Name: 11 Mirrors
When you stay in lots of hotels it’s always exciting to find somewhere with an edge and that’s certainly the case for the unique and rather striking 11 Mirrors Design Hotel in Kiev, Ukraine.
The independent hotel is perfectly located right in the very heart of old yet dynamic Kiev. You are just metres away from the National Opera House and a 5-minute walk to the landmark Golden Gate at the entry to the medieval city. The creative city is packed with religious architecture, secular monuments and history museums but is also up and coming and very trendy right now. The nightlife is fabulous and it’s so cheap you can dine very finely for a fraction of what you would pay in the west.
Style & Character
The design hotel is contemporary, urban and ultra-stylish. It’s very international and rather innovative. Rich dark purple accents a mainly black and silver colour palate so you feel like you’re in a sultry nightclub. Don’t miss the fabulous mirrored wall decorations and the stainless-steel ceiling.
Service & Facilities
The service here is notable. Charming, professional and very efficient; the staff speak excellent English and are always on hand when required. There are also a lot of services designed to make your stay here as easy as possible for you: a 24-hour concierge service, 24 hour room service, 24 hour security, business centre services, full daily housekeeping, a turndown service, laundry, dry cleaning and shoe shining; the list goes on!
Guests at the hotel can also enjoy the Leonardo Wellness Club: the nearest and one of the best wellness and SPA centres in the city. The club is just two minutes’ walk away and boasts a 25m swimming pool, hydromassage zone; children’s pool; fitness classes and gym; SPA Zone and Beauty Salon and Sauna Centre with Russian bath; Hammam; Roman bath; Jacuzzi and Cold Plunge Pool; perfect for indulging aching limbs after exploring the beautiful city of Kiev.
Choose from 49 guestrooms and suites; all are smart and stylish spaces with rainfall showers, complimentary Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. The bathrooms are spa-inspired and as ultra-stylish as the rooms. Upgrade for open bars with a refined collection of drinks and an oversized tub. The very swanky 2-bedroom Lifestyle Executive Suites also have living rooms if you fancy spreading out. Several of the rooms have wonderful city views with floor to ceiling views to give them proper credit.
Food & Drink
The 11 Mirrors restaurant and bar, located on the mezzanine, are well worth a visit during your stay. The atmosphere is relaxed, the style as elegant as the rest of the hotel and the refined European cuisine; simply delicious. There’s also a lounge on the first floor; the ideal spot to relax and watch the world go by while sipping a glass of Ukrainian chardonnay.
