Stayed there for one night, payed 1250 grivnas for total one night stay, expected a great service for such money. Breakfast in not included. In Kiev you can book a hotel for twice less money or rent apartment. Before arrival (1 week) have sent reservation department email with special request to make some simple decorations for my husband, who had...

We were told during our stay that the island (Hydropark) that the hotel is based on is one of the areas of Kiev to avoid, especially as two young girls traveling alone. However the hotel room was really nice and they even left my friend a bottle of champagne on her birthday! We only ate once in the restaurant and...

Visited the Bakkara Art-Hotel in mid-October - while the hotel is a little out of the centre of Kiev, the metro station, Hydropark, is a mere 5 minute walk from the hotel - this walk isn't the most pleasant at night but it is fine. The Hydropark metro is a 5 minute journey into the centre of Kiev. The rooms...

We booked through a website and were expecting something much better based on the reviews but we were made to feel as though we weren't really wanted there, the mini bar was taken away and the staff made us very aware that we were in a basic room (I would have been happy to upgrade).

I stayed here as a speaker at an event. The host conference organizer chose it. The views are pretty on the water side but it is a boat. It is not convenient to drag luggage down the halls. The Internet was slow. The dining room selection was limited and mediocre for breakfast. The bed was uncomfortable and the mattress was...

Stayed in this hotel as a couple for two nights whilst briefly visiting Kiev. The hotel is in a good location as it is out the way so little traffic noise. It is about 12 minute walk from the Hydropark Metro station which is an easy walk through the park. Having read other reviews, we did not walk through here...
