Overview

Elegant riverside retreat in Kiev's historic Podil district with a posh steakhouse and a champagne bar

The Lowdown

Opened in 2012, the 258-room Fairmont Grand Hotel blends classical elegance with modern luxuries; it was the first property in Eastern Europe under the Fairmont brand. Ranging from 431 to 570 square feet, the hotel’s standard guestrooms provide a significant amount of space and feature marble bathrooms, 42-inch HDTVs, deluxe bathrobes and Le Labo toiletries. Suites come with kingsize Stearns & Foster beds, separate bedrooms and sitting areas — as much as 2,368 square feet of space — as well as amenities like free breakfast, access to a private lounge and evening canapés (for Fairmont Gold Suites). The Elixir Spa provides treatments such as a Chocolate Delight body wrap, hot stone or Swedish massages and Roman baths. There are several lounges, including the Vintage Cocktail Bar, which specializes in craft beverages, cigars and shisha, and the Grand Cru Champagne Bar, which serves caviar, light bites and pastries. The Strand Grill offers gorgeous city views and serves an impressive breakfast as well as charcoal-grilled steaks and traditional Ukrainian and Mediterranean fare from an open kitchen.

In the Area

Kiev is dotted with stunning cathedrals and museums. Saint Sophia Cathedral and Kiev-Pechersk Lavra (Caves Monastery) are two iconic religious sights, while the Mykola Syadristy Microminiatures Museum displays tiny, intricate works of art. There are several parks that offer a change of pace, including Feofania Park and the Grishko Central Botanical Garden. Shoppers can visit the Besarabsky Market for fresh produce, spices and other local produce, or hit the Globus Mall for designer stores and restaurants. Head to Slavutych Shato Brewery for a casual meal and quality beer, or enjoy an evening out at Fiori Il Ristorante, which serves Ukrainian favorites as well as international dishes.

Excellent hotel in a wonderful city...
Reviewed 2 days ago

The Fairmont Grand Hotel is a terrific hotel by the river in the beautiful city of Kiev, just a short walk to some amazing architectural destinations. The room was extremely comfortable, well-appointed, and a terrific view of the river. The service throughout the hotel was first-rate, and the food in the Vogue Café was excellent...the breakfast buffet is highly recommended! Everyone associated with the hotel who I came in contact with was friendly, helpful, and professional. The only drawback I had in the hotel during my stay was problems with the internet in the room...I overcame this by using the computers on the third floor. Overall the hotel provided a welcome stay and one that I will definitely repeat next time I go to Kiev.

Pure Class!

While visiting Kyiv for a business conference, I stayed at the Fairmont Grand Hotel with a room overlooking the river and 2 of the bridges (which lit up at night making it a very nice sight!). The hotel is pure class, from the lovely foyer, the extremely polite and helpful staff and the variety offered for breakfast. The room was extremely spacious and the bathroom had both bath & shower (!).
You cannot go wrong with the Fairmont, you get what you pay for and that is class!

I highly recommend this hotel. Excellent food and service

internet issues in the rooms
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Fairmont hotel is a nice hotel, however in case you want to work though the room and trying to send and receive any emails, it is not possible because the internet it does not work 80% of all the time and even if sometimes works is very week that you can not even send a simple email. Even though we informed the reception several times since we enter the room, they seem to have a problem with internet network.
