I stayed only one night at the Premier Palace but I will happily stay there again whenever I'm in Kiev.
The hotel is beautiful, modern, yet classic inside and the rooms were large and well-appointed. The lobby and atrium are beautiful and, being Christmas/New Year, these were dominated by a fantastic tree with exquisite decorations. There are four main elevators, two of which are external, glass types that make the simple experience of returning to your room a little special.
The hotel was incredibly clean throughout and I liked the floor mats (in elevators etc) that had the day of the week emblazoned on them and, yes, they did change on our second day.
We had little time to enjoy the hotel but we did make it to the large swimming pool, sauna complex late at night, just before closing. Breakfast was fantastic, buffet style, with made-to-order omelets and a huge variety of local and regular food. This was served in the 8th floor restaurant with a great view over the city.
I wouldn't rate this or any hotel "excellent" without a great experience with the staff. I must say that everyone I encountered in this hotel went above and beyond to make my stay perfect. I was pleasantly surprised by how many employees spoke English, something I don't necessarily expect in Ukraine, even in Kiev.
This hotel is by no means cheap but I managed to get a great deal on my rooms with a few minutes of searching on the usual websites.
