Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I have never seen so small room. Actually the bathroom is almost as big as the bedroom.
Nevertheless it is clean and staff is ok.
Breakfast is just not acceptable for those like me that cannot eat salty at breakfast.
I do not recommend this hotel, some others in Minsk are better for the same price (expensive anyway!).

This is supposed to be the best hotel in the country and it probably is but keep in mind where you are and what standards you should expect. It is a typical soviet style hotel, which once upon the time must have been grand and not much has been done since then.

First of all the location of the hotel is great - super central and convenient. The hotel is big, customer service isn't bad. Rooms are small and old school. Wifi only in the lobby, breakfast was good.

Very basic state owned hotel, with poor and cold rooms, underdeveloped and illogically designed common facilities and unfriendly service. On a positive side, the hotel is safe and has good location with convenient access to major spots. Not expensive taxis are available always in front of hotel. Try to find another option, such as Europe hotel.

Deeply disappointing stay. Great location, but the room is small and tired. The bedside light doesn't work and the wifi is very, very slow. The most frustrating thing, however, is the gym - I'm on a health programme at the moment and chose this hotel as it had a gym.

But this evening when I went down to use it, I'm told that I'm not allowed to. Hotel guests are only allowed in between 7am and 10am. Not much good if you've got meetings starting at 8am.

I stayed in standard room. Two beds, small room, yet with good air ventilation - the non-smoking floor had no smoke smells as it often happens in other hotels.
Bathroom is clean.
WiFi in the room had excellent speed - iTunes had downloaded several movies within 5 hours. Impressive for a free internet access.
Breakfast was very good in the restaurant. This restaurant serve terrible meals for dinner - don't waste your time and money there, go somewhere else.
The gym wasn't accessible for guests at 5pm. They say, that the gym is booked for dance classes every day starting from afternoon. So don't believe hotel description, that they have a gym. Also, running outside is a challenge as hotel is located in the downtown with no parks or stadium in the neighborhood.

We also stayed at this hotel as part of our Globus tour. It is a nice hotel in a lovely city. The three story underground shopping mall is across from the hotel. We had a lovely dinner at the hotel with vodka and champagne. The bar was a nice place to meet up and share some stories in the evening. Our room was very nice. The buffet breakfast in the morning was a bit different than most of our breakfasts. It was more like a brunch with salads and many desserts. Cool, huh?

Within walking distance of many features in this lovely city. Staff incredibly helpful, lovely appointments, rooms large and comfortable but breakfast was limited in range and ran out before the group had finished.
