Not so close to metro or downtown, but staff provided transport that made it nice. Rooms smaller than I expected, but otherwise it was fine. Nice, pretty garden helped a lot.
I and my girlfriend stayed in the hotel for few days. It was our first offline meeting and place was very important for me. I was met in the airport by owner Oksana and we talked about possible scenarios for first meeting. Hotel organized a dinner for us in the garden and created romantic atmospher there. Our staying was wonderful. We took hotel bicicals to explore the city and walked a lot. For my trip I couldn't find better hotel in Kiev.
Very courteous, pleasant, and helpful staff, great breakfast, clean and ample sized rooms, nice modern shower bathroom, and safe and secure. You do need to walk to the bus to get to the subway for most activities, but it's fast and easy. The hotel is in the suburbs and has a quiet and comfortable feel. It was nice being there and a nice place to come back to at the end of the day. Limited English TV but lots of stations for other languages. The hotel is well looked after and cared for and everything works. Everything was positive and deserves a positive recommendation.
This hotel is quite charming, the staff is very friendly, and at a nice price. Ordinarily this would be a hotel I would love to return to. However, it is in a residential area. Dogs are barking at all hours. There is no hotel bar or restaurant, although they do serve a small breakfast and will serve a small meal if you request it. The only restaurant in the area is a small but decent restaurant about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the hotel. Also, the hotel is nowhere close to downtown Kiev. With the normal Kiev traffic, it took a 30 minute taxi ride to get down town. Definitely has it's pros and cons.
The Oselya Hotel is a great hotel to stay at in Kiev. It is an apartment style flat that has been converted to a small hotel. The pricing is very reasonable, and the type of comfort and standards that the hotel has is similar to a Hampton Inn or a Courtyard Inn. There is free WIFI, bottle water, good heating and cooling in the rooms. If you can afford it, for $20 more, I would recommend staying in a Junior Suite. Ohh, this is very important, the Oselya Hotel has very good prices for arranging pick up and drop offs (Transfers) from the airport. Most places and Taxis can drive you broke with rip off prices. So, I strongly recommend you contacting the Hotel to help with this. The only draw back to the hotel is that it is about 10 minutes outside the downtown area, so you have to factor that in plans as far as meeting in the city. However, the hotel can make arrangements for Taxis to drop you off and pick you up in the city. And again, the rates for the Taxis if the hotel makes the arrangements is very good. One last thing, everyone that works at the hotel speaks good English.
I spent two days in the city centre at an average to below average hotel. I came to this Oselya hotel because of the traveller reviews and was very pleasantly surprised at how the previous reviews came to what it actually was: very quaint, small hotel setting with personal care. From the very nice, new, clean room, to the way the hotel owners paid attention to the small detail, the experience was very good. Every morning breakfast was made through a previous night arrangement/choice in menu at your time of choice. I was glad I stayed with a female friend because definitely the hotel is for couples. Not a central location, but all the nice features made up for it!
Hotel shuttle was not available, so a taxi was procured to the airport...but at a higher price than stated in their literature. I felt the hotel should have picked up the difference due to their non-provision of an advertised service. Power and air conditioning was out of service for several hours. I feel a credit should be due for this inconvenience and discomfort.
