The hotel is in the Podol district a short tube ride from the Centre of Kiev. The tube is helpfully just across the street, and is very cheap and very easy to use. Podol itself has a number of great bars and coffee shops, and its not too hard to find somewhere to eat or drink that has a waiterr with a little english language on the main street. (though beware rip-off merchants tarantinos!)
The hotel itself surpassed expectations.The rooms were well furnished, the heating was good, the bathroom was clean and hot water was plentiful. Beds and pillows were clean and comfortable, and the mirror/safe/bathrobes/slippers were nice touches.The free wifi was extremely helpful and fast enough for uploads/downloads.
The breakfast was, compared to other hotels in this part of the world, very good, with decent bread, meat, cheese, boiled eggs, cereal and juice. The waiters at breakfast didnt have great english so some of the orders were wrong, but frankly if you cant live with fried instead of scrambled then you are going to have way more problems travelling in the Ukraine than the wrong type of eggs.
The hotel restaurant was very good and there was one waiter in particular that spoke immaculate english and made good recommendations.
The reception staff were very helpful, and the concierge was more than happy to book trips and arrange tickets and taxis.
All in all, for the price, the rating and the location it was a great hotel.
