“Top business hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Spent three nights in the RB in Podil area of the fantastic city of Kiev (granted, i have been here in spring/summer time only, but what a hidden gem this city is). The hotel is brand new which shows. The corner bar is a perfect place to relax and have a tasty snack, with smiling waitresses. Reception is great and the inhouse taxi service a real bonus. The rooms are well equiped with a good bed and pillows. There's nothing negative to be said about this perfect business hotel, except maybe the somewhat noisy airco system (less though than what I experienced in other RB hotels), even if turned off. But didn't keep me from having a good night rest.

Everything about the hotel was excellent! It was ideally situated, the room was very clean & comfortable, the king-size bed was so inviting, the staff were pleasant,helpful & friendly & the food was both generous & delicious. I could not fault the hotel in any way. I would certainly recommend it to others & I would happily return there on a future occasion. The hotel really added dimension to my holiday.

Compared to the other Kiev Radisson this one is slightly downscale but makes up for it with a great location. Situated in old Kiev, this rapidly gentrifying area provides great restaurants and bars, all a short walk away.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of May. It is a very nice hotel.

Pros:
1. Location. Close to lots of interesting things to see, not too far from a Metro stop, not that far of a walk from the Maidan.
2. Staff. Good English. We were traveling with our young daughter and the door man / security guy saw a beautiful dragonfly and gave it to her to hold. Everyone was very, very nice.
3. Breakfast. I have stayed at a lot of good hotels and eaten a lot of good hotel breakfasts (as well as more than my fair share of stale croissants and green bananas), and this is hands down the best hotel breakfast I have ever had. It cost $20 Euros on top of the room price (but kids are free), and although my husband grumbled I think it was worth it. I don't care how picky you are or what your dietary requirements, you will find food, and lots of it, to eat here. I am a vegetarian who hates eggs but likes to have a lot of protein in the morning, and I was very satisfied with the half dozen excellent cheeses, yogurt, and French Fries (OK not really high in protein but still yummy). And the obviously fresh breads were wonderful. They have a waffle station and an omelette station. I could not possibly list all of the food they have, but I have never seen one restaurant serve so many different kinds of food and have all of be top quality.
4. Kind of a random thing to say, but the climate control was the quietest I have ever experienced at a hotel.

Cons
1. The bed was somewhat hard (although, as I am learning, it was apparently pretty plush by Ukrainian standards) and there were no sheets, only blankets. The pillows were cheap foam and were way too thick for me. I expect better bedding from a hotel that is billed as luxury.
2. Overall, I don't know if it deserves the description of luxury that it has received from some quarters. Upscale, yes, definitely, but not what I would really call luxurious.

Overall, it was a great hotel and it would be my first choice if we are ever needing a hotel in Kiev again. Frankly I wouldn't even look anywhere else.

Room Tip: I read in a guide book after we stayed there that suites are not that much more expensive. Our room...

Good location on Podol - close to Andreevskiy Spusk and metro.
Perfect rooms (business class room), very clean, has everything you need.
Breakfast - very very good, you really have a choice, even red caviar and fresh juices.
Very good staff on reception and even smily security.
We would keep this place for us and our friends.

Room Tip: we heard, hotel has Gym, that works 24 hours, but did not try it

This hotel is brand new and has all the amenities. The location is great and is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. The style is very modern and sleek. If the breakfast does not come with your rate, make sure you add it because the spread is not to be missed! They have a lot of good foods, including both local and standard breakfast favorites. This hotel is definitely a little pricy, but you are paying for the extra features and amenities. You can definitely find a cheaper place to stay in Kiev that is just as modern and nice, but it won't have any extras. It depends on preference. One thing I must mention since it matters to me being a woman with longer hair, the conditioner they provide is not satisfactory- bring your own. Also the water from the shower head may have been too soft because no matter what I did the conditioner residue was still in my hair after I dried it. Got back in the shower to see if it was my fault for not rinsing it thoroughly, but that was not the case. I have never encountered that anywhere in my life nor did I encounter it at any other place I stayed in Ukraine. It was quite odd but it would surely not deter me from staying again.
