Kiev Apartment?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Santa Clause is real! I was able to put together a quick trip to Kiev for next week to see my love for Christmas in Ukraine. Money is a little tight though, so hoping someone here may know of a good source for an inexpensive apartment in Kiev for 4 nights. Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks

Ooops ... Santa Claus even!

your best option for a cheap stay is a hostel somewhere around krishatik or other central areas.

Apts run from 30-100 a day.

Do some google search in russian that's how I got the 30$ price, if you cant type in russian use google translate search.

My wife says people hang around the Main Railway station (It is on the Subway station Vokzalna) and carry signs trying to rent apartments. Near the front entrance. She says about 200hryvna (~$25) a day is normal. Maybe your Fiancee can check this in advance.

You can write to me and I can give you a number my wife used for last summer, this was just one place. She says it is a nice place.

Google "Kiev rents" and look for a place outside the city center. If it is near the subway you can quickly get downtown and save $$$ on nightly rentals.

Not sure what your definition of inexpensive is, but I have been using wwww.booking.com for years and never have had a bad experience. Rented an apartment in Germany this past fall that was very nice and convenient and VERY INEXPENSIVE by my standards. Walking distance to the metro, grocery and restaraunts. Living room, bedroom and huge well equipped kitchen for less than $65 a night. It was set up to accomodate 6 people.. which was nice because we have some family there and one of the nights they stayed with us and several of the days they came over for a meal.

typically though, I try to find a nice hotel or guest house that includes breakfast so we don't have to go foraging first thing in the morning .

Same as Brad. I have used kievrent.net for 5 years when staying in Kyiv. I have recommended them to many friends and they have not disappointed anyone. They have a varied list of apartments. Good luck and have fun there. This is my first time in 5 years I have not been there for New Years. I'm not missing the cold. I don't think my Veka would like me leaving her here while I chased snow bunnies over there.

If Kiev is anything like Minsk, it would most likely be cheaper to have her rent an apartment than you. Bartering works well, and people there might take it for granted that you being an American that you have deep pockets.

Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

I agree in Minsk the non-tourist would haggle better, but Bartering? That is a new one.. here is 5 cabbages and a sack of potatoes, give me the keys to your flat? ;)

OK, I used the wrong word there. Replace barter with haggle.
