Kiev has about 2,800 hotel rooms in the major three-, four- and five-star hotels, while between 2,700 and 3,200 people can be expected for next year's Eurovision Song Contest. Esctoday.com found this out after some brief research.
Three-star hotels are Tourist (522 rooms), Ukraina (375 rooms), Kyiv (190 rooms), Rus Hotel (378 rooms), Kreschatik (144 rooms) and Lybid (277 rooms). This means in total, there are almost 1,900 three-star rooms in Kiev. Four-star hotels are Dnipro (192 rooms), President-Hotel Kyivskiy (341 rooms), and Natsionalny (73 rooms). Thus, there are about 600 four-star rooms.
Five-star hotel Premier Palace (289 rooms) has 22 standard rooms, 9 twin rooms, 63 superior rooms, 45 king rooms and 5 business junior suites. All rooms are equipped with Satellite TV, an electronic lock, personal safe deposit, heated floor, hermetically sealed windows and doors, individually controlled heating system, air-conditioning, mini-bar, telephone and access to the internet.

1,900 three-star rooms, 600 four-star rooms and almost 300 five-star rooms are available in Kiev, but it's unlikely they are all available at the time of next year's Eurovision Song Contest. Between 500 and 1000 delegation members, 2,000 journalists and 200 foreign technicians can be expected, which means that 2,800 hotel rooms is not enough…
Kiev's City Administration is searching for a solution for the hotel capacity problem.
Addition: taken into account that most people have a room for themselves, 2,800 rooms is not enough. Taken into account that 50% of the people shares a room with someone else, there is still a capacity problem.
