Rediscover Kiev with Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv



Shereen Shabnam

Last month we ventured into Kyiv and stayed at the Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv located in the historical heart of the city. The property is an idyllic place with impeccable views of the Dnipro River, the golden domes of surrounding cathedral, and countless world-famous architectural landmarks and city attractions.

The Fairmont brand, which is recognized worldwide, is synonymous with the finest levels of luxury and service in hospitality. We found the five star hotel an ideal destination for sophisticated travelers and discovered that the venue is a hot spot for the most iconic social events in Kyiv.

The Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv is a very epitome to luxury with 258 breathtaking guest rooms and suites, which are offering unprecedented views of the city and the Dnipro River.

We were able to walk along the coastal promenade and experience different types of cuisine within the area. It is the perfect hotel that offers a world of comfort and elegance and where every detail is tailored to fulfil the needs and desires of guests.

Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv offers a unique combination of exceptional service and understanding of every guest`s needs. My mornings were a delight at the superb and refined cuisine of Vogue Café. It is a great venue to have a lazy breakfast with a good book in between coffee and pastries.

When meeting friends for chilled out relaxing moments, I would recommend Sweet Book where one can enjoy the nest confectionary delights. The Vintage Bar and lounge is a place for refreshing cocktails and an ideal venue for early evenings with friends and colleagues.

As I was in Kyiv for a few days, I tried out the Elixir SPA Deluxe. My experience with the hair salon was passable – however my fellow guests mentioned that the skin and body treatments were very good.

All rooms at the hotel provide pillow menus, free WiFi and 24-hour room service. The location is however the hotel’s best feature as I enjoyed getting up in the morning to the views of the water and be able to walk to nearby attractions. The Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv offers the best of three eras: past, present and future in one place and it is a must visit when in Kyiv.
