I have spent 4 nights at the marvelous place. I can't say enough about the service, the people were very nice and friendly. Many 5***** hotels are missing such hospitality like at Villa Elena, not too many staff spoke English but we always got what we wanted. I can highly recommend this hotel, nice spacious rooms well designed. The breakfast...

When I think of Crimea I imagine Villa Elena. I've been there many times since my first experience in November 2010, the time we fell in love with this place.

We were there for my girlfriends birthday. From what I saw in Yalta - this is the best place to stay. Service is very good. Rooms are nice. We tried their SPA - small, but lovely. The weather was not very good outside, so we didn't want to go outside at all. Restaurant just great!

This is a first class hotel, which offers some tranquility just a few yards away from the promenade of Yalta. The grounds are quite small, but immaculately kept, with a delightful pool area. Service was always courteous and attentive. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, which was all cooked to order and well presented. Our rooms were very comfortable....

Stayed 2 nights in June 2012. The best location and food in Yalta. We did not expect to find such a good service here in former Soviet region... I still can not forget their Freshest Oysters and bubbly Louis Roederer champagne... Just perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Villa Elena Hotel stands in the heart of Yalta, 20 meters from the sea front. Surrounded by a century-old evergreen park, the Hotel gives its guests an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Villa Elena’s history started in 1912 when it threw open the doors with all facilities of the best foreign hotels. Today Villa Elena offers: 44 luxury rooms with air-conditioning, heated floors and free Wi-Fi; fine dining restaurants, gourmet trips around Crimea, cooking master classes by Brand Chef Bogdan Parinov; catering in the most beautiful corners of the Peninsula, and luxury MICE. The Hotel’s main restaurant – The Grand Terrace – offers fine cuisine, the widest selection of wines in Crimea, and the best oysters and lobsters on the coast. Guests enjoy its cozy hall and a large terrace with a splendid view of the Hotel’s park and the historic mansion of 1912. Bogdan Parinov’s Gastronomic Studio gives unique experiences in cooking, with late 19-century furniture, hand painted walls and copper tableware. The Hotel’s spa includes balmy baths, a steam room, a salt room, a variety of massage and wrap options and an outdoor pool with heating May through October. Villa Elena is 150 meters away from Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and a 5-minute walk from the Yalta Lighthouse. Drivers are just 2 minutes from the M18 motorway. The atmosphere of luxury and comfort since 1912 features hand painted walls, Italian handmade furniture, Old England bathrooms, and spacious balconies. Welcome to Villa Elena! IT’S INTERESTING: In the early 20th century, the building of Villa Elena was the highest in Yalta with the first lift and central heating in the town. The century-old lift still works. The Villa Elena Hotel and the Chekhov House Museum in Yalta share a common architect Leo Shapovalov. In 2011, the Villa Elena Hotel accommodated Jennifer Lopez during her visit to Crimea. ... more   less

“All rooms are good,have a menu of pillows,a menu for taking a bath!( unfortunately we didn't have time to try the services, but our friends' child 3 years old tried the special bath and next day refused to go to sleep without taking the special bath). Very nice the apartments they have for staying, high ceilings, a lot of space, hand made furniture and painting on the walls, every apartment has different painting on the walls, different furniture but the same French chic style.”
