If you want to have a great stay in Lviv for the weekend or for few days, the best place to live in would be to find
nice private apartment in the center of the city. In order to find suitable price or best options ask friends
and “friends of friend”s, they will definitely have phones of owners of one or two flats they stayed in Lviv.
If you don’t get contacts of owners, professional agency will be of great help as they can do search and
choose several flats following your requirements. Thus, you can save time, get somebody representing
your interests, doing all negotiation works and visiting the apartments instead of you no matter what
the weather is (Just look how snowy this winter is in Ukraine!) You’ll get what you need for affordable
amount of money.
My general recommendation is to ask for photos of all rooms in apartment itself, bathroom, and
corridor out of apartment as well as view from the window. Good condition of shower and repaired
entrance to the flat will make your stay more pleasant. Other question to rise is: 1) to make sure flat has
all appliances your needs during your stay (dryer, kettle, washing machine, boiler, heater etc.) 2) make
sure that all bathroom accessories will be provided; 3) ask owner whether she/he can provide cleaning
services if you stay for more than two days; 4) ask for the late check-out. This will make your choice well-
Check from agency about possibility of guided excursion in the city as every house in the center has its unique
story probably as well as the house you will stay in.
Taking into account upcoming Euro 2012 championship you should do the search and booking of the
flat much ahead your planned day of stay.
