We stayed here for 2 nights. The definite advantage of this hotel is it's location - just behind the main sea promenade. Whilst not impressive, the room was fine and comfortable enough - although the extra bed they added to make it a triple for us was a bit bizarre! We did not have any problems with noise from other rooms or outside. The layout of the hotel is very quirky - the reception is hidden from view when you enter the hotel (it is in a room to the right) & you have to walk out of the hotel to go to the restaurant. The layout & decor does not generate a warm, welcoming feel - but the receptionists were friendly enough and helped out with all our queries. Receptionists spoke good English. Buffet breakfast was fine. A previous review mentioned that there was no free wi-fi: well we had free wi-fi when we were there. The one "wow factor" I got was the swimming pool and the gym. A good sized pool - a lot bigger than I was expecting.
If tripadvisor offered it - I would give this hotel a "good" rating rather than a "very good". Summary: if you are looking for a good location in Yalta and are OK with average rooms then this hotel is a good choice for you. If you are looking for a bit of luxury/ a romantic hotel then you are probably best looking for somewhere-else.
One tip - you may find it quicker to flag down your own taxi rather than get the hotel to book one for you. Ours took 20 minutes to arrive - even though there appeared to be a number of empty taxis further down the street.
