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.
The communication went flawless. The place is great. The location with respect to the city sights and public transportation is ideal. Elena was on vacation so I was welcomed by a friend of hers who helped me extremely well and showed me around the neighborhood. There are some great restaurants just around the corner. I couldn't be happier!
Elena was a very helpful host and she always responded very quickly. Unfortunately she was not in the city while i was there, so i instead shared the flat together with another guest. The other guest was a friend of Elena, and was also very helpful and accommodating. The place is near the metro station, which is very easy to navigate, so it was the perfect place to stay and i would love to come again.
My stay with Elena was great. I really enjoyed the opportunity to stay with a wonderful family. Everyone was very thoughtful and always ready to help make my stay the best.
Pack light. It is a fifth floor walk up. When I'm back in Kiev, I will be staying here.
Extremely. Lena welcomed me with dinner, a tour of Kiev and picked me up from the airport!
It was great to visit again and spent some more time than last time. This time I had time to do multiple things together, climbing, bbq-ing, walking, running, go out, visit the centre and the things I forgot to mention. Elena and Anna made the most excellent food (tiramisu, cake, breakfast), coffee and always ensure that you are fine. It is great to have them as friends.
I certainly recommend her as a host and will see them next time.
Elena was an amazing host and made my stay very special. The room is very pleasant and the bed was very comfortable for me. She was very kind to make sure I was able to get around OK on the subway and always checked in with me to see if she could help with anything. One evening I was invited to the philharmonic with Elena and her boyfriend; just one example of the premium hospitality. I can't recommend this place enough. Thanks!!
I received an incredibly warm welcome to Elena’s flat; despite my inconveniently late arrival. The entire stay was wonderful and they shared everything from great conversation, to useful advice and insightful conversation about Ukraine, helping me to better understand the country. The flat was very comfortable, the bedroom quiet and private, and the location was great- direct access by metro to the city center (about 10 minutes). Since the metro is very cheap and trains run very frequently, this is a really good way to access all the sites easily, without being in the noise and rush of the centre. I would highly recommend staying here.
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!
