“NOT for the price!”
Reviewed January 31, 2007

The Gintama Hotel in Kiev is the great advantage of being one of the few nice places to stay in the city. Unfortunately it's way overpriced for what you get. Strengths . . . rooms are clean, well-equipped and up-to-date. Solid 4-star European quality. But things go down hill from there. Weaknesses . . . after communicating my desire to pay with MasterCard via email and telephone, I arrived at the Gintama to discover that they preferred I pay with cash (pointing me to the large ATM machine a few feet away from the front desk). When I mentioned my strong desire to pay with credit card (as agreed via email), they backed down . . . for the first night. The second night (they moved me to a different room unexpectedly), they gave me a line about their credit card terminal being down, which though possible is unlikely.

Next weakness . . . breakfast is terrible! The cheese is dried on the edges, the coffee tastes like mud, etc. I passed the second morning.

Bottom line . . . avoid the Gintama. Other places are just as nice and more reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Gintama while visiting friends in Kiev. The location was perfect for us - - near St. Michael's Cathedral. We stayed in a junior suite that had a very ample sized bedroom with a comfortable queen sized bed , a wardrobe (ask for extra hangers) and not bad pillows, a small sized living area with a small couch - desk and chair and a miniscule bathroom - small shower only - small sink and toilet -everything in the room and the hotel was very well taken care of - we paid $200.00 USD a night (pay cash get a discount!) This hotel is on the bottom floor of an apartment building. The rooms are below ground level - but have windows that let in light and a view- the staff is charming and very helpful - and the breakfast (which is included) was more than ample and delicious - plus they will deliver it to your room for no extra charge - - we enjoyed our stay at the Gintama.
