Finding accommodation in Kiev can be kind of a nightmare. You're often stuck between $400/night international 5-stars and dingy Soviet-era business hotels that haven't been renovated since. There are lots of serviced apartments, but after several shady bait and switch dealings from sketchy owners, we decided to go with a hotel for our long weekend in Kiev. $400/night was out of my budget and I just couldn't stand to cough up $120+ a night for a 70s-style business hotel that didn't even provide breakfast. The Autograph is by no means a bargain, and I've recently stayed in similar 4-star hotels in Madrid and Bratislava for 1/2 the price, but compared with the other options at this price point (and the handful of alternatives below it), you get a lot more bang for your buck.
The Autograph is brand new, and it shows. Everything is in wonderful condition and it's sparkling clean. The staff all speak excellent English and they've clearly received thorough training. Our room was totally silent and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The wifi worked without a hitch, with a strong signal everywhere. The breakfast buffet was delicious with a lot of variety. The only slight negative might be its location. It's not right in the center, but it's only 3 metro stops to the heart of downtown, and the metro station is a quick 5-minute walk from the hotel. I would definitely stay here again!
