Sunflower B&B Hotel
The name is an oxymoron – it's more B&B than hotel – but we're not complaining. The highlight is the continental breakfast (with a warm pastry) delivered to your room, on request, by English-speaking staff...
Radisson Blu Hotel
The city's first international hotel had been well established as the city's best until the 2007 Hyatt opening jeopardised that title. The sumptuous rooms have fluffy beds that invite entry via flying leap, and the Asian spa is a nice touch.
Flashy new 35-room boutique hotel located equally close to maydan Nezalezhnosti and pl Sofiyska. The stylishly minimalist rooms are generously cut and well equipped, and breakfast is served in your room.
Podol Plaza Hotel
Top-end boutique hotels are popping up all over Kyiv’s Podil district. The latest and greatest is the intimate Podol Plaza Hotel .
This Stalin-era giant presiding over maydan Nezalezhnosti offers the best view of future revolutions, Orange or otherwise. Short on comforts, big on atmosphere, its musty rooms have air-con to protect you from natural and political heat.
Tired of Hyatts and Radissons? Here is Donbass oligarchs' take on the dolce vita. A sister of the legendary Donbass Palace in Donetsk, the Opera offers many of the same luxuries, plus a wonderful setting in an old tranquil neighbourhood...
What makes this hotel different is a kitchenette in each of the large comfortable rooms. It's not like Kyiv has any shortage of good inexpensive food, but should you need to cater for yourself – here is a perfect choice...
Lybid hails from the same Soviet architectural incubator as many other hotels in Kyiv, but it stands out from its siblings thanks to friendly service and convenient location – a five-minute walk from the train station and metro...
With breakfast served on the rooftop of a highrise building, most of which is occupied by tax collectors (oops), this new hotel is good value for money. The only complaint is that the receptionist can be hard to find when you need her most.
Over on the left bank, the 13-storey Bratislava sets new standards of ugliness on the outside, but on the inside it's actually decent value...
Affectionately dubbed 'the grenade', the Salute features psychedelic '70s furniture and a few rooms with exceptional views of the Dnipro. For a converted Soviet hotel it has surprising benefits, like smiling receptionists and a 24-hour business centre.
This friendly family-run hotel has an understated style, with smallish, individually decorated rooms tending towards the traditional, but with cleaner lines and fewer florals than usual...
Tried and true. Has English-speaking representatives and accepts credit cards.
This Polish outfit occupies several floors of the lower-quality Hotel Tourist on the left bank of the Dnipro. Breakfast costs 100uah extra.
Black Sea Hotel
Midrange hotels at mid-European prices are a rare breed in Kyiv these days, so don't expect much from this one. It is clean, friendly and – stretching boundaries a bit – one can call it central. Convenient for Lavra.
This is a last-ditch resort out by Holosiyvsky Park, the cheapest rooms are non-renovated and lack air-con. Service is professional.
Incoveniently located around 5km south of the city centre, just to the east of Zhulyany airport, this superb seven-room family-run hotel has immaculately kept rooms in period style and receives encouraging reviews from travellers for its friendly welc...
A Soviet high-rise on the left bank of the Dnipro, Slavutych lets you marvel at the golden domes of Kyevo-Pecherska Lavra and Vydubytsky Monastery from its bland, but totally acceptable, rooms. A Korean restaurant on the top floor comes as a bonus...
This concrete monster overlooking parliament is a great deal for couples who don't care for air-con. Alas, individuals get zero discount on old rooms, and the new 'Euro remont' rooms are grossly overpriced...
Dream House Hostel
Kyiv's most happening hostel is this gleeming new 100-bed affair superbly located at the bottom of Andriyivsky uzviz...
The Soviet-style Express has a mix of renovated and unrefurbished rooms. The cheapest have tiny beds and lack showers. Prices increase proportionally as amenities and coats of paint are added. Air-con rooms don't cost extra, but you must request them...
Premier Palace Hotel
This 5-star hotel with free Wi-Fi features richly decorated rooms and an elegant swimming pool with glass ceiling. It lies in the heart of Kiev, 100 metres from Besarabsky Market...
