You can walk it from Maidan (Independence Square). The "A" marks the premises.

Does google maps work in Ukraine if so, what about the directions feature?

Yes, it does but cannot be relied upon - they actually mention that much. Check the attachment and you will see they do in fact have a point!  :D

Interesting that the route shown goes past at least 2 places that sell Guinness...

Then I rate Google Maps Kiev:   EPIC FAIL.     Unless you can have the establishments that have Guinness pop up on the map like Starbucks...

No problem. I am assuming you're driving rather than walking. The directions on the left go off the screen.

I am sure anybody who has been to the U.K. Visa Application Building will agree,it is where the 5 is on this map.
There are seats opposite the Entrance,
but even if You are accompanying the applicant as a UK Passport holder yourself,Security will Not allow you into the Building.
