According to Daron Rose, managing partner of ArtBuild Hotel Group, “the development of the hotel market in Kyiv, Ukraine as a whole, depends on the economic situation and investment climate. The reality of 2013 significantly affected the development of the hotel industry and have led to "freeze" previously declared projects. Some hotels will of course be completed, but major qualitative changes won’t be occured in the market. Industry starts to revive only through creation of a favorable political and economic environment.”
