People who travel a lot for
business purposes or just for fun definitely know what the most important thing
is missing in any place of the world except native. Of course it is "home
from home" atmosphere, the warmth of hearth. If you ever go to Ukrainian Kiev,
do not hesitate to take up your residence in homey private apartments, instead
of noisy hotels with obtrusive service. This city has a lot of variants to
offer for those who has got rid of
hotels. Kiev apartments, whether it is a
separate flat or a room in private inns, is available for daily rent that is
the most convenient way if you are coming for a short trip.
Choosing the exact location of residence is very important, it depends on several key factors, varying on the purpose of your trip. If you come to Kiev on business, you should take into account the location of future apartment. It needs to be as close as possible to the main place of meeting with your business partner (place of holding a conference, presentation, etc.). The main part of business institutions are located in the right-bank districts (areas) of Kiev, such as Pecherskyi, Shevchenkivskyi, Podilskyi and Obolonskyi areas. As for local apartment Kiev offers a wide range of packages from "budget single-room flats to luxurious apartments with 24-hour security service and comfortable guarded parking. Even the "budget" variant can be rather expensive for foreign visitors, but the main advantage is no need to spend much on transport and of course, saving the time.
Noisy districts do not mean "noisy" flats. Most of renters took care about the quality of service, so in most cases you can expect modern renovation inside, good-looking interior, noise insulation and many other pleasant trifles, depending on the price and your own preferences.
If you need to visit lots of establishments, located in various parts of the city, the best variant for you will be to settle down near some central underground railway station, so you will be ready in any time for travelling around Kiev. If your status allows you to hire a private driver (or if he is your due), the location of your temporary apartments can be only the matter of your tastes. Want to be in the swim ? stay in the central part, want to spend free time quietly in calm atmosphere ? take something located in dormitory neighborhoods, like Sviatoshynskyi and Solomianskyi areas (right-bank part) or Darnytskyi, Desnianskyi and Dniprovskyi areas (left-bank part). To avoid traffic jams on the bridges, try to select apartments on the same bank with most of your business locations.

Kiev hotels, even small and ordinary ones, cost twice more expensive than private apartments.
