The hotel is an old soviet style block. It looks dirty from outside and this is confirmed when you enter the lobby. The rooms are small and dirty. Ask to have a room with view on the port because, on the other side, there is a open air discotheque which is very loud till 5 am.
Internet is working using the city wireless network. So ask to have a room in the higher floor to get the signal.
The quality of breakfast is poor and there is not a big choice on the buffet. The other restaurants in the hotel are not good either. But fortunately there are some good restaurants around the hotel.
The pool is very dirty. The sun chairs around it and on the beach have never been cleaned. I really don't recommend to go there. In additon the pool is not free and there is loud music all day long.
I have been many times in Sochi. There are only 2 hotels which I recommend: Radisson Lazurnaya south (beach side) and Grand hotel poliana (on the mountain 40minutes driving from Sochi).
