There was nothing that was second rate about this hotel. The standard was excellent. Reception staff were very helpful, the steak on the dinner menu was extremely good. We only ate there once.
We took taxi from airport which was charged at the set rate of 150 UAH which is roughly £12 on today's exchange rate.
The opera house was worth a visit and very reasonable. We paid 100 UAH each and actually had a box all to ourselves, although it could seat 6
The metro was very cheap at only 2 UAH per journey and very frequent. All signage available in English.
Freezing rain on our visit made the sidewalks treacherous with ice. Extreme care needed.
