Hotel has very good location and reasonable price. breakfast is delivered to the room as they do not have any restaurant. it is built into a slope - so funilly you go down to your room - like several basements.
Hotel has very good location in center of Kiev, near all the major sights. A little bit hidden but we didnt have difficulties to find it. Rooms are nice and clean in modern style. We felt very comfortable. Breakfast is good but it needs to be ordered the night before and it is served directly to the room. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again!
Easy to walk to the center of Kiev. Great location and very quiet. Nicely decorated room was very comfortable, spacious and good place to rest. Breakfast is ordered the night before and delivered directly to the room. Location is hidden but it makes for the rooms to be quiet and away from the main center of town.
Not so hard to find the hotel even though many have written that in their reviews. No elevator(?). Pretty nice room with refrigerator but there was no safety box. When you are in the bathroom people can look at you from the building opposite, especially when it's dark outside. We would have given this hotel 4 stars if they had serverd ordinary breakfast. The breakfast is delivered to your room and was not that impressive. Upon check-out they said we hadn't paid for our room even if we paid on arrival, luckily we had the receipt.
You travel under the archway of a large building to get to the back where this hotel is located. The hotel seems to be an afterthought to the larger apartment building it is attached to. I don't believe there is an elevator in this hotel, so be prepared to carry your bags up or down stairs. The bed I had was too large for the room and sat low to the ground making it difficult to sit on. Breakfast is delivered to your room. You have about 6 choices you make the night before. Towels are apparently a hot commodity as my room had one bath towel and one hand towel. The location is central to several sights. Interestingly, I tried to break a bill that was worth about $19 US and the front desk did not have enough money to change it. Overall, the hotel is fine - not great, but not terrible either.
I stayed for a couple of nights. The room was extremely spacious and well equipped. The shower could have benefited with little more power but that's just because I'm spoiled at home! Strangest thing is that breakfast is served in the room, so you effectively have to choose what you want when you're not really thinking breakfast ie the evening before. Easy walking distance to restaurants and bars, as well as other attractions.
This hotel is very conveniently located in the centre of Kiev, about 5 minutes' walk from St Sophia's cathedral and 10 minutes from St Michael's Golden Dome Monastery. It is a 10 minute walk downhill to the Maidan Independence Square. The hotel is not so easy to find, because it is located behind some very smart residences. Look for the small arrow sign saying "BONTIAK" beside an entrance arch. The staff are friendly and helpful and they speak good English. The rooms are large and clean, but try to avoid any of the rooms on the same floor as the main reception, because the walls are quite thin and they can be noisy. The hotel is "upside down", with most of the residential floors actually downstairs, beneath the reception floor. There is no lift, so large cases need to be carried downstairs. We stayed for 1 night and were on the same floor as the reception. We then went to Chernobil and came back for 2 more nights, but on a lower floor with less noise. I would recommend this hotel.
Had a great time in Kiev over Easter and the Bontiak contributed greatly! First off, great location right near the center of the city. It was easy for us to walk around to many of the tourist attractions. Some people complain the hotel is hard to find at first, which is true since it is behind the building you get taken to by google maps, but once you go up the stairs and find the entrance it really isn't a problem. Hotel is very clean and everything looked new. Breakfast in the morning was great. They would bring it to your room at a specified time and we had a table in our room to eat at given there is no dining room, which honestly I liked. They had many options to choose from and all was great. They even had vegan porridge option! (Only compliant on breakfast is it did not come with coffee, but can't have it all we just picked some up outside) Additionally just to note they do take credit card as I paid with my VISA. We booked early so we got a good price as price went up as it got closer to holiday but this is all as expected. In short, had a great experience at the Bontiak and would recommend if visiting Kiev!
Маленький и очень приятный отель в самом центре. При этом очень тихо, все окна выходят во двор. Очень приятный и дружелюбный персонал! Вкусные завтраки. A nice little hotel in the very centre - just the opposite of Sofia church. Very quiet, which I find important. Very nice and friendly staff, making sure you can always turn to them with questions.
A bistro hotel in a budget. Clean, affordable and near the city centre. What more could you ask for!!!!! The only downside is the breakfasts that are brought in from outside, but hey, who cares as long as they are edible ))))))
