“Good hotel in a city with not much choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Arriving in Sukhumi, it didn't take us long to locate the Inter-Sukhum hotel - it is at the start of the main promenade, but set just back from it - an ideal location really.

The receptionist spoke English, which is not common here - if you don't speak any Russian, I would seriously advise against travelling to this region, as you are likely to run into problems right from the start. She checked us in with no problems and gave us our keys.

The rooms were good - clean, comfortable, decent bathroom and a nice balcony with facilities to dry clothes if needed.

As mentioned by previous posters, the breakfast isn't up to an awful lot - it's very soviet-era fare with the likes of pasta, gretchka and kasha being served each morning as a staple - filled out with some random meat, eggs, bread and some cheapo coffee or tea. The army of ladies who serve the breakfast are also pretty fearsome - so avoid upsetting them if possible!

The main centre of town is about 10 minutes walk down the promenade and you are within about 15-20 minutes of most things/places to see or do in town. Additionally, with the hotel being located just off the promenade, you can get access to the beach in a couple of minutes - and there are lots of restaurants / cafes / kiosks / bars dotted around the area - all which serve delicious food.

All in all - this is not the most luxurious hotel in the world but it's probably the best one in Sukhumi and I would heartily recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Room Tip: There will be no traffic noise if you ask for a room facing the promenade - but you might get music...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I stayed here 2 nights, the good thing about the hotel is location in the city near the beach. Also a shower with good pressure and warm water (not always avaliable in the region otherwise) and the place felt safe and reasonable comfortable. Its surprising though that a town that has a lot of charm and beauty, there is a hotel this boring! Service was "ok" as so was breakfast.

Nothing to add beyond what has already been mentioned in other reviews. Uninspired hotel, basic lodgings, clean and simple, well-equipped bathroom. Staff are helpful. The breakfast buffet is on par with most military canteens, shame that they can't take advantage of the excellent local produce and provide a healthier and tasty selection.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We stayed more than one month at this hotel, being on business trip. It is located on the sea shore line, close to the central market, 2 minutes from the beach, a lot of restaurants in walking distance. The hotel has air conditioning, hot water and light (in Suhumi light often goes off). They try to keep it clean, but since the building is old, they are doing their best. The breakfast is in Soviet style, not much to choose from, but you have a nice supermarket nearby to buy some yogurt or anything else. It has a nice courtyard and nice lobby. Internet is not free and rooms are quite noisy due to location on a busy street. All rooms have balconies and there are laundry facilities.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the sea, should be less noisy

Stayed there 3 times already, the european level 3 stars hotel with a nice breakfast, just 50 metres from the sea cost, wi-fi is not free, but I suggest you to use local simcards with mobile internet as they are much cheaper.

There are numbers with the view to the city - they are better because the sun on the morning in going from another side!
