum of $5 for a short ride and about $10 to most places in the city. To the airport it is $15. The hotel is more then happy to call taxi's for you. The good part about the room is they have a safe. The hotel has lots of security and they keep out all the riffraff from the docks out of the hotel. Overall it is a ok hotel and I would stay there again. There are a lot of swindlers in Odessa so be prepared for them once you leave the hotel and start walking around the city. Keep your money seperated into different pockets and have $10 with your passport in case you get stopped by the police. The police in Odessa go fishing for people walking around after about 8pm. If they stop you and you have your passport it is going to cost you $10 if you don't have your passport it is a trip to jail and $200.

There are a lot of swindlers in Odessa so be prepared for them once you leave the hotel and start walking around the city.

If they stop you and you have your passport it is going to cost you $10 if you don't have your passport it is a trip to jail and $200. It is really safe walking around the people are friendly but just keep an eye out and don't flash a lot of money or go anywhere with people who approach you on the street. There are tons of swindlers who will try to sell you anything imaginable. Don't take American Express Travelers Checks. It is almost impossible to exchange them in the Ukraine. There are lots of ATM's and you can get cash from your credit card. Some places take Visa/Master Card.
