I have rented from Simon on previous trips to Kharkov. He and his staff provide excellent pre-arrival and post-arrival care. His flats always match the description and photos as advertisez on his site. Kultura 22b is in an ideal location. A very short walk to metro Naukova and for those with more energy, a slightly longer, but short, walk to the city center. A nice market, Spar, is at the metro.
I arrived prior to the recent elections. Kharkov was calm prior to that event and remains calm now.
Dining tips: the nearby Dublin Pub does not have an English menu. That applies to another pub relatively close by, Fat Goose. Fat Goose is nice but there simply is no English menu.
To sum up, regardless of which flat you choose, you will have a comfortable, clean, well appointed flat and you will be well cared for by Simon and his staff. Plus
