In terms of architecture and design the Salute is a true gem in Kiev. Its a 1980s built soviet-style piece of architecture which is a sign of the last defiant struggle before the breakdown of the soviet empire. And in contrary to many many other examples in eastern europe you'll find this hotel in almost unrefurbished condition. Of course the reception and many other parts of the lobby are 'littered' with many things ther do not belong there but you still get the feeling of a cool and well designed soviet hotel of the 80s. The rooms are still original as well. I know this is not everybodies style but I liked it a lot. So go there if you want to catch a bit of cold war flavour. By the way the brakfast was terrible and the stuff not the friendliest I found around the world.
