“Nothing special except the location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Nothing special about this hotel. Service and lobby is average. The rooms are very standard. Back side view is terrible. There is a humidity smell on corridors. There was also noise from the backyard. You don't feel anything special about this hotel. Only plus is the location. We tried to spend as minimum time as possible. Breakfast room is also terrible and you are sharing this experience with the left-over crowd of casino which is next door.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights.

Positive:
1: Location, Location, Location. Pretty much no other hotel beats this location. Right next to the central square, close to restaurants, bars, shops.
2: Recently renovated. Clean rooms, large TV, good bath room

However, it is very clear that this hotel is NOT equipped/prepared for business travellers!!

Negative:
1: TEMPERATURE!! The room temperature was 25 degrees and no way to lower this!! Even with an open window it only reduced to 24.. (while it was 10c outside!) An open window is not a good option due to noice levels! I complained 4 times about the heat, every time hearing they will solve it!! I gave up!! clearly no customer understanding and no solution was given!! Management did not come back to me even though promised couple of times.
3: Beds: To hard! For the double beds they simply moved two single beds together, feeling the split clearly. Not comfortable
4: No IRONING facilities?!? I was informed I had to let the maids iron my shirts for 32Hrynva per shirt.. How ridicilous is this??
5: No coffee/tea facilities in the room!! Of course you can go down to buy a coffee, but that is not the comfort of working/staying in the room
6: No chairs!! I could not sit comfortably in the room. There were no chairs, just some kind of footstalls
7: To enter the restaurant you have to go through a metal detector.. What a welcomy feeling ?!?
8: No business center with a computer and possibility to print. Yes the front desk could print, but this is not a good option, and very time consuming and sending the documents to them first can be sensitive..

Furthermore it was sometimes a bit questionable why certain people (ladies) where in the lobby.. Clearly no hotel guests..

If they can solve the heating issue this might be an OK hotel for holidays, however, there are too many missing parts for the business traveller. Next time I will return to Hotel Opera, Fairmont Hotel or even IBIS!

Room Tip: At least get a room at the rear side. However, make sure airconditioning is working before you book...

Dear Guest!
Thank You very much for taking the time and sharing your point of view about Khreschatyk Hotel.
We are so sorry for all inconveniences you’ve experienced at the hotel. We will surely take into consideration all your criticism and try to improve it in order to avoid similar inconveniences in future.
But we have just a few remarks to some of your comments.
Firstly, we would like to mention that all necessary equipment for ironing is keeping in the special room at every floor and you could use it whenever you wanted. And what is more important, you hadn’t to pay for it because this service is free for all our guests.
Secondly, if you didn’t want to go downstairs in order to drink some coffee or tea there, you could call Room Service and order to your room any drink you like.
And finally, we can’t understand your complain concerning the absence of business centre, because there is one at the hotel. It is located on the ground floor of the hotel and is 24-hours open in order our guests can use it whenever they need.
All in all, we hope that you’ll visit our hotel once more. We could easily guarantee that your next visit will be more pleasant.
Best wishes,
Hotel Administration.

On the edge of Independance Square (Maydan) this hotel is very much at TD centre of Kiev. The metro station is only 50m from the hotel so you are in easy reach of everywhere. The Olympic stadium is only 10 minutes away.
The hotel is clean and functional. Free wifi, casino. Apple store. Overall good value for money.

Excellent Hotel in the very centre of Kiev, close to all main places to see. Large, clean rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. For breakfast I would recommend going to the underground floor were a very nice café offering a good variety of local and international food.

I was positively surprised - everything seemed to be very freshly remodeled and upgraded and the room and bed were very comfortable and well-thought out, albeit the room was a little small, but that is typical in Europe. I especially liked the room's light controls, the modern bathroom with a great shower, and the only minor thing I would point out is that the heating did not really work as strongly as I would have liked. I think it is a function of energy (=money) saving plan.

Service was great, location is unbeatable, and even if I was on the second floor facing the busy Khreshatyk Boulevard, I had no noise issues within- or without the hotel.

I wish they had a fitness center, that was the only thing I was lacking to be fully satisfied, but regardless, I strongly recommend this hotel when visiting Kiev.

Room Tip: I am not sure if the entire property was remodeled or only certain rooms/floors, so I would make sur...

The hotel's redeeming feature is its location close to the central area and only 5 mins walk to a tube station. Be careful which room you get - ours on first floor to rear suffered from continuous 'generator drone' 24/7 and door banging noise from rear staff entrance ==> reduced, disturbed sleep!! You have to go through the card gaming area security to get to Breakfast where coffee was a little stewed but otherwise a good spread - hot and cold food.
Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Room well cleaned but daily rate at £140 ($215 USD) was 20% higher than our experience at other equivalent european city break hotels with same facilities. Also you have to pay a lot extra (not included in room rate) to use the spa facilities.

Dear Guest!
Thank You very much for your comments regarding your stay at Khreschatyk Hotel. Your opinion is very important for us. Due to it we have an opportunity to improve the level of our service.
We are really thankful to you for pleasant words about the location of the hotel, its reception staff and room service.
We are dreadfully sorry for all inconveniences you’ve experienced at our hotel, especially for the noise. We are sure to assume all necessary measures in order to avoid such problems in future.
But we have just a few remarks to your comments.
Firstly, it should be mentioned that we didn’t announce anywhere that SPA is included in room rate. So, it is only up to our guests whether to use this service or not.
And finally a few words about our prices. We are sorry that they didn’t fit you. But we could say with certainty that our prices are rather reasonable in comparison with other city center Kiev hotels. Besides we have a lot of special packages, offers.
We hope that despite all trifles, you liked our hotel. We are looking forward to see you again soon.
Best regards,
Hotel Administration
