Staff of the hotel is always helpful and always smiling. Food is very nice (even though for some it may seem overpriced), 24-hour service and some very good bottles of Crimea wine in their...

We had arranged for an English speaking guide in advance, who met us with a driver at the Simferopol airport and accompanied us to Sebastopol and Yalta. It must be said that it would be difficult to...

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

“I prefer rooms on 4th floor with the mountain view”

“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.”
