Hotel Pripiat
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Pinsk
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Pinsk does not have an impressive hotel offer, but probably not so many travelers come there. Most of the tourist traffic is based on sentimental interest journeys of Poles (there are many remaining of Polish culture and the famous writer Ryszard Kapuściński was born there) and Jews (as this town was the important center of Chassidic movement). Hotel "Pripyat" is a huge post-Soviet building dominating over the picturesque bank of the River Pina, near the small promenade with stop of river boats. Some years ago somebody tried to upgrade this giant, but this transformation stopped in the middle of work. I stayed there two years ago, and since then not much has changed. You enter into the quite surrealistic reception hall, with grand piano standing in the middle (on the absurdly high pedestal), however to reach your room prepare for a long way. First you have to go to another hall with lifts, which is dingy but pink painted :-). Renovated rooms are located at the opposite to the lifts end of this huge, long building. So to get to the room, you have to walk about 100 meters through almost completely dark, stuffy, dirty, claustrophobic corridor, with not used rooms, which was not repaired since Gorbachev’s time, with some mysterious empty spaces on the way. If you remember the famous corridor scene from "Shining" by Kubrick and you are scary movies fan, you'll be delighted! But if you have a suitcase on wheels, be prepared for some unexpected thresholds. The rooms are quite clean (although two years ago my friend was in bed with lace stocking), bathroom rather neat. From the windows there are beautiful views of virtually the entire Pinsk. The breakfast is offered in the night-club with some pipe dance installments. Two years ago, the breakfasts were served, now there is a buffet, but the selection is rather weak - poached eggs, really tasty pancakes, a little choice cheese and vegetable, but no cold cuts (now in Belarus very expensive). Internet access - only in the reception hall (there are many comfortable seats), but for free and without the need for buying the Byfly or Beltelcom cards (what is common for most Belorussian not private hotels). In sum: as for a provincial city in Belarus – it can be, but for the Western traveler some aspects can be quite shockingly exotic twist.

Many of us don't stumble into Pinsk - we're here for a reason usually ! I found the hotel in a Belarus guide book and booked it through an agency but couldn't find anything about it. I even had to ask TripAdvisor to include it.

First things first - the hotel is currently being modernised. It is about 10 floors high and in a nice location in Pinsk.

I asked for a suite which cost about $90 per night. Expensive for Belarus but not bad for Western Eurpoeans.

I must have had the best room in the building. A lounging area, with flatscreen TV and nice bedroom and a bath with seprate shower and jacuzzi. And a fridge etc

The place is being modernised and I would recommend it if you have the same room as me. Although I saw lots of rooms unrenovated and probably cheaper.

One important thing is the breakfast in the restaurant. It was fantastic with plenty of options and I especially liked the yogurt/cheese filled pancakes.

I would stay there again - no problem
