눉The next ATM isn't shown on Google maps; neither on the Visa-Website; it's about 20 minutes by foot from the hotel, straight down Ljustdorfski Prospekt and then to the left. GPS-Coordinates on Google Maps appx. 46.335627, 30.683282 ; it's a Visa & VisaElectron ATM, not a Visa-Plus ATM. The bank (Oshtchadbank) has "Obmen valjut" outside, but don't mistake that as a sign that you could try to cash-exchange USD/EUR for UAH there, because they won't (but you might have to wait 50 minutes in a queue until you get to that point where they tell you they don't change money). Google maps shows an ATM at a railway station not that far (EXIM bank, appx 30 mins). Don't go there! Wild dogs (appx 10 animals in a pack) block your way. Those cursed wild dogs can be dangerous. Change enough cash at the airport (EXIM-bank right in Kiev-Borispol airport has the best rate). Don't go to the Ibiza beach/Nightclub at Arcadia. They charge you 100 USD for a Sofa with sunshade (but you're not really in the shadow), and another 100 USD for food, and they take away your food if you enter with it, e.g. in the rucksack (they check). Ibiza is a rip-off artist club, worse than Milano-Maritima. Also, Ibiza doesn't accept visa. You need cash. Go somewhere else. Also, Odessa has 2.5 aquaparks (2 in Odessa, one in Ivchevsk). Don't bother to visit them, all of them are miserable (including but not limited to overpriced food&beverage, non-working water-pums, and about 20 mats for the slides for 300-400 concurrent visitors, and endless queues for the slides; the only aquaparks you'll ever go to without ever going down any slide at all). Also, the tram stations can be confusing (3 stops called Ljustdorf). Google shows the station name as "Pyvozavod", but this is incorrect. The tram numbers, fees and times on google maps/transit however are correct.
눇The hotel staff speaks sufficient English. The hotel accepts Visa and is located in the Sauvigon quarter. Sauvignon is a guarded neighborhood with lots of houses/villas. It's safe to go out in the evening (unlike other places). The rooms have air-conditioning and minibar, as well as TV. There is a bus&tram station right outside. Tram 27 takes you to the big Odessa Kolchos and back (1h 50min per way), and autobus 220 takes you to town and back in 1h10min (every 4 minutes for 5 UAH - tram is even cheaper!). Don't wait for autobus number "220A"; the A stands for autobus; the bus number is only "220". You pay the tram/bus when you get out of it (just give the driver a 10 UAH bill, and check the return money if you want to know how much it costs). Station names are not announced in the bus/tram. Use your eyes, look at your watch, and use GPS on your phone! Finding Tram 27 at Odessa-Glavny (Odessa central station) is difficult, but managable (it's about 100-200 meters west of Odessa-Glavny). Watch your city map for the rail-lines. The tram has to drive on them... Finding the autobus at Odessa-Glavny will be very difficult. The taxi to the airpost costs 110-130 UAH at 5:40 in the morning. You can also ask the hotel for a taxi when you book. There are also taxis at the airport. Taxi to/from Arcadia to and from the hotel costs something between 100 and 300 UAH, depending on the time of the day, and takes something between 35 and 60 minutes, depending on traffic. There's a beach with pool (Boro Boro pljash) within 20 minutes walking distance, entrance 100 UAH/day - you can order food from the staff, provided either you speak russian/ukrainian, or you get lucky and the staff speaks English, which it usually doesn't there. There's also the Ёлки-Палки (Jolki-Polki) banja establishment not far.
