My husband and I stayed here for four nights in October 2011. The entrance was grand and porters greeted us to carry our luggage. The location was good although the boat had been moved earlier in the year which meant that it was extremely difficult to find an accurate map of the location! The metro station was a fair walk through the park however the hotel does offer a free minibus to take you there.
The rooms are small but comfortable but the bathroom is tiny and floods when you have a shower! The walls are pretty thin meaning we could hear our 'neighbours' after hours activities! Very good views of Kiev and the Dnepr if you are on the right side of the boat!
The bar area was comfortable and the main bar looked nice however we could not go in as the Ukraine Film Festival was being held there. The restaurant was nice and breakfast was very good - a wide variety of hot and cold dishes available.
Overall a good hotel to stay in to discover Kiev.

Dear Guest,
Thank You for taking Your time to write a comment after staying. Your feedback is very important for us, as it helps to meet our guests’ demands. Our restaurant staff was thrilled to get to know, that You liked the restaurant and our breakfasts. We are sorry that You experiences inconveniences with finding Bakkara on the map. After relocation in December 2010 our marketing department worked a lot to inform our partners about the new address. We would be grateful to You if You could give us a hint, where the wrong address was stated, so we could immediately change it.
We are waiting for Your next visit to prove that bar area not only looks nice, but offers a good service.
Kind regards,
Guest Relation Manager

First things first, the Bakkara is not your usual hotel. It's a boat - a flotel maybe - and has a strip club on its lowest level. But our stay over a long weekend was perfectly enjoyable, with the staff friendly and welcoming and our room - while a little small by some standards - very stylish and comfortable. Others have commented on the slightly odd wet room/bathroom arrangement, and true this and the occasional earthy smell of the water does take a little getting used to.

But the breakfast was very good, accommodating all European tastes East and West, and the bar/dining room has a spectacular balcony overlooking the Dniper. The hotel is situated maybe 15 mins by taxi from the city centre, but we never had any problems getting to and from the hotel and staff were more than happy to arrange cabs through a trusted (and much cheaper) company.

So if you want a staid business hotel, this is not for you, but if you want a bit of variety in your life, it's worth a try.

Room Tip: Better rooms are on the river rather than riverbank side. And make sure you book cabs to and from the hotel through the reception.

Dear Guest,
Thank You for staying at Bakkara. I am glad that You liked the hotel style. We are already waiting for Your new booking and I definitely recommend You to stay at the Classic or Junior suite room with the river view. These rooms have bigger baths, a king size bed and a balcony. I am sure that You will enjoy that staying even more.
Kind regards,
Guest Relation Manager

The hotel has very beautiful and nice rooms, friendly staff and tasty breakfasts. Great view for the Dniper river and right bank of the Kyiv. But everything inside has too high prices, TOO high. Also inside the hotel there is a strip club, that means better not to live in the hotel with kids. I'd rather recommend for a business trip.

Room Tip: River view, only this worth to live in the hotel
