“Not fully Radisson standard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The hotel is in a good location. The hotel is a little out of "Radisson Standard". Hard to point out details, it is a general feeling. The single beds are really small. Not too comfortable. Breakfast is OK. Bar not so attractive.

Having traveled many times to Kyiv and having stayed in several different hotels (mostly in the Podol area) we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of the room, superb breakfast and excellent service provided at this hotel. Genadij at the front desk was exceptionally helpful and provided excellent service. This is our new "hotel of choice" in Kyiv!

Very good breakfast with plenty of choice. Clean and comfortable room with especially comfortable bed. Internet is free and works well. English papers are downloaded and available in the bar area. Shame the chairs in the bar area are so uncomfortable - so low that they're terribly difficult to get out of! Just across the road from the hotel is a lovely bread/pastry shop. It has a small number of tables and is a good place for a light lunchtime snack. I'd recommend the lemon tarts! The hotel has an Italian restaurant. I didn't eat there but business acquaintances recommended it. The city centre is a pleasant 15 minute downhill walk away. The return journey uphill takes a bit longer.

Very good hotel in Kiev. A bit far from the center of the city, but acceptable. Nice rooms, free internet and very good breakfast. Freindly staff, quick check-in and check out. not cheap. Nothing else to wish while stay for 1 night for business.

Nicely decorated and well appointed rooms - even those out on the front of the hotel are quiet inside.

What was surprisingly good was the food served in the bar - (which I think is also the room service menu). Very good carpaccio, and a very nicely presented and tasty fillet steak too - at a decent price. Simple sandwiches were good there too. It's very rare that i eat in a business hotel restaurant more than once - they usually just aren't that inspiring and I can find somewhere else by day two - but actually was more than happy with this.

Breakfast was good too.

Some reviewers have passed comment on the grasp of the English language of the staff - I had no difficulty with this at all - certainly the front-line staff had excellent English. OK - the chambermaids weren't exactly fluent, but neither would I expect them to be!

Hotel is a good well renovated hotel. Staff is local but they have a good command of English. Even their trianees are excellent. Rooms are comfortable and like all the Radisson Hotel they have an excellent bed. Rooms have either bath or shower. And the shower room is great. Bath has been removed and well equiped with a spacious shower. Breakfast on Sunday was a bit of a miss. At 10.30 certain items at the buffet were finished. Asking for refill resulted in some long faces while yet the buffet was till 11. Mention this at the reception was shoftly and professionally handled. Unfortunate is that the walk to the city center is down hill, while returning is quite a climb. From the airport you can take a taxi. You can negotiate the taxi fare. I paid 360 of the local currency to the hotel as it was during rush hours. Return I negotiated for 300.

This hotel is in a great location , walkable from it to all the main attractions of downtown Kiev. Unfortunately, they want to be great, but are not ready for prime time. The big issue is the staff are not trained well enough , nor is their English good enough. The other big problem was that the shower left a flood in the bathroom every time.

We really had a good experience, but they could do better.
