“City centre hotel”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The country in general is still suffering from the association with Russia, and its not unusual to see dilapidated cars, and horse drawn carts forming part of the rush hour traffic.
The hotel however is an oasis in the midst of all this, very westernized with polite and helpful staff on hand.
Tips for eating, don't try the local food unless you have a cast iron constitution. Stick with food you recognize and know its origin, there is a limited choice but the hotel is a good source of information.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel has quieter rooms

The hotel is overpriced as other people have said. But it's still a nice place - in a good location and the staff are friendly. They also arrange airport transfers at a competitive price. I'd stay again despite the price.

I stayed here for 1 night during Euro 2012. The hotel is fine but in my opinion overpriced for what it is. It may well be that the price was increased for Euro 2012. The hotel had everything you needed and was only a 10-15 minute stroll to the city and 20 minutes from the national football stadium. The breakfast was limited for choice compared to other 4 star hotels I have stayed at. The staff were very well dressed but it seemed too much for what was on offer. This hotel is ok but overpriced.

If you pay 180 euro per night, you shold not be charged an extra 1,50 euro for internet access in the room. The room was absolutely excellent, and the wiev over the city was fantastic. We stayed in 19th floor and the lift was not working, and stopped on 18, so we had to walk the last one up to 19. It was the same when we were going downstairs. We had to walk the stairs down to 18. Breakfast was not included, but we could buy it for 20 euro. To us the price was a provocation, so we left the hotel eating breakfast at the nearest kiosk. But the car was taken care of by guards at night, and that was positive.

I can understand why a lot of ppl would give this hotel a bad review, but....

It;s not so bad.

The location is awesome. The price was even better. We got a room with two small beds. Yes, rooms are old, outdated, non working tv, but we had bath/shower w toilet, enough towels for two people and a balcony with a view over the park. What else do you need? I always say that I don't spend much time in a room, I sleep, take a shower, and then I'm off to explore the city. The most important thing for me that it's clean and safe, which it was The girls at the front desk were pleasant. And about the tv: after wiggling a few wires and moving it across the room it was working...

Unless you willing to shell out big bucks, dont hold your breath to see a western style room anywhere in europe..

This hotel had been booked for us, a married couple, by local friends. The wedding we were attending was nearby and the reception was to be held in this hotel.
Confusion when we checked in - we were told two rooms had been booked! We took one - and discovered it appeared to be a single, albeit with a big bed; however, one side of this was against the wall, and the bed could not be moved. They seemed to think my husband was the only guest staying, and only took his details, despite the fact we were accompanied by our Ukrainian friends, who did all the talking for us, in Russian AND Ukranian! Only one set of towels provided, and only one breakfast charged for. We had to sign each day to say there really were two of us for breakfast. For the two days after the wedding, the breakfast food appeared to be exactly the same as what was left over from the wedding. . . and we still had to pay £15 each for every breakfast! Little English spoken; no money exchange facilities (try the hotel next door for this) and very expensive hotel shops (antique icons; diamonds etc)
All in all, seemed very expensive for a mediocre experience.

The old hotel from Soviet era. Very small rooms with old furniture. As been booked the standart room i need to change it to deluxe one due to the condition of first. For the price i paid you could get much better service in Kiev.
Restoran is something you shouldn't try, there are dozens of a good places around.
