Lion's Castle Hotel
Ranked #25 of 65 Hotels in Lviv
Reviewed October 20, 2009

We LOVED this place! We got room #1 in the Castle, which was gorgeous old mansion. Room huge, great new bed, new bathroom (though something retro about the whole room). Lots of extra blankets, feather pillows, towels. Fabulous breakfast in lovely restaurant. Very kind staff who spoke English--totally different than our experiences with people in other parts of Ukraine. Uphill 1 mile+ walk from train station and town but beautiful neighborhoods.

L'viv is surely a charismatic city which is still not yet spoiled by tourism as well as many other eastern cities nowadays, so it was quite hard to search through the net (before our departure) a good place to stay for 4 days.
Fortunately, for the fact that since many years I'm nutty of traveling and making reservation on my own, we sort things out well!
Lion's Castle or Zamok Leva is a neogothic villa situated in a residential district near L'viv centre (you can reach city centre by feet, or also by taxi. We found taxis very cheap if compared to italian ones!!).
Rooms are spacious, quiet, clean but not sophisticated... may we say charming??
Breakfast buffet is not really huge, but they also offer tasty cheese pancakes or eggs and bacon.
If you're not in a hurry and you don't like expensive hotels downtown, this is surely a very good choice.

The "Austrian" room we had in the annexe was a little exspensive
for what was not much more than student accomodation. Breakfast was good.
We were fascinated by the numerous police/soldiers that roamed the grounds
all night, some armed with trungeons others with automatic weapons - I think they
were guarding a government ministers very posh house next door. At least we felt safe - I think !!

I had a bright room nicely furnished and very quiet due to the double glazing. The staff was quite helpful with directions and ideas for nearby travel. The room was clean. Breakfast service was attentive with a choice of a number of hot dishes. Some will enjoy the ice cream served with "breakfast dessert".
If you will need internet access,check in advance to get the right room!

The stay in Lion's Castle left charming impressions on me.
The quiet and green place in park zone still quite near to the city center - 15 min by foot.
Clean and comfortable rooms, tastefully furnished. Friendly and helpful staff,
giving all the information needed and also useful advises.
And finally pleasant restaurant offering tasty food and cool things
like second beer for free during the football game watch :P

In travellers books this hotel ranges at least after the larger houses in Lviv. But I liked this small and cozy and very quiet hotel much much more than others. Perfect hospitality and friendliness from staff. Absolutely clean rooms with new bathrooms and a very nice location nearby a park outside of city-center (it only takes 15 Minutes footwalk to the Miskiewicz-ploschtad - or taxi for 15 UAH-1,5 EUR!!). Were there during my birthday and they served me a cake additionally with greetings at breakfast:-)! Also the price is very attractive!

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, and were very pleased with the service and the room! The staff was most helpfull; when there were language problems, they would come up with a dictionary. Also, the rooms were large, clean and well kept. The breakfast was good, and delivered in 3 courses. The hotel is not in Lviv downtown, but it is a nice walk through the park or a UAH 30 ride by taxi. Ride to the airport is about 30 minutes and also not expensive.
