This is a good value hotel if you get discounts. Since it is part of the Accor brand, you can expect a clean comfortable room with few frills. I had a park view room on the 3rd floor. It was clean and spacious. The hotel is a large floating building and the hallways and bathrooms reminded me of being on a ship. The bathroom is small but adequate unless you need 2 hours to get ready to go somewhere.
The best thing about this hotel besides the price is the fact that it is a 5-10 minute walk to the Hydropark Metro Station, which is on the blue line and can deliver you to downtown Kiev in 10-15 minutes. The hotel has a shuttle but it runs on the hour. In nice weather it is a good walk. Previous reviewers have commented on the Hydropark area. I would call it "seedy", but not dangerous. There are lots of people enjoying their time and yes, drinking, but nobody bothered me and there were no Panhandlers as you would find in most US cities. I walked at all times of the day and night and felt completely safe.
I did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food. Again, since you can be in the heart of Kiev within 30 minutes, why eat at the hotel.
I would stay here again and recommend this as a good place to stay
