Orbita Hotel Minsk Reviews
A Good Surprise Jun 14, 2006
We stayed here as part of Contiki. It was a pleasant hotel for our one night stay. The rooms was decent, but the dinner was dodgy. It was some type of Chicken Kiev which was still pink.
There was a good supermarket next door and Mc Donald's was across the street for your convenience.Be forewarned: the beds are hard, and the sheer curtains let in all light, which makes sleeping more difficult. We couldn't have slept without "chemical enhancement" (sleeping aids such as anti-histamine). Our friends had rooms on the east-facing street side, and the morning sun is a brutal wake-up force. Our room faced the back of the hotel, which was quieter, but the afternoon sun was so strong my husband had to put on his brimmed hat in order to sit at the desk and use his computer! After several nights we pulled a blanket from the duvet cover and hung it in the window to block out the light.
Also be warned that the rooms do not have a clock or a hair dryer. We were, however, surprised and delighted by the excellent strength of the water pressure in the shower.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel, just watch out for the Lady's of the Night outside in the parking lot.
