“My favorite place to stay in Kiev”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I am a married lady, traveling alone on business. The Opera Hotel, while slightly off the main street, has stunning architecture and decor, very polite and professional staff, beautiful rooms and the food is excellent. They were happy to give me a complimentary wake up call, and served me coffee, in order to catch an extremely early flight back to the United States. I must also add, that it is one of the only hotels in Kiev where you will not see prostitutes openly hangling around the lobby or perimeter of the hotel. Very refreshing.

Very good hotel, nice service, but it took eternity in the hotel restaurant to get ordered food. But I believe they will improve.
Good sleeping, good location, very close to the center and what important, to the shop with a cheap vodka :-)
Recomend to stay in this hotel few days to admire beautiful Kiev.

Room Tip: Buy your own beer in the shop if you like to taste local. In the mini bar only Heiniken :-( and Carl...

This review is long overdue!
I stayed at Opera on two occasions in 2012 and both times really liked it. Very spacious room (was at their larger suites), excellent breakfast (with somewhat unorthodox view) and a spa to die for - just perfect to relax and unwind after a long haul flight
There was a bit of a mix up at check out as the manager on duty was not aware the stay had been prepaid in full but the issue got rectified quickly
Overall a great place to stay and the price is a bargain for the level of service you get

This hotel is just a few hundred meters from the National Opera but still shielded from the noise of the main streets. The rooms are great, with comfortable beds, large bathrooms and all the amenities needed by the business traveler. The service is 24/7 and excellent. The reception and the rest of the lobby staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. This is definitely the hotel of my choice in Kiev..

Gregmore155 from New York City must have stayed at a different hotel to the one my wife and I have just returned from. The hotel were unable to offer me anything other than a standard room but what a standard - clean, comfortable, large bathroom and Mouton Brown toiletries - a joy in every way. The staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful and always ready with a smile. The breakfast buffet was really excellent - a wonderful buffet selection with especially good selection of home made breads. In every way superb - well done to the management and staff.

Excellent service, friendliness and helpfulness, not only this made a good hotel. All this and more you can find in Opera. I travel a lot in the last 10 years and this hotel is one of the best where I ever was! The rooms are very clean, silent, from some rooms you can have an excellent view to Kiev. During the last snow storm I got a super service, the reception find a taxi for me (from 10.000 could be only 100 can drive during this incredible storm). For me is the name for this: excellent service! Of course the hotel is good situated in the city center, closed to ARENA, the Oper and so on ... Special Tip: Cafe Reprisa in the same road! Breakfast is also excellent, also the restaurant ...

Room Tip: Beginning with level 7 or 8 you could have a really good view over Kiev!

Hotel is absolutely terrible from the check in to the room to the bathroom.
Check in took for ever, at 1 in the morning, all you want is to go to bed. The room are old, the carpet has stain everywhere. the bed are as good as the bed at the motel 6! Pillows are uncomfortable. The bathroom is from the fifties, the water in the bathtub is yellow/brown.. (took some pictures). I will never ever stay there again!
This hotel should be a one star, thats it.
