With the opening ceremony taking place on Friday, Olympic officials have revealed that three of Sochi’s nine media hotels are yet to be finished.
Emmanuelle Moreau, head of media relations for the International Olympic Committee, said: "We have been made aware of some issues with media representatives.
"As with all projects of this scale, there are some teething problems and we are aware that some media had to be temporarily rebooked into similar accommodation in the same area.
"But we know that all media coming to the Games will be properly looked after and properly accommodated by Sochi 2014."
Mariola Markiel, sales and marketing manager at the Russian National Tourist Office, states that despite the controversy surrounding Sochi's hotels, they are unaware of any issues: "We haven’t received any complaints from our business clients who are now all mostly on site.
"There will always be a few hiccups but a lot of the hotels seem to be moving along as planned. Perhaps this is just the media causing a stir."
So far the Russian Government has spent more than £30bn on the Winter Olympics with the aim of turning Sochi into an all year round tourism destination.
