Classical Grandeur in the Heart of Historic Kyiv
Located in Podil district, one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Kyiv, the Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv was designed and constructed by Ukrainian construction company Masterbud, with interior spaces designed by Interiors International, also from Kyiv. Surrounded by majestic architectural landmarks including Kyiv Pechersk Lavra and St. Sophia Cathedral, this twelve-storey hotel provides breathtaking views overlooking magnificent golden domes as well as the impressively vast Dnirpo River.
The building’s classical silhouette and Baroque architecture blends seamlessly into its historic surroundings, even though the hotel was only completed in 2012. Meanwhile, the hotel’s interior features large, cinematographic spaces designed by Interiors International. The luxurious feel and spacious character of these spaces can be associated with a true grand hotel.
The total area of the hotel amounts to an impressive 47 518 square meters, lending a palatial feeling to the elegant and traditional design of the interiors. In addition to the hotel’s 258 rooms, including 59 suites as well as royal and presidential suites, the hotel offers a lavish variety of amenities. This includes the lobby, lounge and bar spaces, conference rooms, ballroom, spa and perhaps most notably an atrium restaurant topped with a stained glass roof, which creates a sense of loftiness and grandeur that defines the Fairmont Grand Hotel chain on many levels.
This sense of grandeur extends further to the hotel’s extraordinarily large guest rooms, starting from 40 square meters. The classical décor of the guest rooms is tranquil yet full of character thanks to the use of gentle lines and stepped reliefs repeated across all the spaces. The Hommage line by Villeroy & Boch aligns perfectly with these principles and has been used in the design of the bathrooms. Matched with natural materials, distinct patterns and elegant inserts of modern design, the traditional style of the guest rooms combines sense with sensibility and provides a feeling of comfort and luxury at the same time.
