Where to stay in Kharkiv

A major industrial center, Kharkiv mostly caters to business travelers visiting the city for only a day or two. Budget accommodations can be hard to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. Book ahead if you plan to stay near the city center, where elegantly furnished hotel rooms come with free Wi-Fi, secure parking, and access to safe deposit boxes. For something less expensive, check out the city's hostels, which offer small but tidy rooms with shared restrooms and common dining areas.
