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.
How to Get There
Dining at this hotel is a real treat, and it's very conveniently located to lots of local attractions in the Podol district. Old Kiev is also just a few minutes (uphill) walk away. You're guaranteed service with a smile!
Hotel is one of the 5 stars hotels in kiev. I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past with my wife. we experienced constant distress. this time we made a reservation with Hotel.com. We spent time without problems for the first time. They also upgraded our room. Hotel is very good! Very good view! Very good staff. But problem in RECEPTION! If you are going to stay in this hotel as I have said in the past, I suggest you stay with a company like Tripadvisor, Hotels.com or Expedia.com.
After a visit in January that left me underwhelmed, my latest stay at the Fairmont has re-instated my opinion that this is the best luxury hotel in Kiev. Friendly service, excellent breakfast, large and comfortable rooms and amazingly large bathrooms. It is and remains my preferred accommodation in Kiev and Ukraine. Highly recommended!
I visited the fairmont hotel in a business trip and was left very satisfied overall. It definitely lacks the experiences offered at resort hotels, for a business trip in the center of Kiev there isn’t much more one can ask for. Cosy rooms, stylish decoration (both modern and classic) with a luxurious atmosphere. The restaurant in which the breakfast took place had really modern decoration and was my favorite part of the hotel in terms of aesthetics. However, the breakfast variety was not great and the some dishes in the restaurant in the a la carte dinner menu were unreasonably expensive.
Stayed for two days , the hotel is not in the centre of Kiev city but located few miles from centre . It over looks the river and is in a quiet area .
Rooms are clean and spacious , staff are well trained ,courteous and friendly. Breakfast is good and room service is great .
A good stay overall , will certainly come back .
