Best Possible Location
We rented the 1-bedroom apartment on Desyatinnaya Street through the Kiev Apartment Hotel Service (AHS) and the location for us couldn't have been better. It's unique from most tourist rental apartments which tend to be located right on Maidan Nezalezhnosti; this place is near the border of Central Kyiv and Podil, and you have convenient access to both areas by walking or taking the funicular railway which is a 2-minute walk away. Maidan Nezalezhnosti is a 10-15 minute walk down a pretty steep incline so if you're tired or if it's really icy, taking the metro then the funicular back up is a nice option. St. Sophia's Cathedral and St. Michael's Monastery are within 5 minutes walking and you can hear the beautiful bells chiming in the apartment. There are also restaurants, grocery stores, bank machines, kiosks and romantic strolls through the park all within walking distance.
One of our favorite features was the balcony. Even in winter we liked spending time out there listening to the church bells and looking out over the gold domes and Intercontinental Hotel courtyard. The apartment building felt very safe, although the outside security door was often propped or left open and we did have some random knocks at the door from people. There was always hot water and being able to do laundry was very convenient. The linens and furniture and stuff are not fancy or anything but it's clean, comfortable and a great value.
Unique Quality: This apartment has the most important thing... a great location from which to explore some of the most interesting areas and attractions in Kiev!
Directions: Desyatinnaya Street, behind the Intercontinental Hotel

Stay was wonderful. I would stay here again.
I recommend choosing a self-catering apartment over a hotel because of the much greater value for money spent.
For about 50 to 60% of the price of a hotel room, you can have a big, European remodeled apartment closer to the center.
Location was close to the main street.
Near government and business offices.
Many restaraunts, pubs, and shopping within 5 to 10 minutes walking.
On Saturday and Sunday the main street is closed to vehicles. It becomes a massive pedestrian street.
There were many events with live fountains, music, and dancing.
The parks on the hills behind have a beautiful view over the Dnepr River.
Also there is a romantic park near call Marinsky
