Reviewed 31 July 2014

There are 2 hotels with 1min walk within each other - Victoria 1 opened 2 years ago, and Victoria 2 opened this year.

I tried Victoria 1 (the older one) a few times, and was happy with everything. Last time I decided to try Victoria 2 (same Price), but I was dissapointed.

Reception is fine, no complaints at all. Rooms are new, but still too smelly from Building materials.

Restaurant waiters are EXTREMELLY unexperienced and young.


Hotel has a pool, but as a guest you are only allowed to use it until 11AM in the morning. If you are travelling on business you for sure don't have time in the morning.

All in all this place needs to run for some time before it becomes an excellent place to stay. I will go back to Victoria 1 Next time again.

View from the hotel is to the main park and president Palace. There is a shopping mall within 7min. walk. Try the susi restaurant on the top floor - it's cheap and good, but be prepared that they don't have an English menu, so you'll have to improvise.

Room Tip: all rooms are new, I would take a room away from the street though.

The location is really good, that is only reason why one should book a room from the hotel.

Breakfast was not that good, not so much fresh options. Greasy stuff.

There were not so many guests during our stay, anyway the hotel was quiet. A lot of staff, with intermediate English skills.

Room was really basic three star room. There was cattle and one teabag plus one coffee in a room for two, and when we had used them they did not brought new ones. Blanket was really thin and lousy.

The hotel is situated on the edge of the old town overlooking Independence square. The rooms are comfortable, tea and coffee is provided in the room. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The dining room for breakfast is great, large tables, heavy chairs and lots of space, the breakfast was also excellent. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful and there is a 24 hour money exchange booth in the foyer along with an ATM machine. You can change Belorussian roubles back into dollars or euros but will need your passport to do so, there is no such requirement to buy roubles.The bar area in the foyer is a little depressing but that is a minor point. .

Service was excellent. I called for an iron and 2 to 3 minutes later a woman appeared with one. I said I had problems with the safe, 5 minutes later someone was there to help.

Everything was dated. The mattress was too soft/a bit lumpy.

The included breakfast, was, well included - and that was about the best I could say for it.

My organization usually books this hotel for our business trips and I'm completely happy with it! First - great location, very close to the main places of interest, underground shopping centre Stolitsa, where you can find everything Belarus is famous for - souvenirs, cotton clothes, chocolate, vodka, etc.On the opposite there is a main post-office - don't miss the opportunity, send some postcards with philatelic stamps (the choice is really impressive!!!), they have even maxi-cards (cards with matching stamp on the front).
Second - the hotel is very quiet, in the room you have 2 bottles of water, tea/ coffee (free), a kettle, a bathrobe, a sewing kit.
Third - abundant breakfast. I was really surprised by champagne (WOW, Belarus starts becoming Europe, not USSR!). Porridge, good variety of pastry, salads, etc.
Very good quality hotel.

Good location, right in the center of the city. Good service, clean rooms and adequate bathrooms. Decor a bit outdated, TV with a very small screen. Breakfast acceptable but not great. Crowne Plaza has much better breakfast. Gym tiny. Overall - acceptable place to spend a couple of nights but nothing spectacular.
