Good location, a few oddities.Posted Sep 9, 2013
Cons: Simpler wifi connectivity, No water issues.
Location: Near all major Kiev attractions (St. Sophia cathedral etc.).
Nice location near the downtown area and all major tourist attractions in Kiev. On the top of a big hill from the nearest metro station so not advisable for the weak of heart! A few oddities during the stay - no hot water one morning (although they had a water outage the next day to presumably fix something), breakfast a bit odd by western standards (but OK), and wifi system that needed special sign in codes that were a hassle. Generally a clean place and decent value for the money.

Value for moneyPosted Apr 26, 2013
Great location - close to the Church & the town square & lots of restaurants - ideal for tourists who wish to walk around this beautiful city. It is a small hotel - decent and clean. The free internet has a speed good enough for moderate browsing. Limited options for breakfast (served in the bar) but the quality is good. The staff spoke good English and were ready to help with a smile. Be prepared to carry your luggage down a flight of steps as you enter the hotel. Rooms are a bit small and the shower may not be comfortable for moderately fat guests. Overall, it was a good deal for the tariff paid.

Very nice HotelPosted Jun 3, 2012
Cons: The room was a bit small for me, but I like bigger hotel rooms
Location: In the center of the city so very good for traveling. It is located at the top of a hill so be prepared for an incline!
Before I went there I heard some bad review but decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did - I found the hotel to always be clean and the staff very friendly as well.

Would stay there again.Posted Apr 22, 2010
I chose Gintama after reading favourable reviews on some other sites and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and spoke reasonably good English. The room was very clean and the location excellent, albeit a bit of a climb up the hill from Independence Square. Most importantly I felt safe staying at the hotel and getting lost in the surrounding neighbourhoods (by day). It's in a quiet location opposite a park where you can buy a beer and sit with the locals on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Perhaps 10 minutes walk from Independence Square and 5 minutes from Kreshchatik St. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend Gintama to anyone staying in Kiev for business or a holiday.
