No complementary water in the room - so that to make the one who's just come into town refrain from wandering around to well explore a quite derelict area with low-lit streets and no supermarkets in view around the hotel. Despite the self-contained fact Minsk is a chaotic city with randomly situated networks of retailers which suit only the tastes and whims of people in power, its governing bodies could think of its reputation of a city in front of the global community. Instead of offering catering at competitive prices and supermarkets of standard values Minsk boasts of overpricing restaurants, cafes, offering food of dubious quality at exaggerated prices, casinos which the town abounds in to satisfy tasteless but luscious Russian streams, those who unfortunately create the customs, habits, trends, and design of Minsk streets, and finally tasteless in all respects clubs (awful ones). What would one expect from the city and its hotels?
Friendly staff, basic conveniences are provided - simple toiletries, hair dryer, etc. The single room I had was a big one although it was not a very comfy one with moving mattress and sheet covering it.
