“Good room, shame about the extras”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Stayed in a junior suite on the second floor for 2 nights. The room itself was large and bright, with plenty of wardrobe and surface space to spread out. Bathroom was well appointed. Everything spotless. The building has four levels and no lift, so be specific when choosing a room if you don't want to negotiate stairs. Breakfast was odd, to say the least. Only one dish cooked each morning - the 2 mornings we were there saw potato pancakes, and fried eggs and ham. Standard accompaniments each morning are yogurt and a packaged pastry. No choice of coffee or tea - it's black or green tea, and if you want coffee, you have to pay for it. Not happy about this. We also had to pay nearly $4 for a town map on arrival. Outrageous. Even though the hotel has a swimming pool, guests have to pay for the privilege of using it. Quite a good location - five to ten minutes walk (through the local market) down to the water. The staff were friendly and efficient enough, but at this price, I would expect more overall.

Room Tip: No lift, so choose a room close to the ground floor if you don't want to deal with stairs.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in June as the result of a late night, last minute internet booking.

It was a little difficult to find (like most things in Sevastopol) even with GPS. The neighborhood, at least past midnight) didn't seem promising for a four star hotel. We made a u-turn and then immediately saw signs directing us up a narrow side street. Why we didn't see these when arriving from the obvious direction on the street, remains a mystery.

We stopped outside the imposing gates, unsure what to do next, when they were opened by the imposing security guard. Although our reservation had been botched by the major internet site, we were welcomed into the courtyard and our pleasant experience began.

The very professional and alert security guard was friendly and helpful making us feel both welcome and secure. The late-night receptionist was great. Despite our botched reservation, within 10 minutes we were ensconced in a large, comfortable room.

This attractive and comfortable hotel is enclosed in a high-walled courtyard with a beautiful rose garden that is obviously someone's happy obsession. It truly is a hidden and tranquil gem in unremarkable surroundings. Apparently this property was the home of an admiral and that theme is (tastefully) portrayed throughout the public areas of the hotel.

Somewhat surprisingly, the hotel includes a beautiful pool, sauna, and steam room facility. This (at least during our free time) is not shared with other guests but is reserved for your private use at no charge. It supposedly closes at 22:00 but we were welcomed to use it much later than that.

Our room was a mid-level, junior suite, and was very comfortable. The bathroom was large, clean, and well appointed with the only surprise being dispensers for soap and shower stuff (shampoo? bodywash? 2-in-1?) rather than the usual mini bathroom "condiments". The bed and bedding were top quality and there was a large flatscreen TV and (not quite working) refrigerator.

The included breakfast was nicely presented in the comfortable dining area but it was rather limited. Any changes from the set breakfast, for example juice or kasha, is charged individually.

This hotel was given the thumbs-up by a tough Ukrainian Hotel Review TV program (which is interesting to watch). All the staff (and on-site owners) were much more friendly and helpful than is my experience in other Ukrainian hotels. Everything combined to make this a welcome home base after a hard day and I was sorry to move on after our two-day stay.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor and had a reasonable view of a pretty courtyard. Higher rooms have...
