From the buzzing capital of Kyiv to the cultural hub of Lviv and the wilderness of the Carpathian Mountains, Ukraine has a wealth of places to visit. Since its days behind the Iron Curtain, the hotel scene has evolved from state-run, basic digs to swanky boutique spots and luxurious country mansions. Whatever your taste in hotels, you’ll find something that suits you in Ukraine.

Bankhotel, in Ukraine’s metropolitan city of Lviv, retains the grand staircases and marble details of its previous life as an Austro-Hungarian bank building. The vaults are now the fine-dining restaurant Safe and a moody wine bar can be found on the seventh floor, where the wine spans decades and continents. Standard rooms are a sumptuous medley of Italian furniture and jazzy, ’60s-style, geometric wall features; suites from the junior to the presidential retain corniced ceilings and round rooms.

In a quiet green suburb of Kyiv, a stay at Favor Sport Hotel comes with a delightfully low price tag. It’s near the university, the international airport and the beautiful expanse of Holosiivskyi National Natural Park. Spend days exploring the forest steppe, walking trails and lakes of the park before returning to this casual hotel. The entrance is a welcoming space with a quirky, tiled reception desk. Standard and business rooms offer twin and double accommodation; the option to stay in a single room also makes this an ideal choice for solo travellers.

On the outskirts of Vinnytsia, this lavish hotel is set in pretty grounds. A Japanese bridge crosses an emerald stream at the front of the hotel and the terrace overlooks manicured lawns. An outdoor pool provides a place to cool off in the hot summers of inner Ukraine. The rooms themselves feature decor fit for a Tsar, with circular beds in some of the suites, jacuzzi tubs and walk-in wardrobes. It’s 6km (4mi) to the centre of Vinnytsia, but there’s plenty to keep you occupied onsite – billiards in the bar, a gastronomy restaurant, tennis courts and a wellness spa.

This boutique hostel in the seaside city of Odessa radiates history from its exposed walls. Set around an ivy-dappled courtyard, the tall wooden doors lead to an indoor labyrinth of quirky rooms and eclectic decor – think travellers’ suitcases as coffee tables, and tubas and vinyl records on the walls. Arched stone rooms and chandeliers give a Medieval feel and accommodation covers all budgets, from a bed in a shared, mixed dorm to a private room with two queen beds and an ensuite. There’s a friendly cat that hangs around the courtyard, too.

    No trip to Ukraine’s cultural capital, Lviv, would be complete without staying in an edgy art hotel. That’s exactly what you get at !FEST Hotel. The !FEST company began life as a summer cafe in one of Lviv’s lively squares, before branching out into innovative restaurants and craft beer brewing. Now, the !FEST hotel represents everything the three entrepreneurs stand for – individuality, open-mindedness and a little pinch of revolution. You can feel it in the snappy, graffiti-style decor of each room, and the industrial-chic of the onsite bar. Having its own craft beer brewery means a bottle of hoppy IPA or Lviv craft lager sits alongside the complimentary water in every room, too.

The rooms and apartments inside are blissfully spacious; some come with private balconies. Everyone can take advantage of the gardens, where a peaceful gazebo provides some shade for loungers. It’s the decor that really steals the show here; chandeliers twinkle above dining tables and art nouveau ceilings swirl with coloured glass in the bedrooms. A continental breakfast provided by the super friendly hosts is all you need to set you up for the day.
