An old soviet style building with little reconstruction inside. In general clean a d not bad, except terrible smell of old furniture that remain from typical Soviet hotels. Very poor and unfriendly service at reception. Morning breakfast is poor. Overpriced looking at level of service. The only good and worth point - nice location near parliament and city center.

Very old hotel, nothing modern. I have never seen worse breakfast menu and the staff does not speak English but that´s not so important. On the other hand services are great, rooms clean and its location is excellence - near the city centre. To sum up, you will have a pretty comfortable stay.

An excellent hotel in terms of value, environment and facilities. The only improvement would be a buffet style breakfast. The current system of choosing items from a list is both awkward and formulaic.

I stayed at a nice room. There was ONLY one plug available in the room 1112. Only one. No plugs at the desk at all. Technical personnel that brought me an extension cord was not polite. Bar was closed at 11-20pm, restaurant was closed at 10pm.

Spent a night here while passing through Kiev. Not too easy to find, as public transport was limited nearby. Not the most helpful reception as I failed to exchange euros at the Exchange Desk - apparently mine weren't the latest issue, but still accepted in France without any problem! Hopes of booking a taxi for the following morning were thwarted... More

Hotel was developed in old soviet style, but it is after reconstruction. Receptionist wer very fast and helpfull - Checkin/checkout was without any problems. Room was clean. Good lobby bar with draft beer and pistachio nuts. Taxi order at reception was fast. Good price/services ratio.

Nervous because of the reviews and the price, I was hugely surprised how good it was. Big rooms, helpful staff and a wonderful hearty breakfast. Room had everything and made a fine base for 3 days sightseeing.

This is a soviet style hotel which still holds some past habits such as a breakfast on order... Very nice interior for communist style fans. This time was too hot in the hotel and also 5 stairs to the lift are not pleasant. In any case I can recommend

This hotel was created and builded by soviet authority for soviet party leaders who visited Kiev. So in soviet time it was the best hotel in the city with a limited excess of regular people. Staff was selected accordingly, rooms good equipped, location is premium (governmental quarter). The main advantage of this hotel is its restaurant. It serves all traditional... More

I stayed here due to the location and excellent price. For those things I wasn't disappointed. Wifi was excellent. The room was huge which wasn't expected and the bed was comfortable although the bedding looked to be in the style of Soviet times. In fact - the whole decor throughout the hotel reminds you of Soviet times - modernisation would... More
