Our review is based on our visit in October 2013.
We (a couple) had a very good time sitting at one of the benches at this pretty street (at odd number side) surrounded by tall buildings built right after WWII. Even that these buildings are not New York's skyscrapers, their architecture style, size and greatness still wonder you.
On this street, there are many restaurants such as "Puzata Hata" at Khreshchatyk 15 (entrance through the arch) and shops like "Roshen" at Khreshchatyk 29. So if there is a bad weather, there are always indoors places with reasonable prices, where you can spend a good time.
The only negative part of Khreshchatyk Street is that some people are creepy there. For instance, there was a young woman, who was trying to sell parfumes to everyone, who was sitting at the benches. As another example, there was another poor old woman, who was asking for a lighter in order to find a company to talk. In general, be aware of the people and don't let nice views to corrupt your alertness.
Even if it is very hard to miss this street when you are in the center of Kiev, we want to recommend you to spend couple of hours there walking from Besarabsky market till Independence Square and back while checking stores there. Or whatever way you wish!
