Stayed here last year, the hotel is quite nice, rooms are spacious and staff is helpful.

Drawbacks include quite cold rooms (I stayed on the top floor) - my room had an electric heater next to the bed, which I had to turn on/off myself. Also the TV wasn't working great, but I didn't have enough time to complaint about it :)

Room Tip: Avoid last floor

I stayed at this hotel my first time in Kiev. For the price I paid I would not stay here again. I did not find the reception very friendly, but still not a deal breaker. My problem was that it was so noisy, that I could not sleep the whole night due to street noise. There are also the trams that run outside this hotel that cause a lot of the street noise as well. What good is a hotel if you can't sleep because of all the noise.

Hotel is in West bank (old area) of Kiev. The rates are between 120 to 150 Euros per night for two single bed / king bed room).
The room are nice in interior and as king bed room you have enough space. The bath is a little small and the armatures are old style.
Not all employees are fluent in English. The breakfast is only a small buffet, which is not the standard in size and choices. But the food which offered is nice.
Main problem during my stay was brown water out of the shower, which couldn’t be fixed.
Summary, a hotel which offers you all basic needs (I assume that the water problem was a single event), but give you not more.

Room Tip: Take big bed room...

We reluctantly had to a do an overnight in Kiev during a winter cold-snap.

Thankfully we stayed at the Podol Plaza and they did a really good job in smoothing some of the more unpleasant aspects of the Ukraine tourist industry!

Staff were professional and friendly, room was really clean and more than good enough for our stay.

It is far from out and out luxury, and is more of a business hotel than anything else (it was too cold for much walking around the old town nearby!) but it really was more than good enough for our needs. Anything better would have been more than double the price I think...

If you travel single for business, try not to get the Single classic room. It is smaller than the bathroom on the Single King Room. I had to upgrade via my travel agent and with extra $$$, as the receptionists did not even consider offering me something better. Hotel was empty. At check-out they tried to charge me as well for the upgrade. In total I probably spent 1 hour waiting for the upgrade and to checkout without paying twice.
Apart from this, the hotel was reasonable, rooms facing main street may be noisy in the morning, Breakfast is ok if you ask a la carte. Area is good, walking distance to nice restaurants.

to sum-up, next time I will choose elsewhere :)

Room Tip: do not book single classic.

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.

Room Tip: higher floors mean hotter rooms but less noise from the trams
