Is Kiev an expensive city to visit? Like most big cities it can be if you do not know what you are doing. What does it cost a day to stay in Kiev? It can be as little as $30 up to $500 a day depending on how and where you stay.
My first trip to Kiev I must have spent over $5000 in 7 days, it was not much fun. From the very beginning, I was taken advantage of by the taxi driver. I came to find out later just because someone says they are a taxi driver does not mean they are. It cost me almost $50 from the airport to my apartment hotel. Yes, they have these in-between places to stay called apart-hotel, actually, they are hotels in apartment buildings. This was $110 a day with no services at all, a very small room in a noisy building.
I was going to meet a girl I met online, she was real I thought before all the scamming started to happen. I met her the first night I was in Kiev, a very pretty girl from Armenia. Her family moved to Kiev when she was young.
We took a cab to a sushi place that was far from the city center. I believe it cost $100 for the cab ride and dinner. The next day we spent together seeing the tourist sites churches, monuments, and museums. She asked if a friend could meet us for dinner in the city? I did not mind at the time. We went to a place called Touch it was an ultra lounge. You could also order food that was very good but very expensive! Her friend ordered so much of everything for us to sample, nice friend. I think that bill came to just under $200 for drinks and food.
The next day we went to another expensive place, of course, her friend decided to come. When I looked through the menu saw the prices, I told them lets go to another place.
We went to Chateau a nice place that made their own beer, it is one of my favorites now. The girls were all of a sudden not so nice to me anymore! Anna said I have to leave I cannot be with you anymore. I ask why? She said I talked about you with my mom, her mother told her she can not date an American man. It was all because I would not let them take advantage of me any longer. Read More
