This didn't was first time I selected UARent as partner in Kiev but maybe this time it was better than other times (if possible).
We felt very well during our stay in Kiev, starting with "welcome" at Borispol (very nice the transfer from Borispol to Kostiolna), till the transfer back, at Borispol.
A very kind young man, polite, clever, that he had even proposed to bring us in some supermarket on the road, waiting for us, in order to purchase something for the stay. Really very, very kind.
Location is fantastic, just 2 steps from Maidan. The apartment is UARent standard (clean, well finished, etc.) and, even elevator. Only the boiler for the tea didn't worked, but this didn't was very important. Of course I would had call UARent office, but I didn't done it because we were very few time inside. I let you know now, in order you know and replace it, for other tourists.
The transfer back at Borispol, too - another man as above, the appointment was at 8:00 in Saturday morning and he came just at... 8:00 in the morning. No only minute later. Perfect, really perfect.
So, concluding, thank you again and congratulations for your staff!

Thanks for another enjoyable stay!
1. Staff was excellent.
2. We received a personal escort to our apartment.
3. Apartment was clean and comfortable.
4. Location was the best I've experienced with UARent.
My only concern would be to eliminate the balcony amenity listed with this apartment. This apartment does not have a balcony.
I also left a positive review on TripAdvisor.
See you next time!!

I liked the apartment I stayed in. The only little problem was I could not turn on the TV , but then I found the instruction. Someone put it in the table and I could not see it in the room. I am coming back in the middle of May and would like to book the same apartment in Reitorska Street , I will send you my new dates by the end of this week. Thank you for good service
Roberto, Spain - April 03rd, 2014
There is nothing to complain at all. Apartment was perfect for my needs and I liked it very much. Location is just perfect. I had a very good time in Kiev and surely come back.

Спасибо за теплый прием , все понравилось. Отдельная благодарность за то, что оперативно пришли включили бойлер. Не хотелось каждый день привыкать мыться в ледяной воде:) Понимаю , что вашей вины в этом нет , в центре города частенько бывают перебои с водой. Все же очень хорошо , что это у вас предусмотрены средства помощи в подобных ситуациях. У меня был печальный опыт с другими компаниями , которые , скорее всего ,не могли позволить себе приобрести бойлер.

I have used the services of UARent many times in the past and cannot praise enough the service, the quality and locations of the apartments and the helpfulness of the staff! No matter where I want to stay in Kiev there is always an apartment where I need it to be! One thing that make UARent so different from other companies is the friendliness of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble! Thanks again.

I wanted a nice hotel in Kiev that was close to St Michael cathedral (and my company office), but without the high prices, and that was close to the metro. After searching on internet and reading numerous reviews, I decided to go with the UA Rent. I was not disappointed! The apartment on Reitorska is a perfect combination of central location and convenience. It seems to cater to business people more, but also would perfectly suit for a romantic weekend etc. Parking is next to apartment, secured. Honestly you don’t wanna use a car during a business day in Kiev downtown, so having free parking was handy. The room was good sized, as was the bathroom. Bathroom had Bath and Body Works amenities. Broadband Internet available for free. The kitchen area didn’t have a microwave, so I requested one and it was delivered the next day for no additional fee. Bedroom has soft comfortable bed and additional folding sofa. Several blocks from the apartment is Independence Square and Khreshatik, also St Andrew church with picturesque places to walk. Definitely would stay there again on my next trip to Kiev.

I was asked to write a short review by Alex and I’m pleased to share my experience with UARent. Have stayed at their locations several times over three past years, both on solo business travel and with family for leisure. All booked apartments served both purposes well. It is much like a "standard very good hotel", but the location (quiet downtown, historical places, near Metro stations, short ride by car to any places of interest, stores and restaurants around) and seemingly safe neighborhood, make me want to rate it "excellent". I do think the staff members were "excellent" on every occasion as well. When I needed something extra, the manager was right there assisting with my needs either by phone or sending someone from the staff my way. The apartment rooms were clean and the fully furnished kitchen/dining area with microwave/fridge are very helpful. Bathrooms are of good size, very clean. One of the apartments had Jacuzzi and adjustable light system – something you won’t expect in average level accommodation. Towels and all linens were always perfect. I definitely will stay again when in the town. Also I do recommend using UARent for your stay in Kiev.
Youssef, OAE - September 29th, 2012
We stayed at Mikhaylovski Lane apartment for a week in September 2012. KBP international airport is about 40 miles from downtown so we ordered airport pickup and it was all in time. They delivered us directly to the apartment which took about 1 hour drive from the airport. All of the staff were professional and helpful, but the front desk staff was outstanding. Zoya was especially helpful, definitely a standout employee. The apartment is modern decorated, clean and comfortable. We were pleased with our stay.
George, USA - October 1st, 2012
I was pleasantly surprised by our clean and nice room. We spent five nights and had a comfy bed, a large bathroom, plenty of space for our bags, soft towels, and very clean too! The location couldn't be better - literally a less than 2 minute walk to Globus shopping mall and a less than 15 minute walk to mandarin Plaza and Arena Club. The driver picked us up at the airport very quickly, and the staff was friendly and helpful. At such a reasonable price for Kiev, we thought for sure something would be sub-par, but really, this was a nice place. Not a fancy hotel, but it you are looking for a great deal in a great location in Kiev, this is definitely the place.
Ana-Maria, Spain - November 12, 2012
My family stayed in Prorizna apartment while spending a couple of days touring Kiev in 2012. It was a very economical choice compared to expensive Kiev hotels. Moreover they provided free parking right next to the building so I had no issues to park my minivan. The apartment was immaculate, comfortable, a short walk to great restaurants, and a 5 minute walk to Maidan - central square of Kiev. The metro is close, but we opted for cabs which are about $5 to $10 to any tourist place including museums and shopping malls. There is a little street noise early in the morning, but you kind of expect that being in the center of a big city. Otherwise, we would surely stay here again.
Lars, Sweden - February 23rd, 2013
We were visiting friends working in Kiev for several year and they recommended us UARent as a reliable agent who often accommodates their firm’s guest from abroad. The proposed apartment (Institutska – UARent) was in a great location nearby of National bank of Ukraine and President residence, close to shops and restaurants and only a short 3 minutes walk from the very downtown and main sightseeing attractions. The apartment was spacious, well furnished and had excellent entertainment facilities (plasma TV, cable, WIFI, desktop PC). It was great staying in a place having kitchen facilities rather than having to rely on a minibar, room service and expensive bars/restaurants. The bathroom was of good size with jakuzzi, the towels clean and dry. The only disturbing moment was a demonstration of some political party one day loudly screaming their demands right under our windows, but we’ve found that entertaining in the end taken lots of pictures. All in all a great experience.

We lived in UARent’s short term Kiev apartment on Podol area for almost two months while adopting our Ukrainian child. We’ve been travelling a lot throughout Ukraine, so I was really pleased with our Kiev apartment compared to accommodations we rented out in other regions of Ukraine. The Kiev apartment is located in a nice antique building, thought is a bit far away from the tube but close enough to lots of great places to eat and shop. The river nearby is an additional advantage that was just beautiful. I lived in a studio flat with my husband - it was large enough for both of us and comfortable. The furniture was up to date and clean and I really liked the bijou bathroom. The main drawback was that the kitchen area was too small. There is almost no room to prepare food in one of the studio flats - if I could go back in time I would've rented one of the larger UARent’s units to have a better kitchen. The apartment has its own laundry machine which was very handy as we travelled back and forth. For the entire 2 months stay I was really impressed with our friendly staff, which looked after us well and were very accommodating.
Luigi, Italy - July 5th, 2013
I stayed here (Sofievska Apartment - UArent) for several nights with my Ukrainian girlfriend and was more than impressed!! We wanted something different than a usual hotel and this was definitely the place we've been looking for. The apartment has everything we could need. The decor was modern; rooms are of good size and clean. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The surrounding area is wonderfully quiet and only a short walk from Independence square. Several steps from the apartment is beautiful St Sophia cathedral and newly built Hyatt 5 star hotel. The disadvantage is lack of WiFi, though it has cable Internet connection with pretty good signal. I have already recommended this to my friends and will definitely stay there again!
Wolfgang, Germany - August 2nd, 2013
I stayed at Vladimirska serviced apartment recently with friends of mine. The apartment was an excellent base for our week long business trip. This Kiev apartment is stylish, modern and fully kicked out. It was feeling just like home. Close to Golden Gate, Opera, metro station and several western style cozy restaurants with excellent food, so we enjoyed some great evening outs and could just walk home. Kreschatik, the main Kiev Street, is just 5 minutes walk down the hill, Arena night club is 10 minutes walk. But I do prefer the area we stayed up on the hill – less tourists, beautiful and intimate.
Robert Entman - October- 17, 2013
Since 2005 I go to Kiev 2-3 times per year for few weeks at the time. Love this city. I preferred to stay at hotel Hyatt or Premiere palace due to its conveniences and location. But I tell you. Spending 2-3K per trip just on accommodation can become expensive. I have cash) but prefer to spend it on other things in Kiev. And trust me, Kiev has lots to offer...) Few years ago as usual hanging out art O'Brian's Irish pub around a corner from Hyatt I met Alex. Guy run this UARent company. They offer private apartments near the independence square for daily rent. We had a few drinks and nice talk. Any way for about 80$ per night Alex put me in this nice one bedroom flat right next to O'Brien's on Mikhajlovskij lane 4 (Pereulok Mikhajlovskij). Apartment has all you need. You get fully staffed kitchen, large flat TV, fast wifi, which is free and most valuable- privacy. No need to sign in your guests at the reception if you have girl staying over with you. Another nice thing. There office is right across the street on Mikhajlovska street. So if I need anything they come immediately. And if I am bored or have questions I can always come to there office to hang out or have a chat. Alex's wife Oksana has a dating agency so it was another nice thing). Few years ago I had them both in Miami, Florida for diner. Well, ever since, coming to Kiev, I always take there flats and they are my guests in Florida. Few advices for travelers. When you take apartment. Try to be in center. Aria from Independence square to Arena entertainment center in the best to stay. You can also consider Podol, but only first few blocks on Sagaidachnogo street near Postal Square (Poshtova ploscha). Another less expensive option Lesi Ukrainiky street. Near new business center Parus. You only 3 meters away from Arena center and not that far from Khreschatik. Another advice: watch out for money scams. Whenever someone picks up on a street a stack of cash asking if it's yours or offering to split it - walk away without saying anything. This is scam but I am sure you know about it. Any way good luck to you all and enjoy your stay in Kiev.
