“Would come again just for the breakfast”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Stayed at Fairmont for 4 nights on a business trip. Had it not been for issues with the gym (in a room with no windows, no bike, limited equipment), this would have a five stars review. Guest room very spacious, clean, good bed, working space. Small fruit assortment in room when I arrived, very good coffee machine in room, mineral water, etc. Free wifi. Lobby area ok for small meetings. Main attraction is the breakfast. Among the very best I've had during my 15 years as a business traveler. All produce fresh and high quality, freshly baked bread and patisserie, etc. for future visits in Kiev, I would consider coming back just for that. Staff extraordinarily friendly and competent.

This hotel is a five star hotel in all senses. Delicious bath, spacious room with fancy linens and coffee and tea available. All were extremely receptive: the concierge, the front desk staff, waiters. Speak impeccable English. The restaurant is fantastic. The food is very well prepared and tasty options has typical dishes. It's that perfect hotel for those who want to rest after a long day of work. Or after hours of walking through the beautiful sights. It is steps from the subway.

My first experience of a Fairmont hotel and it really impressed. Had a huge oversized room, with overly comfortable bed (it was difficult to get up the following morning!) and massive bathroom with great amenities. Its location is pretty good right at the base of the funicular railway so if you’re wanting to get to Independence Sq etc, then you’re pretty much set.

The food in the restaurant was stunning, had a Tomato Bisque and steak for dinner and hands down it was one of the best meals I’ve had anywhere. The fare on offer for breakfast was good to, full range of options and plenty of the usual cooked to order stuff too.

Was cold enough whilst we were there that from the restaurant you could see huge chunks of ice floating down the Dnieper River which is just infront of the hotel which just added to the stay.

As this was my first stay at a Fairmont property it’s set a pretty high standard for any future stays at a Fairmont hotel!

I was overall satisfied with my stay over a week-end. I booked through a booking agency and I think I had good value for money. You feel there were long traditions of exclusive, discrete service-quality embedded in the whole athmosphere, and "in the walls" of the hotel, a kind of grand nobility around. The staff were quick in response and always with a friendly smile, without at any time being intrusive. The following-up of my questions was immediate amd they met my expectations to the full. However, there were some deviations from this excellency described. They were not able to fulfill my request for a flower vase, and incidentally I solved this problem myself. The room was in excellent order upon arrival, and prepared for two adults and a child of 10 years of age, however the bathroom was not equipped for the three of us, so we had to make requests. At the time of booking we were tempted by the discription of a fitness-center, spa and swimming-pool. Likevise, on the presentation the hotel it looked like it was situated at the immidiate water-side of the river Dnepr. Upon arrival we discovered that the swimming-pool area, and partly spa area were closed down and under reconstruction. That was a disappointment and should have been informed about on the web-page. Then there are a heavy traficked big road just in front of the hotel and there was also a rising road-bridge crossing that multiplied the trafick in the area between the holte and the waterside. However, we were located at the 10 floor so trafick did not bother us much, and besides the view from the room was excellent.

Room Tip: Higher rooms with a view of the river - excellent

We stayed in the Fairmont for a conference and I have to say that the hotel and its staff lived up to its billing. It is, however, very rightly not the best hotel in Kiev. I have stayed there as well and it is a little bit better.

The staff a very good and very helpful. I had a little of a wobble at check-in but I understood that the girl was only doing her job. It just took a long time.

The rooms a very good size, although you might get lost in them, and the facilities are great. I loved the Illy Espresso machine in particular. That is a very nice way to wake up indeed.

All the details are looked after, from the toiletries to the spread at breakfast and, therefore, this a great hotel for any kind of trip.

I stayed here on a short business trip to Kiev. Overall it was very impressive. The hotel staff speak very good English and the overall quality of the rooms, restaurant and bar were very good. Only downside is the location is a little bit away from the city centre but an ideal distance and short commute from the airport.
I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room upgrade and a room at the rear of the building
