History

“The purpose of my work was never to destroy, but always to create, to construct bridges, because we must live in a hope that humankind will draw together and that the better we undestand each other the easier this will become”

Alphonse Mucha

The great artist, decorator and graphic, Alphonse Mucha, inspired us to erect a place in his memory where everyone could feel the beauty, inner harmony and closure.

The mystery of the hotel is related to Mucha’s biography and his love affair with Ms Elena Darmostukova, who resided in the house, that used to be on this very place before Staro Hotel. Once they met each other at a fair in Paris, genoius artist fell in love with Kiev beauty Elena for the rest of his life.

All his works are remarkable in their own peculiar and unique way. In the centre of a painting there is usually a young Slavic woman in loose clothes, with a shock of thick long hair, that drowns in a sea of flowers. Sometimes she can be languid and mesmerising, sometimes misterious and graceful, sometimes haughty and fatal, but always charming, sweet and of impeccable beauty. Somehow the fair sex brought to immortal life by artist’s brush make an impression as if women are flying high in their minds and know nothing of world’s vanity. This is the memory of artist’s beloved one, and in order to have Elena in his heart forever he painted all the women to resemble her image.

As Mucha’s official biographer was his son, this love affair was kept under seven seals in order to keep a good name of Alphonse and Maruska, parents of the author.

Today we give you a unique opportunity to feel the touch of the power of true love, and fall into embraces of romantic and forever young Art Nouveau style.

Location

Staro hotel is located in the very heart of Kiev – Podil historical district, which is one of the oldest, thus one of the most interesting parts of Kiev for tourists.

Podil is situated at the bottom of Kiev, on the right bank of the Dnieper river. It is a place where the first drug store, the first aqueduct and the first higher education institution appeared in Kiev. In ancient times there were trade and craft centres, and now it is the business part of the city and a true gem for history lovers.

In this hotel I've stayed in the 6th time! And each time getting better! Excellent location! To the center by taxi 5-10 minutes depending on traffic, from the airport 30 minutes. Beautiful interior, cleanliness, air conditioning in the heat pleased, room service 24 hours - and all so tasty, but a bit expensive though some things. Special thanks to the staff and a great hotel! Every time there I want to go back and take in the hotel is better than the family, believe me. Special thanks to the girls from the reception desk. Cons far this hotel is not found. Good price-quality. Stay in August 2015, a trip type: a trip with friends

Let's go to Ukraine in a couple of years after the Euro. Never before had not stayed in Kiev. We decided to select and book a hotel online. Staro was the most suitable. Scraped together the money only for one night. The rooms are beautiful, made antique. Daughters rolled extra bed. Most of all, remember the breakfast, which was very rich, similar to breakfast at Turkish hotel with All Inclusive. The wife liked the burgers (even they were not just a sausage and cheese, as in other places). Metro to go away and it unfortunately also very memorable. But, despite this, would stop there again, because wife of the city's remembered from all that we have used in different countries.
