“Excellent location, a positive experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The location is outstanding at the Independence square with its large underground shopping center and metro. We, like most guests, had a view from the room over the roofs of central Kiev. We had a little suite of 3 rooms (at a budget price) with windows in 3 directions. You can still feel old Soviet times in the hotel, but with a modern ukranian human fouch. .The shower was probaly not renovated since the sixties, The shower curtain rail was made of old partly rusty waterpipes. But everything worked well, and the room was comfortable. The cleaning staff tried to make a good job, but the shower was a hopeless challenge. If you are looking for tasteful elegance, this is not for you, but such hotels are quite boring. Here you can feel some of the history! Renovation was ongoing in the lobby, and in some years this probably will become an expensive luxury hotel among others. -The breakfast was adequate, but not very impressive, -especially the bread was dull. We think the hotel was good value för the money, but you must have the right expectations!

Good location, nice rooms, bed not super comfortable. Good breakfast variety. Public areas need help though. I didn't like the idea that there was girlie show in the club in the hotel. Room had fridge and balcony which were nice

I have now stayed 3 times in Kiev. And for the price you cannot beat this hotel. My room was newly decorated with Wifi. The view was amazing from my room as well. Location is also great. I would definitely stay here again because of the price. This is not a five star hotel by any means but the prices for the intercontinental and others with all of the services are at least 3 times as much as here.

The location of the hotel couldn't be better, in the Independence Square (Maidan Nezhalezhnosti), near the subway station and a lot of restaurants at Khreschatik.
The building looks quite old, but the rooms are renovated, so it wasn't so bad, althought do not expect western standards, especially cleanliness in the bathroom could be better.
The staff was the worst I have ever met in hotels. They are feeling like 'the master' there and you are the petitioner. I think it's a habit taken from communism times, but it is really annoying.
Breakfast was quite simple, better to eat somewhere nearby.
To sum up - an average hotel with not so good staff but in a great location.

This hotel is correct, nice suite on the top of the hotel with the best view of Kiev !!!
Ask for the room 1406.
The location is top, 1 minute to walk to Krishatik !
You have a nice 2 bathroom, a large bedroom and a small living room, but the view is just incredible, day and night.
The breakfast is good and you have choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top and also with view on the independance square !
