Stayed in the hotel during the winter olympics. The room on the 12th floor was not renovated yet and it was a disaster - bathroom was leaking (wooden doors soaked), carpets dirty and on the pool-side the noises from nearby nightclub lasted until 5 am. But the view was excellent and also the breakfast was very good - a lot... More

We stayed here during Sochi 2014. The hotel was clean. The bedroom was small but adequate. The front desk was friendly and helpful. The bar was lively. Breakfast exceeded expectations. Beach is stony. Can't imagine what it would be like in summer time when full. A 10 minute cab ride from the train station in Sochi so not easy to... More

Stayed here during the Olympics. The room was basic. Air conditioning never worked. Breakfast buffet was vast, with a range of fresh (blinis!) to canned (fruits). Staff was very friendly, patient and tried hard with large crowds.Were I to go to Sochi again, I'd probably seek to stay closer to downtown.Great view of the Black Sea.

I stayed here for the Sochi Olympics. The rooms were fine, with a nice balcony and flat screen TV. We had breakfast there every morning and ordered room service once - the food was not anything extra special but I had no complaints. The surroundings of the hotel were a little less polished. We often had to walk back from... More

The hotel is undergoing renovation, but we didn't get a renovated room. Our. Old room was not suitable for living- horrible smell and stained carpet with furniture from the times when the hotel was built - 70s? (agree 100% with other reviewer). Over the weekend there is very loud music coming from the nightclub until 5am?!?!?! . The breakfast buffet... More

The hotel is undergoing renovation, so I was 'lucky' to stay in old and new rooms. Renovated rooms are ok but nowhere near four stars. Old room was practically not suitable for leaving - horrible stench and stained carpet with furniture from the times when the hotel was built - 70s? Over the weekend there is very loud music coming... More

We stayed here as part of a package for the Winter Olympics. This hotel was not ready for this. The foyer was still being completed and only some floors were renovated. The location of the hotel is on the Black Sea. Our room was on the 2nd floor which was one of the renovated floors. Rooms faced the front of... More

Just a quick note. If you plan to stay at this hotel be aware that it is undergoing a major remodel. Also, the near by disco establishments play loud music ALL night long. The music stops around 5-6 am. As usual, you need to curb your expectations based on the usual star rating. It has a Russian 4 star rating,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Zhemchuzina during the Olympics. As with most everything else in Sochi, they're finishing up the remodeling. If you're looking for American accommodations then the Zhemchuzina is close. If you're looking for European style accommodations then this place has it nailed. Pros: good location for the seaport, nice pool facilities, nicely remodeled rooms. The... More
