Spent five days here on business, and have to say the rooms are among the nicest I've come across in Europe. If you are heading to this city, you are presumably on a business trip (this is NOT a tourist destination), but it has its own charms. My room overlooked a collection of quaint village homes; in the fall, it was actually very pretty. The hotel's frontage is a pleasant, tree-lined boulevard.
The only complaint (not by me but by my colleagues) is that the restaurant is very slow in serving food. But if you're in no hurry, it's a very nice place to take you're time over a pleasant Ukrainian dinner. Borscht in a bowl made entirely out of dark bread was one of my favourites.
Weirdly, breakfast needs to be ordered the night before on a special form. I guess this is a retro/Soviet touch for older visitors.
Nice billiards tables, a small pool/sauna are added attractions, but note that you need to book the pool/sauna in advance at added cost, so it's intended more for groups of visitors. (Think 'Team Building).' Grocery stores and banks are a short walk away.
The city itself while large is actually extremely long (Taxi driver advised my that it is the longest city in the world, and I'll take his word for it). So you are always a very large drive away from much of the city.
