The Champions League Final Experience Hotel Portfolio during the 2018 Final covered all types of hotels and categories from 3* to 5* with the centrally located flagship - Hotel Opera - the Team Hotel of Real Madrid!
Here is what some of the regular guests of ours wrote on their social media right after their return back home:
“After a long flight, we have finally arrived at the Borispol Airport in Kiev, picked up by smiling bilingual hostess holding a name plate with our surnames... one of those moments you are looking forward to and imagine when picturing in your head a perfect beginning of your trip!
Our executive car seamlessly took us to our hotel, right when we arrived rooms were ready and we managed to check in without any issues, after a short while and brief rest we have decided to go and explore the city a bit, since our hotel (“Opera was called”) was situated very centrally it was very convenient to have access to the fan zone and all the attractions Kiev had to offer!
Just when we walked down to the lobby, we realized there is only one way to get out of the hotel as the space what used to look like a lobby is now full of security, journalists and airport barriers separating spaces into narrow corridors allowing only for the one way traffic to the main exit.
Didn’t took us long to seek clarification, and after a short moment of confusion we were informed by our tour manager Elena that they had a surprise for us! :), judging by the amount of manpower in front of the reception we couldn’t guess what would that be, until that moment when our breaths stopped for a second - and we noticed Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid’s team walking through the main door – at that point our manager Elena with big smile on her face told us that we were staying in the official hotel of Real Madrid! – What an exceptionally planned experience! We were left speechless and became the biggest Real Madrid supporters - the old and new Champion of the Champions. Thanks for the unforgettable Champions League Final Experience!”
