LOCATION INFO SECTION
Do you know that you will stay on the banks of the river?
A little bit of history of the location.
In the XVIII century the old city fortifications were demolished, the moats were filled in, leveled and replaced by public gardens and parks. The architectural appearance of the city changed drastically. The modern city center appeared on the banks of the Poltva River. At the end of the XIX century the river locked into a concrete manifold, so basically you will be standing on a river. The construction works in the main avenue grew faster after Lviv was proclaimed the capital of one of the 26 provinces of Austro-Hungarian Empire. The nobility of Lviv wanted it to resemble the greatest cities of Europe. Local newspapers called Lviv ‘a small Paris’. Public places, luxurious hotels and shops began to spread around.
Svobody Avenue is the main street of the city. Previous names: from the mid-nineteenth century. - Higher Karolya Ludwig and Carol Ludwig Net (Untere i Obere Karl Ludwig Straße, Karola Ludwika wyższa i niższa). In 1871 St. Louis High Karolya were called Hetman (Hetmańska), in honor of the great crown hetman Stanislaw Jablonovsk (Stanisław Jabłonowski), whose monument installed in 1859, and below - just Carol Ludwig. Since 1919 st. Carol Ludwig were called Legions (Legionów). In 1887, under the direction of engineer Vaclav Ibanskoho (Wacław Ibański) blocked Poltva River underground. In 1940 Hetmanska street and entered the Legion warehouse one - the first of May. In 1941 her first divided into Opernstrasse and Museumstrasse, and then merged under the name Adolf Hitler Platz / Ring. In 1944 - First of May, and then were called Lenin Avenue. In 1991 renamed to Svobody Avenue (year when Ukraine got independence from Soviets).

I was very pleased with my stay in Alex's place! The apartment was as described, right downtown, and even larger than I expected. Alex was also very responsive and easy to deal with.
Great apartment with perfect location in the city center. And also Alex is a great host , helpful and always in contact and always trying to help his guests.
Positive- It's pretty closer to center of Lviv, probably 3 km away, just take a bus (#31 or trollerbus. The room was nice and plain. I woke up late, I appreciate he was ok with it.
The reservation was full so the owner let me stay at his place.
Negative- He got curfew time and he made us go to home on time. He didn't give me a key for the entrance of apartment.
Thank you for your review Zeal.
It worth to clearly note that this review is about private room in other apartment, as current apartment were not available. As it was just one night emergency booking stay in private room and we do expect people to return in agreed time. I didn't give keys from the apartment door as you said you will knock when you come, you also had the keys to get into the building and common entrance. If I knew you could be late or if you were staying for more than one night I would give you the apartment key too. Hope you had nice city tour after having a good rest in our place. :)
Alex and his father were great! Great service! The apartment is clean and very comfortable. The location is the best on Lviv's main street and 1 block from square. One of the best restaurants is downstairs. One of the best experiences I have had staying in an apartment. I will be returning and staying in this apartment.
Alex was a great host. His place is in an ideal location, and directly above a great restaurant. It's easy walking distance to everything. Will definitely stay here again !
Nice and comfortable apartment in center of Lviv. No need to use transport to see all interesting places in city center. It's closer than you can imagine. Clean and quiet place with all you need for your life. Great city. Great host. Thanks Alex! Highly recommended!
Уютная и удобная квартира в самом центре Львова. Все достопримечательности в пешеходной досягаемости. Забудьте о транспорте. Вас ждут незабываемые прогулки по историческому центру города. Квартира чистая и не шумная, оборудована всем необходимым для жизни. Мы получили большое удовольствие от знакомства со Львовом. Спасибо Алексу за радушие и гостеприимство. Будемрекомендовать друзьям.
The flat is really nice, clean and quite. The position is very close to all actraccions and Alex was very flexible and helpfull.
Our stay in Alex's apartment was fabulous! The apartment was spotlessly clean, very spacious and right in the centre of L'viv. We where greeted at the train station very early in the morning by Alex and his father and taken back to the train very last by them again. He accommodated us very well as our travel times were at difficult times. We hired Alex's father to take us on a rather long journey to visit some villages where my grandparents were born. The trip was long but very enjoyable as his father did everything he could to make sure we saw what we hoped to see. I highly recommend to whoever may stay there to definitely consider hiring his father as he has a great deal of knowledge of the Ukraine. Some knowledge of the language would be a definite asset. If you just tour around the city, it's right out the door with shops, markets, cultural venues as well as various tours and transportation within minutes. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful city. If I have a chance to visit again, I will certainly stay here! Thank you Alex and Stephan
It was my and my friend's first Airbnb experience. We are happy to tried it. Location is perfect. The flat was almost close to the everywhere we marked on the Lviv map. It was clean & spacious with full of day light. We had all the comfort we might need; wifi, cooking facilities,clean towels,linens,iron, hair dryer even guidebooks. Despite of the cold wheather,inside was always warm. We called the flat as our home while our stay in Lviv. Alex is a nice, kind person. Many thanks to him for his kindness,help and suggestions abt the city. We definetely suggest Alex's flat to everyone. We loved the spirit in Lviv. It is kind of slow,lovely city with many artistic touches and full of life. would like to comeback again & stay at Alex place. Alex, thanks for all again...
Alex is extremely helpful, always available and interested in making sure his guests needs are met and that they enjoy their stay. Great guy, very friendly and easy to get along with. His place has a wonderful location and price. My main items when looking for a place to stay are: location, cleanliness, wifi and a clothes washer - his place easily passed with flying colors! Alex - thank you very much for a great time in your gorgeous city !!!
