On June 7, we threw the ‘5 Years Milestone Party for Media’ marking the fifth anniversary of 11 Mirrors – Ukraine’s first and only award-winning design hotel.
Representatives of various media ranging from industry-focused to lifestyle sources were treated to festivities that featured an interactive presentation and gala-lunch offering our chef’s handcrafted creations.
A big surprise was prepared for the guests – they watched an exclusive digital-show live-streamed from the Elbe Philharmonic Concert Hall in Hamburg. Wladimir Klitschko, one of 11 Mirrors’ inspirers, held a breath-taking event to announce changes in his career and reveal strategy and future prospects of the KLITSCHKO brand.
11 Mirrors was introduced as a partner of the KLITSCHKO brand to the European audiences, in front of at least 200 attendees representing business, politics, media and sport.
Within five years, the innovative and daring project evolved to a high-profile Ukrainian brand – 11 Mirrors, the first and only New Luxury design hotel in the country. The following factors testify to its effectiveness and success.
Maryna Rymarenko, General Manager of 11 Mirrors and Partner for strategic development, investments and hospitality at DEOL Partners (11 Mirrors’ developer and operator): “Our professional team within 5 years made this homemade brand grow strong enough to compete against famous international chain hotels.”
The brand enjoys high levels of trust among its guests, which is confirmed by 11 Mirrors’ top rankings on TripAdvisor, Booking.com and Expedia. These ratings are based on travellers’ reviews.
Last year World Boutique Hotel Awards praised 11 Mirrors even with two titles of World’s Best City Hotel and Europe's Best Hotel. For the first time the Ukrainian hotel took part in such a prestigious international competition and won global recognition.
During these five years, travellers from 110 countries stayed at 11 Mirrors. Besides the United States, Australia, Canada, Europe and other popular destinations, the design hotel played host to guests from Iceland, Chile, Venezuela, the Vatican, New Zealand, Mauritania, Nepal, the Cayman Islands, Madagascar, Seychelles, and other countries.
11 Mirrors is the only hotel in Ukraine to join the world's largest loyalty program Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG). More than 180 million SPG participants, who visit Kyiv and choose to stay at 11 Mirrors, are able to enjoy exclusive privileges and benefits
11 Mirrors brings a new level of luxury to Ukraine’s hospitality scene. It is an unrivalled boutique hotel, which reflects guests’ lifestyle and inspires them to experience new emotions. It is the strong brand with its own philosophy and two extraordinary visionaries – Originals – behind it. One of them is an international entrepreneur Wladimir Klitschko, the other is the founder of DEOL Partners Ruslan Oleksenko.
Consequently, 11 Mirrors is considered a perfect destination for business leaders, lifestyle travellers and independent, creative people. It has been host to many celebrities, including Lady Gaga's favourite designer Charlie Le Mindu; American singer and stage actor Adam Lambert; Jared Leto and 30 Seconds to Mars; industrial designer Karim Rashid; Italian football manager Alberto Zaccheroni; cult Icelandic band GusGus; fashion designer Igor Chapurin; the world's most travelled man Fred Finn; Italian writer Alessandro Baricco; Japanese jazz composer and pianist Hiromi, New York-based graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister, Canadian playwright Michel Marc Bouchard; Ukrainian singer and Eurovision winner Jamala and many more.
