Hotel Ukraine4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is big and from the outside it looks quiet impressive. The location right downtown and close the the main square and the metro it is a nice spot to stay if you want to see some of the city. The rooms are very outdated, not cleaned every day? Also the four elevators can not handle the number of people if they work (which often was not the case for all of them). Breakfast is poor but around the square you can make that up (dozens of places). It is a Ukrain 4 star hotel for a reasonable price! Not my cup of tea!
Our suite was quite dated but clean and comfortable. Had to negotiate to get enough towels for two but otherwise everything was great. Can't beat the view, the restaurant was very good, and the location is superb.
This was the perfect starting point for discovering Kiev. The view to the city was amazing. Rooms were fairly standard. Excellent big breakfast buffet. Had a little trouble trying to order vegetarian food for lunch so had to go elsewhere, English wasn't strong. Directly across the street is a mall with access down to the main square.
its good enough to stay with budget and very good location in center of kiev city and in the main favorite khreshchatyk street food is also good safe awesome view for the front rooms looking for maidan square in kiev
Just flown back from Kiev after spending a relaxing week at the Hotel Ukraine staying on the 5th floor. Wonderful views at breakfast (7 am to 10 am) and a hearty breakfast, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, meats, cheeses, different breads, meatballs, chicken wings, pastries, cakes etc, etc! The food was also good one lunchtime - special offer 120 UAH each for 2 courses. Really enjoyed freedom square passing though the Globus shopping mall (Billa supermarket there) and then travelling on an excellent metro - 3 lines never more than 4 mins wait for a train. The room was large and comfortable but TV would last 2 mins before receiving an error message. Bathroom was clean but one did get occasional sewage smells. Water (bath and shower) was not particularly hot. Most nights were very quiet but one night the people above our room were very noisy I do however recommend staying at this hotel.
I had a very good five night stay. I had a suite room but it did not face Maidan. I tried emailing reception to ask if I could switch rooms before I arrived and pay extra but just kept replying that my room does not face Maidan so I gave up. Check in was easy with luggage storage room. This is an older historic hotel in a 12 story bldg. There are four elevators but the buttons are not linked so you have to push each button for each elevator. This wastes time when people get in other elevators so your elevator will stop on every floor where somebody pushed the button. The metro station entrance is in the rear. There is the big Globus shopping mall in front as well as Maidan Square. There is a landing on each floor by the elevators from where you can take pictures of Maidan even if your room doesnt face that way. For such a huge and spacious suite I would have liked the bathroom to have been bigger which was tight with a curved bathtub leaving less room to stand and shower. The hairdryer is also screwed to the wall making it awkward to use. Breakfast buffet was good and strong wifi.
The building and layout is old fashioned. Service is good. Staff are prompt and courteous. Many of them speak English which is a good thing. The breakfast is good as well. Struggled with the AC as the remotes were missing and I was told I will not be able to use the AC. Laundry and Room Service slam the phone on your face when you speak in English with them. Housekeeping and Laundry service is good and prompt. The location of the hotel is fantastic and is very lively. Good places to go around as well.
The hotel is big and very central! It's in a winning location. The hotel is designed in an antique style but it's very convenient for a stay. In addition, the reception staff will help you with everything you need.
This hotel is centrally located offering a good rate. . It's clean and the rooms were of a good size. It is a very old landmark hotel and carries a lot of nostalgia with it. The staff I found to be a little on the cold side. I don't think this an attitude issue but we found the Ukrainian people to be of that nature. They always seem to be very serious. Not necessarily a bad thing. They were good to us and let us check in early after an early morning arrival flight, The breakfast was quite adequate with lots of choices. The elevators are slow stopping at many unnecessary floors. I would definitely stay there again.
The good: perfect location and nice, big and clean (if slightly dated) rooms The weird: you have to ask for an AC remote (we booked a few rooms and all of us had to go seeking remotes on a swelteringly hot day - some got their's quicker than others); our room came with one glass and one towel (we had to ask for more for the two of us); despite being four elevators, they run randomly and slowly and it's almost always quicker to walk down eight flights of stairs; we needed a cork screw but were not allowed to take one to our room - we had to schlep down, have the bottle opened, and schlep back up (which with the dodgy lifts meant it took us 30 mins to open a bottle of wine). The bad: after dark the hotel lobby was populated rather obviously with 'ladies of the night'. Any suspicions were confirmed when we walked in mostly in couples but the single male member of our group was propositioned, two nights in a row.
