“beautiful building, interesting clientele”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

odessa is a world unto itself and the otrada reflects that. a beautiful building, but more facade than substance. we had trouble fitting three people into the room structure. we finally settled for a room with two 1.5 meter beds, neither single nor double beds, some weird inbetween. i thought i was in a movie set when i set out for breakfast at 7 am and saw a "french maid" emerge from our next door room. i don't think she had any cleaning products with her. the hotel then witnessed a steady stream of provocative professions. i'm an adult, but i was there with my 10 year old son, and was not ready to explain to him the circumstances. we loved the potemkin steps though and would happily return, not sure back to the otrada, though.

The hotel is located on the edge of town – some 50 minutes walk across the city to Deribasovskaya Street and some 10 minutes downhill to the beach. The hotel does provide an electric cart to the beach for guests. However, taxis booked by the Otrada hotel charged more than double those hailed from the streets (80 hryvnas versus 30 to and from one restaurant).

The hotel is rather small so the space is at a premium. What most people would class as a small single room is proudly called a “double” here. Hence, if you like your space it is better to upgrade to Deluxe/Junior Suite – Superior Rooms are not that big either. The bedroom amenities are typically good three star.

Unusually, the external pool is directly overlooked on one side by a block of flats with balconies so that it does not feel that private to sunbathe there.

Breakfast is relatively limited but very tasteful with hot dishes changed daily. The atmosphere is spoiled somewhat by the staff's persistent penchant for playing loud rap music – not something necessarily known for morning relaxation.

Having an evening dinner inside one of the imaginative tents around the pool was a definitive highlight and food did not disappoint.

Overall, the hotel offers relatively poor value for money.

Room Tip: Deluxe Suite and above if you like your space

i liked my stay at the hotel , in june 2012 , the rooms were not quite 5 star , and the biggest problem was every one wanted a tip and let you know that they were pissed if you did not give it
which does not create the correct atmosphere,

the company also owns a beach club and guess what ? they like to charge for the towels even for hotel guest , very small minded , i suppose if you are the only 5 star in town you can be lazy

the swimming pool area is great , and the food from the restaurant is really good ,

yes i would stay again , and hope the hotel has got rid of its gypsy mentality

ps i was supposed to meet with the chairman of the hotel , he did not show :( for the meeting

26 rooms which are modern and luxurious. Location is probably great for the summer as it is near beach and has a great pool, but in the winter as this hotel is not within walking distance of the center I would probably stay elsewhere. Taxis are, however, plentiful and cheap. Nice staff!

Apart from a few minor niggles this is an excellent hotel. The room I stayed in was small, but it wasn't really an issue. Rooms clean, comfortable, quiet and well equipped. The staff are generally very helpful and accommodating. The niggles I mentioned mainly relate to the lack of good English in some staff particularly the men. Also, the room service menu is disappointing. If what you want isn't there, ask. They might be able to make it, but 2 things you won't be able to have is steak or lasagne.

Otrada hotel is an excellent choice for a pleasure or a business trip in Odessa.
Actually is the only 5 stars hotel in Odessa and offer an great service.
The rooms are very confortable even if they are a little small. The restaurant has a great menu and is run by a french chef. If you go during the summer you can also enjoy the swiming pool. Enjoy your stay!
