With a name like Sputnik, what else could it be? It's a Soviet-era hotel, but it has been modernised and the staff are helpful and friendly. I wasn't expecting too much, and I was pleasantly surprised. For a couple of nights, it was absolutely fine.

We stayed one night as we landed in Minsk late in the evening and then needed to drive to Mogilev the next day. Very helpful staff, but nothing to do around the area of the hotel, so it's a bus ride in to the centre. Would use again, but only as an overnight stop over.

You must pay for your stay in advance which is not good if you don't know how long you will stay, so it's inconvenient to pay every day. I had informed them I will be staying at least 1 month but it could change any day, so I paid 1 week in advance and the 1st day after 1 week,... More

We choose this hotel because hotels around Minsk are soo expensive and this one was quiet near center ( 4 minutes by taxi ) . From the outside it looks like typical communist architecture hotel, inside is much better. Rooms are modestly equipped without AC, bathroom was very clean and nice with all "one time use" gadgets ( toothbrush, shaving... More

Never been to the restaurant in the evening, burt the load old misic and not the best smell - makes some bad impression. The only good... More

I agree with most of what I read. I was a solo traveller and was in a single room. No airconditioning which then needed a window open facing a main road. I think next time there are a lot more central options that for a little bit extra spend would be a much better experience. Breakfast was very good. However,... More

I have been there only once and I can't say that I would go there again. The main problem is that the quality does not correspond to the price. In the room you will find only a table, chair, a bed and a Tv that shows only few channels. The room is so small that you can hardly walk between... More

They are real Homo sovieticus examples. I woul not recommend to stay there,... More

This place was clean and efficient. The breakfast was excellent. There were many items, constantly replenished, and very tasty. If I return to Minsk, will have no problem with staying here again. if there was a way to indicate 3.5 stars on Tripadvisor, that is what I would give, as I believe it is slightly beyond average. In North America,... More

We have stayed at "Sputnik" one night at the end of May 2012 with a group of my colleagues (25 people) from different Scandinavian countries. The hotel is well located, not far from the city center and has free parking in front of the building. It's infrastructure is not bad comparing with other 3 stars hotels in Belarus. Rooms are...
