I flew to Kiev and drove to the Oselya Hotel in mid-October. When I arrived, I was greeted by a very friendly woman named Juliya who worked at the front desk. I had just arrived in Kiev from being in a combat zone, and was looking for a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy my 2 weeks of vacation. The Oselya was the perfect place for that. The ladies at the front desk let me get a coffee and use my laptop in the hotel lobby, which was very warm and friendly. Whenever I wanted to go somewhere, Juliya or one of the other staff members would call a cab for me and determine the price I would pay before I went down to Kreshatyk Street or to a restaurant. That saved me a lot of money, I’m sure. About one week into my trip, I decided to go to Odessa for a few days. Oksana and her staff allowed me to keep my backpack at the hotel while I took the train (12 hours) to Odessa. Juliya even went down to the train station with me the day before and explained exactly what I needed to do and where I needed to go to catch my train the next day. While I was in Odessa, I couldn’t wait to get back to Kiev and go back to the Oselya. The staff there totally made me feel at home, and that’s what I needed in order to get some much needed rest. Oksana, Juliya and all the other staff members were very friendly and made my first trip to Ukraine very memorable. I plan on returning to the Oselya and will highly recommend it to anyone going to Kiev.
