“Friendly staff, clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

This hotel seems to be a good choice. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the room was large and clean. Strangely, there's very little storage space apart from the cupboard (no shelves in the bathroom etc) but that's the only negative. They provided a large baby cot free of charge and lots of free water and the free wifi was excellent. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but had drinks in the courtyard one evening, which was very pleasant.

Room Tip: The executive rooks spacious and had more than enough room to fit a baby cot

Nice and clean. Location quite good...a little bit away from centre though. But walking distance from most historical sites. Only downside is over priced and poor quality breakfasts at nearly eur20! Staff friendly

although I am not sure what are the alternatives... this one offers definitely a disastrous value for money if you are a simple, western business traveller, but again - this is a part of travelling experiencing in this part of the world.
I read that some of the visitors appreciated wine in the hotel's restaurant. Personally, I was served some vinegar. (But I have to acknowledge the attending personnel was eager to change it for something slightly better).
And poor you, should you happen to get for neighbours next door a couple on a honey moon ! I don't think the constructors of the hotel thought about the phonic isolation...

I remember my first trip to Kiev, back in 2010. The taxi driver stopped near an abandoned building and I refused to get down, although he was shouting at me: "Podol Plaza, madam!" Finally, I got out and I saw the hotel, immediately after the abandoned warehouse, which was not looking bad. The first room I received had 2 bugs in the bathroom, which I merciless killed, and I asked for another one. The second room was nice, clean ad had a balcony overlooking the street. Breakfast was strange, after the little food displayed exhausted, nobody replenished the trays!!! After asking for food, they brought little quantities, but offered to me fried eggs...
The surroundings are "famous", "romantic" according to the tourist guide. Don't trust it!!! It's shabby, but not chic area, with old and ruined buildings needing immediate renovation for the sake of the people passing by, with abandoned facilities, with bad streets and an old tram rattling on the trails. The good part is that the street has a lot of restaurants and some indecently expensive shops.

Room Tip: If you have to choose between Podol Plaza and Senator Apartments, choose Podol. You will not regret.

this hotel was centrally located...the rooms were in need of a little TLC, but clean and comfortable.
We thought that the buffet breakfast was decent, and the the staff,(even with the language difference) was helpful.if you were to use the airport transfer service, MAKE SURE of a CURRENT price before you book it with the hotel.
