“A time warp”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Located not too far from the city centre this hotel is really a little stuck in a time warp. The rooms are fine; clean and well serviced, the staff are efficient and friendly, breakfast is fine but eat out for other meals.

The problem is the public areas like the bar, the restaurant and reception. They are tired, dark and dull. Th eplace needs a face lift. BUT the room prices are good for Kiev so a balance is required!

Many reviews here mention prostitutes in the bar. These ladies work in the Star Club next door to the bar in the hotel. This is a lap/pole dance establishment. Most of the girls are pretty and those in the bar, whilst ready to be picked up, are just having a break. Ignore them and they are not a problem, and they certainly aren't a threat.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room - quieter

OK, location is good; adjacent to Victory Square ..... certainly not the best; almost all of the hotels in the centre have a significantly superior location.
BUT, the service, the rooms, the breakfast, the bath towels ...... just awful; you've got to be kidding!!!!!
There's far too many better options than this in Kiev.
This hotel does not even qualify for a 2 star rating!

The location is good, not great. The standerd rooms are clean, the towels are quite old but clean too. At the reception some people are very friendly, some should rethink their job. If you like prostitutes, the smokey, seventies-style hotelbar is a great place to meet them. As a man you can just take a seat and you won't feel alone.

Room Tip: a room at the beack is more quiet than at the front

Lybid is a basic three star hotel. Its location is good enough, especially for those who are travelling by train, because the hotel is close to the railway station. And it takes 7 min by taxi to get to the city centre. The room was ordinary, nothing special. The breakfast was normal and nothing special again. The day I checked in I ordered a taxi at the reception. It turned out to be three times more expensive then the local one. This hotel is ok for 1 night and no longer.

The hotel is a basic 3*, breakfast not bad, location not bad blah blah blah.

The real issue here is that hotel best caters for lone male business travellers if you catch my drift! There is a 'Sports Bar' attached to the hotel, with escorts hanging out in the Lobby Bar and frequent women coming in to the hotel to 'accompany' the hotel guests - all sided by the burly security men disguised as porters.

If this is what you want, then you will love this hotel, but if you are a female or family then I advise you stay away!!

Bad rooms, bad service, horrible bar, horrible staff, check out problems, overcharge your card, cheesy strip club in the hotel, not clean at all, noisy... very close from a scam. Everything you can imagine when talking about a nightmare experience you'll find it there! Only one advantage : location is very convenient.

Room Tip: Best tip is to choose another hotel, they are 100s in town!
