As far as the basics, this hotel has all you need. The room is in good order and the bathroom, although small, is clean and in good working order. Everything works. Since I am using the internet a lot, I have noticed periodic glitches that usually resolve within a minute. The bed is comfortable and warm enough, but there are...

Expres is a kinda old hotel, located near train station (10 min walk) and metro station (5 min walk). Across hotel is a park. Rooms are decent and clean. Restaurant on 16th floor serves good food. Quite good prices for Kyiv. Staff speaks good English.

Don't leave your valuables in a room. The cleaners are thieves. I left my mobile phone in a bathroom on a white towel and it's gone. The cleaner denied seeing it. They think cleaning the room means to do the bed only.

Although they were helpful and polite, there is still a lot to learn about quality and customers' needs for people running this hotel. Especially if you don't speak Russian or Ukrainian. They should slow down with cleaning the tables in front of people still eating.

A typical soviet style building with worn-out decoration and tapestry but nice view of kiev from the restaurant (on 16th floor) and good located. in my opinion, it would need serious renovation specially taking into account the newly built hilton and the ibis hotel on next doors offering much better comfort and standards. Breakfast is good with decent choice but...
