This hotel does the utmost to make the stay pleasurable. Very clean and bright rooms along the private beach. The staff are kind and helpful. The bathroom is clean and rooms are spacious. The restaurant has excellent food and service.
The bed was very cheap. There was one sheet on top of the mattress and then 2 individual sized sheets to cover with. The top sheets were scarcely larger than a pillow case. I have never seen anything like it. The walls were thin and I could hear neighbors. The only positive thing was the air conditioner. However, when I booked on Expedia for $60 a night I was not told that was for a room without air conditioning. In hot August I had to upgrade to an air conditioned room at over $100 per night. Not worth the money for a one star hotel. Never again.
Loved the hotel. Nice kitchen with the dishware, cookware, and a sizeable fridge. Beautiful suite design with a living room and a loft in lieu of a bedroom. We loved the European style spiral stairs, but some older people may have trouble getting upstairs. Reasonable (and free) Wi-Fi connection. Hotel staff is very helpful. Once we forgot all our money on the couch, called from the city and asked to find it and put it in a safe place. When we came back, the money was locked in a safe in our suite, and the code given to us.
There are more expensive hotels located on the beach. This one is on the main city street - and we liked it a lot, because the location is right in the middle of everything. The market is two steps away; the bus station also within a five minute walk; many stores, only 15 minutes to the beach. As you go along Kievskaya, you will also see a couple of spots where you can order tours to the local attractions, like Livadia, Swallow's Nest or even Sevastopol. The view of the city from the room was also beautiful.
This was a great experience. The staff were terrific (caveat: FSU, so expect a little chilliness), the hotel full of charm and atmosphere. The room was enormous and we had all that we needed. The bathroom was gorgeous and roomy.
Breakfast was fine. It wasn't incredible, but it was enough to keep us going. We're vegetarians and not wild about Ukrainian cuisine, and we're not really foodies anyway, so this was ok by us.
Only real complaints: our shower had no water pressure, and the wifi could be a lilttle iffy (and was only in the pizza place).

Ideally located in Yalta steps from the seafront promenade , the landmark Hotel Bristol is set within walking distance …More
A fair walk from the bus station, and a fair uphill walk from town, but altogether this hotel was a nice place to stay. Staff were very friendly at the front desk, gardens would be lovely in summer, and rooms very incredibly clean. Some of the best showers and continuous hoter water we had in the whole of the Ukraine!
