Before to go somewhere we always thinking about accommodation. When you go to the Europe or North America all is very simple. You know what you have in your pocket, you know well your needs. Now World became much different, then it was before last World crisis. Majority of people before crisis almost never complain about accommodation. It was hotels. But now in East Europe develop very fast apartment service. This type of accommodation is cheaper and more comfortable. During your travel to Ukraine first you have to understand. Apartments in Kiev and hotels in Kiev is two big different things.
If you visit Ukraine 10 Years ago - you can remember, then hotels and apartments in Kiev was very simple, furniture mainly was made by simple Soviet standards. Right now many Hotels invest money to renovation, because in competition with apartments quality of rooms in hotels is always behind. In apartments of Kiev so many perfectly renovated apartments. If before to find flat with Jacuzzi was too rare, now every third apartment in city center have even double Jacuzzi bathtub. You can imagine haw big choice of furniture you can find. In hotels all is the same. All rooms as like eggs from one chick. Only one benefit have big hotels. Big hotels have a Lobby. But also hotels have security, such like to do completely different service, then you probably expect. Life in Kiev, the same as in all Ukraine, very different, then in Europe and other civilized country's. When you coming to Hotel with some of your friends, security always stop customer with one reason. Invite guests in room of Hotel is forbidden. It is for time after 10 pm. Security say, then it is rule, such work in all Hotels in Ukraine. Many times security even say, if you want bring guests in your room, better book an apartment in Kiev.
When you decide to stay in apartment in Kiev, the same in Odessa, Sevastopol, Yalta, or other big city of Ukraine, you can get many benefits. One from this benefits it is freedom.
