Reading Internet comments I was afraid to meet USSR –style hotel. But I was surprised: reception desk service is very fast, polite & professional, rooms are cozy ( there are few remarks) , wide choice of Buffet breakfast food, large pool with clear & warm sea water , nice infrastructure, restaurants, car rental(from 999 rubles per day), luggage room for free,great location. They let me leave the room & check out at 14:00 instead midday. So I am surprised)

We came back today from Zhemchuzhina. It was our first visit & we were aware because of the negative comments we read. I booked Studio room in April with getting the early booking discount. I contacted the reservation department to get some information of the room & reservation clerk was very polite & helpful. This made me calm down. I ordered the hotel-airport transfer by price 1600 rubles. It is not so expensive comparing the rate of local taxi drivers of 5000 rubles. They picked us up on Mercedes. After checking in we entered the room & we were satisfied. The room looks absolutely similar with its photos herehttp://www.zhem.ru/rooms_and_rates/studio/ Cool! We were excited. Furniture is new,white, modern. Bedclothes have being changed daily. Housekeeping is good. As I understood all rooms are going to be renovated before the Olympics. 1-5 floors were under reconstruction but the noise did not disturb us. We were on BB basis & the breakfast was good. The menu of 3 beach restaurants is similar but tasty. We preferred Neptun restaurant( it is the newest & the best sea view) .Excellent huge sport swimming pool, 2 tennis courts. Pool area is clean, white. We were making here aerobics in the morning. We stayed at Zhemchuzhina 16-23 of June 2013 & we enjoyed Sochi & the hotel. The city is very calm & clean, not crowded. You may walk in the evening. We did not meet any aggressive people.
