SWISSOTEL to open luxury hotel in Kiev, Ukraine
The future Swissôtel Kiev will form part of the “Sky Towers”, a mixed use development comprised of twin towers of 34 and 47 storeys. Sky Towers is located in Peremogy Avenue, centrally positioned close to Kiev city centre and the main train station and is comprised of hotel facilities, serviced residences and grade A offices. The Swissôtel Kiev is anticipated to welcome guests for the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship and features 513 guestrooms and suites, 14 serviced residences, 4000 sqm of conference space, as well as a 3000 sqm SPA.
“Following on from our successful Russian hotel in Moscow, Swissôtel Krasnye Holmy, Swissôtel Kyiv will be another significant step for us in our expansion into Eastern Europe,” according to Meinhard Huck, President of Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts. “Kyiv is home to governmental ministries and authorities, but also to the mechanical engineering, aircraft industries, light and agricultural industries, as well as the state chemical industry. The Ukrainian metropolis is also one of the most important transport nodal points/centres of communication in Eastern Europe – an environment in which superior quality international hotel chains are still in short supply.”
The hotel is developed by local real estate development holding KDD Group.
