“More than I would have expected”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The hotel and staff were all that I needed for a brief stay, but the most impressive thing went beyond that. I only had a brief stay in Kyiv, this time, and had a tour organised for the day. I did not know it but the guide had been recommended by the hotel. When she arrived late for the tour I was given, at no cost, a meal to help fill in the time until she arrived and the use of the room that I had already check out of. I would not have expected it anything but was grateful to take up unasked for offer. It was an example of great customer service that other hotels could learn from.

A great experience.
Because we wanted to visit Kiev, we opted for an accommodation near the city center. We had seen the recommendations and it's exactly right. Great people, perfect room, good service, very helpful, free transport to the metro-station, breakfast is included, dinner is possible........ So: during our next visit to Kievwe will stay definitely in Oselya.

I give the Oselya hotel in downtown Kiev, Ukraine a strong recommendation. It's a quiet and romantic place to take an old love or to build a new love. Located close to the Zhulyany airport this hotel might be a great place to stay before or after a domestic flight within Ukraine that used this convenient in town airport.

The grass in the garden was still a deep green in early November, with Koi swimming in the fishpond. It's a truly lovely garden even in late autumn. I'd love to come back when the roses are blooming.

Breakfast is included in the price and the staff can supply lunch or dinner (with your choice of Ukrainian food) if you would like that.

The hotel is absolutely lovely and almost brand new on the inside. From the outside however it looks like just another boring house. The address is clearly marked on the hotel, but the sign that says Oselya is very small and you won't see it until you walk up to the door and ring the bell.

I'd definitely love to stay here again!

Room Tip: The room called "Myth of the Sun" has windows on two sides, great light and on the days we...

Thank you very much for your sweet review. We were very happy to welcome you and your fiancé in our hotel. I’m not sure you have visited lakes near the hotel. This is also very nice walking area. I hope you will explore next time. BR, Oksana

I stayed at Oselya twice and the service was excellent. The staff even printed my boarding passes for my next destinations and drove me to the airport for my very early morning flight. I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and I was very pleased with the accommodations and the attention to detail.

Friendly staff, excellent breakfast spread with a variety of choices, homemade and organic too. You can have your breakfast in their wonderful garden but it was raining most of the time we were there so I could t take any photos.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony view so you can over look the garden at night

Stayed here twice in the past month and both times had excellent rooms.
First time I stayed I arrived late and hadn't eaten, the kitchen was closed but the staff opened and cooked a feast of different local dishes.
Would recommend this hotel, the staff were friendly and spoke good English.

This family run small hotel/B&B has a beautiful garden in which they serve breakfast. The staff are all friendly, helpful, and speak excellent English. The downside is that the hotel is a bit remote from the city centre, but they are quite accommodating to drive you to/from the metro station at no charge. (Remember to get their mobile number so you can text when you're returning.) The owners live adjacent to the hotel. There is no restaurant but the breakfast is superb. The best way to get there from the airport is to take the airport bus to the first stop, then take the metro to Vasylkivsk. They'll collect you from there, it's about 2km away.
