The staff were friendly and welcoming. We had a bit of bother with a scam and the police and they were all too ready to help and support - with a smile, in a City that hasn't yet learnt to smile post communism. Could not recommend more highly.

The out door gym made of girders and old car parts was extreme - great fun. The other smiling recommendation is the fantastic Ukrainian restaurant at the top of the hill near the hotel next door to the over priced pretentious champagne and oyster bar.

The staff seemed short tempered and irritated when I asked for a bottle of wine at 10PM the evening that we arrived. The following morning, we attempted to eat breakfast on the terrace, which is quite nice, if you don't mind the pigeons who are familiar enough to eat off your dinner plate. As we were getting up to leave, my wife (who is a professional photographer) got up and snapped some photos of the terrace and the front of the building, which are photos that we were going to send to the hotel staff, and use on Facebook to update our families about our travels. Unfortunately, a member of the bellhop staff came outside, and very loudly and rudely said "No photos!". We tried to tell him that we are guests in the hotel, but he cut us off and ushered us away. Seems kind of counter-intuative to prevent guests from photo-documenting their adventures, and sharing it with the world of social media (which would ultimately boost sales)...oh well! Instead of taking photos while we spend our down time in the hotel, we will be writing nasty reviews like this!

PS: We also read on one website that there are jacuzzi tubs in all the rooms.

There is no jacuzzi in our room :(

Dear Guest, we appreciate so much that you share about your experience during your stay. It a shame for us to hear about a rude dealing of a new staff and we'll do our best to avoid it in a future.

For the price you pay - very disappointing. Rooms are extremely small and not comfortable. No greetings by reception staff - did not offer assistance with luggage. No FB amenities in guests rooms - no proper towels in bathroom - minibar not refilled. FB service is a disaster - unfriendly staff and they just don't care - I was seating on the terrace and not even once they asked for assistance. Breakfast buffet very poor and food not fresh. Upon check out reception staff did not even enquire how was the stay. A lot of work if you charge those pri

Loved the time at the Vozdvyzhensky, very kind staff, especially the stunningly beautiful receptionist. The hotel's location is great, central but quiet, great for jogging in the morning. It's a classic boutique hotel, rooms have different designs, they aren't the most spacious but I didn't feel any lack of comfort. The terrace inside the hotel is a real bonus. I have been staying there 3 times already, and was never disappointed. I'd surely chose the place again.

One of the most elegant restaurants in Kiev. You can enjoy dinner in the cozy little terraces under the trees outside. Here you will enchant the silence of the historical center of the city, great food and cocktail Margarita.

Excellent location. It is right in the middle of "Andrew Descent" 5 mins walk up or down and you are the middle of two different areas of town! The hotel is homely, trendy and stylish. The breakfast room is charming and the food presentation is appetizing.

We stayed in room 509. I think it must be the best room in the hotel. It is spacious and adorned with a smokey mirror and antique furnitures and a glass cabinet with old China wear. it has this mixed vintage stylish feeling that takes you a different era. The room has 5 windows, looking down to the town in a very surreal feeling. It is simply Picturesque

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Specially Karina at reception. I had an incident where i forgot my ATM card in the ATM machine next to the hotel. I figured out at 12:00 midnight and she rushed to help calling the bank as if it was her own. She called and made sure i am not worried and assured that everything will be ok next day. Next Day i went to the bank to try to get it back and all the staff asked me "are you from the hotel next door?, yes we know about your Card. Karina called us" i am not sure what she did .. but she made everyone aware ... and i got my card back. Thank you Karina.

Lovely Hotel i would recommend it to all my friends!
