Boutique Hotel Marks Debut for Design Hotels in Ukraine


The Ukraine keeps improving as a destination for hotel development: 11 Mirrors, the first member of Design Hotels in the Ukraine, just celebrated its grand opening in Kiev

The brainchild of Wladimir Klitschko and architect and designer Anatoliy Kirik and Marina Leo, we hear the hotel has a style that is "simple" and "timeless." The narrow 11-story building has a granite façade with glass doors that enter into to the lobby, where the natural stone walls, reception desk, floor and fireplace complement glass panels, a stainless steel ceiling designed by Kirik and artistic mirrored wall décor by the local Fomichev Brothers. The 49 rooms and suites all have large windows overlooking Kiev’s historical center as well as spa-inspired bathrooms and fully stocked bar areas.

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. Black and white backgrounds, wide panoramic windows, reflective silver mirrors and surfaces and ceramic decorations by majolica artist Taras Tkachenko give the hotel a sense of minimalism, while the amber-colored design bar serves as a nice entryway to the informal mezzanine restaurant and a fireplace warms cocktail-sipping visitors in the lounge.
