Designer hotels don’t come better than the cosmopolitan airs that permeate the atmosphere at the beautifully boutique 11 Mirrors in Kiev. Just steps away from the Opera House you can indulge in the best the city has to offer and always return to a divine retreat of lavish luxury. The charming hotel is true to its name with reflective surfaces, silvery flashes of mirrors and panoramic windows to let the light pour in.
Reflective minimalism is the name of the game and with natural stone walls, stainless steel ceilings and dashes of marble you can lose yourself in the calming ebb and flow of this chic hotel. With only forty nine guestrooms the delight is in the details. Imperial design has certainly been left on the doorstep and the rooms are a Zen inspired fusion of balance and beauty. Signature rooms steal their inspiration from the elements of air and water and jaw dropping old city views, plush kingly beds and a stylish in-wall TV that appears to be a work of modern art. Jetsetters seeking more when it comes to modernity and affluent space will adore the executive suite with its adjoining spaces carved out to give you everything you could ever wish for.
The bathrooms keep the weight of wonder with heated marble floors to keep your bare feet warm and glass walls that are the perfect dash of romance for couples, those seeking a little more privacy can pull down the opaque curtain. Boasting a spa inspired design with lots more marble and mirrors you can’t help but linger a little longer when it comes to soaking in the tub or going through your nightly rituals.
All rooms also offer guests the chance to relax and unwind with an incredibly fully stocked private bar. With an extensive choice of the finest cognacs, first class wines and whiskies from the wind swept corners of the world, there is nothing that compares to pouring yourself something special, wrapping up in the complementary robes, and watching the pulse of the thriving city ebb outside your window.
Classy cuisine is always on the menu in the boutique bliss of the 11 Mirrors. Breakfast is an institution with the classic continental being served in extravagant buffet style. Yet it’s not only flaked pastries and fruit on offer but incredible daring and truly unique plates to fall in love with. The baked apple with honey and nuts is a sweet moment that lingers on the lips and the daring poached egg with baked potato ice cream, piked caviar and milk dressing is something you surely won’t forget in a hurry.
Of course breakfast isn’t the only menu on the cards and the divinely fresh and modern restaurant also offers lunch and dinner. Exciting dishes with innovative appeal tempt the curious diner to explore with the lavender duck breast, mustard fruit pumpkin ravioli and cold asparagus cappuccino soup.
There is no doubt about it that 11 Mirrors in Kiev stands out as something truly sexy in the heart of the old city. Disconcerting travelers used to globetrotting to designer destinations will love the unique boutique feel, the evocative attention to detail and the feeling of walking through a living piece of art.
