This hotel is not in Lviv proper, but in a suburb called Vinniki. It is a 20-minute ride by public transportation from the train station. The area was very beautiful with the changing leaves of autumn.
We stayed four nights in a standard twin room as part of a conference. The room was small, but not claustrophobic. The beds were comfortable and the linens in good condition. Extra wool blankets were available in the wardrobe--which were welcome as the heat came on in our room only the last night of our stay. There was a fairly large TV and a small refrigerator in our room, as well as an electric tea kettle and complimentary mineral water. Very nice touches.
The bathroom which had a shower, but no tub, was very clean--with a heated towel rack. The maid service was very good, with fluffy towels provided every day.
WiFi worked, but was rather slow in our room.
Breakfast during the conference was served buffet style with fried eggs, sausages, cheese, cold cuts, bread, juice and hot cereals. Everything seemed quite fresh. After the conference, breakfast was individually prepared from a choice of two set menu meals; one with fried eggs, the other with excellent cheese-filled blini.
The hotel is attached to a sort of spa/recreation complex with three separate options including sauna and pool, Russian banya, steam room and Jacuzzi. Although we didn't use these facilities, we inspected them and found them to be in very good condition. Our colleagues did happily use the facilities. They must be reserved in advance. Detailed information is on the hotel's website.
Also attached to this hotel is a discotheque with an additional separate entrance. It is open Thursday through Sunday nights. Without industrial-strength ear plugs, don't even think about sleeping. In our room, the walls literally vibrated into the wee hours of the morning. This was our only very serious complaint about this hotel.
