Lonely Planet review
It once housed public baths built for the city by a Karaite millionaire and more recently the studio of Soviet pop diva Sofia Rotaru (hence the current name). Now this exquisite Franco-Moorish building has been turned into a high-class boutique oasis for Yalta's richest visitors. Book well ahead as this place is almost always full.
Our independent authors have visited Villa Sofia and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Yalta.
