I was positively surprised by Hotel Asteri during my 2-night stay in Kiev. It is situated in a quiet road, next to banks and a supermarket, and its entrance and reception are quite narrow. However, the room is very spacious, clean, and has everything you need: big and comfortable beds, chairs, a mini-kitchen with refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom is quite big and clean. Staff extremely helpful and polite. Wifi was excellent. It is a bit away from the main road, and the nearest metro station is about 8 minutes walking. The location is moderate, there is nothing special to do in the area and a bit far from the main Kiev tourist attractions (only Pechersk Lavra is in a walking distance). You need to be a bit careful if you walk at night, but the hotel itself is very safe.
Breakfast was disappointing, however, it is quite average and needs improvement, with more options and better quality in cheese and ham provided.
However, it has excellent value for money (unless you stay for the Champions League Final!) and I definitely recommend to anyone wishing to visit Kiev in a budget.More
