TravelPod Member ReviewsIBB Hotel Minsk
Now, not many travelers say to themselves that they want to go to Minsk. However, should you find yourself in this capital of Europe this would not be a bad choice. It is not far from the city center of Minsk, (by bus,) and is not far from the airport.
The hotel is clean, if a little boring. Beware of conferences you are not attending, because the staff is slow at cleaning up after them. Should you want something to eat a a later hour, it is not likely to be received, but there is a chance. The staff speaks enough English to get by, but if there is a speaker of Russian in your group it may help better.
Breakfast is not included, but can be purchased, and it very large and good. Free amenities are provided in the bathroom and bedroom. The rooms are clean and tidy. They remind you of retro hostel rooms, but they will suffice you for your short stay.

There was too much information during the last few days. The thoughts are just floating in my head in no particular order, which drives me mad and can cause a headache if i don't do something about it. I was lucky to have an hour walk to the dorm from the uni after today's classes, and that helped me to organise at least some of my thoughts.Little steps towards my dreams are being made every day. Though sometimes there's can be a huge progress in putting my plans into life, just ...
... and put our watches back an hour. It was a long afternoon on the coach so John put on a short Russian comedy DVD for us to watch We arrived in Minsk about 4.30. It is a modern city as it was almost totally destroyed in WWII and has been rebuilt. It is mostly soviet style architecture. Our hotel is right on a lovely square. It was raining and quite cold, however we just had to walk a ...
... it costing me too much extra for being a tourist hunting for someone who understood enough English to get me to the hotel.
I had arranged for a local guide, Andrei, to meet me the following morning, Tuesday morning, to take me on a city tour and then in the afternoon on a WWII memorial kind of tour. Andrei was there perfectly on time and we were off on a whirlwind tour of Minsk.

... in there but they finished by around 7 or 8 so it was quiet at night. I went to the desk to see if housekeeping had found a left behind item from our group. Nope but they informed me that I could change rooms because there was a party in the courtyard tonight that might be finished around 11 or 12 or so. YES. They put me in a nice room with 2 beds which was so totally odd because my roommate and I had been in this room with a king sized bed and a cot. She ...
