SOFITEL to open in Kiev, Ukraine
French hotel group Accor announced the opening of a new five star hotel branded Sofitel in Ukraine’s capital of Kiev. The new Sofitel Kiev Lyuteranska is situated right in the centre of the city of golden domes, a stone’s throw from the famous Opera house and Saint Sophia.
Sofitel Kiev Lyuteranska will offer 289 guestrooms including 31 suites, two restaurants, a bar, and a vast 1000 sq metre area with So SPA and So FIT. Seven modular meeting rooms and a ballroom complete the offer which targets business travellers. Its opening is planned for 2013. Other five star hotels scheduled to open in Kiev: Hilton (2013), Fairmont (2012) and Swissotel (2012). Recent hotel developments have been motivated by the UEFA European Football Championship (Euro 2012) which Ukraine will co-host together with Poland.
Future international Sofitel openings include: Frankfurt, Germany (2014) and Singapore (2013)
