11 mirrors design hotel

Kiev, Ukraine

To be honest - if we had to design our own hotel it wouldn’t look like the 11 Mirrors at all. It’s kitschy and kooky, but if your going to Kiev (and you should) - this is the place to stay.

Service is amazing. It doesn’t matter if you speak with the doorman, the janitor or the concierge - the staff will always assist you with a big smile. Also brilliant is the location. Five minutes out the door you will find several of the best restaurants in town, Kiev Opera, Saint Volodymyrs cathedral, the nicest spa in town and several bars and nightclubs. There are plenty of other things to see and do in Kiev as well, but the area around the hotel will keep you well occupied for several days.

rooms

The best rooms at the 11 Mirrors are definitely the Signature Premium rooms. They are around 40 square meters with large windows and a spectacular view over the Saint Volodymyrs cathedral. All rooms in this category are facing the street and the cathedral and have a large bathtub with room for two. The Desire Deluxe rooms are also large (37 square meters) and also face the street but these rooms come without a bathtub. Rooms in the Incognito category all face the backyard so we recommend that you stick with either of the first two categories.

Food & Wine

11 Mirrors has a small restaurant where they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast is of a very high standard for an Eastern European hotel with freshly squeezed juice, good coffee and a nice buffet with pancakes, ommelets, cheese and cold cuts. For lunch and dinner they offer a nice European menu. The cheese platter was an unexpected delight. There is a decent wine menu, reasonably priced for a luxury hotel in Kiev. There are several good restaurants around the hotel. Try Kiev's best Italian - Osteria Pantagruel - just a five-minute walk away. Remember to reserve a table as this place is very popular.

spa

11 Mirrors doesn’t have their own spa or fitness centre, but they cooperate with Kiev’s premier spa and gym that’s just a few minutes away. Here you will find a large gym, a spa with a large menu of treatments as well as a Russian sauna, Turkish hammam, jacuzzi and a 12.5 meter swimming pool. If you feel like going for a run, Kiev botanical garden is just around the corner.

You are seldom spoiled with good service when you travel around Eastern Europe, but this hotel is different. We can't remember the last time we stayed at a big city hotel with such a great staff, happy to guide us around an unknown city. And when you also have the chance to meet boxing legend turned politician, Vitaly Klitscho in the lobby bar - you can't really complain.
