“Perfect Birthday”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We were there for my girlfriends birthday. From what I saw in Yalta - this is the best place to stay. Service is very good. Rooms are nice. We tried their SPA - small, but lovely. The weather was not very good outside, so we didn't want to go outside at all. Restaurant just great!

Room Tip: They have only one standart room, so you probably wan't get it.

This is a first class hotel, which offers some tranquility just a few yards away from the promenade of Yalta.
The grounds are quite small, but immaculately kept, with a delightful pool area.
Service was always courteous and attentive.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel, which was all cooked to order and well presented.
Our rooms were very comfortable.
The whole place is very well maintained and has a feeling of Colonial opulence.
I would certainly recommend for a stay in Yalta.

Room Tip: It would be worth asking for a room with a sea view.

Stayed 2 nights in June 2012. The best location and food in Yalta. We did not expect to find such a good service here in former Soviet region... I still can not forget their Freshest Oysters and bubbly Louis Roederer champagne... Just perfect.

Stayed Friday night and Saturday night. Delightful hotel nicely located within walking distance to seafront. Amazing apartment, fantastic service, extremely helpful and friendly and helpful staff, it’s just a place you should go. Dinner at the Gorazio restaurant in the hotel was wonderful, we were really thrilled with the food. We would not hesitate in returning to this hotel again!

Room Tip: ask for a room with seaview

First of all , this hotel is very centally located in Yalta with 50m distance to seaside and famous pedestrian road. Hotel itself perfectly renovated hotel with very premium and confortable interior. Service quality is very high with always smiling staff. If you have 3 or more days in the city , I would recommend you to try hotel's restaurant , if not there are several better restaurants in the city . Get ready to pay very premium price as well... If you have enough budget , stay only in this hotel .
