I had a really lovely stay at this apartment. I never met Kyrylo, but he was very responsive to any messages I sent him over the app.
I arrived earlier than the check-in time, and was able to leave my suitcase with the concierge thanks to Kyrylo. This was really convenient, so thank you to Kyrylo for arranging this :)
The apartment is very modern, fantastic bathroom, great room, comfy bed. Some of the light switches (for the fancy colorful lights on ceiling) were not functioning at all, and the lamps near the bedside were missing lightbulbs. Not a huge deal, but a bit strange, especially since the host said this was a brand new apartment that was only recently bought.
I also wish the lights that did turn on were more pleasant to the eyes -- currently all the lights are a white fluorescent, even in the bedroom.
Aside from these quibbles, the apartment really is as nice as it appears in the photos :)
A note about the location - it's not super convenient and a bit far from the city centre. Even by Uber, it takes about 20 minutes each day, because of the congestion and traffic jams.
I stayed five days at this apartment, but was soon able to find another apartment in the city centre (1 minute walk to Independence Square) that was exactly the same price, and was much more accessible to the rest of the city.
Obviously I don't blame the host for the location, as I chose to stay here and most everything was lovely, but in the future, I will always book closer to the city centre, since the price is the same.
Note to any future AirBnB'ers, make sure to tell your taxi or Uber driver to go to building 7B (not 7A). If you're looking up directions on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, be sure to type in "7-9" instead of "7B"... sounds strange, but it works!
Thanks again, Kyrylo, for the stay! :)
