Our stay here was excellent. We had one of the suites facing the river (definately recomended) and had no complaints about this property or the staff (who were excellent). The out of the way location at the Hydropark lets you have a quiet place in the city away from the noise.. The feeling of being on a riverboat cruise and... More

This floating hotel has a neat concept, and is quite well decorated in a contemporary style. Make sure you check the location, it moved 8-10 months ago from one shore to the other..and it can be confusing. At least one taxi driver had no idea where it was! On location - its not in walking distance of the centre. You... More

The hotel is located directly on the river and close to the nature park. Nice room is deluxe room. Standart rooms is so small, but have all arrangment for even 4*, good acoustics, so you know what is doing your neighbors - it's a big minus!

I had read the reviews here before going to the hotel, and was natuarally worried. Unfortunately i had been booked by a company, so there was little i could do about it. I stayed there for 3 nights. The Good Rooms are small, but pretty nice, apart from the ridiculously small bathroom! Wifi is free, which is great, and works... More

I have both positive and negative feelings about this hotel. The location is really bad, quite away from the city center, the shuttle bus doesnt go according to the scedule, sometimes, even refuse to drive. The Hotel's entrance should be cleaned and and ledder which leads to the hotel doesnt look trustworthy, and that green carpet looked really cheep. The... More

This is a floatel. It's in a large 5 floor houseboat. I did book a better class of room - worth the very little extra. It had a really great view of the river. The room was clean and well maintained. No bath - just a wet deck shower, but quite satisfactory. The room was a large size. Has mini-bar,... More

My friend and I stayed here from the 10-15 March. It's a riverboat, unsurprisingly, on the river, near the Hydro Park. It was excellent. Way above our expectations. Modern, clean, excellent staff, of which there was always one who could speak English, 24 hours a day. If you wanted anything and got a Ukrainian only speaking member of staff, they... More

I have never had such a disappointing stay in my entire life. My friend and I already had a slight confusion where the hotel would be as it seems to show up on two places on google map!

I stayed here 24-29 November 2010. It's a very nice hotel for the most part, but with a few flaws. The location isn't the best. It is right on the river, on the opposite side of the wonderful downtown of Kiev. I took a taxi into town and back every day and that gets a little pricey. There isn't anything... More
