Dear Alexander:
I've got back home from the trip A-OK. I've enjoyed Ukraine and particularly your capital immensely. While I certainly had expected substantial changes since my last visit, their extent and scale have exceeded my wildest expectations. I regard your help with respect to both lodging and transfers as exceptional, and would strongly recommend it to any traveler to Kiev. In fact, I myself may be back to Kiev next spring, in which case I'd look forward to seeing you again.
Warmest regards, Alex Shvartsburg, Richland, WA, US

Dear Alexander,
I wanted to thank you and to thank your team for their courtesy and dedication in handling my trip to Kiev over the last two weeks. From the initial contact, I have had no doubt about the professionalism of your service --though one may have some legitimate hesitations in arranging a trip on the net. There has been no surprise and the timing of all has just been perfect. You have answered all the queries I have put through to you, have delivered all the paper documentation such as the invitation letter for the visa on time and there has been no bad surprise regarding the accomodation or other services you are providing. I most of all appreciated the possibility to pay by credit card --whether before to secure the apartment or even upon check-in hence reducing the risks associated with the carrying of large amount of cash. As you know, I had been to Kiev before through other organisations and had paid much more but I cannot say I have been as much satisfied as using your service. I would like to reassure potential customers or people surfing the net. There is no need to do the same mistakes as I did before. It is not because prices are higher on the net at other sites than Alexander's one, whether for accomodation or services, that you will get a better quality service as a customer. Actually, Alexander's service is probably the best quality to price ratio for one who wants to visit Kiev or Ukraine whether for private or professional reasons. Flats are all located centrally in a very nice and convenient area, furnished with style and care and all amenities are as described. There is just no bad surprise. And Alexander and his staff are only a call away, always trying to please the customer. Continue the good work, Alexander, and be sure I will market your service around me and use it again very soon. Thank you. Christian Alain Cuvelier, Paris, France.

Alexander, I want to thank you for being at the airport when I arrived last week from Seattle. I enjoyed my stay in Kiev very much. When I requested an apartment from you over the Internet I was concerned that the apartment would not be as good as it was described on the Internet. Your apartment was much better than described. I was very happy with how clean and comfortable it was. Julia and I did a great deal of walking everyday and the location of the apartment was central to those areas I wanted to see. Being close to good Restaurant, shops, ATM machines and transportation was also very helpful in making my trip memorable. I would highly suggest your service to anyone arriving in Kiev! Thank you and best wishes, Ron Lawton Olympia, WA US

I had to stay a week in Kiev for the organization I work for. At less the half of the price of an hotel I had a very nice and comfortable apartment in Pavlivska Street. This is a very quiet area. All the things you need, shops, restaurant, bank are only a few steps away from the apartment. The service that Alex provided was really very good, a very comfortable trip from and to the airport, and a very friendly and quick service if I needed something. Only one word : "Great". Vercammen Jos Kortenberg, Belgium

The apartment was great and the Kiev experience was made much more insightful by the insights provided by Alexander who was always there for me on his mobile phone with personalized service. Highly recommended. Mark Gilbert, Bethesda, MD USA

I just returned from a delightful 12 day stay in Kiev. It was wonderful! Alexanders hospitality and the comfort and convenience of my apartment at Kiev Hotel Apartments (Desyatinnaya Street) made my visit very enjoyable. Alexander was exceptionally patient with my many questions before I arrived, offering as much information as I needed. Though I didnt need his assistance during my stay, he provided me with his number and other useful telephone numbers in the event I needed help. Of course, being met at the airport and being transported to my apartment was a great service. If I return to Kiev, I will certainly call upon Alexander again. It is much more economical and comfortable than hotels. I highly recommend Restaurant Kniazhy Grad located adjacent to the Desyatinnaya Street apartment. Thanks very much, Alexander, for a very memorable stay. Julian "Woody" Woodson, Mechanicsville, VA USA

Just come back from Kiev - less than a week back, and I've already booked my next stay. Alexander provides a great service, and I have no problem recommending him to anyone else wanting to visit this wonderful country. Colin, Newbury, UK

In April 2002 we had a great 5 day holiday in Kiev, blue skies and sunshine. We were very happy with the accommodation and the information Alexander gave us. It's great to be met at the airport and taken to where you're staying. Having read in all the guidebooks that Kiev is "the most expensive city in Europe" we were delighted to discover the opposite was true! For a start, it's excellent value to stay in the apartments, then there's the wonderful self service restaurant Alexander told us about, and most of all several visits to the opera sitting in the front stalls listening to top class singers, we'd never have afforded that at Covent Garden! These were all unexpected bonuses to a city which lived up to and exceeded all expectations of grandeur. We certainly hope to return some day - maybe to take a cruise up the river next time. Thank you! Heather Bell and Brian Meagher 

We spent 6 days (and 5 nights) in Kiev and it was great. We spent all days walking through this very impressive city. A lot to see (catherdrals, builings, Iron lady) and to do (musea, opera). We liked it very much. The appartment was great. Especially were it's situated: in the heart of the old centre. The bedroomwindow looks out to St. Michael Monestry ! Alexander was very nice and told us interesting facts about Kiev. Thanks for your warm welcome and information. We liked it very much to stay in an appartment instead of a hotel. It's very recommendable :-) Bart Ensie, Utrecht, The Netherlands

I visited Kiev  and stayed at V.Zhitomirskaya flat, owned by Alexanders firm. The flat itself and the service in general were superior. I would definitely choose Alexanders apartments over any regular hotel on any day. Thank you, Alex for an excellent service

Hello Alexander! My second trip to Kiev and my second stay at Alexander's very nice Apartments. As before, my stay in Kiev was all the more pleasurable because I felt at home with the spaciousness of these apartments and the attention to amenities that most Westerners are accustom to, as well as the value and excellent location and convenience to everything a tourist in Kiev might want. Alexander's service is first rate and he shows exemplary professionalism with the benefit of his effort to help his clients with some friendly courtesies. I would recommend his apartments to anyone visiting Kiev. Jeff Evans. Charlotte, NC USA

Thank you so much Alex for your hospitality and the help you gave us while staying in Kiev. Your apartment was FIRST CLASS in all respects, a true home away from home. You will be the first person that I contact when I arrange my next trip to your beautiful city. Best Regards Austin and Irina. PS. Did you ever get a Golden Retriever? Austin Cooper, Vancouver, BC Canada

Dear Alexander it's been a long time Thanks for all maybe we see each other again someday Everything +++++! Inna and I Are very happy. Pieter Popken Bovensmilde, Netherlands

I recently spent 15 days in Kiev, During my search for a place to stay I came across Alexander's website and his Hotel/Apartment Service in Kiev. Upon my initial contact he was very fast to get back to me and answer all my questions. I must have drove him crazy with all the emails regarding particular items and if they were available. Again he was very quick to respond and answer all my questions in a very professional and positive manner. The apartment was everything he promised and then some. He was always available to answer any questions and make suggestion's. I would highly recommend Alexander and his staff to anyone looking for a nice, quit, inexpensive and safe place to stay. I will be going back to Kiev in the very near future and will be arranging my accommodations through Alexander again, that's if he has place available. I had a great time during my stay and really enjoyed the people and the city. Alexander I want to thank you for everything you done for me, including the ride to and from the airport, also for suggesting the Concorde Restaurant, we had a great time there, great food, great service, reasonable prices. You provide and impeccable service and I wish you and your staff all the best. I hope to see you soon again. Keep up the great work. Five stars + for Kiev Hotel/Apartment Service. Peter Brady, Edmonton, AB Canada

Kudos to Alex and Olga for the outstanding service and accommodations. The apartment are excellent and well sited. The value cannot be beaten. They provided access to and from Borispol, arranged to transport my fiancee, and passed along messages when there were e-mail problems. Every visitor to Kiev should use their services. Thank you!!!!! John John Shovelin, Mpls., Mn U.S.A

Just returned from Kiev after having used this service for the second time. Alexander provides the utmost in excellent service for his clients. Five stars! Daniel Ritchey Zanesville, OH USA

Western-standard studio in centre of Kiev! Answers and help are just a phone call away and service goes beyond what you advertise! meeting my girlfriend at railway station). Patrick Wellens Leuven, Belgium

I spent 16 days in Kiev. The apartment was excellent, Alexander and his staff are extremely efficient and polite. I will be returning in September or October this year and will be using the apartments again if possible. Brian Cartwright Bracknell, United Kingdom

I recently spent a week in Kiev. The apartments are an excellent value and very comfortable. Alex and his staff handled everything very professionally and reliably, including the arrangement of transportation and registration of my passport. I would definitely recommend Kiev Hotel Service to others planning a trip to Kiev.

The apartment was very nice. Thank you for letting my fiancee and her son into the apartment before I arrived. You were very helpful in everything. I enjoyed my stay in Kiev much more because of the help you provided. I will be back in Kiev and I will be sure to book another apartment from you when I come. Once again, thank you very much for every thing. Mickey Schofield Greenville, Alabama USA

Thanks, Alexander, for taking such good care of us during our visit. Your service was top-notch and very professional, and the apartment was wonderful. The apartment was clean, modern, centrally located in an upscale neighborhood, and inexpensive. The advice on your website was accurate and pertinent. The service you gave us was above and beyond. Your knowledge of and assistance with travel and money details was particularly appreciated. I expected Kyiv to be a city out of a George Orwell novel, and I was very pleasantly surprised: I felt safe, even alone at night. There was no evidence of crime or harassment. The residents of Kyiv were happy and polite, and fun to be with. There were shops and ATM's everywhere, that accepted all of my bank and credit cards. The local convenience store had excellent food and western drugstore items, and even stocked my favorite (and somewhat hard to obtain) brand of single malt scotch! Thanks again for a wonderful week, Alexander Paramonoff Alexander Paramonoff  Vancouver, BC Canada

The apartment was exactly as represented and well furnished for living and cooking. Alexander was very responsive when my flight connection was missed and the airline had to reschedule arrival in Kiev two hours later. I would definitely consider the service for a return visit. Bernard Lu Sacramento, CA USA

Alexander--thanks so very much for providing an excellent apartment and for that personal and professional touch which made my 10 day visit to Kiev very wonderful. I give you, your service and your apartment an A++ rating. My best wishes, Sandy. Sanford Mayshark Vashon, WA USA

Thanks Alexander for your very professional, courteous and prompt service. Your apartment was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely contact you again when I return to Kiev. Keep up the good work! Michael

Alexander, The Desyatinnaya Street Flats have the best location in Kiev, safe and centrally located. I wouldn't change anything. Thanks. John Miller Austin, TX

Alex, what can I say?? You were a godsend for my stay in Kiev. You helped me in many ways. I dont think I could have received the support you gave during my trip from anyplace else. It was very comforting to know that I could reach you at anytime on your cell phone (which I did many times ;-))) Thanx!!) With your excellent rates, very nice apartments, and 24 hr assistance, I cant see why anyone visiting Kiev, in need of lodging, would stay anywhere else. If any potential clients requests a reference, feel free to have them contact me at any time.  Thanx a lot Alex, see you again very soon!! Sincerely. Brian Grenier  Brian Grenier Tampa, Fl USA

Good morning Alex, I have the pleasure of working with you constantly during this past year, and you have always been top notch with your apartment selections and customer service. I want to express my special appreciation for your outstanding service in providing accomodations at the last minute during a very busy time period in Kyiv. It's a pleasure working with you on a professional level, and having the added bonus of being able to call you a good friend. Jim Bochneak El Segundo, CA USA

Hello Alexander! Thank you for providing excellent apartment in very good location. I had fantastic time in Kiev and will definitely recommend you to others! Matthew

I was recently in Kiev and rented a apartment from Kiev Hotel Apartment Service. The apartment was wonderful, it is very centrally located with plenty of access to shops, restaurants, and markets. The metro is only five minutes away, making transportation very easy and affordable. Taxis are also very easy to get, usually just outside the door. The apartment is very close to many interesting sites, and is located in the Historic District of Kiev, where many of the Embassies are. I found the services provided by  Kiev Hotel Apartment Service to be very helpful for a person traveling in the Ukraine. The service provided transportation from the airport and was very helpful in registering my visa, as required by Ukrainian Law.  Sincerely, M. Phillips,  Seattle,   Washington, U.S.A. 

I want to thank you again for your wonderful hospitality and for providing such a nice apartment to me during my recent stay in Kiev. I had previously stayed at one of the finest hotels in Kiev at over twice the price of your Desyatinnaya street apartment. In comparison, your wonderful apartment was much more comfortable, spacious, well equipped, fashionable, and quieter than the hotel I had stayed in on my previous trip. Consequently, I would never consider staying in a Kiev hotel again after the wonderful experience I enjoyed in your conveniently located apartment. I very much appreciated the airport pick-up  you provided which made my arrival  quite simple, and of course the value of this transportation even enhanced my satisfaction with the price and service of your accommodation. Also, I was impressed that taxi / bus service was not necessary during my stay in that everything was within easy walking distance of the apartment.  Sincerely,  Sam E. Johnston, USA

 Thank you for your hospitality and reliable services. Your  apartment definitely meets Western standard at the very central location. I have found that the area is safe that I can walk at night despite the darkness without much street light ! Most of all, I had a very pleasant stay in your apartment more than I expected. The radio taxi that you recommended was very honest, on-time, and good fare. I will definitely rent this apartment again on my next trip soon. You may put this email letter on your web site as part of my recommendation.  Ron Samabhandhu, Sunnyvale/ Silicon Valley, USA

Thank you for making our visit to Kiev such a wonderful experience! The apartment was spotlessly clean and beautifully located! We will be telling others about your excellent service.     Best regards,  Kim and Judith Pratt, USA

 I want to thank you for the nice quality of your apartment & services. It was the best apartment I ever had in Kiev! And the interpreter was good too. Until next next time. Sincerely, Herman Biesma, Netherlands

 Dear Alexander, I want to say thank-you for all your help in Kiev.  Our rooms were very nice and you were very helpful providing us with the VCR. If I am able to return to Kiev, I will call you first. You may use me as a reference if you like.  Thank you again,  Charles Fromal, USA 

My wife and I have stayed several times in Alex's flats - you can expect: attractive rates, large & well appointed Euro-standard suites with reliable amenities (one can grow weary of cold water showers in some other facilities!), full kitchen, washer/dryer, secure premises, and reliable service including airport pickup/drop-off. Also: internet access is relatively simple - at least the Desyatinnaya Street apartment has US style phone jack, one can get a prepaid internet access card at the local Pochta and plug in. On prior trips I had stayed at hotels, and suffered ruinous rates, insouciant abuse (oops, "service") at the grand old socialist-realist hotel you-know-what on Khreschatik. My comments are unsolicited - I recall nervously trying to get a reference the first time I braved the flat-for-rent alternative, so I thought I'd post comments -  (from Brama Ukrainian travel tips bulletin board).   Tom Miller, Vancouver BC Canada

I'd like to thank you very much for the excellent service you provided on our recent trip to the Ukraine and Kiev. Your accommodation and service was amongst the best I have ever experienced in any country and that includes, Canada, America, Australia, Russia, Italy and Germany!   Andrew Chambers-Skrynnyk,  New Zealand

Just a short thank you note for the wonderful accommodation during my stay in Kiev. As it is difficult for me to compare your apartments/hotel to the others, I must say I am impressed.  The area is very peaceful and cozy, yet close to the city. It is my opinion that most people will be as impressed as I am for its location and beauty. As for the apartment, it is spacious, very well maintained and if I may say the standards in which you operate are excellent. Also your assistance in transporting me from the airport was very useful. Thanks a million for the help with my banking needs. As for my closing note, I know when I make this trip again you will be one of the first people I call.  Douglas A. Simison,  Toronto, Canada

On my recent excursion to Kiev I took an apartment with Kiev Apartment and Hotel Service. This was my third trip to the city and I must admit I was most impressed with this Service. Although my arrival was delayed nearly two hours, Alex stood by to deliver me to my flat. The apartment was clean, well equipped, centrally located with no shortage of hot water. At no charge Alex volunteered to register my passport with OVIR......this included a health insurance policy! I would like to commend Alex for being so prompt, so courteous and his assurance that he is available 24 hours everyday for his clients was certainly reassuring. Thank you Alex for all your help.  C Thibeau    Palm Springs, Ca 

I have just returned home safely, from my journey to your country. I enjoyed my trip with great satisfaction. I met some very dear friends there and will be in contact. I want to thank you for your hospitality in your beautiful apartment, and also for locating my lost luggage. My Mother is now very interested in visiting in June of 2001.I will be in contact with more information for this date. Thank you again,  Sincerely,  Howdy Kirkbride, Fl
