“Better than the Holiday Inn”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A good spacious hotel with a bar/cafe area, large restaurant with excellent buffet breakfast, and business center with two laptops on first floor. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and fairly large, with TV set up working upon arrival and good cable channels--CNN doesn't seem to be an option in Ukraine. The staff at reception speak English and even the bellboys who were very prompt to move luggage when needed. Location is great because it's a block to the subway system and a main street in town. The elevators are slow when there are many guests but the stairs are only for emergencies.

Only two drawbacks I could cite, but they seem to be common in Ukraine. First, payment was required in advance--this seems to be typical--so don't put your room on one credit card expecting to change it when you pay. The; bill was clear and there were no surprises. Second, it was a surprise to see so many prostitutes openly leaving the hotel in taxis at 3 am (when I left for the airport), but this too occurred in other hotels of Ukraine--guess they don't expect folks to be paying attention at that hour.

Stayed at the Alfavito Hotel in August for 7 nights and found it a very pleasant experience. Great staff who were very helpful and the food was excellent! I ate in every night and always found a a great meal to be had either in the main restaurant or the pub/cafe. Rooms are big and comfy with good bathroom facilities. Well located near the underground (only 3 mins walk away) but it is possible to walk into town if you are that way inclined. Highly recommended!

We stayed 4 nights on business in the hotel. When we arrived, immediately two bell boys showed up to help us, although we didn't have baggage. Both the bell boys and the front desk people spoke English and that applied on all staff in the hotel, which is a great and unexpected surprise.

Pros:
1. The rooms are large, well equiped, great bed, excellent features like slippers and bath robe. They clean everyday and they also leave a bottle of water for free.
2. The hotel is in a residential area, very quite, no traffic, no noise around, zero disturbance. The metro to the city is just 200 meters away.
3. The restaurant is excellent, the chef knows his gig well. We had great food.
4. The breakfast can be in any 5* hotel, accomodating all expectations of anybody, from anywhere.
5. Explanation of the "spooky". The hotel is brand new, opened in this year and most probably not yet advertised enough. The result is that it was almost empty. We were almost the only guests in the restaurant, a few people for breakfast, so we had a bit of ""Hotel California"" feeling.
6. The design of the hotel is great, they did a really great job on that. The only thing they need is some more marketing, because the price itself is perfectly acceptable.
7. Excellent WiFi in the entire hotel, free, fast and consistent.

Cons:
1. The only thing I didn't like is that although they had my credit card on file, in order to add restaurant costs to the room, you had to have a credit setup with the front desk. This might be a local specialty, but we are not used to it. Otherwise, everything else was perfect.

Conclusion, I strongly recomend this hotel, they did a great job and running well and most importantly very friendly their business.

Room Tip: In this hotel, doesn't really matter, all rooms are good, on any floor.

We stayed here during August 2012 and were pleasantly surprised. Our rating would be more like 4.5, if that were an option. This hotel is modern and clean, the rooms are comfortable, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. It's slightly outside the center of the city, but a very short walk to the metro line, so we could get everywhere very quickly. The metro is very convenient and easy to use. The only slight hiccup we had with the hotel is when we tried to order a birthday cake to be delivered to the room, and the staff missed the message and delivered it a day late. But they more than made up for it by giving us the cake for free and giving us a free bottle of wine and fruit as a gift. We feel that we got great value for the money, and would definitely recommend this hotel!

Location is ok, very close from downtown. Security and very modern amenities. No hidden extras and very good / friendly employees. The bar is perfect and offers a great selection of french wines. Breakfast is one of the best in town. Nice stay in the new hotel. If you come by car, they offer a free and secure parking. Very convenient.

Room Tip: Don't need to upgrade for a short stay. Double king are more than ok.

I’m just back home after staying for a week at this great hotel. The hotel is mid size and is new. It is built to the highest standard and luxury. I’m sure this hotel deserves 5 stars and perhaps it is considered 4 starts only because it doesn’t have a swimming pool.
The staff is highly professional and is simply wonderful. The only negative is the location that requires 2-3 metro stops (5-7 minutes ride) to get to the hottest spots of Kiev. The nearest metro station is 150 metes from the hotel.

Room Tip: Prefer a room at the front side.
