For the tourist, Hotel Kharkiv has the best location, right on the main square. But it is pricey, and the staff fairly cold.
Hotel Kyivsky is located less than ten minutes from the main square, and has a friendly staff and great prices. The rooms are nice enough, and a much better deal. Breakfast is pretty good, for "superior" rooms. The gymnasium is fictional, however. All in all, this is the best place in town for the casual tourist.
The service is relatively friendly from the front reception and the doormen, especially for Ukrainian hotels. The standard breakfast is quite good, and the breakfast staff friendly. Rooms are fairly nice by Ukr standards. Superior single is about $100-115/night
Unique Quality: Despite their brochure, there is no training room/gym. No pool. There is standard massage available for $10-20/hour, which is a great price, right?!! The location is still pretty good, as the walk to the square is a nice one.
