“Its far from fancy - but a good place to shut your eyes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I'd stay there again no issues - but its very basic & grubby.
Its old & dated inside the entrance & all rooms/corridoors/elevators etc. The carpet is average - old & a bit smelly/smoky (like most ex-soviet places).
The staff are superb - helpful, no issues at all with english.
The breakfast is local food - NOT the usual western stuff, but no issues & it was great food anyway!

The bed was made from an old Soviet tank & they just threw a sheet over it (didnt bother me). The concerning thing was there were huge amounts of large black hairs under the bet cover & on the outside of the covers. It wasnt my hair - so it appears someone was sleeping with a gorilla in there, ewww.

A few basic improvements & attention to detail & it'd be a MUCH better place to stay.

Stayed July 2013, traveled solo

That hotel is located in the centre of Kiev, and all the famous monuments are not far. The service always want to take care of you, which tells us, that they are good. The rooms are so-so. The view on the central street is good for foreign tourists, because many buildings are placed near that hotel. The breakfast is included, but if you have some relatives in Kiev, it is not a problem, because Kiev has many nice restaurants.

That hotel have a good location and not so bad breakfasts, but the main problem is not properly working WI-FI. If you came here for work or for the rest you should know it! Have a nice time and enjoy your time

Wanted to escape the hotel as soon as I entered the room. It's not just the problem of hotel style, which is 100% soviet, it is a bad smell in the room, very unpleasant bed covers, unattractive curtains, gloomy corridors. The hotel seems not to have been renovated during last decades. Very frustrating experience. Check the janitors room for ironing your clothes to get some additional flair of Soviet Union. It is definitely the worst and the gloomiest place I've stayed in.

Location - very central location great in all respects. Just next to the subway station.
Personnell - very accomodating.
Breakfast - good selection of Ukranian dishes, no fruit.

I was there three/four times in my business trips. Its old soviet hotel in the centre of Kiev. This hotel has a very good location near with shopping mall and undergraund. From time to time someone called to every room and asked about ukrainian girls. Its very strange situation. But if you need place for one night - its you choice.

I stayed at Kozatsky for 10 days in September 2012. It is a 35-year old soviet-style hotel located right next to the Independence Square in Kiev. I learned that previously soviet military personal stayed there. Obviously, bathrooms are not perfect, however, I had a small balcony with a nice view. Where in Europe you will find such a bargain for $110 /night? It is close to everything: city attractions, subway, starting point for Chernobyl tour, ..... Hotel personal was very friendly and helpful, plenty of services like currency exchange are there. Breakfast had a huge selection of Russian and Ukrainian cousin. My wife liked it too and would stay there again.

Room Tip: I was in double superior room.
