Me and my wife stayed in the hotel in January 2010.
The hotel is not any up-to-date, it's a typical Soviet hotel so it's hard to write a review living in 21st century.
Location: Good. Right to the river Svisloch. 10 minutes walk to the main Orthodox cathedral and the historical part of Minsk.
Rooms and facilities: We stayed at the standard room. It was clean but had really old facilities. Actually it reminded me a usual Soviet apartment of 1980s.
Breakfast: The buffet breakfast is normal. You won't probably be delighted but you won't leave the restaurant hungry. BTW the buffet breakfast (not the continental one!) takes place on the 22nd floor so you also will enjoy a river view.
Internet: There are no free internet. Wi-Fi is offered for a very low price (about 35 eurocents per hour) but we didn't try it.
Staff: Soviet-style. All these people are friendly but don't expect too much from them.
If you don't want to spend money on Crowne Plaza or if you are interested in diving into the atmosphere of the Soviet Union of 1980s choose this hotel. It will be an interesting experience for you... if you are not a Soviet-born person 30+. :)
