Hotel should be torn down!

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Nothing except that it is located right new Victory Square and the circus.
Cons: Everything! Bed! Decor! Air conditioning!
Location: Too far from the centre for most tourists and inconveniently located between two metro stops.
I have stayed at the Lybid before, and I have vowed to never do it again. The weather is very hot here in Kyiv right now, and, when I arrived into the lobby at the hotel, I knew that the air conditioning that was advertised on Expedia was going to be crap. There was no air conditioning in the lobby, and it says a lot. When I got into the room, I turned on the air conditioner, and it was utterly useless. I could not get a good night's sleep. Any European and especially North American tourist will be terribly disappointed. The rooms are very tired looking, and the bed is terrible. With a brand new IBIS just about a five minute walk down the street, I cannot imagine why anyone would want to stay here -- unless you want a tired looking room that has air conditioning that simply does not keep the room cool enough on a hot summer day.

Overnight stay

Posted May 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
I chose this hotel because it was relatively close to the main railway station which was a meeting point for a tour group I was with. The price for the room was great, the room itself was of a decent size although I tend to wonder about the cleanliness of the room for other reasons. The staff was great although when I went to check-out they were insisting that I use the taxi service they had available even though I had the phone number for another taxi service who was offering a cheaper fare. They did agree to match the fare of the other taxi company, however I don't think the taxi driver was too impressed and there was definitely some attitude from that. It would have been better to go with the other taxi service just for that reason alone. Outside of that I had an overall good stay at the hotel,

My Stay at Lyvid

Pros: The location and the price
Cons: I would like a larger bed as I am tall but the bed is OK
Location: Location is convenient for the business I am there for
I have be coming to Kiev for a while now. I find that the Lyvid hotel suits me very well for my stay. I am there on business and have been very pleased with the location. I would recommend it to my friends

Clean, friendly and near train station

This hotel is near the city centre, foreigner friendly and room was very clean with a good shower. With the recent events happening in Ukraine I did not know what to expect but it was better than even my highest expectations.

Pros: Staff, location
Cons: Would appreciate deadlocks on the doors, shuttle service to the nearby railroad station
Pleasant and helpful staff. I requested an early check-in after a 16 hour train trip and they accommodated me.
