“Quirky, fun and well-located”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We chose the hotel on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews.... we didn't want a monolithic business hotel, and the Vozdvyzhensky offered something different in a fascinating part of the town. We enjoyed our stay a lot. The room was small and it wasn't perfect (the shower didn't really deliver much in the way of hot water), but the hotel is well decorated, the breakfast was fine, and we enjoyed being so close to both the Andriyivsky uzviz (do visit Bulgakov's house) and Podil, and to the main sights in the centre of the city - all of which are walking distance (easy to get onto the metro for the Lavra and Babi Yar and other places of interest).

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during our recent trip to Kiev. I am actually Ukrainian and speak the language fluently, but even so our experience at this hotel was not positive. Apart from the fact that they greatly overcharge you for a hotel transfer (but this is the same all over Ukraine and Russia if you book via your hotel), upon arrival they were not friendly towards us. The credit card facility was broken and they demanded that we pay for the hotel upfront (this was the first time I was ever asked to do so) and in cash, which we didn't have. We were then sent to an ATM, where we were unable to withdraw the full amount due to daily limits, however they still demanded at least one night to be paid for before actually allowing us to see our room.

The room itself was extremely small, but this wasn't the main problem. The room was right next to the conference facilities and kitchen and extremely loud. When we asked if there was any chance we could be moved, we were told in an extremely unfriendly tone that this was impossible. Basically this is how our experience continued for the rest of our stay - we were very glad the stay was only two nights long.

The only positives about this hotel are the free wifi (which actually works) and the reasonably good location. Although in the old town and a bit far from the Kiev city centre, resturants and nightlife, the location is very good for tourists. And there are still a few nice restaurants (although very touristy) around. Breakfast in the hotel wasn't too bad, but nothing special.

I would not recommend this hotel, although am unable to compare to any others in Kiev as this was our first visit. I do know that Kiev is expensive and the service isn't great, however I would recommend you try to find a better hotel!

The hotel is in a quiet area, close to downtown. It is easy to get to St. Andrew's Church, St. Michael's church, St. Sophia Cathedral. Advantages - proximity to downtown, good interior room and a restaurant, polite staff, the atmosphere of old Kiev early 20 th century. Disadvantages - poor breakfast, hotel site does not contain detailed location map, small rooms.

A very pleasant, boutique hotel in the best possible location in town. Afternoon tea or dinner in the garden at the back of the hotel is just perfect after the hustle and bustle in town.

Room Tip: 5th floor not facing inside courtyard

There is no question about one thing. The location of this hotel is fantastic and will give you a completely different experience of the city from just about anywhere else. This is perfect, if like me your stay will be short. Just down the historic St. Andrews hill, between the Rastrelli designed church (under repair at Nov '10) and the excellent Bulgakov museum. Ladies should put away their high heels if they stay here, given the cobbled street that runs downhill, but this is one of its many charms. Other things are more problematic: small rooms, short beds and a most intriguing breakfast selection that includes roast vegetables and savoury rice, depending, I guess, on the mood of the chef. The staff are quite sweet, but the organising principles are a bit slack: heavy looking security, but no one to help if you are struggling with bags, nice little evening tea at 6, but set up in a way that looks awkward to get involved with. Had to take the battery out of the wall clock in my room as it was too noisy, and dealing with the reverse-installed taps in the shower reflects a lack of attention to detail. For a small hotel, this means everything, however if you visit, don't forget to make it to the terraced garden.

Close to St Andrew's church, this hotel suprised me in many ways. Although sceptical upfront, booked from Prague and needing pre-payment to book, staff is very friendly, breakfast great, and the longer I am here - the more I like it.

I am impressed by the restaurant, although looking a bit 'faux', the food quality is good. The salmon in mustard marinade is stunning, as is the herring.

Wifi is wobbely, ask for a network cable - after this you are well connected.

I really like this place!
