Building and room are excellent; restaurant is overpriced if to look from quality-delicious-cost; transfer is better to manage by own and first check price via internet if you are interesting in real rate - if this topic upset you; staff is good; fresh fish is an issue not only for this hotel but in general for Crimia (if you are...

The Villa Elena is a lovely property located a short walk from the Black Sea. Decor is rather ornate by North American standards but I'm sure is perfect for the hotel's target clientele, wealthy Russians. Service was reasonable by Ukraine standards however we were not able to obtain a Hotel Directory in English and were forced to go to the... More

We spent two nights here and absolutely loved it. Beautiful hotel, lovely garden and swimming pool. Our breakfast was included which was a la carte, a bit unusual but we enjoyed the selection on offer. The meals, service and comfort was first class, highly recommend it. We were there when the yalta Grand Prix was on and the hotel hosted... More

Exemplary service in a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location, central but peaceful. The Grand Terrace is a great place to eat or have a drink. The whole place is very relaxing and the staff are extremely well trained and very friendly. Good menu with a mix of local and international dishes in the restaurant.

After a few really poor hotels in Ukraine we were surprised and thrilled to find one with excellent service, polite friendly helpful professional staff, clean rooms - just what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Minor problems were sorted immediately and we really enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was a bit strange and on our first day... More

okay, here's the deal - this one gets to the very top 3 or 5 hotels I've ever stayed at. it crawls all the way up there with the berkeley and the Jemeirah towers. recently, for old world charm, freshness, and the 1910s mediterranean feel it becomes unbeatable. a room of this quality at ciragan in Istanbul or grande bretagne...

I have stayed here before however never in the off season. Located just a very short walk up from the Black Sea , Villa Elena could not be more central to all that Yalta has to offer. The hotel excels in providing its guests the attention and service you would expect from a world class hotel. The grounds are well... More

Wonderful hotel for a relaxing holiday with the family. The staff is very attentive to all requests. Restaurant, and most importantly chef is perfect! Is very convenient. Noise from the waterfront almost none.
