If you're looking for a ridiculously cheap place to stay while exploring central Kiev, this is the place to be. The rooms are simple, clean, air-conditioned and comfortable. There is a distinct Soviet feel to the style and decor, but the facilities are all modern.

We loved the hotel: nice, clean, central location, 5 min walk to a subway station, very helpful front desk staff. Our room actually had two rooms: a bedroom with air conditioning and a separate small living room with a TV and sofa. Both rooms had balconies with a good view. There is a water cooler with cold and hot water... More

The hotel is clean and fresh. The mattresses are a bit hard and Soviet-type but considering the price and the location of the hotel it is good. The Wi-Fi is not the best, but it seemed that the last night we where there they fixed it up. The view is fantastic! We lived on the 12th floor and the view... More

Ok. The most important things to know about this hotel is that it costs about €20 a night for room and breakfast. For that you will get a night's sleep in a small room with reasonable comfort and a tiny shower room. You will also get a breakfast of sorts with fresh fruit and coffee to start your day. If...

Express hotel offers a great value for comfortable and clean room. Near the metro and other public transportation including the train station and skybus. The rooftop restaurant offers a fantastic view especially at night.

Nice and clean room, located close to center and to metro station. Only problem if you want to bring a guest after midnight, you have to pay some cash extra (even if you have paid for a double bed). If you want to bring a guest during the day there is no extra cost.

Loved my stay in Express hotel. In the Centre of the city close to everything. Metro, trams, buses,trains. But taxi in Kiev so cheap, so that was my main transport in Kiev. My room was on the small side, but still not that small like in Japan. There are many different type of rooms. Caffè downstairs and restaurant upstairs. Food... More

This is not a five star hotel but it gets four stars for value. I stayed for four nights and found it comfortable enough for me. The staff are pleasant enough when you ask for help and the location is good, ten minutes walk from the train station and twenty minutes from maidan. The reception desk and security are 24... More

This is another hotel that offers rooms at a fraction of the price of some other places, including some quite nearby, but somehow manages to maintain a certain standard that doesn't leave you regretting your thriftiness. At least, sometimes. I have stayed here several times, including at least twice this year, and though I have normally been quite content, I... More
