Best Hotel in Minsk
This is where you should stay in Minsk - by far the best option, no problems with English, stylish rooms, great food. Staff went out of there way to be helpful.

Stayed in four rooms - 3 normal (smallish but nice) and the Ambassador Suite on 19th floor. Suite was great - super modern bathroom, large bedroom and sitting room. Appreciated the team putting a Christmas tree in the room for us for New Year.

Went to the super fun NY Eve party, very well organized and lots of fun for adults and kids. Also had fun at the bar at the top of the hotel (very busy so I suggest booking a table).

Breakfast was very good - amazing how good the standard has got in Minsk over the last 5 or so years.

Service was good everywhere in the hotel. Also convenient being connected to a local mall. Posted photo is view from the Ambassador suite.

great hotel
Stayed for 10 nights in January 2019. Was visiting family in Minsk.

The staff here are exceptional. They were very kind and helpful, always willing to help. The bar at the top of the hotel was closed, and they didn't make it well known to guests, which was a bit disapointing.

But overall this hotel is one of the better hotels I have stayed in around the world. Great service, clean rooms and good food.

Best Hilton staff in the World, Hotel not bad either!
We stayed for 4 nights in the DoubleTree Minsk having paid approx $120/night. We were given rooms on the 18th floor with stunning views over the city.

The staff at this hotel are simply the best. Most friendly and attentive at any hotel I've ever stayed at. Even ones costing 5 times as much.

A special that you to Anna on the concierge desk who (on Christmas Day) found me a hire car and had it delivered to the hotel, checked up that we were happy with it and gave us a fantastic itinerary of thinks to see in Belarus.

The rooms are of an excellent quality (better than usual Double tree rooms).

Hotel is well located, just 10 to 15 minutes walk the centre and metro. Taxis are plentiful outside.

The only small negative is that there lobby area isn't particularly great to hangout in. There's no lobby bar and the hotel has an entrance from a shopping centre, so it would be difficult to have a business meeting or similar here, the only other option is the bar / night club which doesn't open in the day or a restaurant (which was very good).

Would definitely return here if coming back to Minsk.

The deficits outweighed
There were some very good things about this hotel that were unfortunately mitigated by deficits. The main good things were:

1)    The room. Upgraded to a 16th floor junior suite on account of my Diamond Hhonors status, I had a bathroom that included a shower stall of about four square meters (including a marble bench with waterfall) and a separate bathtub overlooking the city. All the usual toiletries were on hand doubly. The room was spacious and comfortable.

2)    The location. The hotel is pretty central and in particular within a complex that includes a shopping mall with a very good supermarket.

Of course, staff was also nice, but that's been the case at all hotels I've stayed at in Minsk.

The main deficits for me were:

1)    No gym worthy of the name. Yes, they have something they call a fitness room, but it is minimally equipped, so that the whole thing seems to be there just so they can claim to have fitness facilities.

2)    No executive lounge. Doubletrees don’t usually have one anyway, but they certainly can when they want, and a property of the competition in Minsk belonging to a comparable brand does have quite a good one.

Though these were the main deficits, I was a bit disappointed to find that an otherwise decent breakfast selection (though no peanut butter, oddly) included potatoes with cheese on them. This is a completely gratuitous way of preventing anyone who avoids milk products from enjoying a standard breakfast item that doesn't even need cheese in the first place. The cheese can be offered on the side. The hotel may say that a guest could always request potatoes without cheese – I would counter by saying that a guest can just as easily request potatoes WITH cheese. The grilled tomatoes were also covered with something that appeared to include cheese.

Also, both other hotels in Minsk I stayed in on this occasion charged me an amount in local currency very consistent with the US dollar amount of the respective reservation. Only the Doubletree charged several percentage points more, for reasons unexplained. It struck me as an underhanded way of charging more than the agreed-upon price.

Perfect in Every Way
Every single member of the DT Team were consummately professional and we were always greeted with a smile, and polite and courteous service. A special mention to their head waiter Oleg, who was not only a fantastic waiter, but also a knowledgable tour guide and we would be very grateful if you could pass on our genuine thanks and appreciation. He is an absolute asset to your Team and should be commended. It is people like Oleg who make a wonderful stay just that bit more special ! We had dinner in Embers twice, drinks at the Bar a couple of times, and breakfast each day - the quality and presentation of the meals was on par with the best we have ever experienced. The gymnasium was a very pleasant surprise; very well kitted out and everything in perfect working order. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough; it is no surprise that it is ranked # 1 in Minsk. Thank you and regards, Tracey and Steve Summersby

Very good alternative in Minsk
I stayed in this hotel for just one night. Strengths are breakfast (ask the cook for something that you would like to have but don't see ready - I was e.g. promised, after an interaction with a restaurant supervior as part of a post-stay evaluation feedback, that not only porridge but also manka and pshenka (sorry my English breaks down here) can be served on request; another strength is a location - it's not on the center, but it's above a large mall with a great Eurotorg store - the best supermarket chain in Belarus; and another super strength are people at the reception. Very friendly and helpful. One big weaknesses - to me - heating via conditioning only. This concept simply breaks down for a continental climate like in Minsk. One cannot normally have say +21C inside when it's -15C outside and windy, and when you have floor-to-ceiling windows. That's subjective and personal, but next time I come here - which I will - is going to be summer :) good place overall. Thank you guys

Another successful business trip to Minsk!
I am just back from a 10-day international trip and stayed at the Double Tree Hilton in Minsk for 5 of those days. I was there on business, and have stayed at this hotel before in 2017. This was by far the best hotel that I have stayed in when travelling international (so far). It is a fairly new hotel and the staff were so efficient, friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and immaculate. The breakfast is second to none and the restaurants serve delicious food. I (along with my colleagues from work) were so impressed by the high standard of this hotel. I have ZERO complaints about this hotel. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending the Double Tree, and when I come back I will book here again (most likely in 2019).

Loved it!
I absolutely loved staying at DoubleTree Hilton Hotel Minsk! I arrived early and they checked me in at 11am which was very helpful. The staff were incredibly courteous, friendly and efficient. The amenities were brand new (I loved Grohe mixers in the shower!), everything was spotlessly clean. I stayed on the 12th floor with the view on the river, it was lovely, but I have visited a room without a view and it was equally nice. I had dinner at the Asian restaurant on the top floor, which was good, there were a lot of local jet-setters. The highlight of the stay was breakfast- it was the most plentiful, varied, amazingly delicious breakfast, which in addition to the usual stuff had freshly squeezed juices, honey in the comb, pancakes with quark and even chicken soup! I wish I could have breakfast like this one every day, it was fantastic!
There were some minor points that were worth noting. The temperature in the room was on a low-ish size, 20 degrees seemed a bit chilly to me (zero degrees outside). There was an AC which was blowing warm air, but I couldn't sleep with it being on as it was making noise. My TV wasn't working, perhaps batteries in the remote control needed replacement, but reception desk didn't have spare batteries.
Other than that, my short stay was absolutely fantastic and I will definitely come back to this wonderful hotel!

top quality
We received an email from them before we arrived welcoming us and asking how they could make the room ready for us. This was a nice touch and I replied asking for the room to be about 17-18.c When we arrived we were greeted with a smile and were told that they had adjusted the heating in the room to our preferred temperature!! The receptionist then went on to give us an interesting but gentle introduction to Minsk with advice on what to try.
Throughout our stay the staff were wonderful and the service spot on. Lovely room and amenities with a great view tempered only by the fog. Breakfast and room service was very good - the breakfast package is definitely worth it.
We had ballet tickets but due to me having knee problems we were worried about getting there and back - the staff arranged taxi there and pick up on return, they were also able to tell us start and finish time with needing to look it up and were genuinely interested in our thoughts on return.
I also strongly advise using their bar/club on level 21 and the attached coffee shop on the ground floor.

5+ Star Experience
During my stay, I encountered a staff that was willing to go above and beyond to make sure my every need and request was taken care of, to my complete satisfaction quickly, and at the highest quality of service. The room was itself was extremely comfortable and well cared for each day. Anything I asked for, was provided. The room service was always well prepared and, most importantly, delivered quickly, which I very much appreciated. I found the restaurant to be extremely well-run, by a staff that delivered a high quality experience, and with food that was always well-prepared and delicious. But truthfully, I was most impressed and truly touched by the people who I met and who took care of me each and every day. I was treated by everyone as though I was some they truly cared about. I believe everyone was honestly concerned about making sure I was ok and enjoying not only my staff at the hotel, but in Minsk, Belarus itself. It is not an exaggeration to say that I developed real friendships with these people in particular during my stay. I enjoyed the time they spent to get to know me and to help me learn more about Minsk, Belarus, and how they worked to make sure I was getting a 5-star experience during my visit. I am already missing each of them and look forward to seeing them all again.

Best in Minsk
I have visited the place in July and indeed its the best place to stay in Minsk. Its brand new premises as well as the terrase on top floor makes the place an exceptional place to stay in the city. The rooms are just fine and the wifi are extremely fast and free. The breakfast is superb and the staff is very helpful and all english speaking. Its location is just 5’ walk from Lenina street and same from old city center. Also close to 2-3 nice restaurants and bars where you can have a really nice outing. Lots of places to meet people if the purpose of visit is business. There are cafes and verandahs available suitable for meetings and friendly discussion. The bar on top floor can keep one busy all night.

Best Hotel Experience
I have spent the last 28 days crossing Russia on the Trans Siberian Railway with numerous stops along the way where we stayed at 4-star boutique hotels while avoiding the big chains. Easily, this is the BEST hotel of our trip. The people at the front desk are fluent in English and incredibly service-oriented. They have superb concierge service, an extensive and impressive breakfast buffet, rooms with views, and a great location in that it is adjacent to a beautiful mall with a grocery store on the lowest level that gets 4-stars without question. Our concierge arranged for us to have a driver take us around on a 3-hour city tour this morning since I am sporting a knee injury and am unable to walk. He got us tickets to the circus for tomorrow night and has made all our other transport and meal reservations. Rooms are nice-sized with king beds, wonderful bedding, strong WiFi, and all the usual amenities. Because I don't eat refined sugar, I gave my chocolate chip cookie that is given to you upon check-in to my friend. Not long after, someone came to my room with a small basket of green apples instead. What a thoughtful thing for them to do! The hotel goes up 18 or so floors, so I would recommend asking for a room on a higher floor just to maximize your view.
