Good Service and Location
I loved it. This place was reasonably priced, and had everything available to me (except a television station that spoke English... but you can't fault them for that! ) . The business room allowed me access to the internet. The front desk people did speak English, and often were my helping point. Oh! Something stupid, but it was important to me at the time. I brought my ATM card, and when the machine asks you if you want dollars or Hryivnas (pronounced "Grivnas") choose the hryvnas! The machines don't hold USA currency (which made me wonder why it asked me.... oh, well). The currency exchange is in the hotel. It is a very big hotel, and it was like a maze to get to my room. I got the room safe. I don't think it was needed, but it worked just like a safe should work.
Unique Quality: The restaurant. Beautiful. I think these people understand that Americans want fast and convenience. It is rare to see this in Europe I guess. The food was spectacular. My waitress spoke no English, but we managed with the English menu. When getting the bottle water, ask for "Vis Gas". Now I know this sounds like "With Gas" but this is how you say "without Gas" You'll love Odessa and other parts of Ukraine. There is so much to learn that is different!
Directions: Right above the huge steps looking over the Black Sea. Near the Opera. Taxi's are dirt cheap in this town, often 2 to 10 dollars (depends on if they know you will pay more).
The best of !
The Londonskaya Hotel early Renaissance style adds lovely elegance to the historical center of Odessa. The hotel was built in 1867. After its restoration in 1988, it became Odessa's finest hotel, popular among tourists and business travelers from all over the world for its convenient location.
The Londonskaya is an over priced Hotel that offers little in terms of comfort. A much better selection is the Hotel Black Sea. Londonskaya is just an overpriced, old cold hotel. The Hotel self is beautiful and is an old castle style but does not offer value for the price. The Hotel staff does speak English but is not very friendly.
Unique Quality: Rooms: 56
Single Room : $168
Double Room : $201
An Excellent Hotel, probably the best in the city. Nice, clean rooms, friendly service, fine location. Spirit of old times inside.
Directions: Airport "Odessa" (ODS) is to 12 km/7.5 ml. of the hotel.
