I would rent an apartment. Cheaper and nicer than hotels. They will rent them on a daily basis. I have one service that I have used in Kyiv over the years. Their web address is kievrent.net. You can email them and tell them the location you are looking for and the dates. They will give you 4 or 5 options. You can also arrange for airport pickup and train station pickup with them. I have recommended them to other people over the years and they have been happy with them also.

who knows a nice hotel close to kiev embissy? not looking for 5 star just nice clean and good for like 4 or 5 days

any help is good!!

I have had better luck, always, with renting apartments. Usually cheaper and better than hotel rooms. Google "Kiev Rents" and check out what is available. They usually will arrange pickup at the airport, a car to the consulate, you name it (for a fee, of course, but usually reasonable)

I completely agree, usually... I almost always rent an apartment during my visits. But for only 3-5 days, I much prefer the convenience of a hotel. And he wants to be close to the Embassy. I think a hotel is a better choice in this case.

Kievrent has many apartments close to the consulate. Not walking distance, but a short taxi ride. I have used them sometimes for only 2 day rentals. I have not stayed at hotel Rus, but have stayed in two hotels before in Ukraine. They were small, old, crappy beds, and cost more than any apartment. Too each their own.

For a few days stay, it probably doesn;tmake a huge difference. I have yet to find anything decent in hotels in Kiev for under $100 per night, though I admit I have not looked very hard. I could always find nice apartments under $65 per night. I never stayed at the Hotel Rus. There are some rental flats close to the consulate and I have stayed in rental flats for as little as one night and had no problems. They were always larger, cleaner and cheaper than hotel rooms and allow the option of cooking in the room, though for short stays that is a moot point to be sure.

I have not found proximity to the consulate an issue really. we stayed in nice flats that were but a cheap 10 minute drive by private driver from the consulate. Alla has a cell phone full of c=driver contacts in Kiev and even without that the apartemnt people will arrange a ride for you.

At any rate, for a few days stay it isn;t a big deal, just putting the apratment option out there in case the OP didn't know about it.

By the way, have you called the consulate yet to schedule the interview?

Just curious if they input your case in the system. We are about a week apart on our cases arriving there.

It does and it doesn't. Recently people have been getting a positive response within a week. (i.e. case entered into the system).

I'll keep calling this week and see long it takes.

Good luck to you!

Good luck!

Good luck to you!

So when your status is "NVC received", you must call Consulate in Kiev to schedule interview? It is not automatically scheduled? Wow, good thing this forum exists, or else I probably would have just waited and never have gotten an interview.

Not quite. When it's sent to the consulate, not when NVC receives it. Come back when you got an NOA-2 for a step-by-step pointers of what to do next.

We'll help you out
