To decide if you would like to stay at the Zirka Hotel, you must ask yourself a question. To get from the Odessa Airport to the City Center, would you rather pay 25 cents to ride a bus, or pay 25 dollars to the pushy and vulturous taxi drivers at the Airport? If you would rather pay 25 dollars for a taxi, then the Zirka is probably not for you. But if you would rather pay 25 cents for the bus, and spend the remaining $24.75 elsewhere, then the Zirka Hotel is definitely a place that you should consider.
This clearly "no frills" hotel is only about five years old; the modest room cost includes a double bed, private bathroom with a shower that has plenty of hot water; a small color TV with cable channels; an interesting and functional set of "wall hooks" rather than a dresser for storing and organizing your items; and a secure high speed wireless internet connection that is included in the price of admission.
Once again, if you are a "luxury" traveler who delights in a turndown service and a piece of chocolate placed on your pillow each night, then you should definitely look elsewhere. But if you are a "budget" traveler who needs to stretch every bit of money as far as you can, then you will be very satisfied with your room, with the 24 hour cafe on the 3rd floor, and with the 24 hour convenience store right across the street from the hotel.
And on my visit, the front desk staff and the cleaning staff were all very courteous, professional, helpful and friendly.
