Discover Ukaine reports that Odessa's historic Bristol Hotel has opened after nine years of restoration, though it has been operating for a while. Part of the Vertex Hotel Group network, it is one of three 5-star hotels in Ukraine's Black Sea resort. The architect Mykola Levanevskiy told DU, "This is probably the only restoration in Odessa in which there was an attempt to save the old appointments: the mouldings, the sculpture, the ceilings. Many things were done according to pre-revolutionary photos. The restored Bristol is almost completely faithful to what Alexander Bernardazzi [the hotel’s original architect] built."
