“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We stayed in the Eridan for 2 nights, as part of our 2 month roundtrip in Eastern Europe.

We traveled by car, and had to search for the hotel (thanks Google maps...). The hotel is in a pedestrian area, but I could park my car in front of the hotel, it should be any problem (at least I understood that from the part English, part Russian from the reception).

The hotel is pricey, as all of the hotels in Belarus. We got a big room (suite), that had plenty of room for the 4 of us. There is no elevator in the hotel, so be prepared to carry your luggage.

There is a certain smell in the hallways, I think it's from the kitchen damps that have got into the carpets :-) It's no problem, after a couple of minutes you don't smell it anymore.

We loved the decoration in the room and the hallways. A lot of items for the communist era, and also a lot of old things. I had to explain to my daughter what a typewriting machine was.

The staff is very friendly, but hardly speaks any English. As we don't speak Belarussian/Russian, it gave sometimes a little trouble.

We had a good time in this hotel!

Having checked out this hotel and the town Vitebsk, for sure, this is the best hotel in town. That said, it is of a reasonable quality and price. It is clean, friendly (only one employee speaks some English) and the rooms have been recently renovated. The location is also good - near some shops, some restaurants, the old part of town (also recently renovated) and a nice view of the river from a nearby park.

This is an old theme hotel with a difference. Situated in the old town part of Vitebsk in a convenient location it offers all and more than you could reasonably expect from a hotel. I stayed there for 12 days and all that I required was a good shower, comfortable bed, good food and friendly service. Eridan were excellent in all those areas. Housekeeping made my room immaculate every day, the waiting staff were always helpful, friendly and polite and the food delicious. The receptionists, Tatiana, Anna and Victorya were all fantastic and couldn't do enough for you and they all spoke English well. As someone who only spoke English, they were a lifeline for me and the Eridan should be proud of them. It made me so proud to see the Australian flag on the reception desk every day! Eridan made my holiday in Vitebsk so enjoyable.

Room Tip: If the beds good, the shower hot, the food to your liking and the service second to none, give it a...

not often I up the ante on reports but this is not as bad as previous reports suggest other than the lack of a lift although they did offer to take bags up later on. The place took some getting used to, it is hard to locate but our driver had a tom tom dropped us off within feet. The music from the cafe finished early, it seems to always stop around 11 in Belarus and even car horns seem to be very rare so good nights sleep. Restaurant was noisy with one family listening to karaoke singer, like all the other guests there we ate the same menu but in the bar area where the barman spoke English and it was quiet.
So all in all an ok hotel, rooms acceptable.

Room Tip: expect very little and you may be surprised that it isn't that awful after all

Great hotel, even famous, because many Russian and Belarus celebrities stay in it.
Located in the center, rooms are huge and for reasonable price! Hotel itself is decorated very nice and tasty.
Friendly staff.

The hotel is situated on the hill in the nice old part of Vitebsk. Very convenient for those travelling to see the Chagall museums. The service is good, the meals are delicious. Friendly staff. Big rooms. Quiet area.
