This hotel is nothing short of amazing!
I stayed in this hotel from Oct. 22 - Nov. 5, 2013.
Kiev is a pretty compact city compared to other European metropolitans, so getting to and from the hotel to anywhere is a matter of minutes. There is a metro station right near by the hotel, maybe a 5-10 minute walk at most.
The breakfast offered a large variety that would suit anyone, from eggs in all kinds of variations to salads, cereal, yogurts, breads, cheeses, fruit, and anything you would want to find really.
The rooms are very spacious compared to any hotel I have visited. Our room had two bathrooms and a nice cozy balcony.
What really stood out, though, more than anything was the service. The girls working in the reception were super nice and friendly. They did not hesitate to take all the time needed to explain anything and everything, including the best places to see, visit, how to get there and just chat every once in a while.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this city, for any purpose at all... It is fabulous!

Sincerely,
One of the guys from Room 41 :)

It was my first trip to Kiev, and still I have not regretted that acquaintance with the city and country, I chose to stay here!
Excellent service. The attentive staff. And most importantly - luxury accommodation with an excellent bathroom and bedroom.
There is no claim to the cleaning and cleanliness in general )))
Wonderful location in historic center of the city.
All services and amenities on hotel website - fully confirm! )))

Room Tip: Upper floors - is preferable.

We stayed for two nights at this new (less tha a year old) hotel on Podil, a nice and green area of Kiev. Very clean good size rooms with AC, comforbale beds, friendly service, good restaurant open any time, decent breakfast inlcuded in 120 dollars /night makes it attractive for business travelers. It is 5-7 min walk from metro stations. Good restaurants nearby ( we enjoyed Shekavitsya restaurant 5 min walk from the hotel with good Ukrainian food).
Travel from the airport 30-40 minutes , taxi about 250-300 hryvna-USD 30-35.
I will come back again given the opportunity.

Whilst this isn't quirky in a boutique hotel way it felt like I was in a different country, which I liked. The bedrooms were huge and they felt like something out of the shining, but they were clean and quiet. We had a meal and a bottle of wine at their restaurant as we arrived late. It was hardly gourmet but it was edible and the white wine was warm so I wouldn't choose their restaurant over anything else. The breakfast room decoration is hilarious with a spectacular mural on one wall , the breakfast was limited so I played it safe with toast and bacon. Overpriced for what it is but I like the faded grandeur of the place.
