This isn't western luxury, but nor is price. It's a comfortable well situated hotel with helpful staff, including door guy with big soviet hat. Good choice for breakfast. Bar open all night with room-off strip club. Sorry, didn't try it -maybe next time!

The hotel is ok. Me and my colleague were staying for 3 nights in single rooms on the 5th floor. Rooms seemed to be refurbished few year ago. There was mini bar, TV, electronic clock, but no hair dryer or coffee/tea sets in the rooms. I should say there's not enough plug-in sockets in the room as the existing ones... More

This hotel is in a typical Soviet building, opposite a nice park in Minsk. There are a few restaurants and bars in the hotel (including one advertising striptease), with food of rather average quality (including the breakfast). The rooms are situated on long dark corridors and a bit worn out. The reception staff were brisk, spoke little English but seemed... More

I stayed here in business in 2011, on my first visit to Minsk. Though certainly not a hotel I would recommend for its quality, I found it strangely interesting, and I would stay he again. It's a typical Soviet-style building as other reviews have said. Rooms are basic, breakfast was basic and the staff were pretty charmless. However, the location... More

I wanted my teenage son to sample what the Cold War had been about so took him for a weekend in Minsk. Deliberately chose this hotel because it was said to be a Soviet classic. Hotel Planeta didn't let me down.Men in dark suits sitting around in reception with no apparent purpose other than watching the guests,a breakfast free of... More

You most likely do not exspect a first class hotel for this price but in comperrion to other hotels in this class there is a lot of potential for improvement. The positive side is the staff who is helpful and attentive. on the more negative side . the hotel needs renovation, the rooms are worn down,the heating did not work... More

It's a reasonably well located hotel close to the main attractions of tourist interest in the city of Minsk. It is a grand old hotel, but within the city meets perfeitamento options. It is possible to communicate reasonably with the hotel staff in English.

We stayed for a single night while on a bus tour. As many other reviewers have stated, this hotel is very much in the USSR style. The first room we were assigned smelled as if a waterlogged ashtray had sat under the bed for about 6 months. Fortunately we were able to switch to an identical, non stinky room. The... More

Hotel Planeta is what many would describe as typical Soviet hotel, but it's not bad actually. The building itself is not very appealing and the inside, including the room's are very out-dated, but it is clean, the staff are friendly and helpfull and one can generally say that the hotel has it's charm. It has a shop where you can... More
