“Good experience.”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Last April i stayed by luck to this hotel,we were desperately searching for hotel in the centre of Kiev but we couldnt find something in reasonable price,so our taxi driver brings us there,it is not far from the centre of Kiev-5 minutes-if i remember good,from the first view of this building i didnt believe that it is hotel-looks like control tower in airport-.After so many rounds in Kiev we didnt have a lot or requirements from a hotel,just to be clean and with reasonable price.
The room that we stayed was very good,in good condition,satelite tv,mini bar,bathroom ok.Salute hotel is not in the centre and you will need propably to take metro,the closer metro station is Arsenal station about 300 metres from the hotel..Near hotel in a very small distance there are very important monuments as it is Pechersk Lavra and the monument of second world war.I dont know if i visit again Kiev i will stay again in Salute,but generally was good experience.

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.

This hotel, also called the granade due to it granade like shape, is located not far away from the Ukrainian parliament. The city center is in 20 min walking distance from the city center.
The whole ambient including the rooms recall the vintage soviet chic of many years ago. I guess since then it had never been redone. To make it short, the bathroom is horrible. ... our room was clean and was even equipped with an efficiently working modern airco. All in all acceptable.
There is a mini bar which apart from the usual drink stuff even holds condoms in the standard assortment. The TV set looks like it has been inherited from the old soviet times.
There are two elevator lines to serve the upper floor levels. In line with the rest of the hotel also the elevators have definitely seen Breschnew's period.
The breakfast is buffet served in a vintage restaurant hall and outright horrendous and awful. The only highlight is the Lavazza coffee. Unfortunately the service level of the staff is 0. I guess nothing has ever changed since the communist times. ... Forget it!
On the contrary there is a nice and modern cafe attached to the hotel serving delicacies and freshly made oj. This is a valid alternative to the awful hotel breakfast.
Next to the breakfast room is a night club strip bar. Later in the night you can run into the ladies when they have a rest in front of the main entrance ...

We would not come here again, however apart from the ambience, the breakfast and the bathroom, we had a good time.

This hotel is in the style of Soviet futurism in the eighties. It is colloquially known as The Grenade. While the architecture may (or in our case: may not) appeal to you, the reason not to stay here is the noise from the traffic and people outside. The hotel is located on a main access road, which remains busy into the early hours of the night. Noise insulation is absolutely not adequate.

First of all I should notice great location, reasonable price (for Kiev) and friendly stuff. I have got room for ~70 EUR (breakfast not included) on first floor. It has no nice view wasn't equipped so good like rooms on official photos but clean.
Returned to the hotel about midnight and noticed that "Night bar" on the second floor is still open. Decided to have my last 50g. of local Horilka... And was surprised - nice Ukrainian girls wearing only strings and some T-shirts... strip club open, entrance 100UAH (~10 EUR).
I haven't checked what is behind club door, but have had nice talk with one of the girls. Great evening :)
Next morning breakfast was served in the same room in front of club door... they charge for breakfast additional 120UAH... little bit more than for strip...

This hotel is very unusual
Unsual because of the design, very soviet style and also because the rooms doesn't match the lobby
Last time i stayed there i get a room on the 7 floor with view on the dniepr and it was great
Breakfast is not their best point but they always try to help you
If you want to change your mind you can go to the club in the hotel
The area is not the best for shopping but there is a nice park in front of the hotel and if you want to face the ukrainian life and exchange words it's the place
