    Comfortable apartment hotel

    by

    I was a little nervous about staying here after reading a review on Trip Advisor saying it was in a ghetto, but after staying there I can assure you it's not in a ghetto but rather it is in a residential neighborhood within walking distance of the Lavra. Not once did I feel uncomfortable going back to our apartment.

    We had reserved the $90 1 room apartment which wasn't available so were upgraded for no fee to the incredibly spacious nicely decorated 2 bedroom apartment with separate living room and kitchen, back in the communist days it probably housed about 10-15 people! The room was comfortable, there was a full kitchen with refrigerator and stove (plus a minibar) and table. We had a tub and a shower, there was hot water after running the tap for about 3 minutes. The only drawback was that it was on the 5th floor and there is no elevator.

    When we came back through Kiev for 1 night, we reserved the $125 1 room apartment which is a studio apartment with the kitchen and the bedroom combined. There was just a shower in this apartment. It was on the 1st floor so no stairs for this apartment. Both apartments were very quiet.

    The transfer from the airport was expensive but well worth it after a long flight. The location is off the street and not marked at all (you go through an alley to get to your apartment) so it would be hard to find if you didn't know where you were going. The Arsenala metro station is a 5-10 minute walk, the Lavra was a 10-15 minute walk and there is a full grocery store about 2 minutes away. We got a whole cooked chicken and some other stuff and ate in our apartment a couple of nights, they also had other prepared foods that they could microwave for you.

    The staff couldn't have been nicer, our apartment was cleaned every night with fresh towels, the staff was available 24 hours a day and was just downstairs from our apt. I would highly recommend if you are looking for an affordable option and are willing to stay a little out of the center.

    I stayed in a fine suite that was arranged by Sherborne Guest House. My suite was just around the corner from the famous Khreschatyk Street and Independence Square (5 minute walk). 24 hours a day, Sherborne Guest House has an English-speaking person at their telephone to take care of any troubles, to arrange tours, etc, or to answer questions. It was like a lifeline to me. The day before I departed Kiev (after eleven nights), they phoned me to confirm my total bill for my stay. There was no problem. When I returned to Canada, they sent me an email expressing their hope that I had enjoyed my stay with them. I assured them that everything had been just fine.

    Unique Quality: They are very helpful, and they arranged a 3 hour tour of Kiev with an English-speaking assistant Professor of Tourism and a taxi with driver for $96 US. Next day, we called the taxi driver to take us to the outskirts of Kiev to visit a shopping centre. The driver lent us a cell phone while we shopped, and he called later to say that he would be 2 minutes later arriving back at the appointed time. That's service. The taxi cost $15 US total. Taxis are inexpensive in Kiev.

transport airport centre of town and other

by patopato44

Hi! Could anyone help me with the following subjects, please?
1- reliable and not too expensive taxis from airport to town
2- buses that run along places of tourist interest in Kiev for a first approximation or where I could find a description of bus line courses on a map
3- recommend a place where we could have a really yammy kiivskii tort
Thanks in advance!

Kyivskyy tort you can buy anywhere, just make sure it's made by Roshen.
There is no such thing in Kyiv as a sightseeing bus. It's better to chose where you need go and then decide how to get there. The central part you can see on foot.

The link that Pikine has given you is a better choice of taxi.If you book in advance you know how much you need to pay.
When you arrive at the airport (assuming its Borispil) you could be besieged by taxi drivers wanting your custom but be careful because they could quote high prices and if you want to take their offer then so be it.

The alternative is to get the bus from the airport to the train station and then get a short bus/taxi to the centre.
We have done this in the past and it is usually cheaper than the taxi from airport

Re: transport airport centre of town and other, also Kiyvsky tort

by patopato44

Thank you ,Pikine!
I have just found on this same forum a note about a Guided Tour of the City
commented by hunterV on January 2, 2010. According to the picture it is not an open double decked bus but apparently it has the same function. Starting from the railway station and taking about 2 hours on the whole. I think it is a good alternative for the first day if it still exists. And about the tort, is it true it has to be eaten within 2 or 3 days? Will it become uneatable in two weeks time if I take some for my family?
Bye,

Thanks, Taurean traveller!
I also thought about the combination bus + taxi.
I still need a map with bus, tram and trolleybus lines

Well, the bus that you mentioned is really an option for people who have just a couple of hours to see Kyiv. Since you're going to be here for a few days, don't bother. Alternatively, sightseeing buses in London are interesting even for people who have been there a few times. But the bus in Kyiv is a totally different thing.

Travel Tips for Kiev

Communication

by Lensa

The Kyiv Central Post Office is at 22 Khreschatyk Str. and works from 8 am til 9pm Monday through Saturday and from 9am till 7pm on Sunday. Here you can find stamps, post cards, use fax-machines, send emails(use internet), letters or packages, and make international calls.
For calles around Kyiv or Ukraine you can use public telephones located all over the city. Usually they are blue color, and you will need a phone card which you can buy at any post office or press kiosks.
There are also coin phones, usually inside the metro, but there are not very many of them around Kyiv.
