I was booked in to the Boutique Hotel Riviera by clients (who were covering the cost of my trip). I arrived Sunday afternoon and checked out Friday morning. The staff were efficient and helpful at all times. The room was very big and very comfortable with a huge and lovely bed. The bathroom (with a tub and shower combined) was also comfortable, clean, and well-lit. I was out at meetings etc all day, the weather was cold and wet (blizzards), and the hotel was a very cosy and welcoming place to come back to each evening. I had a complimentary "welcome" drink in the bar the first night but thereafter stuck to room service, as the restaurants were empty and not much fun. The location is great: you can get the funicular rail up the hill to walk around the city, or take the metro – both just outside the hotel. My one regret is that I didn't try the spa (it was on my floor) but after a long day in Kiev, wrapped up in the hotel's bathrobe with a glass of (very reasonably priced) wine from the minibar, my room was just too comfortable to leave!

Room Tip: Room 317 was on the side next to the funicular and metro stations, bit of a view of the main street...

I come here often while on busines trips. Never had any complaints bug enough to remember and mention. Excellent location in the center of Kiev right next to funicular, metro and dozens of restaurants, decent prices (albeit after a corporate discount), nice amenities and good service. Except I didn't quite enjoy the breakfasts — while looking nice everything tasted blank somehow.

Had to stop in Kiev before travelling further south on business. Reception was quick an efficient and the room welcome after a long journey. Breakfast next morning was good but the staff whilst not rude we're not interested. I am sure that the hotel would be suitable for an extended stay as the metro was straight outside. But due to work commitments and the snow could not check that out. Would stay again.

I have spent two nights in this hotel. I do not have any complains. Room was not to big, rather small for this class. It was nice furnished (maybe a little tired, but still ok) and Very clean. Bed is ok, with four excellent, very soft pillows, so any position is possible. Towels new, in good condition.
Breakfast was ok, but nothing special. I am used (in CIS countries), that there is possible to order some omlet, or scrambled eggs with ham and cheese,...but Riviera do not have that. Was ok, but could be a bit better.
Neiborhoud of hotel is not fancy. There is 10-15 minutes walk to centre, up to the hill. There are many restorants. Some guest have mentioned that he had dinner in the hotel restaurant and was delicious ...I did not try this option.
You will not be disapointed with this hotel, but it is nothing special.

I spent three nights in this hotel and, apart from the position which is quite convenient, I must say I'm not so satisfied. at my arrival I poured water in the bathtub and some hair from previous customer was floating in the water! the temperature in the room is very low and the heating turns off when you leavr the room, so at your return it takes 5-10 minutes to have a decent temperature, in the bathroom is always colder than I wish (and I hate hot hotel rooms). breakfast is ok but staff is quite lazy and not ready to serve and help you. Same for reception: I asked for a harder pillow and they brought me a crappy unuseful wool cushion. I will not stay here again even if location is nice.
