5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Very good western standard service, clean rooms and good facilities. A little expensive for the city.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are fine

In Ukraine hospitalty has a long way to go yet! In Kiev, hotels are so expensive with Sovietesque customer service! It is a beautiful old building redone inside and modern. They rank it as 5 star, and maybe for Kiev it is. But it is not up to par with a five star European or American hotel.

It is so painfully expensive! But then again almost all hotels in Kiev - in Ukraine - are inexplicably expensive.

I can say Ukraine is ready to join Europe when its hospitality sector gets a severe jolt!

The Premier Palace surely is not a value hotel, but when you consider what you get then it definitely worth USD 200 plus per night.

I've now stayed the second time in this hotel and can confirm that its quality is truly "Premier". And also like many other "Palace" hotels where you may be staying in an old bunker, this one feels like a new hotel but with the charm and style of a traditional and sophisticated hotel.

Some of the highlights worth mentioning are:
- The rooms are very nice and you have all the goodies and amenities one could wish for. Everything was clean, in working order and very comfortable.
- The breakfast is a treat in itself as it offers a stunning view over the city of Kiev. The food is also first rate, with a choice from traditional American (with freshly cooked eggs to order) to European (with cold cuts, Cheese, Muesli, Bread, Nutella etc.) to traditional Ukrainian delicacies.
- The Fitness Center including a large pool, Sauna and Steam Bath is a delight and one of the best ones I've been to.
- Unique: The carpet in the Elevators feature the day of the week and thus are being changed on a daily basis. Quite a good reminder when you are "on the road".
- The location is in the heart of Kiev and the staff is competent and welcoming.

Would stay there again without doubts. Unfortunately I don't have any real time comparisons as this is the only one hotel I've so far stayed in Kiev. But if you are willing to pay USD 200 plus per night, there is very little risk that you'll be disappointed.

Wonderful hotel, great pool and fitness area. Beds are a bit too firm. Try the breakfast on the top floors, one of the best hotel breakfast I've ever had.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

I have stayed in the Premier Palace Hotel for two nights during my business visit to Kiev. The hotel is comfortably positioned and is very nicely designed inside. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you might need. The breakfast place has a view over the whole city and is really beautiful. The only problem is an extremely unfriendly and even unpolite staff: starting from the receptionist and ending with the waitresses of the bar. I talked to some other guests of the hotel and they were all of the same opinion. In the end, it was quite disappointing.

Was ripped off in the Taboo lounge bar to the tune of £600. Hotel distanced themselves from the bar even though it's on the 8th floor of their hotel. Stay away unless you want to be stung too.

This hotel is top quality in service and staff. The gym is amazing, and they also have a great pool. Breakfast is included in price, and it was a good variety of healthy choices. The view from their 8th floor is a nice way to start the day. Rooms are standard, a somewhat noisy air-con, but otherwise fine. It´s situated very central, and walking distance to a lot of restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms which faces the backyard.
