    Here are our views and experiences with the Hyatt Regency in Kiev // Kyiv // Ukraine during our completed recent 4 night stay in this magical city.

    Arrival: We arrived in the afternoon at the airport and after the security // luggage have met our driver with S-Class Limousine promptly in a friendly and efficient manner. [ We had arranged our pick-up earlier with the hotel concierge ] The drive was fascinating and fast, free water was provided too. No problems here at all.

    Check-in: Once inside the fabulous glass facade of the Hyatt, it was a very efficient check-in by a friendly female employee, were introduced to all the facilities on offer in the hotel, Club Lounge offerings and so on. After a few minutes we were on our way to our Club King Room.

    The Room: Going up an impressive atrium to the 8th floor with great views was as good as it gets on arrival. Luggage was promptly delivered to our room and we had a great view incl. skyline and Saint Michaels Cathedral. The room was in good condition, modern with classic touches, non-offensive color scheme in classical Hyatt format. A lot of space, modern furniture and great bed plus superb bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, no complaints at all in fact from us here.

    Club Lounge: Great welcome, always friendly, breakfast was complimentary in the restaurant on the 1st floor, superb choice [ nearly everything we could ever want ] and a lot of people each morning. The Lounge provided all day coffee, cookies, soft drinks and reading material. A great modern and indeed inviting space. During happy hour in the evening 5:30 to 7:30 pm, we had always a great cheese selection, nuts, grapes, bread, salads, some warm items, wine, beers and other great offerings incl. dessert choices and so fort. The lounge ladies have always been hands on with clearing tables, serving coffees and filling our glasses up. A great and friendly service.

    Location: We found it fantastic, halfway within easy walking distance from the Saint Michael Monastery of the golden Domes and Saint Sophia Cathedral. Downtown Kiev was only 10 to 15 leisurely walking minutes away. The airport is around 40 km away from the hotel and is reachable in around 45 minutes - 75 minutes, traffic permitting, each way.

    Overall: A great hotel, highly recommended, we liked the facade of the hotel, so modern and in great condition, so new and shiny, so different to the great historical surroundings. Room service was good too plus the location, service and friendliness are always offered here. We had two times the same limousine and driver in each direction from // to the airport // hotel.

    Bonus: One of us had a Spa package in the fabulous spa here, massage, facial, tea, and some more. Reported as being wonderful and in great modern but soothing surroundings. Excellent, not cheap, but worth it.

    Photos: All photos posted are from our account from Flickr, were taken from us during our stay at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Kiev, Ukraine. The link to each photo is to be found under each photo posted.

    Excellent review! Kiev is probably not a city I would find myself in, but thanks for the review!
