I was at the Premier Palace Hotel for a week in late July/ Aug 2012. The hotel is centrally located just off the main street, Kreschatik. The hotel combines the classic elements of refined charm with a modern sensibility.... I recommend the executive plan which includes a full breakfast, mid-afternoon tea and light fare, and dinner in a private dining area on the 7th floor. Dining is buffet style but with service, which was attentive and excellent; and the food choices varied and tasty. There is also a private lounge off the dining area, a nice refuge when needed or a quiet place to read complimentary newspapers.... The room I had had a view of Independence Square, St. Sophia's, and St. Michael's, amazing. And the mattress was the most comfortable ever. The complimentary toiletries were Bulgari, very classy. Every day I found private-label chocolate treats on my pillow, and a weather report, a warm touch. There are around 40 rooms out of the 200 plus rooms that are executive level, and I highly recommend them. The first impression is that the executive plan is a bit pricey but the money you save on fine dining, and the added VIP treatment, makes it a reasonable choice, trust me...... The hotel has a great pool with jacuzzi, sauna and steam, and sports bar; and a small, but complete, fitness center with a helpful trainer on duty....The service in the hotel was excellent, up to the best Western standard. From the front office to the concierge, I found everyone helpful and cooperative. The hotel gives you full privacy and non-hotel guests have no problem visiting your room. The concierge helped me book a day trip to a lake/beach outside of Kiev, and took care of everything; and at a reasonable price.... The negatives were picayune: smoking was allowed in a small area of the private dining lounge, not bad. My hotel room was smoke-free and I didn't encounter the problem anywhere else in the hotel. Sorry for carping but I have to disclose everything for completeness....Overall evaluation is that this hotel is an excellent choice if you want comfort, luxury, service at a reasonable price, especially if you consider the alternative: Stay in a luxury short-stay apartment but have to pay out-of-pocket for a fitness center, pricey restaurant meals, etc.-- and even more expense for a couple. The Premier Palace is the way to go when a careful cost/benefit calculation is done.
