“Will take my son next time. Very nice!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I visited Lviv more than 20 times and only once stayed in Citadell Inn. Very nice rooms - fashioned! Breakfasts wery served in very nice way. It's expensive and not very comfortable to reach old city by foot. But any way if you want to spend romantic week end in Lviv - you will like Citadell.

Room Tip: I payed for standard room. It was big and nice

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We arrived at the hotel, to a warm, friendly and efficient check in, and we're shown promptly to our rooms. The rooms were large and spacious with a comfortable bed, plenty of storage, flat screen TV, safe and complimentary mineral water. Only thing missing was a kettle, I like to be able to make my own coffee when I wake up early.. Before the 7am breakfast.
The rooms were spotlessly clean, separate WC and shower which were very modern, with nice towels and robes, and really nice toiletries.
There are only 26 rooms in the hotel so it always felt quiet, and a real sanctuary, but only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Lviv. The hotel is situated at the top of a small, yet steep hill.
The breakfast was served in the top floor restaurant, with wonderful views of the town. There was good coffee, toast, yoghurt, cereal and juices, plus an individual served breakfast, meat, cheese, fruit, cakes etc.. And a choice of hot food made to order, omelette, ham and eggs.. Service was great..
The outside bar was a really nice place to sit, they have a really good grill, shipshape, coffee, drinks etc. Beautifully presented and manicured gardens.
One of the most important things when I book a hotel nowadays is free WiFi, this worked fine, in and out of the hotel, even with the 1metre thick walls.
Overall a great place to stay, staff were wonderful, ambience fantastic, and a quality place. Only slight negatives, no coffee in the room, and although the walls are thick, so you will hear no noise from adjoining rooms, any noise from the corridor or outside travels well, probably all the more noticeable as it's so quiet there.
Would I stay here again? Yes.. No question.

Don't know where to start! We know almost everyone in this hotel. that's because we've being staying in it since they've opened, I guess. They are just great! I won't write about the location and the fortress it's setted in, about design, rooms and prices, all that you can read in previous comments and on the website. It worth every penny you pay for this hotel. The food is great, service is excellent, beds are very comfy.
I've been in Lviv hundreds of times, literally, and I stayed in different places, and of course there are lots of other good places to live in Lviv (cos, for young students, I guess, Citadel Inn IS quite pricey) but this hotel is THE BEST! This is the place you want to be, you want to come back again and again.
As a metter of fact, after being staying in Citadel during previous couple of years, my Husband and I decided to host our wedding in this hotel in 2011. We invited all our friends to join us in our celebration to Citadel and guess what, now, when they come to Lviv, they stay in Citadel!

Stylish, historic, *quiet* inside the heavy walls of this fortress, very short taxi ride to town or a walk and a tram ride if you want a little adventure. It is beautifully refurbished, but not *completely* transformed -- you have elegance, but you never really forget that you are in a genuine old fortress, with scars of ordnance on the otherwise immaculate outside walls to mark the true identity. You wonder who walked and ran down the halls, who shouted what. Decoration emphasizes the role of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, of which this region long was a part. Upon returning to Lviv, I'll strongly consider staying here again. There's a tradition in ex-USSR you might not know about -- the wedding party visits the town's greatest sites and memorials, and takes pictures -- this may involve 6 or 8 mini-trips. In the warmer months, you can see wedding parties almost every day here and certainly on weekends, and the public is welcomed in. Everybody is respectful, and so the site plays a role as one of the cities beloved sites as well as a hotel and restaurant. Get a photo near the playful cat statues near the entrance!

Room Tip: If you can splurge a bit, ask for room 201, right across from the elevator and steps from the the ba...

When I am in Lviv I live in this hotel. This is really old historical military building that was super modern renovated in to hotel just a few years ago. Hotel has a verry butiful green area around and nice summer open restaurant. But that is for sure that the restaurant on the roof is the best view and best cuisine in Lviv. Service stuff is very kind and verry helpful. I can definetly recomend this hotel to those who got used to comfort and good things. It is not cheep and not extra money - it costs its prise!

Very stylish and quite place. Clean and spacious room, great breakfast, safe parking. 10 minutes walk to city center. A bit too expensive for Lviv, but that's ok for it's quality. The only problem was absence of normal gym and sauna in cold winter day. Best choice in Lviv.

Room Tip: Standart room is good value for money.
