Keeping in mind that this is not Western Europe or the US...the hotel is great. Clean, nice room, friendly and helpful staff, lots of food nearby, metro station just outside the door. If I come back to Kiev, I'll stay here.

While not inexpensive, everything about this hotel was to our entire satisfaction: hotel amenities; friendliness, helpfulness of front desk staff; help with currency exchange; help with our subsequent journey; more than adequate buffet breakfast; close to several good local restaurants. Highly recommended

I spent 2 nights at this hotel on a business trip. The hotel is in the center in a very good location and it looks stunning from the outside.

Impressive breakfast and a quality hotel. Almost perfect location: just near the restaurants area in Podil, 1 minute to the tube station and a 10-15 minutes walk up hill to the churches area. Nothing too extraordinary about rooms, but the staff is very polite and helpful. Boutique Hotel is not a hidden gem, but it's an honest experience. Just a... More

Great location to base your stay in Kiev. Helpful staff and good sized room, one of the best showers I've had in a hotel recently! Breakfast was slightly disappointing, but everything else made this a great place to stay.
