The Podol is an elegant, old-school hotel, very nice refurbished. It's in the Podol neighborhood, just north of the center of Kiev (Maiden Nezalezhnosti), Gentrifying, but still some grit. Very nice staff. Excellent breakfast, as long as you get there early. One day we slept in, and got there just before 11, and the pickings were a little slim. So get up early! The last night was not so great -- the couple in the neighboring room were talking and having sex all night, and we didn't get any sleep. The walls are apparently very thin. I was also negatively surprised by one thing: I ordered a taxi from the hotel to the airport. They said the charge would be 500 hryvnia (about $19). We had heard from our guidebooks that the maximum you should pay was either 300 or 400 ($11 / $15). So, I do hope that they are putting their customers' interest first.
I appreciated the window in the bathroom and the bathtub, the room itself was super big, customer service overall was good, people were attentive, they could have been more friendly but they did overall help whenever needed.
Overall very good Staff knew English. Great location for food, banks, shops etc.Clean rooms.
Imagine coming to the hotel only to find out that your reservation is not in the system and the only way to have a room was to pay rate that's about $40 higher than in an original reservation? That's what happens when you deal with Podol Plaza Hotel. The staff was unhelpful and they did not want to honor web rate. In my opinion it was overpriced given small room size and customer service at the registration desk. I would not stay with them in the future.
The room was very nice relative to what I expected in Kiev based upon information received from others who had visited Kiev. Most of the staff spoke English and were very courteous and helpful.
