As very traditional Christian Orthodox society, Ukraine is mostly not as much frowned and it is a conservative country especially for gays but in the capital city of Kiev you can find a few gay friendly bars and as well gay friendly hotels Lviv, a popular tourist destination.
Lesbian, gay, bisexuals, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Ukraine may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Noncommercial, same-sex sexual activity between consenting adults in private is legal in Ukraine, but prevailing social attitudes are often described as being intolerant of LGBT people and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for any of the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples.
Lviv is a city in western Ukraine, around 70 kilometers from the border with Poland. Traces of its Polish and Austro-Hungarian heritage are evident in its architecture, which blends Central and Eastern European styles with those of Italy and Germany. In High Castle Park, the mountaintop ruins of a 14th-century castle provide panoramic views of the city’s green-domed churches and the surrounding hills.

The bedrooms are very good , spacious with comfortable beds and good bathrooms . The restaurant and public rooms are delightful being decorated with William Morris and other Arts and Crafts design wallpaper . Furniture and paintings are well chosen too . The rooftop bar is a delight , providing a panoramic view of the Old Town of Lviv.

It is in easy walking distance to the centre of the old town and also lots of restaurants and bars at the back.
What a charming, beautiful, well appointed hotel, on a quiet street in the heart of just where you want to be in this lovely city. From the very first friendly welcome at check-in we knew we had chosen wisely. Every person working at the Swiss Hotel takes such pride in his/her work. The hotel is small, personal, with an eye to detail and so beautifully appointed and decorated with William Morris wallpapers and fabrics.
The breakfast was as delicious as the room was inviting and cozy, and dinner on the terrace, which we enjoyed twice, was delicious with an exquisite view overlooking the charming old town of Lviv.
