“Great location.”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

This place is in a great location. Access to the metro is right outside. Breakfast has a lot of choices for even the picky eater. Our second night there we had to check out very early to catch our flight out and they packed each of us a big breakfast to go. The didn't skimp at all. It was very thoughtful considering we left way before the normal breakfast hour. Rooms are small but perfectly clean and accommodating. Make sure you ask for an air conditioned room. Not all are and our last night was unbearable due to the heat.

Nice hotel, very nice service at the reception desk.
Wide range of food for breakfast.
Minus is only 3h free internet which was very slow anyway.
Pub, restaurant, casino, exchange money - all in hotel building.

spent 10 GREAT days in Minsk during hockey Worlds and we stayed in this hotel.
I had a car, so we really enjoyed the great location - minutes to Arena, to the downtown, ...
breakfast buffet was much better on weekends (because of more russian tourists?!) - sometimes they just run off cornflakes, eggs, vegetables, ...
there's almost nonstop bar nearby close to metro, spent few late evenings there ;-)
front desk women we very helpful,
and don't be surprised with a total bill of millions and millions for a longer stay

Room Tip: ask for not smoking room !!! rooms on the south side are very sunny in the mornnings

I spent one night in the 8-th of March while waiting my flight to Amsterdam.
Room was cost 750 000 Belorussian rubles which is some like 75-80 USD.

It took half an hour to get there from Airport on taxi.

Quite good furniture, doors, locks, bed and bathroom.
Also a breakfast (swedish table) wasn't bad - not excess but quite eatable and useful.

Also they have a rooms for smoking people.

Reviewed 27 February 2014

the rooms are clean, have all necessary amenities including even a small refrigerator in the room, free Wi-Fi (up to 3 hours a day for free, then you need to pay) but it works with many interruptions and you have to login again (and the login procedure is a pain).

the only thing I would highlight as a real disappointment is a breakfast, which was not too fresh and with weird food choices (like grilled chicken parts, etc).

This hotel is a good choice when visiting the Capitol City of Belarus. The rooms are classic soviet style. A little small in many cases, but, they are clean and comfortable. There are staff people at the front desk who can speak a little English. Certainly enough to be helpful. There is a Breakfast Buffett which has a wide variety of selections where you will find something to satisify your breakfast needs. The hotel is centrally located with shopping nearby. Also there is a Metro stop right next to the hotel which makes it easy to access other parts of the city. Overall, a good place to stay with reasonable prices.

Reviewed 13 October 2013

This hotel was recommended to us by our Belarusian colleagues, as their office is on the same street as the hotel. The hotel was surprisingly good despite some of the negative reviews. The cigarette smoke was not so evident, so hotel management must have done something about it. The double room was big enough with a separate bedroom from the living room. There is also a refrigerator ideal for self catering. There was a cupboard with plates, glasses and cutlery as well. I requested for a non smoking room and I was pleased since for most Former Soviet Union Countries, a non smoking room is non smoking when no one smokes in it.
The hotel, although, not central, it is conveniently located near a metro station, so getting to the center is only a few minutes. There is a big shopping center, but only one decent restaurant nearby. The breakfast is adequate, and you will not leave the breakfast room hungry although hot and heavy meat and fish dishes may not be your cup of tea early in the morning. There are other items to choose from. Wifi is free, but remember that there is a limit per day. Remember to log off and get a new password if you have run out of minutes the next day. This is a hotel, which lives up to its name - a good value hotel for business and pleasure. The service is efficient, specially reception staff, who did their best to make us feel welcome. Definitely, a hotel I would recommend for future visitors of Minsk.
