Travel to Kiev can be an upscale experience if you know where to go and where to stay. While Ukraine’s capital isn’t on anyone’s map of fancy places to go, beginning early 2014 it’s definitively been gaining a momentum. We’ll show all the high-end things Kiev have to offer so that you wont miss Paris, London and even New York that much.
Upscale Kiev Hotel Guide
We’ve already covered the most Luxury Kiev Hotels in 2013 but this year there are a few newcomers deserving extra attention:
Finally Kiev gets one of its own Hilton hotels. The place, as you might imagine, is for total luxury lovers and might even topple our favorite Hyatt hotel.
Kiev’s Hilton, like any 5 star stunner, is located downtown, close to the city center, and has:
- panoramic rooms with a great view
- fancy pool and a spa
- 13 meeting rooms, executive lounge and a ball room
- rooftop restaurant, of course!
King’s room is a total looker and goes for a hefty $500 a night, though great memories and even greater Instagram photos are guaranteed.
More good news, the hotel is only 40 minutes away from Borispol airport.
Marriott is another upgrade on the Kiev hotel scene. The hotel is luxurious though the design and interior, as well as exterior is very much European style, which is why locally the hotel is also called Renaissance hotel. It offers 173 guests rooms, as well as expensive suites for anyone with money and taste. The hotel is set to open in Feb 2015 but it promises to quickly become one of the top 5 high-end Kiev hotels.
So buckle in for a very productive 2014, because in 2015 Kiev will be more beautiful and modernized than most used to seeing it.
