KIEV, February 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Foreign tourists depart from Kiev hotels en masse with the escalation of the conflict in the centre of the Ukrainian capital. However, because of the influx of reporters, a suite with a view of the Maidan Square is impossible to get.
The manager of the Hotel Kozatsky located right in the square told Itar-Tass that there are many vacant rooms in the hotel but the suites commanding the view of the Maidan Square are all occupied.
“Many guests have left but we are still open. Thing are quiet now but there is no telling how it will be in an hour,” she said.
The Hotel Ukraina in the Maidan Square happened to be in the focus of disturbances. According to media reports, snipers are in position on the hotel roof; dead bodies are stored on the ground floor. No bookings can be made in the hotel, an employee at the registration desk said.
Guests are leaving en masse most hotels located at some distance from the centre. “Only one suite is occupied on the whole floor. Almost all guests left in the past two days,” a hotel employee told Itar-Tass in a private conversation.
However, it is not easy to depart from Ukraine at the moment. Air tickets for the next 24 hours for the flights to Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna, Valencia are sold out. In the Hotel Lybed a receptionist refused to give information about the number of guests and their nationalities. “This is confidential information,” the receptionist said.
