“Look for somewhere else”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

I stayed here for Euro2012 first week because it was the only place that would confirm a booking at a fixed price before the event. I had read the reviews on here so I wasn't expecting much but the reality was a shock to someone who is used to Western levels for the same price. The staff are fantastic and most of them speak English and they will do anything to help. The cafe is useful and the food is freshly prepared. This is essential because there is nowhere else to eat for miles around.

My room was small but I had to share a bathroom. There was a kettle but no tea or coffee or even a cup. There is no airconditioning although the windows do open. The bathroom was clean and everything worked but there was no plug in the sink.

The biggest problem is the area where the hotel is - it is awful. There are stray dogs howling, people shouting at each other all night and the only way to get from there to Nivky Metro is by taxi so you will spend a lot of time and money on taxi fares and the standard of vehicles and driving is very poor. You would not want to be in this area after dark I think.

I think the staff here are trying very hard to make this into a nice hotel but they will always struggle against the area.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back where they might be less noise.

I spent 4 nights there in February, 2012. The Hotel is terribly noisy - you will not sleep (even if you're a seasoned traveller). My room had a shared bathroom (it was sold to me as a private). It is not close to a 3 star. It was not clean. It is very far from city center - a combination bus-metro ride that takes close to an hour each way. You can do much better.

Room Tip: Don't Stay Here

Hotel has been built inside an old Soviet housing block very far from center of Kiev. The rooms are nice, the bathrooms very nice. But if you are coming to see Kiev---this is not the place to stay.
