Arriving after a long flight, it was refreshing to come to a hotel that seemed a refuge in the city. Entering a car-wide passage from the street into the courtyard (typical of many structures in Lviv), you see an understated but elegant hotel
entrance. Around the rest of the courtyard are residences, with some laundry hanging out, a few people on balconies taking the air, etc., but that's also how you knew the place was real.
Warmly greeted at the hotel desk, English-speaking, no issues with the reservation. As with most hotel elevators, theirs is a two-person and two-bag size, but quiet and efficient.
The room was exceptionally clean, and marked with paper "sanitary" strips (evidence of cleanliness) on the sink, tub and bidet - yes, a bidet, too! The bed was comfortable, with flat screen tv available, all set in an alcove with drapes along the side - quite nice! I don;'t know if all rooms were like this, however. It was May, so weather was good and I can't comment on the air conditioning system since we didn't use it.
We walked to dinner just to stretch our legs. The hotel is not particularly close to the center of town, but is near a park and there are shops all along the street. It can be a bit of a jaunt, but any reasonably healthy person can walk from the hotel to most any attraction.
When we were to leave the next morning, a cab was arranged and they led us to a covered back entrance due to a heavy rain. The cab got us efficiently to the train station for our next adventure.
It's a good hotel, and I would have no qualms about returning to it. Everyone seemed to make an effort to give us a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Depending on your preferences, try the local cuisine. There's even a Ukrainian cafeteria-style restaurant in town where you can basically point at what you want - most signs are in English and Ukrainian. It's helpful to know at least the Cyrillic alphabet, to sound out words that will then sound familiar. Invest a little time in studying the language for a more satisfying stay in Ukraine, everyone will appreciate it. There are many small hotels such as the Edem, but this was a pleasant stay. Oh, remember that toilet paper is placed in the small metal trash can in the bathrooms, not flushed!
