About Bed & Breakfasts in Ukraine
Bed and breakfast accommodation in Ukraine is quite uncommon. The accommodation options in the second largest European country are limited and include mainly hotels in the largest cities and tourist centers, holiday apartments and flats. During the past few years Ukraine has developed a good hostel network, however, guest houses and bed and breakfast properties are very limited and not quite like the typical B&Bs in the other European countries. At present Ukrainian bed and breakfast properties may be found mainly in the large cities in the form of separate rooms in private apartments or town houses. In smaller location and tourist sites there is a possibility to fine a bed and breakfast in one of the typical countryside farm houses, which impress with their picturesque architecture and decoration. However, a Ukrainian B&B shares something in common with original bed and breakfast properties throughout the world - home-like atmosphere, affordable rates, delicious breakfast.
