“Another very good stay with Grata Apartments in central Kiev”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This was my second visit to Grata Apartments in Kiev. The driver pickup service from Kiev Borispol Airport (KBP) is very convenient, especially for late night arrivals from western Europe. Sometimes the apartments have slightly dodgy unlit stairwells, but nothing untoward has happened to me and the apartments themselves are safe and secure. Typically quite spacious inside and always to a good quality. Thanks again Grata.

I went to Poland and Ukraine for Euro 2012 and booked three weeks in Kiev at Grata's 53 Pushkinska apartment as unlike other apartment operators they were not trying to rip people off with crazy prices. Unfortunately I was the victim of theft in Poland and this cast doubt over whether I could afford to stay the full three weeks. Grata were very helpful, though, happy to take payment in parts as my plans became clear.

The apartment was in a great location. The building looked unpromising but the apartment itself was excellent: quiet, clean, well furnished.

I intend to go back to Kiev next year and will definitely book with Grata again.

Being in Kiev in the middle of the winter can be a challenge. Our stay was for seven weeks and we spent the first week at the Radisson Blu. After very little work, secured a swanky and very conveniently located one bedroom apartment through Grata. Staff speaks/writes perfect English and is helpful and on call 24 hours a day. We were able to include maid service and a driver in our rent and still save money over the Radisson, all well being warm and toasty in a 9th floor apartment. Kudos to Grata for being easy to work with and providing there services with a smile. NOTE: As of Feb '12 they are not accepting credit card payments in person. Not sure if you can book with CC's online.

I stayed in two different Grata Apartments in Kiev, one on Saksaganskogo Street and one on Krushchatyk, within the space of a few weeks of each other.

I had used Grata's driver pickup service – the driver didn't really speak English but was friendly and picked me up as scheduled at Borispol Airport. He took me straight to my apartment without any problems.

The apartment on Saksaganskogo Street exceeded my expectations – it was very well furnished, completely clean, quiet, safe and secure. Internet was provided by cable (not wireless as advertised) but it was fast and had a reliable connection. The bathroom was good and the kitchen had everything I needed. Tastefully decorated and a great base very close to the centre of Kiev. My only gripe was that the stairwell didn't feel that safe, even during the day. One night I came up the stairs and there was a half naked man draped unconscious over the bannister – odd, but it didn't do me any harm.

The apartment on Krushchatyk wasn't as tastefully decorated as the other one, but was still very well equipped and enormous. Some of the interior features were really nice, it had a large bath, well equipped kitchen and very comfortable bed. You could have had a dance in the living room it was so large. The apartment had a balcony too. Again, the stairwell didn't feel particularly safe (though better than the Saksaganskogo stairwell), though someone was stationed at the bottom of the stairwell 24/7. The final flight of stairs up to the flat was completely unlit. Once inside the flat though it was safe and secure. This apartment was even closer to the centre of Kiev, just a few minutes walk from the main Maydan square.

Grata Apartments offered a great accommodation and driver pickup service and I'd recommend them to anyone coming to stay in Kiev on a short or long-term basis.

First time I tried this agency and I'm satisfied. The service was really good and it seems they have pinpointed what's difficult with renting an apartment instead of hotel. Booking was easy via internet. Service of transfer from airport was exellent on arrival, good price, 25usd, easy to find driver, a good driver who could speak well english and give some advise of Kiev. The driver had key and contract for payment and also checked wifi worked. All of all this was better then check in procedure at a hotel! The apartment (2 Shevchenko Avenue) was roomy, clean, nice, good view and great location mid center. I got e-mail with question about transfer back to airport wich I then booked via mail. Just gave the driver the key. Easy! Only thing was the driver was 20 min late and could no english, but on return transfer this was no big deal. Will use this agency again.

All expats out there know what is to travel and work in 3-5 different countries in one year and have to stay more than a month, which requires a service from the agency providing conditions as mush the same as you have back home. Well guys, in Ukraine you can rely on Grata as you do to a friend you trust. I have traveled for work (in 25 countries) or leisure (more) and stayed always in aparts and I have never, ever had such a perfect service. The best is that the people in Grata exceed the professional attitude and offer their services from the heart, they are happy to see you happy! I wish they were agencies like that in each country I have been to. Life would be so much brighter!...

Room Tip: As I said before, any reasonable request will be immediately and fully satisfied by Grata people. Ju...

We were in Kiev on a four day city break and used Grata Apartments as an alternative to the crazily priced hotels in this city. Lonely Planet recommends apartments as a better value option and having used Grata I would definitely agree wit them.
We were dealt with very professionally throughout the booking process, met at the airport and brought to Grata's offices in the city for keys and then on to our apartment. By the way, don't let the crumbling dingy offices put you off like it did us! The apartments are nice.Every single person we met was extremely helpful especially the cleaning lady who we met once or twice who was a better city guide than any you would pay for!
The apartment itself was about 10 minute walk from the main street Khreschatyk, was warm, clean and spacious. There were a couple of Irish Bars nearby that did a great breakfast but self catering facilities inside were brilliant.
They have a huge range of properties but I can only speak about the one we had, the 2 bedroom one on Lysenko, 3. Lovely place, I highly recommend.
