Kiev is the capital of Ukraine

The city is located on both banks of the Dnieper river. This is an incredibly beautiful city with a long history, that's why it is especially popular among the tourists from the whole world. Mild temperate climate, the richest cultural and historical heritage, marvelous architecture, hospitable people, picturesque parks and squares which you can see in Kiev at every turn – all this attracts travelers of different categories.

Staying in Kiev will bring amazing experience and only positive emotions. Our service is useful not only for the tourists – any person who is going on a business trip to Kiev can find a suitable apartment with the help of our web-site.

Telephone calls

If you are calling from a city (landline) phone, which you may find in many of our apartments, and dialing a local city number, you need to dial the number without the state and city codes in such a format: ХХХ ХХ ХХ. In such a way, you can call a taxi or book a table at a restaurant.

Nowadays, when the market of mobile network is developing and prices are getting lower, the landline phones are rarely used.

There are several large mobile operators in Ukraine providing high-quality communication services not only inside the country, but also abroad. They are: Kyivstar, MTS, Life.

Mobile operators have been pleasing their users with low prices for over 10 years. For now, the price of 1 minute of speaking does not exceed 1 hryvnya (0,05USD), regardless the selected company. That's why we strongly recommend buying a sim-card of a local operator when you come to Kiev. Sim-cards for GSM mobile networks can be easily purchased in any shop or operator's brand store.
