Well, I still have a large number of hotels, nightclubs and restaurants to comment upon for you dear readers…..I think I can say readers now……as I had 75 yesterday alone…….so thank you one and all!!
What?……Yes I know most of them come to look at the pictures of the ladies……I can see that because my “Admin” facility tells me what has been put into the search engine to find me.
Eh?………Yes I know some of the readers will have trouble with long words……that’s why in England we have newspapers like “The Times”…..for grown-ups and the Daily Sport for those who can only be stimulated by visual representation.
……..Yes, I’m afraid to say it is a daily “newspaper” in the UK.
Anyway, there are no “girly pics” in this post………as the Continental is a 4 Star hotel……..so therefore anything involving “girly’s” there, has at the very least, a thin veneer of respectability.
The Continental is to be found on Deribasovskaya in the City Centre. In 2005 it under went a massive “face lift” and is now a very impressive building both inside and out.
Yes….I know, looks Ok doesn’t it. Well it should, it was built in the middle of the 19th Century and was designed by the famous….at least in these parts……architect, Mr F.V. Gonsiorovsky.
The hotel, like all Odessa hotels, does not accommodate that many guests……..a total of 32 rooms are available at the Continental…….although the rooms are large……some as big as the average Ukrainian apartment.
The hotel also has it’s own restaurant called “Voyage”………which is pretty damned good……so good I would eat there more often, if I didn’t have 10% discount cards at 2 other restaurants!!
The hotel is orientated not only for the tourist, with it’s own indoor swimming pool, sauna, fitness centre, massage service and solarium…….but is also geared towards the business visitor and provides a 24 hour night menu for those arriving at all hours, VIP service at the airport, car hire, the usual laundry and shoe cleaning services, dry cleaning and will take care of any emergency medical difficulties you may find yourself in……..like getting your toe stuck up the tap!!
It also provides a conference room, scanning, copying, internet, secretarial, interpreter and basically a full back-office service to the business traveller…..including assistance with local legal and notarising services, together with a booking and collection service for any train or plane tickets you will require for any on-ward journey.
