Arrival/Check-In: The Leopolis Hotel, nestled in the heart of Lviv, Ukraine, is a 5-star boutique property perfect for business or leisure travelers. The lobby is on the smaller side, with a limited seating area, but the hotel itself felt spacious. I arrived with a group of four and, despite a one-person manned front desk and the multiple check-ins concurrently, it only took a few minutes to retrieve my room key and head up to my third-floor deluxe guestroom.
Guest Quarters: My two-night visit was jam-packed, which didn’t afford me the luxury of spending much time in my guestroom. If I’d had more time to enjoy the accommodations, I know they would have proven comfortable.
A king-sized bed flanked by nightstands sat opposite a desk, above which a TV was mounted. A small sitting area occupied the corner near the window. The décor, neutral colors and clean lines, offered a soothing palette and allowed for natural light to stream through the windows. A marble bathroom rounded out the offerings in the 290-square-foot room.
Other room features include plush bedding and linens, complimentary WiFi, window black-outs and a minibar.
Services/Amenities: This boutique hotel packs a lot of punch with its amenities and services. Guests can spend an evening at the Cigar Lounge or enjoy fine dining at Leopolis Restaurant, off the lobby and boasting a menu of modern Ukrainian cuisine. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the restaurant one morning. Four tables on the Rooftop Terrace offer a beautiful view and an exclusive dining experience. Rounding out the culinary offerings are On Shevska, serving homemade pastries, coffee and business lunches; Summer Terrace, serving breakfast and cocktails when weather permits; the lobby bar, Hartwall Bar; the Library, where you can enjoy an evening cocktail by the fireplace or host a business meeting; and a cozy patio hideout. Room service is available 24/7.
The Spa is open daily 10 a.m.–9 p.m., and the modern gym also offers personal trainer services.
Three different conference spaces — Leopolis Hall, Karelia and Inkerman — can host events of all types up to around 250 people. The staff at Leopolis can also provide ancillary services including flowers, music and entertainment, menus and invitations and photographers.
◆ You cannot beat the location of Leopolis Hotel, right in the center of Lviv’s historic area and just a few minutes’ walk from many of the city’s best sights, including Market Place, Opera Theatre and Vernissage.
◆ The luxury hotel’s boutique size — 72 guestrooms, including three suites and three Superb Executive suites — gives your stay an exclusive, private feel.
◆ The hotel offers first-class car, VIP minivan or bus transfers to and from the airport, a nice perk for business travelers.

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
