The Londonskaya Hotel is a historic four star 19th century hotel in the center of Odessa, Ukraine, belonging to the same company as the nearby Bristol Hotel.

Description[edit]

The stylish four star 19th century hotel is in the centre of Odessa. It belongs to the same company as the nearby five-star Bristol Hotel which is roughly twice the size.[1]

Early history[edit]

The building housing the Londonskaya Hotel was originally constructed between 1826–1828 as a private residence, designed by architect Francesco Boffo in the early Italian Renaissance style. The hotel was opened in 1846 by Jean-Batiste Karuta, a French confectioner. It was significantly remodeled from 1899–1900 by architect J.M. Dmitrenko, and renovated in 1988.[2] The name of the hotel, like the nearby Bristol Hotel, is thought to have suggested luxury at that time.[3]

Famous Guests[edit]

Famous guests of the hotel have included: Emperor Pedro II of Brazil, Anton Chekhov, Alexander Kuprin, Robert Louis Stevenson, Ivan Ayvazovsky, Henri Barbusse, Theodore Dreiser, Louis Aragon, Elsa Triolet, Isadora Duncan, Marcello Mastroianni, Nikita Mikhalkov, Oleg Yankovsky, Vladimir Putin, Victor Yuschenko, Leonid Kuchma, Jean Claude van Damme, Paolo Coelho.[2]
