Built in 1898 and designed by Alexander Bernardazzi and Adolf Minkus, the 112-room heritage Hotel Bristol is a masterful showcase of renaissance and baroque architectural styles, as well as the accommodation of choice for illustrious guests visiting the city by the Black Sea. A celebrated landmark and the only luxury hotel in the historic city centre, Hotel Bristol is situated on the famous sycamore-lined cobblestone Pushkinskaya Street, across from Odessa’s Philharmonic Theatre. Following the renovation, Hotel Bristol will feature a signature restaurant and a destination bar, as well as almost 10.000 square feet of event and meeting space for special celebrations and business functions. The hotel will also offer leisure facilities, including an indoor pool, spa and fitness centre.
Odessa is the fifth largest city in Ukraine and is renowned for its seaport which handles the majority of the country’s export trade. The city is also a popular summer destination, attracting approximately one million visitors a year who flock to its fine sandy beaches.
