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.
