I went to Kiev for a business trip, and for a not so high budget, this was the most central solution. Let's face the fact that the hotel is quite old and needs a renovation, mainly a style renovation. After the initial shock I've to say that the rooms are quite clean, the bathroom is modern, the tv works perfectly and the heating system does its job. The breakfast are quite abundant and the quality is acceptable. The room service works, I also ordered a taxi one day before leaving the hotel, taxi ordered for 03:30 of the night, and they did it and the taxi was ontime. So the main 2 problems of this hotel are: 1) the style. 2) the staff attitude: it needs to be more friendly and polite. Definitely. At the checkout at night I wanted to pay the bill in euro, but they tricked me and told me that I had to change my euro to hryvnas. Even though I speak perfectly russian, I wasn't able to convince them to take my euro, so I had to change my money to the other hotel's counter, thus paying them the commission on the change... Anyway the hotel is an average-good money value. If I had a small budget to come back to Kiev I'd PROBABLY stay in this hotel once more.
