Hotel Villa Reef: Decent accommodation in Adler

I stayed 5 days during February 2014 for the Winter Olympics. Adler town centre is a short walk away, and Adler Railway station also accessible. It's a bit of a walk over to the Olympic Park - 40-45 minutes, probably shorter now when many security fences have been removed. Simple rooms, not particularly well furnished, e.g. no chair (table, yes...). A minbar, but no contents, probably for BYO use. Very odd breakfast arrangement, but I guess it was just Russian; never the same the days I stayed there. The reception doubled as a bar/restaurant, and I guess it was meant for summer holiday makers.
I like planes (!) so I did not mind the location below the flight path of landings and take-offs at Adler Airport's southwest runway.

Very good bed. Two thirds the value for money in a hotel room.
Decent hot water and fittings - not always the case hereabouts.
Receptionists spoke some English.

The cost of the room was astronomical, but alas, during the Olympics everthing here was grossly inflated. Normal cost was much lower, check their web pages.

Various "Sanatorii": For your health

Sochi is historically seen famous for it's "Sanatorii" (or Sanatoriums). These health resorts are a combination of a hotel and a hospital and offer health packages to it's visitors and families. Some originate from Sowyet principle that hard work and dangerous labour (often however in relation to the communist party) are entitled to curing along the Black Sea in a Sochi sanatorium. This still can be witnessed in the names of some Sanatorii (Metalurg = steel industries ... Gazprom = a company in oil and gas exploitations etc.). Staying however is not available for non-Russians with the exception of a few more modern Sanatoriums. Especially for those who need or want any kind of treatment (varying from simply massages until revalidation therapies), a stay in a sanatorium could be well recommended.

Hotel Zemzytshina (Pearl): Just there at the shore of Black Sea

There was some renovation underway in that time and renovated floors were very comfortable and nice. I do not know if the hotel is still in use and what its’ condition is now.
