The Shakhtar Plaza advertises as a four star property. I would agree with that but it really a matter of simple arithmetic...five star public areas and service added to three star rooms and the average is four. The positives; excellent restaurant, lobby bar, gym, pool, sauna and service in all those areas. The negatives; the room. It was OK but poorly laid out and a small bed, miniscule television, miniscule and uncomfortable bathroom, very small shower. Nothing that was totally bad. Just not what I expected.
I've stayed at three properties in Donetsk, the Donbass Palace, the Victoria Hotel and now Shakhtar Plaza. They all have their pluses and minuses.
So, as I say, it depends on what is important to you. If you spend a very minimal amount of time in the room and take a quick shower, but like a good restaurant, bar and other amenities, then this is the ticket. For me, I will probably go back to the Victoria next time I am in Donetsk.
