“Beautiful location, almost by the sea. Great cool rooms. The staff is trained to be invisible and inaudible, so the maid was never caught cleaning the room. That is, they track when a person goes for a swim or on an excursion and quickly restore order. It’s nice. A little did not like the menu in the restaurant, especially for breakfast. But it’s a matter of taste. The hotel is chic, located in the heart of the tourist life of Sudak. There is always something to do and where to go” Oleg, Russia
