Excellent hotel which is well positioned to explore Kiev. Great choice of food at breakfast and in the restaurant on the upper floor with nice panoramic views. Located next to the venicular rail to the upper part of the city, and a terrific choice of restaurants within 10 mins walk of the hotel. Stayed here many times, but I can... More

I believe it's a great value for money. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Needed laundry & ironing services - got them very quickly and was satisfied with the result. Very close to the river's bank, and the surroundings are generally pleasurable for walks.

Stayed there for 2 nights. Room is pretty in shape, with large bed, free wifi and a number of TV channels. Shampoo set is of a good quality, so if you use nothing else but a supermarket shampoo and body lotion, you can leave those at home. Toothbrush and shaving kit available free of charge at request, but dont expect... More

I had to stay some days in this location as my preferred one was fully booked - it was quite ok! Rooms were clean, the heater though was not controllable so I was forced to open the window totally. Our business meetings were held in the restaurant on top of the hotel which served quality food and drinks! No complaints!

With this great location and nice rooms this hotel could be much better. But... As soon as I checked in, the room was very hot. I tried to operate AC (that does not have any clear instruction), but finally had to call for help. When help arrived he explained to me how AC works and put it on "cold". Unfortunately... More

Next to the funicular and metro as well as bring in a convenient walking location in Kiev. Staff speaks English. We arrived by train hours before check in time, but since they had rooms available they let us check in immediately. Very complete breakfast buffet included.

Large, comfy rooms, attentive service but chiefly - a great hotel location, right next to cable-car going upwards. And city centre within easy access by foot. Lovely views over the river, excellent selection of eateries within walking distance. Beware breakfast is lousy, limited and cold
