Our fifth visit to Kiev, but the very first time we stayed in a hotel. We were honestly and positively surprised as the Cityhotel was much better in real that what we saw on the Internet. Even the standard double room in which we stayed was quite comfortable, super clean and had every single detail one could wish for. I am puzzled why this hotel is rated with only 4*. And if you read some of my other reviews, you will see that I rarely waste compliments. The food selection for breakfast was average, but everything tasted great. The gym is rather small, but covers the basics. I know for sure that the next time we are around, we will definitely consider booking this hotel.
The minor issues which did bother us, but didn't spoil the overall impression are:
1. Bathroom was a designated smoking area, although we had a non-smoking room. How silly is that!? But I guess smokers have their way of appreciating such things in case of crisis.
2. There is a single terrace connecting many rooms without even a psychological barrier. This deprives you from privacy to a certain extent, since anybody can "drop by" if you forget to close the door, or they can peek into your room if you don't pull the curtains together.
Tips to the management: invest a few grivnas and install some panels on the terraces to provide a complete privacy to your guests. And by all means fire the male receptionists.
