When you go to Odessa, it's best in my opinion to just rent an apartment.
You have total freedom to do whatever you want. Not to mention an apartment is a lot cheaper than any hotel you could find anywhere in the city.
I paid 179 UAH ($35) per night for a single room. The hotel is a basic two star, but has a perfect location at the top of Deribasovskaya. The hotel is old, big and sprawling, with long corridors and erratic plumbing, but it has an internet cafe-bar, which is really useful. The Passage was built in 1886 and has 139 rooms.
Breakfast is not included.
The Duke hostel set on two floors is a cheap place to stay in Odessa. Bathrooms are clean and spacious, staff are helpful but there are no locks on dorms.
Quite a decent apartment located in the city center, 15 minutes walking from the main train station (Vokzal) and 10 min. from Deribasovskaya str. It's got one huge bedroom, king size bed, ironing-board, kitchen - full equipment, toilette and a small bathroom with a wash-machine.
I also rented an apartment. This is probably the better thing to do. Do your research find a nice place for a good price. They have kitchens so you can get food and cook if you feel like it sometimes late you might not want to be looking around for a plac eto eat.
The apartment's are much cheaper than hotel rooms and your getting much more room.
Makes you feel like you live there, just not visiting.
On our way to Odessa we saw a sign for this place and when we found out there are no free beds in Odessa we decided to go here. And we were thrilled. Rooms were big and clean, with TVs (ours had even 2), with refrigerators. And you can use a great swimming pool for free.
This place works as a hotel and as a motel. So you can take a room for whole day or just for a night (8 pm - 8 am). Price for double was 170 grivna (120 just for a night) and for a triple room 250 grivna (170 just for the night).
Staff is very friendly but only speaks ukrainian and russian.
This hotel has a very favorable location in the picturesque Arcadia – one of the city resort areas.
This place is known for its marvelous microclimate, beautiful sea views and fresh air. You can breathe freely here and do not feel like leaving.
The hotel is a nine-storey building with comfortable rooms (suites and semi-suites), nice interior and quiet place.
They also have a conference hall for 200 persons, a business center and auditoriums for 60 participants, rooms for talks, fax, Internet connection.
You can enjoy the dishes of Ukrainian and Russian cuisine at the restaurant or got to the sauna and have massage or healing baths.
Out of my dozen of stays in Odessa I rented an apartment twice.
Last time it was in November 2004.
I knew there were apartment owners right on the platform at the railway station; if not there, then you could go to the entrance to the railway station and see ladies with an ad KBAPTIPA.
You can get an apartment in any district and the prices vary from $30 to $50 a day depending on the district and the available amenities there.
My apartment cost $20 a day (2004).
It was a two-room apartment in Shevchenko Avenue, a street well known to me for it was not far from Magnolia hotel where I used to stay many times.
The apartment had all modern conveniences.
I did not stay in a hotel in Odessa, but they are very expensive!
The Londonskaya Hotel is across from Pushkin Park and adjacent to the Potemkim Stairs and is a five-star hotel. It looks very posh and I'm sure is very good.
The Odessa Hotel is on the quay at the sea terminal and also looks very modern and posh. The Mozart Hotel is adjacent to the Opera House and is just a few blocks from the Potemkin Stairs, it also looks very posh and is a little closer to the city centre.
If one is to stay in Odessa for more than a few days and is on a budget, I would recommend that one rents an apartment. They cost less than one-third the hotels and have kitchen facilities. Many are located near the city centre and all sites mentioned by me. One can find several websites to obtain information on and reserve these accomodations. While the hotels seem very adequate, they are few and are very expensive.
Locate across from the beach, all nightlife and restaurants. Hotel has an indoor pool, sauna, and fitness center. Breakfast buffet is included. Service is impecable. Great location fro young people wanting to party.
I´m not 100 percent sure that this place is still in business.. but I bet it is..
This is a decadently elegant old hotel, right on the Deribovskaya (main pedestrian walking street) and directly across from the tourist market.
There are rooms with or without shower, and with the water working and not working in Odessa, I recommend getting one with your own shower.. you´ll have a better chance at getting in on a time when the water is working. The beds were not especially comfortable, stuffed with hey I think, but at least there were sufficient blankets.
The bathrooms are not nice, but they work.
Why you may wonder is it that I reccommend this place... the price my friend.. although the price may have gone up since I was there, at that time I was paying 50 grivnas a night for a double with a shower...about 25 US Dollars at that time. this was CHEAP!
It has a great location, and the ambiance is cinematic.
the location, and I didn´t feel particularly in danger at any given time.
This is one of the two budget places mentioned in guide books. When we got there, there were no single rooms available but so we took a double which was actually two rooms and a bathroom and a fridge and TV. It turned out quite well.
Don't expect any hot water from spring till about Sept/Oct. This is the tough bit about staying here. No breakfast. The supermarket is in the same building which has a good selection. Downstairs in the internet bar they have a couple of computers with real fast connection.
Don't hesitate to ask the floor lady for additional blankets if you're cold. They also do laundry but it doesn't come too clean.
I had no experience about beeing in this hotel, i just passed by and it impressed me by it's decorations.
The only info i posess is that this hotel is ***.
All at the end of the pier of the maritime station (Morsky Voksal) to been constructed, by German investors, lately a terrific luxury hotel: The Kempinski
One good opportunity to stay in Odesa is a homestay. There are always women waiting in front of the railway station for travellers to offer rooms.
Check with the ladies about the location on a map, so that you can be sure not to end up in one of the suburbs!
