“The sanatorium is located in the city center. There is a convenient car interchange, as well as all types of public transport are available. The road to the sea passes through a cypress grove past cafes, entertainment venues and shops. Do not have illusions about the service of extra class. Everything is average, without fanaticism. Lovers of luxury are more likely to be disappointed by the appearance and design of the territory. Here everything remained in the Soviet way dull and gray, but very well-groomed. Meals, as in a regular dining room. On the floor there is an ironing board and a cooler. Prices are democratic» Svetlana, Russia

The distance from “Alexandria” to the city beach is 800 meters. Free secure parking is available at the hotel.

“Quite comfortable hotel, but not for a holiday with a small child. Yes, there are separate services for kids, but their quality leaves much to be desired. I recommend not to bother with the inclusion of breakfast in the price. The café has an excellent menu, orders are brought quickly. You can do without the hassle with the design of food. The rooms are tiny. If the child is infant, then in a double room there will be nowhere to put the crib. You will have to take a triple, and it is more expensive. For the accommodation of a child under 5 years old, you do not need to pay, but you will need to pay for an extra bed for it. Think, decide, carefully weigh the pros and cons, choosing “Alexandria” Maria, Russia
