Comfortable, clean, convenient, friendly and helpful staff, affordable. This is a great place to stay in Kiev, close to the metro and city center. The elevator helps with the fact that it's on the 6th floor.

“We stayed in a double room with twin beds. The room is small, but the beds are very comfortable and spacious. Of the minuses only poor soundproofing. The rooms are all equally comfortable, but it is better to choose a single or double room.”
