Clean modern hotel with very good service. Rooms are a little small but still comfortable. Would stay there again. Is in good location, centrally located with nice shopping within walking distance. We will stay there on our next trip to Kiev.

The outside soviet exterior can be a bug deceptive... nice reno of the rooms, very contemporaty in sttyle and comfort. There have been big improvements here in the last couple years. Bar service can be a big slow but its a pleasant large business hotel.

As I write this I am mid way through an eight night stay at the President, my third since December 2013. The property is large, rooms are a decent size, beds a large and comfy and the bathrooms spacious.

The food is decent bordering on very good (I've worked my way through a lot of the menu) and breakfast is decent. The food prices are reasonable for a hotel as well which is nice.

The staff are great, everyone has a good standard of English (well everyone I have spoken to at least). The Sauna is good (I am off down there to relax as soon as I hit 'submit' on this review).

On the downsides... yes the place is a little dated but if you want the Four Seasons then you will be paying a lot more than the costs of the President.

Oddly there is no iron and ironing board in the room, instead you take your items to an ironing room on the 10th floor, this is a little inconvenient but not the end of the world.

Finally...and if you've stayed in certain other places in Kiev this may resonate with you, the bar is enjoyably free of Prostitutes. Whilst I am no prude it really can be a pain when on business to have to avoid the more predatory sex workers by avoiding the Hotel bar(s).

This is not an issue at the President...so if you want a little something-something after a day of business meetings you won't get it here and the rest of us can enjoy the facilities unmolested (forgive the pun).

Spent two nights in mid Winter during the Maidan demonstrations. The hotel was a bastion of warmth, tranquility and comfort. The rooms and especially the bathrooms are high standard in their finish and their efficient spacious simplicity. The food is quality is good, a little light on fruit selection. The staff are helpful and professional. The Gym is a big disappointment, with outdated equipment and a poor selection of machines. The gym attendant refused steadfastly to put on the airconditioner, making it very difficult to do a proper workout. The location is excellent, very close to shopping and sports facilities. Two minute walk to the nearest metro station.

Very nice and clean hotel. Kitchen 24/7 with awesome food (salmon steak with rice and spinachy). Not comparable with Hotel RUS, dont go there ! :)
Breakfast is average, but outstanding. Hotel is situated 15min walk from city center on a small hill.

The positives are that the rooms are large, clean and equipped with a modern bathroom (bath and power shower). There is a minibar fridge and safe in each room so you can stock up from the local supermarket. The TV selection is average with about 15 international channels and 15 local (BBC News and Euronews the only English channels). However, the WiFi is terrible on any floor above 5 (I've stayed here for 3 weeks over the last few months and it is a pain). In the bar area the WiFi is acceptable (Skype just about but no streaming) but it is still prone to dropping out. The bar is in the lobby, it is spacious with a good selection of bar food that is sometimes slow to come but good when it does. Breakfast is varied and good quality although ensure you get it in your room rate deal if possible as it is about 180UAH (£14) and can start getting expensive over time. The gym has a treadmill and a stepper plus a weights areas and can get a big muscle bound with locals at times. I didn't try the pool but it looks nice. Overall, the staff are friendly and happy to help.

The shops and main street are a stones throw away (10-15 mins walk) and the new Gulliver centre (6 floors or more) has just opened with high end retailers present and is 5 mins away. There is also a large supermarket in the basement of the G Centre or there is a small (traditional) one at the bottom of the hill outside the hotel. Check-out can get manic around midday with no apparent queueing system so try to pay early and drop your card on departure. (Be warned that at night that their are one or two ladies who hang around but they don't hassle you and the security regulate their numbers)

Room Tip: Low floors for WiFi and away from central lift as these can get noisy with customers in corridors ta...
