Future participants and guests of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2014 will remember Sochi as one of the most comfortable Winter Games destinations. Sochi’s hotel complex is already considered as one of the best health resorts in the country. However, by the time the Games arrive to Sochi, the resort will have been further transformed into one of a truly world-class level. In fact, everyone who visits the Games, be they IOC members, officials, journalists, fans - will be offered stylish, modern and above all comfortable hotel accommodation.
Russia's leading developers are hard at work building new hotels as well as refurbishing existing ones. By the start of the Games in Sochi, in accordance with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) requirements, 42000 hotel rooms will be created, offering a range of luxury five star to budget two star accommodation.
“Loo,” a three-star hotel complex, has already been completely repaired and the "Sochi", "Russia" and "Zolotoy Kolos" sanatoriums have been substantially reconstructed.
The Sochi 2014 Organising Committee has developed plans for accommodating the different groups of guests and athletes. The athletes will be living in Olympic villages, ideally located in the mountain and coastal clusters. The main Olympic village will be built in the Olympic Park itself. The mountain Olympic Village will be constructed in a traditional alpine style and will be located very close to the Ski Center, the Freestyle Center and the Snowboard Park. Another mountain Olympic village will be situated at Psekhako Ridge, close to "Laura" Cross-country Ski & Biathlon Center.
Members of the IOC and international sports federations will be staying in four and five star hotels in the Imeretinskaya Valley, very close to the main Olympic village.
Special villages for the media will also be constructed in Krasnaya Polyana and in the Imeretinskaya Valley.
