The main problem of preparation for Euro-2012 is the complete lack of hotels to accommodate visiting soccer fans. Authorities promise to provide potential investors to build new hotels with all necessary facilities but seem that nobody wants to invest money in Kiev’s estate. And indeed – there are too much bureaucracy in real estate sphere. Ukraine relies on foreign investors but they are faced with serious difficulties. “The man who wants to build a hotel must gather 250 signatures in different instances. Land acquisition takes about 200 days and 300 days spent for the design. At least a year takes the construction itself. All this is very difficult for foreigners ” – said President of the Small hotels and apartments association Dmytro Zaruba.
Realizing this situation and not being able to finance the construction of hotels, the state went the other way – and pays attention to private traders dealing daily rent apartment Kiev. In the project “Gostynna Oselya 2012” (“Friendly Housing 2012”) Government negotiates with the agencies and agents that providerent apartment services on an ongoing basis. This project not only offers accommodation to foreign guests, but also a full range of services, including transport, food and hotel service. Now organizers negotiating with the Polish side so there is possibility that the project will become international. For now only there are about 5000 daily rent apartment beginning from studios on the outskirts to luxury suites in the heart of the city. Authorities considers the creation of database in which will be all rent apartment Kiev of the appropriate level of accommodation.
Approximately 80% of fans are looking for cheap accommodation and hotels in Kiev, mostly level 5 *, besides Kiev takes 35 place in the world’s most expensive hotel services. And in the sphere of daily rent apartment Kiev guests will be pleasantly surprised – unlike in Europe, Ukraine, the cost of apartment Kiev in two and even three times less than the price for a hotel room. UEFA Commission, inspecting the readiness of Ukraine to Euro 2012, visited Ukraine in June of this year.
So in 2012 we should expect serious recovery in the market of daily rent apartment Kiev cause practical and enterprising Europeans and Americans will not miss the opportunity to save their money.
