In Soviet times there were two twins-hotels on the Black Sea; in Sochi ("Zhemchuzhina-Intourist") and in Yalta-Massandra ("Yalta-Intourist"). There was no possibility to get accommodation there. The reason was in the second name "Intourist" which meant for foreign tourists. Now the situation has cardinally changed. First: you can come there if you have money (no matter from where you came). Second: Tourist from Russia became foreigners!

We took an advantage of this situation and booked the hotel from Moscow and were very pleased of being there.


Unique Qualities: Yalta Hotel Complex is situated on the Southern Coast of the Crimea in Massandra Park, laid out in XIX-th century.
The largest in the Crimea the "Yalta" hotel was built in 1970th on the design of the architects Polyansky and Moshkunova. It represents a 17-storeyed building reminding a giant ocean liner “Titanic” . It dominates the panorama when you approach Yalta from the east. It’s seen from everywhere.

The building is situated on 3 terraces, with both sides overlooking the sea, is distinguished by its clear plastics, rhythmic repetition of horizontal lines of balconies. Restaurants and swimming-pools adjoin the main building. The hotel can accommodate up more then 2,500 people. The facades and interiors are originally designed. There are ten dining-rooms and one conference hall for symposiums. Painters with Zurab Tsereteli at the head took part in designing.
