FIVE STAR Jewel on the Black Sea!
Posted Jun 23, 2010
This is a FIVE STAR hotel!
(I've never written a review before, but I want to see really wonderful service and kindness rewarded!)
After reading online that this was a two star hotel (it should be five!), and given the very affordable pricing, we felt very fortunate to have come across this gem! We couldn't believe how super-modern, luxurious, comfortable, FRIENDLY , and beautiful this hotel was! Each member of the staff truly bent over backwards to make our brief stay tremendously enjoyable and relaxing. On only an hour's notice, they helped up plan a picnic, whipped up a fantastic lunch in their restaurant, arranged a car, procured tickets to a private beach on the Black Sea, and ferried us to a lovely spot right by the water. They went above and beyond all our expectations, and did so with such superb politeness and pleasantness. The manager even came in on her day (!) off to double-check that arrangements had been made to take us to the airport. What a lovely group of people, and a beautiful chic hotel. Everything was very stylish and aesthetically pleasing in addition to being comfortable and relaxed.
If you are arriving from the airport, make arrangements with the hotel in advance for transit. The taxi fee will be less expensive (around $12 USD) if they arrange a car for you. The hotel is on the outskirts of the main city-- and all the better for it! Very serene!
Overall, this hotel is a jewel on the Black Sea! Thank you!
