    Rip off time!

    I am sad to see that Ukraine is gearing up to rip off the football supporters big time! The hotels are escalting their prices to exhorbitant levels, and I see adverts here for tent camping plots for two persons at 98 Euros per night! I assume they are supplying the tent for the period?

    This kind of exploitative behaviour will do nothing to impress foreign visitors that Ukraine is a fair and decent country. Happily as I live in Ukraine most of the time, I know better. These "business people" deserve the contempt that I feel obliged to level against them, and I hope they are less succesful than they would wish to be.

      It's not only Ukraine that does that Gottno. It goes on everwhere all the time.

      When the Exxon oil tanker, "Exxon Valdez" hit the reef I was there renting a motel room while working in the oil terminal. We were scheduled to head out that very day. The waitress/desk clerk that was serving us breakfast informed us the the room rates were going up over $200 per night starting that night.
      Captialism at it's finest. If you want it you'll pay their price or do with out.

      Retirement sucks! You never get a day off!!!

        Ukraine leader orders end to Euro 2012 hotel price gouging

        By Associated Press, Friday, April 6, 9:05 AM
        KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s president ordered his government Friday to prevent hotels from charging exorbitant prices for fans attending the Euro 2012 soccer tournament.

        Some hotels in the four cities hosting matches are charging up to 10 times their normal rates. In the city of Kharkiv, beds in a hostel are going for €250 ($330) a night, according to the local organizing committee for the June 8-July 1 tournament being shared with Poland.
        President Viktor Yanukovych called on his infrastructure and economy ministers to ensure that hotel prices are brought to “economically grounded” levels. He did not specify how the order would be enforced.

        Officials of UEFA, the sport’s European governing body, have said that curbing hotel prices remains the biggest obstacle in organizing the tournament. Euro 2012 operations director Martin Kallen warned in February that very high prices in some hotels in Ukraine may give the country and the tournament a bad image.

        Critics say that price gouging will portray Ukraine as a greedy country and may hurt its tourism industry for years to come at a time when the government tries to boost tourism to help the country’s struggling economy.

        “This suicidal, below-the-belt business practice is targeting people for whom Ukraine is ‘somewhere in Russia,’ that is, the kind of people you’d want to win over for a return visit,” journalist Mark Rachkevych wrote in the English-language newspaper Kyiv Post. “It’s beyond greed, it’s lecherous.”

        Ukrainian officials recognize the problem.

        “Poverty breeds greed,” Infrastructure Minister Boris Kolesnikov said last month. “But we in the government will find ways of exerting influence on their business appetites.”

        It is unclear, however, how hotels will be forced to lower their prices in a free-market economy.

        “From our end we can only make recommendations. We cannot affect hotels’ price policies,” said Albina Krasnodemska, spokeswoman for the Euro 2012 organizing committee in Ukraine.

        I guess that they are really gouging! 10X is too much of a rate.

          After looking over the OP's links he's not being gentle with his prices either.

          98 Euro's for a regular 2 man tent and 201 Euro's for a deluxe VIP tent per night.

              Please have a look here:
              Apartments for rent in Donetsk
              Apartments for rent in Kyiv
              Apartments for rent in Lviv
              Many landlords do not book now and don't give any specific price for EURO 2012 period. But I believe if you'll start to request booking closer to end of May - they will do it and the price won't be higher than the sky

                    I won't be able to return to Ukraine until next winter. I own an apt. so unless we travel to Krim there is little need for us to look.

                      Cheapest accommodation should be using the night trains, when travelling anyway. You can buy them in specialized travel agencies or via german ebay.
