This small hotel exudes personality. Quality is built into the structure; it is not just decoration. There seemed to be an ample staff at every hour of the day and night. And the staff seemed to be aware of working in a special place. The staff went beyond being polite and attentive. They all truly seemed to take note of... More

The hotel is magnificent but the staff is what brings me back every time. They go out of their way to make me feel welcome. I have been coming for a few years now, and all of the staff know me by name. It is like coming home. The waiter in the restaurant even remembered my breakfast I special ordered... More

This hotel, with only 17 rooms, is just a superb place to stay in a city that was an unexpected delight. The rooms are large and spacious, and the Internet connection very strong. Each of the three floors has a different theme - French, English (our floor), and Spanish. The staff was courteous and helpful in all respects. The hotel... More

I guess I won't be the first to tell you... Whatever. This will be my input. Hotel Koklen is in the heart of Odessa, perfectly located for almost all needs: walks, catching taxis or whatever. Staff: this is something to be mentioned separated. Being a very frequent traveller I can assure you that the service here was one my best... More

Fabulously restored with large beautiful rooms. Staff provided excellent service and allowed us to check in early. Breakfast buffet had numerous options and offered to cook anything that wasn't already prepared. Paintings in room and hallways were gorgeous and worth going on other floors to view! Good wifi, short walk to downtown. Will stay again!

From the moment we arrived we were treated well! We were welcomed with fresh lemonade, given tours of 2 room and the choice of which we preferred. We had a room on the French floor. The room faced the street with a huge bathroom, a giant bed and relaxing purple design. There were some English news channels on the TV,... More

Great staff at reception and an excellent manager who prides herself in the class of the hotel. Beautiful clean rooms well presented. Big bathrooms. Wonderful cafe which has excellent reviews itself, either as... More

This hotel has been restored beautifully. The rooms are clean, charming and comfortable. Some of them have showers and others have tubs only (we were fine with either). The staff left a hand written welcome note in our room with local candies which was a really nice touch. We also got chocolates daily. A nice touch the American in me... More

This hotel would compete with any fine boutique hotel anywhere in Europe. Excellent remodelling of the old building on a quiet street near the center. The decorations and furnishings are creative, tasteful, and functional. The rooms have specific motifs. I stayed in the "spanish" room. the bedding was top notch. The bathroom facilities clearly had a whole lot of money... More
