Just around the block is an updated, modern apartment that comes with a jacuzzi tub and its own sauna. This one-bedroom apartment can accommodate up to four people — but note that one couple would have to be okay with sleeping on a sofa bed. Sofa beds are a common feature of apartments in Kyiv and you can expect them to be as comfortable as sleeping in your own bed. You will find that the living room is often separated from the rest of the apartment and can make a comfortable additional bedroom for travelers. The apartment is centrally located but faces the inner courtyard of the building, so you can expect it to be very quiet.
