The apartment is close to many sites worth seeing
Posted Apr 27, 2016
The apartment is in the historic area of Kiev. It is only two blocks from independence square, bus lines, and the subway. There are many restaurants close that have the food listed in English. The room has a small kitchen if you want to cook your own meals. There is a small market about 50 feet away and a larger market in the square two blocks away. If you are going to Kiev to find a Ukrainian wife, like I was, there is a marriage agency next door who will introduce you to local women that speak excellent English. The staff were very helpful in answering questions, calling for a taxi, and giving directions. They speak very good English. I had only two complains. The site said that you can make free local calls but there is no telephone in the room. The telephone is in the managers office, so if it is outside of normal hours you can not make a call. The second complaint is about the furniture. My couch had a broken armrest and the covering was peeling. They covered the couch with a blanket but the pieces of the covering still fell on the floor. It would have been nice to have a small table to work on. I used the wobbly coffee table as a work area. It is an old building so be prepared to climb stairs that are well used. The room was large and clean. The bedroom has many shelves and a nightstand so there is plenty of room for your clothing and other items. If you are unsure of what food to eat there is a McDonalds down by the square two bocks down hill.
