“Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

It was my very first time in Kiev and I did not know what to expect. The location and the staff of the hotel made it unforgettable and I did not want to leave however I had to get back to work to make more money so I can return to this beautiful hotel to stay once again. The doorman knew my name only after 1 day which is a very rare quality in hotels nowadays! Concierge was extremely helpful with where to go and what to do, front desk was fast and efficient. From my pick up till the drop off to the airport there is no single moment where I felt unwelcomed. Two thumps up to everybody in Fairmont Kiev and keep up the great work! This is a must stay property if you are travelling to this city!

Room Tip: Deluxe Room with Dnipro river view

The Hotel is excellent. Starting from the main enter till an any detail of your room. The staff really know their work, everyone try to help you, to tell all you interested in.
The view from our room was breathtaking--old Podol district looks like in the fairytale. Room we had was huge and bed was absolutly KING.
The food in restaurant was unforgettable delicious... but more over all desserts were the masterpiece.
So,-- high profile staff, beautiful luxurious room and design of all hotel, fantastic food-- it is all what Ican tell about our weekend in this Hotel. If you look for place to stay in Kyiv I can recomend you to try Fairmont-- you will never regret.

Have just ended a fantastic 5 night stay at the gorgeous new Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv. The staff are all very personable and helpful. From the concierge team who arranged my car transfers and a private tour to Chernobyl, to James and his team, especially Oleksandr, on Fairmont Gold who made sure I enjoyed my evening canapes and morning breakfast.

Fairmont Gold was perfect with a lovely view of the Dnieper river while you enjoy your coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening canapes and took advantage of the DVD library.

Room was large with an amazing bathroom and very comfortable bed. I had an atrium view which was nice and quiet.

Highly recommend the Sunday brunch in the Strand Grill and cocktails in the Vintage Cocktail Bar. Sad to leave, but will definitely return!

Room Tip: Atrium view rooms are very quiet! The Gold floor is great value

I am a weekly business traveler that has stayed at the best hotels in the world. The service I receive on my stays to the Fairmont in Kiev is top notch. From a personal greeting when I arrive to a fruit plate, Chocolate platter and personal hand written greeting card everything is just right.

The rooms, beds and bathrooms are awesome and it is a pleasure to stay at this hotel. I would never stay anywhere else in Kiev

Why better than Intercontinental? Many reasons: Guest relations is top priority with attentive and professional personnel - but not overbearing - we like handling our own bags. Room upgrades arranged often when available. Our favorites: 1032 and 1044 (with balcony overlooking city and finicular). Tasteful elegance in every room and many conveniences such as: electrical outlets plentiful for re-charging phones/computers - many wash cloths - high powered hair dryers (we purchased one) - toilet seats that close softly. Also amazing: beautiful marble in bathroom - welcome fruit plate and the occasional flower arrangement. The beds and pillows cannot be matched for plushness and comfort. We purchased a pillow also. Overall - so much better than Intercontinental. . . and the views over the river or city are incredible!
Konstantine and Oksana at reception are the best! He arranged membership in the FAIRMONT PRESIDENTS CLUB - which has wonderful benefits. We visit Kyiv often and will return to the Fairmont because it truly doesn't get any better than this!

Room Tip: City view rooms are more quiet because road construction on river side will continue for a few month...

Hotel location is right by the funicular which climbs from the riverside to the area around St. Sophia Cathedral. Rooms are really luxurious with wi-fi included. Breakfast is good but not outstanding in terms of the breadth of offer I thought - not enough juices or hot food options. The bars are OK, though the hotel could benefit from a better newspaper selection for the guests to read in the lobby for instance - basically black and white copies of the Wall Street Journal and The Times. Hard to fault the staff whose English-speaking skills are fine in a country where a Westerner will struggle languagewise.
The gym could use some free weights (none to be found!) and I was a little surprised that the spa doesn’t include a thermal circuit but only massages.
Kiev in itself looks a jewel yet to be uncovered and I didn't feel that the hotel catered enough in this respect. Even the map the hotel offers is rather poor. Architecturally and monumentally the city does feature a few highlights (the Opera, Parliament, interesting architecture throughout) but it doesn’t sell itself properly. One gets the feeling that the Ukraine is still learning to deal with its own contradictions. For instance St Andrew's Church is beautiful and just 10 mins’ walk from the hotel, in a picturesque neighbourhood which includes a theatre, antique stores and a few nice looking restaurants, but you hardly notice it. By the way, in order to reach this little gem you can either take the funicular (just behind the hotel) and walk for a few mins northbound, passing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or you can go along the street just behind the hotel, northbound, until you reach the large square (you'll recognize), to then turn left to go up towards St Andrew's church.
In all, this is a luxury hotel that will not disappoint in terms of facilities and standing, but it lacks certain attention to detail as referenced above.
