“Unnecessary bureaucracy but still good”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

The hotel has a good relaxed feel with friendly service, though checking in can be slow and tedious, as seems to be typical in Ukraine. Some reviewers have said that it is good for football fans, that was the reason for my visit, so in one sense it was ideally located. The weather during my brief trip was awful which regrettably prevented much further exploration of the Donetsk area. I feel that Ukraine is on its way up as a tourist destination so I hope to back to see more when the weather is better.

Brand new 2012 luxurious 4 star hotel. Ideal for football fans across the road from stadium. Small but nice rooms. Out of town and although taxis are inexpensive at times they are hard to find.

I have rated poor because breakfast was very disappointing one day. It is served from 7-11 but at 10 on a busy morning nothing was left - no glasses, cutlery, juice or food and little being done to fix it by the army of staff.

More importantly on our second night someone entered our room at 3 in the morning. I called reception and was advised that the maid had entered the wrong room in error as she needed to make a room up. Yeah - right ! Shouldn't have to put a chair against the door in a hotel of this quality.

Shakhtar Plaza is located across Donbass Arena. The location would fit better to business travellers and football tourists. You need to walk 15-20 minutes to the city center for eating and drinking. The way to the city is quite dark and isolated. You dont feel 100% safe on the way. And I can imagine how cold it can be in the winter.

I've stayed in one of the executive suites and it was great. It was very comfortable besides the toilet. It should be larger. The internet works very well.

I would stay there again when I visit for business.

Just in the front of the Shakhtar stadium. Hotel is New and rooms are nice.
Receptionist are very helpful and professional.
Breakfast selection could be wider.
I've found in internet an unbeatable offer.
While arriving I got my room upgraded.
Just perfect.
I will stay there again.

The rooms were clean and a good size, we were close to the trolley bus, the food and service at the bar was excellent. The only real problem we had was communicating with some staff but that only added to the experience. We look forward to visiting Ukraine again.

I stayed here for nearly 3 weeks in May/June.
Carlsberg £2.00 a pint, very good for a very good standard of Hotel.
Laundry is expensive so if you are travelling try to pack as much as possible.
Ate in the hotel most nights and food is reasonably cheap depending on what you pick, food quality was excellent especially the Beef Stroganoff. Breakfast choice is very good also.
This Hotel is an excellent standard of accommodation as room was 850hryvnya or grivna, that is about £68 B&B. Room is a bit small but perfectly clean and good WIFI Connection that is free.
Many large corridors with plenty of seating and a nice garden and outdoor eating area.
I did find it very difficult to control the room temperature so during the night woke up a few times feeling cold.

Room Tip: If you can afford it ask for a Business Suite on the 11th Floor rooms are bigger and not that much m...
