I was hesitant to say "Yes" to whether I recommend this hotel to others. Considering such a volatile political situation in Kiev, the location of the place could put your life in danger. Please consider the fact that the hotel is located around the corner from the President Administration and the Rada (Parliament). I felt very unsafe during my June-July... More

Although the price of the hotel is lower than the other hotels of the same level, overall quality is not lower. Check in was flawless. The room was large and quite, however needs a bit renovation. Breakfast was ok. Would stay for the next time.

We were here last year and this hotel is still excellent. Great location, good service, large quiet rooms. Staff accommodated our last minute group-size change with room changes, no problem. WiFi in rooms was excellent - but could not get wifi in restaurant. We were here during the demonstrations in November-December 2013 and this felt like a secure location, even... More

The hotel is located fairly central in Kiev. The check in session was a joke. At first they wouldn't honor the online booking we made half an hour earlier (thru a reputable online booking site), since they claimed to be full. And by the way, the front desk dragons claimed, same day reservations are not accepted after 2pm by rule.... More

All the main important features in a hotel are there: Great facilities (very beautiful lobby, bar, restaurant area); comfortable rooms (spacious and clean rooms with good bed and pillows, good shower, 2 minibars, free water); great breakfast (breakfast à la carte very good); top location (few blocks from the subway and Independence Square with easy access all over town).

I shouldn't be too hard on this hotel because it was many ways excellent. The room I had was spacious, clean, tidy and well equipped. The free wifi no matter where you were in the hotel was a great feature. The staff, although sometimes wrestling with their English, were friendly and helpful. The only odd thing was breakfast. No buffet... More

We just completed a short stay in Kiev at the Natsionalny Hotel. This hotel was easy to book on booking.com and it has turned out to be a great place. The front desk and floor staff have been helpful and pleasant. There are enough staff with English skills to make up for my lack of Ukrainian and Russian. We booked... More

I was very positively surprised with this hotel, did not expect this high level and kind client-service. The hotel is located in a nice green area between Khresyatik and Arsenalna metro station, near to Ukrainian parliament house. It has a very nice lobby with beautiful old-times design chandeliers (which are actually ordered brand-new). Hotel has a fresh renovation - the... More

This hotel is bringing you back in time in a very good and surprising sense. It is very clean and neat, yet all the interior design still remembers Soviet Union. We loved the food and the room. Service is helpful and speaks English.

My Ukrainian friends warned me that Kiev hotels were in the rule crummy and overpriced, so I was a bit wary. Booking.com, however, suggested a room in the Natsionalny for a very decent price (75 euro incl breakfast, so this must have been pre-EC2012) and I took it, just for it's location. But it turned out to be brilliant. The... More
