Reviewed March 5, 2014

I stayed at Hotel Oselya last weekend, from February 28 to March 02 and the service they provided was outstanding. I had to deal with Oksana (the owner), her father-in-law as driver for transfers and with two receptionists – and all of them have been very nice, helpful and did everything, that my stay was perfect. Before my arrival, eMails have been answered very quick and with detailed information.
My room was spacious and had all amenities. A large, comfy bed, TV with a lot of channels (including international ones), a mini-bar. Usually I avoid mini-bars, because of the usually ridicolous high prices. But the mini-bar at Hotel Oselya is reasonable, for example a beer for 12-15 UAH. The bathroom comes with hair-dryer and – what I really like – a heated floor.
The breakfast was pleanty and tasty and on my day of departure I had to leave early and they prepered breakfast for me at 04.30a.m.! And even if it’s not a restaurant, they offer meals for dinner and I had Bortsch and Pelmeni and it was very yummy. There is a large garden (due to the weather I didn’t used it – but on a sunny summer afternoon it must be a very nice place to relax). The hotel is not in the city center, but that is no problem at all. They provide free shuttle service to and from the Metro, so that it is very easy to reach the center.
It is a great place to stay with lovely people in a very beautiful city!

This hotel has incredible atmosphere of real home. My room was big and light, decorated with taste. It even had owners musical instrument which he had in childhood fixed on the wall. Hotel has 7 rooms but all rooms are different and I want to try “Sky on clouds” room next time. I asked for breakfast in my room and had it hot and tasty. Staff at reception is very kind and truly hospitable. They speak good English and helped me to schedule my plans in Kiev. One thing which I have to mention and which I didn’t experience because of the weather is garden. Very beautiful and big I’m sure it is very relaxing to have tea or to read there. I visited hotel in December when city had demonstrations and choose hotel because of the location. Hotel is not located in downtown but close enough to get there in 10 min by taxi. I felt myself totally safe because of the location and surrounding. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for value for money stay in Kiev.

Stayed in Myth of the Sun room for 2 weeks. We were treated like family. Girls at front desk helped plan excursions and even helped find lost family/towns. Owners and staff are wonderful. Included Breakfasts were hearty and kept us going all day. Can get food off hours too. Is located out of downtown but they offer rides to metro subway stations. Can also walk back -15/20 mins downhill- just know location is in suburb so you get a more real experience than downtown. First time in Ukraine but felt at home due to welcoming and unbelievably helpful owners/staff. The Oselya made our trip!!!! Will stay again.

I absolutely recommend Oselya hotel. It is a wonderful hotel completely unique with great staff, food and service. Pricing is very competitive. The breakfast included in the price was very good. The hotel is not that close to any subway stops, but its a safe area to walk and taxis are easy to get. A plus of it's being a little off the beaten path is it's very quiet and peaceful. I really enjoyed my stay here and will try to come again!

Nice B&B with good location if u are looking for peacefull stay. Downtown is 10 min by car. Nearby are lakes, big park, monastery and village museum. Hotel gives bycicals for rent but Kiev is danger city for ride. Maximum you can take it for park. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel. Nice option if you want to explore the city.

Room Tip: We stayed at Sky on clouds room. It was big and light room.

I would describe this as a boutique hotel and I believe there are seven rooms available, and it is situated in calm and green part of Kiev. We had beautiful view from the room to the garden.

We stayed a few nights before and after doing trip to Chornobyl. Oksana the owner kindly arranged trip for us. Staying in the hotel was so relaxing! Oksana and Lena were very kind and interesting to get to know, and took me under their wing after I got ill. They also arranged trip to Poltava. Home-cooked meals during our stay were delicious.

I recommend this to anyone wanting to relax and stay away from the noise of Kiev but at the same time to be in the city.
