I´ve stayed in this hotel many times, and as i am always on the run it took me some time to write about it. This hotel is located right in the heart of Kiev, walking distance from all the most interesting places and from the Central Train Station. Service is not bad, Ukraine´s Service Standards and not high, but here... More

Expres is a kinda old hotel, located near train station (10 min walk) and metro station (5 min walk). Across hotel is a park. Rooms are decent and clean. Restaurant on 16th floor serves good food. Quite good prices for Kyiv. Staff speaks good English.

Don't leave your valuables in a room. The cleaners are thieves. I left my mobile phone in a bathroom on a white towel and it's gone. The cleaner denied seeing it. They think cleaning the room means to do the bed only.

Although they were helpful and polite, there is still a lot to learn about quality and customers' needs for people running this hotel. Especially if you don't speak Russian or Ukrainian. They should slow down with cleaning the tables in front of people still eating.

A typical soviet style building with worn-out decoration and tapestry but nice view of kiev from the restaurant (on 16th floor) and good located. in my opinion, it would need serious renovation specially taking into account the newly built hilton and the ibis hotel on next doors offering much better comfort and standards. Breakfast is good with decent choice but... More

This hotel has undergone a significant renovation and now has modern PVC window frames, clean bright bedroom walls and in room TV and mini bar. However, the bathroom in our room, although having been improved, was very small. In fact, in my opinion, it was so small that it was not acceptable to Western standards.

A vintage motel that was a wonderful alternative to the usual! The room was updated with a king bed, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. There was the personal touch with hand painted stenciling around the room! Loved the friendly Front Desk people. They were very helpful with restaurant menus on hand and recommendations. We will return next year when the... More
