Personally, I dont think this is a very attractive building when compared to the others in the Crimea. It looks very gloomy for a holiday house.

But it looks quite suited to the Crimea's entourage and nature around the mansion.

Well yes I suppose so, it looks as if the stone comes from the mountains behind, and the surroundings make up for what it lacks in architectural beauty !! I would really love to spend a summer on the coast of the Crimea. I hope the Ukrainians are sympathetic to these buildings, and respect the history of the area.

My, what a beautiful palace! it looks very 'homey', with the warm colors, yet tasteful. I love it!

Well its now a hotel, so they would have wanted a more 'homey' affect. You can chose which rooms to stay in the 'Yusupov' apartments being the most expensive followed by the 'Stalin' apartments. I have to admit, I wouldn't mind staying in one of the apartments if only for night, just to be there and explore the surroundings.

I believe those were Stalin's rooms when he stayed in the palace. I believe I read somewhere that Koreiz was his favorite dacha.

Here is the front of Koreiz before the wings were added. Felix Yusupov did not exaggerate when he wrote in his memoirs that Koreiz underwent extensive and very expensive renovations over the years.

The renovations to the estate were extensive not only to the main building, but to the landscape as well.
