Our Apartment in Kiev: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/17757878
We were nearby, in terms of short walking distance, many great restaurants, pubs, cafes, malls and grocery stores. It was just a short walk from the metro station and we felt safe and comfortable in our neighborhood. The apartment itself had huge ceilings and was very spacious but definitely had a faded 70s and 80s vibe in terms of the furniture, kitchen and bathroom. This we found kind of fascinating and since everything was functioning just fine it was actually kind of cool.

Ukraine Apartment Tour in Kiev video transcript:
Well, hello there. What are we up to today? We are up to an apartment tour here in Kiev (Київ). Yeah. We're going to show you yeah our Ukrainian apartment that we've been staying in for just over a week. And it is right behind through that arch. Yeah, and we're on a beautiful street. Yeah, we really are. Like check out these buildings. It looks like it could be it looks like it could be in Paris or Buenos Aires. Like it is pretty amazing. Alright, so let's watch for traffic and lead the way. I'll follow you.
Well, here is the building. Lots of construction happening as you can hear. This building is not quite as nice as the one that we just walked by. You can tell that is has got a bit of faded charm here.
A little bit rundown on the outside but it is quite nice inside. We are only on the 2nd floor, which is a nice surprise.
Okay, so time for the tour. We've just come in through the main door and first up is the bathroom. Is the bathroom. We may as well show you the bathroom.
We've got a tub and a shower. You kind of have to climb into this tub. It is pretty high. More than what I am used to. Yeah, the shower is perfectly adequate. I wouldn't say it was my favorite part of this apartment. Like it did the job but um it was okay. It wasn't huge.
And moving on to the rest. What have we got? Sink. Toilet. A washing machine which is always super exciting. That is mandatory. That is a must for us now in an AirBNB. We need to have a washing machine.
The most exciting part for me is just the sheer size of this place. This is a big a nice big apartment.
As you'll see. Tada. This is our living area. And we've got some lovely teal couches going on. Yeah. Bit of a retro vibe. Definitely a retro vibe. Maybe stuck in the 70s or 80s slightly.
If you come this way we've got our kitchen. We have another table with some chairs and little stools. We have like our coffees and our little snacks here.
So I do a bit of cooking here. I just made pasta but look at these pots. Oh yeah. They are like some heavy duty like old fashioned pots. And this kitchen also has like a super 70s 80s feel to it too.
Yeah. Check out that. Check out the microwave. Green. Yeah, green. I think there is green color reminds me of vintage I don't know why. Yeah, I don't think this color is so popular anymore. A big fridge.
The bedroom. Come in the bedroom.
We had a really nice big bed. It was really comfy.
final thoughts about this apartment here in Kiev (Київ). We really liked it. The location was fantastic. It was quite central. We were nearby like metro stations. We were nearby parks, restaurants, bars and cafes. Also the other really cool thing was the price. It was in the upper 20s like just under $30 US dollars.
we really liked the city and we would have liked to stay in Kiev (Киев) a little bit longer. 1 week flew by. Bye.
