History of the Lybid Hotel
The hotel was opened on December 25, 1970. At the early stages of construction, it was discovered that the construction site area was located where the groundwater that flows into the Lybid river appeared to be just below it. 250 twelve-meter piles had to be driven in order to lay the foundation properly. In 1976, during an earthquake with a magnitude of close to 3-4 points with the epicentre being in Romania, the hotel was subjected to its first real test and passed it with flying colours.
The hotel received the name of Lybid. The name of the hotel is closely linked to the history of the capital of Ukraine. In honour of the woman founder who became the legendary symbol of the city, the hotel was named after her, and the facade of the building was decorated with a bronze high relief depicting Lybid. The hotel interior is famous by its mosaics. There is a wall with five mosaic panels of the artist A. S. Kyrychenko. They were made in 1977 and show the historical events of Kyiv.
As a component in the structure of VAO Intourist (the All-Union Joint Stock Company Intourist), the Lybid hotel was mainly focused on the reception of foreign citizens. However, the specific Soviet character & charm where felt to an extent at this hotel as well. In the 70’s, the Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, held a press conference at the hotel. Many guests from the United States and Canada were among the Ukrainian Diaspora who came to see the homeland of their ancestors. Another interesting fact is that many Dynamo Kyiv football players celebrated their weddings at this hotel.
In 1986, the hospitality and goodwill of the hotel Lybid staff were awarded by the International Association of Hotels in Europe with presentation of the Oscar International Award. In 2016, the Lybid hotel replenished the collection of the Ukrainian hotel operator Premier Hotels and Resorts and received the name Premier Hotel Lybid.
