Radisson Lazurnaya Hotel
Ranked #37 of 219 Hotels in Sochi
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Sochi is lacking good hotels. Hopefully in the course of preparing the Winter Games which will be held in 2014, the situation will improve. So far this one is among the best in Sochi, but it is not easy to enjoy it. Lobby, lobby bar, restaurant, rooms - everywhere you see the remains of the 'Perestroyka' times luxury, which stadards are currently far behind up-to-date trends. Besides the style, it simply requires refurbishing. Also, in-room ventilation system brings to your room the smoke from the other rooms, which makes your stay really crazy (if you are not lucky like I was, it may happen every hour or even more often, also during the night time). The only 2 things I found good about this hotel: there can be very good sea view from the high floors, and the breakfast was fine.

Room Tip: Sea view at high floors

Large public area's, great pool and gym (fee payable sometimes) and extensive buffet breakfast are the plus points about this hotel. It is slighly outside the main part of Sochi (not walkable) and the journey into the city can take anything from 15mins to 1 hour by cab (traffic is horrendous at times). Rooms are tired but conforable enough. Wifi is free in the rooms and lobby area but there are quite frequent power cuts. The hotel has a private beach area on the Black Sea with a huttle bus (only a 5min walk from hotel).
It can be expensive (£180 per night b&b in August 2012)

I have spent two nights in Sochi to see the next winter Olympic sites. After having done lots of research I decided to stay at the Radisson. There are only a handful hotels in Sochi area. A few new one are being built though but were far from being finished in June.
This is a four stars hotel in an eastern european country.
The grounds are very well kept. Nice large swimming pool. The Lobby, bar and restaurant are vast and spotless however the look is very 80's. Once you are over it everything is fine.
Excellent vodkas at the bar and friendly staff. The minus is the level of english of the staff that is very very poor. So be patient. They are all very nice, smiling and will try to help the best they can by calling someone speaking the language. Just don't expect to have english spoken staff at all time. Sometimes you have surprises. Our concierge had to ask for help. All in all it worked perfectly.
Rooms are clean, very standard looking. Bathroom has been remodeled and was clean and worked perfectly. Again to me this is more of a 3 stars hotel but you are in Sochi ....
Breakfast is generous - large buffet and we found the food very good.
We organized our day trip and booked a car with driver ($45 p/hour) with the concierge. Everything worked perfectly.
Beware traffic is huge. Only one road along the winding coast .... so plan well.
The Olympic facilities are nearby the Adler airport so very convenient and from there you have a nice road taking you up to the valley towards Krasnya Polyana which is the ski resort currently under construction. We were able to drive up and took gondolas (3) to the top of the mountain. Nice view of the Caucasus mountains. It takes 40mn only from the sea/airport up to the resort by car - lots of trucks due to road, train, hotels construction ......
One more thing - Sochi is spread out along the coast for miles and you cannot walk to the center. really -

Stayed one night in Radisson Sochi during my trip to Krasnaya Polyana (the snow resport of Sochi, home of the 2014 Winter Olympics).

From the outside you can see, that this at least used to be "the place" to stay in Sochi city. In the lobby they list celebrities etc who stayed sometime in the hotel; names like George W. Bush, Silvio Berlusconi, Vladimir Putin etc. The hotel has a helipad, which also is a sign of what the hotel is or was.

At check-in you are treated with a drink and the staff is very polite. They did check unusually thoroughly my passport and ticket, probably because the next day some "important" people were rumoured to arrive.

There are some high-class stores in the lobby as well as a bar and a fish-restaurant below the lobby.

I had a standard double room on the 11th floor; all rooms are with a very nice ocean view. However the room was furnished like in the 90´s and it was rather small, especially the bathroom was tiny. The the tv-set was a tube one, must have been more than 10 years old.

I had a late lunch in the restaurant, where service and food was good. The hotel has a limo (you pay for it), which I used to get into the center. The beachfront promenade is worth seeing!

In the evening there where as expected a bunch of "ladiies" offering their services.

I left very early the next morning, so I cannot say anything about the breakfast, which is included in the room price.

General feeling was, that they tried to be a five-star hotel, although it seems they had lost one (if they ever had). Overall this was decent stay, however the hotel, although being clean and seemingly well managed, needs an update soon.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a larger room if you can afford.

great hotel, typical large skyscraper hotel and that is carried in to the staff attitude, which was welcoming and positive. The beach is a bit of a distance and a steep hill is discouraging. Eating at the hotel can be very expensive, instead head out to Sochi town centre or the promenade for a better choice. Try the local Russian restaurants, fantastic fresh food!

Overall is great to stay somewhere its safe, good choice of pools, activities etc......... I would go there again!
