The Senator chain, developed and operated by DEOL Partners, adds another trophy to its collection.

The 27th World Travel Awards recognizes Senator Victory Square as Ukraine’s Leading Serviced ApartmentsOur property has won the so-called Oscar of tourism. Senator Victory Square was named along with other World Travel Awards winners during the online ceremony on 2 November.

Graham Cooke, Founder, World Travel Awards, says: “Our winners represent the very best of Europe’s travel and tourism sector and my congratulations to each of them. They have all demonstrated remarkable resilience in a year of unprecedented challenges.”

Maryna Leo, CEO of Senator Hotels and Apartments, Partner at DEOL Partners: “Winning a World Travel Award is incredibly special, particularly this year that marks the 15th anniversary for Senator Hotels and Apartments. Senator City Center opened its doors in 2005 and gave birth to Ukraine’s first chain of professionally managed serviced apartments in downtown Kyiv. Senator Victory Square, the second property of the chain, has a fascinating history spanning a period of over 150 years. The original house dates to 1870 or even earlier. In 1912, a residential property was built on its site. It was a historical prototype of serviced apartments.

Thus, Senator Victory Square pays tribute to the century-old hospitality traditions and follows all modern hotel trends to continue its development. The World Travel Award is a proof that we are firmly dedicated to doing just the best. We also consider the prospects of expanding the chain and analyse new properties that might be part of the Senator brand. Despite the COVID impact on international tourism, the service apartment segment shows stability”.

Located in a prime business district, Senator Victory Square is an ideal place for business executives and their families looking for a work-life balance.

Viktoria Tokalska, Resident Manager at Senator Hotels and Apartments: “We are privileged to be recognised by the World Travel Awards for our continued commitment to creating the ultimate guest experience. Since its opening, the Senator chain has cemented its position as a leader in the apart-hotel segment. We owe so much of our success to our amazing team, to their hard work and sincere desire to make our guests feel at home”.

We are proud to add that all three properties of Senator Hotels and Apartments enjoy popularity within and beyond Ukraine and keep holding top positions in Booking.com and TripAdvisor ratings.

When guests choose our apartments, they are confident that they will receive warm welcome and excellent services with comfortable amenities.
