Facility was very clean, nice court yard when the weather is good, great service from desk attendents, great morning breakfast, was helped in everyway I requested assist, local cell phone provision, summoning taxi service, great advice on entertainments, museums, and places to eat. Is a small establishment 20 minute from city center but away from the crowds. Provides fair prices with airport shuttle service. Help is proficient, or rather, sufficient in speaking English; was a great help.

This is not a large hotel--seven rooms. And it is distant from Kiev's city center. But I rate as one of finest lodgings I've encountered anywhere. Each room is uniquely and well decorated and as clean and comfortable as you could want. The neighborhood is quiet and with some unusual touches. I looked out my window and saw free range chickens doing their chicken-thing in the adjoining yard. How often do you see that from a Sheraton or Marriot? Breakfast is included in the price:: three choices served in a fine garden with a small waterfall. The isolation from the city center is a minor problem for sightseeing and restauranting . Pickup and letoff from and to the airport are easily arranged. As is transportation to the train station or nearest subway station. Just ask at the desk. Give them a call and they will pick you up from the subway. The staff is gracious and bends over backwards to accommodate your requests. It is isolated to be sure, but those who want serenity and great sleeping--this is for you.

Room Tip: If you want a little more space and a view of the chickens get the mini-suite. (The chickens crow ve...

Dear Charles, thank you very much for mentioning our chickens. Recently I was asked why we offer so many dishes with eggs for breakfast. It is because our chickens are very productive ) I like you enjoyed your time in Oselya and hope you will become our regular guest ) Oksana

perfect organization and moreover they take care of your time, even if you think living in the centre would be better, try to rest easy at Oselya!!
I shouldn't write so good, because I'm afraid i couldn't find free rooms at Olesya the next time i'll go to Kiev....
....however....... I cannot say differently ......

I spent a long weekend in Kiev and chose to book the Oselya based on Tripadvisor rating and reviews. Very good choice for the budget aware traveler, as central hotels can be very expensive.
Owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and always accessible and responsive (emails/phone). Complimentary transfers from/to nearest metro station were very useful and always available when I needed them (though they are not guarantied). Most Kiev attractions (and there are many!) are easily and quickly accessible by the very cheap and effective metro service.
My room was spacious and clean with a very nice bathroom. Breakfast in the garden was nice, when weather permitted.
The nearby Kazachok restaurant is a little bit expensive but very very good if you want to try the local cuisine. Ask the reception to book your table, and you'll get a 10% discount!

Dear Yaron, thank you very much for your review. You paid us a big compliment as we provide our car to and from metro station only for pre-arranged transfers. I’m glad we managed to make our car available for you every time. But us usual we are not so perfect )

The staff at the Oselya are fantastic. I can't say enough about how helpful they were. There English is excellent and they did everything they could to make our stay wonderful. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. My only issue was the distance to the center of town. The staff at the hotel took us to the subway and brought us back for free, which really make a difference. The subway system in Kiev is also quite fun to ride. It's very fast. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Kiev.

Room Tip: The pick up service from the airport was wonderful and fairly priced. Have breakfast outside, it'...

From the moment I booked Olexander and Oksana could not have been more helpful, from arranging the transfer from the hotel to offering to take me and my son to the football - with him. Fantastic hosts, thank you never seems quite enough. The hotel staff were excellent, freindly, helpful and above all excellent English! The garden was a really nice place to eat breakfast, which was plentiful, or to unwind with a beer after a long day sightseeing. Some reviews say it is too far from the centre, maybe it is, but the number 17 bus from the bottom of the hill and the metro get you into the centre in no time at all and was all part of the adventure (and for less than 5 UAH!). As for Kiev, we came for the football despite all of the bad English press stories to find a wonderful, welcoming city, plenty to see, plenty to do. Well worth the visit.

Room Tip: The room in the sky (?) had no window blinds, and it gets light very early, but by the second night...
