I stayed there for several days and I was surprised positive by size of my room. A balcony to sit outside and nice price for a suite. Hotel is on a boat and surroundings are nice but a bit from city centre. Problem was you listen everything your neighbours do and first night it was a sex show all night... More

I stayed at this hotel just to get away for an evening by myself. I live in Kyiv with my family full-time. The hotel itself was fun, right on the river. The hotel staff was friendly and English-speaking to accommodate tourists. However, the area around the hotel is not very nice nor does it feel safe to explore after dark.

This was a great room with a fantastic view!! let down by lack of sound proofing between rooms and air con not working . Never tried the food as I knew of a great restaurant in the city, the river view is a must booking

This little gem offers a great view of the river (it is actually floating on the river) from the deck of the restaurant. It is a little out of the way, but little beats sitting on the river and watching life go by after a long intercontinental flight. Rooms are clean, price is good, food is excellent.

I stayed there for one night with my wife, we've just married. So we were a bit romantic but I really appreciated our stay because of fine conditions and service. IMHO really the best thing abour Bakkara hotel is a place where it's situated - on the bank of the Venice island of the Dnipro river. That's why you will... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the room had modern, artsy furniture, which I liked. The river view was really nice, as you could see the skyline of the city, with its golden domes in the distance. The only problem was that the walls were very thin, and my neighbors were very very loud and drunk. Fortunately... More

The hotel is a converted ferry boat, floating in the middle of the very wide river. Kiev center is miles away and walking to/from the hotel is inconceivable. The river valley is actually incredibly deep so taxis have to climb for about a mile just to get out of the river valley and onto the plateau where the City is... More
