I have stayed at the Gintama for three weeks at various times this year. As the title to this review suggests, in my experience there are few - if any - great lodging deals in Kyiv but in my estimation the Gintama is about as good as it gets.
The problem seems to be that there are few mid-range price hotels in town. Sure, you can stay at the Radisson, Hyatt or Intercontinental if you insist on 4 star amenities... and don't mind the prices (which are, in my opinion, outrageous). Still, even if I were willing to spend the money (which I am not) I have never felt comfortable in a hotel where I feel like I should be in a business suit when passing through the lobby.
If you feel the same way, the Gintama is probably a good choice for you.
A very helpful and friendly staff.
Clean and modern accommodations.
A great location (a five minute walk from Independence Square, St. Michaels and St. Sophia).
Decent (free) breakfast with 'real' coffee (expresso, 'Kava Americansk'... whatever you want).
Good air conditioning and heating - with on-site staff to handle problems if/when the occur.
The showers are very, very small.
In the U.S. a comparable room would cost 40% less.
The hotel is small so rooms will not always be available (you might view this as a "Pro").
I hope this helps in making your decision.
