Welcome to Kiev!
No smoking and no shoes in the house please.
Thank you for leaving our home as tidy as you found it.
If I have guests booked back to back, then please observe check in/out times. However, these do not apply if there are no guests the previous/following day. Of course you are always welcome to leave your belongings in the front room if you happen to arrive earlier and have some tea in the house or decide to go exploring while the previous guests are checking out of the room. Likewise, if new guests are expected but you need to leave your bags somewhere while you enjoy your last day in Kiev, you can always leave the bags in the house. Just let me know and we can arrange something to make everyone happy.
I hope that you will feel right at home in our house.
It was an awesome stay at Elena's place, there are so much nice people here. Elena, Jean-Baptiste and Anna were very nice to me and I felt very welcome.
I can say that above getting to know a new good place to stay, to also have new friends.
The room is very convenient, privet, clean with good bed.
The location is very close the metro from where the whole of Kyiv can be reached easily, close by supermarket and restaurant.
Elena, Jean-Baptiste and Anna, thank you very much for hosting me and see you next time.
Elena is a super nice host. She likes to share with guests whatever she has. The guest room was quiet, clean, and full of sunshine in the morning, making it easy for you to get up and start your day. If you want to reach her place by using public transportation, do get detailed instructions, especially when you don't speak Russian or can't read Cyrillic. It was not difficult and I found it work best when you download a Google map onto your smart phone in advance and map out the address. Despite the fact that it was a little tight for three family members and one guest to share a one bedroom apartment, everyone was gracious, polite, and considerate; we got along just fine.
I was first surprised that it was not an independent apartment, but the warm welcome made up for it. I felt very comfortable with the family. I had good interesting conversations, was able to go you my own way, and they were very helpful with finding my way in Kiev and with local sim card and handy App for phone.
There were hundreds of choices of places to stay in Kiev, but after reading all of Elena's fantastic reviews, I decided there was no reason to continue looking elsewhere...and now I'm going to add my own. Elena and her clan were always kind and hospitable, easy to get along with, and not bothered by my late-night returns. The room is located near public transport, both metro and bus, and is in a mostly residential area. ***Best veggie борщ in Ukraine!***
I had an absolutely wonderful stay with Elena, Jean and Anja. They helped me get situated, learn the metro and welcomed me with a warm bowl of borscht soup. During my stay, they often had some free time in which we went walking around the city to see the sights, buy food at the market and saw several shows. It is stays like this one that make airbnb special. Not knowing the language and culture, I would have had a tough time and not nearly as much fun. I think I can best sum up my stay by saying I was received with kindess as a stranger and left feeling like a part of the family. I will definitely visit again will stay again.
It was truly a great pleasure to stay in Elena's apartment. The room is clean, quiet and there is a good bed (also for tall people). But what is more important is that Elena is very helpful, thoughtful and makes you feel right at home. Sleeping in this apartment is surely one of the best ways to get to know the beautiful city of Kiev.
I enjoyed my stay with Elena very much. Her apartment is comfortable and cozy. Elena was warm, generous and flexible - sending transfer options from the train station in advance, accommodating a late evening arrival, offering a lovely breakfast before I headed out the next morning, and even ensuring I could find the nearest Metro station. A wonderful experience.
About the Host, Elena
Люблю общение, людей. С любым человеком могу найти общий язык. Увлекаюсь психологией, нравиться восточная философия - это помогает разобраться в людях, отношениях, в себе.
Люблю одиночество, книги, хорошие фильмы.
Мне повезло - в жизни встретила много хороших людей, надежных, порядочных, светлых, на которых можно положиться и которые делают меня лучше, сильнее, мудрее.
Нравиться йога, люблю плавание, пешие прогулки на природе.
А жизненный девиз пожалуй лучше всего выражен в фильме Роберто Бениньи "Жизнь прекрасна". Вкус к жизни, ее ценность, умение радоваться малому даже в безвыходных ситуациях, любить бескорыстно и искренне - это же круто!
