Fodor's Expert Review Zhemchuzhina Hotel
3 Chernomorskaya ul., Sochi, Krasnodarskiy, Russia
This enormous19-story concrete Soviet-era building looks, well, Soviet. The hotel is a well-recognized landmark, pictured on countless postcards from Sochi during the Soviet era. The mid-priced hotel offers comfortable rooms and decent service, has an Olympic-sized pool with lanes for swimmers and a private beach.
- pleasant beachside location
- while the hotel caters to families, it has a strip club on premises and single male guests may receive late-night callers
