Non-Smoking and cheap Hotel

I chosen Zirka hotel, because a location pleased me in a center a city. But when I arrived in a hotel I was surprised, that a price is cheap, and in a room there is a shower, rest room, hot water. Very hospitable personnel and cleanness of hotel high-level. Room is not so big, but in a room there is all necessary for a residence. Hotel is quiet and clean. If I need to ride to Odessa, I necessarily will be stopped at Zirka hotel.

The Worst

Literally the worst hotel, by far, that I have ever stayed in. Rude, obnoxious staff, cramped room with no window, furniture that wouldn't be found even at a flea market created the ultimate in customer discomfort. To add to the charm, the lights were out in the hallway in front of the elevator, making it very difficult to find the elevator buttons. And of course the elevator ride was like an amusement park ride, complete with alarming lurches and short drops. On the positive side, the bedding and towels were clean. I would stay here again if the only alternative were to sleep in a car. Otherwise, never again.

Rent an APARTMENT Instead ! ! (Cheaper & much nicer)

Who ever heard of a hotel room with NO windows??? The location is a long walk (1.5 miles) to the ""tourist trap"" of Dereribasovskaya St - and even further to the Opera and Potemkin Stairs. You can take a bus (or a taxi) instead of walking, as long as you know which bus to take. The TAXI DRIVERS will cheat you when they see you are a foreigner (that is, not from Odessa - that is a ""foreigner"" to them). A TAXI RIDE from the airport to city center normally costs (as of 11/12/2008) about 40-50 ""Greev-Na"" (their currency), which is currently exchanged at about 5.5 ""Greev-na"" per $1 USD. So this taxi ride of 50 G. would cost a non-foreigner approx. $9-10 USD. But at the airport the cost for a FOREIGNER will be about $100 USD or over 500 ""Greev-na"" -- and the taxi drivers there ALL ask the same price!! It is like a ""taxi cartel"". The best way is to PHONE for a taxi from the airport - you can get a phone number inside the airport. And be sure to get a FIRM PRICE ffrom the taxi company/driver when on the phone. (If the driver later tries to charge more, tell him the agreed upon price is all you will pay -- he will accept that ! !) Plus NEVER pay a tip to a taxi driver ! ! You have been cheated ALREADY ! ! My advice: Go online and RENT AN APARTMENT ! ! ! They are a BARGAIN (far below the cost of a hotel room), are usually right in the city center (near Deribasovskaya St) and have many rooms, a kitchen, modern western-style bathroom, and usually TV, Internet, VCR, phone, etc. Plus they are immaculately clean ! ! !

Cheap, Central Location, Secure

Considering that Ukraine is a former Soviet Union state, I did not expect opulent luxury. Actually, for this comparative price, I was not sure what to expect. It is inexpensive. The rooms are small. The mattresses are ""plain"". Bedding and towel were spartan at best. But it was comfortable. Shower and toilet, 24 hour hot (warm) water. The staff were helpful and someone always spoke some English. No amenities. As in none. Money exchanges everywhere. Walking distance to the waterfront, and everywhere else. Eurocar rental delivered my rental car to the hotel and picked it up too, for no extra charge. If you want ice cubes, bring your own mini-cube tray. The little refrigs will make ice in hours but mine had only one tray, Bottled water in the hallways. There are several 24 hour minimarts, one just accross the street. Bars, discos and casinos, but did not do those.

foreign visitor

I would not recommend this hotel for most people. It does have some good points such as reasonable room rates and a good location, but if you can afford a better hotel you will probably prefer that instead. I stayed there for one night, then cancelled the rest of my reservation. The wireless internet is only in their very cramped lobby which is too small and crowded to safely use a laptop computer. I never was able to access the internet there even after getting their login code. The 2 room suite I stayed in was very poorly furnished. Just lots of beds with no closets, chairs or organization. It did have a small refrigerator which I did not use.

A surprise hotel

I was lucky to get a hotel in Odessa during the peak season. At first, I was cautious about a small room of about 6 square meters only with no windows but the room proved very comfortable and, well, I don't need the windows at night, anyway. The room has climate control and the air quality was excellent, though air in Odessa is generally very dirty.\nI've been to Odessa many times and stayed in various hotels. Though the Zirka hotel is not a fancy hotel, it has all the basic amenities at a very reasonable price. Zirka is new, has round-the-clock hot water (not a given thing in Ukraine), and is centrally located. I would stay in a more expensive place for a business trip (I workd for a large Russian company), but for vacation Zirka proved a decent place.
