KievInn is really an apartment rental service, but they are excellent for the price and their location half a block from Maidan cannot be beat. I visited on 6/25/14 and was amazed by the protest encampment in the square- massive makeshift barricades and a tent city exist amid the grandeur of its post-Soviet architecture, and the many people there were very friendly and extremely happy for a foreigner to be present and photographing their situation (I am American). The apartment was HUGE for a $79/night flat, with a sitting room w/ couch and flatscreen, a very comfortable and large bedroom (also w/ flatscreen), and a well appointed bath room that even had a washing machine. Its location was a bit funky- you had to open a garage door to access it- but in the end this was an effective security measure, I suppose. A half-minute walk to Maidan! The reception was warm, and spoke sufficient English to accommodate me and to arrange for a taxi to Boryspil airport the following morning (250 UAH).
The ceiling in the flat was low by American standards-it was not a problem for me at 6'0", but someone of large stature might have an issue, especially in the shower.
