“The nice stay in Oselya”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Stay in Oselya has been a pleasure. My wife and I felt to be at home.
Oxana and her team were so kind to help us in our first experience in KIev and in Ukrain.
The hotel is located in a very quite zone of the city not so far from the center. It is little but very nice and clean. We appreciated so much the three breakfast options with which you can last till the dinner.

Try Oselia and ejoy it

We stayed at Oselya in May 2012, and we absolutely loved it. We did our research and chose Oselya because of the great reviews they had on Trip Advisor, combined with a good price. We spoke to them ahead of time and arranged to have dinner at Oselya on our first night, since we would be getting in in the evening and didn't want to worry about going all the way into the City and back again, as we had an early morning the next day. Because of bad weather and a tour that ran long, we were about an hour later than we said we would be and came to the hotel, drenched from the rain, at about 9 pm. It was no problem. The young lady at the front desk (who was really helpful, and also really funny when she tried to teach my boyfriend some Ukrainian phrases) made the dinner for us and told us she would call us when it was ready. She showed us to our room, which was beautiful. Balconies, a decent sized bathroom, and very clean and comfortable. When she called us for dinner, we were shocked - it was about 5 courses, and SPECTACULAR. It was seriously one of the best meals I had my entire vacation. The russian salad and borscht were to die for. Every night they take your order for breakfast, and then when you get up in the morning there's omelets, pancakes (which are served more like blintzes), fruit, and it's all awesome. The service was great. We were nervous about dealing with taxi drivers (and escalated pricing), but they negotiated the prices for us before we got in the taxi and we had no problems. Getting there from the train/bus was tricky, but not terrible. We did have to stop and ask for directions because the buses are a bit crazy, but it wasn't too difficult to get to the hotel. It was worth it because it was like staying in someone's home rather than a hotel, and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend Oselya. BTW there was no fitness center (that I know of) so I'm not sure why it asked me to rate it.

This place is amazing!

Beautiful place, out of city location, staff that never cease to amaze etc. My partner and myself stayed here whilst visiting Kiev and the staff at this beautiful hotel made our stay super easy - booking taxis, places to eat etc and looking out for us to make sure that we paid local rates instead of Western rates...

When we go back to Kiev, we will stay here again - perfect!

Small family run hotel in the suburbs in a very quiet neighbourhood, a few miles outside the centre of Kiev. The hotel staff are very friendly, rooms are very well maintained, cleans and very comfortable. You have a choice of several breakfast choices which usually consist of omelettes, meats, cake, bread and choice of coffee or tea.
The centre of Kiev is a bus ride and a metro train away, which isn’t as daunting as it sounds. We chose to walk to the metro about 15 to 20 minutes’ walk then a 15 minute metro ride to the city for a cost of about 20 cents one way.
Getting to the hotel you would be wise to book the transportation service offered by the hotel which is about $50 for a return journey.
I cannot say anything negative about the Oselya, its great value for money; if location is a factor in your holiday plans then this is not for you

I stayed at this pension for 3 nights with my husband. Our room was cozy and clean and with romantic atmosphere. The room has private terrace and we enjoyed staying there having beer. Staffs are all friendly and they took care of us well. Most favorite point is breakfast which is served in the pretty garden. That was really fantastic and enjoyable. The pension is located in the suburb with a lot of green. I love the location but some people may feel a little far from city center.. we took a bus for 10 min and transfer to metro for 10min. to city center. But it didn't bother me at all.

Room Tip: Only one room has private terrace. You should choose this room!

Thank you very much for nice words. I definitely agree we have great location ) Room with terrace is the best option for warm period but we created garden to compensate lack of terraces in other rooms. We all miss summer as now garden is good for stroll only. Too cold outside (

We stayed here as the first stop on a four city holiday taking in kiev,Moscow,st petersburg and stockholm.Things got off to a bad start when we tried to take the bus into kiev as there were two bus stops and guess what we picked the wrong one and ended up touring the suburbs of kiev on our first night.After a good breakfast the next morning the owner kindly dropped us off at the local metro station where we made our way into the centre.After that we walked to and from the metro station.Its about a 20 min walk but the route is straightforward and we dont mind walking.The room was lovely and the area has a slightly rural feel complete with chickens running around outside.Would have preferred tea and coffee making facilities to the coffee machine and the shower was a little complicated but that is just my opinion.
Ignore the bad stories you may have read or seen on the british media prior to euro 2012.Kiev is a safe and interesting city.Tourism is still in its early stages but when it gets going kiev will be a great city break destination and I hear Lviv is well worth a visit so that may be another good reason to go back to Ukraine in the future.
With its great customer service Oselya is a good place to stay if you are going to kiev.

This is a very small hotel, but the staff went way out of their way to make our 17 hour layover in Kiev so enjoyable. The room was quiet and nice. The owner came to get us at the airport and took us back in the morning for a reasonable rate. The night clerk, Juliet, was so sweet arranging for a taxi for us to see the Kiev sights by night, having us dropped off at a restaurant only a 5 minute walk from the hotel, and took our order for breakfast in the morning. I highly recommend this hotel.
