11 Mirrors is the precise point where old and new Ukraine collide. Located in the beautiful historic quarter of Kyiv, it lies just a few strides from the majestic National Opera House, with the painted domes of St Volodymyr’s Cathedral visible at a glance from the hotel’s city-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows. And yet to stay here is to experience modern Kyiv hospitality at its cutting-edge best.
Step inside the hotel’s imposing glass frontage and your first impression is of a friendly place, full of winning smiles and attentive ears – an impression which intensifies the longer you stay.
It’s not only the staff that make you feel like a VIP, it’s the décor too. The cool, sophisticated feel of the lounge reception is matched by the contemporary minimalism found in each room. The deep, sensual hues of dark wood and soft furnishings are offset by reflective mirrored artwork and expansive glass.
Bathrooms feature rainfall showers, even walk-in showers, and a high-tech approach extends to the futuristic TV and lighting controls. It’s impressive stuff.
But tear yourself away from the cocoon of your room to visit the hotel’s excellent mezzanine restaurant and bar. The plush ambers provide an informal warmth for a drink or a meal and the cuisine covers everything from world classics to outstanding Ukrainian specialties.
And if all that fine dining makes your body beg for a health kick then fear not – 11 Mirrors guests enjoy exclusive rates with the nearby Leonardo Wellness Club, an extensive pool, gym and spa that might just help you (re)discover your inner Klitschko.
