Perfect Hotel. I will go back.
Posted Nov 6, 2015 on Hotels
I spent 8 nights at the Vozdvyzhensky in late October, as a tourist. It was my first trip to Kiev. I do hope to go back, and I would not consider any other hotel. Its location is perfect for exploring the city; EVERYONE working there was extremely warm and helpful, and completely welcoming. Breakfast in the restaurant was a pleasure each morning with a buffet plus hot dishes made to order; and I ate dinner there as well. The room (and bed, important to me) were very comfortable; and the wifi in the room was always perfect. The terraced garden off the restaurant (closed since it was late in the season) was a little paradise, climbing up a wooded hill right outside the Restaurant door, with tables for eating and drinking in warm weather.
Kiev is beautifully located, on a hill(s) above the Dniepro River; and the Vozdvyzhensky is located 5 minutes down from the top of the hill,, just off a winding,cobblestoned street that is full of life and always a pleasure to walk along. The street is crowned at the top by a magnificent Cathedral; and beyond it there is a short walk to St. Sophia and the National Museum, and many of the important places to visit in the city. At the foot of the hill is a different area: Podol which is a wonderful place to wander in as well.
I am already thinking about another trip next summer.
