Hotel Ukraine

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Located on the Maidan Square in the very center of the city. An old fashioned hotel, but with clean and spacey rooms and tidy bathroom. The Wifi worked well. The breakfast is various and delicious with a lot of cakes as a desert. The famous tourist places as St Sophia’s Cathedral, St Andrew’s Church or the Andrew’s Descent are in walking distance.

I stayed in Ukraine Hotel for three nights. At first I was assigned a room on the 12th floor at the right hand side of the hotel. Unfortunately there’s a factory nearby exhausting black smoke… which came into my room. I asked the receptionist for another room and got one on the 2nd floor, which was good. Quiet room facing the back of the hotel. The curtains are quite thin though and even at night there was a lot of light coming into the room. The bed was very comfortable, air conditioning worked well. Both room and bathroom were clean. The hotel has a very large breakfast buffet with some nice foods (not all to my liking though, but at least there was a lot of choice). Staff was friendly and helpful. I’d recommend staying in this hotel. Taxis to the airport in this hotel are overpriced by more than one third. I’d recommend taking a taxi in the street for cheaper prices.

We hosted a three-day event at the Hotel Ukraine this month, and their entire staff, especially Katerina in group services, worked extremely hard to make it a big success. We had a total of 20 couples there, and had a variety of very specific needs to meet, and it came off extremely well. The suites were especially useful for the group discussions we held throughout the event. Looking at other reviews, I'm baffled by any complaints about the food -- the staff provided us excellent lunches for a very reasonable price, and the standard buffet breakfast had enough variety for our guests. Yes, the hotel is a remnant of times gone by, and has its quirks. Our favorite was the four elevators, all on independent circuits, each in its own corner of the central lobbies on each floor. We became very efficient at hitting all four buttons with a minimum of effort! We were also amused at the random allocation of shampoos -- ours were in little packets, others were in standard sampler containers. But for the great location, the price was very reasonable, and we felt very well-treated throughout.

Spent 2 days for a congress. Good news: Nice position, next to the metro e to central Plaza, slow wi-fi. Bad news: it’s an old fashioned comunist-time hotel, all looks sad and old; it need to be restored; one of the worst breakfast of may life (terrible coffee, no scrambled eggs, no bacon, no croissants...only a few orrible pie...); reception service not so kind and helpful. First time of my life in Kiev, but, if there will be another chance, never be there again.

Every aspect except it’s location was low average at best. What bothered us most was: - the “gentlemen’s club” in the hotel and the herrasment from the female promoter to come to the club every evening when we left or returned to the hotel - a certain kind of ladies in the lobby (This site accused me of profanity for describing them as what they are) - paper thin walls and the draft in the building that makes it impossible to shut a door quietly. They shut with such a bang you sit straight up in bed every time someone returns to their room - many staff don’t speak a word of English - very worn-out, shabby and outdated rooms - water in the shower was never more than like warm - our balcony (and the surrounding ones) were covered in bird droppings - we specifically asked for a double bed but got 2 single beds - we were told sauna has been out of order for months The location is perfect. But there are other hotels nearby

Stayed in hotel for long weekend over (Western) Easter holiday and found hotel to be comfortable, good value and an excellent location bang in the centre of the city. The rooms were fine and the WiFi OK. Breakfast was good with a wide choice - although cold baked beans isn't my cup of tea. The staff were friendly and helpful so, all in all, highly recommend as a base to explore Kiev.

Overlooking the central square of Kyiv (Maidan Nezalezhnosti, Independence Square), you could not ask for a nicer view or a better location. Maybe lost some of its former glory, but still quite a nice hotel. Rooms are clean and reasonably comfy, service is good. The breakfast is alright, with a fairly wide selection. Wifi is free and seemed to work without issues. Recommended.

Me and my friend went to Ukraine with no expectations, we chose this hotel because it looked pretty nice on the pictures, it was cheap and was located very central. We were very happy with our stay, of course it does not measure up to four-star hotels in London, Paris, Stockholm etc. But we enjoyed our stay, we did not spend too much time in the hotel since we were out exploring all day. It was very cheap to stay here, the room was just fine with a great view, maybe not if you are going as a couple and want a romantic weekend, but if you are going just to explore the city it is just fine. The hotel has a restaurant which serves good food, to good prices with a beautiful view. The hotel also has a own bar/night club and a lobby area to drink coffee and drinks and serve lighter food. The hotel does really have a great location, entrance to the subway and to a mall is just across the street. Resturants, bars, coffee shops are just a short walk away and you are in walking distance to St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery and Saint Sophia's Cathedral, Golden Gate and so on, and the subway station is Maidan Nezalezhnosti, which is located central, you can go to any direction straight from there. Tip is to take a walk around Kiev if the sun in out, is it rather beautiful and a lot to see. The service could have been better, the elevator was really slow, they do not accept EUR and you can not put things on the room, so make sure to have money with you. The hotel does have an ATM in the reception and there is an ATM just across the street (closes at 22). The hotel has personnel 24/7. We were not able to eat breakfast, since there was no seats when we got there. That was the most disappointing during our whole trip, since the breakfast is included in our room, but there was no place to sit and the staff didn’t really help out. So that was pretty bad. Never happened to me before. Over-all, we are happy, but it is not as luxury as it want to present itself :)

Very nice and kozy hotel in the centre of Kiev near Maidan. Have been there 4 times with my friends and always satisfied. Prices are really reasonable and friendly. When you looking for some Soviet nostalgia, this is the right place to stay.

Stayed at Ukraine Hotel 3 nights end December 2017 and we can only recommend this place. The location is more than excellent as the hotel is overlooking Maidan Square. CheckIn/Checkout was easy, staff speaks more or less good English. Rooms were comfortable and absolutely clean. Two things to mention on the „negative“ side: it’s not the newest hotel so some refurbishments could help here and there, elevators are really crap as they are not operating in a coordinated fashion. Breakfast is a bit poor, would recommend having some nice breakfast stuff outside.
