Reviewed 5 September 2011

Location is good.Close to metro station.Wireless internet is everywhere and free.Free and safe parking for car.Walls between rooms are very thin so you hear everything what they talk and what they do next room.Bathroom is old fashined and very simple.Breakfast was very poor.I Stayed 4 days and everyday tea and coffee was cold.Security waiting outside look at you strangely all the time you want to enter the hotel, like you want to steal something.

Room Tip: Try to get a room next to free rooms as you hear eveything what happens next door including how they...

Podol is clearly the place to be in Kyiv (during summers that is). The Podol Plaza is a nice hotel with most rooms facing a calm courtyard. Rooms on 4th and 5th floor are elegantly decorated and spacious. Free Wi-Fi (working). Friendly staff. The nearby Kontraktova square is a hangout for punks and the like and dimly lit at nights. Metro station is just a few steps away so are shops, a 24h supermarket (gigantic choice) and other stuff.

I have been staying for 10 days in this hotel for business purpose. It is very clean and well maintained, staff is helpful and overall friendly, even if the service is not totally up to international standards.
The price is affordable, around £100 / night including breakfast and taxes.
The rooms are nice and very clean, but dont expect the top end in terms of design and comfort.
The curtains are too short so that light is always coming through during the night.

Spent two days while being for business purposes in Kiev. The room was certainly clean, good wifi access, slept as a rose. Three remarks though: breakfast room is a bit cramped and certainly not large enough for the nr of rooms in the hotel if the (pleasant) terrace cannot be used e.g. If raining. So a bit cramped and don't accept privacy as all seats must be used. The breakfast itself was ok. Secondly, try to have a room in the back of the hotel: my colleague slept in a front room and complained a bit of the street noise at night. Thirdly, the hotel is not that cheap, if you come to visit the city as tourist (which you should do, it is a hidden treasure) than there are b&bs in the city centre which are half as expensive and give plenty enough to have a good time. Yet again, Podol Plaza is a fine place to stay.

The Podol Plaza is very nice, boutique like hotel.
The staff was very friendly and helpfull. I got twin room, nice, clean with everythig needed. I came for one night only and did not use too much the hotels facilities. The restaurant looked very cosy and pleasant , though.
The only problem I found is the location - Podol is old part of Kiev and not very nice. I could not find decsent place to have some light dinner, out on the street. as the wheather was very nice. Only those typical cafe's where the food is very simple and bad.
Besides this issue - the Podol Plaza is recommended!

Definitely one of my favorite hotels in this city. Large and comfortable rooms, friendly staff, near a subway stop, walking distance to some old historical churches and neighborhoods. A little bit outside of the city center, but walkable or only 2 subway stops away from the central heart of Kyiv. Highly recommended.

Spent the long Easter weekend with my partner at the Podol Plaza Hotel. We had a wonderful time. Our room was perfect featuring brand new furniture; it was a good size and beds were high quality. The bathroom is well appointed and, everything in this hotel is spic and span. Breakfast is served in a beautiful dining room and has all the things one likes. Service is excellent. The hotel is located just 2 minutes from an underground station, from which you can take an easy ride to Independance Square. It is a quiet location and, yet all places of interest are within easy reach. Free Wifi! Would definitely stay at Podol Plaza Hotel again.
