Olympic Games 2014  (18 Answers)

I am travelling alone to experience my second winter Olympics in Sochi. I am having trouble finding a hotel and am wondering if it is because I am too early (as many are still being built) or if they are sold out (which would not be good). Also, in looking for places to stay in Sochi, I definitely want to be centralized and among the vibrant happenings of culture that the Olympics bring. Basically, any info on hotels, restaurants, and nightlife would be much appreciated!

I am writing this message at an internet cafe in which I have to use the cafe's computer (couldn't quite figure out how to change the settings on my computer to take its network line) at 60 RUR/hr, but would much prefer to just go to a cafe with wi-fi and nurse a piva, getting online with my own computer. I know there is a restaurant (Capri) that is far out from the center that has wi-fi (there is an ad.)

Would like to stay in Sochi & ski in Krasnaya Polyana  (4 Answers)

I would like to go to Sochi in the winter of 2012-2013 for a month or so, and ski at the great resorts in Krasnaya Polyana. I think the visa (I am USA citizen) will not be a problem, and will be wanting to rent an apartment in Sochi. About every other day or so, I will want to take the train up to Krasnaya Polyana, and hopefully take some bus or marshrutka to the different ski areas from the train station there.

So for this to work out, I will need:

- an apartment to rent in Sochi, close to the train line to Krasnaya Polyana, or at least accessible by a bus or marshrutka to the train station that goes to Krasnay Polyana. -> I think this will not be a problem as Sochi is a very big summer destination and there should be plenty of apartments available in the winter.

- good schedule of trains to Krasnaya Polyana. -> I think this also not be a problem, but I would like to see the schedule.

- bus or marshrutka (mini-bus service from the train station in Krasnaya Polyana to the different ski resorts. -> I am not sure if this available. It seems that as a world class ski area, there should be easy transportation between the different resorts and the ski areas, but I have not been able to locate such information via the internet.

Any information on this would bu very helpful. срасибо

Sochi In March

I'm considering accompanying a friend on a business trip to Sochi in March. I'll be by myself most of the time (American female)and without a car. We can stay at the Pearl Hotel (where my friend is being put up for the work) or we can stay somewhere else (company will pay for). I don't speak Russian, but love to travel and see new places. Anybody recommend, and if so hotel, food and sightseeing/activity tips (remember no car) appreciated - or do I save my miles for somewhere better.
