Reviewed June 18, 2013

Been there last week.
Rooms are very clean and have everything you may need.
We arrived at noon time, but room was still not ready. Was forced to walk around for two more hours to be checked in. After 2 flights it's not a good thing.
Location: unbeatable. 100 m from St.Sophia and 400 n from Maidan and Kreschatik.
Breakfast is good. It's serving in your room. You should choose a breakfast option a eve before from 6 different breakfasts
Free wi-fi in the room
Great place. Recommended.

Situated in very center of Kiev, very comfortable for visitors of Kiev. Very nice and kind personal. Good and free WiFi. Private parking. Spacious rooms and bathrooms, nice style of room. Very clean. Huge and comfortable beds, which is always nice :) Too bad for lobby and reception area, doesn't do justice. Breakfast in room. 5 min by walk from metro and main square of Kiev. Over all I am very happy to have chosen this hotel in Kiev.

My wife and I just spent our first 5 nights in Ukraine at the Bontiak, and were very impressed, and really happy we booked it. Originally, someone had recommended some of the older, better-known mid-price hotels, but when I looked into them, and read some reviews on TA, I wasn't very enthused about booking any of them. They sounded "OK" at best, definitely showing their Soviet heritage in terms of service and charm. Then I found a few reviews of the Bontiak, and booked it.

This is not a place for anyone who wants a big hotel, or a "full-service" one. No restaurant or coffee shop, bar, room service, or gift shop. But it's very attrractive, modern, clean and roomy. We had a large room with king bed; bathroom is spacious, large shower, always with hot water.
We loved the location, two minutes from St. Sophia and close walk to other great sites, restaurants (favourite restaurant: Le Cosmpolite), Opera, Theatre, and a short walk downhill (good climb back) to the Maidan and Khreshchatyk St.

Best of all was the staff, who gave great service, were all really warm, helpful, and ready to help with anything. We really felt at home there.

Some more info... Rooms are on 3 floors of the building (reception on the middle floor). It has I think 35 rooms, but only 25 in service right now. Breakfasts are ordered each day and delivered to your room. (We both recommend the Ukrainian breakfast. Be warned that the "American" breakfast -- eggs and sausages -- the "sausages" are hot dogs.

We had a large room for two, but the room came with just one bath towel. (We asked for more, and got them every day). Could use some more hangers for two people. (You can see my "complaints" are pretty small).

If you'd like a convenient, attractive, very friendly, small hotel in Kyiv, you can't go wrong with the Bontiak.

We stayed three nights at the Bontiak. The hotel is 2-3 blocks from the Opera, Gate of Kiev, Santa Sofía, thus perfect for walking and exploring this very upscale part of city. For further explorations the metro is with walking distance.
Our bedroom had a king size bed, nice size closet and very modern bathroom.There were robes and sleepers. The breakfast was brought to the room every morning because the hotel does not have a breakfast room and my only observation for improvement would be to add one more chair , one is not enough for a couple to sit for a meal.
As meal choices go, I specially recommend the Ukrainian cottage cheese pancakes , they were most delicious and portable.
By the way, in spite of having had a window overlooking a playground, the room was quiet. The wifi had good signal and the reception desk personnel were very courteous.
Our reservation was made through the hotel website around two and a half months before arrival and thus managed to get a very reasonable rate.
Spacziba !

Room Tip: If you go to the Opera, order a meal to go at Lemonade, located on the corner of the Hotel.

Prompted to write this after reading the negative review (while we were there in April). We were flabbergasted to read it, thinking a competing hotel must have inserted it.

The Bontiak is not a Five Star Luxury hotel nor does it pretended to be. It is a very well located facility with spacious, adequately appointed rooms/bathrooms. The breakfasts were good, not overwhelming.

Service was without flaw. It is not obsequious but rooms were spotless and the front desk was responsive. The breakfasts were brought to the room (we did not miss an in house restaurant) promptly.

Should you be looking for a comfortable hotel to see Kiev FROM as opposed to a palace to spend Kievan time IN this is a good choice.

In the exact hart of the city, within walking distance of all locations, on a very quiet street next to ex-KGB :-)

Refurbished development, having all amenities you may need (except a restaurant). Simply perfect if you dont need bar, lounge, gym or pool - just anice clean room, big bathroom and breakfast in room

The rooms are fresh and clean and very very big. We had the king size bed (with one big duvet). The bathroom had a whirlpool and was spacious and nice. We had also access to a large terrace. The location was perfect, just a few minutes from the big square, but in a nice and really quiet street. But still with easy access to all touristattractions.
The staff where very helpful and nice. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or anything, so breakfast was served at the door, which was perfect, because then we could have breakfast in bed every day. The breakfast menu had several choices and you chose what time you wanted it delivered. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
