Very big building in very quite area although very central, only 10 minutes walk to the Arena and 15 minutes walk to independence square great price for the location , it is much better than lots of small hotels in the center which is very noisy !
Well, it's large. And it is central. The President has all you need for a business trip or a conference: all the facilities and the comfort of a large hotel, from conference rooms to restaurants to all the rest. What is missing is grace and beauty, but probably this is a remnant of bygone times when these things were not important. Perhaps with time...
I have enjoyed my stay in this hotel very much. It is a big building pretty much in the centre of Kiev, next to big shopping mall and restaurants. The Breakfast was very good with a lot of options (and fresh bread). Room was very clean and had a modern look. Staff spoke English very good and was friendly. Prices are (European standard) also not very expensive. Will go back to this hotel when visiting Kiev for sure.
President hotel is a nice hotel, comfortable beds, nice rooms, clean, good service. It's location is good also. Breakfast nice with good variety, however dining options are not sufficient , as there is only one cafe-restaurant at the lobby with not much of variety for dining options. Room service is very good and personnel very helpful and kind.
Good quality for the price! The hotel is pretty good and you can feel the remnants of the Soviet era. The breakfast is full of options with a nice view. The hotel is located near the centre of the city. I recommend if you are on a budget.
I attended a work related conference at the hotel a couple of weeks ago. The hotel is situated on a hill with a walking distance to good restaurants and bars in Kiev. The hotel gives you a bit of a feeling from the old Soviet Union period which I found interesting. Many of the staff speaks good English and the check in was very efficient and quick. The room I had on the 6th floor was not particular large but suited me well. The mattress was very comfy and the bathroom was very well organized and with a good size. Unfortunately no kettle / coffee / tea arrangement which was something I missed during my stay. The room service was very effective and so was the laundry service. The breakfast was in my opinion good and tasty and with an excellent selection of fresh fruit. I also thing the lunch service was good with a good selection of various options. No coffee during the lunch service which was something I missed. The hotel have a gym with ok equipment and the lobby bar offers cakes and coffee in addition to various types of beverages. One thing I did not like so much was the “constant bombardment” of hotel type of music. In the restaurant during breakfast, in the lobby 24/7, in the elevator etc. I am not a big fan this type of music and during the workshop when we had informal meetings in the lobby, we had to ask the staff to turn it down as it was simply too loud. I would look into this if I was the hotel’s management. All in all, I did enjoy my stay at the hotel and I am sure that I will choose the Presidency hotel next time I visit the beautiful city Kiev.
Rooms are big and fine, but sine it s a old hotel made during the Soviet Era, it still have feel every where. Major was big rooms, and separation with small balcony view to look around. rooms was silent but only issue I faced was with the non availability of universal power sockets in the rooms. so in case you are planning, I recommend it to carry it with you. Also missing fro the list is tea maker, it was better to have a tea maker in the rooms instead asking you guest to rely only on coffee machine kept in side the rooms. Staff co operation is awesome and great, though it kind of bit difficult to speak in English, but they are very helpful to make sure the things are going fine. Restaurant is also fine to enjoy.
This is a large hotel with good facilities. Reception staff are quick, efficient and friendly. The hotel was busy with a wide range of visitors, tourists, sports teams and business visitors. The hotel is situated on a bit of a hill and there are official taxis outside. I would recommend using these as my colleague and I were taken for a bit of a mystery tour to find a restaurant and ended up about 25 metres from where he picked us up. Luckily my colleague spoke Russian and was able to get around the language issue. However, back to the hotel. Breakfast was pretty good, to be honest better than I was expecting, the room was clean and spacious and although my room had a balcony (small) it did have a distinct downward slant, so I avoided using it. There was not much of a view to enjoy to be honest. All in all if you are looking for a quality hotel in a quieter area you will be fine here. A word of warning, however, there was definite evidence of girls who were obviously not guests hanging around the bar and public areas.
I had to stay in this hotel for 2 weeks. Noticed that breakfast was very simple. No bacon, etc. Rooms were cleaned when I put on a notice in the door. But overview was nice. No ironing board in the room. Simple, mostly clean, quiet, not 4-star, but good 3-star hotel! Easy to go to centre of the city.
When we arrived at the front of this hotel because of old and pretty ugly exterior - just said uhhh what a mistake! But, fortunately that is the only "bad" moment here. Reception is just nearby the entranxe, easy acceptanle, always ready to help (concierge too). Rooms nice, clean, view on the bulidinga around centre. Restaurant positioned well,easy to approach, all meals regular-nothing bed - nothing special. Many meetimg rooms, equiped fully. Near meeting rooms is night club so if you like it go for it :-) also one floor club is small swimming pool,sauna... 10 min from hotel is sport hall shopping centre Gulliver and centre itself is little bit further. Conclusion-nice play to stay-enjoy!
