Just opened in Kiev is a boutique hotel with a most unusual name, part of the individually owned Design group. Called 11 Mirrors, it offers luxury accommodation with just 49 rooms and suites.
11 Mirrors is ideally located in the city centre, in the very heart of old Kiev and is just a few metres from the National Opera House. The man behind the project is English speaking Ukrainian World Heavyweight Boxing sportsman Wladimir Klitschko, also known as “Dr Steelhammer”. He and his elder brother Vitali have also turned to politics.
All major historical sites as well as the best cafés, bars, restaurants, shops and art galleries are within easy walking distance from the hotel.
The narrow 11-storey building, with its austere granite façade, in fact dates from the late 19th century.
Visitors pass through glass doors to the lobby, where the natural stone walls, reception desk, floor and fireplace complement glass panels and a stainless steel ceiling. Instead of the heavy imperial embellishments often associated with the Ukraine of the past, contemporary simplicity and elegance prevail throughout the hotel’s interior design. There is an informal mezzanine restaurant. www.11mirrors-hotel.com
