This hotel was recommended to us by our Belarusian colleagues, as their office is on the same street as the hotel. The hotel was surprisingly good despite some of the negative reviews. The cigarette smoke was not so evident, so hotel management must have done something about it. The double room was big enough with a separate bedroom from the living room. There is also a refrigerator ideal for self catering. There was a cupboard with plates, glasses and cutlery as well. I requested for a non smoking room and I was pleased since for most Former Soviet Union Countries, a non smoking room is non smoking when no one smokes in it.
The hotel, although, not central, it is conveniently located near a metro station, so getting to the center is only a few minutes. There is a big shopping center, but only one decent restaurant nearby. The breakfast is adequate, and you will not leave the breakfast room hungry although hot and heavy meat and fish dishes may not be your cup of tea early in the morning. There are other items to choose from. Wifi is free, but remember that there is a limit per day. Remember to log off and get a new password if you have run out of minutes the next day. This is a hotel, which lives up to its name - a good value hotel for business and pleasure. The service is efficient, specially reception staff, who did their best to make us feel welcome. Definitely, a hotel I would recommend for future visitors of Minsk.
